Klayman: Civil Disobedience Needed Against Obama But 'Violent Revolution' Now 'Looms On The Horizon'

Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman seems to actually believe that his November 19 peaceful anti-Obama revolution will work, and is reminding his fellow activists not to take up arms… at least for now. “Short of violent revolution, which looms on the horizon, if we cannot find a way to peacefully settle the score with the political establishment, this is the only way,” Klayman writes in his most recent WorldNetDaily column.

“Peaceful civil disobedience has been successfully used in the past to change the course of history; Jesus Christ with the Romans and Jewish high priest, Mahatma Gandhi with the repressive British rule in South Africa and India, and Lech Walesa in bringing communism down in Poland, to name just a few.”

He adds that the recent Navy Yard massacre and Capitol Hill shooting are signs that “individual citizens are finding it necessary, for their own reasons, to take matters into their own hands” and that people “have had it and are now beginning to act up in ways that are frightening.”

Indeed, the domestic chaos of our so-called government, coupled with the looming Iranian nuclear threat to not just Israel, but ourselves, is reminiscent of the years leading up to Sept. 11, 2001. Then, our commander in chief, Bill Clinton, and Congress were preoccupied with a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky and subsequent impeachment proceedings, as Osama bin Laden was readying his heinous attack on the United States and the World Trade Towers. Today, the irresponsible fun and games of our political establishment, and concomitant Obama scandals like NSA-gate, IRS-gate, Benghazi-gate, Fast and Furious-gate, Navy SEAL-gate and a host of others, have created the same sclerotic conditions whereby the government grinds to a halt and is preoccupied with scandal as Rome burns.

Do not think that the American people are oblivious to all of this. Increasingly, individual citizens are finding it necessary, for their own reasons, to take matters into their own hands. The African-American woman who was shot dead in Washington, D.C., just last Thursday, and the Navy Yard massacre just a few weeks earlier are symptoms of a wave of citizen violence that is sure to increase dramatically in the near, medium and long-term future. The people of this country know that we live in dire times, and whether they are conservative, centrist or leftist in ideology, they see no leaders now or on the horizon who can bail the nation out of its nosedive. They have had it and are now beginning to act up in ways that are frightening.

But random violence will not solve the nation’s ills or frighten the political elite into behaving responsibly in the best interests of the republic. This is not the way to salvation. Rather, We the People must rise up, en masse, and make it clear to our professed leaders that they better perform, with morality, ethics and a respect for the law, or else be driven by us out of town. That is precisely what we have in mind with my call for an “Occupy Washington, ” which has been announced for Nov. 19, 2013.



Short of violent revolution, which looms on the horizon, if we cannot find a way to peacefully settle the score with the political establishment, this is the only way. Peaceful civil disobedience has been successfully used in the past to change the course of history; Jesus Christ with the Romans and Jewish high priest, Mahatma Gandhi with the repressive British rule in South Africa and India, and Lech Walesa in bringing communism down in Poland, to name just a few.

We the People must act now. Sitting back and living off the past riches of the country until the bank runs dry is a formula for disaster. Our Founding Fathers would not have sat on the deck of the Titanic as it sank, and we cannot either – that is if we are serious about maintaining and preserving our freedoms not just for ourselves but future generations.
