Dan Bowman, an avid Trump supporter told a WSJ reporter at a Cincinnati rally last Thursday that if Secretary Clinton is elected, "Hillary needs to be taken out."
He continued, “If she gets into government, I’ll do everything in my power to take her out of power. If I have to be a patriot, I will.”
When the reporter asked what he meant, Bowman replied, "Take it any way you want to take it."
The reporter then asked, "That sounded like a threat."
Bowman replied, "What do you think a patriot is?”
Dan Bowman was also interviewed by the Boston Globe and the result was not pretty.
If she’s in office, I hope we can start a coup. She should be in prison or shot. That’s how I feel about it,” Dan Bowman, a 50-year-old contractor, said of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. “We’re going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that’s what it takes.
There’s going to be a lot of bloodshed. But that’s what it’s going to take. . . . I would do whatever I can for my country.”He then placed a Trump mask on his face and posed for pictures.
With Trump constantly telling followers like Bowman that the election is already rigged, it's not a stretch to think that his fiery words will be put into practice.
Armed insurrection, he we come.
Never forget Dr. Tiller.
