    What most fail to realize is we are in a civil war now, it jus hasn't gone kinetic yet.

    The article can't just say 'Trump re-tweeted someone', its gotta say he 'echoed language'... lol.

    This just more claims of 'dogwhistling.' Pure weapons grade balognium.

    Just like the slavey "dog whistle" used in the war between the states in the 1860's when it was really about states rights.

    I think that would be more a red herring... except there likely were some folks fighting for/against slavery in the civil war (not many though).

    A 'dog whistle' is when someone won't say what you want them to say, so you pretend that they must have meant what you wanted them to say 8)

    "....the tweets were incitement. The message has already been received, loud and clear, by at least one right-wing paramilitary group."

    The important point in the paragraph is "incitement".

    ".....And if you thought he embraced political violence before—and he has—just wait. Right-wing domestic terrorists, some of whom cited the president's rhetoric specifically, have already engaged in sporadic acts of violence over the last few months and years."

    The important point here is "political violence".

    In short, the author points out that Trump is inciting his right-wing supporters to political violence in his tweets.

    Keep saying it doesn't make it true. Trump isn't 'inciting' anything. You'd have better luck trying to demonstrate that prog extremists have been enciting violence and civil war by undermining traditional American values, or that globalists have been enciting violence and civil war by weakening our sovereignty and our economy, even though neither of those are demonstrably 'inciting' either.

    If Trump is removed from office for anything but a very popular reason, there very likely will be a civil war over. And it won't be because anyone thinks Trump told them to.
