(AURN) — A former Republican Illinois congressman and Donald Trump supporter suggested he’s going to take up arms if Trump loses the November 8th presidential election.




Joe Walsh said in a tweet:

Walsh was pressed by CNN Host Jake Tapper as to exactly what he meant by that statment, Walsh replied, “It means protesting. Participating in acts of civil disobedience. Doing what it takes to get our country back.”

Walsh, host of the syndicated Joe Walsh Show later clarified further on NBC5 Chicago, “We’re talking about a musket,” Walsh said, “I could’ve said grab your slingshot and let’s go. Metaphorically, I meant grab your muskets, if Trump loses, man, we’re going to do what we have to do. We’re going to protest and boycott and practice civil disobedience. We may start a third party.”

“I’m serious. I don’t think a musket would do much good these days, but it’s time for civil disobedience on the right.”
