The absurd rhetoric from the religious right about Obama continues, as Robert Knight, formerly one of the men who ran the group Concerned Women for America and now a “senior fellow” at the American Civil Rights Union (one of the numerous wingnut legal groups that thinks it’s incredibly clever to name themselves in a similar manner to the ACLU), says that if Obama is reelected it might destroy the republic.
Knight believes Obama would really be emboldened if he is elected to a second term.
“The sheer unconcern for Congress’ constitutional powers if he gets re-elected will be magnified several times, which is frightening,” the conservative offers. “We’re right on the edge of losing our constitutional republic, and I’m wondering if a president who doesn’t respect the Constitution and is emboldened by a re-election might just push us over that edge.”
This refrain that America will be destroyed if Obama is reelected is spoken so often that it has almost become a mantra for the wingnut set.
