Ex-state senator says “it may take shedding of blood to keep this Republic”


Russell Pearce, a former president of the Arizona state Senate, appeared to advocate for violence in the U.S. to save the Republic in remarks delivered earlier this week, AZ Central reported.

Pearce, considered a far-right Republican, spoke Monday at a rally in Gilbert, Ariz., dubbed “Patriotism Over Socialism.”

Other featured speakers included Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward and Laura Loomer, who was banned from Twitter, Uber, and Lyft for her comments about Islam, the Arizona Republic reported.

“And it may take the shedding of blood to keep this Republic,” Pearce said. “And I, for one, am willing to do whatever it takes.”

Pearce was recalled from office in 2011 over anti-illegal immigrant emails and comments. On Monday, he lashed out at state lawmakers, according to a video published by azfamily.com.

“We have stupid leaders, stupid politicians, and it’s time we start replacing those that refuse to stand up for the values that we have shed blood for,” he said, according to the paper.

Pearce is best known for ushering in Senate Bill 1070, which gives police officers the authority to determine a person’s immigration status during an arrest for a state crime and detention. MSM considers it a far-right law.

He also told a joke about being old enough to remember when there were two genders. That probably got him in more trouble than the “shedding blood” comment.

Pearce works as a Maricopa County Treasurer and powerful forces in the state now call for his firing.

Loretta Lynch, Tim Kaine, union leaders, actors like James Cromwell have called for “blood,” “fighting” and ‘blood and death in the streets,” but that’s okay.

The cry in ancient Rome as it crumbled was : ” increase the dole”. Those cry’s for more freebies hearkened the beginning of the end. Now weak kneed pols seek to appease every cry for more on a daily basis as empty our treasury.

It is getting close. Pearce is speaking the truth and has spoken the truth and that is not allowed by the Left. I wonder how it might start. There are many YouTube videos of what is happening in South Africa. Totally different politics than here but in some ways similar. Get ready.

I hate it to think Senator Pearce is correct as I have felt that way for some time. I don’t want to see it come to that and it is all because we as Americans have been undermined by those elected and non elected who run our government. No, I am not advocating violence but the left is constantly committing acts of violence against us as are the criminal trespassers the left wants to freely enter our country. I definitely do not advocate any attempt to overthrow our government either. The problem with our government is not the system but those who have been running it (into the ground) for a long time. And it is allowed to happen because too many Americans realized they could vote people into office who would give them things, i.e. welfare. And now that greed has crept into the middle class and they want even more; free healthcare, free college, etc. So yes, Senator Pearce is probably correct. After all, it took shedding of blood to create our unprecedented and wonderful republic but greed took over. It may take shedding of blood to bring our lost freedom and liberty back. I pray it isn’t needed.

History indicates that “humans” can never straddle the fence…it inevitably has to end in confrontation. About eight hundred years ago the Dark Age that began circa 600 AD started to recede…currently the ideology that ushered in that period are again on the rise and apparently from their success to date are poised to “redo” the cycle…

This IS the Dark Ages. Education is producing a generation of ignorant children
