Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh is not know for being tactful. This guy says what he means and usually says it in a way that pisses off most of the political class, which is just fine with patriotic conservatives and libertarians. Walsh was back in the spotlight a few weeks ago in a rant spoken directly to Loretta Lynch. Americans loved it and many are also going to love this message.
The Republican Party is on the cusp of a revolution, and the possibility of violence cannot be ruled out, according to former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh.
“I think that we’ve begun a third American revolution,” Walsh told TheBlaze in an exclusive interview over the weekend. “I think people who recoil against both parties and believe in freedom are finally rising up. They’re angry — I mean, look at [Republican frontrunner Donald] Trump — and they want to do something about it. I think we’re at the beginning of this, and I think you’re going to see it play out in the Republican Party because there could be a split in the Republican Party.”
According to Walsh, the first step for “revolutionaries” — or, conservatives, Tea Partiers and grassroots activists — is to “clean out the Republican Party.” If that does not work, he said, a new political party or movement could be on the horizon.
Walsh was spreading his message of revolution this weekend at a conference for college students and told them they would be at the front lines and these young Americans understood and agreed.
“I agree with what he said — the tension between the two parties right now is intense, especially on the college campuses,” 21-year-old Lauren Houck, a student at Eastern Michigan University, told TheBlaze. “What he said really hit home because of how much the 2016 election determines my future.”
