Things just keep getting crazier.
Director Spike Lee issued a dark warning about the upcoming election. Lee warned that President Trump will refuse to leave the White House if the elections are close and it could spark a civil war.
According to Breitbart, Lee stated, “From the very first person that died for this country, Crispus Attucks, in the Boston massacre, the very first person died for this country was a Black man. We have been fighting, putting our lives on the line for every single war for the promise to be recognized as human beings and full citizenship. Here we are in this dreadful year 2020, and Black and brown people, Black and brown trans people, are being shot down like animals. Like it’s all right. And this guy in the White House and what he’s done and what this just level of hate, Anderson, it’s heartbreaking. ”
Lee then said, “I pray to God this guy is out November 3rd. Also, I like to bring this up. I think you talked about this, too. I have — I think there’s going to be shenanigans, some skulduggery if he loses, particularly in a close vote, he might not want to leave. They say law and order. Later for that. Anderson, are we coming a civil war – the next civil war in the United States of America? I ask you that question.”
