Trump supporter fantasizes about conservative gun owners slaughtering soldiers and liberals in a new civil war
Trump supporter Kurt Schlichter, who in the past has been condemned by historians of the Holocaust for saying that any Jewish person who supports Democrats “would have made a fine helper at Auschwitz,” has written up an elaborate fantasy of a new American civil war that involves armed Wisconsin farmers bringing down a column of Abrams tanks.
Writing over at Townhall.com, Schlichter thinks civil war is more likely today than it has been in the past because “the central tenet of the Democrat Party platform is now hatred and contempt for Normal Americans.”
While he still doesn’t think a civil war is likely, he believes that if such a war were to occur, Red America would defeat Blue America easily.
Among other things, he thinks that so-called “Normal Americans” could launch an insurgency campaign against the military similar to the one that Iraqis waged against the United States last decade.
“For example, how do a bunch of hunters in Wisconsin defeat a company of M1A2 Abrams tanks?” he asks. “They ambush the fuel and ammo trucks. Oh, and they wait until the gunner pops the hatch to take a leak and put a .30-06 round in his back from 300 meters. Then they disappear. What do the tanks do then? Go level the nearest town? Great. Now they just moved the needle in favor of the insurgents among the population.”
Later in the piece, he imagines how the forces of Red America could utterly decimate the city of San Francisco in a plan that would involve destroying the city’s water supply.
“San Francisco is a hotbed of treason, but the populace is largely unarmed and is trapped in a confined area,” he writes. “You put a brigade on securing the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, then put a brigade on the San Francisco Peninsula to cut off the I-280 and US-101 corridors. Next you go to the Crystal Springs Dam and cut off the water.”
