'Boogaloo' Believers Think a Civil War Is Coming. These Gun Firms Are Openly Marketing to Them. To market their products, ammo makers and gun shops are invoking the memes and rhetoric of a disjointed anti-government ideology blamed for at least one killing spree.

American capitalism at its best: If a Civil War is truly coming to America, of course the gun and ammo companies want to get in early and make a 'killing', as it were.

I see it like this:

1) There are those folks who are interested in maintaining the 'heritage' of the Confederacy through monuments, statues, and the flag, while simultaneously ignoring the racist, oppressive, murderous associations that come along with.

2) There are those folks who are truly bitter that the Confederacy lost and would be more than happy if the Confederacy had a chance at a do-over.

Both groups are reprehensible, IMO.

I'd say the radical left and the radical right make up each maybe 5% or so of the population. Well, the left maybe more or maybe it's just louder.

Hitler had 30%.

Lenin had the peasants, which was just about everybody in Russia at the time.

Really no comparison.

Deplorables are 24%, based on 2016 election turnout.

They lost a civil war once, and they'll lose again.
Their side is easy AF to infiltrate. Look what Sasha Baron Cohen did to the 3%'ers racist rally in Olympia, Wash, about 75 miles from me.

So 24% of America is Nazi is what you are saying? You need the lumps on head examined by a licensed phrenologist.

Also, I have not seen one conservative voice that is not aghast at the idea of a 2nd Civil War. And against what, the laughable woke cultists? Those guys are a joke and everybody knows it. I don't see any real threat to America from within unless you count the oligarchs making a Second Gilded Age.

Close enough.
24% of America voted for a guy who Tweets Mussolini quotes and reads Hitler's speeches.
Same guy who recently Tweeted a video where someone is chanting "White Power."
Same guy who said he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and not lose any supporters.

There is No underlying sectionalism,based on totally different societal orders.

The states themselves are not talking about "legally" separating from the Union.

The first war proved that the states are part of a whole. The whole is made up of states but is also independent of them. THE FED.

The federal system is not what the founders envisioned. It is a monstrosity created since 1913 when the federal reserve was founded.

The currency is what's important now.

The Banks Own Everyone. Even Congress and the Courts,to a lesser degree.

A real civil war would be against the Banks.

If you are truly an elder one would think you would have learned how to avoid fights by now.

I win fights all the time.

By avoiding them or walking away.

Not sure about you but I live in a beautiful place with beautiful people. If I didn't I would move. That's not to say we don't have our share of crazies. But in my experience there are way more good people than bad. There are only so many deplorables. And the good people outnumber them.

The problem now is that the "bad apples" have made the whole barrel rancid.

My advice?

Stay out of the barrel.

Check out their Physical Removal gift shop for more "civil" warfare!

Maybe they are missing a 1% golf club/cetheter - when you've got to Wikileaks waiting for an open hole.

HEY. What happened to American companies and politicians associated with the NAZI? I think they were elected into congress and distributed to various industries and government agencies.. so, if Russia has sent us up the bomb to the house they might be doing America a favor. For some strange reason our American facists really cuddle-up with dictatorship Russians. They are in love with the idea of terrorizing peaceful citizens for no other reason than to destroy a society they no longer belong within. Plua, they are well-funded, provided access to the highest levels of governance by nationalists and have no compunction about murder for money. Buying their t-shirt essentially funds these garbage people. Trump "supporters" are both stupid and scum. Not only deplorable but irrevocable. More than just failcake, but Minnie's special pie.

Regarding Sears Robuck - once I learned they would send scraps of materials to Japanese interment camps instead of the items they ordered I absolutely regard them with contempt. Obviously they specialize in crotchless Conferate uniforms.
