MTG's 'national divorce’ comments caused a firestorm this week, Historian Shirley thinks this could be the reality in 20 years
Historian Craig Shirley discusses Biden’s legacy “as the worst President in U.S. history, the crisis of unity in America, and Marjorie Taylor Greene 'national divorce’ comments, and why that may be the reality in 20 years at the rate the US is going. Shirley comments, this has “happened before in our history. And we're foolish to think it won't happen again, it's hard to imagine now, but 20 years from now, 30 years from now is that won't be that hard to imagine, America breaking up into two separate republics. You have New England and New York and New Jersey. And the West Coast is one part a part of one country, and Idaho, and the south and Tennessee, and Ohio, as part of our other country, and there'll be trade agreements, there'll be mutual defense agreements and things like that. But we're, we're completely balkanized. Now, you look at everything, whether the food, or what we watch, what we read, what we listen to, there's nothing that unifies us anymore as a nation.” Saying, that American has nothing like the "space race or manifest destiny or many other things, there's nothing that unifies us, our language, you know, we speak with many different languages now. In every way, we're, we're slowly breaking up as a nation. It's not that we've ever really been unified anyway. But it's getting worse. The only times we're ever really unified, was on the afternoon, December 7, 1941, that we were for a couple of years. And then, and then the afternoon of 911 but that only lasted a couple of months."
