Cassius wanted to add Antony to the killing in the Senate the day the senators targeted Caesar. Brutus disagreed saying that they did not want to seem blood-thirsty, but acting on principles of love for Rome and the nobility of the country.
Cassius' quote, then, simply translated would be: Antony's speech would not have effected the crowd and offended us so much if you had listened to me and Antony was silenced/killed at the same time Caesar was."
