(Republican Insider) – A Republican congressman has raised a lot of eyebrows and started a lot of controversy by stating that if elections in our country continue to be “rigged,” there is going to be “bloodshed,” a statement that you can guarantee sent liberals into hysterics.
According to a report from WND, the warning of potential violence comes from our nation’s youngest congressman, Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina who made the comments as he was speaking to a crowd on Sunday evening.
“The things that we are wanting to fight for, it doesn’t matter if our votes don’t count,” he said, according to a now-restricted Facebook livestream and videos tweeted by a Democratic congressional staffer,” Cawthorn said.
“Because, you know, if our election systems continue to be rigged and continue to be stolen, then it’s going to lead to one place – and it’s bloodshed,” he continued.
“I will tell you, as much as I’m willing to defend liberty at all costs, there is nothing that I would dread doing more than having to pick up arms against a fellow American,” the congressman said.
“And the way that we can have recourse against that is if we all passionately demand that we have election security in all 50 states,” he continued.
Luke Ball, a spokesman for Cawthorn, then put out a statement saying that he was “in no way supporting or advocating for any form of violence.”
“In his comments, Congressman Cawthorn is CLEARLY advocating for violence not to occur over election integrity questions,” Ball said in his statement.
“He fears others would erroneously choose that route and strongly states that election integrity issues should be resolved peacefully and never through violence,” the statement continued.
“Congressman Cawthorn’s views on the 2020 election have remained consistent,” Ball went on to say,” adding, “He raised objections to electors from several states in January because he had severe concerns about how the elections were conducted and how laws were changed last-minute to favor Democrats.”
Cawthron has been one of the most vocal critics of President Joe Biden and stated on Sunday that he’d like to see him given a pink slip and removed from the White House.
“I will remove Joe Biden from office, and then, when Kamala Harris inevitably screws up, we will take them down, one at a time,” he stated.
What really has the left riled up is that Cawthorn referred to the January 6th rioters as “political prisoners” and “political hostages” and then when he was asked when he was going to “call us to Washington again,” he replied by saying, “We are actively working on that one.”
At Macon County GOP event yesterday, Madison Cawthorn called January 6 rioters “political hostages,” and spoke of trying to “bust them out.” Then-

“I don’t have an answer to that one right yet. But we are actively working on this. We have a few plans in motion that I can’t make public right now,” Cawthorn said.
