Is America headed for civil war?

Who would have thought that this would even be a question in 2017? Sensationalism, would be the immediate response. But what about a threat, a warning, a prediction  – call it what you will – from a right-wing activist who was part of President President Richard Nixon’s administration that was impeached.

 

Roger Stone, when asked if President Donald Trump faced a possible impeachment, was uncompromising in his view and laid it thick and fast. “Try to impeach him, just try it. You will have a spasm of violence in this country, an insurrection like you’ve never seen. The people will not stand for impeachment. A politician that votes for it would be endangering their own life,” he said.

American actor, comedian and political analyst responded to these threats predicting who the winner of a civil war would be. He reminded the right-wing that they lost before, before pouring water on the veracity and seriousness with which Stone’s threats should be taken.

Meanwhile, back home the Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF’s) bid to try and have President Jacob Zuma impeached will be heard in the Constitutional Court on September 5.
