Why I Think Civil War is Inevitable

5/23/18 Yahoo News:
President Donald Trump swiftly defended Tomi Lauren as an “outstanding and respected young woman” after the Fox News contributor said fellow diners at a restaurant pelted her with water and obscenities.
“Everybody is with Tomi Lahren, a truly outstanding and respected young woman!” Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, shortly after Lahren talked about her weekend experience at a Minneapolis restaurant on “Fox and Friends.
This all reminds me of the rage and nastiness that the National Socialists directed towards their political rivals in the late Weimar Republic.  (Shooting members of Congress is another example.)  We are dealing with a profoundly broken class.

Or Mussolini and the Blackshirts in Italy in the previous decade, tying or handcuffing opponents to lampposts and street signs and forcing castor oil down their throats. If it didn't kill them, the effect was tremendously embarrassing.

When you said shooting members of Congress, one instance in the 1930's was Engelbert Dolfuss, the Austrian Prime Minister assassinated in 1934 by Austrian Nazis in "the July Putsch." Also Giacomo Matteotti in Italy in 1924, by the Blackshirts.
