Morning Star Ministries calls for military takeover

Remember during the Bush years when merely criticizing a government policy, like invading Iraq or the Katrina responses, was high treason? Rick Joyner apparently does not, nor is he worried his cult will glom onto it.

The funny thing is, much of what he says is true in a sense: as in one small hyper-conservative faction in the GOP, Teaparty Republicans, are behaving unconstitutionally and screwing up the nation mightily. But in Joyner’s addled mind, it’s the Teaparty minority that needs to be installed by military coup. Maybe it has something to do with three million people visiting a certain site … What would Jesus do?

2.8 million people have visited today and we’ve received 81k calls! We’re excited so many people want to #GetCovered @AccessHealthCT

    So to save democracy he wants to use military force to remove a leader that has been elected democratically. He doesn’t put much thought into his rants does it?

  2. Al Dente says

    The problem with military dictatorships is that most generals don’t understand politics. They’re used to a system where they say “shit” and their underlings pull down their pants and squat. Civilians don’t operate that say. It doesn’t take long for military dictatorships to become really repressive. Then outspoken people like Joyner get visited by the secret police. I don’t think he’d like that.

    Given that there is no provision within the constitution for a military takeover I assume that this is one of those ‘burn the village to save the village’ corners right-wing military and fundamentalist minds are so prone to painting themselves into.

    But who’s in charge of the US military – isn’t Obama commander in Chief?
