Former GOP spokesman raises specter of armed rebellion

The most pathetic of the creatures to be found clinging to the underbelly of the American political right wing are those obsessed with fantasies of taking up arms against the liberal state.

One such specimen made himself CONSPICUOUS yesterday up in Michigan:

Given our political climate and the relentless Republican fear-mongering, it’s unsurprising the reaction to SCOTUS having upheld Obamacare is mixed. Nobody would expect a single Republican to cheer the decision. However, Atty. Matthew Davis is dancing on the knife edge of sedition with this response:

The former spokesman for the Michigan Republican Party sent out an email that questioned whether armed rebellion was justified over the Supreme Court ruling upholding Obamacare.

Matthew Davis, an attorney in Lansing, sent the email moments after the Supreme Court ruling to numerous new media outlets and limited government activists with the headline: “Is Armed Rebellion Now Justified?”

Davis added his own personal note saying, “… here’s my response. And yes, I mean it.”

“There are times government has to do things to get what it wants and holds a gun to your head,” Davis said. “I’m saying at some point, we have to ask the question when do we turn that gun around and say no and resist. [...]

“You can’t have people walking with lattes and signs and think the object of your opposition is going to take you seriously,” Davis said. “Armed rebellion is the end point of that physical confrontation.”
