Hey, remember when a majority of Americans voted against George W. Bush yet he became President by, let’s say, “less than ideally democratic” means? Were there any mainstream liberals calling for an overthrow of the government? I can’t recall any, and a search finds none.
Yet we are constantly hearing such talk from the right concerning Obama — who won twice by huge margins. These sore losers are not just some crazed radicals (both parties have those) — these are people who get coverage on legitimate talk shows and on legitimate (albeit right-wing) blogs.
The gun lovers are mostly the ones who make these arguments, as if treason were patriotic, but other un-American right-wingers apparently think not getting their way because they are in the minority is the exact same thing as tyranny. It must be hard to live in a world when you are this delusional, but there you go. (Here’s where all the people advocating the overthrow of our democratically elected government get mad that I called them “un-American.” There’s that delusion I spoke of; how else can you classify someone who is so against democracy?)
Of course, none of this is too surprising, as some conservatives are still upset about the Civil War and make excuses for the slave-owning Southerners who committed treason.
