It is undoubtedly true that there is a new civil war going on in America, a war which is basically the same as their old civil war - except this time the South is winning.

Their man is in the White House, their judges are in the Supreme Court, their "values" have been prevailing, way beyond the old geographical South.

Indeed a fabulous photo was taken last week in Ohio by Joshua Bickel, showing a bunch of clearly enraged individuals demanding that the governor open up businesses that have been closed - apparently they see these shutdowns as part of a greater tyranny of the liberal elites, who are determined to destroy the economy of Donald Trump. Which, once he'd made it great again, was the greatest economy in the history of the world.
