Preparing for the civil war

In case you haven’t had your daily dose of insanity:

Lubbock County Judge Tom Head and Commissioner Mark Heinrich went into great detail Monday night on FOX 34 News @ Nine about why it is necessary to raise the tax rate by 1.7 cents the next fiscal year. […]Judge Head said he and the county must be prepared for many contingencies, one that he particularly fears, is if President Obama is reelected.

“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN, and what is going to happen when that happens?,” Head asked.

“I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.[“]


I was going to go to the movies to clear my head after this, but every multiplex in Louisville is playing “Obama’s America 2016” a right-wing screed that says that since the president’s Muslim Kenyan father was a socialist, the logical conclusion is that Obama is going to turn the country into a socialist backwater ruled by Sharia law.

This is what passes for civil discourse on the Amercan right. But even more upsetting, now I’m thinking they really do want a civil war.
