Is Donald Trump Preparing To Wage War On His Own People?
Now that Donald Trump has revealed his inner fascism, and how far he is prepared to go to flout the rule of law.
Now that a poll commissioned by his beloved Fox News suggests that most Americans believe that he is tearing the country apart.
It might be a good time to ask WHY?
Why in a dangerous time is he trying to divide Americans, instead of trying to unite them? Why is he trying to create the conditions that could lead to a new and bloody civil war?
One that could set the whole of North America on fire...
Is he incompetent, or evil, or out of his mind, or all of the above?
And the best answer I have heard so far is the one from Charles Blow, who believes that Trump is trying to raise an army.
Why does Trump continue to do things that are so divisive and alienating to the majority of Americans? Why does he keep fueling the white-hot fire of his base to the exclusion of the other segments of the country?
I have a theory: Trump and the people who either shield or support him are locked in a relationship of reciprocation, like a ball of snakes. Everyone is using everyone else.
But in addition, and perhaps more sinisterly, I think that Trump is raising an army, whether or not he would describe it as such, and whether or not those being involved recognize their own conscription.
An army of zombie zealots to go after anyone who tries to evict him from office...
Should something emerge from the Robert Mueller investigation — an investigation that is continuing unabated even as Harvey rages — that should implicate Trump and pose a threat to the continuation of his tenure, Trump wants to position any attempt to remove him as a political coup.
Even at the risk of causing a new civil war.
Trump is playing an endgame. In the best-case scenario, these die-hards are future customers; in the worst, they are future confederates.
If these people should come to believe — as Trump would have them believe — that establishment systems have unfairly and conspiratorially acted to remove from office their last and only champion — another thing Trump would have them believe — what will they do?
What would Trump’s army do if he were compelled to leave but refused to graciously comply?
It's a haunting question, and although nobody can be sure what might happen, it does lead to another even more disturbing question:
What might the enemies of the U.S. do, if Americans did tear their country apart?
Would they duck and cover? Or would they take advantage of the situation and finish off the wounded giant?
And nobody can answer that one either.
But this is true and cannot be disputed...
We live in a dangerous time. Trump and his zombie army are threatening our fragile future.
It's treason, and they are traitors.
So they must be defeated, by whatever means necessary, before they kill us all...
