Charlotte, NC — Soon after Election Day in November, Joe Biden, his Democratic followers, and the mainstream media all started saying we needed to start focusing on unity. We were told that Biden was going to be the President of all Americans. Joe Biden even announced that his Inauguration celebration was all about unity as well.
While to the left it may have sounded good, it was really nothing but lip service. The conversations from the Left have been nothing but disgust toward those who supported President Donald Trump.
Take a recent conversation by CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo. Don Lemon said that if you voted for President Donald Trump, you were supporting the KKK and the Capitol rioters. How absolutely asinine!

These types of comments are doing nothing to focus on unity or coming together as Americans. Instead, they continue to further divide our nation.
Rather than focusing on the issues that drove Americans to support President Donald Trump following 8 years of divisiveness and increased racial tensions with Barack Obama, Democrats believe they can simply force the socialistic plans on Americans. They believe that Americans will not “fight back” against those ideas. If they do, well then they are true racists and members of these extremist groups that rioted.
Many conservatives believe the Left will continue pressuring them as we start into the Biden administration and they gain more power and control. They fear more retaliation in public spaces, like what happened to Parler and many on Facebook and Twitter. They believe that those same actions could bleed over into workplaces as well.
There is little reason to doubt such a move given that some Democratic lawmakers, like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have called for a registration for Trump supporters. It does little to show an image of unity and reconciliation.
This is, of course, what we came to expect following 8 years of Barack Obama. For several years, Democrats spent time shoving legislation after legislation down the throats of Americans. Most of that legislation was not even read by the lawmakers who voted for them.
The conditioning that the Left told us all that denying such measures was racist, discriminatory, and that it was hurting Americans. They continued with those same words about everything, playing to the feelings of Americans rather than the better judgment and common sense of Americans.
Now, they are taking it one step further by including anyone that voted for Trump in the group of those who violently attacked our Capitol. It does not matter that almost all conservatives have condemned the violence. It does not matter that they have condemned racism.
The Left’s blueprint of unity looks nothing like unity at all. It looks more like suppression and control and the mainstream media is committed to helping them.
