Burning an effigy is so 1776, right? Right. As the American colonists burned an effigy of King George III, so Americans of the 21st century will burn an effigy of Barack Obama this coming Saturday and just so no one can play the race card, they will be burning an effigy of Bill Clinton as well and that particular fire will be started by Miami's "Michael the Black Man," who has called for "good people Latin, Black and White to unite."
So where did such a thing come from? Well it isn't new. Recently burning an effigy of George W. Bush by a crowd of hundreds occurred in Montreal, Canada.
Pakistani's have burned Barack Obama in effigy. Afghans have burned an effigy of Obama. Now Americans are set to do the same in protest to Obama's attacks upon the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the American people.
But this is all about reliving the past, while looking to the future. For it was our forefathers who did the same to an effigy of King George iii for far less than what today's politicians are doing to the American people.
John Attarian, writes an excellent analysis of the situation between today and the time of the Revolutionary War and I think presents a fair and accurate depiction of King George III, which is well worth your time to read. He writes:
More to the point, by every measure, our government is more tyrannical towards Americans than King George’s at its worst.
Granted, the British did some harsh stuff. They send regiments to Boston, closed the port, and quartered soldiers in colonists’ homes. But only after repeated attempts to conciliate the colonies had gotten them nowhere and had prompted only more defiance. There is no comparison, absolutely none, between the final British crackdown and what’s happening in "free" America.
The Bostonians asked for what they got. We didn’t.
Trampling the rights it supposedly exists to protect (or so the Declaration of Independence would have you believe), our government routinely commits tyrannies that Good King George never dreamed of.
On January 19, 2013 there will be a burning of Barack Hussein Obama in effigy. Organizers have said it will be an "open carry," peaceful demonstration. Thought an effigy will be burned, the event is not to promote violence but to express the grievances of the people against their government.
It will take place at Dove World Outreach in Gainesville, Florida. According to the site promoting the event:
We will burn an effigy of Barack Hussein Obama on a bonfire of political protest at 2 pm EDT, Saturday January 19th, 2013. He lied his way back into the White House. But he does not get a free pass just because he is black.
We protest in disgust, in civil disobedience, in anger, in hope, in prayer, that the Untied States of America will wake up. We protest in proclamation: I did not vote for him. He must be impeached, removed, because he is a liar, a deceiver, a murderer, he is anti-American, anti-Christ.
America is in dire straights. We are facing economic collapse. We murder, through abortion, thousands of children a day. We promote the perverted LGBT agenda. We appease and support the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islam.
Let us pray, but let us not only pray. As the Bible says, faith without works is dead. Let is also do something. Let us stand up, let us protest. It is our time, it is our voice, let us save America.
Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp will be joined by Jim host of Freedom Fighter Radio and Michael the Black Man. Michael also plans to burn an effigy of Bill Clinton.
As Attarian demonstrated in his article, pointing even to presidents of the past, this is not a Democrat or Republican issue, but a liberty issue.
Special guests at the Saturday event will probably include members of the Secret Service. There has not been word if there will be prostitutes waiting for them at their hotel or not. The event will also be live streamed at FreedomFighterRadio.net.
