Writers detail shocking civil war resulting from 'Tea Party militia' taking over South Carolina town - and the U.S. military's response
They prophesize that unrest will result from the the economy's failure to improve from 'Great Recession'
Commenters quick to fire back at the writers, as one brands Col Benson a 'traitor in waiting'
A duo of writers have ignited an uproar with their foretelling of an insurrection that will plunge America into a new civil war, courtesy of a 'Tea Party militia.'
Written in disturbing detail by a retired colonel and the academic, the article describes events leading up to a full-blown civil war on American soil, like the one that is currently gripping Syria.
The article also describes the plan of the American military to quash the rebellion orchestrated by its own citizens.
The Small Wars Journal article, entitled 'Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A "Vision" of the Future,' was written by retired U.S. Army Col Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber.
So when does such a civil war begin? According to Benson and Weber, the seeds of their vision have already been planted.
They write that the Great Recession will have lasted longer than anyone could know, sparking massive unemployment and political unrest.
Benson and Weber write that despite a change in control of the White House and Congress in 2012, the economys downward smile will continue, with the percentage of jobless Americans near double digits.
But the authors say it wont be until 2016 when things start to take a bad turn.
The write: 'In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the "tea party" movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest.'(continued)

I’m in. Where do I report?
Good grief. What a couple of idiots. A drone and an M1 Abrams and game over. Add to that all those that jut talk tough and, well . . . these two are ridiculous.
Excepting the fact that blacks are murdering whites regularly because of their skin color, the author is spot on.
>>>”A drone and an M1 Abrams and game over.”<<<
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
The country’s downward smile? I don’t think I’ve ever heard it put quite that way.
economy’s downward smile
Not going to happen.
The people in Darlington, SC love their twinkies too much.
They’re drumming up tea party hate for the 2014 mid terms. Won’t matter. We will all just quietly go to the polls and kick their collective a$$es. I don’t need a party name to do that.
Civil war, my behind!
Ummmmm. There was no change in control of the white house or congress in 2012.
When, exactly, was the scenario written?
I’m not sure I can wait that long
Skeered ya’, din’t I?
I firmly believe that those in power on the left want this to happen.
Tea Party maintaining/gaining traction and getting under their collective skin, again. Time to (try to) knock the TP back down.
We all live on a Gov't reservation.
"My suspicion is that the Iranians recognize they shouldnt draw a lesson that we havent struck [Syria] to think we wont strike Iran," Obama said in an interview aired on ABCs "This Week."
Meanwhile Obama and the aging 1960s campus radical, spoiled brats and their ideological issue like Obama continue to hollow out the U.S. military..
based on the award-winning 1992 "The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012" I submit "The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2016."
The rules-of-engagement and PC restrictions caused virtual disasters in Iraq and Afghanistan. Then years of Obama Administration hollowing-out included less and less emphasis on combat. The military "perceived themselves as policemen, relief workers, educators, builders, health care providers, politicians--everything but war-fighters."
Nuclear-armed Iran reacted with open aggression in late 2015. American military personnel thought to be the best prepared were cobbled together into combat units and rushed to the area.
Ill-equipped, lacking skills lost to years of virtually no training, and facing "a military which had not forgotten what militaries were supposed to do or what war is really all about" the ill-equipped and poorly trained U.S. troops were forced to withdraw.
Fortunately because of the Obama hollowing-out and the resultant money-saving consolidation of the armed forces, military power was concentrated in fewer hands than ever before. The rest was easy . . . .
This isn’t a prediction; it’s a scenario for an exercise.
I think the Liberals would prefer to stand with Islamic terrorists rather than conservative Americans. They certainly consider conservatives to be a greater threat.
Just turn off the electrical grid and watch the "rebels" march into Obamacamps for the promise of a hot shower and a meal.
I wonder whose idea it was to publish an inflammatory story about it now.
First, the Mayor of SC said that Assad was going to nuke SC.
Now, these writers say the next Civil War will start in SC.
Is there something in SC that we don’t know about ?
They’re drumming up hate because they DO FEAR just that outcome. Not doing anything is capitulation. I believe that there are two more chances to regain control and as we the people to throw out any of these unconstitutional laws. After that I’m definitely all in.
Perhaps they should lay off the spicy food before bedtime.
I believe this is what the libs want, and the Dems have been planning for this. Marshal law, and putting conservatives in “re-education camps.” I’ve seen stories of dozens of concentration style camps having been built in remote areas (goes back to the ‘90’s) but with no obvious occupants. I don’t see a violent revolution happening myself. I do see the possibility of a number of states seceding if things continue as they are.
Of interest CW2 ping. I began reading this article thinking YOU might have written the novel referred herein.
Of course you didn’t. But it might interest you.
“....motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement ...”
You mean the goal of getting big government out of my life? And the problem is what?
Dumbasses, Michigan is the land of militias.
We don’t call it Militiagan for nothin.
It’s “Martial” (military) Law, not “Marshal” Law.
Oh yeah...they’ve been itching for it to happen. They have tried to light a number of fuses to no avail. From union thugs beating up tea party patriots at rallies to blaming the Tea Party for all the gun violence, to how Tea Party Reps. in the House are being verbally abused today...
They want us to react soooooo badly and yet we continue to do the one thing that they can’t stop...speak softly and carry a big stick.
They have failed to agitate us to violence, but they are agitating the useful idiots on the left and that is the fuse once lit will lead to a full propagandized explosion of violence & civil war.
Now if we were smart enough...this instigation to violence by the democrats is illegal.
Army Col Kevin Benson and Jennifer Weber doesn’t like Nascar or Nascar fans? Doesn’t think much of the South? heh
I live 10 miles from Darlington. I figure it’d be the blacks uprising before the t-party.
‘Travis’ has written extensively about this report (about a year ago IIRC).
August of 2012 article, little slow on the uptake eh? Kind of like the civil wart fought by the tea party in Colorado’s recall elections that booted two (2) liberal socialist from office?
Stay tuned, if the tea party does not start a civil war, I am sure this administration can promote a civil war some where, some place, with someone who is conservative or not in the United States and then blame the tea party prior to the up coming 2014 mid term elections.
DC navy shipyard maybe?
It will be started by the Occupy idiots, not the Tea Party
“When, exactly, was the scenario written? “
Look at the date, August 13, 2012.
This is stupid. Everyone knows the “recession” ended in 2009 and we’re in a grass shoots recovery led by our scary starin-down-Putin hero with even more massive pectorals than Schwarzaneger.
WHY would those crazy homo-hatin’ extremist racist TEA partiers do anything so crazy as stand up for the Constitution, a moldy oldy from 200+ years ago. No one reads cursive anymore anyway.
< /kill sarcasm tag with extreme predjudice >
“Marshal Law” would be a great screen name for a forum moderator, though. :-)
Tea Partiers can barely get out of their electric scooters.
Many of the angry young men today aren't conservatives. And given demographics and lack of outreach by conservatives, they never will be.
Typical leftists drivel. We are in much greater danger of insurrection from anarchists on the left than we are from the Tea Party.
And yes, the Democrats were in charge of a corrupt government.
Returning vets, people who support the Constitution, Christians etc., etc. are the ones who are going to be targeted as enemies of the State. First you have to plant such ideas in the fertile minds of the easily manipulated. If people read it in books or see it in movies and hear popular people from the entertainment industry suggest such things, they’ll start parroting the b.s. like they were under hypnosis.
You want to look for ‘clues’ on the upcoming civil war, start looking at the unprovoked ‘hate whitey’ crimes.
The >900,000 bikers ride to DC this past 9-11 is yet another clue.
