"Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" is a thing in Minnesota [VIDEO]
The Minnesota chapter of "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" has more than 500 Facebook members.
You'd think folks might have something better to do than stand above highways and call for something that most assuredly will not happen, but hey, it's a free country.
Buzzfeed characterizes "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" as "the new fad taking the country by storm." Here's a couple photos from events organized by local chapters of the group elsewhere in America:
The "Overpasses for America: Impeach Obama" website lists 12 reasons why the president should be impeached, including the unconstitutionality of Obamacare, his energy policies (more domestic drilling!), his tolerance for illegal immigrants entering and staying in the country, and so forth. Read about them here.
Today, the Minnesota chapter of the group is taking a day off from railing against Obama and is instead organizing 9/11-commemorating overpass events in Plymouth, Shakopee, and Eagan. But organizers aren't just commemorating the terror attacks against America in 2001. In a move Michele Bachmann would be proud of, they're also honoring the four Americans who lost their lives thanks to Obama's negligence one year ago in Benghazi, Libya.
