We are living during a time that will forever go down in history as one of the most tumultuous and divisive political environments the United States has ever seen. There are clear lines of separation that are hard to ignore and it seems as if the American people have lost their way on exactly how to communicate through disagreements. Liberals have often led the battle in dictating what is heard in the media, what’s promoted and praised through entertainment, and even which direction swing votes will take during critical elections.
This is no mistake and should not be taken lightly— given the fact that you are potentially being blinded by the glitter of its majestic rule. The Democratic Party has always professed to operate under the guise of tolerance, equality, and fairness, yet we are beginning to see a trend that leads to a nation terribly divided. The divide and conquer tactics used among Leftists is truly nothing new; however, these schemes are incredibly powerful and effective if they go unchecked. Let’s take a moment to recognize just a few of the deceptions used by the Tolerant Left, shall we?
- The Blame Game: Detained Immigrant Children
Democrats are currently running to save their positions within Congress and will do anything to ensure their survival. To assist in their turning red seats blue, they have taken the opportunity to use Donald Trump as a scapegoat to cover up the fact that most of the decisions made are really practices that were followed by president’s Obama and Clinton. Take the latest upheaval on immigration detainment practices, for example. The U.S. government had one 100-bed facility in central Pennsylvania and added three larger facilities in Texas and New Mexico that held families by the thousands.
Children were separated and Obama faced legal challenges that hindered his desire to continue detaining mothers and children indefinitely. This led to a ruling by a federal judge in California stating that the Obama administration was violating the Flores case—being unlawful to keep families detained for longer than 20 days. Considering the fact that most of the children were unaccounted for administratively, they were eventually discovered to have been passed through human trafficking. The facilities for immigrants (that separated children from their families at the border) were established and used by Clinton, as well. The far Left has convinced the public that Trump is the evil culprit who has created such a monstrosity.
- Black Leaders: Political Puppets Jumping Left Wing Hoops
Maxine Waters, John Lewis, and a host of other Blacks within the Black Congressional Caucus have made it a point to push every political button that their fingers can hit to ensure the Left agenda of divisiveness. California Rep. Maxine Waters made speeches to the public on how they should harass any person from the Trump administration publicly. This has led to a number of political figures, as well as anyone who dares to wear a red hat that says Make America Great Again, to become taunted and berated by citizens throughout the nation.
Black leaders who currently fight publicly for the children of individuals who chose to come into America illegally and who willfully take the chance of losing their children to do so. Black leaders who promised those that they represent within the black communities that they would fight to ensure better housing, improved education and improved health care, are now leaving that community standing with their hands out and pants down. A Pew Research analysis of Census data found that of the 11 million Black children living in the country, 38%, or 2 out of 5 black children, live in poverty.
Additionally, 1 out of 3 Hispanic children who are legal citizens of this country are currently living in poverty. Where are the representatives that promised those children a fair opportunity to live, grow and thrive within an environment that is safe, healthy, and flourishing? This is only one of the examples of how the Black leaders are pushing an agenda that overrides the populous they promised to serve.
- The Media: Pushing One-Sided News for Emotional Appeal
The media has continued to play the American people by siding with the Left and pushing the idea of “tolerance” and what that should look like. Tolerance has become anything that is generally accepted by the mass population as fair, just or good. This is not for the media to decide, yet they have taken an active role in this position. News has continued to push opinions rather than simply sharing facts that would allow the audience to draw their own conclusion.
Instead of making up our minds on which political policies work best for us as a people, we are being told through emotional commentary what we should tolerate on a daily basis. The Washington Examiner published an article attempting to explain why it uses the term “progressive” whenever it describes the Left end of the Democratic Party. They actually used the entire article to explain why they refuse to justify themselves on protecting the Left. They did, however, make it a point to state that the word “liberal” was a positive term, related to “liberty” in their opinion. I think you get the idea.
Living within a society of free and independent thinkers would be great if this was something that wasn’t consistently being manipulated by others. The moment you look at the media and see that people are being harassed for their beliefs, their political affiliation, or their opinion…well, that’s a sign that there is something going on beneath the surface that is feeding the division of all mankind. Only when we find our way back to listening to our own voices, believing in the guidance of our own instincts, and finding our connection to one another will we become unified, once again. It can happen. You just have to believe.
