This Colonel did the math and it’s BRUTAL!
By Cillian Zeal
Two world wars and a protracted conflict in Vietnam, and the American Civil War still remains the bloodiest war in our country’s history. An estimated 620,000 men lost their lives in places with names like Antietam, Shiloh, Gettysburg, and Vicksburg — all supposedly in the name of ending the great evil that was slavery.
Back then, of course, the Democrats treated Dixie as if it were their fiefdom. When they lost control of the White House in 1860, they were livid. This time they hadn’t lost it to the tepid elitist Whig Party but the upstart Republicans who had agitated for an end to slavery.
By the time Abraham Lincoln took office in March of 1861, seven Southern states had seceded, and four more would eventually join the Confederate States of America.
Four years later, the South laid in tatters, slavery as an institution had been destroyed, and the secession had been a failure. Lesson learned, right?
Well, it may be a century and a half later, but the Democrats haven’t learned their lesson well enough. In fact, after Trump’s election, there were plenty of liberals talking about a civil war.
“In California, the leftist government is practically firing on Fort Sumter. And nationally, these aspiring fascists are especially eager to disarm ‘Normal’ Americans. Doing so would be an object lesson in who’s the boss, as well as solving that frustrating problem of the ‘Normals’ having the ability to resist.”
“Do I think there will be a civil war? No, but there could be,” Schlichter wrote. ”Civil war is unlikely, but never underestimate Democrat stupidity and hatred. The Schlichter family learned that lesson a century and a half ago, the last time the Democrats decided to try to impose their hatred of basic human rights on the rest of the country when an army of Democrats burned our family hometown.
