Powder Keg: 61% say US ‘on verge of civil war,’ 52% already prepping


Paul Bedard  10/1/2020

 

A majority of Americans are bracing for the possibility of a politically-fired civil war, and more than half are already stockpiling food and other essential items to survive and fight back, according to a new survey shared with Secrets.

 

In the survey, 61% said that the U.S is nearing a second civil war, including a shocking 41% who “strongly agree” with that assessment.

 

And 52%, so convinced that it is just around the corner -- or after Election Day -- that they are putting away food and other essentials, an historic expansion of the prepper movement that has been brewing for years, now driven by fear and coronavirus shortages.

 

“This is the single most frightening poll result I’ve ever been associated with,” said Rich Thau, president of Engagious, one of the three firms -- along with the Sports and Leisure Research Group and ROKK Solutions -- that conducted the “Back-to-Normal” survey.

 

Secrets has been following the series of surveys that have been sizing up the state of the nation and business since the coronavirus crisis hit. Of all the studies so far, this is the first to raise majority concerns about a potential war.

 

It comes as the 2020 presidential race is getting hot, with both sides ginning up support from radicals and clashes a regular thing. It also comes as the Black Lives Matter movement continues to conduct heated protests to the point of riots in some cities.

 

During the Tuesday presidential debate, President Trump, while agreeing to decry racially-motivated groups, told the so-called Proud Boys, a militarized group that supports him, to "stand back and stand by." The president also repeated his concerns that Democrats are scheming to steal the election.

 

Predictably, it’s the political extremes who are most ready for war, with 52% very liberal, 52% very conservative, 32% somewhat liberal, 34% moderate and 35% somewhat conservative who believe the statement “I’m concerned that the U.S. could be on the verge of another civil war.”

 

The virus is also playing a big role in the nation’s anxiety. A majority of those who are stockpiling food and essentials are doing so because of concerns the coronavirus will spike, as many in government are predicting.

 

Already in several cities, including in the Washington suburbs, major stores including Sam’s Club and Costco, are reinstituting limits on items such as canned foods, bottled water and paper goods.

 

“We have been conducting surveys of consumers and employees since the beginning of April in order to help industries make strategic decisions in the month ahead. The current data shows an alarming trend that that extreme political polarization of our country has a majority of Americans concerned that our country could be a powder keg ready to explode into a Civil War,” said Ron Bonjean, a partner at ROKK Solutions.

I don't see a lot of viable combatants out there in the general public.  I see a lot of people that eat donuts and cannot put down their cell phone.

170 million stockpiles of food around?

 

Who believes this?

I could except I would leave out the COVID virus part.  When the wife told me about the terrorist attacks on 9/11 my first thoughts were “what took them so long”.  I had been expecting such an attack for years just didn’t have the who, how, when and where facts.  I’ve been expecting the fall of civilization as we know it ever since.  The actions of the Democrats over the last 4 years has only fueled my expectations for the worse.  If we thought the left pulled out all the stops in 2016 to ensure the election of Hillary, all l can say is “brother, we ain’t seen nothing yet”.  No, I don’t consider myself to be one of those wack-a-doodle preppers, never-the-less, there’s nothing wrong with being prepared for the worse.

It's hard to predict when and where it will cook off.

 

I was thinking maybe Virginia.

 

But then some angry folks in Michigan probably beat VA to the punch.  :shaky:

 

The FBI can't arrest everyone.  :bucktooth:

 

Folks out in the OR and WA are getting tired of the non-stop nonsense.

 

Another horde of people are threatening in to invade from Guatemala. Texas?  Arizona? 

 

I wonder when the remaining Chinese embassies will be overrun and filthy chi-coms murdered.

 

Maybe CNN in Atlanta will burn to the ground, for doing exactly what they accuse Trump of doing. 

 

The Democratic Socialists of America have a big bullseye painted on them.

 

And so on.

History lesson to be learned here:

From WikiP (if you can bother) The Dems and Reps switched.....

 

Southern Democrats 

are members of the U.S. Democratic Party who reside in the Southern United States.

In the 19th century, Southern Democrats were whites in the South who believed in Jacksonian democracy. In the 1850s they defended slavery in the United States, and promoted its expansion into the West against northern Free Soil opposition. The United States presidential election of 1860 formalized the split in the Democratic Party and brought about the American Civil War. Stephen Douglas was the candidate for the Northern Democratic Party, and John C. Breckinridge represented the Southern Democratic Party, Abraham Lincoln, who opposed slavery was the Republican Party candidate. [1] After Reconstruction ended in the late 1870s so-called redeemers controlled all the Southern states and disenfranchised blacks (who were Republicans). The "Solid South" gave nearly all its electoral votes to Democrats in presidential elections. Republicans seldom were elected to office outside some Appalachian mountain districts and a few heavily German-American counties of Texas.

The monopoly that the Democratic Party held over most of the South first showed major signs of breaking apart in 1948, when many white Southern Democrats, upset by the policies of desegregation enacted during the administration of Democratic President Harry Truman, created the States Rights Democratic Party, which nominated South Carolina Governor Strom Thurmond for President. The "Dixiecrats" won most of the deep South (where Truman was not on the ballot). The new party collapsed after the election, while Thurmond became a Republican in the 1960s. Following the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, which were signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson, although a southern Democrat himself, led to heavy opposition from both Southern Democrats and Southern Republicans. Subsequent to the passage of civil rights legislation, many white southerners switched to the Republican Party at the national level. Many scholars argue that Southern whites shifted to the Republican Party due to racial conservatism.[2][3][4] Many continued to vote for Democrats at the state and local levels, especially before the Republican Revolution of 1994.

Between 2000 and 2010, Republicans gained a solid advantage over Democrats at all levels of politics in most Southern states, with the last few holdout counties and states switching over in the years leading up to and following Barack Obama's election in 2008.

It's a 'story' ... kinda like 'Alice in Wonderland'. 

Notice how the riots subsided when Kyle shot people? Americans on both sides have turned into pansies. After a day or two of people laying in the streets riddled with bullets, the so called 'Civil War' would be over.

Very well, very few Southerners actually owned a slave.

 Southerners coming to realization fighting against Our Country to keep rich slaves owners property is the core of I's gots mines Democrat ideology.
