Former Congressman Allen West just made a direct threat on President Obama’s life, in a what appears to be an open letter to the President. The letter is in regard to President Obama’s executive order, that will strengthen the background check system for buying a firearm.
ISIS routinely threatens America and our president, and Republicans freak out over it. Now, Allen West directly threatened to not allow the President to finish his second term unless he meets West’s demands. Where is the Republican outrage?
West invokes imagery of the American Revolution, and uses the phrase “Molon Labe” which means “come and try to take our guns”. The implication of this phrase is that anyone who tries will be killed. We just had a mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic that was the direct result of right-wing propaganda trash like this. If an attempt is made to harm the President or other governmental officials, West should be held directly responsible.
Writing on Red Flag News, West described how President Obama’s executive order strengthening the background check process for buying firearms is, in his amateur opinion, unconstitutional and that he would not allow President Obama to get away with it. West is being willfully ignorant by associating expanding background checks with the term “gun grab.” 90% of America fully supports a stronger background check system for buying firearms. A background check system that is more comprehensive seizes nobody’s guns, but it does prevent terrible people from buying them a lot of the time. Why is West so afraid to take a background check?
Read Allen West’s treasonous statement below:
President Barack Hussein Obama, on behalf of true Americans, I want to inform you that we will not follow your unconstitutional executive order.
We the American people have no other recourse than to resort to civil disobedience. We have no representatives in Washington DC who will stand and the Supreme Court has failed us as well.
You have embraced violent protest movements in America such as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter. We are not lowering ourselves to that despicable progressive socialist “rules for radicals” model.
We, the people, are just telling you “No.” We will now be sending you emails and social media posts as well as calling OUR White House to say one word, “No.”
And if you persist and take the same course of action as Xerxes, we will give you a two-word response, Molon Labe.
This is your final year as president of the United States so let us come to an agreement: you leave us alone and we, the American people, will let you stay and finish your term.
Heed these words of counsel. Our American blood is descended from men and women who rejected tyranny — so shall we honor their memory.
If you do not wish to honor your oath to the Constitution and protect us, we shall protect ourselves. And NEVER forget the oath we American Warriors take is to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign, and domestic.
I beseech you, do not come down on the wrong side of American history. Do not come out into the East Room and issue these executive orders, which you know very well are not constitutional. America is a Constitutional Republic, not a constitutional monarchy, and we are not ruled by edict.
We have a system of checks and balances, separation of powers, and coequal branches of government. If you cannot govern this Nation according to its principles and established laws, then tell us so, and kindly vacate the office.
Nothing you are proposing by this executive action has any relevance to recent incidents. You have released countless criminals and now you wish to restrict law-abiding citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms.
Go to your hometown in Chicago, take a walk this evening in Washington DC, or drive up to Baltimore if you want to rectify “gun violence.”
But as a proud gun owner, husband, dad of two daughters, the third of four generations of American combat veterans, a former Member of the US Congress, and an American, I am telling you simply, “Stand down.”
