Let me be clear — I still don’t think we’re going to have a civil war in the United States. The most logical situation this fall is due to the Durham Investigation, ratfucking of the postal service and direct hacking by the Russians, Trump is going to “win” on Election Night.
Any political violence will be simply Far Right weirdos getting a little ahead of themselves. Trump will lulz that, though. By about February 2021, Trump’s consolidation of power will be complete and we won’t even know that Little Green Men are snatching people off the street and pushing them out of windows.
A series of things would have to go wrong for us to find ourselves in a dueling POTUS scenario. But let’s say that happened.
If the original Civil War is any indication, there will be a number of panicked attempts to keep the country together. Constitutional Amendments will be proposed. There will be threats of succession as barging tools. Even a military-brokered “Unity Government” proposal.
Things will begin to grow demonstrably worse when FOX News and other conservative media outlets are physically driven out of NYC by Blue mobs. Their staff will be forced to decamp to a safe Red State, maybe, Tennessee or Mississippi? This will enrage Trump and Red State people and things will only escalate.
As the final bolts begin to pop off civil society, it would make sense that a number of well-known liberals will be murdered in cold blood by bloodthirsty MAGA-Qanon people. This will happen because Red States are still taking the situation far more seriously than Blue States.
One crucial issue is which POTUS does the U.S. Military side with? Barr will have laid the legal groundwork for Trump to “legally” be president. As such, that will be the final moment of truth.
There’s a big difference between the U.S. Military putting down a Red State rebellion and them putting down a Blue State rebellion.
Regardless, good luck and God speed.
