On Saturday evening, presumptive president-elect Joe Biden delivered a victory speech to the nation that called for healing for the nation. He said, “I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify, who doesn’t see red states and blue states, only sees the United States.”
Exactly one minute after Biden finished delivering his poorly-timed speech – it interrupted the NBC-televised college football game between No. 1 Clemson and No. 4 Notre Dame for over an hour of real time – CNN Communication’s Twitter page released a video echoing the sentiment in Biden’s speech. The video proclaimed that “Our trust has been broken – in our leaders, institutions and even some of our friends. Now more than ever we need to listen, to learn from one another, and to rebuild our bonds.”
While I am all for our leaders and media outlets promoting messages of unity within our country, I can not help but be angered at the blatant disregard for the hypocrisy that politicians and media outlets on the Left have conjured up over the past four years.
Since Donald Trump was elected president in 2016, the media immediately propagated stories about Trump colluding with Russia to win the election and called for his impeachment. With no evidence of him scheming with the Kremlin, the media dedicated vast amounts of resources and bombarded the Americans with blatant lies that the Trump won an election with the help of a foreign nation.
And it didn’t stop there. Senator Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and countless other politicians on Capital Hill tarnished the presidents reputation, calling for their cohorts in the U.S House of Representatives and the Senate to prevent Trump’s pro-American policies of border protection, gun rights, defunding abortion and countless others from being enacted. At every major turn, Trump faced opposition that few presidents in our country’s history have seen.
This year, the division they caused reached unthinkable proportions. As the country navigated its way through the COVID-19 pandemic, Trump received blame for everything bad that happened: a rising death or case count in specific states, a lack of ventilators, etc. Biden even called Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic “almost criminal.”
Furthermore, while the country remained in civil unrest as violent protests raged across the country in the wake of black citizens dying in supposedly “racially motivated” police, the media portrayed every single one of these radicals as peaceful protestors who were simply taking up the call of social equality for all individuals. In reality, their actions heightened tensions and further divided Americans into categories of white cop against black man, powerful against powerless – all while condoning and naming violent protests as “peaceful demonstrations.”
Now that Biden has won the presidential election, they want to make it seem as though they are the savior for America that Trump never was.
This absurd and disgusted. Not only is God the only one who can heal our land, but the sincerity of their claims to be unifiers is suspects because they have spent so much time dividing our country over the past fours that I find it hard to believe that they are all of a sudden concerned with unity.
This a new and disgusting level of hypocrisy that should make Americans reel in disgust.
