Op-Ed: As America Is More Divided Than Ever, We're Still Waiting on Biden to Deliver His Magical 'Unity'

Western Journal

Nearly a half-year into the Biden presidency, Americans are still waiting for the unity promised on Inauguration Day.

The fires of racial tension are still stoked as Democrats divide the U.S. population along the lines of skin color — whether the casualties are Republicans or not.

In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has refused to give interviews to white journalists, speaking blatant racism into existence to have only “black” or “brown” reporters interact with her.

This comes mere months after Coca-Cola asked its employees to be “less white” to fight racism — as if being more racist is the way to do it.

More recently, the liberal media has given a new name to anti-Semitism, scapegoating Israel for the Palestinian conflict and turning a blind eye to Hamas’ terrorism, simply because Jews and not Muslims are the victims.

And where is President Biden? Staying silent, per usual. The Biden administration continues to lament “systemic racism” without defining it, while ignoring the flashpoints of division when they don’t suit the Democratic platform.

Anti-white racism or anti-Semitic violence need not be condemned, according to “Moderate Joe,” since they don’t fit the left-wing narrative of victim-based identity politics.

We have reached a point where left-wing commentators are openly asking their ideological opponents, “What do you like about being white?” That’s how far we’ve come as a society.

Is it any surprise that Black Lives Matter protesters are still rioting and breaking windows in Portland, Oregon? Why wouldn’t they, when President Biden and other Democrats refuse to call a spade a spade? Why obey the law when the left refuses to denounce and deter BLM violence?

Even in my daily life, I have seen America’s divisions run deep. Earlier this month, I was called a “cracker” and a “white supremacist” for getting to a parking spot first. On another occasion, I was labeled a “racist” by my Uber driver after helping him navigate a busy airport — respectfully, of course.

When race matters above all else, as Democrats like President Biden want it, racism is bound to manifest itself in even the most mundane moments.

I am by no means trying to play the victim card here. I am no victim. I deplore the victimhood politics of 2021. But there is a point to be made that the more Democrats peddle phrases like “systemic racism,” “critical race theory” or “reparations,” the more divided America becomes. Such rhetoric will never be unifying.

As Americans, we need to do more to unify our divided nation. We need to be better, as individuals. It shouldn’t be difficult to condemn all forms of racism and violence — whether it affects white people, black people or Jewish people.

It should be easy to call out the most radical among us, even if they happen to be “on our side.” When it comes to racism and violence, there are only two sides: Good and evil.

Unfortunately, “doing more” and “being better” won’t start at the top. Neither President Biden nor the Democratic Party is fit to unify us when racial identity is so ingrained in the left’s propaganda. Unity will never come from lip service when it’s supplemented by rhetoric and policies that amplify our racial differences instead of consolidating them into the “melting pot” that should be America.

At the very least, President Biden would retain his honesty by admitting his divisive agenda, rather than blowing smoke from the bully pulpit.

In truth, America’s only hope for unity is 2024, when President Biden leaves the White House and an “America First” Republican takes over. Until then, Americans should brace for more Democratic division — on TV and in their daily lives.

Tyranny: Concerned Parents Arrested After School Board Cuts Off Comments on Trans, CRT Policies

Two Virginia parents protesting critical race theory and transgender policy proposals at their children’s schools were arrested Tuesday during a meeting of the Loudoun County School Board. The public comment session was held so parents could voice their concerns over the teaching of CRT as well as a new policy on “transgender and gender-expansive students.” Instead, the board ended the meeting midway and two parents were arrested. Two arrests made at the Loudoun County, Virginia school board meeting after it was declared an unlawful assembly and some parents here to protest against critical race theory and a transgender policy refused to leave right away #CriticalRaceTheory pic.twitter.com/dsZDrqJ0Gp — Gabriella Borter (@gabriellaborter) June 22, 2021 A total of 259 people had signed up to offer public comments, but the meeting was shut down after just 51 had spoken, according to Fox News. Ian Prior, a father of two students and a spokesman for the parent advocacy group Fight for Schools, slammed the board for refusing to allow parents to have a say in how their children are educated on controversial topics such as critical race theory and transgenderism. Prior told Fox News that it’s imperative for parents to “get a seat at the table” to help shape what their children learn in the classroom. Otherwise, schools become vehicles for the mass brainwashing of children with destructive left-wing propaganda. https://youtu.be/AntKpOTq0Fc The brouhaha at the Loudoun County School Board meeting came after former Republican state Sen. Dick Black slammed the board for suspending teacher Tanner Cross in May for stating at a school board meeting that he doesn’t believe “a biological boy can be a girl and vice-versa.” Two weeks ago, a judge ordered Cross’ school to reinstate him, saying his statements were constitutionally protected free speech under the First Amendment.

Confirmed: Disguised Leftists Infiltrated Trump Crowd on Jan. 6, Said They Told FBI How to Infiltrate MAGA

Recently released videos prove what conservatives have been saying for months now: Trump supporters were not the only ones at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Two leftists infiltrated the Jan. 6 mob that stormed the Capitol and later said they told the FBI how to “infiltrate Trump rallies.” The two men are Walter Masterson and Peter Scattini and a quick look skim through their respective Twitter feeds shows that they are, indeed, leftists. It’s been stoked by the media & by the president. It goes beyond institutional distrust & disgust. So many are painting these protestors as a monolith, when in reality it was an amalgam of families, business owners & anarchists who believed they were fighting for “their” America — Peter Scattini (@jpscattini) January 7, 2021 COVID Nurse at the MAGA Rally does not believe in wearing a mask. pic.twitter.com/1SvKyFpPCf — Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) December 13, 2020 Multiple videos on Scattini’s YouTube channel show him and Masterson — disguised as reporters from One America News Network — asking questions to a number of Trump supporters outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6uCSMnHO7w&t=1556s An additional video blog posted on Feb. 17 features Scattini explaining how FBI agents approached the two men after their Jan. 6 stunt. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WajJZZfoLXg “They introduced themselves as two agents of the FBI and one officer of the NYPD and asked if they could come inside and, of course, we said yes,” Scattini said. “We talked to them for about an hour, we are not in any trouble, but that was super weird.” “Walter is giving them tips on how to infiltrate Trump rallies.” This lines up with a recent assertion made by Fox News personality Tucker Carlson that the FBI had agents on the inside during the Jan. 6 incursion. “Strangely, some of the key people who…
