Andrew Breitbart Incites Violence Against Liberals, Says Military Will Back The Tea Party Up

Author: September 18, 2011 6:28 pm

Tea Party favorite Andrew Breitbart told a conservative audience in Massachusetts that conservatives outnumber liberals and have most of the guns. He also claimed that the military is ready to take action against liberals if violence ever erupted between liberals and conservatives.

“I’m under attack all the time. They call me gay, there are death threats… There are times where I’m not thinking as clearly as I should, and in those unclear moments, I always think to myself, ‘Fire the first shot.’ Bring it on. Because I know who’s on our side. They can only win a rhetorical and propaganda war. They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns… I’m not kidding. They talk a mean game, but they will not cross that line because they know what they’re dealing with.

Then he claimed that some senior military officials have personally assured him that they’ll join the right wing in a civil war.

“And I have people who come up to me in the military, major named people in the military, who grab me and they go, ‘Thank you for what you’re doing, we’ve got your back.’

Here’s the audio:

If this isn’t proof that conservatives want a civil war, I don’t know what is. This is a call for violence, pure and simple, and an investigation should be opened immediately. If Breitbart is telling the truth about military officials backing up the Tea Party, they should be investigated and tried for treason. And Breitbart should be questioned by federal authorities as well. This is a serious threat that Breitbart is making and it should concern all liberals. The right wing wants to kill liberals. They want a civil war. Look for this kind of threat to increase as the 2012 Election nears. The Party that cheers for executions and the deaths of the uninsured are fantasizing, and probably are planning, to kill the opposition to grab absolute power.

  • IMHO Breitbart is a DB… nuff said

  • This is 99% empty bluster, but let me leave the thread with a dire warning:

    if it comes to pass as this buffoon predicts, if the military dares move against the left-wing, they’ll suffer more casualties than they think they will.

  • Well, if it comes to it, I’ll do what my great great grandfather did in 1861, join the Union army and put down the rebellion.

  • It amazes me that people are so worried about terrorist attacks from outside of our country when this craziness is going on in our back yard. Wake up people! This is what the “terrorists” want, for us to backstab and fight each other, weakening us for a true attack. We need to come together and figure things out in a peaceful manner before it is too late. We REALLY are not that different. Can we direct our energies into a positive direction instead of itching for a fight and to draw the blood of our friends, neighbors, and yes, even our family members? Did we learn nothing from the Civil War? Extremism in any form is never good. Let’s all take a step back, take a big, calming breath, and look within ourselves to see what we can do to help, NOT HURT, the situation. Each of us has to tighten our belts, and give more so that we can get back on track. Each of us CAN do something to help someone else. Each of us has a time of greater need in our lives and we pray that someone will be there to help us. On the flip side, we should be willing to lend a hand when we encounter someone less fortunate than ourselves. Liberals, Conservatives, Tea Baggers, Socialists…..Forget all of those lables. Let us concentrate on personal responsibility, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, and hope for the greater good of ourselves, our families, and our country!

    • Excellent response, articulately put and truly important to listen to. This kind of incendiary, small-minded rhetoric just inflames an already percolating situation and Breitbart should be sent to his room. Without a bully pulpit anywhere nearby. I can only parrot what you’ve said so I’ll leave it there. Just wanted to show some solidarity with the viewpoint.

  • The ultra-conservative military is going to back the TP (excellent choice of acronym there; very descriptive).

    Uhhh, for one thing the military gets all the gold-plated toilet seats our tax money can buy just by sticking out their hands; they don’t need or want the TP atm. And for two and three:

    Breitbart’s a blowhard with little real clout and an imagined tin army playing in his head.

    • I am in the military and have never been in a restroom with a gold plated toilet seat. I think people like YOU are the ones that are going to ruin this country because you are out only for yourself and have no idea what is going on in the real world. If you think that military personnel get whatever they want from YOUR tax dollars, you are sadly uninformed. EVERYONE in the military pays the same taxes you pay so you might want to rethink what you say before you say it!!

  • This liberal queer athiest is armed and deadly. If/when the civil war comes then just as my Unionist ancestors in Tennesse did I will kill any traitors I can. Real freedom, Real

  • This dude is seriously mentally ill/insane.

    What a treasonous nut-job.

    And showing this video is another damned layer. Who are all the people involved in this chain of events (WE are not there with Andy B–how did this video get made and what were they after who made it, who shared it, who published it here, where is it making the rounds?) (and anyway, who is making money off our facination with this?)

    When videos of small moments get played out in public like they were public speaking events, it’s always a good idea to remember what they were in the first place.

    People of every and any stripe looking for a fight will find one.

    What am I looking for?

  • It’s not the “liberals” who should be concerned, it’s everyone in the United States that should be concerned. Furthermore, I believe an investigation would be in order.

  • You know what, Breitbart? Bring it on. You are sorely underestimating liberal will to fight and bleed you white. You are seriously overestimating your chances of wholesale military backing. This is the failing of the conservative mind, that it sees everything in absolutes.

    Start a full war with the left, and you’ll be opening the gates of your proverbial Hell.

  • John Oliver Mason

    That’s it! Breitbart, you punk, you want a rumble, you’re gonna GET one! You’ll see progressives ain’t cowards like YOU!

    • I would not count myself a progressive, John, yet I just might enlist in your ranks just so I could level a rifle at Mr. Breitbart’s skull and pull the trigger!

  • Yep, these little pieces of shit can only feel powerful when they have a gang to support them. He probably was the wimp kid who the bullies ganged up on. Get him by himself, and he’ll be pissing his pants and whimpering.

  • If anyone still has any doubt of how ruthless, intolerant, and potentially-violent our Hard Right is, then here is the evidence. Andrew Breitbart wants pitched battles between liberals and the Hard Right that the Tea Party would win because it has the guns and the liberals don’t.

    This man has shown himself as doctrinaire and bloodthirsty as any Commie.

  • The Platzner Post

    Andrew Breitbart should be arrested for treason!!!

    • All he did was express an opinion and perhaps do some boasting. We in the United States don’t arrest people for that! The United States Constitution defines treason as “…waging war against the United States or adhering to their enemies, lending them aid and comfort…” It doesn’t sound like Breitbart has done that.

  • Somebody please change this big baby’s diaper…

  • Tobin Threadgill

    Breitbart? What a tool…..LOL Paranoia reigning supreme on the right. Breitbart saying this nonsense is a publicity blessing. The fringe is fringe. As more and more Americans listen to this B.S. they WILL wake up a relaize how friggin nutty the right has become. It my not happn overnight but the right keeps pushing the boundary and the farther they push, the more they will alienate the average voter.

    Batshit crazy!

  • delusional…white conservative extremists do not make up any majority but in their own minds,the federal govt. will come down hard on these racist bigots…this plan to incite violence between Americans buy his corporate masters should be revealed for what it is….

  • Another disturbing example that the ultrarightwing are no longer bothering to hide how basically unAmerican they are.

  • I beg to differ about more of them than us. There are more registered Democrats/liberals in this country than republicans. The republicans have screwed around and gerrymandered the districts in most states to cut Democrats out that’s why these monsters keep getting elected. And there is not a real bunch of Military in this country that would follow the republicans. Maybe the officers, but they are the ones who do the fighting. And the butthole media is always saying there is hate and violence on both sides. Where are the Democrats calling for civil war and shooting people. NONE.

  • Hello Breitbart the PRESIDENT, you know Obama is Commander in Chief of the military and orders come from him. Get a clue and read the Constitution some time.

  • “Major named people in the military” will support him, to the point of violence.
    Is this cause for the FBI to come calling?
    Were there anyone by Eric Holder in charge of the DoJ, I’d expect it.

  • First — who are the “military men” who told Breitbart they have his back? I mean, did the Joint Chiefs of Staff parade over to his place one day and swear to defend him when he starts shooting Democrats and union members? Somehow I don’t believe him.

    And second: I’m a lifelong liberal Democrat and I have more guns and ammo in my two gun safes, my hip pocket, my workshop, and my truck than Breitbart can count. So — memo to Andrew B.” BRING IT ON, YOU BAD M******F*****, BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • A conservative crowd in Massachusetts? What was it, like 10 people?

  • Second Amendment Democrat

    So now we are free to shoot him – and can prove self-defense…

  • So this SOB is organizing his own Kristallnacht? How much more Brown Shirt can these nasty little spoiled thugs possibly get?

    Bring it, D-bag.

  • As I recall, Russia’s Nicholas II thought that too. Definitely rolling the dice if Repub/reactionaries go in that direction. Might work, but might not too.

  • Is there anything this disgusting pig does that would surprise or truly shock you? No need to answer; that was a rhetorical question.

  • Do you have video or audio of this?
