In a post, which was written by Ruy Teixeira and Peter Leyden on Medium entitled California is the Future, they call for a “civil war,” the destruction of the GOP, and a notion that California runs everything from sea to shining sea. Forget bipartisanship, mob rule is what’s needed. The right should be mercilessly crushed into oblivion.
The “civil war” will be won at the ballot box and demographic shifts, namely through the so-called emerging Democratic majority. The overall theme is quite explicit: conservative Republicans are not welcome until they reform.
Should we worry? Well, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted out Monday after reading the piece, “good read”. If there were any lingering doubts about Twitter’s perceived bias against conservatives, here you go. Not to mention Facebook’s banning Diamond and Silk for being ‘unsafe to the community’.
In all, the Medium post notes the similarities between our first civil war and this one. We had two separate Americas. Two separate economic models in each sphere.
Has the United States of America reached that point again?
Common ground with the Left and Right, which sometimes seems regional, does not seem to exist.
We cannot come together, but maybe we don’t have to. Nothing is written in stone. Lines are re-written, borders move.
As a nation, we are not indivisible. America is politically, ethically and spiritually polarized, divided with literally nothing in common.
While in modern times we have seen Germany, the Soviet Union, the Baltics and other places rewrite borders. It is what time does–borders move, countries and regions split or meld. They do this for a myriad of reasons.
When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…” — The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
The United States was founded on two things: Judeo-Christian values and a limited federal government. The entire platform of the modern Democratic party does not stand for this.
This is the party that booed the very mention of the word “God” at their 2016 convention. This is the party whose candidates openly “joke” about killing anyone who won’t turn in his weapons. Senators joke on national TV about killing the U.S. president and the host responds by clapping like a seal.
It has become a most dangerous game. Both sides are getting bolder, and they are getting more violent. They have no interest in rational compromises.
If you happen to believe in God and limited government, be ready to be mocked and hated by the Democratic Party, media, Hollywood, the public education system, and now even corporate America. Conservatives have lost the culture war.
Example: A mass shooting happens at a high school in Florida. Both sides do agree something should be done. People on the Right think we should increase school safety. People on the Left think we should restrict the gun rights of every American citizen, and they’ll try to destroy the career of anyone who disagrees (ask Laura Ingram). Or you may be assassinated while playing softball.
Sooner or later, the left-wing rage mob will start coming for the careers (and lives) of anyone who sees things differently. Be sure to hide that NRA card.
We say this can’t happen here, but real domestic unrest comes is coming. Is there a peaceful way out?
Should either side be expected to live under a value system that they find unacceptable? The most peaceful solution may for Americans to agree to go their separate ways. Two conferences under one league banner.
