I have mixed feelings about this.
In my head, I always knew that it would end like this. I knew that I had traveled far ahead of public opinion. I knew from studying the antebellum era how frustrating it could be to advocate for what seemed like a hopeless cause and how long it would take for White people to “wake up.” I knew that we would go through all the stages of denial, procrastination and false hope. If normies ever “woke up” one day, I knew it wouldn’t be until the last minute when the house is literal burning down around them.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene conducted a poll on her Twitter asking her followers if they feel America should divide into two different nations based on red and blue states.
‘Should America have a national divorce?’ the Republican Georgia congresswoman posed on Monday.
The three options are ‘Yes, by R & D states’, ‘No, stay together’ and ‘Undecided’.
More than 18,500 people have cast a vote as of Tuesday morning and there are still two days remaining in the polling period set out by Greene.
So far, a simple majority of survey respondents – 50.8 per cent – claim they want the country divided. Another 38.7 per cent say they want all U.S. states to stay together and 10.5 per cent say they don’t know.
Greene, a Donald Trump loyalist, has 448,300 followers on her personal Twitter and more than 331,800 on her official congressional account. …”
That’s how secession happened the first time.
The Union was dissolved in a partisan temper tantrum. The John Brown raid on Harper’s Ferry only radicalized Southerners at the very end in 1859-1860. The Democratic Party fell apart over squatter sovereignty. Lincoln was elected as a sectional candidate. The resentments and grievances had steadily built up for decades, but it only crystallized and exploded all at once. Disunion seemed distant and unlikely to happen in 1858. It would have sounded incredible to Americans in 1850.
This is something that most people don’t understand about the Old South. It is not like the secessionists spent decades building up their own institutions and mass membership organizations. Robert Barnwell Rhett, the most outspoken of the Southern fire eaters, was defeated and retired from politics when secession finally came in South Carolina. Secession had fallen on deaf ears for decades. Southerners only became radicalized in a very short period of time. We went out of the Union in a fit of rage.
We’ve now seen two recent polls – one from YouGov and another from UVA’s Center for Politics – which shows over half of Republicans and Trump supporters supporting secession. The number of Republicans who supported secession was around 25% in 2012. 40% of Texans were ready to secede from the Union in 2016. Tens of thousands of people have voted in Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Twitter poll and it is still relatively even after the national media picked up the story and shitlibs began to brigade the results. Secession has definitely entered the mainstream now that Joe Biden is president.
This is what we have always wanted to happen. I feel like I should be more excited about it, but I mainly feel drained and exhausted. I’ve gone through disappointment and disillusionment. It has been a tough five years for the organized movement. Normies are just beginning to open their eyes and entertain ideas and draw conclusions which people like us reached 10 to 20 years ago.
