Many of us in the comment sections expressed how refreshing it was to the President offer such a measured and unifying message, without pushing an agenda, or political maneuvering, after eight years of the previous administration using tragic events to dance on the graves or hospital beds of the victims to push a political agenda.
President Trump was praised not only by his supporters and Republicans, but by both sides of the political aise, including Jim Manley, a longtime Democratic spokesman who worked for former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who said "It looks like Trump and his team took this shooting seriously and acted accordingly. His statement was measured and respectful and hit all the right notes when he issued a call for unity."
On the day of the Congressional baseball game, which was played despite the shooting which left multiple members of attendance at that practice game injured, with one Congressional member injured so severely he required surgery and was listed as critical, President Trump once again provided an opening statement calling for unity before issuing the famous words "Lets Play Ball."
IT IS TOO LATE NOW FOR 'UNITY'
While the president did exactly what the President of the United States should have done in calling for "unity," it saddens me to say after observing the hate-filled and vitriolic reactions across the Internet, "it is too late, Mr. President, that ship has sailed."
We have shown here at ANP a small sample of that vitriol we have seen across social media, and we have also documented how the mainstream media has deliberately and with malicious intent, fomented the rage, anger and violent actions taken by today's liberals, which continues to go on unabated on the part of the MSM, so we will not be beating that dead horse in this article. For those that missed those articles, links below:
According to Dictionary.com, Civil War is defined as "a war between political factions or regions within the same country." Merriam Webster defines it as "a war between opposing groups of citizens of the same country." Oxford Dictionary defines it as "A war between citizens of the same country."
The map has been republished above, but as Stefan quotes people like Michael Savage as warning that a civil war is brewing, I look at that map, and the examples shown below of celebrities and college professors still deliberately inciting violence, and I assert the civil war has already started, and only the restraint on the part of patriots, free speech proponents, veterans, etc.... that have not taken to the streets in offense, but are preparing for defense, is what is keeping us from the ramifications of a full out civil war, which would be martial law, as Stefan highlights in his most recent article titled "The Most Gruesome Symptoms' Of The Breakdown Of Society Now Manifesting Are A Huge Warning To Americans."
One side has already begun, and celebrities, the MSM, comics, rappers, actors and others including members of the intelligence community, continue to push the "deep state" agenda, where they want a full-fledged civil war in America.
Brietbart has put together a list of 15 different examples of celebrities "envisioning" aka inciting" violence against President Trump and/or the GOP, all prior to the shooting of GOP congressional members, which includes: Kathy Griffin ‘Beheads’ Trump in Graphic Photo; Madonna – "I’ve thought a lot about blowing up the White House"; Snoop Dogg "Shoots" Trump in the Head in Music Video; Robert De Niro: "I’d Like to Punch Him in the Face"; Joss Whedon: "I Want a Rhino to F*ck Paul Ryan to Death"; Shakespeare in the Park Stabs ‘Trump’ to Death in Performance of ‘Julius Caesar’; David Simon: "Pick Up a G*ddamn Brick" if Trump Fires Robert Mueller; Mickey Rourke Threatens to Beat Trump with Baseball Bat; Actress Lea DeLaria Threatens to "Take Out" Republicans and Independents with Baseball Bat after Trump Win; Marilyn Manson Kills ‘Trump’ in Music Video; Larry Wilmore Jokes About Suffocating Trump with ‘Pillow They Used to Kill Scalia’; Stephen Colbert’s Late Show Puts Stephen Miller’s Head on a Spike.
Hollywood aka Devilwood isn't the only problem, nor the only ones deliberately inciting violence, as we note the recent example of a Fresno State Professor, Lars Maischak, now claiming he fears for his safety (victimhood!)after his "hang Trump" social media plea, which called for Trump to "hang" in order to "save American democracy." "The sooner and the higher, the better." The only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head, the tweets also said. Maischak used hashtags including "#TheResistance" and "#DeathToFascism." (Source)
We also see that a Syracuse University communications professor, urged students to 'finish off' anti-Sharia protesters. Boasting that "we almost have the fascists on the run," Cloud sent a tweet calling for "Syracuse people" to "come down to the federal building to finish them off." (Source)
Showing the ramifications of this type of incitement by college educations and professors, we see The Young Democratic Socialists at the University of Georgia recently "elaborated" on a professor’s tweet which stated House Republicans "should be lined up and shot." (Source)
The YDS apparently quoted Art Institute of Washington professor John Griffin‘s tweet, and then added "This is absolutely outrageous! House Republicans should NOT be shot! They should be guillotined."
The media, which has proven itself to be just a propaganda arm for the deep state, celebrities and members of the Hollywood "lets incite violence" liberals, and socialist and communist educators which have infiltrated our nations school systems are all whipping their "audience" into crazed frenzies of violent actions, which is why I say the calls for "unity" while respected and appreciated, are doomed to fail.
A civil war always starts with violence by one group of citizens against the other, and that has already started with blood in the streets. I reassert that the only thing that stands in the way of a full-out, full-fledged civil war, is the restraint being shown by those that have been targeted by the so-called "resistance."
That restraint has been and continues to be pushed to its very limits.
IS IT TOO LATE TO STOP WHAT IS COMING?
The short answer is no it isn't. It is too late to stop the barreling train of liberal violence against anyone that dares disagree with them, so conservatives have to be prepared to defend themselves should the attacks come to them. With that said, there are actions that can be taken, short of meeting them on the street, where no one would win, because if and when martial law gets declared due to a civil war, the deep state has won and we have all lost.
We have already detailed ways we can go after the media in a previous piece, by hitting their wallet by providing them with no traffic, which resulted in an excellent suggestion by one of our readers, Suz Mc:
Good article Susan. It pumped me up a bit, too much for an old lady first thing in the morning, lol.
Maybe we should all email Matt Drudge and suggest he quit linking to the MSM directly like you said Susan. He is a pretty sensible man and does believe in liberty. I bet if enough of us email him about it, he will consider it. Everyone have a great day :)
As to celebrities, we can look to Kathy Griffin, where the cost of her attempt to promote violence against President Trump caused all her tour dates to be canceled as one event organizer after another canceled her appearances.
The same type of campaign against every single member of Devilwood, listed above, that tries to incite violence, should be undertaken. Those promoting them should be contacted, highlighting their violent rhetoric, those advertising them should be shunned, with emails to those organizations telling them why. Don't buy their movies or go see them in concert. Do not purchase their works at all.
The Julius Caesar play that gleefully murders a Trump look-alike, had sponsors pull out, including Delta Air Lines and Bank of America, but companies like American Express, did not pull their sponsorship. Time to cut up those cards, notify them of why their services will no longer be used.
The point here is we are not helpless in stopping this trainwreck happening right before our very eyes, there are actions we can take to minimize the chances of this bloody war becoming even bloodier and uglier. If everyone just chose one advertiser or company that supports the MSM, or the celebrities or to go through the Professor Watch List of socialist, dangerous professors across the country inciting their students into violence, and collected the contact information for the schools that employ them so everyone can call, or provide a link to submit an online message, a difference could be made.
We have seen companies buckle under a wave of attention, and schools forced to publicly take a stand when they have been spotlighted publicly, so now is the time to kick this type of campaign into high gear.
Political opinions and free speech are guaranteed under our constitution, but incitement of violence should be targeted and shut down, in a non-violent manner. They are not going to stop themselves, so we all have to.
The time has come to fight back against what is coming because the alternative is unacceptable.
