A Republican judge in Lubbock, Texas told a reporter on Tuesday that he and other officials are making plans for the possibility of “civil war” if President Barack Obama is reelected, warning that should the president cede control of the country to the United Nations, he’d prevent troops from entering the county.
“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the U.N., and what is going to happen when that happens?” Lubbock County Judge Tom Head asked a reporter for a local Fox News affiliate during an interview that was supposedly about county business.
“I’m thinking the worst,” he deadpanned. “Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy. Now what’s going to happen if we do that? If the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops.”
Head concluded: “I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County, okay? So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘you’re not coming in here.’ And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him. I said, ‘You gonna back me?’ He said, ‘Yeah, I’ll back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”
Yeah. A sitting GOP judge in Texas says this. Advocating open rebellion against the President. Advocating violent, armed resistance against the US. A sitting. Judge. Openly admitting this to a reporter, in an interview.
How is this man a judge? He is insane. He is certifiably insane. Bonkers. Nuts. Not only should this guy not be a judge or any sort of public official, he shouldn't be outside jail for stuff like this.
The real problem is millions of voting Americans will agree with this nutjob. And you'd better believe they will vote against Obama. That's where we are right now in this country: judges openly calling for armed insurrection against the President of the United States.
The Road to Oblivion, indeed. More on this from Tom Levenson:
Head’s judgeship is actually a county-executive position under Texas nomenclature. Thus, Mr. Romney and Mr Ryan, he is an elected representative and a member of your party. I ask you: do you repudiate this call to treason?
If not, why not?
Good question. Won't be answered though most likely.
