Are We on the Verge of Another Civil War?

Self-described anti-fascists vowed to confront the rally while leaders from the far right urged their followers to turn out in large numbers to protest the arrests of multiple members of right-wing groups in the run-up to the event.

You’d think that the idea of a civil war was something we got out of our system once we overcame one of the greatest evils in the history of our nation, but thanks to the left (again) the evil that birthed forth slavery has come raging back.

Racism has once again pervaded the mainstream and as such, many people have been led by the nose to believe that without violence there can be no solution. This is being directly injected into our society’s bloodstream by media and activist groups but, like any drug, the paranoia is completely delusional.

The problems constantly being held up as a pandemic aren’t really a pandemic at all. Regardless, there’s a large part of our population that believes that things are approaching a breaking point.

According to Rassmussen, a poll shows that a good solid chunk of America believes that another internal armed conflict is coming for America:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 34% of Likely U.S. Voters think the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years, but that includes only nine percent (9%) who say it’s Very Likely. This compares to 31% and 11% respectively two years ago. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

While Democrats were more worried about pending civil war in 2018, now Republicans (40%) are more likely than Democrats (28%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (38%) to see a second civil war on the horizon.

There have been multiple musings over this. Tim Pool, a popular political commentator and journalist, has been mulling over this idea for some time and he believes it next to inevitable.

It should be understood that it’s entirely possible that a civil war could happen. As more and more people become violent and use said violence to literally conduct hostile takeovers of city blocks, the idea that an actual revolution could happen is going to take root in more than just a few minds.

The question, however, isn’t if one could happen. The question is how it would go down, and all clues point to the fact that this civil war would be bloody, but there’s no indication that it would be long.

For one, these “revolutionaries” have shown that their bravery falls apart the moment someone on the other side begins to get serious and they’re either outnumbered or outgunned. It doesn’t take much to make them flee in terror.

Let’s not also forget that these revolutionaries are rich white kids with little-to-no experience in the outside world. Even their professors lived bubbled lives. The moment things became inconvenient, morale would decrease to nothing and many would only want to go home to get a Starbucks frappuccino and play some Call of Duty.

This isn’t even mentioning the fact that, while I can’t confirm this, many of them have absolutely no experience when it comes to strategy and tactics. Firearms training isn’t exactly something they put much stock into either, given the fact that many of them don’t even think guns should be legal in the first place.

Between the lack of experience, understanding logistics, supply lines, training, and actual willingness to be on the front line of a war, whatever civil war these pro-socialist, anti-capitalist would-be soldiers think they’re going to wage is likely going to be a sad affair that will be laughed at in the future. Even the idea that they could get further than the suburbs in their own city is a laughable idea.

The civil war is over and it hasn’t even begun yet.
