The Patriot Post® · From Uncivil Discourse to Civil War?
By Mark Alexander · Aug. 15, 2018 · https://patriotpost.us/alexander/57674-from-uncivil-discourse-to-civil-war

“Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue.” —John Witherspoon (1776)
The Democrat Party’s1 fastest growing identity-politics constituency has, for the last decade, been coalescing around a theme that is both animating and destructive: Hate. The current chorus of contemptible rhetoric comes from leftist Demo antagonists2, their Leftmedia propagandists3 whose ad revenues depend on conflict and dissent, and the hate-profiteering groups4 now forming “thought patrols.”

Make no mistake: This new constituency is growing more desperate and disenfranchised by the day, and the inherent risks of such hate-filled rhetoric pose an ominous threat to civility5 and to the future of American Liberty6.

Since 1960, Democrats have built their party along lines of division, and now, they rely almost completely on the politics of disunity to sustain their constituencies and maintain their power. Their political playbook has only one chapter: “Divide and Conquer.” The two major lines of this Demo-division are economic class disparity7, created in large measure by their own failed economic policies8, and the socio-cultural victimization9 cards of race, ethnicity, religion, and gender.

But as their political identity constituencies10 began to soften, they have resorted to a new identity attribute to unify all the others: Hate.

Over the last decade, fomenting hate has become the centerpiece of Democrat strategy. But as the party has become more radicalized and its rhetoric more unhinged11, the center-left is being eviscerated12. The net result is that fewer Democrats are proud to be Americans13 and, as an astounding new Gallup poll notes, Democrats now prefer socialism to capitalism14.

Barack Obama15, who was himself a disciple of hate16, spawned in 2011 a movement of “useful idiots17” under the “Occupy Wall Street18” banner. That movement was joined by the so-called “Black Lives Matter19” constituency in 2014 and the emerging “antifa movement20” of self-proclaimed anti-fascist fascists in 2016.

Notwithstanding the fact that Obama’s BLM-fueled hatred inspired the murder of police officers in New York21 and in Dallas22, antifa is now emerging as the most broadly violent of leftist groups. Its riotous confrontations23 in August 2017, targeting the normally quiet town of Charlottesville, Virginia, ostensibly in support of the removal of historic monuments24, prompted liberal Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz to make this clear to his Democrat colleagues: “Antifa is a radical, anti-America, anti-free market, communist, socialist, hard-left sensorial organization.”

These groups have two common denominators. They embrace and spread hate and they subscribe to the delusion of democratic socialism25. They are well organized by statist handlers, including Direct Action Network and Democratic Socialists of America — a.k.a., fascists. They are well financed by their billionaire backers, the archenemies of Liberty26 — George Soros, Tom Steyer, Jeff Bezos, and Michael Bloomberg.

In 2016, socialist/fascists consolidated around the candidacy of Bernie Sanders27, whose non-Democratic presidential primary bid was surreptitiously stolen by Obama’s heir-apparent, Hillary Clinton28. But in reality, Clinton’s Democrats and Sanders’s socialists constitute a distinction without much difference29. Indeed, the Democrat Party’s protagonists, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and of course Sanders, have become a unified chorus of populist socialism deniers30 and hate provocateurs.

The stunning defeat of Clinton in 2016 by Donald Trump31, who has mastered the art of antagonizing his opponents32, greatly amplified the leftist tenor of hatred. The most strident of the Demo hate-spewers have decompensated into an illness alternatively called “Trump Derangement Syndrome33” or the more formal “Trump Anxiety Disorder34.”

But the escalating violence and the unprovoked attacks on Republicans and Trump supporters is no laughing matter.

The most notable of those attacks was in June 2017, when one of Bernie Sanders’s conscripts, an Obama “99%"er from Illinois, attempted the mass murder of congressional Republicans35 on a Virginia baseball field. This deranged Democrat severely wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and injured four others before being killed by Scalise’s security detail. Notably, if Scalise and his security team hadn’t attended this early morning practice, the other 11 members of Congress would have been utterly defenseless.

But the list of other assaults36 is long and growing more violent.

In the last two weeks, the Demos’ hate-filled constituencies have rioted in three cities37: Providence, Rhode Island; Portland, Oregon; and Berkeley, California. I would include Washington, DC, on that list, but the police presence there last weekend largely contained the haters38 before they became violent, much to the Leftmedia’s dismay.

It’s no small irony that leftist protesters are confusing conservatives with Nazis39. Ironic, I note, because the hatred being driven by leftist Demo rhetoric is taking on shades of the 1934 "Night of the Long Knives” purges of the National Socialist German Workers Party, as there is a now-discernible trend of Democrat moderates being pushed aside for hyper-leftist candidates. The most notable case in point would be the defeat of 10-term Demo incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th congressional district by 28-year-old socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez40.

If the brown shirt fits41…

As Rep. Steve King (R-IA), never one to shy away from hard-hitting and controversial remarks, observed recently, “America is heading in the direction of another Harpers Ferry. After that comes Fort Sumter.”

We aren’t there yet.

Our nation’s Constitution and the Liberty it enshrines have been through cycles of assault by socialists, fascists, and anarchist groups for the last hundred years. But what differentiates the current cycle from those of the past is that past movements were never as organized and targeted, nor did they have the tacit approval of a major political party.

The escalating Demo-inspired violence certainly puts our nation on a collision course with disunity on a national scale — if it does not subside.
