It’s so funny that the party of “diversity” and “tolerance” and the numerous “co-exist” bumper stickers should now call for “unity.”
It sounds nice on the outside and I am sure some Democrat focus group tested this word as the new word to support the unelected fraud Biden. I guess it beat out phrases like ” Comply or Die” or “Groupthink is Best.” Personally I am surprised that there wasn’t a call for a new Democrat symbol, the lemming or the sheep.
But, apparently this word seemed nice, harmless, and worthy of a Coke shared in a circle on a hill.
But, there’s a problem. The problem is that in order for ” unity” to work, everyone has to be the same, think the same, and act the same. One little chink in the unity armor and the whole thing goes to hell. Because in order for unity to work, EVERYONE must be totally on board. God forbid we should that there is diversity in thought or, gasp, concept of freedom.
And that means that anyone who isn’t unified needs to be removed, one way or another. Great examples of unity are China, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, and the USSR back in its heyday. The best example of unity and how it is enforced was Hitler’s Germany. Hitler wanted unity so badly that he was willing to put divergent thinkers, those of other races and religions, on trains to send them to concentration camps where they could all share a different kind of unity, death. And he wanted that unity for the world.
In our country today, some interesting people calling for unity are Alexandria Occasio Cortez, who wants to make a list of all of us who supported Trump so we can be dealt with. Another person in favor of enforcing unity is Kamala Harris, who wants to go after us. And, crazy Maxine Waters who wants to drive us out. I’m sure Alyssa Milano, if she could get out a tweet fast enough, would like us removed as well.
And this unity is supported, promoted, and enforced through the news media and social media, with a few exceptions.
And all the while, the marshmallow Republicans, are smiling and going along. They want to be part of this unity party as well. Mitt Romney, whose hair is the most unified I have ever seen, will dash to the microphone every day to profess his unity. ( By the way, Mitt, did you know that unity doesn’t include Mormons? You are just a step above David Koresh or Jim Jones in Democrat eyes.)
As a historical note, the Founders did not promote blind, generic unity. Although independence from England was their goal, they realized that disagreement, dis-unity, and free thinking was important as a country works its way to becoming a country where anyone could reach their potential with hard work and creative thinking. People could “unify” behind concepts even if they disagreed on process. Total unity is not only stagnation, but it is oppression. And certain death of freedom.
So, Dems, save your unity slogan for those who love complete government control of thought and actions. I politely decline.
