* Protest? Civil disobedience? Dude, all you’re gonna do is sit on your can while you flap your gums on the radio and type goofy stuff on Twitter in order to bolster your talk show ratings. C’mon…
Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he plans to take up arms if Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump loses on Election Day.
“On November 8th, I’m voting for Trump,” Walsh tweeted. “On November 9th, if Trump loses, I’m grabbing my musket,” asking his nearly 80,000 Twitter followers, “You in?” […]
Walsh, who hosts a syndicated radio show on AM-560, later told NBC5 that the tweet was tongue-in-cheek.
“We’re talking about a musket,” Walsh said. “I could’ve said grab your slingshot and let’s go. Metaphorically, I meant grab your muskets, if Trump loses, man, we’re going to do what we have to do. We’re going to protest and boycott and practice civil disobedience. We may start a third party.”
“We’re going to do a lot of things to get our country back, that’s what I meant,” Walsh added.
* Most of the replies to his tweet were not at all supportive. And some were pretty funny, particularly this one…
But I still say that if he has a FOID card, he should forfeit it.
