No chance to “join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature” when your team is categorizing opposing viewpoints as “more dangerous than al Qaeda.”
And no path to “carry all of us forward” when you launch your invalid administration with divisive, literally in-your-opponents’-face actions. Like requiring masks, reversing the job-creating Keystone XL Pipeline, rejoining anti-American agreements and international organizations, and roaring “olly, olly, oxen free” to caravans of illegal immigrants who lower wages and steal jobs (plus vote Democrat).
The New America “Opt-Out” is far from a fantasy. It’s now, more than ever, an inevitability.
The eminent Nixon-era economist Herb posited his famous law: “If something cannot go on forever, it will stop.”
Here’s the “Maistros Corollary:” If something must happen, it will.
‘I know speaking of unity can sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. I know that the forces that divide us are deep and they are real. But I also know they are not new … our better angels have always prevailed. In each of these moments, enough of us – enough of us – have come together to carry all of us forward, and we can do that now.”
— Joe Biden, inaugural address
“The idea that groups of Americans will somehow break off into separate peaceful nations of like-minded citizens is a fantasy.”
— Tucker Carlson, Jan. 6 monologue
It’s fascinating that America’s most prominent plagiarist used the same term – “fantasy” – as its most prominent pundit in, wrongly, dismissing the growing momentum toward the only logical response by red jurisdictions to the coming Californication of America.
Some pro tips, Mr. Fake President, if you want to hold forth on “unity”:
- Don’t start your tenure on an enormous electoral heist and a cascade of colossal lies.
- Don’t stand by silently while congressional partisans impeach your predecessor in his final days and attempt to hound two colleagues out of the “World’s Greatest Deliberative Body” for requesting deliberation of legitimate questions about your illegitimate win.
- Don’t accuse two-thirds of your audience of “systemic racism.”
- Don’t claim that “(p)olitics doesn’t have to be a raging fire, destroying everything in its path” when supporters are attempting to destroy and “deprogram” everyone in their path who ever breathed a word of support for the former chief executive.
- Don’t allow the nation’s capital to be turned into an occupied war zone – it’s bad optics for a “peaceful transition of power” – and then fail to defend selfless guardsmen defending you when a member of your party accuses them of desiring to foment rebellion.
