GOP Newsletter Calls for “Armed Revolution” If Obama Re-elected

A monthly newsletter published by the Greene County Republican Committee in Virginia is under fire for its inclusion of a column calling for an “armed revolution” if President Barack Obama is elected to a second term as POTUS.

“We shall not have any coarse [sic] but armed revolution should we fail with the power of the vote in November,” Editor Ponch McPhee wrote. “This Republic cannot survive for 4 more years underneath this political socialist ideologue.”
