Liberals may talk tough, but if there were a war between left and right, “they cannot win,” says Andrew Breitbart: “We outnumber them in this country, and we have the guns,” the conservative blogger told Tea Partiers. After the crowd laughed, he said, “I’m not kidding,” Mediaite reports. “They talk a mean game, but they will not cross that line because they know what they’re dealing with,” Breitbart noted at an event in Lexington, Mass.

Breitbart said his opponents are “vicious, there are death threats, and everything,” and when he’s “not thinking as clearly as I should,” he thinks, “fire the first shot.” Liberals “are the bullies on the playground, and they’re starting to realize, what if we were to fight back, what if we were to slap back?” he asked the enthusiastic crowd. “Major named people in the military” tell him “‘We’ve got your back.’” At Mediaite, Tommy Christopher writes that Breitbart probably isn’t serious—but "maybe it’s time he had a nap."
