With the death of Supreme Court justice and liberal hero, Ruth Bader Ginsburg comes the possibility of election violence beginning early. Brace for a reaction, as President Donald Trump has insisted on filling Ginsburg’s seat while the left threatens to “burn it down” if he does.
The division is too immense to break through at this point. Far too many are firmly rooted in the left vs. right paradigm lie and it’s going to manifest unless we open our eyes. Unless a lot of people realize what’s going on and realize how divided we’ve allowed ourselves to become, this political violence could escalate to devastating explosive events.
Almost immediately after the news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death, some verified Twitter users threatened arson and apparent violence in order to block Senate Republicans from replacing her before the elections.
“If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire f—–g thing down,” author Reza Aslan tweeted, according to Fox News.
If they even TRY to replace RBG we burn the entire fucking thing down.

He later responded to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s vow to hold a vote on President Trump’s nominee. “Over our dead bodies, literally,” he tweeted. Author Aaron Gouveia similarly blasted McConnell’s statement, saying: “F–k no. Burn it all down.”
Ginsburg’s death seems to have only ramped up the rhetoric and forced the divide between the left and the right further apart.
Fuck no. Burn it all down. https://t.co/hsjqeVLgBn

Please be prepared, because neither side will be backing down. We could very well experience massive violence even before the already promised election violence. This is not meant to be anything other than a warning. If you take this as fear-mongering, I suggest you harness that fear and brace yourself while continuing to prepare. Be able to protect yourself and your family especially if you live in or near a big city.
The mainstream media is telegraphing that this violence is coming. It seems to be pushed forward in time, though, because of the death of Ginsburg.
