    Trump is in the middle of quite possibly his longest uninterrupted meltdown yet. During this meltdown, he has also threatened to have the Ukraine whistleblower whacked. So it’s safe to say that Trump has no real grasp of what’s happening around him, let alone the gravity of an American president implying that we should have Round 2 of the bloodiest conflict in American history if he’s removed from power. This is a man who’s most at home when he’s honking the horn of a big truck or complaining about how Graydon Carter was very unfair to him in the 1980s. On this one, he’s out of his league.

    The much bigger problem is that the “civil war like fracture” is already here. It goes back at least to the election of Barack Obama (and its lineage back even further, to Reconstruction, the civil rights movement, and everything in between) and the right-wing reaction to the first black president. White supremacist violence has never really left us, but it’s reached new heights in the Trump era, from James Fields to Robert Bowers to Patrick Crusius and many others whose names will thankfully die in obscurity.

    According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the number of active hate groups operating in the United States in 2018 was 1,020; twenty years ago, it was 457. There’s a reason that this growth is happening under Trump, who is treated by the white supremacist movement as anywhere from a savior to a well-meaning reformer who’s up against it to a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The Trump administration’s antagonism toward minority communities is well-known: apart from the rhetoric, there’s the Muslim ban, the ICE raids, the ripping away of migrant children from their parents and throwing them into cages, the refusal to use the tools of the Justice Department to reform police departments around the country, and so on.

      "If we define an American fascist as one who in case of conflict puts money and power ahead of human beings, then there are undoubtedly several million fascists in the United States."

    What happens isn’t people taking to the streets with guns. What will happen is the red states will start ignoring the federal government. They will start ignoring federal laws. They will stop collecting federal taxes. The states will order their police to stop enforcing gun control and other laws they disagree with. The feds will then respond with force and punishments. And then it escalates and escalates until some states start declaring independence.

    That’s how the first civil war started. It’s roots go back to the late 1830s and 1840s. And it was a series of events where the southern states just started giving the middle finger to D.C. on everything from taxes to slavery. The actual war didn’t come till later.

    Everyone thinks the civil war threat is stupid because it will just be a bunch of rednecks with shotguns against an entire military. But that’s not really how it happens.
