Roger Stone warns those who might consider voting for impeachment of assassination and civil war

I’m hesitant to even bring it up, as I don’t, as a rule, take elderly swingers with Nixon tattoos all that seriously, but former Nixon “dirty trickster” Roger Stone went on the record earlier today predicting all out civil war if Trump, the man he helped put into power, was impeached… He event went so far as to warn those voting to impeach Trump that their lives might be in jeopardy.

Any politician who votes to impeach the President, Stone told TMZ, “would be endangering their own life.” “Try to impeach him, just try it,” Stone went on. “You will have a spasm of violence in this country, and insurrection, like you’ve never seen… This is not 1974, the people will not stand for impeachment.”

Here, if you’ve yet to see it, is the video.

For what it’s worth, I’m not suggesting that Stone is anything more than vile, little jackass with a big mouth. I didn’t take him seriously a few weeks ago when he instructed the President, by way of social media, to imprison Hillary Clinton, and I don’t think that he has any credibility whatsoever as far as mainstream politics is concerned. But, with that said, he was a senior advisor to candidate Trump, and it’s not hard to imagine that his dirty tricks didn’t help propel the failed real estate developer turned reality television celebrity into the White House. Given that, and the fact that Stone still holds some sway with the Alex Jones set, I think it’s at least worth our notice, though. Whenever a close associate of the President predicts civil war, I think we should at least note it, right? And that probably goes double in the wake of something like we just saw in Charlottesville, where we had armed Nazis in our streets.

    Civil War? I’d hate to see it. But can anyone tell me one thing that still unites all Americans on the same side? Maybe we should consider a peaceful separation.

    The more red a state is, on average, the more they rely on federal money. If we broke up the union, they’d be fucked.

    Anonymous–the Republicans have a plan for that. They’re floating the idea of disallowing people to claim state taxes as a federal deduction (which is one way the large, mostly blue “giver” states keep the balance a little more even); that way they can take an even bigger share of federal tax dollars and use it to subsidize the “taker” mostly red states. This will strain the resources of our most economically productive states and probably do a considerable amount of economic damage, but it’ll make liberals mad so it’ll be a winning GOP issue.

    Move to the Republic of California before they make their break. That is your paradise. When it becomes autonomous you will live in peace and harmony with the wide open border of your dreams. It will be so beautiful. You must go! I want your dreams to come true…for you…and all the Californians…who choose to stay…

    I imagine that we will see some violence if Trump is impeached. We are talking about white people but especially white men losing their privilege. When have they ever lost privilege without getting violent? I mean, obviously *most* people will have nothing to do with any kind of civil war and the vast majority of white men will not get violent if Trump is impeached. But there will be a few and we will see more domestic terrorist acts. There might even be a few hundred people who band together with their militias and commit treason by declaring war on the USA but I can’t see it being a huge movement.

    I mean, I don’t think most Trump supporters are that awful. I think a lot of things still unite us even though there are fundamental differences in philosophy. Most Americans believe in God. Most Americans believe that murder is wrong, that dogs and cats are nice, that loving your family is good, etc etc. There is way more to unite us than to divide us.

    But also as Anonymous has pointed out. Blue states have the money and those Red states would be screwed if they were to succeed. Not to mention that even the most Red states sill have around 25% liberals. There just isn’t the geographic separation between the sides that there once was and that matters. Are people going to kill their neighbors? I suppose it could happen as it has happened before in other places but it still seems unlikely

    I think you need to contrast these remarks with those of Steve Bannon. Bannon is trying to persuade the fringe groups that Trump has betrayed them. Meanwhile Stone is warning people of the die-hard loyalty toward Trump of this same unstable group. Who is actually supporting Trump these days. If you look at the pictures of his rallies, I doubt the portly, baby boomers would have the ability to wage a civll war.
