Maybe the Damocles sword hanging over his head is starting to make him crack. Maybe he's just always been dangerous. Either way, Gaetz has decided to go full-bore with the accelerationism, telling adoring fans in a speech about Silicon Valley boogeymen they should prepare for a violent confrontation with the government.

A video shared by Newsweek on Friday purported to exonerate Gaetz of calling on supporters to raise arms against Facebook and YouTube. A shorter clip had gone viral the night earlier, in which he's heard railing against the tech industry, before seeming to suggest that an armed solution might be the ticket.

"Silicon Valley can't cancel this movement, or this rally, or this congressman," he said, followed immediately by: "We have a Second Amendment in this country, and I think we have an obligation to use it."
