8. All Civil Wars have two phases, the cold phase
where langauge becomes coarsened and you see a division of the two sides... whether this is the US... look at the 1840s and 1850s... or Bosnia, or the Mexican Civil war, (The 1890s were particularly nasty).

The Right went after Clinton in ways that have led to a coarsening of the language and hate. We are seeing the same pattern

We could have stopped this a few years back, but the bush administration didn't want to... nor was capable... they benefited. At this point, I am not sure we can do much except wait for the hot phase to start. I have sneaky suspicion it already did... violence has increased since the inauguration and now we have had the murder of an anti abortion activist. That got MY attention since it does fit the pattern.
