#UScivilwar2Those Fearing A Syria-Type Civil War In The US Need Only To Look At South Africa 25 Years Ago
April 29, 1994, was a warm and sunny day in Port Elizabeth South Africa. History was being made that day. South Africa was having its first all-race election. A quarter of a century ago, I was poor with a low-level government job and living in a humble residence. It was a national holiday. I was at home and not working. Around ten in the morning, a 3-Series BMW pulled up near my residence. A Captain in the South African Army got out of the car and came to my door. He had a pronounced Afrikaans accent but told me in English that he was there to take me to vote in this historic election. (How I got to this point is a story for another blog post.) I went with him and got into his car. Police and the army were deployed in large numbers. They feared the worse. I sensed a warm and a relaxed vibe. I was driven to the polling place. I presented my self and was quickly allowed to vote. All the ballots had pictures of the various candidates as many new voters could not read and write. How I voted is private. The army officer returned me to my residence. That evening there was wild euphoria all over South Africa. Nobody in the world can throw a party like South Africans do (of all races.) It was one huge party after another. One African lady said it all as she was being interviewed on South African Broadcasting Commission: “Finally we will be treated as adults and not children.” I had been part of an incredible moment in history.
There was a lot of fear of widespread election violence and an armed insurrection by the Afrikaans minority. It never materialized. Long before the election, one most-astute South African journalist made the bold prediction that no armed insurrection would come from the Afrikaans population. He made the following comment:
“These people have decent homes and apartments (for the most part.) They eat nice food and drive nice cars. They enjoy their servants and meals out at good restaurants. They are not going to give up their comfortable life to go and fight a hopeless and bloody civil war.”
His prediction was right.
Let us “fast forward” 25 years to today in the USA. There is a lot of fear that if Donald Trump is removed from office or voted out of office in 2020, his right wing and well-armed supporters will start an armed civil war like the one going on in Syria. The statistics are frightening. There are between 300,000,000 and 600,000,000 guns in the US. Despite this massive number of guns, 78 % of the American households do not own a gun. This means that 22% of the US households own all this fire power. One could draw the inference that most of this 22% minority are strong Trump supporters. These people include quite a few billionaires who might fund such an armed insurrection. The Fox News network and other right-wing large media owners (Rupert Murdock, for example) would give it strong support. Foreign countries like Saudi Arabia and even Russia might start to support this rebellion. It is a grim future.
I’m not losing any sleep over this grim possibility. I think back to South Africa 25 years ago and the prophetic words of that one very smart journalist: “They are not going to give up their comfortable lives to participate in a violent civil war they will not win.”

White South Africans should have ethnically cleansed and created a majority White area. Now South Africa is imposing what they promised NEVER to do - mandatory land redistribution - and banning guns at the same time.

Like the Yellow Jackets in Macron's France, the Media works studiously ignores Black South African repression - because it hurts the narrative and acts as foreshadowing of the Leftist endgame.

If you’re walking down the street with anything less than an M72 LAW, you have a victim sign on your back.

Uh...no. There's no fear. Just manufactured fake news BS that fooled you into thinking so. Seems to be working, so expect even more outrageous BS to come from the same 'news sources' in the future.

And this you say after you had just proven that they would win.

If you are going to do crack while posting on Patnet, you have to bring enough to share with ALL of us. Did you know that?

And why doesn’t ohomen still live in South Africa?

Must have been all that prosperity and all those good times that black rule brought the country.

As for armed insurrection in the USA, it really just depends. If Trump is removed for crimes which are 1) heinous enough to disqualify him as our leader, 2)proven or admitted then conservatives will be fine with it.
If Trump loses in 2020, conservatives will grumble like usual and go back into hibernation mode for the next four years of sleepy economic activity.
If Trump is removed from office for fabricated fluff and nonsense bull crap, process “crimes” or the like, conservatives will very loudly call foul and you’ll see serious crippling protests that have way more effect than when blacks rioted over their lives mattering. Conservatives elected the man to do a job, and removing him from office prematurely for political reasons would be an absolute disenfranchisement of our political will. It would be a treasonous coup by the Democrats and patriotic Americans have a responsibility to the country to put down treasonous assholes who want to make America South Africa again.

Ohomen doesn't really know his shit after all. He is making the case for White people in South Africa should have ramped up Aparthid and limited Black's power in office.

I bet he doesn't know a damn thing about what is going in South Africa today, and how Black pols in SA are creating the cartoon version of SA of yesteryear. Where Blacks hack white farmers in little pieces and take their land from them. All perfectly legal and sanctioned by the Government.

Did they teach you any of that in your Wokeinar Ohomen?

Here's a hint sweetie...

Try researching history, specifically 1776.

It only takes 3% of the population to institute a change, there's a 19% reserve...



You Liberals are fucked!

He's a bot, worse than TovBot.

As long as Republicans,their children,grandchildren,family & friends are at risk of massive injury,from high speed,hot lead,bring on ur Right wing civil war.

Continue to advertise ur political stupidity with bumper stickers,rallies,MAGA hats,Republican trash signs at your residences.
Why do fools make themselves targets?
Typing ur retard shit on the internet does not protect u from any of the pissed-off 2nd amendment armed.
Do u ignorant Rep/Con trash think u are immune to the economic effects of ur dream of armed conflict?
U fools!

I'll try harder to win your "fav" position later in the week.

Anyway, 3% of 320 million population is 9 million.

Does anyone want to take a guess what 9 million pissed off ARMED American Patriots can accomplish in the country to institute change?

@ohomen171 - keep posting and ignore the attack gang, the goal is not dialogue - it is confrontation for the sole purpose of self amusement.

Trump will not go quietly. The conservatives might but Trump won't and as such neither will the "base" who envision themselves patriots

yes, he will go while creating a tweetstorm of epic proportions which one can say will not be "going quietly".
If we get a Depression, then bets are off, and we can get violence - but not clear from which part of society. Poor people who have nothing to lose will become violent - middle class prefer to participate in armchair revolutions while screaming from behind computer screen as we can observe on Patnet.

Don't expect a response from him, he's a BOT, like you.

More TDS, there's been NOTHING to support that assertion anywhere.
