“Lately we’ve been hearing more and more about a second civil war which sounds impossible in this modern, affluent country. It is not. We talk about Trump as an existential threat, but his side sees Democratic control of government the exact same way. When both sides believe the other guy taking over means the end of the world, yes, you can have a civil war.”
“We are going to have to learn to live with each other or else there will be blood.”
Well, we conservatives have taken over (sorta), and the world hasn’t ended. Much to my disgust, cops haven’t started shooting down Pantifa rioters in the streets, the editorial board members of the New York Times haven’t been sent to the guillotine and we haven’t planted millions of landmines along our southern border — to name but three areas of disappointment.
Something else Maher said:
“And never forget, the single shining truth about democracy: it means sharing a country with assholes you can’t stand.”
Which would be absolutely true, except that we have Democrats trying their level best to subvert democracy with massive voter fraud and a sham impeachment of an elected President — and we’re not even going to mention the disgusting attempts to make America a land of popular majority government instead of the representative republic that it always has been, as laid down in the Constitution.
And speaking of subverting the Constitution, we also have Democrats attempting to end our First Amendment right of free speech with nonsense like hate speech codes, and we all know that Democrats everywhere want to overturn the Second Amendment by disarming Americans — to name yet another two areas of conflict where the Left and conservatives are irreparably separated.
Simple truth for the Left? I don’t want to live with Leftists, Communists, Progressives or whatever you call yourselves today. The essence of the matter is that the two sides have radically different perspectives as to how this country should look, and the two are mutually contradictory. Your side leads to Venezuela and Cuba, even though you say it leads to Sweden. Our side just wants us all to live as the Constitution promises.
So why should we live together? For fear of revolution?
Don’t make me laugh. We already had one Revolution in 1776, and the Constitution won. The Russians also had one in 1917, and the Bolsheviks won — but only readers of the New York Times could possibly think that Russia ended up better than we did.
Don’t even think you can emulate Lenin in the U.S. because you can’t, and you won’t.
We don’t have to learn to live with you; you have to learn to live with us. Or else you can go and live in Sweden, Russia or Cuba because this is our country, you Commie bastards. This is the country of the U.S. Constitution, not Das Kapital.
