NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

On the latest episode of MSNBC’s “The Cross Connection,” left-leaning reporter Elie Mystal claimed there wouldn’t need to be a hot civil war in this country because the Supreme Court would have already allowed the ” MAGA side” to install his “authoritarianism”. takeover” by legal means.

Mystal’s hyperbolic statements came during a discussion between host Tiffany Cross and MSNBC contributors Jason Johnson and Sarah Kendzior about the likelihood of a civil war in the United States between Republicans and Democrats.

Cross asked, “How likely is a civil war in this country? Because ten years from now, I just wonder if the United States will still be united, because it doesn’t seem so likely, and what should we take into account when we think at the head of all that is going to happen?”

Johnson responded by assuring readers that this Civil War talk was not just about the MSNBC panel and other “hyperbolic” Democrats. He claimed that a civil war is “something possible in the United States”.

MSNBC contributor Elie Mystal says SCOTUS will hand the authoritarian takeover of the United States to the “MAGA side”.


He went on to say, “In 10, 12 years, heck, in four years, if we have a legislature in Georgia, or Iowa, or Nebraska, or something else like that that says, ‘We don’t recognize plus the validity of the Joe Administration Biden. It’s sort of a precursor to civil war.”

“It’s not as far-fetched as people think,” Johnson added.

Kendzior provided a different point, saying that the “criminal elite” of this country wants “a situation similar to what happened to Yugoslavia, the fall of Yugoslavia and the Balkan wars of the 1990s. That is the kind of chaos and exploitation of that chaos that they crave, and so it’s very important that Americans are united.

MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson told MSNBC host Tiffany Cross that a civil war could start in this country in as little as four years.

Kendzior actually urged people to downplay “All that talk about civil war, or secession, or blue havens, or red havens,” saying, “it’s going to hurt every ordinary American citizen. It’s only going to benefit ‘to the criminal elite.’

Mystal had his own unique take, claiming that the Civil War wouldn’t even have to be fought because the Supreme Court would hand the country over to authoritarian conservatives without bloodshed.


“A civil war involves two sides fighting each other. Why will the MAGA side fight when they have already captured the corpse?” Mystal asked, adding, “we understand that when these people take over the courts, they don’t have to fight in the streets.”

“We have a case coming up in the Supreme Court in the next term that will be legalized – that’s what people need to understand about what they’re going to do – everything will be legal. Insurrection, if you will to call, war, the authoritarian takeover of our nation, will be made legal by the Supreme Court.”


Mystal claimed the "MAGA side" will get its authoritarian takeover of the country via the Supreme Court.

The panelist mentioned that the fact that people are not fighting back after the Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which overturned Roe v. Wade, shows that everything is “in place for the court to retroactively give the imprimatur of legitimacy to any civil insurrection or authoritarian takeover of government”.

“They won’t need to fight. They will have everything in place to do so legally,” he concluded.
