Totally worth listening to. And more than a little troubling.— Dan Moulthrop ?? (@danmoulthrop) August 30, 2022
A New Civil War in America? https://t.co/6OYgr7vVNu
I’m happy that Trump voters are coming around to my view on secession. That’s always what Taking Back America really meant. Reversing 1865. Independence from the liberal coastal degenerates.
This was something that I anticipated when I supported him way back in 2016. We would go through this long process of polarization with Trump and his blackpilled supporters would give up on the Union in the end. It is one thing to speculate about it and another to watch it coming true. Patriotism will go somewhere and will find an outlet when it can longer be plausibly channeled into the Empire.
That’s what happened last time too. When Southerners could finally no longer see a future for themselves living under a Black Republican government, they revolted. There was no mass movement. The idea percolated in the South for about thirty years before it was embraced in a fit of rage.
