‘What?!’ Swalwell throws fit over poll that says 1/3 of voters think time to take up arms against gov’t is near

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) expressed severe agitation over a poll that found one-third of American voters think US citizens may have to take up arms against the government to protect their rights and country.

The sobering poll is from the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.

In addition, the poll showed that a whopping two-thirds of Republicans and independents alike believe the government is “corrupt and rigged against everyday people,” while a slim 51% majority of liberal voters feel the same way.

“What?! One-third of Americans say it’s time to take up arms against our government? I know EXACTLY who is inspiring the treason curious,” Swalwell chirped and of course, blamed Republicans for the mess Democrats have made in government.

According to the poll, 28 percent of all voters, including 37 percent of gun owners, agree that “it may be necessary at some point soon for citizens to take up arms against the government.” That’s a sentiment held by approximately 35 percent of Republicans and about 35 percent of Independents. One in five Democrats also feels that way.

The rift between the left and right is growing. Fifty-six percent of Americans allegedly believe elections are fair, according to the poll. But only 33 percent of Republicans feel that way.

Over 70 percent of Republicans and more than 70 percent of Democrats agree that the other side “are generally bullies who want to impose their political beliefs on those who disagree.” And fake news seems to be at the heart of it all in one way or another.

Swalwell is typical of those widening that gap and blaming the other side for what his party is doing. Witness his unhinged Twitter attack on Republicans after seeing the poll.

“Could it be this winner? @RonnyJacksonTX recently threatened @POTUS Biden to try and take his big gun,” Swalwell tweeted taking the first in a series of pokes at Republicans over the right to bear arms. This one was aimed at Ronny Jackson, who is an American physician, politician, and retired United States Navy rear admiral and a U.S. representative for Texas’ 13th congressional district.

“What about this ‘sharp’ shooter? @RepMTG threatened to execute Speaker Pelosi,” the California Democrat tweeted taking a jab at outspoken Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Next up for Swalwell was Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar, “Then there’s this 24-karat weirdo, @RepGosar. He made a video depicting himself killing @POTUS Biden.”

“Who could forget @laurenboebert — she cosplays as someone who carries her gun at The Capitol,” he tweeted next, taking a pot shot at his favorite target, Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.)

He was on a roll with hatred for Republicans and gun rights.

“Worse…The Land of Misfit (Treasonous) Toys could get more populated if some of these MAGA-Republican candidates win. First, there’s tough guy, ‘Kill the RINOs’ candidate @EricGreitens,” Swalwell tweeted.

“Of course there’s also AZ senate candidate @bgmasters — he said the 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting, but rather ‘killing people.’ Can’t wait to meet him!” he snarked.

“The MAGA-Republican insurrection fantasies even inspired @DrOz to try his hand at the cosplay, promising to use his gun against ‘an overly intrusive government,'” Swalwell remarked, making use of the word “cosplay” once again which makes one wonder if he has a thing for furries and people who dress up as Luke Skywalker.

“Sometimes it’s easier to laugh than confront reality. Yes these elected leaders/candidates are all jokes. But their words matter. Their actions are inspiring violence. And their MAGA-Republican party is more comfortable with violence than voting. We must call it out,” said the Democrat who is basically inciting violence.

And no one is laughing either.
