“Look what I did to this metropolis with a number of drums of gasoline and a few bullets.” – The Darkish Knight
Good title for a clock retailer in 2021? Unsure Instances.
- Frequent violence. Organized violence is going on month-to-month.
- Opposing sides develop governing/battle buildings. Simply in case.
- Frequent violence that’s usually deemed by governmental authorities as justified primarily based on ideology.
- Open Struggle.
February was a silent month so far as violence goes. Very chilly climate, mixed with a change in Leftist technique (see beneath) calmed the scenario. As such, I’m backing down for this month to “simply” a 9 out of 10. That’s nonetheless two minutes to midnight.
As I stated final month, the stress will proceed.
I at present put the overall at (that is my finest approximation, since nobody tracks the loss of life toll from rebellion-related violence) holding at 650 out of the 1,000 required for the worldwide civil battle definition.
As shut as we’re to the precipice of battle, watch out. Issues may change at any minute. Keep away from crowds.

Welcome to the most recent concern of the Civil Struggle II Climate Report. These posts are completely different than the opposite posts at Wilder Rich and Clever and encompass smaller segments protecting a number of subjects across the single focus of Civil Struggle 2.0, on the primary or second Monday of each month. I’ve created a web page (LINK) for hyperlinks to the entire previous points.

Slowing The Boil?
So folks *gasp* are capable of speak to one another with out the New York Instances reality checking? Horrible! (notice, most memes this concern are “as discovered” on the ‘web)
The sensible transfer for the Left is to show down the temperature, politically talking. Normally, I believe they’ll take the chance. Turning down the temperature means:
- Holding the leash on Antifa® and BLM©. That’s ongoing. BLM™ and Antifa© served their goal – they put stress on Trump. Already, they’re being set unfastened as “thanks” for his or her service.
- Placing worry into most people in regards to the Proper. This explains the hyperventilating overreaction to the unscheduled January 6 subject journey to Capitol Hill. They’ll use this to drive public opinion, and, after a number of present trials, cease.
- No actual motion on a gun management invoice this session. I believe the Left, whilst blinded by ideology as they’re, realizes that this isn’t a difficulty that has any acceptable compromise within the minds of 80,000,000 folks. “Not one step again, not one gun turned in” is the default place.
- In the meanwhile, simply work on the mundane blocking and tackling of primary authorities, all whereas altering out personnel that don’t meet Leftist ideological rules.
In case your pistol isn’t working, examine the guide beneath “hassle capturing”.
One actual wildcard is the approaching trial of Derek Chauvin for the homicide of George Floyd. There’s a important probability that Chauvin walks away from the trial a free man – his division skilled him (and each different officer) to make use of precisely the strategies he employed. George Floyd was going to die of a drug overdose. These will likely be compelling info to any pretty chosen jury with a reliable and truthful choose.
In fact, it’s 2021. Truthful trials and an neutral justice system simply is likely to be a factor of the previous.
Violence And Censorship Replace
The largest story in censorship this month is the canceling of Dr. Seuss. It’s ironic as a result of Ted Geisel (the actual title of Dr. Seuss) was fairly Leftist. This proves once more that, in time, each historic determine is finally condemned as a result of they don’t meet the wants of the brand new Left.
How is weed the identical because the Koran? Burning both will get you stoned.
Amazon as late as 2012 fought towards banning any e-book. That was then, that is now (LINK, account required, H/T to Vox Day, LINK):
Conservatives are sounding the alarm about an up to date Amazon coverage that bans books the ever-present billion-dollar firm deems offensive or consists of so-called “hate speech.”
Amazon has ramped up its censorship on conservative views in latest weeks. For instance, a preferred documentary on U.S. Supreme Court docket Justice Clarence Thomas was banned from their streaming service this previous week. Earlier than that transfer, the corporate deplatformed conservative Ryan Anderson’s e-book important of gender concept, “When Harry Grew to become Sally: Responding to the Transgender Motion.”
So, throughout Black Historical past Month, they banned a documentary in regards to the second Black Supreme Court docket Justice as a result of . . . on the Proper? And likewise ban a bestselling e-book from a serious writer that simply has a special opinion than 0.3%-0.6% of the inhabitants?
The phrase “Blue Anon”, a time period primarily based on “Q Anon” was on the website City Dictionary™. Anybody can submit a phrase, and the foundations are actually, actually open. However the phrase “Blue Anon” apparently rustled their jimmies, since it’s banned. Right here’s a hyperlink to the story from ZeroHedge® (LINK) the place they present that Google® is censoring searches for Blue Anon.
Oh, and for added irony, right here’s a quote from the founding father of City Dictionary©, Aaron Peckham:
Free speech and the Web go hand in hand, as a result of on-line, anybody with a pc might be heard. The Web equalizes folks like that — regardless of how a lot cash you might have, or how outdated you’re, you possibly can join with an enormous variety of folks. And it’s getting simpler as computer systems grow to be cheaper and simpler to make use of.
City Dictionary is one among an enormous variety of websites the place folks can speak and take into consideration the world. It’s a spot for folks to freely categorical themselves and to write down about their lives by the definitions they put up. Everybody’s a wannabe sociologist, and you may see that come out in City Dictionary. It’s additionally a option to watch our language evolve and to see what’s sizzling in popular culture.
Freedom of speech? Just for sure folks.
Altering The Narrative: Citizen Vs. Terrorist
Trump wished the navy to safe the border from an invasion of unlawful aliens. The Left is utilizing the navy to safe the Capitol from Americans. Guess who the Left thinks the enemy is?
If you happen to’re studying this, in all probability you.
What’s the distinction between an American residence and a terrorist coaching camp? Don’t ask me, I’m simply the drone pilot.
And the Air Drive is fast to leap into that spirit, as documented by Academy Watch (LINK)(h/t Heresolong(LINK)).
Here’s a listing of issues that Air Drive Academy college students can now not do:
- Watching impermissible movies
- Studying impermissible literature
- Visiting web sites selling impermissible ideology
- Membership in an impermissible group
- Making statements sympathizing with impermissible ideologies
- Making social media posts that point out impermissible causes
What’s impermissible? Head on over to the hyperlink and RTWT.
The concept in play is one from the Clinton period – re-brand the residents who like freedom as terrorists. Scare folks with tales of militias, after which run the FBI out for a jog to incite a bombing or assassination plot or two with a mentally-challenged member of the group you wish to tweak, and, presto, on the spot public opinion change.
And this month has been an inflection level in that narrative, and it will likely be used to do away with anybody within the armed forces that doesn’t agree with Leftist ideology. And it will likely be prohibited to learn every other viewpoint.
Up to date Civil Struggle II Index
The Civil Struggle II graphs are an try to measure 4 elements which may make Civil Struggle II extra possible, in actual time. They’re damaged up into Violence, Political Instability, Financial Outlook, and Unlawful Alien Crossings. As every of those is tough to measure, I’ve created for 3 of the 4 metrics some main indicators that result in the index. On unlawful aliens, I’m simply utilizing authorities figures.
Up is extra violent, and to nobody’s shock, the notion of violence dropped lower than I anticipated in February. I believe the propaganda of “residence grown terrorism” was the possible trigger.
Up is extra unstable. Instability dropped a bit. Surprise what heat climate will deliver?
Rates of interest are beginning to rise, which induced this to take a giant dive this month. Inflation early warning?
After a month’s absence, the info is again, however now delayed 60 days. Should have been the Capitol Riots? Regardless, as anticipated, the border is extra energetic.
The Management Vacuum
Helpful Tip: If you happen to’re beginning a revolution on a price range, use a coup-on.
Only a few of the levers of energy are within the arms of the Proper – I’ve established that earlier than. Proper now could be a very tough time for the Proper as a result of there’s a very actual management vacuum.
As a result of nobody trusts profession politicians anymore as a result of Trump was the primary President in a really very long time to combat.
Did he accomplish as a lot as he promised? Effectively, no. The levers of presidency are rusty within the arms of somebody on the Proper. Within the arms of somebody on the Left, nevertheless, the Government Orders have been flashing by so quick that President* Biden had no thought what he was signing, and even admitted that he was confused whereas signing them.
Trump did combat. And Trump did make some non permanent beneficial properties, most of which will likely be erased within the first six months or so. However his largest legacy was that he was a pacesetter. From watching him, I believe Trump cherished the moments when folks have been attacking him greater than every other time. Trump fed upon the controversy.
Now, although, he’s largely silent. The Proper doesn’t seem to have anybody else within the wings, prepared to steer. Trump will likely be a troublesome act to observe. Till that point?
