Civil war…

Has there ever been a bigger oxymoron?

The American Civil War has been called one of the bloodiest and deadliest in our nation’s history. It has sent reverberations through time – as we’re still feeling its effects 150 years later.

Yet…

It’s far enough away that people have forgotten how devastating it was to our young country.

And that’s what’s truly scary…

Because as the old adage goes, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Now, don’t think the fact that we’re even having to mention the words “civil war” together when talking about the United States is downright ludicrous is lost on me…

I understand how absolutely insane it is that the words are even being mentioned as an option in today’s day and age – but here we are.

Civil war?

Are you serious?!

There have been whispers by whackos on social media mentioning it here and there – but that’s easily dismissed. They’re whackos! You can also see people talking about how their cat says, “I love you” on social media – so it’s easy to dismiss outlandish craziness.

However…

They’re not alone.

The whackos on CNN have been talking about “civil war” with regularity, too. Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, and contributor Robin Wright have all been talking about civil war – so it may be time to pay attention.

Don Lemon said that President Trump was, “clearly trying to ignite a civil war in this country”…

Chris Cuomo often compares Trump as the antithesis of Lincoln – talking about what steps Honest Abe took during the Civil War that Trump could never do…

And CNN contributor, Robin Wright, has even penned an article titled, “Is America Headed for a New Kind of Civil War?”

It’s not the words that should worry us…

It’s the frequency.

This is something the left seems to constantly be talking about – social media, mass mainstream media as well as print…

They’ve even forced the right to start talking about it on Fox, as it seems to be something at the forefront of the liberal mind.

With all this talk about civil war coming from the left…

One can’t help but wonder what they’re trying to do.

Are they trying to incite open violence?

Are they trying to widen the divide between the left and the right?

Or are they just using scare tactics to keep their sheepish viewers glued to their screen in order to garner more advertising revenue?

It’s unclear what their true aim is…

What is clear is the fact that more and more people are starting to discuss the possibility – and that’s definitely not a good thing.

What would a new American Civil War even look like?

During the first Civil War, we had clear and defined battle lines – the Mason-Dixon line was the agreed-upon separation between the Union and the Confederates…

But that really wouldn’t be feasible in today’s age.

It’s not North Vs. South…

It would be the right vs. left – conservatives vs. liberals – and the battle lines would be anything but defined.

It wouldn’t be north vs. south, state vs. state or even neighborhood vs. neighborhood…

It would be household vs. household.

And what makes the idea of a new civil war truly frightening is the fact that the fighting wouldn’t gain anything besides casualties on both sides…

They wouldn’t be fighting over territory…

They wouldn’t be fighting for their rights…

They’d be fighting to annihilate their enemy.

That’s it…

Death would be the directive. They wouldn’t be fighting for anything – they’d be fighting over ideologies.

Mini-militias would form on both sides whose sole aim would be the murder or death of those on the other side – simply because they think differently than them.

How can these “news sources” NOT see how dangerous even talking about a new civil war is?

They need to stop…

NOW.

This isn’t a game we’re playing. They may only be thinking about advertising dollars – but what they’re not thinking about are the consequences of such rhetoric…

Which would be the destruction of the United States of America.

Or maybe this is what they TRULY want?

Either way – it’s up to US not to give it to them.

We will use the one weapon that liberals fail to use…

Our minds.

We’ll use facts and logic to defeat their emotions and opinions…

And that victory will be much more satisfying than any kind of physical battle would.

Besides…

We have all the guns on our side – it behooves them to listen.
