Deplorable: KY Gov. Matt Bevin Calls For Bloodshed If Trump Loses

Since the circumstances of his election are still somewhat suspect, he may want to moderate his calls for blood.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin made an appearance at the "Values Voter Summit" last weekend to rev up the haters and "patriots" for November.

During his speech, Bevin related a story. "Somebody asked me yesterday, I did an interview and they said, 'Do you think it’s possible, if Hillary Clinton were to win the election, do you think it’s possible that we’ll be able to survive? That we would ever be able to recover as a nation?' And while there are people who have stood on this stage and said we would not, I would beg to differ," he said.

He continued, "But I will tell you this: I do think it would be possible, but at what price? At what price? The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood, of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else? The patriots. Whose blood will be shed? It may be that of those in this room. It might be that of our children and grandchildren. I have nine children."

"It breaks my heart to think that it might be their blood that is needed to redeem something, to reclaim something, that we through our apathy and our indifference have given away," he concluded.

What exactly does he think bloodshed will be necessary to accomplish? Will abortion clinic bombings commence yet again? Another federal building? What?

This is irresponsible, eliminationist talk. It is red meat for the deplorable white supremacist base and nothing more. Shame on him. He belongs in the Basket of Deplorables now.
