Texas County Judge warns “civil war, maybe” if Obama re-elected
Lubbock County Judge, Tom Head, told a local television station on Tuesday that there could be riots, unrest or a civil war “maybe” if President Obama gets re-elected.
The story began with a recently proposed property tax increase by Lubbock County Commissioner’s Court where Judge Head serves. The increase was proposed to expand local Sheriff’s Office by seven deputies and to raise prosecutors’ pay.
In an appearance on local television station, FOX 34 in Lubbock, Judge Head stated that they needed the increase in order to be prepared for a variety of contingencies, particularly if President Obama is re-elected.
“He’s going to try to hand over the sovereignty of the United States to the UN, and what is going to happen when that happens? I’m thinking the worst. Civil unrest, civil disobedience, civil war maybe. And we’re not just talking a few riots here and demonstrations, we’re talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms and get rid of the guy.
Now what’s going to happen if we do that, if the public decides to do that? He’s going to send in U.N. troops. I don’t want ‘em in Lubbock County. OK. So I’m going to stand in front of their armored personnel carrier and say ‘you’re not coming in here’.
And the sheriff, I’ve already asked him, I said ‘you gonna back me’ he said, ‘yeah, I’ll back you’. Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there. I want trained, equipped, seasoned veteran officers to back me.”
After a public hearing on the proposed tax hike on Wednesday, Judge Head elaborated on his comments to a local newspaper, the Avalanche-Journal, stating: “As emergency management director I have to think of the worst-case scenario, and I used that as an example”. He went on to state that in his opinion that worst-case scenerio, from a political and financial standpoint would be for President Obama and Senate Democrats to remain in office.
He concluded by noting that all public officials bring their value systems into office with them: “I cannot divorce my theology and my philosophy from my office. I am pro-life, I’m pro-gun rights and if you’re gonna vote for me and if you’re not for gun rights, then you probably don’t want me in office.”
