Waiting for Boogaloo

2 mins read

Winter is coming:

A new poll conducted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service conducted a poll and found a shocking statistic that showed the majority of Americans believed that a second civil war is looming in the near future…
The poll noted that 7 in 10 Americans believe that America is on the verge of a violent war with itself.

America is already in a low-grade conflict with itself. It’s being played out on a few streets via swinging bike locks. But it’s mostly being played out in every newscast, every classroom, and every city hall across the nation. And the war is not between states, but between identities.
America-as-it-was is being systematically dismantled. You can see it with every statue that comes down.  It’s in your face every time third-graders kneel during the national anthem. The new America is anchored by third world colonies being established from Maine to California.
The friction is rising. People can feel it. But they don’t know what to think about it, so they don’t. Yet.
This result is not an accident. And while one can argue over which party is the most to blame, neither party is willing to put an end to it. Neither party is willing to slow immigration, much less reverse it*. Neither party is even willing to say that a man does not become a woman by declaration. Our national government is of no help to the traditional Americans. That means we will ride this road to the end.
We are already in a cultural collapse. We will eventually be in an economic collapse. When those combine we may see Civil War II: Electric Boogaloo.

Indivisible…

But it’s not yet. So long as the welfare checks go out, we will not see Boogaloo. We will merely see the richest poor who ever lived complain ever louder about their oppression. And especially so long as the Social Security checks go out, we will not see Boogaloo. Comfortable people do not rebel against their masters.
It will not be until the something-for-nothing festival ends, and when enough people have nothing left to lose, that we will see Boogaloo. And it won’t be between states this time, though there may be governments on either side or (more likely) on many sides of the conflict.
Right now those in despair are killing themselves – suicide is now the 10th highest cause of death in the US. A few are killing those around them, though “mass shootings” are mostly a press-inspired moral panic. But eventually, when those with nothing to lose start grouping up, and especially when they get covert (or maybe even overt) protection by governments, Boogaloo will move from low grade to medium grade.
I don’t see it becoming an all-out civil war as long as the federal government can still write checks. But the day is coming when it no longer can. The day after that will be a very hard day in America.
