A new wave of Facebook groups has suddenly sprung upon us, apparently aiming to save democracy from .... elections?
Here are but a few of these choice Facebook selections:
- Impeach Obama
- Impeach Barack Hussein Obama
- Impeach Obama - Save American Democracy
- One Billion People To Impeach Obama
An all-caps snippet from IMPEACH OBAMA!!!!!!!! 1,000,000 STRONG!!!!, explains what the fledgling Facebook movement is all about:
LETS GET THAT IDIOT OUT FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!!! WE ARE SCREWED IF HE WILL BE THE LEADER OF THIS COUNTRY!!!!!! EVERYTHING WE HAVE EVER FOUGHT FOR WILL BE FOR NOTHING. THE WAR IN IRAQ WILL BE IN VAIN, GUN RIGHTS WILL BE JACKED UP! TAXES WILL SKY ROCKET! WE WILL HAVE A WEAK MILITARY! HE WILL WANT TO DONATE EVEN MORE MONEY TO HIS ACORN TERRORIST GROUPS!!!!!! STOP HIM!!!!!! I KNOW THAT THIS GROUP WILL NOT PUT MCCAIN AND PALIN IN THE WHITE HOUSE BUT AT LEAST WE CAN PROTEST AGAINST HIM! ALSO I DON'T KNOW ABOUT ANYONE ELSE BUT I AM ALSO SICK OF BEING CALL RACIEST FOR NOT LIKING HIM JUST BECAUSE HE IS BLACK! NO ONE CALLED PEOPLE RACIEST WHEN BUSH WAS PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE WAS WHITE! NOW WHY THE HECK ARE THEY DOING IT NOW???? EVERYONE IS NOW CONSIDERED A RACIEST IF THEY DON'T LIKE OBAMA! GET OVER IT AND QUIT GETTING ALL DEFENSIVE ABOUT US BEING RACIEST!!!
(Note that this group proudly boasts 669 members, and thus has a mere 999,331 to go).
The more cynical might prefer joining the flagship Impeach Barack Obama group, which borrows its raison d'etre from William Norman Grigg's
"I'm of the view that all presidents should be simultaneously inaugurated and impeached, and that there should be a streamlined procedure to expedite their conviction and removal from office upon each president's first documented violation of his constitutional oath."
Democrat-Bashing 2.0 has finally arrived.
Who says America's conservatives aren't savvy about the internets? (!)
(This, of course, is nothing - just wait until Hillary Clinton is named Secretary of State...)
