The beginning of America’s bloody Civil War is generally remembered as the opening shot on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor on April 12, 1861.
And Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, fears another Fort Sumter is in our near future.
“America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry,” the controversial conservative tweeted Sunday. “After that comes Ft. Sumter.”
King’s tweet linked to an article from the conservative online news site PJ Media about a group of protesters who were staging an “occupy”-style campout in front of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement holding facility in Portland, Ore.
