How long before something ‘mysterious’ happens to this former Republican Congressman? Obama is going to be livid when he hears about this.
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (TheBlaze) — The Republican Party is on the cusp of a revolution, and the possibility of violence cannot be ruled out, according to former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh.
“I think that we’ve begun a third American revolution,” Walsh told TheBlaze in an exclusive interview over the weekend. “I think people who recoil against both parties and believe in freedom are finally rising up. They’re angry — I mean, look at [Republican frontrunner Donald] Trump — and they want to do something about it. I think we’re at the beginning of this, and I think you’re going to see it play out in the Republican Party because there could be a split in the Republican Party.”
According to Walsh, the first step for “revolutionaries” — or, conservatives, Tea Partiers and grassroots activists — is to “clean out the Republican Party.” If that does not work, he said, a new political party or movement could be on the horizon.
“It’s hard to say, ‘don’t’ be afraid of it,’ because we don’t know what’s going to happen,” Walsh, 53, said. “Remember, revolution is a scary term. It implies violence; it implies open rebellion. People shouldn’t be afraid because initially we’re going to use the political system in this revolt to try to fight back.”
“It’s not going to get violent at first, but look, the two prior revolutions we had got violent — the American Revolution and the Civil War,” the one-term congressman continued. “Our founders believed that it may take violence to take back our country every now and then.”
