People talk about the country being on the verge of civil war. I think we are already there. It’s just that the left has known about it for years while the right has been mostly oblivious to it and in denial. Think of our attitude towards Al Qaeda before 9/11.
I think of the pre-2016 Republican Party as General McClellan and Trump as General Grant of whom Lincoln famously said, “I can’t spare this man. He fights!”
If you’re a conservative, and you haven’t realized this yet, then you’re the frog in the pot of water slowly approaching a boil. Time will tell whether you recognize what’s happening before it’s too late to change it. I suspect the left has overplayed their hand, and the frog is figuring it out and will jump just in the nick of time. We’ll find out in November.
Winter is coming.
