Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch, a conservative political advocacy group, attacked President Obama on Sunday for the shutdown and called on him to resign, The Huffington Post reported.
During his speech at a Tea Party demonstration that was held to protest against the memorial closures, he said Obama «is not a president of ‘we the people.'»
«I call upon all of you to wage a second American nonviolent revolution, to use civil disobedience, and to demand that this president leave town,» Klayman said.
The activist was among a number of American veterans who were angry over the memorial closures that followed the shutdown earlier this month.
The protesters pushed through the barriers at war memorials and carried the barricades back to the White House.
One protester said Obama is not the president of «the» people but «his» people. Multiple signs read «Impeach Obama.»
The partial government shutdown entered its 14th day on Monday and a potential default on the country’s debt is arriving with the October 17 deadline.
The Obama administration says it will be unable to pay all of its bills if Congress does not raise the $16.7 trillion debt ceiling in the next three days.
