Virginia Republican candidate calls for armed revolution

Catherine Crabill, a Republican candidate for the Virginia 99th District House of Delegates has called on followers to mount an armed revolution if they fail to succeed at the ballot box.

Crabill made the comments July 15 while talking about a resolution from one of the local “tea party” groups. After reading through a resolution from the group, she said “war is inevitable…let it come…We have a chance to fight this battle at the ballot box, before we have to resort to the bullet box.”

After the comments surface on YouTube, Crabill was interviewed by a Fox affiliate who asked her specially about the comment:

Crabill says she refuses to take back the bullet box remark, and says she was only quoting Patrick Henry, who helped call for the American Revolution. “I think there is a threat of violence,” Crabill said. “I think you can push a free people so far before they say enough is enough.”

Despite the comments Crabill remains a candidate and continues on her merry way. Catherine Crabill video as follows:
