The right wing crazies with guns will plunge this country into civil war trope….

… is continuing to not stand up well in comparison to reality.

Thing is, violent revolution is a real feature of lefty ideology.  Its not much a feature at all conservative ideology, by definition, using just about any definition of conservative you want to pick.

    Not true. Remember Dylan Roof? His goal to to provoke a race war…..

    And the Oklahoma City bomber? McVeigh? He was attacking the government, too.

    And the nut cases who are trying to “liberate” federal lands so they can graze their cattle for free? They are also attacking the government.

    In case you are wondering, the very definition of “revolution” would be attacking the government, especially if you are attacking it because you do not consider it to be legitimate. What were those Tea Party idiots doing by claiming that Obama was born in Kenya? They were attacking the legitimacy of the President of the US. If they were doing that with violence, then that is revolutionary. Doing it with only words is not.
