1 in 3 Americans believe civil war is likely in 5 years

BlackLivesMatter riots continue to blaze across America.

Mobs in paroxysms of blind rage and demonic glee topple statues of our Founding Fathers, presidents, and historical figures Confederate or not, which belie the rioters’ ostensible cause of anti-racism.

Tbis is no longer about racism.

What we are witnessing is not just anarchism, it is chaos for chaos’ sake, destruction for the sake of destruction. Like the Taliban in Afghanistan who tore down and defaced Buddhist statues, the rioters today are tearing down historical symbols to obliterate American history itself.

If they could, they would topple the Statue of Liberty.

Amidst all the statue-untoppling, rioting, looting, burning, and occupation of city blocks, mayors and governors do nothing.

Democrats in Congress, especially their leader House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, not only do nothing, they are silent — their silence an unspoken acquiescence and approval. The Republicans are little better.

The only public figure who is vocal in his condemnation of all the anarchy and mayhem is President Trump, but he receives little to no support from his own party.

It is no wonder that the latest Rasmussen poll found that as many as 34% of U.S. likely voters, i.e., one in three, think that civil war is likely sometime in the next five years. 9% believe civil war is “very likely”.

Last year, 31% of Americans thought civil war was likely; the year before, in 2018, it was 11%.

The national phone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted one June 11 and 14, 2020 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is ± 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

Other findings:

  • 40% of Republicans, 38% of nonpartisan or unaffiliated, and only 28% of Democrats see a second war on the horizon. 
  • 39% of all likely voters believe the removal of Confederate symbols, names and monuments throughout the country honoring those who fought in the first civil war will help race relations. 27% disagree and think it will hurt race relations instead; 28% think removing public traces of the Confederacy will have no impact.
  • 37% of likely voters think the current protests over the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers will lead to long-term, meaningful racial change in America. 31% disagree; 32% are not sure.
  • Race: Just 29% of blacks believe the current protests will lead to long-term, meaningful racial change in America, compared to 35% of whites and 48% of other minority voters. Blacks (54%) are far more confident than whites (36%) and other minorities (40%), however, that the removal of Confederate symbols, names and monuments will help race relations.
  • Gender and age: Women and those under 40 are more supportive of the current anti-police protests and the anti-Confederacy drive than men and older voters. Younger voters worry most about another civil war.
  • Political party: 64% of Democrats think getting rid of all traces of the Confederacy will help race relations, a view shared by only 19% of Republicans and 31% of unaffiliated voters.

I think that getting rid of all progressive, socialist democrats and anarchists would seriously help our nation.
And I am unanimous in that… {thank you, Mrs. Slocombe}

Let me be clear, that would include the majority of the press. This Sunday’s shows all made it quite clear there is no longer any attempt at making a separation between the LSM on cable and the “more moderate” MSM on network and OTA TV.
 
It’s all one big attack on Trump, his administration and his supporters. Why? They’re trying to change the outcome of an American Presidential election coming this Fall.
Hmmm… what were they all having conniptions about the past 3 years?

Not just likely, but clearly going to be necessary to put an end to the systemic globalist agenda being played out in our nation. The very Constitution it self will be the obvious next target for these naive puppets of what should be understood by now the actual “beast” of Revelations. The last attempted empire depicted in the image of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, which according to Daniel 2:43, will be the weakest, and all destroyed by a stone cut out with out hands, which is Jesus Christ, in his second coming.   But then that does leave us in a quandary… Read more »

Civil war is already in progress. Indeed, it has been for some time. It’s just one of those inconvenient stories the media refuse to cover.

I got a shipment a little over a week ago. My shotgun should be arriving this week (if I waited a few more days before finally “pulling the trigger” on purchasing one, I’d have been able to get one I really wanted, that has been unavailable for months). Hopefully this one will work out fine.

This is why they’ve been trying to disarm everyone, so that when the mobs of neo-bolsheviks come, we can’t take pot shots at ’em.

“This is no longer about racism.”
 
I am sure getting sick and tired of hearing this bald-faced lie being repeated over and over by these IQ challenged dimwits
on the mainstream, RINO and cuckservative infested ‘fake right’.
 
This is 100 percent all about racism. Except, it is racism and race hatred directed exclusively at White European Americans
and their 100 percent White European Founding Fathers, their White ancestors, their White historical heroes and the history of America and it’s founding.
 
Stop lying about this anti-White racism. Start identifying it for precisely what it is – anti-White hatred and anti-White racism.

Agreed, but good luck getting ANYONE on the left to admit it.   What they don’t get is that just because I’m white DOESN’T mean I have some sort of privilege, or that I’m racist. If I have ANY privilege, it’s that because of my socialization (NOT attacking others verbally or physically, NOT breaking the law then claiming I had a right to, actually TRYING to make life better for others and myself, etc.), I generally DON’T have cops and others tailing me and watching me suspiciously (although it does happen occasionally, and I’ve been mistreated, even wrongly jailed by… Read more »

Destroying all Confederate monuments will not help anyone, certainly not those who participate in the destruction. What it will do is strengthen the resolve of hard core descendants of southern Confederate patriots who, for the last 155 years have cherished the hope that the South will rise again. What a Northerner calls the Civil War, a Southerner calls the War of Northern Aggression. Yes, the abomination of human slavery was a paramount cause of hostilities. Yet, one real issue, that historians today ignore, was the question: Did a state that had entered into the union voluntarily, have the right to… Read more »

Are they going to replace the Confederate monuments with a criminal who held a gun to a pregnant woman’s stomach, who also was a drug dealer and a porn ‘star’? Move over Robert E. Lee, here’s your replacement, George Floyd!

Picture: Am I next (Statue of Liberty)? No. These are lazy anarchists who pick only the low-hanging fruit. They would have to get on a ferry, organize others to do so…then “take over” an island that already has NO life support beyond a few days. Too hard for these sorts who are still concerned with enough toilet paper to get through the quarantine (unless their mayor sends it in to them). No No…Lady Liberty is secure IMO, I’m just worried about other Federal landmarks…..

That’s very informative, Dr. Eowyn. And it actually parallels my personal experience with my black friends, who are very sensitive of the dangerous conditions in race relations, my Republican friends, who view current things very darkly, and the people I know who think the protests are harmless. Will America survive? Has America “sinned away its day of grace?” I think we should should have a constant 2-way conversation with God, watching how the Spirit shapes our thoughts in answer to our questions, and interceding immediately when we know. The other night, after being distressed to see the attempt to establish… Read more »
