You Say You Want a Revolution?


In one of those moments that caused me to emit that Tim Allen grunting noise, Republican congressional candidate Reverend Stephen Broden said the following in a TV interview yesterday.

We have a constitutional remedy. And the Framers say if that don’t work, revolution.

The interviewer, Brad Watson, political reporter for WFAA-TV, asked Broden for further clarification, to which he responded, “If the government is not producing the results or has become destructive to the ends of our liberties, we have a right to get rid of that government and to get rid of it by any means necessary. He added further clarification, saying “The option is on the table. I don’t think that we should remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms. However, it is not the first option.”

Broden has been denounced by the Dallas County Republican Party and other Republicans.

Pardon the pun, but what has Broden been smoking? I’ve seen interviews with him before and he’s never said anything approaching this level of nuttiness. Of course, since he’s spoken at Tea Party events in the past, it’s likely inevitable that this will be linked to those violent and racist hatemongers (please note extreme sarcasm here…).

Also…”If that don’t work”? Come on, dude. Advocating violence and poor grammar do not go hand in hand.
