Who’s Going to Win the Cold Civil War?

A kind of slow-motion decoupling has been in progress since the middle of 2016, or whenever what Carl Bernstein called the “Cold Civil War” started.  Formerly sacrosanct red lines that maintained the truce are being crossed all the time now.  A letter from Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division asks “44 states to provide extensive information on how they keep their voter rolls up-to-date” in a strike at what the administration perceives as ghost voters.  State Department layoffs under Tillerson and probes into Post Office use of employee time to campaign for Hillary suggest blows to the heart of the Democratic public sector base. Reports that “Trump’s lawyers and aides are scouring the professional and political backgrounds of investigators hired by the special counsel, looking for conflicts of interest they could use to discredit the investigation — or even build a case to fire Mr. Mueller or get some members of his team recused” mean the administration is prepared to fight fire with fire.

    I would like to note that “The Cold Civil War” has been a topic written about at Vdare.com for some years – most notably by Steve Sailer and John Derbyshire.

    One of their major themes is that it’s the “good whites” (progressives etc) that have arrogated to themselves moral superiority and thus have class superiority over “bad whites” (those who believe in a traditional society and maintaining the demographic profile of the US) and these two groups are at war.

    The “good whites” are always in search of new, ever more idiotic causes and ideas to force on the “bad whites” hence ‘transgender rights” and faggots and feminists cozying up to mo’s cult of death to show their superiority.

    And of course this is worldwide now but I can’t remember where it spread from originally.

    Oh, and by the way I’m not trying to put words in the mentioned authors mouths – they can speak for themselves – read their stuff.

    That depends on whether you think it stays cold

    You count Trump out at your peril, especially as this descends into trench warfare.
