#里茲螞蟻批判性思考寫作專欄 #Alex專欄 #外師每週精選閱讀
What do you get when you take a huge population of right-wing conspiracy theorists, allow them to arm themselves to the teeth, then have the US president lend them a façade of legitimacy by allowing them to patrol the streets? The answer might just be a self-fulfilling prophecy from one of the many of the deranged conspiracy theories that the militias of the USA are now pushing: a descent into civil war. The Boogaloo Bois, the Utah Citizens’ Alarm, the Proud Boys, neo-Nazis and other right-wing extremists are obviously not taking the attempts at making progressive changes to American society well, and Donald Trump is openly supportive of their reactionary movements.
There are now fears that should Trump not be re-elected, the various right-wing fringe groups will refuse to accept the result. Whether that means they will march non-violently like the millions who protested against the result when Trump won the last election remains to be seen. But if you mix guns with extremists, the results are rarely peaceful. Widespread gun ownership, confused concepts of rights and responsibilities, and the nation in turmoil from the utter failure to control or even contain the spread of a pandemic could just be the perfect storm to bring about what the bible for many of these groups, “The Turner Diaries”, predicts.
