The New Civil Rights Movement: Breitbart Fantasizes About Killing Liberals: "We outnumber them and we have the guns"
-by David Badash
September 18, 2011- Tea Party darling Andrew Breitbart fantasized about killing Liberals — and especially union members — claiming that conservatives outnumber Liberals, and are the ones who have guns. The pseudo-journalist and media mogul also said he is the subject of death threats, and complained people on Twitter call him “gay.” Breitbart claimed he is favored by U.S. military officers, who, in a civil war, would come to his aid, and several times belittled political activist Janeane Garofalo. Breitbart said all this, and far more, at the Red Mass Group greater Boston Tea Party event in Lexington, Massachusetts on September 16.
Shockingly, Breitbart (archives) seemed to threaten the children of ABC News journalist Katie Couric, saying, “What if we went to Katie Couric’s house, what if the Tea Party showed up at Katie Couric’s house and scared the living crap out of her teenaged kids?”
Breitbart, 42, has a long history of attacking Couric.
Speaking about Liberals, in this video Breitbart can be heard saying, “We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns,” to audience laughter, reminiscent of GOP presidential debates this month during which the audience vigorously applauded at Texas Governor Rick Perry’s record of executing 234 people, and at a later debate, more audience applause at the idea of allowing a hypothetical 30-year old father to die because he was uninsured and had medical expenses.
“I’m not kidding,” Breitbart insisted.
