Eagles Nest gift shop habitué Madison Cawthorn opened his home-schooled pie hole again:
And here’s the operative passage:
Speaking at a North Carolina county GOP event, Cawthorn repeated the lie about US election systems being “rigged” and “stolen,” something he said would “lead to one place, and that’s bloodshed” if it continued.
“And I will tell you, as much as I am willing to defend our liberty at all costs, there’s nothing that I would dread doing more than having to pick up arms against a fellow American. And the way that we can have recourse against that is if we all passionately demand that we have election security in all 50 states,” the North Carolina Republican continued.
…which seems absolutely clear that he is saying the civil war starts after the next election that doesn’t go MAGA’s way because of course they always WIN. One of his comms people (that’s all Maddie has, because he has no legislative agenda), uh, tries to correct the record that the boss is not a seditionist and/or insurrectionist:
Cawthorn spokesman Luke Ball told CNN in a statement Monday, “Congressman Cawthorn is CLEARLY advocating for violence not to occur over election integrity questions.”
“He fears others would erroneously choose that route and strongly states that election integrity issues should be resolved peacefully and never through violence,” Ball said.
And I’m the Czar of all the Russias.
Cawthorn is part of that group of 2020 Representatives who only came to Congress to hurl cinder blocks off the legislative overpasses to the cheers of Possum Hollar, rouse the rabble, and kiss Vulgarmort’s ass.
Cawthorn’s quote, above, is Object-Lesson Number One on why the January 6 Insurrection Commission has to do its job and do it quickly: they are telling us their plans, in the open and on record. These people (Cawthorn, Rep. 3-Names et al) need to be stopped immediately or next time (and there will be a next time) we’ll fall as fast as Afghanistan.
