Larry Klayman, the founder of the Clinton-hounding conservative group Judicial Watch, has spent the last several years calling for a mass uprising or a coup to depose President Obama and prevent Hillary Clinton from winning the presidential election. Unsurprisingly, Klayman returned to this theme yesterday in response to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that his agency would not recommend that prosecutors press charges against Hillary Clinton for misuse of email at the State Department.
“This thing has been rigged from the start, Donald Trump is absolutely right, I said it long before Donald Trump,” Klayman told Newsmax’s J.D. Hayworth. “Our legal system is corrupt to the core and I think, you know, we just celebrated our Independence Day. We’re back to 1776. I advocate civil disobedience a la Martin Luther King. It’s going to take another revolution to bring this country back.”
“What I’m saying is that if we want justice, we the American people are going to have to rise up,” he said. “It’s only one day after July 4 and our forefathers rose up against King George III. Frankly, he was a better ruler than either Hillary Clinton would be or Barack Obama or Bill Clinton or, for that matter, some of the Republicans. And we’re going to have to take our country back and it’s going to have to be done in a peaceful way with civil disobedience. We can no longer rely on the courts.”
He added that his nonviolent, 1776-style revolution would require “extreme, nonviolent measures.”
“I don’t advocate violence, I never have,” he said, “but it worked for Martin Luther King, it worked for Lech Walesa in Poland, it worked for Mahatma Gandhi in India, and in South Africa.”
