Drudge pushing tinfoil hat nutjob Alex Jones' call for secession and "second American Revolution"


and since Drudge always operates with the blessing of the GOP, we can only assume the party leaders on he right are giving a blessing to this treasonous, idiotic rhetoric.



A headline on Drudge's site "RADIO HOST CALLS FOR 'SECOND AMERICAN REVOLUTION'..." leads to a nutty article on the birther/troofer king Jones' nutty website (I'm not linking to either) which contains crap like this, which tries to push the idea that the .002 percent of Americans who clicked on Internet secession petitions represent a "movement":
Radio host Alex Jones today called for a second American Revolution led by states who would secede from the federal government and reconstitute the Republic under the terms of the Declaration of Independence, bill of rights and constitution. (Read the transcript here).
The call for Americans to rally behind a restoration of the Republic and the bill of rights comes on the back of a burgeoning secessionist movement that has swept the country with residents from all 50 states submitting petitions to the White House calling for states to withdraw from the union and form their own independent governments. The petitions have received a combined number of signatures totaling over a million.



So these aging teabaggers lose an election and they want to re-fight the civil war.
Why do conservatives hate America so much?

3. other than Erik Erickson, has anyone on the right denounced this fringe talk?

or is the party completely willing to again give a wink and a nod to the crazies, as they did with the birthers and the graders?

8. Who exactly is supposed to denounce it that they will listen to?

We do have a first amendment in this country. They can say whatever they want.

10. If well-connected folks in the GOP media machine (Drudge, Hannity) are embracing & pushing it

without any criticism from their party, then the GOP leadership owns this stupidity and should be linked with it in any discussions of it.

Ditto for Trump and the racist birthers being courted by the party.

11. A real secession would be awful.

Simply because states are not allowed to secede. Therefore, the government would have no choice but to make them rejoin - starting with strong words, and eventually with tanks and bombs if they didn't rejoin.

7. Money

Alex Jones lastest "Money Bomb" was a failure as far as i know. He thinks that 9/11 Conspiracy Theories don't get him enough money, so he is going the secession path now. Maybe David Icke can give him some advise to get more money out of fools.
