A Cold Civil War

May 2, 2017
By Tim Jones


Back in January, conservative columnist Dennis Prager gave his take on the state of the union – and it was not good.  The piece, titled “America’s Second Civil War,” begins with the following:

It is time for our society to acknowledge a sad truth: America is currently fighting its second Civil War.

 

In fact, with the obvious and enormous exception of attitudes toward slavery, Americans are more divided morally, ideologically and politically today than they were during the Civil War.

The radicalism of the ’60s has come to fruition, and a new kind of civil war has begun.  Although there isn’t any shooting or fatalities, at least not yet, make no mistake: a “cold” civil war has started.  It’s a civil war that’s in its infancy and very likely could become a hot civil war like the big one in the 1860s.  This one will involve a small group of extreme leftists creating enough mayhem to ignite widespread violence in their goal to overturn the existing political, social, and economic order that’s been in place since the founding of the country.  Places like Berkeley and Portland, as well as most of academia, are testing grounds for what will spread beyond the perennial locations of protest and higher education.  As a recent piece in the Weekly Standard bluntly put it, “This Is War.”

Now we’re in the midst of the ultimate battle in the culture war – the battle for the First Amendment – and if Republicans don’t recognize this is a war and fight like their existence depends on victory, nothing else will matter.

The Democratic Party is in the process of being completely co-opted by the most extreme leftists, who were midwifed out of the tumultuous 1960s.  There have been feeble objections by the current leaders of this new left, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, to let conservatives have their say in the midst of a nationwide veto of the First Amendment by violent and unruly protests.  They even criticized Obama for getting a $400,000 payday speaking to Cantor Fitzgerald, the epitome of the Wall Street financial organizations he railed against during his presidential campaigns and administrations.

The pleas of Sanders and Warren to uphold the sanctity of the First Amendment had a shelf life of about twelve hours and were completely ignored by the mainstream media.  Even Bill Maher and the ACLU have spoken out against the radical “antifa” (as in anti-fascist) left.  The only coverage this group is getting is on conservative websites.  But during a recent rally in Boston, Sanders and Warren appeared together and reverted to form by egging on their faithful followers and signaling their extremist base to stay the course in the “revolution” by preparing for their next big fight against Trump.

  1. Antifa is a minute blip on the danger radar. I urge all to consider the many dangers posed by excess diversity and multiculturalism. A house divided can not stand and that is what the USA is increasingly becoming. The only folks benefiting from the masses divided are those in the current positions of immense wealth thus power within the USA.

    Toss in the unholy alliance between big business and big government and tyranny is in position to lord over We, the People. The complexities of what I describe are immense and can barely be touched upon in this format. I urge all to keep my words in their thoughts as you read news stories of all types covering the bizarre affairs occurring constantly within the USA.

  2. It absolutely is a civil war. The left, as usual, has fired the first shots, killed innocent police and other innocent bystanders. Nothing will stop it from going full circle, best to take off the rose colored glasses.

  3. It said no casualties, yet. Not even “that we know of”. The Elders are dying. Children are dying from the lack of attention they deserve as ANTIFA draws resources from them.
