On Friday, after telling far-right radio host Rick Wiles that America is coming under God’s judgment and approaching collapse, former Georgia Republican congressman Paul Broun claimed that domestic enemies are running the country.
“We’re being destroyed for a lack of knowledge and we’re headed down a road that’s going to lead to the total destruction of our liberty and freedom and a total destruction of what our founding fathers gave us,” he said. “A total destruction of those things that I believed in very firmly when I, as a young man, raised my right hand and said when I was sworn in to the United States Marine Corps that I would defend and uphold the Constitution against enemies both foreign and domestic.”
Broun continued: “One of those domestic enemies of the Constitution is Barack Obama. Another one is Nancy Pelosi. Another one is Harry Reid. But so is Mitch McConnell. And Paul Ryan. And most of the members of the U.S. Senate as well as the U.S. House of Representatives. We’ve got to get rid of them. Well, we’ve got to make them change from their wicked ways or get rid of them and put people in place who are going to stand firm with a biblical worldview as well as a constitutional governmental view as our founding fathers meant it.”
