Microsoft founder Bill Gates warned that political polarization in America could lead to civil war and “bring it all to an end.”
Gates’ comments came while speaking at this year’s Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy. The basis for his argument includes future election controversies.
“I admit that political polarization may bring it all to an end, we’re going to have a hung 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.
“The 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 that I like to make money and kill millions of people with vaccines. It’s wild that sells well.”

“People seek simple solutions [and] the truth is kind of boring sometimes,” he said. “Anybody who’s got good innovations on reducing polarization, getting the truth to be as interesting as the crazy stuff, that would be well worth investing in.”
This is a man who insisted lockdowns during the pandemic were a good and necessary measure to stop the spread. If it were up to him, restrictions would be ongoing even through this current year.

Perhaps he has contributed to the polarization in this country.
Pressed On His Relationship With Jeffrey Epstein
As The Political Insider’s Becky Noble reported last year, Bill Gates had a minor civil war with a reporter over his relationship with convicted sex trafficker and jailhouse suicide victim Jeffrey Epstein.
“You know, I had dinners with him. I regret doing that,” Gates told PBS’s Judy Woodruff. “He had relationships with people he said would give to global health, which is an interest I have. Not nearly enough philanthropy goes in that direction. Those meetings were a mistake.”
Woodruff kept pressing while Gates squirmed his way through a more flowery version of ‘no comment.’

Bill Gates’ comments on civil war come as left-wing politicians intentionally cast Republicans as enemies of the nation.
President Biden vilified “MAGA Republicans” as extremists and a “threat to this country” while Hillary Clinton suggested the “MAGA faction” in this country must be “overcome.”
The speech @POTUS gave last night is one of the most important I’ve seen a president give. We must name the threat our democracy faces–including a MAGA faction that incites violent insurrections 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 unhinged at this point.

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