Phony Unity, Mitt Romney
Mitt Romney renewed the familiar charge last week that President Trump has been dividing Americans rather than uniting them. But it is not Mr. Trump who is dividing America.

When Barack Obama commandeered one seventh of the U.S. economy in the name of making health insurance available to a small minority of Americans who did not have it, and he did so through political chicanery, with no support from the Republicans, and against the wishes of the majority of Americans, that was divisive.

.

When Mr. Obama tried to force schools to allow males who “identified as” females to use women’s bathrooms (and vice versa), and he did so with no public debate of the matter and in the complete absence of credible scientific evidence that a biological male can in any psychologically healthy sense claim to identify as a female, that was divisive.

When white students at our best colleges (and even recruits to the U.S. Army) are taught that they have enjoyed undeserved advantages because they happen to have been born white in a nation founded and peopled mostly by whites, that’s divisive. And when our political and economic institutions are vilified as expressions of “white supremacy” because they were developed predominantly by the white majority, that’s divisive.

When Colin Kaepernick intrudes on our Sunday recreations to let us know that, in his estimation, the freest and most prosperous nation in the history of the world does not merit his respect, that’s divisive.

And when, through “sanctuary” enactments, many cities and even the State of California seek to thwart the enforcement of valid and necessary laws regulating entry into the United States, that’s divisive.

Unity is possible in America only when there is fundamental agreement as to what this country is and ought to be. But such agreement no longer exists, and this is the fault not of those who would preserve our commitment to individual rights, limited government, and private property, but of those who since the 1960s have sought to refashion America in the name of an impoverishing, soul-destroying, state-managed “equality.”

Pretending that we are still one unified people, as Mr. Romney and the Republican establishment do, is worse than useless

Pretending that we are still one unified people, as Mr. Romney and the Republican establishment do, is worse than useless. For two generations the leftist juggernaut has rolled across our cultural landscape, like the Panzers across France in 1940, sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly, but never backwards. The Left owe their success in no small part to the failure of men like Mitt Romney first to identify the American Left as inimical to everything the U.S. should represent and then to take a principled, uncompromising stand against them.

Alone among the political leaders of this nation, President Trump has had the courage to say “No more.” He has identified the enemy unequivocally, and he has sounded a long-overdue rallying cry to a people besieged from within by Marxists masquerading as moralists. Mr. Trump is president precisely because he has refused to remain silent for the sake of a phony unity.
