A new Newsmax column advocates a military coup to unseat Obama or usher in a period of “shared responsibility” between military government and a ceremonial Obama presidency. “A coup is not an ideal option, but Obama’s radical ideal is not acceptable or reversible.”
The author, John L. Perry, claims not to be ‘advocating’, only describing what he says is already being considered and is the best option available. But give it a read and you be the judge.
And just so we’re totally clear, no, I’m not expecting any military coups. This is just one more nugget to add to the backdrop list of incitement now coming from the right.
