I think Chuck Schumer just called for civil war

I just finished some yard work and came inside to hear Senator Chuck Schumer’s Inauguration Day speech. He mentioned the need to fight enemies foreign and — with emphasis — domestic. He compared this time to the Civil War. Then he read from Major Sullivan Ballou’s letter to his wife (just before he died at Bull Run).

And asked for all Americans to read the full letter and show Ballou’s courage.

Maybe it’s just me, but that sounded like subtext between awfully wide lines printed in 72pt. Arial Bold.

    You’re in the South now. That’s the First battle of Manassas. That asshole Schumer has been doing his best to set up conditions for a civil war his entire political career.

      But my readers are from all over. Sad fact is that more people will recognize “Bull Run.” And yeah, the only thing that surprised with Schumer is that he seems to think the time is finally here.

      Perhaps he should talk to his ATF and NICS buds about who is better armed.

      Nah. It ain’t as if he’s going to put his precious ass on the lines.

        There are folks in Zelman Partisans who know his home addresses. Just saying.

    And Schumer is one of the anti-gun folks who for years have been calling us gunfolk stupid because even with our guns we obviously wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of ever standing against the military.

    And now, by the way, the Commander in Chief is one of us.

    (Or at least says he is.)

    As much as Schumer decries the gun, he is fascinated and drawn to their power (in his hands, of course) to remake the world in his image. You, of course, are not him, so you are not to be trusted.

    That does not, unfortunately, surprise me.

    He doesn’t realize the outcome would not be in his favour, even if he managed to live to see the end
