On the Brink of Civil War

It’s unreal:

A CNN reporter appeared stunned after interviewing several Trump supporters who said Joe Biden will NEVER be their president, and that they’re going to Washington D.C. to see President Trump sworn in for a second term.

“Are Trump and his supporters just sore losers?” CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan asked a pair of Trump supporters.

No. We haven’t lost,” the man said simply.

“Will you accept Joe Biden as president?” the CNN reporter asked.

“No. He will never be my president,” the man replied.

“Mkay…but you know, you accept that he’s going to be inaugurated?”

“No, I don’t.”

“How could that change at this point?” the CNN reporter asked.

“There could be a civil war, you never know,” the man said.

When asked if he wants a civil war, the man replied: “I don’t. Show us the voting machines. Show us the ballots. Show us that this was a fair election, or we’ll never accept another vote again. Ever.”

People have begun to inhabit separate realities. In one, there’s President Trump, and in the other President Biden. There’s no longer a single common shared reality.

And perhaps that’s why there’s talk of civil war. How can people get along if they have little or nothing in common with each other?

It’s not just a contested election. There’s a lot more that is no longer shared. For example:

Democrats propose ban on ‘he’ and ‘she’ and all gender-specific words in new rules for Congress. Republicans called the move ‘stupid and ridiculous’.

People are being asked to stop using words like man and woman, husband and wife, brother and sister.

And then many people believe that the world is being swept by a deadly pandemic, known as Covid-19, requiring whole cities to be locked down, everyone wearing masks. Others think that it’s no worse than the annual flu epidemics.

And then there are many people who think we’re facing a climate catastrophe, with rising global temperatures, and rising sea level. Others think the global climate is pretty much the same as it ever was.

And then some people think that a few whiffs of tobacco smoke will give them lung cancer. And some people don’t.

That’s five different separate realities. And five different polar opposite views. And there are probably more. Society has divided in two. How can the two co-exist?

The answer may well be: they can’t.

And that’s why America is on the brink of civil war. And it’s also why US gun sales have been exploding in recent months.

It’s a very dangerous situation. But it’s also one which CNN doesn’t seem to understand. Because, well,…. the folks at CNN occupy a separate reality from everyone else.

For the record, I believe that 1) Joe Biden has stolen the election. 2) men and women are different from each other, 3) Covid-19 is no worse than flu. and 4) we’re not facing any climate catastrophe.

    Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton’s supporters had pulled even half of this shit back in 2016?

    • Frank Davis says:

      Hillary Clinton never accepted her defeat in 2016.

      • Joe L. says:

        And her supporters (which includes the mainstream media) have spent four years baselessly claiming that Trump stole the 2016 election via “Russian Collusion,” even after it was proven to be a complete fabrication. So it’s fair to say that Hillary Clinton’s supporters have actually “pulled this shit” times 100.

        Now the same mainstream media pundits are claiming that election fraud simply doesn’t exist and is just a figment of Trump’s “deluded” mind, even though this election saw unprecedented changes, like some states offering universal mail-in voting for the first time in history, and supposedly resulted in Joe Biden walking away with more votes than any other Presidential candidate in history even though he rarely left his basement for much of his campaign, could barely fill a parking lot when he held a rare “drive-in” rally, and lost 19 out of 20 “bellwether” counties.

        I’m politically independent and think for myself; I don’t play the ridiculous two-party divide-and-conquer game. But I know bullshit when I smell it, and it’s gotten so strong lately it’s nauseating.

    Occupying a position of authority takes guts, it is relentless. I would not wish it on anyone who is not up to the task.

  3. Steve Brown says:

    Just listened to Ry Cooder playing “Feelin’ Bad Blues”. It’s a dirge for the US.
    It’s “Bye-bye America”.

    Yep, I couldn’t agree with you more. I tried, but I was not successful

    Thousands of women knit pink pussy hats to wear at Trump protest marches
    Dec. 29, 2016

    “Almost every day for the past few weeks Celia McCarthy has sat down to knit a pink hat. To be specific, a pink hat with ears, colloquially known as a “pussy hat.”

    McCarthy has knit 12 pink hats so far, but only one is for her. The rest she plans to send to Washington D.C. where they will adorn the heads of some of the hundreds of thousands of women who are expected to march on Jan. 21, the day after Donald Trump is inaugurated as the nation’s 45th president.

    McCarthy is not alone. Thousands of women around the United States (and a few from Thailand and Australia) are busy knitting pink hats for the Washington D.C. march. Some women are knitting the hats in the privacy of their own homes. Some have launched knitting circles. Others are going to yarn stores to knit with strangers with a common vision.

    The idea, launched by two women in Los Angeles and the owner of their local yarn store, for the Pussyhat Project is a big “F … you” of sorts to Trump and the values he espouses. They are hoping that the 200,000 marchers all wear the pink hats and send a strong message of resistance.”
