GOP Candidate Calls For Violent Rebellion

by Ben Hoffman

A Virginia Republican’s fierce call to resist President Obama’s political agenda — with bullets if necessary — ignited an outcry on the Internet yesterday, and forced her to clarify that she was not looking to incite any violence.

Appearing at a “Tea Party” rally on Wednesday to protest President Obama’s expansion of government, Catherine Crabill, a political neophyte running for the House of Delegates in the Northern Neck, quoted from a March 1775 speech by Patrick Henry and then went further, calling on Americans to resist the course Obama has set for the country.

“We have a chance to fight this battle at the ballot box before we have to resort to the bullet box,” Crabill said. “But that’s the beauty of our Second Amendment right. I am glad for all of us who enjoy the use of firearms for hunting. But make no mistake. That was not the intent of the Founding Fathers. Our Second Amendment right was to guard against tyranny.”

  1. He’s a brave and great man. America needs more like him.

  2. That quote comports nicely with those who take the most extreme positions on gun rights, the kind who say that we ought to be able to own machine guns too.
