A Cautionary Note to Antifa and BLM Thugs Contemplating 'Civil War'
“Civil war” has been a term much in use by both the Left and the Right these days. Try a web search on “civil war in America 2020,” and the result is dozens/hundreds of links to commentators speculating about the “coming war between Left and Right and who will ignite the spark” (and a lot of other related themes). The Left claim that “white supremacist and white nationalist militias” will get things started, and the legacy media have produced dozens of articles “investigating” militias and propagating that false narrative. One of the latest investigative reports on Oath Keepers and militias along those lines was published in the November issue of The Atlantic. It conveys the leftwing view of militias: crazy, fringe, gun-toting elements itching to start a civil war, and whom polite society should shun (and then disarm at the very least).
