Tea Party Leader Calls For Violent Overthrow Of Government Over Health Care Ruling (VIDEO)

Author: June 30, 2012 7:17 am

Treason. It’s a word that conservatives don’t seem to understand. In their minds, treason is when the duly and legally elected government passes a law that they don’t agree with. In other words, if Democrats do it, it’s treason, but when conservatives do it, it’s patriotic. And, of course, after the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare is constitutional, conservatives whined about the decision and some took the ultimate step of calling for violently taking over the government.


In what looks to be a repeat of history, some conservatives are calling for open civil war against the United States government for passing laws they don’t agree with. On Thursday, Mississippi Tea Party Leader Roy Nicholson took the Supreme Court’s health care ruling as a sign that it’s time for an armed rebellion against the government that we the people chose for ourselves. On the state Tea Party website , Nicholson referred to the government as a gang of criminals who must be violently subdued in the name of the Constitution.

“When a gang of criminals subvert legitimate government offices and seize all power to themselves without the real consent of the governed their every act and edict is of itself illegal and is outside the bounds of the Rule of Law. In such cases submission is treason. Treason against the Constitution and the valid legitimate government of the nation to which we have pledged our allegiance for years. To resist by all means that are right in the eyes of God is not rebellion or insurrection, it is patriotic resistance to invasion. …May all of us fall on our faces before the Heavenly Judge, repent of our sins, and humbly cry out to Him for mercy on our country. And, may godly courageous leaders rise up in His wisdom and power to lead us in displacing the criminal invaders from their seats and restore our constitutional republic.”

Here’s the video:

In other words, Nicholson and the Tea Party want to literally force anyone who doesn’t agree with their twisted world view out of office at gunpoint. THIS is what treason really looks like. The American people voted for the lawmakers who passed Obamacare but because these Tea Party fanatics don’t agree with it, they think they have the right to initiate an armed insurrection to get their way, conveniently overlooking the fact that the individual mandate was a conservative idea in the first place, and that the law itself is a free market based law, rather than a real government takeover of health care. Too many conservatives these days would rather have government by the gun instead of government by the vote. That’s incredibly dangerous and has nearly destroyed America in the past. And the sad part is that Republicans are allowing these statements to stand instead of denouncing them immediately. It’s like Republicans are actually hopeful that gun violence will occur. These statements by conservative extremists and the silence by Republicans is the real treason and every sane American should stage their own rebellion against this violent rhetoric at the voting booth this November.

  • wow people never stop amazeing me for those who don’t know me I’m a law student and therefor an analogical thinker. I brake down information then process it bit by bit this allows me to see the truths in information and by such eliminate any faulty information that doesn’t pan out with that being said here we go.
    First off before we start turning people into the FBI we might want to listen to what is said and not hear what we want. “In other words, Nicholson and the Tea Party want to literally force anyone who doesn’t agree with their twisted world view out of office at gunpoint.” listen to the video at 7.25 mr Nicholson plainly says and i quote ” what we have to do is place nonstop forceful but peaceful pressure on our politions”
    Next “The American people voted for the lawmakers who passed Obamacare but because these Tea Party fanatics don’t agree with it, they think they have the right to initiate an armed insurrection to get their way,” the man clearly states a 7.20 to not give the officials reason to accuse us of insurrection.
    “Too many conservatives these days would rather have government by the gun instead of government by the vote. That’s incredibly dangerous and has nearly destroyed America in the past.” this was the statement that I had to laugh at the most. when we go to school and you take the class called HISTORY do we read the books or just tear out the pages to roll up some marjuana in it cause some folks are either on some good drugs even without obamacare or they haven’t paid attention. How do we think america even gained this country i can assure you it was not by takeing a vote of the american indian nations or by pleading with the british.We are all fast to drop an uneducated oppinion as well as condemn someone for theirs when what we should be doing is paying attention educateing ourselves and tring to further knowledge rather than spreading misinformation.
    And lastly to the statement “Most christians have no idea what the bible says, because they have never read it. Even fewer of them know what the basic tenets of their particular denomination are” I agree here so many hide behind what they want the bible to say instead of what it really does. although people want the chistian nation to be a peaceful one and we all attain to acheive that but it is not biblical nor historical. I’d like to end with a quote from one of our founding fathers since it seems what all the huff is over is an american principle who better to speak on it than a founding father. Benjamin Franklin “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither safety nor liberty” “This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins….a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles…is absolutely necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty and keep a government free”

  • Why hasn’t this guy been arrested or at least investigated for advocating the violent overthrow of the U.S. government? For that matter, considering all the Communists and Socialists that have been arrested and investigated over the years, why have Republicans and GOP supporters who also have violated the Smith Act NOT ever been arrested or investigated?

    Here’s just a comparatively small sample:

    Former Texas GOP Secretary of State Roger William and Republican “constitutional pastor” Stephan Broden.

    In a “Whitehouse Watchdog” column of the March newsletter, editor Ponch McPhee calls for an “armed revolution” if President Obama is re-elected in November.

    Loyal followers of Sean Hannity on his website . . . [tried] to gauge which form of out-and-out treason his listeners favor most. Results? “Armed Rebellion.”

    According to a new [2007] BBC report, Prescott Bush (father of George H.W. and grandfather of George W.) was accused of being involved in a plot to overthrow the U.S. government and replace it with a fascist dictatorship in 1933.

    In a column published Sept. 30, 2009, Newsmax’s [a right wing website] John L. Perry wrote that there is a “gaining” possibility that the military will stage a coup to “resolve the ‘Obama problem.'”

    In an interview in January, Nevada GOP Senate nominee and Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle, floated the possibility of armed insurrection if “this Congress keeps going the way it is.” WashPo, Jun. 15, 2010
