My Favorite Part…So Far

I’m certain you remember this evergreen tweet from the Obama years:

gerard racial healing and the new normal

And as sure as Obama fixed all the racial animosity, Biden has promised to fix all the political animus.

“I will work as hard for those who didn’t vote for me as those who did. Let this grim era of demonization in America begin to end here and now.” Joe Biden December, 2020

Spoken like the true politician he is – which is to say with convincing fake sincerity – Joe Biden called for setting aside all the rancor and ill-will in order for the newfound unity to begin. But if I may ask, and I’m quoting the last Democrat president here, “Well, how exactly are you going to do that? What exactly are you going to do?…What magic wand do you have?”

I suppose you could claim that getting 10 Republicans in the House to vote for impeaching Trump, for the second record breaking time, is a form of unity but I doubt that was exactly what Trump’s supporters were looking for. And I have to say that all the deplatforming, cancelling, harassment, firing and refusal to hire anyone and everyone who had anything to do with President Trump, ever, doesn’t feel very kumbaya.

Michael Goodwin documented the mendacity of the Democrat’s unity proclamation in his recent column: Dems want to bring down anyone who ever backed Trump. He notes that the revenge agenda, including the second impeachment, is loathsome enough but that it surely doesn’t end there.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and their co-conspirators in Big Media and Big Tech are proving Trump was right when he said his supporters were the ultimate target.

trump they're after you and I'm in the wayLet us…count the examples in just the last few days.

Start with the calls from leading Dems for GOP Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to resign for objecting to the Electoral College results, which amounts to an attempt to decapitate potential heirs to the Trump movement. Hawley and Cruz, forceful and articulate conservatives, essentially did what various Democrats did over the years when Republicans were elected president, yet they are being labeled criminals and traitors as accusers equate their votes with supporting the riot.

Joe Biden, who keeps insisting he wants to unite the country, even accused Hawley and Cruz of spreading the “big lie.” To make sure his point was clear, Biden referred to Hitler’s propagandist, Joseph Goebbels.

Imagine that — the next president says two senators who oppose him are acting like Nazis. Apparently the unity agenda will come only after all dissenters are driven from office.

Additional proof of Trump’s point comes in the way Big Tech is silencing the president and banishing those who believe Biden’s victory was less than 100 percent clean. Twitter’s claim that it has simply removed about 70,000 bots doesn’t pass the smell test, given the scope of complaints from conservatives about the vast number of followers who suddenly vanished.

Not to be outdone, Facebook blocks any mention of “stop the steal” and Amazon, Apple and Google drove Twitter competitor Parler off the web and out of business.

As Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida put it, “We are now living in a country where four or five companies, unelected, unaccountable, have the monopoly power to decide, we’re gonna wipe people out, we’re going to erase them from any digital platform.”

Thanks for that last bit Little Marco, I see you’re playing good cop this week.

But honestly, has there ever been a bigger group of sore winners? Which prompts me to update Gabriel’s Obama era tweet with a new Gab for the Biden years:
