In the “Whitehouse Watchdog” column, editor Ponch McPhee says that America cannot survive four more years under Obama, a “political socialist ideologue” who is “unlike anything world history has ever witnessed or recognized.” McPhee argues that Americans will have no option “but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November:”


That should read they will have no option if they are not in jail for sedition.

I sure hope that the DHS or FBI is all over this group.

Are there more such groups on the loose?

Dam them newsletters keep resurfacing! Oh wait, that's the Ron Paul newsletters. Carry on.
But in all seriousness, we cannot have another 4 years of Obama. Armed revolt doesnt sound too bad.

I remember on Democratic Underground they had a bunch of stuff about revolts and riots if John Kerry lost the election to Bush43. There are nutz on all both sides. Nothing ever comes of all the huff'n and puff'n.

Thanks for telling the WHOLE STORY here--not. Here's what the county repulbican party has to say about their EX-EDITOR:


To Whom It May Concern:

The referenced comment is included in an Editorial comment made by the former Newsletter Editor. It was written in March before a change in the Greene County Republican Committee (GCRC) leadership, and clearly illustrates the needed change for leadership via recent elections. The newsletter also includes the following disclaimer - "Note: Content of the newsletter does not reflect the opinion of the Republican Party whole or in part, all contents offered are individual. GCRC is not addressing anyone living or dead in regards to this content."

The Greene County Republican Committee denounces such language and does not subscribe to that thinking. The membership of the GCRC is composed of hard working, law abiding Americans who raise families, pay taxes, generously serve their community and respect the Presidency of the United States. As a editorial comment, it is the musing of one person, not the party.

Such editorial comments are protected by 1st Amendment to the Constitution, as were the controversial comments made by Ted Nugent, Bill Maher, anti-American preacher Jeremiah Wright ('God damn America.' - Blames USA for 9/11), disgraced Presidential Czar Van Jones and others.

Perhaps the author was borrowing from Thomas Jefferson who wrote, "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms, is as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." He also wrote, "And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the right of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost over a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

While we believe this election is critical to the direction of the future of this great nation, we do not believe that if the results end up with the re-election of Barack Obama, that will necessitate what the author suggests.

Gary E. Lowe
Chairman
Greene County Republican Committee

This is yet another example of half-azz'd research by members of ATS, who don't take the time to check the veracity of their sources, who don't follow through and see what the controversy is all about. Here you have someone who saw an article in a left wing publication and simply repeated it. If anyone had bothered to follow the links in this left wing's own publication, it would have been easy to figure out that this editorial had caused a great deal of controversy within this county-level republican organization itself and that, as a result, the people espousing this point of view (of armed revolution) are no longer in office. They were voted out by Republicans.

It's obvious that people would like very much to blame the Republican Perty for fomenting revolution, then have them condemned for sedition, when in fact, what happened is the exact opposite. The Republican Party condemned the very idea of armed revolution.

Of course, now that Obama is in power we here of "sedition." When Bush was in power, the same thing was advocated by the left, but the word "sedition" was never brought up.

Nice attempt by the county GOP to backpedal. Don't you wish it were that easy to replace someone in government. The fact remains their ex editor (ELECTED?) made the statement. That alone makes him (and those who elected him?) eligible for a FEMA camp IF ANY EXIST.

BTW I have used the word 'sedition' many times in the last 34 years regardless of party affiliation. IMO anyone who voted for or endorses the patriot act is guilty of tyranny and borderline sedition.

Thanks for revealing the WHOLE story but I doubt that the final chapter has been written. And since you have researched this extensively (source?), what was the vote to remove the ex editor or might that prove to be embarrassing?

Well the headline is obviously sensationalist and false (not blaming you OP, I know it is the headline of the article) They didn't call for armed revolution, they said that Obama would force it upon them aka leaving us with no other option. Personally, I would prefer an armed revolution to forced socialism or communism. All 3 options are pretty bad though.

I don't think anybody would really "want" an armed revolution. I have a line in the sand though and I would imagine most everyone else does as well. Cross that line and you will see an armed revolution of one. I think what the quoted article was saying was that a 2nd term with Obama would see the executive branch cross the line in the sand for millions of Americans at the same time. Honestly, I kinda think that is likely.

High unemployment is one of the main factors, I bet you would be feeling different if you didn't have a job or any means to make money.

Liberal cops are few so these guys will not be arrested. Cops tend to side with like minded people. One can see that in the drug business, now run by cops. They arrested the hippies and let the para-military guys take over, because they are from the same mold.

He said "...for we shall not have any coarse but armed revolution should WE fail with the power of the vote in November ~ "

You said 'Obama would force it upon them' How about putting the blame on all those responsible for putting Obama in office? That would be those who put him on the ballot, those who vote for him and whoever administers the oath of office?

As for Obama's distasteful legislation, does not Congress play any role in enacting legislation?

I think the ex editor got shafted for speaking his 'protected speech' mind, but that is part of US politics.

If any critic had done REAL research we would know how many are in the county GOP organization, the vote when the ex editor was elected, how long the ousted editor held the position, his other editorials, whether the ouster election was scheduled or called as a special election and the vote results of the ouster election.

Is THAT the level of research required to post on ATS? Holy smoke! I'm going to have stop posting then. Or would you consider cutting a little slack?

The level I described, brief as it may be, would only be found in quality 'journalism' but ATS is 99% cheap tabloid crap so you have plenty of slack.

Human nature includes both guilt by association (all county GOP members share the view) and denying the ugly truth (SOME share it but will conceal such from the public), both of which come in to play in the OP article. It would require extensive research to correct/expose these respectively.

So I should blame everyone but the actual person who is doing the actions I disagree with? Also, how in the world can you blame Chief Justice John Roberts? So the person who administered the oath of office is somehow to blame for the actions that Obama has taken? Also you say I should blame the voters who Obama lied to in order to gain power? Gimme a break... That is ridiculous.



As for Obama's distasteful legislation, does not Congress play any role in enacting legislation?


Well, did I ever say they didn't? Sure Congress has had a role in it as well but do you not realize that Obama passes his own laws by executive order?




I think the ex editor got shafted for speaking his 'protected speech' mind, but that is part of US politics.


Oh... so it's not right that this person got fired for speaking his mind but we should just accept that because that's just how things are. Brilliant! I will remember not to get mad the next time I am assaulted or mugged because crime is a part of society. It just happens and is just the way it is so no big deal. Thanks for the life lesson.

I am not sure why you have addressed this to me. All of those research items have nothing to do with my reply to you. Perhaps you should do this research for yourself since this is your thread and you seem to be the only person interested in finding out.

The purpose of my reply to you was to explain how the statements could be taken a different way. It seems apparent to me what this person meant by those words are not how they have been taken by you or the author from your link. I then tried to explain to you what I thought those words meant. Please let me know what any of the above quoted text has to do with that? Good day.

I'd love to see an armed rebellion against the corporate control of the Democratic AND Republican parties myself, but I am not calling for one.

At this point it's the only thing that has any possible chance of getting through to our government that we won't stand for their shenanigans ANYMORE!

We are supposed to be a government FOR and BY THE PEOPLE, not the CORPORATIONS.

Really? Obama is the most extreme example of socialist ideologue in the history of the world? I knew the education system was going downhill, but this is ridiculous.

Relax sage. I fail to see how Obama has FORCED anything. If you have issues with him blame those who put him in office! Simple logic?.

If you have issues with legislation blame Congress. Simple logic?

If you have issues with me blame.. blame.. blame.. mom? public education? government? ATS?
