Prominent Conservative Threatens "Mass Bloodshed"

At tonight's State of the Union Address some Democratic and Republican lawmakers are making a hilariously empty gesture towards the "New Civility" by sitting next to each other instead of across the aisle (to resolve a lack of chumminess in Washington, the Nation's biggest problem).

Meanwhile, here's the latest from the people whose job it is to deliver right-wing political wins by hatemongering, demonizing opponents and flattering conservatives with absurd comparisons to the Founding Fathers:

CNN's Erick Erickson is also Editor-in-Chief and "Dear Leader" of the conservative blog Red State, so this charming passage posted by "The Directors" is presumably his doing:

Here at RedState, we too have drawn a line. We will not endorse any candidate who will not reject the judicial usurpation of Roe v. Wade and affirm that the unborn are no less entitled to a right to live simply because of their size or their physical location. Those who wish to write on the front page of RedState must make the same pledge. The reason for this is simple: once before, our nation was forced to repudiate the Supreme Court with mass bloodshed. We remain steadfast in our belief that this will not be necessary again, but only if those committed to justice do not waiver or compromise, and send a clear and unmistakable signal to their elected officials of what must be necessary to earn our support.

As Jamison Foser at Media Matters points out, Erick Erickson is providing State of the Union Address coverage for CNN tonight.
