Ted Rall Discusses the Violent Overthrow of Government on 'The Dylan Ratigan Show' (VIDEO)

Appearing on 'The Dylan Ratigan Show' (weekdays, 4PM ET on MSNBC) left-wing cartoonist Ted Rall brought up the specter of a violent overthrow of government during a discussion of his new book, 'Anti-American Manifesto.'

"I argue that violence is the last case scenario. It's the worst case, nobody wants it. It's easier to go other routes," Rall explained. "But we've seen for the last two years, since the economy melted down, that neither the Democrats nor Republicans nor any possible third party is poised to step in."

"In terms of passive resistance, the American left has been very peaceful since the early '70s, since the Kent State shootings," he continued. "And where has it gotten us? Millions of people marched against the war in Iraq. What did it do?"

Hinting at the violent overthrow of government rarely helps you win an argument (Just ask Sharon "Second Amendment Remedies" Angle.) However, it probably isn't a terrible strategy if you want to sell a book.
