Riley: Operation American Spring ‘Bathed in Prayer’

Riley: Operation American Spring ‘Bathed in Prayer’ February 8, 2014

Harry Riley, the organizer of the Operation American Spring protest scheduled for May 16th, told a birther radio show host that this one will have success removing President Obama from power because it’s “bathed in prayer.” And if they don’t succeed, violence becomes inevitable.

It’s an honorable movement, it’s bathed in prayer. We’ve got a tab on our website where we’ve got a list of prayer warriors that are working every day in prayer for us. We’re bathed—it’s under God and we’re going to move up there and trust Him that it will work out because we believe it’s noble, it’s an honorable effort.

The facts I have, the documents I have say there’s 267 million armed citizens in the United States. We don’t want to get there, I’m sure you don’t because you’ve been probably in combat over in Iraq and the Middle East, that’s what we don’t want to do and that’s why we hope and pray that when we field 10-15 million people up there that that’s enough evidence for these boneheads in Washington D.C. to grasp our message, to grasp what we’re telling them that if they don’t do what we’re suggesting or what we’re demanding, then the next option is something that none of us want to see. Those of us that have been in a foxhole, we don’t want to see a violent condition erupt in our nation.

It’s quite amusing to me how they convince themselves that everyone is on their side, including God. Hey guess what? Larry Klayman’s rally was “bathed in prayer” too. About a hundred people showed up. Every one of these exercises in wingnut political theater is “bathed in prayer” and they’ve done nothing but embarrass the organizers. This one will be no different. And if it does erupt into violence, it will because of extremists like you telling people that Obama is destroying the country by making health insurance universal and treating gay people like human beings.
