Pastor Stephen Broden, a preacher at a church in South Dallas, is a nut-job Republican Teaparty candidate for Texas 30th Congressional District. Pastor Broden is advocating a violent overthrow of the government if the elections do not produce a change in leadership he approves of.
In the interview, Brad Watson, political reporter for WFAA-TV (Channel 8), asked Preacher Broden to explain his previous comment at a teaparty event, in which he described the government as “tyrannical.” Pastor Broden then replied, “We have a constitutional remedy, and the Framers say if that don’t work, revolution.”
Mr. Watson then asked if by revolution he means a violent overthrow of the government, to which the Pastor replied;
“If the government is not producing the results or has become destructive to the ends of our liberties, we have a right to get rid of that government and to get rid of it by any means necessary.”
The Preacher-man is not ruling out the violent overthrow of the government for this 2010 midterm election either. When asked by Mr. Watson if that was an option in November, the Pastor replied;
“The option is on the table. I don’t think that we should remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms.”
Pastor Broden is just another one of this year’s crazy Republican Teaparty candidate running for Congress. The usual suspects in Sharron Angle, Rand Paul, Meg Whitman, Christine O’Donnell and Joe Miller are just the ones leading the pack. But given time, the herd eventually makes their voices known. And the voice of Pastor Stephen Broden is one advising the overthrow of the United States Government, regardless of what the Law says about it.
