Why is 2016 starting to feel like 1860, the beginning of our Civil War?
The U.S. neo-liberal Establishment is beginning to behave like the U.S. Confederacy, threatening to walk away from the United States. The DNC/Washington Post camp counts on the disenfranchised for votes, and protests of racism against the pro-business Republican Party, which has just put a businessman in office, as the stock market soars, in the face of a humiliated corporate media globalist elite—which hates Russia.
Russia, the country who stood by us in 1860, warning the “Opium Wars” British Empire (who tacitly supported the Confederacy) not to take military action in favor of the South, which would permanently divide and destroy the United States.
Russia, the country who joined us in fighting the Nazi menace.
Russia, who is fighting ISIS.
Now the once honorable Left is turning Joe McCarthy, untrustworthy CIA agent, and Confederate all at once, in a hate-frenzy against Russia, because their appointed candidate, destroyer of the Middle East and NATO warlord, was rejected by working class Americans suffering under a debt-ridden economy.
Republicans were the good guys in 1860. We have a feeling a great deal of soul searching is going on now (and has been) in the Bernie Sanders, working class, Left.
At least we hope so. We hope the Left is looking at the Washington Post—with its smearing of all conservatives, including the working class, as “white nationalists”—and saying, “Hey, Washington Post. You are going to lose us!”
Now is the time to come together. We certainly know there are elements of war-mongering and Russian-hating in the Republican party, too. Party differences have never seemed less important. Civility has always been important, but it’s really important now. Read history. Read everything you can. Don’t make assumptions. Try and believe the best about everyone. Political differences are not everything. They really are not.
Don’t leave this country. Stay, and make it better!
And let’s not start burning Russian books—or anything else.
As we put the Clintons and the Bushes, behind us, we ask for peace!
