Ron Lowe: Liberty must be kept by ‘force’?
A Washington state Republican legislator told an audience at a “God and Country” event to prepare for a civil war. A recording of the event shows that Rep. Matt Shea said that America is no longer a beacon of Christianity because of compromise, and that liberty must be kept by “force.” Another speaker said Christians should buy an AR-15 and plenty of ammunition.
This is how crazy Republican white religious extremists have become, and there are a lot of them. These angry white Republicans have everything; house, family, job, money, and they’re talking revolution. I hope President Trump has contingent plans to call out the U.S. military to quell these Republican radicals if they start their revolution against America.
