I don’t sweat what people post on Medium. Any dunce who can find the enter button their keyboard can publish there. So, two leftists publishing something called “The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War” usually doesn’t warrant much more than an eyeroll. After all, it reads like a parody of leftist groupthink. “California is the bee’s knees. Everything’s golden in the Golden State. That’s how the left is going to win the new civil war.”
The next time you call for bipartisan cooperation in America and long for Republicans and Democrats to work side by side, stop it. Remember the great lesson of California, the harbinger of America’s political future, and realize that today such bipartisan cooperation simply can’t get done.
The Republican Party over the past 40 years has maneuvered itself into a position where they are the bad guys on the wrong side of history. For a long time, they have been able to hide this fact through a sophisticated series of veils, invoking cultural voodoo that fools a large enough number of Americans to stay in the game. However, Donald Trump has laid waste to that sophistication and has given America and the world the raw version of what current conservative politics is all about.
Well, that’s high praise for the most poverty-stricken, crap-covered state in the whole union. Silliness aside, the real news here is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey thinks the op-ed is just the cat’s pajamas.

The usual disclaimers about “retweets don’t equal endorsements” don’t fly when you own the company. Especially a company with yuge issues when it comes to free speech. But only for people of a certain political persuasion (see Twitter Suspends Steven Crowder for Violating ‘Hateful Conduct’ Terms and Steven Crowder Has Repeatedly Reported Hate/Safety Violations to Twitter). Ironically enough, many of you probably saw a similar warning like this one on Saturday night:
Dear @Twitter @TwitterSupport @Jack – I couldn't have been having a nicer, more polite discussion with @michaelianblack and you all drop this into my TL? What's up with that? pic.twitter.com/wiqc5e2Jq1

Bottom line. The Grand Poobah of the Twittersphere endorses a “civil war” against all things non-leftist. Hence, his fascist thought-policing. On the bright side, at least Jack’s no longer pretending to not have a dog in this fight.
