Bobby "The Exorcist" Jindal, Religious Fanatic, has taken it a step too far!
The Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal is a dyed in the wool religious nutter. A fanatical Catholic who rivals William "Bill" Donohue, the head of the medieval thinking Catholic League, for dangerous rhetoric and rabid devotion to Catholic doctrine...however they may interpret it. He is famous for having subjected his then fiancee to a Catholic exorcism to rid her of demons.
I'm used to his ravings and blather about how gays are dragging this country down; how Obama is destroying the country, and the usual litany of ignorance one has grown to expect from the far right religiously afflicted. But, this time he may have crossed the line.
Evidently the favorite bleating of the religious right that Obama is waging a "War Against Christianity" (all 76% of it's religious majority in this nation) has pushed Governor Jindal over the edge. So much so that it appears Governor Jindal has called for a "hostile takeover" of the Federal Government.
Read the full story here:
Now there's two ways to deal with this. One is to ignore it, and trust it is blather that will fade into obscurity, much like I expect Bobby to. The other is to realize that when an elected official...of any party or persuasion, incites armed rebellion, AKA a "Hostile Takeover" against a duly elected administration / the Federal Government, that its time to get your activism in gear. I for one will not stand idly by and let this kind of rhetoric or threat be thrown about without some consequence. Religious fanaticism doesn't get a pass on sedition.
The following letter was sent to both of my NH senators. Shaheen being the more reasoned (read : Dem.) of the two. I have also used the same verbiage in an advisory to the FBI.
Dear Senator Shaheen,
I came across this article today. I find it disturbing.
If what is reported is true, I interpret it to mean the Governor of Louisiana is inciting armed rebellion against the Federal Government. While I'm just a layman in these matters, I believe it is tantamount to sedition in that it "... is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order." including incitement against lawful authority.
I believe this warrants investigation by your office and/or the FBI / Homeland Security.
I urgently request your followup and reply.
I urge all of my readers to write to their senators expressing your concern and demanding a response; and to forward this information to your freethinking friends, and all defenders of reason and our secular democracy.
