Remember all those breathless, sanctimonious screams by the MSM during the heyday of the Tea Parties about "inciting violence" yada yada yada? Check out what happened on MSNBC's "Dylan Ratigan Show" yesterday afternoon:

Yep, that's radical cartoonist Ted Rall who's arguing the case for violent overthrow of government.

Quoting John Locke, Rall argues that “the people have an obligation to revolt,” and that “nothing will radicalize the American citizen more than being thrown out of their home by a bank.” Citing frustration with both parties, who he called “in bed with the duopoly,” Rall also noted that “the American left has been very peaceful since the early ’70s… and where has it gotten us?

Ratigan did not seem particularly flustered by the proposition, though he did ask if Rall saw any alternatives, especially peaceful political dissent, or what he called “European semi-violent revolt.” “If you could get everybody to do it,” Rall responded, “it could work, but you can’t even get everyone to stop littering.”

So yes, the [clip above] is a discussion on cable news over the various merits of violent left-wing overthrow of the American government – signed, sealed, and delivered with a cherry on top for those on the right looking for evidence to counter the claim that it’s their side that’s doing the fearmongering.

Check out the update at the bottom of this post for more enlightening tidbits of Rall's "Anti-American Manifesto."

Well, the Founders envisioned a revolution every 30 years or so. "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

That said, I don't think this would go very well for the left wingers. They have zero chance against the US Armed forces and slightly more chance against non-left wing America but frankly, who has more guns? Lefties or righties?
