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.
