Every year, we dedicate a day for love and friendship. This year Valentine's day is marred by the aftermath of the impeachment trial that acquitted President Trump. The outcome was foreshadowed by Senator Paul's demand for a reckoning before it started. No one should have been surprised that the "Never Trumpers" are not going to back down. Congressman Lieu made it clear that the fight would continue until President Trump conceded and ended the "Big Lie".
In response, President Biden issued a one-page summation and in it he declared war on nearly half of America. His closing statement, "This sad chapter in our history has reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must be ever vigilant. That violence and extremism has no place in America. And that each of us has a duty and responsibility as Americans, and especially as leaders, to defend the truth and to defeat the lies. That is how we end this uncivil war and heal the very soul of our nation. That is the task ahead. And it’s a task we must undertake together. As the United States of America." The key statement is that we cannot end this uncivil war until we defeat the lies. Those are not words of unity, those are words of war.
The President and his allies are at war with Americans. The DNC labels us as domestic terrorists, malcontents, deplorables, white supremacists, and so on. The DNC is not interested in unity, they are interested in dominance and totalitarianism. As Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi declared, we must engage in peaceful civil disobedience, not political violence. Our opponents continue to demonstrate in Portland, Washington DC, and other major cities. Our response must be economic, we boycott businesses that engage in cancel culture that fund these "mostly peaceful protests" that call for hate, disunity, and the end of America. We need to engage in monthly protests at our capitals in support of people that are and become canceled. We must never except "Wokeism" as the norm and we must not allow people to be canceled. Instead, we put America first to make it great again.
