Western Center for ‘Journalism’ Accuses Obama of Treason

The Western Center for “Journalism,” which was founded by Worldnetdaily owner Joseph Farah and has all of the journalistic integrity of that ridiculous rag, has released a video saying that either Obama is going to serve a third term in office or be arrested and tried for treason for being a Marxist. Because both of those are totally plausible.

    They better be careful. They’ve wasted two of their three wishes and only have one left!

    What good’s a wish if the genie won’t grant it?

    Umm… wasn’t Farah one of the people who said, repeatedly and with great enthusiasm, that Bush II should throw the Constitution out the window and serve a third term? And now, with a Black Democrat holding the office of President, throwing out the Constitution and serving a third term is a bad thing?

    Gregory in Seattle – any chance of a citation for that? I’d love to have it go viral on all the right-wing echo chambers (heh heh).

    I wish he were actually a bit more of a marxist and less of a corporate capitalist lackey.

    @dingojack #4 – You made me look, and I cannot find any citation. I do remember, though, that soon after the 2004 election, there was hopeful talk in the right wing that Shrub would use 9/11 to declare a state of emergency and essentially cancel the 2008 election “for the duration.” As his poll numbers declined, fewer and fewer conservatives were hoping for a third term, but it never went away from the 20% of Americans who remained solidly behind Shrub. I figured, being the Wing Nut Daily and all, that Farah was one of those 20%.

    Gregory in Seattle – damn! Well maybe it’ll turn up (I’ll keep it in mind next time I’ve got some free time).

    It’s interesting how these folks think: holding a political ideology that is different from theirs is treasonous. Not that the accusations are true (as Marcus Ranum points out, Obama is closer to Farah than to Marxism, at least as far as economic policy goes).

    “You don’t think the same as me. Therefore, treason!”

    A third term and wasting Hardworking American Tax Dollars® in a trial? Typical Obama!

  • machintelligence

    That’s it! I am definitely having an OBAMA 16 bumper sticker printed up.

  • jnorris

    If Pres Obama throws out the Constitution to run for a third term, that would make Gov Schwarzenegger eligible for the White House! Those will be some Republican Tea Party primaries.

    Aren’t US presidents limited to two terms?

    I believe we call that a “prayer”.

    Depressing fact: the Western Center for Journalism is a tax-exempt “educational” 501(c)(3).

    Not a 501(c)(4) advocacy group, but a 501(c)(3). Which are supposed to be prohibited from engaging in political activity.

    Umm… wasn’t Farah one of the people who said, repeatedly and with great enthusiasm, that Bush II should throw the Constitution out the window and serve a third term?

    I don’t know. There’s this article from 2007 titled “Can It Get Worse Than Bush?” in which Farah claims “I have been very tough on George W. Bush over the years. I would say I have criticized him as much as I criticized Bill Clinton. I think his policies have been a disaster for this country.” In it he discusses the great danger he experienced during the Clinton years and laments for the country if Hillary gets her “third term” in 2008.

    Regarding the bit where the WJC accuses Obama of treason, I think someone should advise them that they misspelled “reason.”
