Commenting on the double standard the political left and the liberal media play -- conservatives are pilloried and leftists are coddled -- former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova explained that America is in a "civil war" now and that things will get much worse before they get better -- "total war."

DiGenova, who also served as special counsel to investigate the Teamsters and as counsel to the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, made his remarks on the Feb. 21 edition of The Laura Ingraham Podcast

During the discussion, Igraham noted how the left and the liberal media work hand-in-hand to spin and cover for wrongdoing on the left and yet endlessly attack the right. For instance, the leftist press constantly refer to President Trump as Hitler, Stalin, a dictator, a Nazi, Mussolini, racist, white supremacist, treasonous, disturbed, demented, bigoted, etc. 

Also, the left has essentially forgotten the shooting of Republican congressmen by a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2017 and they largely ignore the death threats and assassination attempts against President Trump. They downplayed the anti-Semitism of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Mich.) and immediately rushed to defend Jussie Smollett who, as we now know, has been accused of perpetrating a hate crime hoax.

“We are in a civil war in this country," diGenova told Ingraham. 

“There’s two standards of justice, one for Democrats one for Republicans," he said. "The press is all Democrat, all liberal, all progressive, all left. They hate Republicans, they hate Trump."

"So the suggestion that there’s ever going to be civil discourse in this country for the foreseeable future is over," said the former federal prosecutor. "It’s not going to be."

"It’s going to be total war," he said. "And as I say to my friends, I do two things – I vote and I buy guns.”
