Somebody asked me yesterday, I did an interview and they said, “Do you think it’s possible, if Hillary Clinton were to win the election, do you think it’s possible that we’ll be able to survive? That we would ever be able to recover as a nation? And while there are people who have stood on this stage and said we would not, I would beg to differ.
But I will tell you this: I do think it would be possible, but at what price? At what price? The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood, of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else? The patriots. Whose blood will be shed? It may be that of those in this room. It might be that of our children and grandchildren.
I have nine children. It breaks my heart to think that it might be their blood that is needed to redeem something, to reclaim something, that we through our apathy and our indifference have given away.
Sounds like Bevin is saying the fat-assed white fundamentalist Christians attending the Values Voters Summit he was addressing will have to team up with Bevin’s nine tots to take up arms against the tyrannical Hillary Clinton. But nah — he clarified later:
Bevin later told the Lexington Herald Leader that he was referring to the sacrifices made by members of the U.S. military.
“Today we have thousands of men and women in uniform fighting for us overseas and they need our full backing,” he said in a statement. “We cannot be complacent about the determination of radical Islamic extremists to destroy our freedoms.”
I don’t doubt for a moment these folks’ bowels seize up at the sight of a burkini. But damned if they aren’t making me skeert of my husband’s pickup truck and the ungrammatical church marquee down the street. These people are fucking nuts.
