    Either admit there is an American side, or there is no side to back.

    Americans really have a short memory of their own history, eh?

    White power in practice in North America has always been a call to get other races in line underneath the current order, which represents the interests of white elites and actively represses the black nation in the US.

    Black power in practice in North America has always been a call for black people to have their own political power and means of self-determination.

    To equate the two in a time where slave labor exists in prisons and the police force is lynching people is to take the side of fascism either intentionally or moronically.

    Quite peaceful here in Revoltistan & its environs.

    There's a word (last one) I don't get to use often.

    Just mirroring what a lot of people are speculating. In my area people are starting to get a little wild although not to the extent that it is in other areas, but its there.

    Civil wars seem to start with dissention, followed by riots, looting, etc. The lunatic fringe comes next such as people looking to cause trouble being bussed in out of state, then later the shooting starts after they run out of rocks to throw.

    Now to see if people are going to escalate things further gangland style with organized skirmishes on a regular basis that will produce casualties requiring military intervention in order to put it down.

    Its been how long this has been going on now?

    I think it all depends on if the military starts coming under fire themselves. That hasn't happened yet but I think its a matter of time until that starts.

    Its just a theory for now, but if civil war does start, I think it might occur when election results are acknowledged and people go ballistic more than they are now.

    I think we get complacent and overconfident in thinking it will never happen here in the US and only in other countries where civil war erupts.

    I do think we are divided enough to consider its a real possibility.

    Trump sees any division and amplifies it for political advantage.

    I doubt that he has a single sincere emotion about anything.

    He is a textbook psychopath.

    All of his ‘allies’ are in fact his flying monkeys.

    And when they don’t like it, they rewrite it.
    Like Rambo.
    Somehow TV and movies are more real than actual history.

    After so many ‘deep state conspiracy’ movies and TV shows, that is now a major shaping force in the Republican Party.

    It’s like a huge Milgram and Zimbardo experiment, to see if ‘entertainment’ can usurp reality.
    And guess what ? It has done just that.

    The name Trump is such a red flag that some people no longer care about context whatsoever. (sigh) I pity the world.

    "Flying monkey" is almost certainly "name-calling"... see Rule 1.

    In any case, President Trump is duly elected. Like it or not, you should consider at least having respect for the office itself... which your guy hopes to hold...
    If not, maybe you'll continue lobbing rotten virtual-tomatoes at the office you've so completely disrespected to the point that any human feels itself superior... for whatever reason.

    Trump has disrespected the office so thoroughly and for so long that he has made a mockery of the US.

    ‘Flying monkey’ is a term which denotes a person used by a psychopath/narcissist for proxy abuse of their victims.
    The flying monkeys are themselves victims, but just don’t know it.

    So every member of the Black LIves Matter movement has to be a marxist, I've got news for you, there are more BLM members than there are Marxists in the whole country, now lets look at how many trained fascist Trump supporters there are out there, the Dept of Homeland Security says the biggest threat to American security right now is right wing terror groups, you should know about them??
