Another Civil War?

A friend of mine sent me this video of Ricky Smiley the other day. In the video, he explained how he watched the CNN special on the rise of white supremacy. He basically warns all minorities to arm themselves and prepare for the coming of a second civil war. He alluded to the fact that if Donald Trump loses the 2020 election, Armageddon will break out.

Now, this is not new news to me. I’ve been at gatherings and have heard that we should prepare bunkers, get survival packs, and grow our own food. It’s called survivalism, doomsday preparation, or preppers. A particular sect of people fears that the world is coming to an end. I can see their point to some degree, especially with global warming coupled with mass shootings. One would think to look at the US from the outside, it’s mass hysteria over here. If you do a google search, you will see all kinds of articles about survivalist communities and how to prepare yourself for the ending of the world.

Now I agree that white supremacy is on the rise. Ever since Donald Trump became president, the white nationalists have become embolden and are coming out of the shadows. Exercising a little caution is essential. Let’s not be stupid. Protect yourselves.

But my questions is this, are we going too far? Are we inciting fear when it’s not necessary to do so? I don’t know, but for the first time in my life, I am actually contemplating getting a gun. Y’all let me know what you think, get a weapon, arm yourselves preparing for Armageddon or relax this will all blow over?

Until Next time, Enjoy the journey!
