The “New” Civil War may very well be upon us in this day and age, with the mainstream media stoking the fires. They know full well that this will be the goose that laid the golden egg for them during this death spiral of theirs, and they’ll do anything in their power to bring the ruckus to fruition.
Remember, the media needs conflict to create a compelling product. Without that product, they can’t attract advertisers to pay their salaries and overhead. By agitating the American populace, they are guaranteeing themselves a payday. It’s not unlike an inside trading fiend making mince meat out of your 401K in order to buy his mistress that Lexus she’s been hinting at for her birthday, at least insomuch as both actions are completely wrong.
Meanwhile, the good people of America want nothing but a little peace and prosperity. We’re trained to value the pursuit of happiness, and with Donald Trump sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office, we have the prosperity part down….Now if we could only get the radical left back in line, we might have some peace.
That is precisely why the liberal left is on the minds of Congress this week, as the “Unmasking ANTIFA Act of 2018” comes up for debate.
Top Republican lawmakers have unveiled the “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” a major piece of legislation that would carry a potential 15-year prison sentence for anyone arrested for wearing a mask and engaging in violent behaviors. As noted by The Hill, this is a major piece of legislation that could force the domestic terrorist group to splinter.
The bill was introduced last month by Republican Reps. Dan Donovan, Pete King, Paul Gosar, and Ted Budd. Under this measure, anyone who participates in violent actions while masked as an Antifa terrorist will be thrown in prison for more than a decade. That is something many, many Americans agree with and support.
If signed into law, the bill states that anyone “wearing a mask” or disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” would be hit with a major fine or forced to serve 15 years in prison.
The bill was made available online for the public to peruse:

The liberal left immediately went into meltdown mode on Twitter:
There's now an Unmasking Antifa Act, because chanting "Jews will not replace us" and waving Nazi flags was all OK, but being opposed to that is now punishable by possibly 15 years in prison. This government has some very… interesting priorities.

Well, Jake, maybe don’t riot in the streets every time someone says something that you don’t agree with, and you can go back to hiding your identity, okay?
The "Unmasking Antifa Act" is very concerning and reflects a willful misunderstanding of what "Antifa" is, but I have also been saying that the risks of fascism are not just in the streets.

Speaking of “willful misunderstandings”, Emily, have we got a piece for you.
This is extremely dangerous and could be easily misconstrued to target non-violent protesters! McCarthyism!

Well, Ms. Snowflake, even though you spelled it correctly, your Google search of “McCarthyism” someone still led you astray. Let me fix that for you.
