It’s quite regular for MAGA New Right people to float the idea of there being a National Divorce and, as such, a Second American Civil War. Here’s the latest example of this, found on Twitter:
Walsh’s hot take is sooo dumb because Red States would lose everything if they started a civil war. They have SCOTUS and they are politically ascendant. They’re one stolen presidential election away from controlling all three branches of government and away we go. And yet, here we are, with Walsh making it clear that he wants a civil war.
I really struggle with why the MAGA New Right does this when they have no reason to. The only thing I can think of is their grievances are so deep seated in racism and misogyny that they are extremely impatient and want everything they want NOW, rather than simply being patient.
The great irony will be, of course, when they do, in fact, get everything they want and then they have the audacity to complain when wealthy, well educated and trained Blues begin to flee the country in the millions. Not to mention how they will howl if there’s an actual civil war when Blue States, not Red States leave the Union.
I don’t know what to tell you. Republicans love to wallow in shameless hypocrisy and it’s meaningless and moot to point it out at this point.
