Even before Joe Biden and his backers prematurely declared victory in last week’s election, the radical left let loose its inner-totalitarian.
“Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
Tweeted “Old Macdonald Cornell” grad Keith Olbermann:
His supporters, and his collaborators, and the Mike Lees and the William Barrs, and Sean Hannitys, and the Mike Pences, and the Rudy Gullianis and the Kyle Rittenhouses and the Amy Coney Barretts must be prosecuted and convicted and removed from our society while we try to rebuild it and to rebuild the world Trump has destroyed by turning it over to a virus
In a since-deleted tweet, Olbermann called for the arrest of Fox News’s Tucker Carlson
Watch this from Olbermann. He’s nuts.
An individual you’ve never heard of called Nils Gilman, another of the ubiquitous leftist foundation elites, thinks conservative writer Michael Anton should be executed.
Other totalitarians propose a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, while still others claim to have established a Trump Accountability Project that will chastise top Republicans and Trump appointees.
It’s clear from this domestic abuse they mean to kill us if they get the chance. How that will work in practice given that 72 million people voted for Trump and millions of them own guns is another question. But let’s take them at their word, and offer the obvious solution.
It’s time for Americans to discuss what would have been unthinkable in 1960: separating the country to permit the two major political factions to live apart.
The anti-human, anti-Christian coalition that voted for Biden, and the largely Christian coalition that voted for Trump, just can’t get along.
The Bidenites hate us. They’ve said and shown it time and again. And now they’re making lists of those to punish. Let’s admit the truth and file divorce papers before the good china flies.
They won’t let go easily, of course, and might even fight to the death trying to keep the country together. But putting that aside momentarily, the obvious question is how we arrived at this unfortunate pass, where the elites who represent one half of the population have decided they wish to punish and even kill those who disagree with them.
It was inevitable. And we can blame three remarkable political developments. Beginning in the mid 1960s, the advocates of sexual license evolved from being a collection of oddballs and freaks obsessed with sodomy and little boys into an unstoppable political movement that pursued a war against decency and the family with the ferocity of 18th-century Jacobins. Our political, financial, and managerial elites encouraged and financed the leftist attack on the Christian social order. And Third World immigrants flooded the country to become citizens and vote for what was, 50 years ago, beginning to become an anti-American political party that supported the sexual revolution.
Why We Can’t Get Along 1 — Sexual Revolution and the Collapse of the Christian Social Order
We should have seen it coming.
The complete story of the sexual revolution is too long to tell. It suffices to say that revolution, which progressed from no-fault divorce and legal abortion in the 1960s and 1970s to homosexual nuptials in 2015, has erased what Christians had believed for 2,000 years: that sexual activity is reserved for married couples, meaning one man and one woman.
It wasn’t long before the left adopted sexual license as the sine qua non of equality and a truly just and fair society. They turned sex perverts and child molesters into heroes and martyrs for “tolerance” and “free speech.” The license included the “rights” to commit adultery, make dirty movies, abortion-on-demand, taxpayer-subsidized birth control and abortion, and most recently, something called “gay marriage,” which is neither gay nor marriage, and then something else called “transgender” people. The Democrats no longer say “live and let live.” They are demonically obsessed with sexual license. They are equally obsessed with forcing us to accept it. It’s the reason they hiss, fume, and spit with anger when a Republican president nominates even a moderate conservative to the U.S. Supreme Court. A justice might vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. She might vote the wrong way on “gay adoption.”
Unsurprisingly, as the leftist mainstream media, Hollywood, and corporate America promoted those evils, at first shyly but then openly, the culture changed. Television went from Leave It To Beaver to Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. The Episcopal Church, if that is what one should call it, not only conducts “gay marriages” but also ordains lesbian priestesses. Now, even some conservative Christians these days can’t explain to their children why homosexual behavior is objectively disordered, so brainwashed are they to believe that one mustn’t be “judgmental,” and that sexual behavior between “consenting adults” is nobody’s business. Get with the times, they tell us. Even some Catholic bishops believe as much. The incessant, unpunished heresies from gaydar-triggering Jesuit James Martin suggest that a homosexual Mafia runs the “Catholic” Church in this country. That’s how bad things are.
With so many marriages ending in divorce, millions of kids alienated from fathers, 60 million abortions since Roe, and American corporations not only promoting homosexual behavior but also punishing employees who oppose it, it’s safe to say the Christian social order in this country has collapsed. Some people call the United States “post-Christian.” In fact, it is anti-Christian. Consider what Sen. Sen. Dianne Feinstein told Amy Coney Barrett when President Trump picked her to sit on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in 2017. “The dogma lives loudly within you,” Feinstein said. The implication was obvious: The Catholic Barrett’s “dogma” is unacceptable.
What Feinstein’s or the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s “dogmas” are we are not permitted to ask, of course, but anyway, a half-century past Woodstock and Roe, and just a short lustrum after the objectively evil Obergefell decision, Americans who oppose unfettered sexual license are called, by turn, sexists, haters, breeders, homophobes, and, of course, guilty of waging “war on women.” If they even question the practical wisdom of inter-racial dating or marriage — yet another issue involving sex — they are branded racists.
The people hurling those epithets, almost to a man — or woman — are hard-left Biden voters and the political and business elites, including Republicans, who agree with them.
Make no mistake, they hate us. Well more than simply promising to leave the country if a white Republican they hate is elected president — a promise they never keep, by the way — they even say they want to kill us.
Before the lunatic Olbermann and the woman also known as Occasional Cortex suggested rounding up the usual suspects, a left-wing Korean psychiatrist suggested that white American Trump voters must be carpet bombed, like the Germans in Dresden in 1945. Nothing less will put the country right. In September, an obese professor at Marshall University told her students that all Trump voters should die of the Chinese Virus before Election day. Other academics are openly anti-white.
Other totalitarians propose a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, while still others purport to have established a Trump Accountability Project that will chastise top Republicans and Trump appointees.
None of this rhetoric is new. Nutocrats who worked for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ failed campaign admitted they were planning gulags and the mass murder of moderates, liberals, and conservatives if he had won.
And of course, for four years, the only words we’ve heard from the left about Trump are “racist,” a “sexist,” and “scum.” If Trump had cured cancer, the left would have wailed that he put oncologists in the unemployment line.
These are not the words and actions of people with whom we can reason.
We cannot reason with those who believe that jamming a scissors into an infant’s skull as it emerges from the birth canal is morally acceptable. We cannot reason with people who wage war on nuns because they refuse to subsidize abortion and contraception, or those who fly into uncontrolled rage because a grown woman, attending a $50,000-a-year Catholic law school, can’t get free birth control pills. We cannot reason with people who deny the biological reality of sex.
On no other matter is the left so obsessed. Not Social Security. Not human trafficking. Not the minimum wage. Not inhumane conditions in jails and prisons. The reason why, for now, is unimportant.
Where the left was once obsessed with class war, it is now obsessed principally with sex and race, although even its obsession with race is not as deranged as its obsession with sex. Such is that obsession that its elites believe obvious molesters dressed in drag must be permitted to share bathrooms with little girls. Of course, they don’t believe in boys and girls any more anyway. “Gender,” as they wrongly call sex, “is a social construct.” They support Drag Queen Story Hours at taxpayer-subsidized libraries. Oppose that insanity, and you’re a “transphobe.”
Of course, not all Democrat voters think that way. Most probably don’t. Not all of them would kill us, or jam a scissors into a baby’s fontanelle, or want perverts in the ladies’ room. But they vote for those who do, and the elites they elect will make public policy. On November 3, half the country voted for the candidate who will appoint those who hate us to run his administration.
But again, the key point is this. We cannot reason with these deranged, obsessed people. Those who believe infanticide is acceptable, that two men can be married, and that boys should use the girls’ room have an irreconcilably different view of human nature — of what it means to be a human being — than those who believe the opposite. They have a new religion, free of objective truth, that is unalterably and cosmically at odds with ours. This isn’t a matter of to-may-to vs. to-mah-to. It’s a matter of their seeing an orange where we see an apple.
We can no more live in peace with them than devout Muslims can live in peace with devout Christians. The two sides are incompatible.
Why We Can’t Get Along 2: Mass Immigration
Clearly, we cannot approve or even accept the public policies they will make, just as we should never have accepted or approved the one public policy passed into law long before the insuperable divide we now face, and that was indeed, its concomitant cause. Democrat Rep. Emanuel Cellar’s’ Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 enabled the radical left to cement the political power it now wields at the ballot box.
The act wrecked U.S. immigration policy, which had always, and correctly, favored Europeans. With one law and the stroke of President Lyndon Johnson’s pen, backed by Clan Kennedy, that changed. Of course, the bill’s backers swore the act would not alter the demographic make-up of the country, something they knew they had to say to pass the bill. They lied.
And so for the past nearly 60 years, millions of Third World refugees and immigrants flooded the country. Illegal aliens from Mexico and Central America swarmed into American cities. Border agents apprehended almost 1 million illegals in fiscal 2019, and another nearly 500,000 in 2020, but the latest arrivals, whom a President Biden will reward with citizenship, are a drop in the bucket compared to what began washing ashore when the Beatles were still on top. Immigration since the 1960s has turned once solidly red states a deep shade of blue blue.
Despite being “natural conservatives” and “pro-family” voters, as the Bush Republicans describe them, immigrants vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. Despite being “hard workers” and “entrepreneurs,” which many certainly are, immigrants want free stuff. That’s why they vote for Democrats. Whatever their “family values,” whatever they think of abortion, they want free stuff.
Beyond that, some of them hate the country that took them in. Rep. Ilhan Omar has said as much by lecturing us on the putative sins of our ancestors and attacking the U.S. soldiers killed and wounded in the Battle of Mogadishu in 1993, more commonly known as the Black Hawk Down Incident. Yet U.S. taxpayers pulled the ingrate out of the squalor of a country controlled by mass-murdering warlords. Other ingrates are immigrant Rep. Pramilla Jayapal, an Indian who helps illegal aliens file what are likely false asylum claims, and immigrant Sen. Maize Hirono, who is Japanese and hates Catholics and the Knights of Columbus. After two black supremacist thugs murdered a cop, then were killed in a gun battle with police, Rep. Rashida Tlaib denounced “white supremacy.” Putative Vice President Kamala Harris has compared immigration authorities to the Ku Klux Klan. Tlaib and Harris are the children of immigrants.
Another daughter of immigrants, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, pushed to remove the Confederate battle flag from statehouse grounds. Haley is a Republican, so at least the desire to erase this nation’s past among immigrants and their children is bipartisan.
With respect to immigration and returning to the fact that we can’t get along, left-wing political scientist Robert Putnam famously found that diversity is not our strength, as the Bush-Obama-Biden Axis of Evil tells us. It is a weakness. He found that the more diverse a society is, the less trust it has. The residents of “diverse” cities don’t trust anything: the mayor, their neighbors, the newspaper, the hospital, the schools … nothing.
If the most diverse communities, as Putnam learned, show the greatest loss of trust, then a “multicultural” America is good neither for the diverse communities in which trust is absent, nor for the monolithic communities the diverse communities resent because they have the things — like trust — the diverse communities don’t.
The experience of Yugoslavia after the iron hand of Communism loosed its grip offers a lesson on the futility of trying to force “diversity” on people of different races, religions, and cultures.
Why Americans were stupid enough to import millions of people who cannot get along with us or each other, who refuse to assimilate, and who, again, hate us, is a question for another day. One might say “Americans” didn’t import them, that the politicians did because they wanted to elect a new people. True, but who elected the politicians in 1965 who passed the nation-busting immigration bill?
Time To Divorce
That rhetorical question aside, as a practical political matter, a self-governing republic of 350 million people is too large to be a real self-governing republic, particularly when it has become, as Teddy Roosevelt warned, “a tangle of squabbling nationalities.” And we needn’t read the work of “them Greek homos,” as renowned historian of the ancients Al Sharpton called them, to know that.
As this election season has shown, as the non-stop hate-Trump media coverage of the last four years has shown, as the irrational riots after black men stupid enough to confront police have shown, and as the rioting Bidenites will show if their candidate is not inaugurated, the old America is gone.
In 1964, John Wayne warmly congratulated LBJ on winning the presidency. The patriotic actor stressed his loyalty even though he opposed the president politically.
In 1976, Duke congratulated President Jimmy Carter on defeating Gerald Ford, and spoke at Carter’s inauguration.
I’m pleased to be present and accounted for in this capital of freedom to witness history as it happens — to watch a common man accept the uncommon responsibility he won fair and square by stating his case to the American people, not by bloodshed, beheadings and riots at the palace gates.
That America is gone.
Over are the days when The Gipper and Tip O’Neill fought over Social Security by day, then supposedly went back to the White House for a dram of Bushmill’s and Irish jokes at night.
That America is gone.
Presidential elections are intended to be vigorously-debated, fairly-fought, yet reasonable quadrennial reassessments of the country’s political direction. They are not meant to be a fight to the death over disputed votes, with one side rioting in the streets and attacking voters if it does not win.
Confirming a Supreme Court justice should be pro-forma. But it isn’t because the court has become a super legislature that is deciding matters it has no business deciding, and conjuring, out of an invisible Constitution, “rights” unknown to Christian civilization for 2,000 years. That, of course, is why the left explodes like a nuclear device when a Republican president nominates a federal judge suspicious of the jurisprudence underlying Roe or any other decision that manufactures another form of sexual license.
As for that real Constitution, it’s a dead letter. When a Democrat Speaker of the House dismisses a question about the constitutionality of a major federal initiative with no precedent in law or history, one may safely say her party is no longer interested in the Constitution, except as a means to further entrench their political and cultural power.
But that’s a subject for another day.
The radical left, including some Democrat politicians who’ve been around for a long time, and establishment NeverTrumpers who identify as Republicans, declared war on Donald Trump, his voters, and real Americans on November 9, 2016. Before then, they waged guerrilla war. For years, they mouthed patriotic platitudes as they managed the globalist Deep State. But when Trump was elected, they escalated to open warfare.
The Bidenites and their GOP ruling-class enablers have had four years to prove my point, and they’ve proven it in spades. And now they propose to punish us.
Oppose them politically — question abortion, free birth control pills, affirmative action, “free trade,” Islamic immigration, illegal immigration, that non-thing called “gay marriage,” “transgender” ideology, or anti-white discrimination called affirmative action — and they call you, again, names: a sexist, hater, racist, homophobe, Islamophobe. They get you fired and kicked off Twitter.
And if they don’t win this time, if the courts find election fraud on Biden’s part, we will see what we saw in 2016. Their shock troops in the streets. The helmeted black-bloc goons of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, will riot. They will burn. They will loot. They will murder. They will destroy.
Indeed, Biden’s apparent victory last week, Antifa and BLM goons have attacked white Biden voters and even Democrat headquarters in Portland, Oregon. They attacked a Catholic church.
One final example of what 72 million Trump voters now face: “I hate Donald trump and if you like him: I hate you too,” rapper Iggy Azalea says. “Now what.”
Yeah. Now what?
After four years of a never-ending Two Minutes Hate, of 24-7-365 vilification, of a sudden, they want “unity.” No thank you.
There’s no living with people like that. They hate us. They want to kill us. They say so. We should believe them.
And so it is time for a divorce. No renewed vows with the Rev. Biden presiding. No second honeymoon. We just can’t get along. They go their way. We go ours. No blame. No recriminations. They erect their gun-free, oil-free, green Neverland, blissfully uncontaminated by “hate” and all the isms. And we do pretty much what we’re doing now … blissfully removed from their schoolmarmish harping about everything they find wrong with us. And anyway, if we’re as bad as they say, why continue living with us?
And when the leftist whites try to flee their multiracial, multicultural, nonsectarian, gay-friendly, trans-loving abortion-on-demand, socialist totalitarian paradise — just as they flee California and other Blue S**tholes for Red Country now — they will have nowhere to go.
Because we shall build a big beautiful wall.
How to divide the country is open to question. The only imperative is that we separate into two or more parts before the war starts. They get their country. We get ours.
If not, there will be blood.

Every word in this piece is spot on. And as an aside, any Christian who still wants to sing “God bless America” should read your article first. Thank you for writing this.
