Madison Cawthorn to young conservatives: If there’s a civil war, ‘patriotic Americans’ will be ‘victorious’

Speaking at a conference hosted by Turning Point USA this Tuesday, North Carolina GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn said that radically changing the country and getting back to “our founding values” is going to come with a price.

“We’re going to face some dark times as a nation. I genuinely believe that. I think we have an opportunity in the next four to six years to prevent kinetic force — countryman on countryman — from ever meeting,” he said, adding that he has “no doubt that we would be victorious if that ever happened. ”

“But remember, that would be so immoral and wrong if we said, ‘Hey, you know what? Let’s just kick off a civil war,’ and then we’ll just go ahead and go to that point,” he said.

Cawthorn went on to say that it’s time for conservatives to “get shrewd.”

“In Genesis, it talks about taking dominion of the earth … I mean, it means go out and take control of it. Dominate the earth that you’re given,” he said, insisting that conservatives need to start playing hardball.”
