They’re in open rebellion, sir.
“How bad will things get? Some degree of really, really, really really, really fucking bad. This will not be like the Civil War, where at least you had a neat geographical dividing line.
Geographically, it’s going to be mostly urban versus rural. A county-by-county red-and-blue map of the 2016 presidential election would be a good way to understand how this particular balloon is going to pop. The red has a lot more land and a lot more whites and a lot more guns. The blue has a lot more institutional and financial power and a lot more nonwhites.
And I hate to break this to you, but this is a race war. It’s not Republicans versus Democrats, East versus West, individualism versus collectivism, Christians versus atheists, or any of the things they’re trying to say it’s about. It’s a race war.
Why? Because the war’s official rallying cry starts with the word “Black.” This isn’t Blue versus Grey. This is White versus Everyone Else.
I didn’t want a race war. No one I know did. But one has obviously been declared.
I didn’t want to be right about all this.
Just as everyone knows they’re going to die but kind of has to pretend they aren’t just so they can get out of bed in the morning, I knew this was coming but I tried to pretend it would happen after I died.
And now it’s here. So what do you do?
Do you shut up? Doesn’t work anymore. Even “white silence is violence” now. First, they made it so that every word out of your mouth is “hate speech.” Now it’s “hate speech” even if you don’t say anything.
They aren’t making it easy, are they? …”
If you are silent, you are violent.
You’re going to be forced to choose sides.
Suppose a miracle happens and Trump wins the 2020 election. The violence in the streets will only worse. A house divided against itself cannot stand.
