The Left's Neverland
American Thinker ^ | 8/23/19 | Deana Chadwell

Posted on 08/23/2019 7:13:56 AM PDT by JohnEBoy

I hear more and more frequently concerns about an impending civil war. It is certain that something momentous is taking place; the signs are all around us, but I’m not at all sure that the something will turn out to be two sides of the same country warring over principles, like the Civil War, which was mainly about slavery and states’ rights. Now, we’re up to our nose-piercings in politically polarizing problems and the leftist contingent of the country doesn’t even like America anymore. If we come to open warfare, it will be as two separate nations battling it out. Over what? Not over policies, not over territory, not even over moral issues. We will be fighting over reality.

This is a very good article, making clear the differences between the (far) left and normal "deplorables". The overall point is, the far left has left all pretense of reality behind, and they want everyone to join them in "Neverland".

It’s more than just “they want” everyone to join them in their delusions, they demand we join them or else!

Could we eventually do a “velvet” divorce, as happened when Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia?

I could foresee a Liberal States of America, consisting of the northeast and Pacific Coast states. The geographic disconnect could cause these two major liberal areas to split from the rest of America and each other.

The big unanswered question, would be, what happens to conservative areas within liberal states, and conservative people in those states, if they don’t want to be part of the new Liberal States of America.

The left, which I used to see as misguided but mostly benign,

Cancerous when elected.

The left keeps wishing for a civil war.

They have no idea how bad it will be.

Secession is by far the better option IMO. Some conservative areas of blue states and some blue islands in red states will need to be accounted for. For example outside of NYC, the rest of NY is probably a red state. Miami and Chicago and Occupied Northern Virginia along with the Williamette Valley, coastal California, Las Vegas, and The Puget Sound should be hived off of their states.

Everybody would be much happier.

They mean to force everyone to embrace their delusions.

which was mainly about slavery...

No it wasn't. It was about who was going to control the economic output of the South, Before the War, Lincoln bent over backwards to protect Southern slavery. What he would not do was to let them run their own affairs and control their own trade.

The wealthy elite in New York (his backers) had Southern trade rigged to flow through their pockets through laws passed by their majority coalition in Congress, and so they wanted to keep that sweet sweet slavery money flowing into New York. (And Washington DC)

And *THAT* is what the war was really about.

“And it is a different country altogether, which is why we can no longer discuss things and come to compromises; you can’t compromise with traitors”

Not so much traitors as deniers of reality.

What we suffer from is a severe case of Affluenza. Only in an uber wealthy country can one afford to indulge in the type of delusions we are currently afflicted with.

But I hear the footsteps of “The God’s Of The Copybook Headings”. Sooner than later reality will get it’s revenge.

You are correct, sir, about the economic reasons for the Civil War, and who instigated it!

As time goes on, truth emerges. The truth is not taught in our common cultural history. It never was, and looking at history it seems it never will be.

However, men like you are digging into history, and little by little pieces are brought out. The truth is, all our traitors are driven by their economic greed and lust. Look at those that want unlimited illegal immigration. It is a quick fix for their imagined excessive labor costs.

Quite frankly, I believe we must re-write history, bringing in facts that people like you have dug out of the mess that our intellectual and educational elites have worked for centuries to bury.

Well played, sir.

Well thank you. I just learned of this stuff about three years ago, and I was not looking for it. I just kept finding out bits and pieces that did not make any sense, such as Lincoln supporting the Corwin Amendment that would have made slavery virtually permanent.

Yes, history is very different from what we have been told, and what I have realized is that the same "Elite" New York/Washington DC establishment "deep state" that Trump is fighting now, are the same people who have been ruling the country since the 1860s.

Same geographical part of the country. Same arrogant wealthy class. Same influence peddlers corrupting our government now.

The left’s Neverland will quickly become totaltarian. The utter contempt and outright hatred of us “deplorables” would God forbid they ever gain control, lead to internment camps and reeducation centers no different than the gulags or Nazi concentration camps. To implement the Neverland regime the Second Amendment must be nullified as well as the First Amendment. I would expect a violent insurrection if these leftists ever gain control
