When last we saw Confederate Yankee, he was sneering derisively at people who didn't have jobs, saying that they should just get off their lazy butts and find some work. Now, however, Mr. Yankee has decided to stop attacking the unemployed and to go full-bore at the wicked elitists in the United States government.

(And yes, the fact that making fun of the jobless is about as elitist as you can get is lost on Mr. Yankee.)

At any rate rate, Mr. Yankee is now so a-miffed at them thar elitist in Warshinton that he's a-pushin' his followers to prepare for a full-blown armed insurrection:

We have moved "closer to midnight" not because of any singular act , but because of inertia of a political class that does not respect or enforce the laws, or this nation's sovereignty. We have diametrically opposed views of how our nation can and should be run, and it appears that there is very little room left for negotiation.

Propagandists for the elitists at Media Matters seem troubled by A Nation on the Edge of Revolt. They portray it as a threat when "Conservative media figures openly discuss armed revolution."

I hope they do feel threatened. Attempts at peaceable protests have been met at turns by feigned ignorance, then mockery, then attacks on the character and motives of those would not sit quietly by. Perhaps it will take a serious review of our capacity for violence to get them to realize we shall not surrender our individual liberties to their lust for power.

I love the calculus on display here: "We tried to do this peacefully, but you people laughed at us. Now we gots the right t' start the killin'!"

At the end of the post, ConfYank appears to cool his jets a bit, saying that armed revolution isn't per se his desired outcome:

I have not yet been swayed to the point of view that an armed conflict is inevitable, TN_NamVolunteer. But we are close enough that one would be wise to prepare for a possible conflict, just as one would prepare for any coming storm.

For Mr. Yankee, we imagine this preparation will consist of hording Mountain Dew and playing "Red Dead Redemption" over and over again. Heck, that thar game could teach Mr. Yankee not just t' shoot things but t' lasso the womenfolk too!

Bet them sissy public schools never taught ya t' lasso no fe-male like that 'un!

Can you help us out?
