A GOP Congressional candidate in North Carolina really wants to go to war with Mexico. In a June 26 video posted by the Daily Kos, Mark Walker was asked about the possibility of “using the military to secure our southern border.”
He told the Rockingham County Tea Party group that “If you have foreigners who are sneaking in with drug cartels, to me that is a national threat,” adding, “And if we got to go laser or blitz somebody with a couple of fighter jets for a little while to make our point, I don’t have a problem with that either. So yeah, whatever you need to do.”
“I hope you wouldn’t have any qualms about starting up a little war with Mexico,” the moderator responded.
“Well, we did it before, if we need to do it again,” Walker, who is running in North Carolina’s 6th Congressional district, said. “I don’t have a qualm about it.”
“If you are given the chance, would you vote to impeach Obama?” asked a Tea Party faithful.
Walker responded that, “If I was given a chance to impeach Obama … yes, I would.”
The moderator told the candidate that he hopes Walker is working on a plan in case President Obama decides not to leave office.
The Tea Partier responded, “Yeah, yeah. And I don’t think that’s out of the question. I think he’s gotten pretty comfortable up there spending all of those billions of dollars on vacations for he and his family. So, yeah.”
” All he’s got to do is declare a little martial law and what are you going to do with it?” the moderator fearmongered.
” It’s what Norris was talking about a little bit earlier, Sharia law. I mean, yeah, he’s—and martial law both. I’m not leaving until—I don’t want to sound too cowboyish there, but yeah, I would stand up to that. And I think we still have a country that if he tried to pull that crap, it’d get real nasty real quick,” he said.
The moderator invited Walker to “tell them your plans for court-martialing the commander-in-chief.”
“Alright,” Walker answered. “I think the question was would I sign something. I don’t have a piece of legislation right now, quite yet, to do so. But if it’s something that comes across, I’m on record of signing.”
