We are presently in a civil war – sans the bullets

Daniel Greenfield has made the case that we are presently in a civil war.

Here are excerpts from a speech he made at the SC TEA Party Convention via Canada Free Press.

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.

rump didn’t really win the election. Bush didn’t really win the election. Every time a Republican president won an election this century, the Democrats insist he didn’t really win.

Now say a third Republican president wins an election in say, 2024.

What are the odds that they’ll say that he didn’t really win? Right now, it looks like 100 percent.

What do sure odds of the Dems rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don’t accept the results of any election that they don’t win.

It means they don’t believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.

That’s a civil war.

This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to the left, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate.

The left lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats.

Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war.

  1. As the Civil War began largely because of the election of Lincoln this one has begun largely because of Trump’s election.
    I expect a similar outcome, less bloody than the first but not without some very brutal actions.

  2. I just told a friend the other day there will be a race war, a civil war and WWIII. I just don’t know when or in what order.

  3. As long as the enabler (Ryan) and the appeaser, (McCONnell) are “our” leaders the establishment democrats and traitorous RINOs are safe.

    Diminutive Neville Chamberlains.

  4. As always…I was going to watch 5 Minutes or so…

    Then watched it all..and shared it on FB saying, 39 Minutes

    well worth Your time.

  5. Actually the civil war began because of another regressive tax levied on the south. The south never had sufficient numbers in the congress to prevent the abusive control the north held over them.

  6. Gettysburg took 46,286 and Chickamauga claimed 34,624. Trying to imagine a city of 7,000,000 at war on the east coast. Or a LA or Seattle coming apart at the seams.

  7. I would posit it started in Dallas in July 2016. Five KIA, 15 casualties total, one black supremacist leftist loser blown to shit.

    Then Sutherland Springs, 23 KIA. Kelley was Antifa.

    Then Las Vegas, 58 KIA. Paddock was a leftist-islamist.

    It’s not going to stop until Soros’ money and Deep State commies are eradicated and Trump is our last chance.

  8. Saw a large sticker covering the back window on a pickup truck the other that said:

    We survived Obama
    You can survive Trump.

    But of course they are too uncivil to do that peacefully.
