Andrew Breitbart calls for violence against liberals, claiming that the military will back Tea Partiers like himself if they manage to incite an honest-to-goodness shooting war, not just an information war:
“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.’
And yet, during the Bush era, disagreeing with the President was an act of treason. Calling for violence is, I expect, fine! Just fine!
