The Party of Hate Feigns Unity

“When Democrats say they want ‘unity,’ what they really mean is they want submission.”

Democrat firebrands have batted around the words “healing” and “unity” in the days since Joe Biden was declared (at least for now) the president-elect. For example, in his disingenuous Saturday night speech, Biden declared:

I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify. Who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States. And work with all my heart with the confidence of the whole people, to win the confidence of all of you. … I sought this office to restore the soul of America, to rebuild the backbone of this nation, the middle class, and to make America respected around the world again. And to unite us here at home.

We genuinely wish that was the case. But the Democrat Party is defined by division and hate, and the party’s pre- and post-election remarks offer little in the way of consolation. If anything, the rhetoric has worsened. Below you will find a compendium of some of the most hateful language from the Left in recent months, starting with Joe Biden himself.


“We don’t do things like those chumps out there with the microphones, those Trump guys.” —Joe Biden

“It’s not enough to just send Donald Trump packing, or even just to repair the damage he’s done. We’ve got to unrig and rebuild the systems that made his rise possible to begin with, and that allowed his administration to hurt so many people in so many ways.” —Elizabeth Warren

“We have the most dangerous person in the history of our country sitting in the White House.” —Nancy Pelosi

“I used to wonder how could the people of Germany allow Hitler to exist. But with each passing day, I’m beginning to understand how.” —James Clyburn

“You know, since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, we have seen not only the spreading of the virus but also a rapid spreading of racism and xenophobia.” —Ayanna Pressley

“Trump wants to instigate a race war. So he can rise up and say, ‘I’m the real grand wizard of the Klu Klux Klan and I’m the President. Reelect me.’ That’s what he’s trying to do.” —Bobby Rush

“I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men.” —Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan

“Bull Connor may be gone, but today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone, but we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.” —Barack Obama

“Let’s remember that tens of millions of people voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division. We’ve got a lot of work to do to reach out to these folks in the years ahead and connect with them on what unites us.” —Michelle Obama

“The people who were very transparent about, like, voting because they wanted a tax cut — okay. But, like, you knew you also were voting for a racist, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, transphobic, human being who was going to have a lot of power to manifest those, like, hateful bigoted values into the world. So that may be what is your motivation.” —Chelsea Clinton

“You are inbred racist trash. Please f—k off.” —Democrat strategist Adam Parkhomenko to Marsha Blackburn

“He’s gonna get his fat a— beat. … The idea is not just to defeat Trump. You have to defeat Trump-ism. You have to defeat the idea that the United States of America is a place and not an idea.” —James Carville


“[Trump voters] have revealed themselves for the racists that they are, the tribalists that they are. … It’s almost a level of fanaticism that I’ve only seen in cult groups and Middle East terrorist groups.” —MSNBC contributor Malcolm Nance

“This is about white people who saw a president who was corrupt and sexist and violent and mismanaged an entire pandemic that’s killed over 230,000 people by the election and they said, ‘I want some more of that.’” —MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson 

“Do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law?” —MSNBC’s Joy Reid

“We intellectually understand what America is at its base, right? That there is a great amount of racism, anti-blackness, anti-wokeness. This idea that political correctness is some sort of scheme to destroy white America, right? … I think part of your heart says, ‘You know what? Maybe the country’s going to pay off all of this pain.’ As the night wore on … I realized … that’s not happening. We are still who we thought, unfortunately. … It’s disappointing, and I emerge from this disappointed.” —Joy Reid

“Can we talk about 1 of the few topics I may actually know too much about: homicide? Specifically, whether Donald Trump may have criminal exposure for some level of negligent homicide or voluntary/involuntary manslaughter for the way he’s mishandled the Coronavirus crisis. … ALL criminal charges will have to be investigated and, if the evidence dictates it, prosecuted come Jan. 2021.” —MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner

“Donald Trump would kill reporters if he could get away with it.” —MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough

“All of this [minority support for Trump] to me points to the power of the white patriarchy and the coattail it has of those who depend on it or aspire to it. It reaches across gender and sexual orientation and even race. Trump’s brash, privileged chest trumping and alpha-male dismissiveness and in-your-face rudeness are aspirational to some men and appealing to some women. Some people who have historically been oppressed will stand with the oppressors, and will aspire to power by proximity.” —NYT’s Charles Blow

“May be relevant to note that there is a long, close association between right-wing activism and medical quackery.” —NYT’s Paul Krugman 

“I hope people realize that there are many white Republican voters in this country if they’re given a choice between renting a room in their house to a person of color or burning down the house, they will elect to burn down the entire neighborhood. It’s not just a small fringe.” —NYT contributing op-ed writer Wajahat Ali

“You can’t heal or reform the GOP who are now an extremist party. They have to be broken, burned down and rebuilt. When Biden is in power treat them like the active threats to democracy they are. If those who committed crimes aren’t punished then they will be more emboldened.” —Wajahat Ali

“The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals.” —Katherine Stewart in The New York Times

“The white race is the biggest murderer, rapist, pillager, and thief of the modern world.” —1619 Project guru Nikole Hannah-Jones

“These days, I am reminded quite often that you do not have to be white to support white supremacy.” —WaPo’s Eugene Scott

“If you quote the Trump admin you are an enemy of the people.” —WaPo’s Jennifer Rubin

“Any R[epublican] now promoting rejection of an election or calling to not to follow the will of voters or making baseless allegations of fraud should never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into ‘polite’ society. We have a list.” —Jennifer Rubin

“The only patriot on the Right … to me is Romney. He’s the only one who stuck his neck out. The rest of them are trash.” —"The View’s" Joy Behar

“The terrorist Trump must be defeated, must be destroyed, must be devoured at the ballot box and then he and his enablers and his supporters and his collaborators and the Mike Lees and the William Barrs and the Sean Hannitys and the Mike Pences and the Rudy Giulianis and the Kyle Rittenhouses and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society.” —Keith Olbermann

“When this nightmare is over, we need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It would erase Trump’s lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe.” —Robert Reich

“If you vote for Donald Trump, you are a racist. You have no wiggle room.” —Jemele Hill

“If Trump wins re-election, it’s on white people. No one else.” —Jemele Hill 

“[America is] a private club founded by old rich white men, for rich white men.” —Charlamagne tha God

“There is a lizard brain in this country. Donald Trump is a product of the white man’s, the anguished, nervous white guy’s lizard brain.” —Jon Meacham

Academia & Glitterati

“Donald Trump is not an Adolf Hitler. At least Hitler improved the daily life of his followers, had discipline, and required more of himself to gain the respect of his followers. … A refusal to make comparisons has been a problem, when they have such similarities. Donald Trump’s death count is higher than Hitler’s at the same period.” —Yale University professor Bandy X. Lee

“We’ll be saying this name a lot I’m sure because she’s a f—ing nut. Religion — I was right about that one too. I’m sorry, but Amy [Coney] Barrett, Catholic — really Catholic. I mean really, really Catholic — like speaking in tongues. Like she doesn’t believe in condoms, which is what she has in common with Trump because he doesn’t either.” —Bill Maher

“It’s a very weird thing to watch these old creeps congratulate a handmaid on her clown car vagina.” —Lauren Hough

“When you’re born in this country, we all drink the poison that is white supremacy. Social justice is not just a literacy, it’s a lifestyle.” —Lady Gaga

“Donald Trump is actively trying to kill our children.” —Rob Reiner

“It’s insane what our fears are if we lose, compared to their fears if Biden wins. like we will prob all die or be handmaids and they’re worried about bathroom safety.” —Chrissy Teigen

“What more did Trump have to do to show us that he’s insane and not fit to lead this country? I feel like I overestimated the American people, and I underestimated the Village People.” —Jimmy Kimmel

“I can only imagine the envy with which [Donald Trump] watched Derek Chauvin’s casual cruelty and monstrous indifference as he murdered George Floyd. I can only imagine that Donald wishes it had been his knee on Floyd’s neck.” —Bette Midler

“The closeness of this election is showing just how many decided racism is ‘not a big deal.’” —Wesley Snipes

“F—k Donald Tromp [sic] and every American citizen, celebrity, white woman, black man, ETC who supported him burnnnnnnnnnn.” —Janelle Monáe

As The Babylon Bee satirically but oh so accurately puts it: “Study finds connection between getting your way and calling for unity.” The Federalist’s Sean Davis astutely adds, “When Democrats say they want ‘unity,’ what they really mean is they want submission.”
