Civil war becomes inevitable in the USA Reply

We’re still a long way from actual civil war. I know of no evidence that state security or the ruling class is actually threatened. The stock market is thriving and the military industrial complex shows no sign of fracturing into warring factions.

The problem is no longer who was legitimately elected President of the United States, but how long can the civil war be postponed? Far from being a fight between a narcissistic TV presenter and a senile old man, the country is being torn apart over a fundamental cultural issue that has been smouldering since its inception.

A Mob Attacked the Capitol for Trump. Now What? Reply

By Mike Giglio, The Intercept

I spent the last year talking with people from militant groups on the American right and always driving toward the same question: And then what? You’re armed and trained and linked up with your outfit. And then what? You’re ready to stand up to the leftist mob or defend Donald Trump from the inevitable attempt to steal the election. And then what? You’ll fight if you have to. OK, and then what?

I keep pushing down this path because in the end, it leads to war and I want to have a discussion about what that means. Because I hope that behind all the prepping and posturing from that side — and the level 11 hysteria that pervades America generally — we all realize that we’re comfortable and fat and free, and that real war means your house will get wrecked and your kids or your neighbor or the cashier you trade hellos with at your fully stocked supermarket will die.

The Republican Party’s Death Drive Reply

By Michael Warren Davis, The American Conservative

On January 6th, a mob of Trump supporters staged a coup—a PR coup for the Democratic Party. Liberals have been calling Republicans “fascists” for as long as anyone can remember. The trouble is, there’s never been any real proof.  There was no Beer Hall Putsch, no March on Rome, to which the Left could point and say: “There! You see? They’re trying to take over! And it’s not the fringe, either. These are ordinary, rank-and-file conservatives trying to overthrow democracy.”

The Moral and Intellectual Collapse of America’s Political Parties Reply

By Alan J. Devine, Chronicles

It is no longer news that 2020 saw a collapse of political discourse and public behavior in the United States. Trends that developed over many years intensified last year. One major political party had as its candidate for president a magnetic figure who can also be nasty and lacking in verbal self-control. The other party featured someone blander and more petulant who also lacks verbal restraint.

“It is Only a Matter of Time Before a More Competent Trump Emerges” Reply

By Juan Dal Mosa and Warren Montag, Left Voices

Some people argue that the far Right is small. Should we be reassured that “only” 45 percent of Republicans, that is, 30 million people, support the riot at the Capitol? We must reject facile economism to understand the Trump phenomenon. This is more than a simple contradiction between base and superstructure.

Two Principles of Racial Equity that Outrage Liberals Reply

by Don Fitz

The May 25, 2020 murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis sparked a civil rights explosion.  It ignited pushes to demilitarize the police, reallocate police over-funding to necessary social services, end economic and power divides, and replace symbols of oppression with recognition of those who have suffered and resisted.

Leftists Sell Out, Congratulating Billionaires for Fascist Depravity 1

As I have been predicting for 20 years. Big Tech is becoming a dominant faction of the ruling class (along with Big Finance and the always present BLOB). The professional managerial class has become the new clergy with totalitarian humanism as its ideology. Tech industry managers are the new Board of Censorship.

Amazon Says Its TERMINATING Parler, Reply

I think it’s pretty safe to say at this point that the Democratic Party is now the political arm of “Big Tech” and the major social media outlets are merely a division of the Democratic Party’s media complex, along with CNN, MSNBC, and the traditional networks. The same kind of interlocking relationship that exists between the Republican Party, FOX, Big Oil, and the defense contractors. If it wasn’t true before, it is now.

 

 

After failed attack on Capitol, QAnon asks if it can still ‘trust the plan’ Reply

By Caitlin Dickson, Yahoo News

The past 72 hours have been a rollercoaster of emotions for Trump supporters — especially the millions who have bought into the web of online conspiracies that fall under the umbrella of QAnon.

Ever since a violent mob, including some with ties to the cultlike Q movement, invaded the U.S. Capitol in a failed attempt to stop Congress from certifying the results of the presidential election, Q believers have been trying to reconcile what did — and didn’t — happen in Washington this week with their own conspiracy-ridden world view.
