Skip to comments.Horowitz: The Civil War Started When Democrats Seceded From the Union in 2016

Horowitz: Were in a war. My book Blitz shows were already in a civil war. What the Democrats did in 2016 is what you call treason. They seceded from the Union for the second time, the first being with the election of Abraham Lincoln, which led to the shooting war. The reason we dont have two armies in the field is that the federal government is too powerful so theres nobody outside the government who can organize a military force that wouldnt be crushed immediately. So the civil war is over who controls the executive. ...
Five days after the 2016 election there was a meeting at the Mandarin Oriental, which is a very posh hotel in Washington, D.C. It was organized by George Soros and there were something like 400 people there including Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Soros, Bernie Sanders, the Occupy Wall Street communists, the whole range of the Left. What they did is form what they called a resistance to Trumpyou remember, 70 Democrats boycotted the inauguration. This is sedition.
The whole American system is based on compromise. Thats why we have an Electoral College, which, of course, the Democrats want to abolish. ... What the founders feared most was that there would be a party that would get a majority and use it to crush everybody who voted against it. The founders were very smart people.
The second thing with the Democrats
the reason theres a civil war is that its a racist party. Identity politics is racism. When you know in advance that youre going to pick a black woman to be vice president you obviously picked them on the basis on their race and gender and its all over for the American way. ...

I learned on Glenn Beck that the Civil War did not start with Fort Sumter. It had been building for at least a decade prior to that. Many of the Southern states were locked down prior to this and there were small acts of violence and assassinations during this period. Fort Sumter was the final destroy before a declaration of war was made.
The Confederates did not want to overthrow the government. They wanted government by consent, which meant separation from the federal alliance.
This is very different from the 2016 attempted coup. The coup conspirators wanted the opposite of government by consent.
And this year they outdid themselves when they chose a black woman for vice president who isn’t black.
Wrong , they have a military force, called antifa-deepstate- china waiting at the gates.
More equal than others... Hitler did it to make enslaved gemrans think they were favored over jews, Chinese do it with the Uyhghurs , and democrats keep doing it from one race to the other who is more liable to play that game.
I am starting to think the reason so many amongst asians or jews vote democrat is because of their own socialist racist elements in them getting baited for favored thinking treatment.
After Trump won in 2016, I guess they all feared they would be exposed. We can only imagine the theft, murder, bribery, extortion, blackmail, and other crimes they had committed prior that caused them to launch civil war.
"Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God."
And it's not just Democrats in D.C. The civil war combatants and allies include Big Tech, most corporations (who Trump gave trillions in tax cuts), Hollywood, 95% of all media, professional sports, academia, and almost all international bodies (UN, WHO, World Bank, IMF, EU, etc.)
Extremely good and valid point.
While slavery was a horrible evil, I believe that the founding documents of our nation allowed and permitted the South to leave the Union.
The civil war victory by the north forever altered the Constitutional balance that held the behemoth Federal government in check vis a vis the states. After the war, Fedzilla was on a path towards complete dominance.
Additionally, from John Adams to Henry Clay to Abraham Lincoln the primary advocates for crony capitalism were politicians and business people in the Northern states. All were advocates of “public improvements” projects (federal subsidies which were arguably unconstitutional) funded largely by taxes collected from the Southern states. My ratio’s may be off a bit, but prior to the Civil War approximately 75% of federal taxes were collected from Southern states while approximately 75% of federal spending was in Northern states. This arrangement allowed Northern crony capitalists to profit from slavery, while permitting a plausible deniability of guilt attached to slavery.
“The Confederates did not want to overthrow the government”
The Confederates also did not want to take over the North. They wanted out. This is more than that civil war, it’s a Communist revolution and takeover attempt.
I view the D’rats’ 2016+ political actions as a coup attempt against our President, not as secession.
I view the progressives’ & D’rats’ current social actions as sedition.
I view both actions as treason, to be punished by hanging by the neck until dead.
Yes, there is no “secession” at work here when these losers are demanding money from others (regardless of where they live). The Seattle “CHOP” zone ran out of food very quickly; those propaganda photos showing their paltry “gardening” produced nothing.
Yes, except I think they committed treason and effectively seceded when they declared Sanctury States / Sanctury Cities.
seceded when they declared Sanctury States / Sanctury Cities.//
That was/is my opinion.
“The Confederates did not want to overthrow the government. They wanted government by consent, which meant separation from the federal alliance.”
A difference without a practical solution, then or now.
Separation then or now equals dissolution of the union in some sense.
It also results in changes between the two (or more) parts, the part that remain(ed) part of the whole and the part that separated. It also INSURES geopolitical changes in the relationships of the two to other states in the world. That inherently adds to protective concerns for their own interests in those relationships, inherently also trying to advance relationships beneficial to themselves which may possibly be disadvantageous to the the other party. Other states would be picking and choosing which of the two parties that want best relations with, and that would also inherently include support for one side or the other. It would have brought the role of Europeans back into the affairs of the states.
No. Dissolution/separation is inherently fraught with issues that, in my view, would have eventually led to conflict between the two, conflict that in my view the north would have won anyway.
Except not any consent of the enslaved.
