    Default Talk of ‘Civil War,’ Ignited by Mar-a-Lago Search, Is Flaring Online

    Posts on Twitter that mentioned “civil war” had soared nearly 3,000 percent in just a few hours as Mr. Trump’s supporters blasted the action as a provocation. Similar spikes followed, including on Facebook, Reddit, Telegram, Parler, Gab and Truth Social, Mr. Trump’s social media platform. Mentions of the phrase more than doubled on radio programs and podcasts, as measured by Critical Mention, a media-tracking firm.

    Posts mentioning “civil war” jumped again a few weeks later, after President Biden branded Mr. Trump and “MAGA Republicans” a threat to “the very foundations of our republic” in a speech on democracy in Philadelphia.

    Now experts are bracing for renewed discussions of civil war, as the Nov. 8 midterm elections approach and political talk grows more urgent and heated.

    Civil War. An oxymoron for the ages.

    If the "war" does come (and well it might) it will NOT be civil.

    Too bad we have come to this.

    FAULT: Trump and his enablers/supporters.
    ON HIS WORST DAY, JOE BIDEN IS A BETTER PRESIDENT THAN TRUMP WAS ON HIS BEST DAY!

    NY Times? Who even reads that bullshit anymore other than low IQ dipshits who voted for Biden. You owe ALL Americans an apology.

    The civil war is coming on November 8th when Republicans take back the House and the Senate. It will continue into 2024 when Republicans take back the White House. People as stupid as Democrats should be kept as far from political power as possible.

    It will take many years to repair the damage this Presidency has done to our Republic.

    More shrill lie filled hysterics. You seem quite full of it.

    I'm good with it. Sure, a lot of innocent people will die, but mostly it'll be the WSE terrorists, neo-nazi pedophiles and other scumbags who will be left bleeding out in the streets.

    Consider it akin to a beach clean-up event except instead of picking up bottles, cans and condoms, Americans would be removing the most worthless pieces of shit in America.
