We’ve seen an important (though far from decisive) battle in the slow-motion civil war the nation is undergoing: The blue states want to secede not from America but from Americanism. They reject the American republic of God-fearing individuals in favor of the European ideal, which has only been government by aristocracy: either an aristocracy of birth or, nowadays, of ruling know-it-alls — of post-religious, globalist intellectuals (a.k.a. PORGIs). As I’ve said before — many others have too — you can’t graduate class after class after class of left-indoctrinated ignoramuses without paying the price. Last night was a down payment.But we’ve won civil wars and preserved the Union before. We’ll do it again — if we face up to the fact that we need to replace our schools and colleges now; the grace period has lasted a generation, but it’s over. I know we can do it and I’m pretty sure we will do it. Americanism is too strong and brilliant and young to die.
To recap, the day after the election, National Review's David Gelernter is not only declaring that the majority of Americans have seceded from "real" America, he is openly advocating a civil war to get that part of America back.
Forget pretending to be civil while sharpening the long knives. These guys are now openly vowing they will destroy the country in order to save it, and we're all collateral damage.
Welcome to Obama's second term. In honor, a new tag: The Second Civil War.
