My, what a magnificent spectacle the fall of a republic truly provides!
In the United States of America, we’re seeing the liberal left lob bottles of urine at police at free speech protests. We’re seeing a terrorist organization being praised by news networks located steps away from the attacks of September 11th. And we’re watching mainstream media fill their programs with outrageous conspiracy theories while ignoring long-elusive foreign policy victories.
Now that the corruption in American government and media is as obvious as that of Brazil, it has become clear that the republic we’ve grown to know and love is not likely to survive the next generation. The battle lines for the next civil war are being drawn, the alliances between various political factions are beginning to solidify, and it’s becoming clear how this war is likely to play out.
Much like prelude to World War I, multiple micro-conflicts are escalating in America. The Trump administration is at war with Obama loyalists, the mainstream media, the old guard of the intelligence agencies, and neoconservative Republicans. Antifa is at war with both the extreme nationalist right and the moderates defending free speech. Black lives matter is at war with the police. The well-funded tech platforms are at war with the alt-tech and the cyber armies of the darkweb. But just as World War I saw multiple alliances forge two solid armies, we will likely see the same here in the United States. All that we’re missing at this point is a hair trigger moment like the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand to set the bullets flying.
One that moment arrives, a likely scenario would play out as follows…
The conservative side — let’s call them the “American Republican Army” — will be led by Trump and will be comprised of his loyalists, the military, most of the police, private militias, and civilians of states with less-restrictive gun laws. The multitude of conservative factions will align with this side. This means the Alt Right, Alt-Lite, moderates, constitutionalists, libertarians, and some neo-cons will set aside their differences and stand shoulder to shoulder. Most of the nation’s centrists will also join this group, as the left is far more radical and far more intolerant. This group will be supported most of the working and middle class of America and nearly all of its veterans.
The opposing side — let’s call them the “Socialists for a Democratic Society” — will be led by George Soros (with Bernie Sanders or Mark Zuckerberg as the face of the movement) and will be comprised of private military contractors (PMCs), Antifa, civilian anarchists, and some traitor state/city military loyal to democrat mayors, senators, and donors. This side will have the mainstream media, celebrities, and social media platforms radicalizing much of the population in Democrat states and large cities and will also include progressives, socialists, radicalized colleges, and some of the more donor-owned neoconservative Republicans. This group will represent the upper class and will unfortunately convince the lower class that it represents them as well.
The war will be short-lived and vicious. The SDS, heavy on cash, will rely on mostly private military contractors and guerrilla tactics. Operations will be similar to that of the Islamic State, with unthinkable acts of violence to which the media will turn a blind eye. The superior training and sheer size of the ARA, however, will be swift and decisive in eliminating this foe. The civilian Antifa and anarchists will be armed, but untrained and undisciplined, and quickly picked off by gun wielding conservative citizens in battles fought in open territory. The untrained SDS soldiers will succeed only in terrorizing civilians to stay loyal to their cause, until their numbers are brutalized. Throughout the conflict, Russia will keep NATO loyal to Trump’s America. Mexico may throw its support behind the Democratic Socialists, but will be partially or fully annexed either way.
It will be urban warfare throughout most of the campaign with New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. being the site of the decisive battles. Once the ARA knocks the mainstream media and social media outlets offline and executes the celebrities and celebrity reporters, the sensitive citizens supporting the Democratic Socialist army will pressure them to surrender. The private contractor armies will eventually betray the men funding them. Riots will be short lived, and the billionaire class will flee the United States in droves.
Trump’s army will emerge victorious, and all of his adversaries will be vanquished. The country will be unified into the first American Empire, and the nation will see a more authoritarian version of the America of the 1950s. For the first time the media will be controlled by the state, as well as the flow of information, and law will be aligned firmly with Christianity.
As a constitutionalist, and as a man of my word, I will continue to support the republic I have pledged my allegiance to. But as an intellectual, a free thinker, and a realist, I recognize that the American republic that we know is not likely to survive for much longer.
