Waiting For The Fort Sumter Moment

"May you live in interesting times." - Chinese curse 

Insightful essay over at FrontPage mag. 
"The left doesn’t believe in secession. It’s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials. What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.
There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won’t die in darkness.
Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It’s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders.
The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That’s not protest. It’s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun."
Oh, forgot to mention it's also scary as hell.
Pretty difficult to argue with the premise, when the author nails it down so airtight.
And the Leftist @$$clowns in the headlines day to day, out in the streets?
They're the sideshow, not the circus. (Regardless of what they think. cf.: Viet Cong)

And a lot of people may soon get to see the elephant. Up close.

So, how's the stockroom look for riding out a potential CW v2.0?
Tempus fugit.

Make no mistake. This has already turned "hot". The government controlled media is just not telling anyone YET.

No, it hasn't.

Because if it had, you wouldn't need the media to tell you about it in the first place.

Hence the title.

Until recently I wasn't too worried about the prospect of Civil War 2.0, because only one side of the potential conflict is armed. Given recent developments of the Lefties arming up, I'm somewhat more concerned, although I suspect they'd use tactics more akin to paintball than actually military action.

I further suspect if the Leftists DO start getting violent, they'll (in the immortal words of Jeff Cooper, PBUH) find themselves on the receiving end of more violence than they can safely enjoy, because even if they ARE armed, we're better armed and have a better grasp of what to DO with our arms.

The real danger may lie in an unholy alliance of Leftists and Islamists, where the former has the money and resources, the latter has the basic understanding of weapons/bombs and overall nastiness. THAT might make for some interesting times.

Be in no uncertainty:
the Islamists have all the money and resources they want, and have for years.

And the only reason they'd ally with the Left would be a ready supply of not-so-smart fall guys, and plausible deniability.

Otherwise, the Leftist Tard Army is neither needed nor wanted. Even by most of the Left.

The Left getting guns just turns a pack of baboons into an armed pack of baboons, and that's all they'll ever be.

Repeated for emphasis, the shenanigans on the street are purely a sideshow, and by intentional design. They are not the main problem, nor the worst case scenario.

If anything, they're going to provide those of a more freedom-loving bent with a lot of practice on confidence-building soft targets, as warm-ups for the varsity matches.

And doing one will almost inevitably lead to the other, in short order.
Almost like someone has had that in mind all along, right?

Leviathan has to be gutted and what remains afterwards, leash-broken.
That is non-optional.
