Far-right voices are frothing about a looming civil war – ThinkProgress
The backlash to the Trump administration caging immigrant children has led to store owners asking White House officials to not eat in their restaurants and to protesters publicly confronting those supporting Trump’s policies. Now, voices on the far-right are increasingly unified in their only solution to the matter: civil war.
While several far-right figures have been speculating about a looming U.S. break-up for some time, recent rhetoric is a marked escalation from even a few months ago, when certain historical illiterates were only calling for an “amicable divorce.”
Now, according to increasingly shrill analysts — and even certain members of Congress — a fratricidal war is the only potential fix for the United States’ domestic tensions.
The far right media trumpets claimed that the ‘liberals’ were starting a civil war on July 4th. Well, here we are on July 6th, and the civil war has not broken out. Another conspiracy theory bites the dust.
