Nativist activist William Gheen sketched out a strategy to install Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) as Speaker of the House – and then president – in a scenario that sounds like “House of Cards” meets Kirk Cameron.
Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration, appeared Thursday on the evangelical VCY America radio network program “Crosstalk,” where he explained his theory that “big tycoons and kings and princes and emperors” were trying to destroy Christmas and other holidays through immigration.
“They’ve found a way to take over our corporations, to take over our media, (and) to take over our country by facilitating a very costly and deadly illegal alien invasion,” Gheen said, in remarks reported by Right Wing Watch.
Immigrants and non-Christians posed a “mortal danger” to the U.S. because they tended to vote Democratic, Gheen said.
“The growing anti-Christ spirit and anti-Christ movement in this country that is becoming stronger and more emboldened as the traditional conservative center-right Americans are displaced in our jobs and our politics and elections,” he warned.
President Barack Obama is trying to flood the U.S. with immigrants to outnumber Republican voters.
“Once this happens, the Socialist States of America are fait accompli, and anybody that represents the sort of moderate ground or center-right past Americans that celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving and things like that, Fourth-of-July-type Americans, will never be in charge of our own country,” Gheen said.
The anti-immigrant activist said his group is working to remove Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-KY) and soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from their leadership positions.
Then, Gheen explained, Republican lawmakers would elect Gohmert or Rep. Steve King (R-IA) as House Speaker – setting up the final phase of his plan.
Under his scenario, Congress would vote to impeach and remove both Obama and Vice President Joe Biden – which would put Gohmert next in line for the White House.
“The Speaker of the House can take over the executive branch functions, which would rein in the persecution of conservative Americans by the Internal Revenue Service, the neglect of their jobs and the persecution of Americans by the Department of Homeland Security – all of these Constitutional and republic abuses can be reined in by the Speaker of the House until the next election can restore the executive,” Gheen said.
