Whatever one thinks of Breitbart, he's a well-connected media person who is popular among a large segment of the population and in the video below is shown speaking to Tea Party members. In the video he states that there are elements in the military who would engage in treason and is also suggesting that if Tea Partiers bring out the guns, the military will back them. I think the Tea Party's nihilist goal is to bring the nation to its knees so that people become as desperate as they were in the 1930s and install fascist (American-style) leaders. Breitbart is signalling to the right wing that they have the power to do so. Andrew Breitbart's Dangerous Insanity: The Video | Blogtown, PDX "We outnumbered them in this country and we have the guns ... I'm not kidding. ... and I have people who come up to me in the military, major-named people in the military, who grab me and say 'thank you for what you're doing; we got your back.'"
