The Rights' New Dog Whistle Term

They've got a new term they are using to try to hang around our necks like an albatross. It is called a "Cold Civil War". It is another attempt to repackage Pat Buchanan's culture war and blame us for it. Spread the word.

2. The gang and their wars...

I swear, they are like little 7 year old boys who never grew up...still hanging out in the club house--no girls allowed--and plotting stupid maneuvers throughout the neighborhood.  Always a bully and a snot-nosed kid, along with an instigator and a variety of other followers.  We have the bully = Trump; the snot-nosed kid = Ryan and the instigator = McConnell.

4. Why I Posted This.

I think this needs to be taken seriously. I have found the term being promoted by John Derbyshire and Angelo Codevilla on at least three sites. I believe that the two both wrote for the national review. I think the reasoning they profess is that the term means that their are two sets of Americans who can't stand each other based on issues such as religion, guns, culture and immigration, and that Progressives and Liberals are the what they call the elites who reign over the average people in a sort of conflict that is culturally and regionally like the American Civil War, but contained from actual violence like the Cold War. I think they also mean to portray us as the enemy of their freedom. It looks very much like this is a term and a set of accusations that the right may use against us in the upcoming two elections. And watch for it to come out of the mouth of Donald Trump, as the term "political correctness" spread like wildfire and was swoon used as a catch all accusation against us when George H.W. Bush used it in a commencement speech. We need to be ready to act and respond in an effective manner. If anybody knows anybody who has any leadership role in which to send this information up the line, please do. I strongly believe that this is not the last we have heard of this from the right. If we catch them quick, we may even be able to boomerang this and use it against them. But I fear our time is short.
