With escalating confrontations on the part of Leftists against the White House, people are seriously worried about civil war.
Could civil war break out?
Or has it already begun?
Glenn Harland Reynolds writes at USA Today, “Is America headed toward a civil war? Sanders, Nielsen incidents show it has already begun.”
The other day, author Tom Ricks asked whether we’re heading toward a civil war. “I don’t believe we’re to Kansas of the 1850s yet. But we seem to be lurching … in that direction,” he wrote.
Ricks was commenting on “What Democratic rage would look like,” a Bloomberg opinion column that quotes political scientist Thomas Schaller as saying, “I think we’re at the beginning of a soft civil war. … I don’t know if the country gets out of it whole.”
That sounds pretty serious. The column by Francis Wilkinson presents a catalog of things Democrats are mad about — from the existence of the electoral college to Trump’s “propaganda apparatus” — and predicts that if Democrats lose the midterm elections, there will be hell to pay. (And Republicans […] could make a similar list of their own complaints.)
“I don’t know exactly what that would look like,” Wilkinson writes. “But liberals have a great deal of cultural, academic and economic heft, stretching from Hollywood to Harvard. Just this week, someHollywood powerhouses flirted with leveraging their clout against the Trumpist Fox News. There are endless variations on such a power play. If Democrats opt to use their power more aggressively — breaking rules — Schaller’s soft civil war hardly seems unlikely.”[…]
Well, actually this sort of thing seems to be well underway. […] Americans are already sorting themselves into communities that are predominantly red or blue.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

That fact is, the Left has been violent since the Trump campaign, often with the open complicity of Democrat politicians.
Remember these scenes from the campaign?
And then here’s Antifa at the Trump inauguration in Washington, DC.
Here’s Antifa again in Berkeley when Milo was supposed to speak:
So the latest restaurant harassment is consistent. It was less violent but they weren’t able to hide their identity this time.
Max wants this to escalate.
I agree with the President that she is miscalculating. Soyboys will be no match for the Deplorable Nation.
