As we approach 2020 and what will be the most important election of my life I see a political battlefield that is especially turbulent. Political battles are nothing new and our nation has had plenty of them over the years and you can say that a vigorous political debate is good for the Republic.
These days there is a component of our political debate that is not something that can be ignored or explained away as simple fervor. There is a palpable and especially vicious hatred within the debate. This emotional force is not one that is confined to the topics at hand but permeates our society in many ways. Hatred is an ugly word and an ugly sentiment and I use this word with the respect that is due if one is to toss an accusation into a discussion containing such an implication.
It is beyond apparent that the left and especially the activists for the left that they hold a disregard for the Conservative/Deplorable/Red State citizens that goes far outside of what would be called a conversation in the body politic. The disdain is a hatred of all things emanating from the Red state nation. There are uncountable examples of blue state/liberal/socialist activists aggressively attacking Red state citizens with threats and verbal language and assaults that are beyond firm evidence of this hatred and disrespect. From the day after Trump beat Hillary, the rhetoric started and has risen in intensity ever since. There was violence in the streets the day of Trump’s inauguration in DC with acts of destruction of private property recorded on film for the news at 11.
I would take a moment to reflect back upon the reaction of the red state people after the half black messiah was elected in 2008. Obama was universally despised by the right for his policies and agenda as well as his disrespect for our heritage and nation. Even so, I cannot recall violence in the streets. I cannot recall any red state citizen destroying property. Even with the rise of the TEA Party who opposed Obama and his tactics their rallies were peaceful and they cleaned up after themselves in ways none of the blue state citizens have done. While the red state citizens were absolutely devoted to their beliefs, they never expressed blatant hatred of the blue state citizens. The issue was the president in office at the time and it was confined to political activism and not directed personally towards any Obama supporters.
Today we are embroiled in a faux impeachment process that is illegal in its nature and operating behind closed doors which is contrary to the original intent of our founders. We have blue state activists (Antifa) attacking citizens with whom they disagree with them and causing these people bodily injuries. President Trump’s rally in Minnesota had blue state activists attack red state Trump supporters with several blue state activists attacking single individuals and causing injuries upon them. None of this was provoked by any physical act. The only provocation was the mere presence of people who support President Trump.
As we head to the 2020 election the activities of the left are obviously full of hatred for the right. Not just the president but the people who support him as well. The leadership of the left in congress have done nothing to reduce the violence nor have they said anything to condemn it. The rhetoric from the democratic/blue state/left is fueling this violence and it will only get worse. If things get really out of hand, people will end up being injured seriously or worse.
I have written of Civil War II and it seems more likely to come about than ever before as I consider the situation we are in. The unbridled hatred of the left for their opponents and President Trump has spilled into our communities across the nation and I am quite sure it will only get worse. All the while, the ones who are making this situation worse by acting in more and more aggressive ways including violence is the left/blue/liberals. I cannot recall an incident where a conservative/red/deplorable did anything to deserve such violent and active hatred.
The left is tearing this nation apart. They are willing to destroy the civil debate in order to silence their opposition. Only a desperate and ruthless individual or group of individuals would consider this to be healthy or even permissible in a civil society. I am left with the conclusion that in the very near future this hatred will spawn a battle between the opposing parties that will be without precedence in our history with the exception of the shelling of Fort Sumter in 1861. That was an act of war without any question and if the left continues their violence and hatred, we will end up in the same place. CWII.
Only a fool, or an evil genius would encourage open violence and warfare between political enemies and they would do it purely to manipulate the situation in an effort to use it to their advantage. That I am even considering thoughts such as this reflects the awareness I have of the serious and deadly threat that continued violence by the left poses. It is the likes of Antifa and others who are raising the level of discord and violence and not the red/deplorable/conservatives. Where our nation goes from here through the next election is up to the left as far as whether it will be more violence and hatred or not. If deaths and massive damages occur as a result of their misplaced aggression, it is the democrats fault for not maintaining a civil and decent conversation.
