Who Needs Coffee?

January 16th, 2017 by Patrick Henry

When you have warnings of impending civil war to wake you up?

In North Carolina, the Repub governor lost re-election, so the Repub legislature convened a special session to limit powers of the post.

Democrats nationwide howled w/ justified outrage; as we all know, legislators who dislike a governor should flee state to block quorum…

…facilitate occupation of government buildings by mobs, and have allies execute secret raids on homes on the governor’s supporters.

1) cold Civil War
2) targeted political violence, mostly short of murder
3) political violence with murder as the default
4) Civil War II
We’re in Stage 1 now. Stages 2 and 3 are what we’re concerned with: the public getting mobilized. What’d that look like, on Left and Right?

thus David Hines

People forget that the Spanish Civil War didn’t just happen out of the blue. The immediate trigger was quasi-official leftist paramilitaries assassinating Calvo Sotelo, who was the leader of the revolutionary right. And there was much build-up before that.

Arguably Mr. Hines’ own post is itself another omen, however slight.

This is one of those posts where
A) I wish it were wrong
B) It isn’t wrong
C) I have nothing more to add besides the parallels in the Book of Mormon, and the prophecies of prophets.

Those prophecies entail a very thorough destruction, where our government is destroyed and we all have a rough time.

Maybe we need a tag that says that ancient Chinese curse, “May you live in interesting times!”

Truly Twitter is not the forum for this kind of an article.

Considering I see many lefty but LDS bloggers outright endorsing physical violence (mostly in their social media posts) now, it’s going to be interesting….. (remember when Obama was elected and BCC said all the conservatives needed to “behave”?)
