e founder of the Oath Keepers group suggested that U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) be “hung by the neck until dead” for treason – as the Republican president of the Arizona Senate sat beside him.
Stewart Rhodes, a Ron Paul delegate at the 2008 GOP convention, accused McCain, the eventual Republican nominee that year, of treason last week at an event in Tempe, reported Right Wing Watch.
Rhodes and other Paul supporters complained that the “GOP good-ol’-boy network” had conspired to shut them out in 2008 and 2012 at statewide conventions across the country so they could get “their preordained, anointed candidate who would go along with the program of the destruction of this country.”
“John Cain is a traitor to the Constitution,” Rhodes said, misstating the senator’s name. The crowd, which was gathered to argue against a proposed convention of the states to rewrite the constitution, cheered enthusiastically. Video from the event shows state Senate President Andy Biggs seated next to Rhodes and former sheriff Richard Mack, although the lawmaker’s reaction to the remarks are not shown.
“He should be tried for treason before a jury of his peers — which he would deny you,” Rhodes continued. “He supports your denial of a jury trial, he supported the (National Defense Authorization Act) saying that he could just have the president slam you into a brig in North Carolina or South Carolina or wherever else he wanted to, try you by military tribunal and have you executed.”
“He would deny you the right for trial to jury, but we will give him a trial for jury, and then after we convict him, he should be hung by the neck until dead,” he added. “But that was their candidate.” The cheers were more muted as he specified how he would like to see the Vietnam veteran and senator executed.
No doubt, this sensational comment by Rhodes should attract some new members to his organization, but in the end it’s just another indicator that many who considered as leaders in the “liberty movement” may be nothing more than petty dictators themselves…
Pine Cloud - all sounds legal to me. and constitutional. is someone upset that he called McCain the traitor he is? or that he correctly assumes the little bastard would be convicted by a jury of his peers?i know that is a slam to the jury.
Mike Lashewitz - When I think Of John “Songbird” McCain who collaborated with the enemy within hours of his capture, and then I think of how the criminal political media painted him as a “hero” while thousands of other POWs were tortured and killed. I can only see him as a traitor and the fact that he was ALLOWED to run for president after all that makes me sick. We have Edward Snowden who blows the whistle on criminal NSA US Government monitoring of every facet of our lives and he is vilified even though he has not endangered ANYONE and a traitorous collaborator makes it into high political office? Why is it that I expect traitor Bowe Bergdahl to run for president in the future? Because the USA is ASS backwards.
Ideas Time - The guy, traitor, JM has helped send how many of our kids to death and you think he should be spared a date with a rope? Why is that when someone speaks the truth writers want to marginalize them. Makes we wonder who’s payroll they are on.
Sammy - Just the type of attitude that produces government “exercises” like Jade Helm.
Rollo Smith - Too bad McAmnesty didn’t die back in ‘Nam!
