As I read this from Raw Story, I said at first.. Please Proceed General, then it came to
me, this is really serious.   This guy and some real haters of this country are actually talking about surrounding the president, the capitol and doing harm.  
This is treason.  This is serious.  This man was talking to a Tea party group.

Yesterday I planned the funeral for a great warrior by the name of John Myers or as we knew him as the Captain.   I thought of his struggles in the last year as a veteran and
Army captain and knew he would be appaled as we are at such nonsense and putrid hatred.   I came upon the story and I thought of all the good veterans and honest men and women who have served and would be ready to fight these seditionists who have dishonored the uniform.

Here is the story.

His words are recorded on Raw Story and I reposted the entire video.

Some of his rhetoric is here and Fox of course was cheeleading.

Paul Vallely, a retired major general and senior military analyst for the conservative news channel, told the Surprise, Arizona, Tea Party Patriots during a Dec. 3 speech that other retired military personnel and veterans groups had contacted him about the possibility.

“I had a call this afternoon from Idaho, the gentleman said, ‘If I give you 250,000 Marines to go to Washington, will you lead them?’” Vallely said as the group laughed and gasped. “I said, ‘Yes, I will, I’ll surround the White House and I’ll surround the Capitol building, but it’s going to take physical presence to do things.”

Maybe this has been diared, if so I apologize but the attention of the new movement
Stand up America needs to be looked at as they are The Tea Party on steroids.
They are fundraising and coordinating.  This I will say.. One of the things that caught my attention at the very first of the video was, "
On my return from Florida
". Or words to that effect.  Florida again !!!!

Make your own judgments but I say this is some real scary stuff.  I know Rachel did a piece on the Koch's in Florida... SemDem did a piece on the corruption of this idiot givernor and it appears to be a drip drip drip coming from down here.

 Watch and throw up in your mouth but this is more than freedom of speech.  This appears to be a coup and flying under a 501 it seems....
Where is the NSA when you really need some spying?  I hope they are on this.  This is the face of the enemy and this is imo terrorism.
The video:

This is why I say attention.... If some of these people are at the DOD...tell me who is guarding the guards?  This concerns me that a Retired General is not only talking this way but getting his message to the airwaves like Faux news.   Is this about a black man as the Commander in Chief or is it so called patriots (NOT) wanting to stir the crazies and have their own Arab spring.   They actually started this stuff under Clinton. This is something we should be concerned with because this will come to a head sooner or later and what are we to do?   Will this mean
in the streets?  I don't know but it bears repeating ... Pay attention....This is not just some loudmouth with no access to vital foreign and domestic information but he does feel secure enough to run around the country talking this stuff.   We owe Benedict Arnold an apology.  I believe in freedom of speech and freedom of expresion as much as any of these right wingers but this is indeed serious and why one should never give a mic to a nutjob or what I consider domestic terrorism.  

Think about many are following this junk and between the religious zealots and the disgruntled nutjobs with guns, can we drift along as we are?   I am concerned with corrupt money flowing into the states, legislators, airwaves and these kind of people with attitude and hatred with weapons.  

SOTU?   Distress... We are in distress and mostly because these people are protected under the first amendment.  I personally think the Freedom of Speech has limits regarding taking apart a government and should be enforced.  This is our country just as much as big mouthed so called Freedom lovers.  Face it.. one person's freedom fighter is another's terrorist.  

Weep for our country....Not all veterans are like this man but too many are and many are scarred by trauma and thinking is pretty messed up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
