On Wednesday night, Sarah Silverman issued a tweet in which she fantasized about a violent military coup against the Trump administration, sparking a considerable amount of criticism.
“Wake up and join the resistance,” she said. “Once the military is with us, fascists get overthrown. Mad King and his handlers go bye bye.”
WAKE UP & JOIN THE RESISTANCE. ONCE THE MILITARY IS W US FASCISTS GET OVERTHROWN. MAD KING & HIS HANDLERS GO BYE BYE❤❤❤❤ https://t.co/Y2WZbL012A

Here’s just some of the responses she got:
You're fighting for a lost cause, Sarah. You're practically giving Trump a second term, with your incendiary rhetoric.

You're *literally* calling for a military coup. Do you think that ends in democracy?

you do know that this is sedition and you can be tried and jailed for it?

Wait… you're hoping for a military coup? You've come unhinged.

She’s been unhinged for a while…

It would be interesting to see if anything comes of it…
Silverman’s tweet happened the same night that liberal hatemongers in Berkeley went unhinged over an appearance by Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos.
It’s enough to make one believe liberals really do want a second, bloody civil war over Donald Trump.
