That is the provocative hypothesis put forward by Danial Greenfield at Sultan Knish. On its face, it sounds hyperbolic, but Greenfield makes a rather sober case. You should read it all, but this will give you some of the flavor:
How do civil wars happen?
Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can’t settle the question through elections because they don’t even agree that elections are how you decide who’s in charge.
That’s the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

Candace Owens – a black conservative – takes a page from President Donald Trump’s playbook when encountering unhinged liberals: she is fearless.
Her career, at the tender age of 28, has accelerated to the point of making the Nancy Pelosi’s and Chuck Schumer’s very nervous, given her growing national popularity to ignite ideological warfare among leftist-indoctrinated blacks, including Millennials on college campuses.

Franklin Bynum was unchallenged and won the Democratic nomination to become a criminal court judge in Houston. Mr. Bynum is an avowed socialist and he’s not alone in that conservative state. At least 16 other socialists appeared on the ballot in primary races across Texas.
Socialism has oozed out of college classrooms and into the ballot box. “Yes, I’m running as a socialist,” Mr. Bynum told the New York Times. “I’m a far-left candidate. What I’m trying to do is be a Democrat who actually stands for something, and tells people, ‘Here’s how we are going to materially improve conditions in your life.’”
Wanna be Judge Bynum is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), which is growing by leaps and bounds after Trump’s election, even in conservative states.
The NYT reports, “D.S.A.’s membership has increased from about 5,000 to 35,000 nationwide. The number of local groups has grown from 40 to 181, including 10 in Texas. Houston’s once-dormant chapter now has nearly 300 members.”
To my Millennial friends who favor Socialism: beware of what you are asking for. UB
May 5th marks the 200th Anniversary of Karl Marx’s birth, and in spite of inspiring a wide variety of political movements that have caused countless human rights disasters, Marx continues to be an object of admiration among many intellectuals and artists. One such example can be seen in Raoul Peck’s new film The Young Karl Marx which portrays Marx is a principled radical with a laudable thirst for justice.
Fortunately for Marx the man and his reputation, he never personally gained control of the machinery of any state. Thus, the dirty work of actually implementing the necessary “dictatorship of the proletariat” was left up to others. And those who attempted to bring Marxism into the light of practical reality, quickly found that applied Marxism brings impoverishment and the destruction of human freedom.

“Miguel Diaz-Canel was officially named as the new leader of Cuba on Thursday,” proclaimed CNN. This came as a surprise to observers around the world, particularly American millennials who never got word that Miguel Diaz-Canel was even running.
What were his poll numbers with blue-collar workers, women, and the gay and transgender community? What policies was he advancing to improve the Cuban economy? How did he stack up against political rivals in other parties?
A new poll of registered voters shows support for the Democrat Party is starting to wane amongst a rather shocking segment of the population – millennials.
The group who typically fits in with liberal thought, or the lack thereof, is not only losing their enthusiasm for the party, but they’re starting to recognize the Republican Party as better stewards of the economy.
What an absolute disaster for Democrats who simply assume that the midterm elections, six months away, are there’s for the taking.
According to a new Reuters/Ipsos national poll of over 16,000 registered voters between the coveted age bracket of 18 to 34, support for the Democrat Party over the last two years has dropped 9 points, down to 46 percent overall.
The enthusiasm gap “presents a potential problem for Democrats who have come to count on millennials as a core constituency,” Reuters writes, “and will need all the loyalty they can get to achieve a net gain of 23 seats to capture control of the U.S. House of Representatives in November.”
How could this possibly be with Democrats tagging the trendy new, uber-cool slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages?”
That alone should draw in the young ones.
The worst part for liberals is that these young folks are enjoying the concept of paying less in taxes and getting bonuses for their work that Democrats openly refer to as “crumbs.”
One voter cited in the Reuters article, a 34-year-old African American, almost sheepishly admitted that Republicans are doing more for him than that other party.
“It sounds strange to me to say this about the Republicans, but they’re helping with even the small things,” he said. “They’re taking fewer taxes out of my paycheck. I notice that.”
People notice more money in their paychecks. They notice ‘crumbs.’
In January, Philippe Reines, a former top adviser to Hillary Clinton, worried that millennials would vote Republican once they saw their taxes go down.
He worried they would become content once they saw more money in their pockets.
“I hope millennials don’t fall into a lull,” Reines said. “God knows how many of them will see their taxes go down and base it just on that …”
Perhaps now would be a good time to remind those very same millennials that Democrats have vowed to take those tax cuts away from them, to raise their taxes and decrease the amount of take-home pay they receive.
“It may have to be a ‘replace and repeal,’” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said of the GOP tax bill. “Replace them (Republicans) and repeal the bill.”
Is that something you really want?
President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday to start pulling the federal government out of K-12 education, following through on a campaign promise to return school control to state and local officials.
The order dubbed the “Education Federalism Executive Order,” will launch a 300-day review of Obama-era regulations and guidance for school districts and directs Education Secretary Betsy DeVos to modify or repeal measures she deems an overreach by the federal government.

Millennials, those born between 1982 and 2004, are the largest age cohort in American history, and according to a recent poll, most of them (44%) prefer socialism to capitalism (42%). An earlier 2015 poll found an even larger number of Millennials (53%) with a “favorable opinion” of socialism. Inference: America is in trouble.
Maybe Donald Trump can stem the tide for another four or even eight years, but support for socialism will continue to mount as long as Millennials remain ignorant of what socialism really is. The greatest danger to this country comes from the fact that so many Millennials don’t understand politics and economics.
A confession: I’m an American millennial.
Popular lore holds that I enjoy lazy, booze-filled brunches; binge-watching Netflix with my significant other; the faux healthful benefits of working at a standing desk; and taking long sits on the couch staring at a glowing rectangle in my palm.
And if you believe the latest headlines, I’m also part of the biggest generation of marks since the 17th-century Dutch bought up tulips like gold-flecked holy water. “Millennials lost money to scams more often than their grandparents,” USA Today reported. “Millennials more likely than seniors to fall for online scams”, says CBS.
