Deplorable Is As Deplorable Does, Cont'd.

Let's meet a delightful couple from Lawrenceburg, Georgia: Jimmy (of course) and Dami (ditto) Arno. They are supporters of neo-fascist bigot Donald "Rump" Trump who think (and perhaps hope) that if Hillary Clinton is elected, a civil war will break out. Here's "patriot" Jimmy, who's considering joining a militia:
“Should martial law, civil war — whatever — break out in this country, they will uphold the Constitution and rebuild our loss. The war that’s going to break out if Hillary Clinton’s elected, if that happens. Your patriots are going to overthrow the government.” (emphasis added)
We'd bet our homes that Jimmy's never read the Constitution (OK, maybe the comic book version), so he wouldn't be familiar with its definition of "treason*." It's worth noting that, until recently, Jimmy flew a Confederate flag in his front yard, his wife spoke out against Black Lives Matter at a local high school, and they have a portrait of Gen. Robert E. Lee in their living room. Oh, and who does Jimmy blame for the increase in racial tensions? Why that racist usurping Kenyan Muslim Barack Obama! We suppose because he brought all of the racists (like Jimmy) out of the woodwork when he was elected.

*"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." Article III, Section 3, U.S. Constitution
