Bring it on assclown - it’ll turn out quite a bit different than the voices in your head tell it will.

This with the other call for suspending elections by that governor makes me think bribery is going to go mainstream to regular government workers.

Why bother with your boss or commander when it cannot be removed arguably. These are not calls for “revolution” but for the established.

Um, Cornel... the elite aren't trembling. They have no need to tremble before a buck-toothed geek like you. Likewise, the trustfund slackers "occupying" Wall Street are a joke.

Regardless of the corruption of the bankers and brokers, I'll defend them against you communist butchers if forced to choose. Of course, the better answer is to take both groups out.

You'd think West would want to preserve the system that allowed a sub-par thinker like him to ascend to such intellectual prominence.

What other country in the world would give a rats arse what this buffoon thinks?

He needs to be careful about what he wishes for.

I can guarantee that the type of revolution I and other family members and friends have in mind is not at all what this little turd is envisioning.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

-CS Lewis.

Who is West’s Gen. Washington? What type of government does West want?

You either do the groundwork up front or you’ll have your very own Napoleon.... dumba$%...

Americans like West are stupid if they think that a revolution will absolutely create a new, and lawful, democratic-republic. Just because. Out of thin air.

West is an idiot talking like idiots talk.

I hear a muffled voice. It sounds like it's coming from the ground. It sounds a little bit like Thomas Jefferson.

What's that, Thomas? Something about The Tree Of Liberty?

Cornelius forgot another thing -

the people they intend to kill during their “revolution” haven’t been disarmed yet.

0bama was working on that “under the radar” and got caught.

Not the same country at all. America in the Revolutionary era was almost entirely composed of self-reliant individuals, families, small communities.
Now about half of Americans are depending on government and nearly all the other half are kidding themselves thinking they’re not.
How well would any of us do if suddenly we found ourselves on our own, to the extent that a contemporary of Jefferson was on his own?
And who’s willing to revolt, as some of them did? Anybody?

Irony of rusty irony! What Mr. West’s extremely small paradigm (and brain) does not understand, is the Tea Party IS the revolution… West, Obama and the Liberals are the reactionaries as they seek to maintain the status quo of BigAss all powerful Central government!! Their "revolution" like marches in Lybia, Iran and Syria in support of the dictator, all must be contrived, "rent a mobs" (like Wall Street) bussed in ("astroturfed?" to borrow a phrase)... Tea Party is REAL grass roots bottom up! They DO scare HELL out of West and the "Plantation" Leftists! VIVA REVOLOC’ION!

From how many yards would Cornel like to have his revolution, and in what caliber?

The most their little urban revolution will achieve is force financial institutions to relocate to safer areas. Hopefully they would choose flyover country America. The infrastructure to do business is no longer needed in a central location.

Cornelius West is a creation of the American elite. He is the typical affirmative action “Doctor” (possibly a bit more literate than the average). I am sure he is comfortable in a $1,000 suit while decrying the plight of the poor. His mind is more suited to picking lettuce than teaching. West’s call for revolution inspired Robert Stephens, a George Washington University Law School student (average cost: $70,449/year), to throw a fit that made me think of a 5 year old.

West calls for Revolution...
Bev Purdue wants to cancel the election...
Michael Moore says fork over now before the mobs get ya...

The Left is in full-panic mode, and all of their masks are coming off now.

Be very careful what you wish for, Mr. West. You just might get it, and I suspect you’ll end up on the losing side.

Anyone ever try to watch and listen to a tirade by West on C-Span or some other channel? You’ll end up wondering why the guy isn’t in a straightjacket he’s that nutty.

In the highly unlikely event of a “real” revolution in the US. Cornel West would as likely find himself first against the wall instead of the leader he imagines himself to be.

If he were a leader, he would be consumed by his own revolution just as Robespierre who led the Reign of Terror was himself consumed by it.

I wish they would start something. With no false bravado intended at all... bring it, I’m ready to get this finished. I’m sick and tired of these asses niggling away at our principles. I’m ready for them or us to be gone and I do mean gone.

Has that motley mob figured out what their "demands" are yet? They keep insisting their demands be met, then mumble that they haven't actually figured out what the demands are.

Unfortunately, you are right, I am just old enough and experienced enough to actually have some idea of what is involved in doing the things our ancestors did. I literally grew up working from the age of six or so. When I wasn’t in school I was doing some kind of chores on the farm. I plowed a mule from about age ten until I finished high school and went into the military. We have a lot of people who fantasize about going back to the old ways but very few are capable of doing so and even if we all had the skills only a tiny percentage of the current population could be supported that way. I don’t know what I need to know to go back to that life and I am certainly way past the age when anyone should have to and there are very few who know as much as I do. Some say it ain’t brain surgery and it ain’t but it damned sure ain’t no bed o’ roses either.
