You heard it here first: The outrage that has been simmering on the right since President Obama's election in 2008 is about to boil over. It will make the claims that he's a crypto-Muslim communist bent on destroying America seem like trifling schoolyard taunts. It will make those early Tea Party rallies seem like -- well, actual tea parties. Here's a snippet from the official call to arms:
America is in its greatest time of peril in since the Founding Fathers bravely fought in the Revolutionary War. Lady Liberty is calling YOU to stand up, to speak out, to take to the streets and DEMAND that the corrupt tyrant be removed from the White House, and all of those who colluded with him in his crimes against the United States be held accountable to the full extent of the law, with the maximum sentences handed down upon them.
When you grow old, would you rather tell your grandchildren that you stood up for Freedom, or would you rather tell them you did nothing as America fell to the iron fisted grip of tyranny?
NOW is your chance to honor the sacrifices of the Founding Fathers, and do your part to preserve their dream of truth, justice and liberty for ALL!
The uprising begins this weekend, when activists will follow in the footsteps of their revolutionary forebears and stand on highway overpasses armed with "Impeach Obama" signs.
Seriously. There's a newly formed group called Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment. Its Texas chapter, which boasts at least one state legislator (The Woodlands Republican Steve Toth), is rallying the troops at 11 a.m. Saturday to overpasses along Central Expressway and Highway 121, with the epicenter on Park Lane.
But that's only the beginning, at least according to Texas chapter leader and self-described "New Age Patriot" David Dunn. He warns in an email that "[t]hese rallies are to continue until the POTUS is impeached."
In that case, they might want to bring some chairs.
