So a comment that I've read (and saved) some time ago kinda got me thinking for a bit. I'd like to share it with you guys, check it out.
Think about it logically. Considering what we've seen over the last couple years, this prediction might not be too far off. If Drumpf gets reelected, I think that there's a very high chance that shit will escalate a lot more, and things will snowball from there.I've said repeatedly what we can expect, but I hope I'm wrong.
I expect the Democrats to lean into Progressivism and leftism in the 2020 election, and lose. The leftists will respond worse than they did in 2016. The old declaration that "45 million Americans voted for a Nazi" will turn into something akin to: "50-60 million Americans voted in favor of Nazism and fascism. More than before. The American people have welcomed a Nazi regime and have killed us all. He puts Mexican children in concentration camps and gasses families. He's gassing immigrant families. He has ended democracy. There will never be another election. Freedom is dead, and this country deserves to die with all of the Nazi supporters inside of it."
The radical left will be well and truly out of control of the neo-liberal corporatists at that point, but the corporatists won't realize it. They won't understand that they've fully lost control and their institutions are filled to the brim with people who are going to be absolutely manic. Some of the fringe leftists will restart a new "Days of Rage" in order to "Liberate the oppressed people's of America from Neo-Fascism". That's when they will start having full scale street violence and detonating bombs in places that are considered in alliance with "American Neo-Fascism".
Because I've elaborated on this a few times, here's my own copypasta:
There won't be a civil war. Just a few hundred people killed from a leftist bomb attack on a government building (probably an ICE or BP target) and some street violence and rioting. The MSM will literally rationalize the bombing and someone like Don Lemon or Anderson Cooper or some other such talking head with significant normie credibility will announce on their broadcast; something along the lines of:
So, the normies will decide to do something about it. They will riot. They will take this as the MSM explicitly endorsing terrorism against the United States and before the power establishment can react, they'll be throwing molotovs in New York City."The real victims of today's tragic events are [insert unrelated preferred minority identity of the month which suffered no casualties]. Today's attack was spawned from the irresponsible behavior of the Trump administration's [insert wildly exaggerated atrocity claim], and the voters who put him to office were given all the warnings in the world that this could start to happen when oppressed people speak out; yearning to be free. When Americans learn to reject [insert -ism], these attacks will stop. Until then, this is what you wanted, and these attacks will continue until you decide to do something about it."
If all goes well, the corpratists will realize that the regressive rhetoric has backfired and they are about to get hit with blowback they won't survive. The corporatists will then publicly turn 180^^^o on every SJ issue, and the political left will be thrown into short term chaos as the regressives are forced out from the establishment.
If all goes poorly, the MSM and ctrl-left corpratists will overreact badly to this. Meaning, our technocratic tech-giant masters will basically try to silence or bias reporting on the events, the MSM will claim that alt-right nazi terrorists are everywhere, and the American Crystal Nacht is taking place. Because of the aggressive doubling down, you will get street violence between protesters and counter protesters (likely some black bloc people), and we will see things get very hairy. Maybe bombs get thrown at crowds, maybe shootings occur, but for the most part you can expect violent leftist counter-protesters to move to irregular warfare tactics, rather than trying to have pitched battles in the street. The left's new "days of rage" will continue to generate popular blowback against them as the situation gets stupider by the day, until they lose all support and credibility. After that is what I described int he "all goes well" part.
On the home front, this sub and all your favorite political commentators will be banned and purged from the internet. There will be nothing but lies from the media, and Antifa will show up to street protests where they will be met by very angry normies who are absolutely done with their shit. The best thing that any of us can do is stay the fuck down, appeal for a bit of calm, and try and explain to the normies what's been happening for the past 3 decades that they didn't notice.
Either way, a few weeks after the bombing and MSM reaction, the political will of the country will swing right, and you will see actual conservative protests numbering in the many tens of thousands. They'll be a ton of establishment chaos, but you will see a huge right wing crackdown on leftist infected corporations, NGOs, and other such groups because there will be massive normie political will do do that. All the institutional leftists in academia and gov't agencies will go quiet. The regressives will end up being purged and the genuine liberals will have to try and completely re-orient themselves and what is left of the Democratic party as there will be significant disruptions in academia, telecom, the financial industry, and politics.
The next battle of the culture war will be against the right-wing authoritarians who will use this chaos to seize power. With a crippled left-wing and all the normie political capital they can wish for, they might have an easy time with it. Again, there won't be many dead if we are talking about direct terrorist attacks and street violence. Probably under a thousand over the course of a couple years TBH. And that's the bad case.
Now, how likely is it that we have a true civil war in the US where, like our last one, we lose 2% of the population (or 6.5 million people given the current population)? That's actually unlikely because foreign nations would actually try to intervene long before we get to that point. A full scale American Civil War would throw the entire planet into chaos. None of the differing ideological factions across the planet would be okay with it. Literally no one is prepared to allow it, let alone risk it. You can assume that, at a minimum, there would be aggressive political, financial, and economic pressure to prop the US government and economy up. It is more likely that international pressure would force corporatists and businesses on the right and left to pressure a compromise, no matter how distasteful.
Now, OP, you were specifically asking about SJW influence in games and shit. Yes, that will die down *after* all of this takes place. Progressivism and the radical left won't completely end, but they'll have to reform by 2024, and they'll be less aggressive and popular. Corporations won't be so enthralled with them. Just don't expect any progressive leaning institution to go quietly. The only defensive measure an SJW knows is a "scorched earth". They'll burn everything down with them if they can't keep it, so expect to lose some of your dearly beloved franchises, businesses, schools, corporations, employers, ect.
