Kurt Schlichter is a rabid Trump supporter. In the past, the man has been condemned by Holocaust historians for condemning Jews who support Democrats. Apparently, he also writes fan fiction. He recently wrote an in-depth fantasy of a new Civil War in America where farmers somehow take out tanks.
We aren’t joking.
Townhall is a very right-leaning site. There you can read about “the unhinged Left” and how “they” are coming to take your guns. Whoever they are. You can also read Schlichter’s fantasy about how the Right would win a second Civil War. Because it’s totally normal to fantasize about your country going to war with itself.
He thinks the chances of a new Civil War is more likely now than ever because “the central tenet of the Democrat Party platform is now hatred and contempt for Normal Americans.” He uses the word “normal” as though it’s a race of people. That’s how not normal he is.
In his fantasy, it isn’t even the conservatives who are waging this war, but the Democrats. He writes,
Democrats, who think history began when Obama was elected, don’t understand the dangerous game they are playing when they talk about how they want to impose their brown shirt vision upon red America. The keyboard commandos of the left seek to hand wave away the massive strategic challenge of imposing control by force upon a well-armed, decentralized citizenry occupying the vast majority of the territory, so they babble about drones and tanks as counterinsurgency trump cards. But there are no trump cards in war. There are men, with rifles, standing on patches of dirt, killing the people trying to push them off. That’s the ugly reality of war.
I think most of us know on some level what war is really about. None of the Democrats I know want another civil war. Schlichter doesn’t think that there will be another Civil War, but he sure has put a lot of thought into one. He wrote about strategy:
San Francisco is a hotbed of treason, but the populace is largely unarmed and is trapped in a confined area. You put a brigade on securing the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, then put a brigade on the San Francisco Peninsula to cut off the I-280 and US-101 corridors. Next you go to the Crystal Springs Dam and cut off the water.
As far as I know, there is no war upon “Normal” Americans. Normal is relative. Relatively, Schlichter is far from the normal you and I have come to know. The fact that there are men like this supporting Trump says a lot about our current political climate. In this case, climate change is real and it is frightening.
