While speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. Saturday night, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican, said President Obama and other Democrats are waging a war against religious liberty and warned that a rebellion is brewing as angry Americans are ready for what he called a "hostile takeover" of the nation's capital, the Associated Press reported.

"I can sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States," he said, "where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American Dream for our children and grandchildren."

According to Jindal, there is a "silent war" being waged against religious liberty, the same liberty he said the country was built upon.

"I am tired of the left. They say they're for tolerance, they say they respect diversity. The reality is this: They respect everybody unless you happen to disagree with them," he said. "The left is trying to silence us and I'm tired of it, I won't take it anymore."

While Jindal's words struck a chord with conservatives tired of efforts by the left to turn the country into something that resembles the former Soviet Union, the liberal hate machine struck back, accusing Jindal of wanting armed rebellion.

"However, I defy them (or FOX News) to point to one incident in the 8 years of the Bush presidency where anyone on the left ever said anything about rebellion, secession, second amendment revolutions, or anything approaching armed standoffs with the government," one person wrote at the Daily Kos, apparently ignorant of the many calls for Bush's assassination. A movie depicting the left's primary fantasy even won an award in 2006.

As we have reported many times in the last four years, liberals have openly called for the murder of Republicans and conservatives. Some have targeted specific individuals, like Sarah Palin or Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Others, like gay sex columnist Dan Savage, have gone all-out, wishing death on every Republican or conservative. The repeated calls for violence and death have made some wonder if liberals, deep down, really want a second bloody civil war in America. Readers may recall that liberals actually threatened civil war if Romney won the 2012 election.

Jindal wasn't finished, as he applied humor in answering whether Obama is either incompetent or ideological.

"Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes? You know, it is a difficult question," he said. "I've thought long and hard about it. Here's the only answer I've come up with, and I'm going to quote Secretary Clinton: 'What difference does it make?'"

According to event organizers, over 1,000 evangelical leaders attended the three-day gathering and heard from a number of Republican and conservative leaders.
