Simple answer: No.

More interesting answer: It wouldn't be a "war"; it would be a "Rumble of Unusual Size". The "leftist" fascist tribe(s) would commit suicide, due to ineffectual-ness and in-fighting.

How do you create this civil war: Elect an actual fascist (Hillary, Obama, Sanders -ish), instead of a neutral populist capitalist.

What would be the effect of this civil war: A "tired" West that would sue for peace with the "opponent", and be slowly then quickly nibbled to death by the Global Chinese behemoth.

Aloha! :) <shaka!>

There's nothing civil about a Civil War:

Generally, when we think of civil war, we think red states fighting against blue states. However, the fault line that's grown isn't quite that simple. It's much more of an Urban-rural divide, with the suburbs the most divided.

If we had a civil war, it'd look a lot more like the fighting in Syria, Yemen, Yugoslavia, etc. than the Union-Confederacy conflict. It's unlikely we'd have two sides fighting each other; we'd see several different factions, including possible succession efforts by states like California. Having half a dozen different groups, sometimes cooperating, sometimes fighting. . . it'd be far less straightforward than our historical Civil War.

Nah,.. we'd all have muskets and those de rigueur three-pointed Hector Heathcote hats.

But, yeah, it would be a "War of a Thousand Thousand Factions",.. where the average militia size would be about 30ish.
