Russell Pearce on Barack Obama, Jihad, Impeachment and His "Favorite Place," a Bar

Pearce's Obama-jihad-impeachment quote begins 4:09 in

For me, neo-Nazi-hugging state Senate President-elect Russell Pearce is the gift that keeps on giving. Seems like there's not a week that goes by where he doesn't say or do something totally whack, thus allowing me to pull out the verbal cat-o-nine tails and flay away at his Gila-monster hide with abandon.

So, for all his prevarications, wingnut statements, un-American pronouncements and associations with far-right extremists, I have to say, "Thanks, Russ!" When I'm carvin' up my turkey this Thanksgiving, I'll be thinking of you.

(Um, and wishing you a long life. Heh.)

Along these lines, catch what Pearce had to say to a crowd of right-wing moonhowlers recently at "David Horowitz's Restoration Weekend," for which folks ponied up $1,700 per to listen to this drivel:

"When you talk about jihad, that is exactly what Obama has against America, specifically the state of Arizona. Think about it. This is the first time in the history of the United States that a sitting President has sided with a foreign government to sue the citizens of its country. For defending our laws? For defending and protecting the citizens of the state of Arizona? It's outrageous and it's impeachable."

This deranged bilge received a standing ovation from the conservanut looney tunes in attendance, natch. Pearce's familiarity with the word jihad doesn't surprise me a-tall, as the man hails from the Taliban wing of the RepubliTea Party. Still, is Pearce one of these freaks who thinks Obama is a Muslim?

For Pearce to suggest that President Obama should be impeached because the U.S. Department of Justice is suing (successfully, mind you) Arizona over an unconstitutional state law, SB 1070, is about as full on woo as you can get. Indeed, the fact that the law was largely enjoined by District Court Judge Susan R. Bolton essentially proves that the feds were right to bring legal action against the breathing-while-brown statute.

Pearce's speech is full of inanities, but I was really intrigued by his opening remarks, describing his childhood. 

"As a young boy, I was very fortunate," he tells the assembled Kool-Aid imbibers. "Raised as a very poor young man, I ran around the streets of Mesa barefooted, selling mistletoe and newspapers on Main Street. In fact, my favorite place was the Green Frog, it's a little bar, three or four drinks, they'll buy a second time from you."

So, um, what was the devoutly Mormon Pearce doin' hanging out in a Mesa tavern?

I guess it was his "favorite place" because he could sell twice as much to the alkies. But still, Russ, as an LDS member, that's nothing for you to be proud of.

He has a bill that questions the birth of a president (birther?). Are we the US government? are we allowed to introduce federal legislation? Why is this guy wasting my money because he clearly hates.

My prediction is that Russ will be running for Governor or Senator soon, and based upon the wisdom of the citizens of this State, will be elected (really scary). People who study history would see similarities to the rise of the world's most ruthless dictators. All were embraced by people who were just seeking a leader in a time of turmoil, and in all cases the "leaders" selectively blamed a group of people for all of societies problems. Open your eyes citizens of Arizona, and don't blindly follow someone without understanding where they are leading you.

It wasn't God on the side of the American Revolutionaries that tipped the scales, you ignorant wretch - it was the French! Without their financial support, army and navy on our side, we would still be singing "God Save The King." This man, like most who support him, is willfully ignorant, preferring to believe in myth rather than fact.

Russell Pearce should do the perp-walk with his buddies the MCSO shurf, Hendy, Fox, Black, Munnell, Candy Andy, Alexander, and Aubuchon. That will be a sight to see!

Just got a release that was sent to the media and to Russell Pearce. This out-of-state Associate claims to have significant research and documentation about "The New World Order" connections of President Obama. Apparently this Associate doesn't think Pearce is coming out strongly enough against President Obama, who the Associate called "a terrorist motherfucker and an illegal alien Muslim scumbag." This guy/gal/android is not exactly a brain surgeon and would not say whether or not s/he lives in a trailer park.

"To ARIZONA STATE SENATOR RUSSELL PEARCE and THE WORLD PRESS, We have concluded that your recent "criticism" of SEDITIONIST and MUSLIM SUPREMACIST SOETORO/OBAMA was TOO WEAKand INEFFECTIVE. Try again, Senator. We are NOT IMPRESSED.. There will be no "impeachment" of SOETORO/OBAMA and his BAND OF CIA-ILLUMINATI FINANCIAL TERRORISTS who have destroyed AMERICA's economy. There WILL be INTENSE INVESTIGATIONS, ARRESTS, CRIMINAL PROSEUTIONS, and ULTIMATELY SENTENCES OF LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE for these global financial terrorists. YOU CAN'T COVER THIS UP ANY LONGER.OUR AFFILIATES WILL BE BLASTING THE DAMNING EVIDENCE ALL OVER THE WORLD ON A REGULAR BASIS. Do the right thing for America, Senator Pearce. THE WHOLE WORLD's WATCHING."

An Apache Junction Associate had a rather irrelevant comment about Tommy's reference to "monsoons," then goes on to accuse Tommy of being a plant. S/he wrote,

"....we don't have monsoons in Arizona, what's Tommy Collins talking about? All it is is heavy rain, its just that the desert folks dont know what real rainstorms are. they get overdramatic and call em monsoons. Monsoon this, Tommy!!!!!!!!

and whys Tommy Collins getting in to the BOS shit so much? He seems like some kind of "plant" for the radicals, gettin in here all the time blabbering against Joe Arpaio with that stupid, "MCSO shurf is mentally ill" and all that. he has the same agenda with Pearce also. I say hes a plant, yes, a plant.....and theyre probably paying him really well..."

OK, we have an Associate saying that Tommy Collins is a plant for the anti-Joe and anti-Pearce crowd. This Associate takes it further and claims that Tommy's a paid plant. We'll relay Tommy's comeback, if he has one. Most of our people won't get in here directly.

Pearce has been a problem for Arizona for a long time. Now we are fortunate that he has been promoted high enough in the legislature that his skewed way of thinking will get real mainstream attention. While it is bad to have him as Control Freak in Chief for AZ, this could be the beginning of the end for Pearce.

This is exactly why the LDS church needs to excommunicate the un-AmeriKKKan traitor of Freedom. He boasts of how truly proud he is to be out and drinking at a bar, then going home to beat up his wife. Direct action needs to be taken from the church. I wonder which ward he attends? So I can talk to his bishop.

So there are beheadings in Chandler? Arizona is "second in the world for kidnappings?" "The U.S. is joining with Mexico to sue Arizona? (actually, Mexico filed a brief supporting the lawsuit, it didn't "join" the suit. You'd think a Constitutional scholar like Pearce would know the difference). I have never seen so many distortions and outright lies out of the mouth of a so-called "leader" since the 1930s. He's pure ignorance and evil.

Russell Pearce is an idiot. He just adds to Arizona's image like the Nazi march and the trailer-trash lush of a Gov we have.

It doesn't trouble me so much that there is a Russell Pearce as that there are so many people who take him seriously.

You might want to add the Mexican government as a reason why the U.S. Government is still here (and why U.S. Foreign policy may change from time to time based on the interests of other foreign governments). This from Wikipedia:

Some historians have argued that France's real goal was to help break up the American Union, at the time in the midst of a civil war, by helping the southern Confederacy:

http://www.vivacincodemayo.org...

"The Mexicans had won a great victory that kept Napoleon III from supplying the confederate rebels for another year, allowing the United States to build the greatest army the world had ever seen. This grand army smashed the Confederates at Gettysburg just 14 months after the battle of Puebla, essentially ending the Civil War." The consequence of Cinco de Mayo to the United States has been thus recognized:"The defeat of the French army had consequences for America as well...the French defeat denied Napoleon III the opportunity to resupply the Confederate rebels for another year."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

Donald W. Miles adds, "At the time, there were fears in the United States that the French would use Mexico as a base to back the Confederacy, so President Lincoln and his secretary of State went out of their way to appear 'neutral' in the Mexican situation. They did not want to take on the French and the Confederates at the same time".

Ref: Cinco de Mayo: what is everybody celebrating?. The Story Behind Mexico's Battle of Puebla. By Donald W. Miles. New York: iUniverse, Press. 2006. Page xv

Dr. Miles goes on to explain that "Napoleon III had hesitated to take on the United States directly, but now the news of the Civil War changed everything". It meant that the Americans would be occupied with their conflict between North and South for some time. Upon hearing the Spaniards and the British had sailed off to grab the customs house in Veracruz to start collecting their duties, Napoleon decided he would not only send the French navy, but would also start looking for someone to place as emperor in Mexico. He would then use Mexico as a base to help the Confederates win their war against the United States. Napoleon saw this as an opportunity not to be missed.

Cinco de Mayo: what is everybody celebrating?. The Story Behind Mexico's Battle of Puebla.. By Donald W. Miles. New York: iUniverse, Press. 2006. Page 7.

Dr. Miles then concludes, "The Emperor of France ordered his generals to spend a few months taking on Mexico and then - using Mexico as a 'base' - help the Confederates win their war against the United States. What if they had succeded? The United States would never become the significant world power it is today...the Mexicans not only took their nation back, but influenced the outcome of the U.S. Civil War."

Cinco de Mayo: what is everybody celebrating?. The Story Behind Mexico's Battle of Puebla.. By Donald W. Miles. New York: iUniverse, Press. 2006. Page 279.

Historian Justo Sierra, has written in his Political Evolution of the Mexican People, that had Mexico not defeated the French in Puebla on May 5, 1862, France would have gone to the aid of the South in the U.S. Civil War and the United States' destiny could have been very different.

Hank, people try to call him on what he says, but then he just makes up something else to justify his latest lie. The lies flow from his mouth like water being pumped out of Lake Powell during monsoon.

By the way, it's been a while since I've seen a post from you. Been busy investigating Babeu and Puroll?

Maybe. But from what members of the state senate have told me, pearce seems to threaten everyone equally with exposure of one sort or another, whether the exposure is true or not. It appears he learned well (or perhaps he was actually the teacher) from the thomas and arpaio show against the Board of Supervisors. I don't hold much hope that any of the state level Republicans will have the intestinal fortitude to confront him.

In context with the rest of your comment, I do hope that your reference to Pearce as a "Constitutional scholar" was in jest. Pure ignorance and evil is a fitting description of him.

Well said. There is much to history besides the myth of "we're the greatest" that Rusty and his cretins' club believes in, but if it isn't in Cleon Skousen's great tomes, it ain't in Rusty's belief system.
