President Trump irks members of GOP with ‘Civil War’ tweet

We The People will always be stronger united than we are divided; this much will forever remain true.

That it why it is so despicable to see the mainstream media driving this nation apart, simply to horde more of their viewers’ hard earned money.  This isn’t sport, but they treat it as such, hoping to catch the primo footage of this nation tearing itself in two.

If it bleeds, it leads, remember.

Many of us have felt the oppressive rattle of the far-off sabers.  We can almost smell the conflict on the air.  Those of us with any sense are moving toward our neighbors, toward one another, in order to be assured that the battle lines are drawn between the people and the ruling class, as opposed to having the people line up opposite one another in a Civil War, allowing the ruling class to sit back watch their lobbyist buddies rake in the cash.

We must be careful now.  Maybe more careful than ever, lest we wish to devolve into the ugliness of infra-national conflict.

That’s why a tweet by President Trump has ruffled feathers within the GOP.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) on Sunday criticized President Trump for quoting a pastor saying impeachment could trigger a “Civil War-like fracture” in the country.

I have visited nations ravaged by civil war,” Kinzinger tweeted.

“I have never imagined such a quote to be repeated by a President. This is beyond repugnant.”

So, what exactly caused such a strong statement?

The rare rebuke from a Republican member of Congress came in response to Trump tweeting a quote from Pastor Robert Jeffress on Fox News.

“‘If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal’,” Trump tweeted.

Remember always, compatriots:  We are Americans first, partisans second.
