58. Then they need to give up the label Conservative

RepubliCONS who want an armed revolution and stage a coup are not conservative. That is way out there and bizarre, very different from the word conservative.

I think Hitler was the right wing's answer to a socialist or communist Germany (Russia was a lot closer to Germany then the US). I think the right wing paid him, funded his political machine to prevent socialism and communism from taking hold in Germany. The capitalist just couldn't live with a socialist Germany. That's why people like Prescott Bush paid for Hitler's rise to power, he was forced by FDR to stop funneling money to Hitler after the US declared war on Germany. No loyalty or patriotism in the bush clan. They just want capitalism to live forever even when it is clearly dysfunctional and broken.

So if the right wing were willing to hire a Hitler to be the tyrannical mass murdering dictator of Germany to save capitalism, they certainly don't have a problems with an armed revolution in the US. But they are NOT Conservative.

10. Nothing new

During the two times since Reagan we have had a Democratic Administration (Clinton 1993-2001; Obama 2009-2015) this kind of bullshit comes out of the woodwork, usually clad in Army-Navy store fatigues, camouflage paint and packing AR-15's.

I firmly believe that most of the Republican party of today believes that the White House is, or "should," be THEIRS by some sort of divine right ever since Ronald Reagan.

Two terms of Reagan was supposed to transition into two terms of Bush I, then into two terms of Quayle (thank God that didn't happen...I originally come from northern Indiana and remember him as a dim-bulb Senator), etc., with the Democratic party forever marginalised as a "token opposition."

When the voters decided otherwise in 1992...THIS JUST CANNOT HAPPEN!

And what did we get from that? TIM McVEIGH.

So they got their two terms of hard-right authoritarian Bush/Cheney and they're pissed off that they didn't again get their convenient little segue into Palin/McCain (yes, I got the order right!), so now it's back to calling themselves "defenders of liberty." Yet they don't seem to have a problem with the horrific Patriot Act.

I see this kind of B.S. elsewhere on the Net frequently...usually accompanied by taking Jefferson's quote about "the tree of liberty being watered with the blood of tyrants" way out of context. If Obama were any kind of tyrant they wouldn't be free to bitch, moan, piss and whine about it!

It would be interesting to see a face-to-face between these self-styled "freedom fighters" and trained National Guard troops, State Police Special Tactics, etc.

Of course, when I put this to them they say "the Guard will switch sides and join US." They know little of a sworn oath by the military and/or the Uniform Code of Military Justice, especially Art. 94, "Mutiny And Sedition."

http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/ucmj/blart-94.htm

And what would they want from such a "revolution?" Why...one-party far-right Republican rule in perpetuity, of course!

From where I stand, that is called fascism.

18. It's been their pattern

when a Democrat is elected, rile up the extremists to get the rest of the country afraid - then, the Republicans in Congress seem "moderate" by comparison, when they've been moving further & further right since Reagan.

This also happened in the 60s with JFK and LBJ - you saw the rise of the John Birch Society. In the 90s under Clinton, it was the militia groups and the like (Waco, McVeigh, etc)... now, you have the son of the John Birch Society in the Tea Party.

Yet they don't seem to have a problem with the horrific Patriot Act.


Having spent more than my fair share of time on HuffPost - where more and more paid Rightwing-trolls appear - they HATE the Patriot Act now. Sure, they didn't when Duhbya Fuhrer was in power, but they hate it now that Black man is president.

And yes, since fascism is right-wing ideology, it's exactly what they crave for in 'Murica - just as long as one of their own is the dictator {he later softened it to "decider", though}.

The party that believes that guns and fetuses have more rights than people favors an armed revolution to protect our civil liberties from being eroded by the very people they elect to ensure that guns and fetuses have more rights than people. Irony is lost here.

We can almost be assured of 8 years of Hillary + 8 more from another Dem + 3 more years of Obama...by then they'll be itching start a Revolution...if not before.

31. This does not surprise me. During the Bush administration, I watched the rapid increase in

disregard for justice and for economic justice in particular.

The Occupy Movement was the peaceful "revolt" if you will of the left. Usually, the left in our country is very peaceful. Has been that way since the revolution of 1776.

But the right. The Southern right-wing seceded from the Union. They have been behind most of the violent rebellions in the country with the exception of the tiny, fringe movements of the left after the 1960s.

Unions have been involved in violent episodes in the past, but the violence was often perpetrated by company or police thugs.

In the past, when enough middle class people get frustrated with the social and economic injustice, something goes haywire and there can be violence. France and England have gone through this at various times as have other European countries as well as countries we think of as third world.

The essential problem is insuring enough social and economic justice or, at the very least, a sense of social and economic justice in the middle class.

That banks have paid no price for their irresponsible lending and derivatives policies while so many middle class people have lost their jobs, their homes, their businesses and the dreams of their children is a very serious matter, far more serious than our deficit problems.


Disparity in wealth. Having rich and poor is bad, but when the middle class, the creative class, is falling into poverty, a country is in decline.

I think many of them know what is really wrong with the United States, but taking on the big bosses and greedhead bankers sounds far too hard. Instead they look around for someone weaker and more powerless than themselves to blame for their disappointments and hard knocks. They are encouraged in this by the bosses' and bankers' shills on radio and TV. Many of them are also so stupid they imagine using a gun to "solve the problem" is the easiest and most effective thing they can do. The fact we have a Black man as our President clinches the deal, and we get talk of armed rebellion, "To take our country back by force!"

They are deluded dimwits, working against their own best interests. Maybe their children will catch on and direct their ire against those who are truly oppressing middle and working class Americans. Maybe??

46. This Actually Understates the GOP's Problem

Because only 31% disagreed with the statement that "armed revolution" might be necessary in the future. That means nearly 70% were at least somewhat open to the notion. That "not sure" total of 20% would be alarming in its own right but when piggybacked with the 44% saying yes then we have a major, major problem.

Keep in mind that the only age group that voted for Romney was the 65 and older so we are talking about old people talking about taking up arms to fight this country -- apparently using their Social Security checks to buy their weapons. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

47. The 1% recognize that they will only be able to push us so far and we will revolt.

I see no other end in sight. We have been getting robbed for 40 years and seems to be accelerating, not abating. No FDR has stepped forward. So if there is going to be an "armed revolt" the 1% would like to pit part of the 99% against the other part. The blue against the red.

So I dont think the Republicans are wrong on this, they just are misguided as to the cause of their problems. It is easy to hate them because they arent smart enough to recognize the real enemy, but we need to help them see the light. We have a common enemy that may not wish us dead but do wish our wealth.

If someone sees a way out without revolution, please explain it to me.

For the record, I dont think an armed revolution will be successful, I do think it is inevitable.

Isnt it time for another bank bailout? It worked so well the last time.

50. Revolution? I'm for it. Let's let 'em go. Now.

Let's let these bags of fuckweed have their own country. We'll negotiate a retreat to the West and Northeast, offering them the central and Southern US.

We'll split up into 2 huge federal districts where each can interpret the constitution any way they like.

They can be this land-raping, income-divided, gun-worshiping, under-educated, prison-industrial-complex, abortion-criminalizing Jesus-land.

We'll be a more enlightened, community-oriented, healthy, smart, clean, secular and compassionate society.

I'm absolutely sick of this new hyper-conservative strain and what it's doing to the country. I'm feeling a little depressed myself about our prospects of staying "united".

Looking at the modus operendi of the R-party in this day and age (win at all costs or destroy America trying), I can't see how the American ideal can continue.

53. Unless they did this poll in 2001 in reference to the Patriot Act, then frankly they can bog off.

If you're not going to invoke the spectre of armed insurrection at the pointless invasion of Iraq, torture, indefinite detention, warrantless wiretapping, FBI infiltration of peace organisations, or deployment of armed mercenaries for crowd control during Katrina then you can piss of with your threats about "restoring liberties" through lowering taxes and buying assault rifles.

54. Here is my take

What is threatening their liberties:
-a black president
-liberals
-taxes
-obamacare
-contraception and abortion
-gun control

And how are they similar to jihadists:
-radical ideology
-willing to kill any other ideology
-obsession with weapons
-intolerance of other ideologies

Did I miss a few?
-Airplane

55. Bring it, fucktards

Waddle onto the field of battle against the professional military of the USA.

Ol' Roscoe and Cooter might start having second thoughts after a JDAM gets dropped on their double-wide.

60. Didn't they try this back in the 1860's?

If they want to get their asses handed to them, have at it Hos.

64. K&R Excellent slam! Using the tinfoil for background was a work of genius

I missed it until I saw a smaller version here: http://www.politicususa.com/find-koch-dollars-root-calls-armed-revolution-obama.html

I'm always amazed by photometry and optical illusions.
