I think that idea is way overselling their future.

The IRA and Sinn Fein were organised and well-drilled groups with centuries of history behind them. They were used to operating in secret and had passionate, generational hatred for the English.

Trumpists are less than a rabble - a bunch of mostly old rednecks and losers who boast on Facebook and who could not organise the proverbial screw in a brothel.

They will stay online and spew hate, but take no action.
The point of equilibrium has passed; satire and current events are now indistinguishable.
