Freikorps fodder

Via Think Progress, Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.)

I’ve gotten to be good friends with Justice Antonin Scalia, who he and Justice Clarence Thomas are the only ones who have any concept of what the Constitution is supposed to be and, and do what they’re supposed to do as justices by upholding the Constitution. But, in fact every, when I was sworn into the Marine Corp, I was sworn to uphold the Constitution against every enemy, foreign and domestic. We’ve got a lot of domestic enemies of the Constitution (applause) and one of those sits in the speaker’s chair of the United States Congress, Nancy Pelosi.
Isn't that great. A military veteran invoking his military oath to fight enemies of the United States, declaring Democrats and Nancy Pelosi one such (socialist) enemy; this being said in the context of the Second Amendment being necessary to prevent treason. And Broun has a history of such comments.

Like I said, freikorps fodder.

Update: Let's not forget this gentleman.

At a town hall event held by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) yesterday, a man compared Obama to Hiter and said he would “take a gun to Washington if enough of you would go with me”:

President Barack Obama is a fascist.

This and other assertions flew through an emotionally-charged town hall meeting conducted by Sen. Chuck Grassley Monday in Pocahontas.

“The president of the United States, that’s who you should be concerned about. Because he’s acting like a little Hitler,” said Tom Eisenhower, a World War II veteran. “I’d take a gun to Washington if enough of you would go with me.”
Update II: A Republican Congressional candidate went to a gun range and shot his opponent - Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fl) - in effigy.

Update III: A Republican political candidate for the House expressed her view at a Tea Party protest that the Second Amendment is a bulwark against tyranny; as "We have a chance to fight this battle at the ballot box, before we have to resort to the bullet box." (h/t Grung_e_Gene)

Catherine Crabill of Virginia let it be known if the Republicans continue to lose they will resort to the "Bullet Box" to settle elections.
