You may remember this post from a few days ago, where I noted:
Yep, attack Iran, cause a global economic panic, throw in a manufactured terror attack in the US, and forget about elections in November 2008. Declare a state of emergency, suspend the democratic republic, and declare G.W. to be President for Life.
Don’t assume there is no one out there who wants to do just exactly that. Don’t assume G. W. isn’t planning to do exactly that. When and if he really does relinquish power in 2009, then you can tell me I told you so. Until then, well, I like how I look in the tinfoil hat.
Well, thanks to eiredrake, at least one group of those people have been located.
[…] I heard about this on, where else, the Thom Hartmann show. He discussed Democratic Underground’s look at Family Security Matters. This bunch of sickos (apologies to Michael Moore) advocates that Bush should be our permanent president and that there should be no more democracy. Democracy is bad. Kings are good.
Who’s on their advisory board? Reagan era remnants abound. Here are some names that Hartmann tossed out: Barbara Comstock, Laura Ingraham, Frank Gaffney, James Woolsey, and…drum roll…Dick Cheney. Oh, and by the way, it’s the same Gaffney who goes on CNN with talk of aggression against Iran. That Frank Gaffney.
Is it parody? One can only hope so. I can only say for certain that Poe’s Law applies.
ETA: Apparently, this is for real. Philip Atkinson, the author of the now removed piece advocating G.W. violently overthrow our government, is apparently for real. Read more of his thoughts here.
