We Are in a Civil War

Back on March 20, Bonnie Parsley published a fantastic, plain-spoken piece at Political Pistachio, entitled “How do civil wars happen?

“There’s no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

“This isn’t dissent. It’s not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they’re the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don’t win, what you want is a dictatorship.

“Your very own dictatorship.

“The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it’s inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can’t scratch his own back without his say so, that’s the civil war.

“Have no doubt, we’re in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.”

Yes, it is clear that we are in a civil war. There has already been some shooting, but the real hot war is yet to start. I’m beginning to lose doubt that the hot war is forthcoming. It doesn’t have to be this way, but the totalitarian left is every day requiring it. They want a destructive revolution more than they want anything. And I fear they’re going to get it.
