Why were you quoting eclimial in that? Also, you know he wasn't talking about actual Pocahontas, right? He was talking about Elizabeth Warren who claims to be part Native. And he said "got", not "gotten".
Cuz I’m too lazy to do the format shit myself but forget to delete his name XD.

And…my bad. I do my homework in a public setting where there’s a tv, and I was really focused on my homework, but then out the cut I hear Donald saying that and I was like “what XD”. But I had no clue about the context since I wasn’t paying attention (doin hw)

“How is it possible to have a civil war?”

Do you think any country could have a Civil war?
George Carlin

Civil ... courteous and polite.

synonyms: polite, courteous, well mannered, gentlemanly, chivalrous, gallant, ladylike, gracious, respectful.
Wikipedia
Eclimial, in the context of civil war, civil refers to civilians

Civilian: A person not in the armed services or the police force.

Civil war: A war between citizens of the same country.

In other words, a civil war is a war between or among irregular forces.
Nobody has the intention to build a wall.

Thank you Kiho, I acknowledge the word civil has many interpretations and connotations, however in this case Carlin, who was a brilliant comedian, was using a funny play on words. He is using irony to simply tell a joke.

So for further explanation and to simplify, let me put it another way. A civil person, in this context, is a polite, courteous, well mannered person ok?

So herein lies the rub, is a civil war polite?, no!

Is any war (In the context of Carlin's definition of civility) civilized?, No!

Please don't take it so seriously, it's just fun and very clever humor.

Again, it's just a joke, nothing more, I'm surprised a person of your outstanding intellect (and I sincerely mean that) you didn't get it my friend. (even after I took the time to explain the Wiki definition of Carlin's usage of the definition of civil and his wonderful interposing of two connotations).

Here is another brilliant example of Carlin's irony ... and I dare you not to laugh :)

eclimial, my post was a sardonic reply to your posting the definition of <civic> below Carlin's quote.

Fair enough, and thank you for your very 'civil' reply. Apparently my mistake in the original post was attempting to intellectualize the quote.

I very much enjoyed our discussion, and thank you Kiho, it was illuminating.

Now ... to segue and totally get us back on topic by shamelessly using Monty Pythons classic tag line ..."and now for something completely different":

"There's a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings

In a tree by the brook
There's a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiving

Oh ... It makes me wonder!

There's a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying for leaving

In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those who stand are still looking

And, it makes me wonder!"

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter
Jimmy Page/Robert Plant - Led Zeppelin (excerpt - Stairway to Heaven)
"I wept not, so to stone within I grew."
Dante Alighieri
War educates for freedom. For what is freedom? That one has the will to assume responsibility for oneself. That one maintains the distance which separates us. That one becomes more indifferent to difficulties, hardships, privation, even to life itself. That one is prepared to sacrifice human beings for one’s cause, not excluding oneself. Freedom means that the manly instincts which delight in war and victory dominate over other instincts, for example, over those of “pleasure.” The human being who has become free — and how much more the spirit who has become free — spits on the contemptible type of well-being dreamed of by shopkeepers, Christians, cows, females, Englishmen, and other democrats. The free man is a warrior.
