Who is winning America's Second Civil War?
Conflict, strife, and social upheaval have been on the rise over the past eight years. It germinated in the 1960s, and expanded gradually to embrace the immigration issue - particularly after the 1986 "amnesty to end all amnesties" for illegal aliens. (There have since been six more amnesties).
Americans are just beginning to understand the scale of the assault on American history, culture, and values. It's massive. In fact, it can be referred to as America's Second Civil War.
In the January 23, 2016 World Net Daily article, America's 2nd Civil War, Dennis Prager writes:
Liberalism – which was anti-left, pro-American and deeply committed to the Judeo-Christian foundations of America; and which regarded the melting pot as the American ideal, fought for free speech for its opponents, regarded Western civilization as the greatest moral and artistic human achievement and viewed the celebration of racial identity as racism – is now affirmed almost exclusively on the right and among a handful of people who don’t call themselves conservative.
The left, however, is opposed to every one of those core principles of liberalism.
Like the left in every other country, the left in America essentially sees America as a racist, xenophobic, colonialist, imperialist, warmongering, money-worshiping, moronically religious nation.
Just as in Western Europe, the left in America seeks to erase America’s Judeo-Christian foundations. The melting pot is regarded as nothing more than an anti-black, anti-Muslim, anti-Hispanic meme. The left suppresses free speech wherever possible for those who oppose it, labeling all non-left speech “hate speech.” To cite only one example, if you think Shakespeare is the greatest playwright or Bach is the greatest composer, you are a proponent of dead white European males and therefore racist.
As a point of clarification, what Prager refers to as the left can be called progressive liberalism, the progressive left, or the Marxist left. It's nothing like the left most Americans grew up with.
The progressive left has initiated and ferociously waged an ongoing war against traditional America. They have fought longer and harder than mild-mannered conservatives. Egged on by globalist corporate interests, the war has escalated dramatically over the past eight years.
Prager points out this is not merely the manifestation of political differences, asking:
How are those of us who oppose left-wing nihilism – there is no other word for an ideology that holds Western civilization and America’s core values in contempt – supposed to unite with “educators” who instruct elementary school teachers to cease calling their students “boys” and “girls” because that implies gender identity? With English departments that don’t require reading Shakespeare in order to receive a degree in English? With those who regard virtually every war America has fought as imperialist and immoral?
The progressive left was soundly defeated in the 2016 presidential election. The left lost a majority in the House and Senate and as well as two-thirds of gubanatorial elections.
Prager observes that:
... this is likely the last chance [traditional] liberals, conservatives and the right have to defeat the American left. But it will not happen until these groups understand that we are fighting for the survival of America no less than the Union troops were in the First Civil War.
