The Never-Ending Threat of Civil War

E.M. Cadwaladr writes in American Thinker:
We and the Left are now two nations within one country. This is undeniable. We are now so different that we cannot even agree on what a country is, or on the merits of a country having a border. ...

The people who are eager for a civil war are fools. They don't understand the catastrophe they're begging for. But the people who believe that a civil war is now a real possibility are neither fools nor wild-eyed alarmists. Moreover, the people who believe that, grim though the prospect may be, war might be the lesser of two evils have a daily strengthening case. The Left has shown itself to be dedicated to the destruction of Western civilization itself. We have not been faced with such an existential threat since European armies threw the Turks back from Vienna in 1529. The fascists of the mid–2oth century, for all their loathsome policies, were not the kind of threat to the fabric of our society that we face now. Bad as they were, they did not seek the destruction of Europeans as a people, or of European culture as a living, breathing thing. Progressivism does. What could be more worthy of, if you will forgive the word, "resistance"?

We conservatives have let this ideological cancer metastasize for far too long for its excision to be simple or painless. For too long, we have been patient with outrages we should have fought to reverse. We have let our opponents secede incrementally from us for decades. We have been tolerant and patient.
I think that he is right that hoping for war is foolish, but so is standing by and watching the Left seek the destruction of Western Civilization.

For example, many on the Left now seek open borders. So do many Libertarians. These are attempts to destroy the USA as a sovereign nation. Some are even arguing before the US Supreme Court that it is illegal for the US Census to ask whether someone is a citizen.

Sam Harris re-broadcasts an episode on what Islamists want. They want to kill you for not being a Moslem. You can read the ISIS explanation yourself. And yet there are leftists who want to bring such people into the USA.

Importing Moslems serves no purpose except to advance leftist plans for the destruction of Western Civilization.
