Fox News analyst tells Tea Party group he can lead a military coup against Obama

A retired Army general and Fox News analyst told a Tea Party group that he would lead a military coup against the U.S. government, if only reluctantly.

Paul Vallely, a retired major general and senior military analyst for the conservative news channel, told the Surprise, Arizona, Tea Party Patriots during a Dec. 3 speech that other retired military personnel and veterans groups had contacted him about the possibility.

“I had a call this afternoon from Idaho, the gentleman said, ‘If I give you 250,000 Marines to go to Washington, will you lead them?’” Vallely said as the group laughed and gasped. “I said, ‘Yes, I will, I’ll surround the White House and I’ll surround the Capitol building, but it’s going to take physical presence to do things.”

Vallely, who has suggested a variety of extra-constitutional remedies to remove President Barack Obama from office, said extraordinary means were necessary to achieve the legislative results he wanted.

“Writing letters to these senators and congressmen, I am so frustrated because nothing happens,” Vallely said. “I’m not inciting a revolution, but we’ve got to get more physical and stand up and protest.

He said such a protest would be a continuation of Tea Party activism.

  1. At times, the thought of getting rid of Obama is inspiring – he is abject failure and disappointment and with his NSA stance, is spineless (to name a few failings). But to replace him with a tea party hero? Nah, better the devil you know. Just goes to show how bankrupt the U.S. two party system is. What really needs to happen is a new form of government that allows voice to multiple parties (constituencies) while draining the flood of special interest money that floats the current lot of incumbents in both parties, as well as the wing-nuts in the tea party.

  2. Isn’t there a law against conspiring to overthrow the legitimate government of the US?

  3. America – the land of the free! Unless you are a democratically elected President whose policies and/or skin colour we don’t like. In which case we reserve the right to cast democracy aside and overthrow you by force.
