Political mouth-off-shooter Joe Walsh recently somewhat walked back a tweet in which he said he would “grab his musket” if Trump loses the upcoming election:
“I’m not talking about inciting violence. I’m saying, ‘If Trump loses, man, game on, grab your musket. We’re going to protest. We’re going to boycott. We’re going to picket. We’re going to march on Washington. We’re going to stop paying taxes. We’re going to practice civil disobedience.’ Whatever it takes.”
I’ve been seeing a lot of brave social media pledges of tax resistance from both Clinton & Trump supporters, conditioned of course on the defeat of their chosen candidate. Most of it is just people worked up to a lather and saying any old thing that comes into their heads. But it may be planting seeds in some other minds, and I wouldn’t be too surprised if something comes of it.
