Leftist Magazine Calls for a Military Coup by Obama


The stench of progressive desperation is filling the air and desperate people begin calling for desperate measures. Tikkun Magazine, formerly an influential voice of the Jewish left, now a distant memory with a broken website, floats at the bottom of the leftist well. And so it’s almost appropriate that the insane call for a military coup by Obama and a second civil war appeared in the virtual pages of Tikkun.

The editorial “Obama Must Use Military to Ensure a Free and Fair Election” comes from one Jonathan Klate, but it’s endorsed by Tikkun editors and headlined by a desperate call from Tikkun’s editorial staff to relay the whole “Let’s Use the Military to End the Rule of Law in America” up to Obama’s people and the mainstream media.

Klate’s thesis is that Obama would naturally win the election if not for all the pesky voter fraud regulations. Maybe he can also explain what Republican suppressive mechanism has led to huge turnouts for Romney and low turnouts for Obama in their campaign appearances. His answer is for Obama to use the military to seize control of the voting stations and use armed force to suppress all state voting laws, so the illegal aliens and repeat voters can have their voting orgy.

It’s illegal of course, unconstitutional and a declaration of war on the republic… but since Obama has decided that he can act as the legislative and the executive branch, then Tikkun Magazine is probably thinking that he can take over for the states too.

Klate’s editorial already calls on Obama to ignore the Supreme Court, which would assign him the powers of all three branches of government making him a tyrant.  And after that, why not a military coup?

“The presence of armed forces would underscore the serious nature of the threats to democracy posed by the tactics of disenfranchisement being deployed by those determined to wrest the presidency from Barack Obama by any means necessary.”

Yes. The presence of armed forces usually underscores a serious threat to democracy… by the man dispatching them. The proposal to win an election by sending troops to protect voter fraud would put Obama one step closer to being Castro or Chavez and would mean the end of America. The very fact that the left is seriously proposing such a thing shows just how unhinged the ranks of the left have become.

    Idiots everywhere!

      You'd better be talking about the people that think Obama should make a coup. Otherwise, look in the mirror.

  • BLJ

    Bring it on. Me and my friends are ready with itchy trigger fingers.

      One of the respondants to Klate's article mentioned 300 million guns and the fear the owners might use them. He could be right.

    The left won't use the military, they couldn't. The military of today is filled with highly educated people, and these people were not educated in the Leftist Universities. They could however accomplich their coup by using a group that is already their ally; The Fraternal Order of Police and the Police Patrolmens Association. The military leadership would resist a call like this, police, and more importantly their Union leadership wouldn't.

    Crazy lefty magazine is crazy.

    It's not impossible for this to happen but this just shows you just how loopy and out of touch the very radical Left is.

    There may indeed come a time when the military has to intervene. They will not come in on the side of a tin-pot dictator wannabe like Comrade O. They will defend the Constitution.

    Obama should use the military to stage a coup…. May I ask, what military? Last I heard, the military isn't exactly fond of him. I don't know that the military would back him up.

    Their oath is to the United States, not Obama.

    Of course for Obama to stage a military coup he'd have to have a military and the last time I looked they aren't exactly big supporters. As noted by kateyleigh the oath taken by the military is to the Constitution, not the president.

    Idiot Leftists. You can't fix stupid.

    And that is why leftists are just as dangerous- if not more so- than Islamists.

    No more unhinged than Lenin was. But then Lenin actually had his own army that was loyal to him.

    (A leftist coup is part of the background of a science fiction novel I’m presently writing.)

    I am always surprised that this kind of thinking still permeates a forward thinking society. I don't know what disappoints me more; the fact that this is written by a supposed Jew (me being a proud Jew and member of the Jewish Republican Coalition) or the simple idea that a coup could even take place. Theses idiots sound more like radical Muslims and would have voted for Hitler if he was listed as a democrat.

      Reminds me of Denis Leary's joke "If hitler had Coke there'd be jews in the bathroom! 'I know you didn't do it *snrrrrrrrrrrrt* I like your mustache! *snnnnnnnnrt* *—-ing Himmler!" *snrrrrrrrrrt*'

    Too bad the military won't support Obama, because he doesn't support them.
    Only a leftist idiot would miss that fact.
