New data indicates America on the verge of civil war, and neither side will back off

By Vicki Batts

Will the United States soon enter a second civil war? Polling data from Georgetown University shows that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe a civil war is coming down the pike — and most people aren’t actually willing to make the changes necessary to stop it. Across the board, Americans are doubling down on their political values and are refusing to compromise on the issues tearing the country apart.

Government officials say that there is a substantial chance that America will enter a civil war within the next 10 or 15 years, meanwhile other experts say the war has already begun. When the war truly begins may be up for debate, but at least one thing is clear: The United States is rife with civil unrest and political animosity. That could easily prove to be a greater threat to our nation than any foreign power.

Polling data collected by Georgetown University‘s Institute of Politics and Public Service indicates that “more than half the likely electorate thinks we are more than 70 percent of the way to being at the edge of civil war.” But that’s not all. It turns out most people now blame the mainstream media and social networking sites for fanning the flames of unrest.

The research was led by two polling groups: The Tarrance Group (Republican) and Lake Research Partners (Democrat). They found that in addition to believing in an imminent civil war, many voters are conflicted about compromise.

Celinda Lake, of Lake Research Partners, says that 86 percent of voters surveyed said that finding common ground should be a goal for politicians — yet 79 percent also said they were tired of leaders who compromised on their values, and instead want someone who stands up to the other side.

While the nation is split on an array of political issues, voters on both sides of the aisle blamed media, politicians, special interests and social networks for the increasingly deep divide between the Right and the Left.

Some 81 percent of survey respondents named special interests and social media as being key contributors to America’s vitriolic political landscape. Politicians and mainstream media outlets like CNN and MSNBC were also named as top influences in America’s unrest.

Last year, State Department official Keith Mines said that there was a 60 percent chance the United States would enter a civil war within the next 10 to 15 years. But many experts believe that the civil war has already started.

It is not a secret that social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have been actively conspiring to suppress conservatives. Their acts of blatant and unjustified censorship have been the subject of much scrutiny.

Facebook has come under fire for similar unceremonious and unwarranted bans and suspensions, and for censoring a wide variety of content, including information on vaccines and advertisements for conservative politicians.

The mainstream media, of course, has long been accused of pushing propaganda and creating their own version of events to supplement their agenda. The Covington Catholic scandal is plenty of proof of that.

Watch: Mainstream media now openly calling for violence against conservatives

It is no surprise then, that many experts believe the civil war has already started — perhaps, beginning with the Left’s targeted attack of prominent conservatives. In addition to silencing them in the social media space, Democrat politicians have been accused of openly plotting to kill their conservative counterparts. Is it any wonder we’re at odds?

    It’s about damn time! God-loving, Patriotic and Constitution-believing Christian Americans should have begun wiping out liberals and liberalism when they reared their ugly heads in the 60’s. You cannot compromise or reason with liberals. Lock and load, just wipe them out!

    What a glorious fundamental transformation improvementation! The Great Leap Forward has finally trickled down to Kulackastan with an older woman getting robbed in broad daylight in the next subdivision sector over.
    Smart criminals know grannies on pensions carry the big bank or they think everyone gets $6000 a month from Uncle Sugar.
    The natives are getting restless and all out walking or upgrading the fencing and masonry but the transformation marches on.
    A pundit much smarter than me has said once a society decides it is no longer worth saving then it collapses. Total corruption also leads to total collapse.
    Good thing our external enemies live in a vacuum and can’t see what is happening. Oh wait.

  4. Independent here siding with the Republicans. Communism is to be stopped at all cost, unleash the dogs of war.

    Not really sure what the feral left is not going to “back off” defending, since they have voluntarily disarmed and packed themselves into easily trapped cities.

    Oh well, if they truly want to enter a feral state we can proceed from there with a clean conscience.

  6. While legacy media and social media have contributed to the problem, the real source of the intractable division in America is due to the fact that the only form of communication liberals are capable of is verbal abuse: name-calling and insults. They don’t know *how* to form rational arguments–they are not capable of it. Tone down the endless, hysterical name-calling, and return to rational, open debate, and the heat can be dialed back down in this country.

    This will not happen, however, because liberals are emotionally addicted to the feeling of superiority they get when they insult people. This was done to the population intentionally by the “education” system and the leftist media. These institutions spent fifty years programming people into being Sanctimony Addicts. Their self-esteem is tied directly to their ability to feel that they are better than others. They are not capable of stopping their hate and abuse. They are irreparably puritanical.

    People don’t like being insulted, it really is as simple as that. That is what is driving the escalation. It’s not policy disagreements that are ramping this up. It is the intentional emotional provocation by the left, designed to bring this country to a crisis point, at which time they hope to have a Communist revolution, and commence with purging undesirables in concentration camps. This is their literal goal. The extermination of all opposition.

    They don’t know how to stop. They’ve been brainwashed with hatred for fifty years; they couldn’t stop if they wanted to. And so this crisis will continue to escalate.

    I will protect my family and my neighborhood, and if that costs me my life, so be it. It’s a shame though: all it would take to defuse this is if there were a handful of grown-ups in positions of authority, who would stand up for commonsense, against this hysteria.

    But there aren’t any. America is utterly doomed.

  7. This very real possibility has not come by chance….it’s been planned.
    The Prince of this world is turning us one against the other to make way for the soon to be revealed Global Government/Religion/Economic empire prior to the coming of Messiah for the first time or second coming.
