We have a new candidate for “craziest tea party candidate:” Rick Barber, running for Congress in the GOP primary in Alabama’s 2nd District, who created the following advertisement showing him stroking a Revolutionary War pistol and calling for President Obama to be impeached, and concluding with a “founding father” who snarls, “Gather your armies.”
The incitement is right in your face here, but of course Barber denies it.
UPDATE at 6/14/10 11:55:08 am:
And in a classic case of moronic convergence, Rick Barber proudly boasts at his website about winning the endorsement of anti-Muslim hateblogger Pamela Geller.
Rick Barber earns Atlas Endorsement, Interviewed by Pamela Geller at C-PAC
Friday, February 19th, 2010
WASHINGTON – Rick Barber won another big endorsement yesterday.
On Wednesday afternoon, February 18th at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC, Pamela Geller of the Atlas Shrugs blog interviewed and endorsed Rick Barber.
“Pamela was a firecracker,” says Rick Barber. “She’s intelligent, witty, conservative and tenacious. I’m proud to have her endorsement.”
Pamela Geller writes one of the most widely read conservative blogs in America. In 2008, she took third place in an online vote for the best conservative blogs in the country.
Read below about Pamela Geller according to Conservatism Today:
Pamela Geller had a fine career in the mainstream media before the attacks of 9/11 forced her to rethink her viewpoint. Now she authorsAtlas Shrugs, and (I just learned) has a local radio show here in Phoenix that I will be sure to check out. Her blog is full of high-quality, original content that you are unlikely to find elsewhere on your own. She mainly focuses on the War on Terror, and does so from her religious point of view. Still, she is a great source for information on the ongoing war, on foreign policy, and on Islamo-fascism. From time to time she focuses on other conservative concerns as well. I check in a couple times a week to see what’s new.
