Republican Senator Claims ‘The Left’ Will Start a Civil War Unless Federal Highway System Abolished
On Thursday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) delivered a speech to the conservative Federalist Society that would have been more at home on Alex Jones’ radio show than at a gathering of many of the most powerful lawyers and judges in the country.
In it, Lee warned of a brewing civil war, and claimed that the only way to avert violence would be to eradicate a long list of federal programs including “the interstate highway system,” funding for “K through 12 public education,” “federal higher education accreditation,” “early childhood education, the Department of Commerce,” “housing policy, workforce regulation,” and what Lee labeled the “huge glut of federally owned land.”
Seriously, this is not hyperbole. A sitting United States senator actually said these things.
Looks to me like the Greedy Old Perverts are threatening war unless they can turn all power over to the states, like it was in the good old days of Jim Crow, slavery, and embalmed beef.
