When Liberals Call Him Gay, Andrew Breitbart Fantasizes About Civil War: VIDEO

Picture 1

At a Tea Party function in Boston, a sweaty, pacing, unshaven Andrew Breitbart says he sometimes dreams of civil war. 

"We outnumber (liberals) in this country, and we have the guns. (audience laughter) I'm not kidding." 

And he purports to have the backing of a cadre within the U.S. military. 

The video has just surfaced.  

I'm under attack all the time. They call me gay, there are death threats... There are times where I'm not thinking as clearly as I should, and in those unclear moments, I always think to myself, 'Fire the first shot.' Bring it on. Because I know who's on our side. They can only win a rhetorical and propaganda war. They cannot win. We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns... I'm not kidding. They talk a mean game, but they will not cross that line because they know what they're dealing with.  

Then he says that unnamed senior military officials have personally assured him that they'll throw in with the right-wing in a civil war.

And I have people who come up to me in the military, major named people in the military, who grab me and they go, 'Thank you for what you're doing, we've got your back.' 

They understand that. These are the unspoken things we know, they know. 

On the face of it, Breitbart's admission demands a congressional or criminal investigation. If he's implying that military officials have pledged their armed support to him and the right-wing, those officials are guilty of treason. If Breitbart is lying, he's diagnosable. 

Watch his Strangelove moment, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Such a desperate narcissist.
    I've had dealings with him in the past. Several years back the "L.A.Times" had the two of us in a "dilogue" on th op-ed pages. This was just when he was getting started. Then came the ACORN stunt and most egregious of all his doctoring of a videotape to make it appear that Shirley Sherrod (an Obama official) was a black racist who hated white people. He and his minions have been flailing around for attention ever since.

    His father-in-law, BTW, is Orson Bean -- a brilliant actor ("Being John Malkovich") who in his youth was a communist. Now of course he's a neo-fascist.

    And to top it all off Breitbart is a big supporter of GOProud. IOW he's his own "gay joke."

  2. Psychopathic talker if you ask me as are all Tea Party scumbaggers and their equally crazy Civil Libertarians. Definitely certifiable! By the way, he's married with children but in this day and age, doesn't mean anything. My gaydar continues to twitch though.

  3. Besides proving this man is batshit crazy, his rant proves his side is losing the battle for the hearts and minds of the American people. He wants to resort to violence to try and get his way. Other than the tea party types, the militia and white supremists joining his jihad against liberals and anyone else he deems less than, most people will find this behavior repugnant and will quickly turn on him.

    The truth shall triumph in the end.

  4. Considering the Obama administration did not want to pursue any investigation of the Iraqi war, they won't touch this with a ten foot pole.

  6. Watch when he touches his nose. That is an identifiable nonverbal thing that people do when they are lying.

  7. My personal pet theory is that the tea party actually started out as a sane group of people who were outraged about government corruption and cronyism. The ruling oligarchy noticed and immediately moved to infiltrate them with people who act crazy in order to limit their popularity in the public eye.

    Or sadly, it just happened on it's own by the ultra-crazies who saw something they could latch on-to that would give them the power they lacked in Washington.

  8. Wow. Now I really do know that there are a lot of clueless fags who read this site. Really? You don't know who Breitbart is?

    Remember ACORN? The huge organization that gets out the vote and registers people to vote? Destroyed by Breitbart and his faked / edited video.

    Shirley Sherrod?

    How about Anthony Weiner? That one was on Towleroad. Remember? Weiner's weiner, and one of the most outspoken Democrats destroyed.

    This man is the incarnation of evil. He is what is wrong with the American political system, where unaware idiots are misled into voting against their own interests. Apparently many here are unaware of the puppetmaster behind all these cases. Very sad. Wake up, please!

  9. @El-Brucio: The funding of the tea-party is well documented. It is astroturf, not grass-roots.

  10. Stock market crash. Millions unemployed. Financial/economic depression. Hyper-militarization. Demands for law and order. Extreme right wingers dressed up in weird costumes. I've misplaced my calendar - is it 1933 Germany already?

  11. @Rowan,

    And the British Empire wasn't 'mean' [ditto Spanish, Portuguese, French, etc.]? The people who gave the world communism, Marxism, fascism [European+Asian] and slaughtered tens of millions [actually probably at least 200 million in wars, death camps, starvation] weren't [aren't] 'mean'?

    What's your opinion of extreme leftwingers? Nazi Germany came about as a result of a backlash against [a long with other factors] extreme leftwing, uber 'progressive' politics and ideology.

    Reagan, Thatcher, Sarkozy, etc. came about due to a backlash against extreme leftwing ideology. Obama got elected due to the financial 'crisis' and bailouts, but it looks apparent he won't have the staying power of Thatcher, Reagan, or even G.W.

  16. There's a marvelous interview with Jon Stewart in the new "Rolling Stone" in which he points out that once you get away from the media and talk to actual people you discover that precious few are as polarized and ideologically rigid as said media likes to claim. The media is addicte to an absolute /Left/Right dichotomy with no nuance or variation. That's why hectoring turds like Breitbart osak up so much air time. He represents no one but his paranoid little self and a handful of acolytes and toadies.

  17. A few years ago there was an article in Harper's magazine about the these so called 'freedom fighters'. People that are in the armed forces and on the police force who are waiting for the sign that the revolution has begun and will side with their right wing nut brethren. No joke.

    Next, they'll get the ovens ready for us.

  18. He's also a liar - right wing nut jobs DO NOT outnumber liberals. And yes, Andrew, we have guns too....

  19. I always thought, at least per recorded history, that the real cause of the nazi's rise to power was the world-wide great depression and the impact it had on the already bankrupt german economy, you know where a loaf of bread was 250,000 marks in the morning and 400,000 marks by the afternoon. It was spurely economic in it's origins along wioth the reparations demanded by France, England & Co by the Treaty of Versailles versus the alleged depravity of culture of the Weimar Republic.

  21. It is perhaps time, no matter how unpalatable or against our grain, for some of us to consider arming ourselves. But of equal importance is our physical fitness, ability to gather, rate, and disseminate imformation, to be willing and able to house, heal, and, counsel each other, in general to be a hard target that would be perceived by outsiders as costly to engage. Perhaps as a start some of us could consider becoming licensed hunters and amateur radio operators, aquiring "first aid" skills, and dusting off that old gym membership. Please forgive me for suggesting we take on some of the trappings of our enemies but I do fear for our kind. Don't forget a good trigger lock.

  22. Sedition: stirring up rebellion against the government.

    Treason: betrayal of one's country to an enemy.

    All elected officials and military officers take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of The United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    By conspiring with unnamed officers of the US military, it sounds to me like Breibart is a domestic enemy of the Constitution and may be guilty of both sedition and treason.

    Where is the Department of Justice in this? The FBI? Homeland Security? This guy is calling for armed insurrection and should be arrested without further delay.

  25. I meant to add to my missing calendar/Germany 1933 comment (why no delete or edit button?): Demonization of religious minorities (muslims, non-fundi-christians) and persecution of gays. The elimination of trade union membership. The treatment of moderates and liberals as communists and socialists was implied.
