Lubbock County Judge Tom Head told CNN affiliate KJTV that if Obama is re-elected, he will “try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations.” Head then said if this happens, “We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war.”
Head said Wednesday at a county commissioner meeting his comments were “worst case scenario,” and he didn’t think those things were actually going to happen.
County Commissioner Gilbert Flores said he was ashamed of what the county was going through and ashamed of Head’s comments.
“There are some words that were not taken out of context, he meant exactly what he meant,” Flores said.
Attorney Rod Hobson said it was sad that Head is the elected county judge and is in charge of a multi-million dollar budget. Hobson said, “When I saw the story I thought, once again, Lubbock is going to be the laughingstock of the entire nation.” Hobson said he put UN flags outside of his office after he heard about the judge’s comments.
Head said, as the emergency management coordinator, he has to “think about the very worst thing that can happen and prepare for that and hope and pray for the best.” He told radio host Jeff Klotzman the very worst thing that could happen in this political and financial climate is for Obama to get back into the White House. Head also said:
“Regardless of whether the Republicans take over the Senate, which I hope they do, he is going to make the United States Congress and he’s going to make the Constitution irrelevant. He’s got his czars in place that don’t answer to anybody.”
