Bevin threatens to overthrow government if Clinton wins


Just wow.

As a supporter of Jill Stein, I know the Stein camp is mature and levelheaded. I don't know of any Stein backers who are threatening to overthrow the government if Hillary Clinton wins the election. I've said before that our side needs to keep being the adults in the room. If Clinton wins, we can cope, and we wish no personal harm upon the Democratic nominee.

Matt Bevin, on the other hand, can't cope.

Kentucky's alt-right leader - a Donald Trump supporter - attended the Values Voter Summit, where he received an award for "Christian statesmanship." The Forehead also gave a speech threatening violent overthrow of the United States government if Clinton wins.

After ranting about the usual alt-right grievances, Bevin fell into a total meltdown. "I will tell you this: I do think it would be possible, but at what price?" he said after being asked if he thought the country would survive a Clinton presidency. "At what price? The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else? The patriots."

Who else's blood? Bevin went on to say, "It may be that of those in this room. It might be that of our children and grandchildren. I have 9 children. It breaks my heart to think that it might be their blood that is needed to redeem something, to reclaim something, that we through our apathy and our indifference have given away."

Bury your beezer in a book, Bevs. Bury it.
