Ha Ha Ha the ideologies, & numbers, on BOTH sides in Charlottesville were hardly anything new.


It's a relatively new trend in the last few decades of American politics. And it does seem to be ratcheting up.

This is not to say there is not precedent.

Not new, just coming out of the closet.

Are you guys finally coming around to my contention that a civil war is coming?

I still don't think it will come to that. War is a brutal thing.

Though we might see things get more violent.

Well, I think things are already plenty violent. I think we may be reaching a tipping point soon.

How do you think the hostilities might taper off? What would bring peace among the conflicts?

The Dems and the Reps working together to get things done.

Interesting point. I can see the argument of tying in partisan politics with the violence we see on the streets today.

But how will the Dems and Reps work together? The two sides are at constant war over control and power.

Honestly, I don't have any one answer.

But what we saw in response to Charlottesville is one path it might take. Many of the tiki torch holders had their identities released on the internet and this has led to a few of them getting fired.

The worse it gets, the more the normal people will reject the alt-right and Antifa. That's my hope anyway.

There would be no Antifa without the Fa.

It's purely a reaction.


The Fa is the root problem causing violence.
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.
