A self-proclaimed “Captain” with a Montana Militia group has written in to the Cowgirl Blog to protest an item I linked to by Americans Against the TEA Party entitled “‘Christian’ Militia Leader NOW Networking Militias To Assassinate President Obama (Screenshots)”
In the article you can find screenshots from Everest Wilhelmsen, the leader of the Christian American Patriots Militia, from his Facebook page, where he writes:
“the authority to kill Obama comes from the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. He is levying war on the United States and aiding and comforting our foreign enemies….I would be very surprised if he does not leave Washington D.C. today (Nov. 19th) never to return…if he is not dead within a month.)
He urges others to sign up for his group, and Rick Lovelien’s name appears on it (screenshot).
Mr. Lovelien, or rather Captain Lovelien, does not offer an explanation for how his name got on the list without his knowledge. This “patriot” does say however that he only wants to impeach the President of the United States of America.
You can read his whole statement here:
My name is Cap. Rick Lovelien with the Montana state defense force. For the record at no time did I sign my name to a list of patriots willing to pull the hit on President Obama as per your blog. Nither[sic] dose[sic] myself or the MTDF condone any such activity. We believe he should be impeached for his action while in office. as for the operations at the Bundy Ranch, we were there to provide security for the Bundy family as well as the protesters as some of the blm agents were being abusive and threating[sic] the protesters by putting snipers on the hill overlooking the protest site.
Thank you Cap. Rick Lovelien MTDF
Note: Readers point out that the abbreviation for Captain is actually “Capt.” rather than “Cap.” so posting this here to make Mr. Lovelien aware.Tweet
