Bevin Calls for Bloodshed If Trump Loses

Really, motherfucker? Thanks for revealing your true authoritarian colors.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.  Not to mention illegal, unconstitutional, un-democratic and un-American.

But it's the way of the tyrant.

In December 2000, when it was crystal clear to everyone that Al Gore had won the election - popular vote AND electoral college - and that the repug Supreme Court had committed treason by unconstitutionally appointing the election loser to the presidency, Democratic voters did not respond with violence.

Smirky/Darth had perpetrated an actual coup, one that genuinely merited a rebellious response, but Democrats shed no blood, because we cherish the Constitution and the rule of law above all.

Bevin just made clear that he and the other Trumpists shit on the Constitution. They shit on the rule of law. They shit on our Democratic republic.

They demand a tyrant, and to get him they will destroy everything we have built over 400 years.

I'm not sure how I missed this. At the Family Research Council Action convention last week, where Trump spoke, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin (R) both lamented and called for revolution and bloodshed to "redeem" what will be lost if Hillary is victorious.

Seems to me this is both incitement to riot and advocating the forceful overthrow of the United States government, both felonies.

Why isn't Bevin locked up?

Yours crankily,
The New York Crank

Excellent question, Crank. I can't decide if he really thought no one outside the reich-wing bubble would notice what he said, or if he thinks that Trump has the press so cowed he can get away with inciting treason.

We'll see if the dem legislators are serious about impeachment when they convene in January.

Assuming they don't lose the state house in November, which they are more than capable of doing.
