Microsoft founder Bill Gates has warned that political polarization in America could lead to civil war and “end everything”.
Gates’ comments came during a speech at this year’s Forbes 400 philanthropy summit. The basis of his argument includes future election controversies.
“I admit that political polarization can end everything, we are going to have a stalled election and a civil war”, he predicted.
Gates also suggested that conspiracy theories involving vaccines and misinformation and his own role in their distribution are a contributing factor to the animosity felt across the country.
“Polarization and lack of trust is a problem,” he said. “One of the best-selling books last year was a book by Robert Kennedy, saying I like making money and killing millions of people with vaccines. It’s savagery that sells well.

“People are looking for simple solutions [and] the truth is sometimes boring,” he said. “Anyone who has good innovations to reduce polarization, to make the truth as interesting as the crazy stuff, that would be worth the investment.”
He was a man who insisted that lockdowns during the pandemic were a good and necessary measure to stop the spread. If it were up to him, the restrictions would be ongoing even in the current year.

Pressed on his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein
As The political insider Becky Noble reported last year that Bill Gates had a minor civil war with a reporter over his relationship with convicted sex trafficker and prison suicide victim Jeffrey Epstein.
“You know, I had dinner with him. I regret doing this,” Gates told Judy Woodruff of PBS. “He had relationships with people he thought would give to global health, which interests me. Not enough philanthropy goes in this direction. These meetings were a mistake.
Woodruff continued pressing as Gates squirmed through a more flowery version of “no comment.”

Bill Gates’ Civil War comments come as leftist politicians intentionally cast Republicans as enemies of the nation.
President Biden has vilified ‘MAGA Republicans’ as extremists and a ‘threat to this country’ while Hillary Clinton has suggested that the ‘MAGA faction’ in this country needs to be ‘overcome’.
The speech @POTUS given last night is one of the most important that I have seen a president give. We must name the threat facing our democracy – including a MAGA faction that incites violent insurgencies and rejects the rule of law – in order to overcome it together. pic.twitter.com/7Qiy4vmTh8

More recently, Clinton compared supporters of former President Donald Trump to Nazis.
Hillary Clinton directly compares Trump to Hitler and Republicans to Nazis.
As if she couldn’t be more unbalanced at this point.

If there is a civil war in America as Bill Gates suggests, it is certainly fueled by the Democrats and their minions in the media.
