The Quest for Unity

Democrats have done nothing to foster even comity among Americans.

President Joe Biden in his inauguration speech called for “unity,” promising he’d be the president for all Americans, even the ones who didn’t vote for him. I was reminded of the words of the noted philosopher Inigo Montoya (from “The Princess Bride”) to his associate, Vizzini. The criminal mastermind Vizzini kept using the word “inconceivable” over and over until Montoya finally replied, “You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means.”

Apparently, unity doesn’t mean the same thing to Biden’s supporters or his party. Since then, we’ve heard nothing but what the Left wants to do to Republicans who supported President Donald Trump. I’m not feeling the love!

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told MSNBC the Republican Party is filled with white supremacist sympathizers, racists, misogynists, and insurrectionists who nearly killed her, don’t you know. And “they” are not suffering any consequences for their behavior, she complains.

John Brennan, the former head of the CIA, told MSNBC that the pro-Trump “insurgency” that harbors “religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians” is much more dangerous than foreign terrorists. There are more of us than the foreign terror groups and we have “weapons” to carry out deadly attacks, he said, referring to the storming of the Capitol.

CNN’s Don Lemon likewise called Republicans domestic terrorists who frighten him more than foreign terrorists. He cites online radicalization, demonization of the “enemy” (anyone who disagrees with the Left) to justify their violence, and devotion to a “cult leader.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed, “The enemy is within the House of Representatives.” She’s frightened by the evil Republicans. She needs more money to protect Democrats from the Republicans.

I’m only scratching the surface of the insane, inflammatory rhetoric coming from leftists. They want Senators Josh Hawley and Tom Cotton impeached because they asked questions about possible voter fraud. How dare they?!

We’ve seen social media partnering with mainstream media to eliminate any point of view that doesn’t support the Left’s cause. Now that Biden has won, they feel free to completely block anyone they want. Having the “wrong” opinion will get you canceled. Having worked for the Trump administration could cause you to never be able to find a job to provide for your family.

The First Amendment will only apply to those who have the “correct” opinions. The Second Amendment will be next in line to eliminate. It happens whenever socialism takes power. Communism is not far behind. Hello 1984!

Everyone condemned the assault on the Capitol. The media refuses to investigate any influence of antifa and how protesters were shown into the Capitol. And yes, some Trump supporters, stuck on stupid, were a factor.

But the Left’s hyperventilating over January 6 in DC when it was silent during the “Summer of Love” is hypocritical. Nearly $2 billion dollars of property was destroyed, several dozen people were killed, hundreds of law enforcement officers were injured, and the Left said NOTHING!

I’m not seeing anything that would indicate Biden or his supporters are the least bit serious about bringing unity to our country. They’re fully aiming to turn this country into something our Founding Fathers could never have imagined.

As Patriots, now is not the time to let discouragement take over. Thomas Paine said it better than I can: “These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of men and women.”
