An opinion piece by Wayne Allyn Root of TownHall. I can only echo this man’s sentiments as we are definitely headed in the wrong direction. Here is the article in its entirety. Following that is another opinion piece by Jeff Davidson, whose opinions also make great sense to me. See what you think…
Remember the old New Orleans Saints coach Jim Mora, who went nuts at a press conference? “Playoffs? Are you kidding me? Playoffs?” he said.
You can quote me today: “Unity? Are you freakin’ kidding me? Unity? There’s no unity. President Joe Biden can mouth the word ‘unity’ all he wants. It’s a lie. Democrats don’t want unity. They want to censor us, ban us, purge us, wipe away American history like it never happened and then intimidate us into meekly going along with it all. They want us to kneel and say thank you while they destroy America and the American way of life. That’s what they mean by ‘unity.’ So, you can take your unity and shove it where the sun don’t shine.”
I won’t even discuss the statements in the past week by liberals and Democratic politicians that sounded like acts of war. I won’t get into how they dragged conservatives — and, of course, white males — into the gutter. I won’t get into the way they slandered us, attacked us, denigrated us, slimed us, aimed hate speech at us.
I’m an SOB (son of a butcher). My butcher father had great common sense. He taught me, “Watch what a man does, not what he says.” So, I’ll just point out Biden’s first acts as president.
— Biden had a record-setting first day in office. In a matter of hours, he killed an estimated 70,000 to 100,000 jobs. He killed the Keystone XL Pipeline. He suspended all new oil and gas leasing and drilling permits on federal land. He halted construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
These weren’t just any jobs. These were high-paying middle-class jobs in construction and energy. And ironically, these were union jobs. This is a disaster for the U.S. economy.
— Biden offered up a radical amnesty plan for every illegal alien in the United States. Biden wants to give every one of them (a Yale University study says there are 22 million) a fast-track to citizenship in only eight years. This is a disaster for America in many ways.
First, this radical amnesty plan rewards lawbreakers. The rule of law and the U.S. Constitution no longer matter. We’re not America anymore; we’re in “Mad Max.”
Second, these 22 million will no doubt become new Democratic voters. Republicans will never win again.
Third, they will take jobs from and lower the wages of American citizens.
Fourth, these new citizens will bankrupt America as they all qualify for welfare, food stamps, free Obamacare and 100 other welfare programs.
Fifth, they will overcrowd and bankrupt our public schools and health care system.
Sixth, this will overwhelm the police, court and prison system.
Seventh, this will encourage millions of additional foreigners to invade our border. Soon none of us will recognize America. This will be a country foreign to Americans.
Lastly, Biden will have to dramatically raise taxes on American citizens and business owners to pay for this massive cost.
— Biden put a 100-day freeze on deportations of illegal aliens. How many American citizens will die because illegal alien felons were allowed to stay?
— Biden required noncitizens to be included in the census, thereby increasing funding for sanctuary cities and broke Democratic welfare states, while adding new Democratic members of Congress for cities and states filled with illegal aliens.
— Biden reversed the Trump ban on travelers from seven terrorist-friendly countries. Just what the American people desperately need — more visitors from Yemen, Somalia and Iran. I can’t wait.
— Biden rejoined the Paris climate accord and promised to add tons of new environmental regulations. This will destroy manufacturing and energy companies, kill millions of high-paying jobs and dramatically raise energy bills for the middle class.
— Biden forced women’s sports to allow transgender males to compete on women’s teams, use women’s bathrooms and dress in women’s locker rooms. This is a declaration of war on women — even if liberal mothers are too blinded by feminism, atheism, communism and dumb political correctness to see it.
Biden is not a “moderate.” He is either a radical Marxist out to destroy America or a feeble old man with dementia being used as a puppet by George Soros, former President Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar and other radical, extreme, crazed America haters to destroy this country. But it really doesn’t matter. Either way, he’s leading us down the road to disaster, ruin, misery and poverty. He is going to turn America into Venezuela.
This isn’t “unity.” It’s the destruction of America and everything that ever made it great. I’m not in unity. Are you?
Count me as “the Resistance.”

The Left Seeks Subordination not Unity
Jim Cathcart was raised in Oklahoma and made his way out to the West Coast, where he became a highly successful professional speaker, mega-author of numerous books and articles, and a leader in the area of personal and executive development, leadership, and business strategy. I’ve known Jim since 1984, have been friends ever since, and can tell you he absolutely tells it like it is.
He circulated a letter recently called, “A Recap of the News,” which has some remarkable insights, and is worth sharing here:
A Recap of the News…
Banning books (Burbank, CA); rioting in the streets (Portland, OR); breaking glass windows (Minneapolis, Kenosha, Portland, Baltimore, and our nation’s Capitol); controlling language (U.S. Congress); denying nature (gender denial in sports); accusations of disloyalty (investigating political preferences and voting history); and isolating and excluding opponents (Parler blockage, sponsorship, and distribution denials)…
Demonization of disagreement (using terms like “domestic terrorism” and “white supremacy” to label people as suspicious or undesirable or dangerous); suggesting that racism is so deep and so bad that those guilty of it don’t even realize it and can’t do anything to change, therefore reparation and unending guilt are required…
Putting “ism” on the end of any behavior or attitude that threatens your narrative (national-ism, sex-ism, Trump-ism); restricting businesses so much that millions of people become unemployed and unable to find work (thereby requiring dependency on a government rescue)…
Changing school curricula to exclude historical truths and doubling-down on new priorities and prejudices; restricting public gatherings and church meetings; inhibiting family get-togethers; and encouraging the isolation and public shaming of those who disagree…
Adding new travel restrictions that require “papers” (covid testing and vaccination); releasing dangerous criminals from prison early; welcoming unvetted immigrants; demonizing police and border security; and amassing the military to imply massive levels of danger to the “leaders”…
Making the legal ownership of guns seem to be dangerous unless the government controls them (HR 5717 on the house agenda now); shaming and isolating groups and companies you disagree with (NRA, MyPillow, Goya Foods)…
Controlling the narrative of the news; demonizing the networks or commentators who have huge followings (Fox, Newsmax, OANN, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Tucker Carlson)…
Publicizing the home addresses of people you disagree with so they can be threatened at home (Lindsey Graham, Josh Hawley, Mitch McConnell); attacking your major opponents long after you’ve won so that future resistance is impossible (Trump impeachment post election); denying news coverage of stories critical of the current leadership (Hunter Biden’s corruption)…
Demonizing capitalism; abandoning all limits to spending; and positioning debt as something that lenders should “forgive”…
Restricting the country’s ability to remain energy independent; diminishing the danger posed to us by aggressive foreign countries; recommending the isolation and “reprogramming” of your opponents (Trump voters)…
Jim then asks, does any of this appear to be a pattern to you? Is any of it familiar? Is it possible to follow this path and arrive at “Unity”? Is there anything in this that sounds like America to you? Does the continuation of this approach lead to anything you want to see?
The Path to Unity?
I wonder, what exactly do we conclude when an administration and a political party backed by a duplicitous media apparently intend to thoroughly dominate society and contort reality? Clearly, we on the right will not succumb to this treatment. And, we must embrace the realization that multi-millions of people on the left strongly or perhaps passively agree with the left power mongers.
Alas, it is nearly impossible to reach the left’s rank and file. They’ve been so taken over by the liberal media, that although they’re one mouse click away from alternative news sites, which would give them perspective, they never make that click.
This is the quintessential dilemma of our age. A free and fair press would help unite the country because we could all agree on the truth of situations. The press that we have is worse than the Soviet Union of the 1930s. They spew propaganda around-the-clock with no sign of letting up, and they are getting stronger all the time.
