Civil War?

WFLAA Winter Haven man was arrested on Thursday after posting on his Facebook page that he was going to shoot members of Congress and their families, depending on which way the Supreme Court justice confirmation vote went.

He also allegedly threatened to shoot any local or federal law enforcement who responded to his home on Jim Keen Boulevard.

Unlike the usual examples, this guy appears to be on the right and is actually a gun owner. He says he was making fun of liberals. His friends seem to support that.

I'm posting this to note that the violence is escalating on both sides. Even if this guy wasn't serious (and since he was arrested without incident, I'm inclined to think that's the right take... but that doesn't necessarily mean he shouldn't face consequences for the threats), the constant actual violence and threats coming from the left are starting to get a response on the right. And that's a significant danger signal.
