Trump Supporters ‘Preparing’ For Civil War If Clinton Wins: ‘Patriots Will Overthrow The Government’

During an interview with NPR, a Georgia Trump supporter said he’s “preparing for civil war” if Hillary Clinton wins the election.

Citing a bizarre encounter with a Muslim woman last year as proof that armed revolt might be necessary to keep people like himself in charge, Jimmy Arno told NPR he’s concerned about the direction of the United States and predicted that “war is going to break out if Hillary Clinton’s elected.”

Arno, an auto mechanic and the father of two teenage children, went on to say that he is considering “joining a local militia group,” because he wants to be prepared in case his darkest fears become a reality.

“Should martial law, civil war — whatever — break out in this country, they will uphold the Constitution and rebuild our loss,” he said. “The war that’s going to break out if Hillary Clinton’s elected, if that happens. Your patriots are going to overthrow the government.”

Jimmy Arno blames President Barack Obama for the increase in racial tensions that worry him.

“I know that we were a whole lot further along racially eight years ago than we are today,” he said.

“If you go to a movie theater, you’re liable to get shot, you go to a mall, you’re liable to get shot,” Jimmy Arno added. His wife, Dani Arno, expressed concern about a Black Lives Matter protest at the local high school, and Jimmy expressed dismay at the demonstration against the display of Confederate flags.

The Arnos used to fly a Confederate flag but took it down out of courtesy after some of their daughter’s friends said it made them uncomfortable, although they still hang a framed portrait of Robert E. Lee over their living room couch.
