Really. I hope the Secret Service pays this figu di putana a visit. And real soon. This is the guy who LOST big to President Obama in the Illinois senate race. Obama got over 70% of the vote, and he wasn't even an incumbent! Alan Keyes is a loser of the first magnitude. Take a look at how he's treated his lesbian daughter.

Keyes has said he would not be coerced into "approving of that which destroys the soul" of his daughter. He contended that he must "stand for the truth [Jesus Christ] represents" even if it breaks his heart.

[BTW: Jesus says absolutely nothing about gays in the New Testament.]


Americans don't like people who incite mayhem--especially against a popular, duly elected* president.

If there is anyone more repulsive and pathetic than Alan Keyes, I haven't found him.

Alan Keyes was in Nebraska the other day where he was the featured speaker at a fundraiser for the Triple A Crisis Pregnancy Center. Outside of the event, KHAS-TV's Curt Casper caught up with the perennial presidential candidate to get his thoughts on his one-time campaign rival and current president, Barack Obama.

Needless to say, Keyes is not a fan:"Obama is a radical communist and I think it is becoming clear. That is what I told people in Illinois and now everybody realizes it is coming true. He is going to destroy this country and we are either going to stop him or the United States of America is going to cease to exist," said Keyes.

KHAS also released the video of the four-minute interview and it is really worth watching, especially when Keyes starts getting upset that the interviewer is not taking seriously his claims that Barack Obama's presidency is illegitimate, saying "it's not a laughing matter ... we're in the midst of the greatest crisis this nation has ever seen and if we don't stop laughing about it and deal with it, we're going to find ourselves in the midst of chaos, confusion, and civil war"

How exactly does Keyes propose he and his malcontented, disaffected, fellow conservatives "stop him?"

What is he suggesting?

*h/t dmarks. See comments section.

'Radical' communist.

Yipes the very worst kind.

No. Wait. Gay radical communist.

The mind reels at the ranting of Keyes, Santelli, Rush and our young friend Patrick.

Oh, Yes....Alan Keyes..

The only person I know that makes Dick Cheney look humane!

From Obama's first meeting with Bush (in "The Audacity of Hope"):

Bush then noted that he and Obama had something in common.

"We both had to debate Alan Keyes," the president said. "That guy's a piece of work, isn't he?"

dmarks said...

a technical point: "Americans don't like people who incite mayhem--especially against a popularly elected president."

We don't have popularly-elected Presidents. Not until we get rid of the Electoral College. Perhaps you mean "elected president who is popular". Obama counts as that, according to the polls.

He needs to lay off the Ann Coulter for a while.

What would I do without you, dmarks?

Yes. I know our presidents aren't "popularly" elected. I should have typed "duly elected."

thanks for the catch.

This sounds eerily similar to the rantings of the winger who shot up a liberal church in TN.

Quoted by Jobsanger; "...Liberals are a pest like termites. Millions of them Each little bite contributes to the downfall of this great nation. The only way we can rid ourselves of this evil is to kill them in the streets. Kill them where they gather. I’d like to encourage other like minded people to do what I’ve done."

These people are not just deranged, they are dangerous.

Since Obama became president, there has been an awful lot of conservatives calling for people to "stop Obama."

How do they propose to do so?

He's the elected president and the Democrats are in control of Congress.

It sound like the Republicans/conservatives are encouraging any lunatic to commit treason against the United States by "stopping" the president in any way they can.

This is an outrage. These people are the worst enemies of the US. Not the man who is cleaning up after the shitpile Bush left for him.

dmarks said...

It takes a great leap of imagination to twist "stop Obama" into a call for violence. Only in a world where anything can mean anything.

Thayer Nutz said...

Tell us how you "stop" a president who is very popular and has a majority of his party in Congress?

What exactly does Keyes mean by stop? Especially after warning that Obama is "going to destroy this country?" How would YOU stop someone you thought was destroying YOUR country? AND if Obama isn't stopped the US will cease to exist????

You are naive if you think Keyes and people like him don't mean violence. And violence of the worst kind.

"Tell us how you "stop" a president who is very popular and has a majority of his party in Congress?"

I suppose it might never occur to you that someone can stop someone using fillibusters, votes, and just speaking out. In fact, that is the usual way.

The political opposition saying they want to stop a leader is a time tested peaceful part of dissent and democratic opposition. For another example, check out this book: "Stop Bush in 2004"

"You are naive if you think Keyes and people like him don't mean violence."

You are naive if you are claiming without any sort of evidence that Keyes means to use violence. No evidence at all, other than a leap of imagination.

What is so bad about being a communist? Isn't it right that government control our energy and money? Social justice and reparations make all Americans equal. It works for Hugo Chavez. Obama is on the right track.
