Approximately 100 conservative activists gathered in front of the White House on Tuesday for a kickoff of what organizers call "the second American revolution."
The event could easily have been mistaken for a tea party rally, with American and Gadsden flags, a smattering of biker jackets and a few lawn chairs.
Freedom Watch founder Larry Klayman, who emceed the event, told attendees if President Barack Obama does not resign by Nov. 29, conservative activists will meet in Philadelphia to elect a shadow government.
"We've got God on our side," Klayman said. "He's going to make sure we win this revolution."
The so-called revolution will be nonviolent, he said.
Klayman is suing the Obama administration in a bid to end the National Security Agency's phone and Internet surveillance programs. He said at the rally that Obama "has broken into 300 million homes" with the programs.
"In the end [Obama] will feel the force of the American people, just like King George did," he said to applause.
The forthcoming convention in Philadelphia, Klayman said, will be organized within the next several weeks. A so-called "government in waiting" will be elected there, including a president, representatives and a cabinet, he said.
Nearly all speakers invoked their Christian faith to condemn Obama.
Bishop Dan Johnson of the Heart of Fire Church in Louisville, Ky., prayed with ralliers, asking God to "cause [elected officials] to get on their knees, not to Allah, but to God almighty." In his prayer, Johnson denounced homosexuality, permissive parenting, pornography and welfare.
Former Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., told the crowd Obama should be impeached. Barr spearheaded the successful impeachment campaign against President Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
"We have a scoundrel living in that building," Barr said, pointing at the White House, "and need to do something about it."
Barr was the Libertarian Party's 2008 presidential candidate and is currently running for a U.S. House seat.
Other speakers included WND editor Joseph Farah, 2004 Constitution Party presidential candidate Michael Peroutka and retired U.S. Navy Adm. James Lyons. Belinda Bee, a principal organizer of the Sept. 11, 2013, motorcycle convoy into Washington, D.C., also attended.
A George Washington impersonator read from the stage a revised Declaration of Independence composed by organizers. "Mister Obama and his collaborators," the man declared, should be personally responsible for the national debt.
The new declaration says Obama must "immediately step down from his usurped office and seek refuge in a nation more of his liking." Grievances against Obama include gun-control proposals, immigration reform agitation, a departure from "Biblical morality," alleged help for al-Qaida associates in the Middle East, an allegedly fabricated birth certificate and executive actions that loop around Congress.
Activists seek to dissolve the United States until Obama is forced from office.
"He's kind of like a skunk," one attendee joked. "He's half white, half black, and everything he does stinks."
