Whenever I read about wingnuts doing or saying really weird things, they almost always seem to be people from distant locales — mainly Southern locales.
Just once, I’d like to see one of these exceedingly wacky types emerge here in the area of Applesauce World Headquarters in Northern Illinois.
Oh sure, we get our share of loonies hereabouts. But few, if any, compare with the likes of THIS GUY:
Judge Tom Head (above), a county judge in Lubbock, Texas, announced on a local television station that he would personally join the resistance against a United Nation’s takeover of American sovereignty, which he says will occur if Obama is reelected:
[Obama] is going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN. Okay, what’s going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking worst case scenario here. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. We’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations. We’re talking Lexington-Concord take up arms and get rid of the guy.
Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops — with the little blue beanies. I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County. Okay. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘you’re not coming in here’. “And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said ‘you gonna back me’ he said, ‘yeah, I’ll back you.’”
