A Gates of Vienna reader sends these observations about the vicious culture war currently raging in the USA, which he thinks may evolve into a full-on civil war.
Is America heading towards a second Civil War?
A violent outbreak of civil war usually arises as the final stage of a constantly escalating series of rhetorical accusations between two polarized and irreconcilable sides. We are seeing this today in the confrontation between Republicans and Democrats.
In a nutshell, the Democrats consider the Republicans to be “Nazis”. And because the Republicans are “Nazis”, the Democrats refuse to listen to anything they say. Instead, the Democrats only listen to themselves, and those Democrats who are loudest and most aggressive in their leftist agenda keep pushing all the Democrats farther and farther leftwards, in a repeating cycle of positive feedback (self-reinforcement).
The Democrats consider traditional white conservative Christian Republicans to be a dangerous enemy who are preventing the spread of liberal “progressivism” throughout America. But the Democrats still do not dare to call the Republicans “Nazis” outright. Instead, they use the politically correct terms “racists”, “fascists” and “nationalists”.
The Democrats characterize the Republicans as “white supremacists, Christian bigots, and male chauvinists”. Their ultimate goal is to establish a utopian one-world government where whites do not dominate. To accomplish this democratically, without open warfare, they have thrown open America’s borders, and invited all of the Third World to enter America (primarily Latinos, Africans, and Muslims), where they will eventually be able to outvote the Republicans and make them a permanent minority.
The Democrats have a fixed ideology that is really a religious dogma. They consider white conservatives to be evil (what the Communists used to call “reactionaries who cannot be re-educated”). Democrats refuse to believe that there is any genetic component to human intelligence, so that every human being is a potential genius as long as he is educated by the Democrats. Accordingly, when America becomes majority non-white, and all those non-whites have been educated by the Democrats, then America will lead the rest of the world into becoming a global utopia.
I do not see how America can survive intact when Democrats become the permanent majority. The Republicans will probably secede, and form a new nation in America’s heartland, leaving both coasts and the Mexican border in the hands of the Democrats.
