President Joe Biden has shelled out executive orders like candy and so far, has installed over two-and-a-half times more than former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton combined.
And yet, the new administration has touted unity, healing and the fragility of democracy. Checks and balances have clearly been miscounted, the bicameral legislature has been grotesquely overridden and Biden is clearly no moderate.
Unity has been irrevocably altered to mean one thought, one mindset and one narrative where all unfavored opinions are shunned and those who speak against the institutions are silenced with the iron fist of censorship. Not only does this set an inescapable precedent, but it will allow for future, “unfavorable” types of speech to be disregarded and set a standard that will only be applied to a select few.
Trumpism is seen as a disease that Washington wants to rid itself of and Biden’s administration is seen as the “panacea.” This is in hopes of manufacturing a utopia where opposing viewpoints are not only discouraged but are punished with impeachment and ostracization, which sounds a lot like George Orwell’s “1984.”
Martin Bormann, a head Nazi Party official, was prescient when he said, “Every educated person is a future enemy.”
The Nazis’ end goal was to create a society where all Germans supported the Nazi regime and the dissemination of propaganda, censorship, control of newspapers and communication. Flash forward to 2021 and big tech platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have the upper hand and are actively shutting down conservative voices, even the former president.
But do we still look to Germans today and cast blame on each of them for the atrocities committed during the Holocaust? Or do we view them as not being at fault for the transgressions of their ancestors? American citizens in this day and age are not responsible for past sins committed through slavery but are responsible for remembering our history and learning from past wrongdoings. Wiping out traces of history that we do not agree with is no way to accomplish this.
Our founders wanted us as a people to be able to criticize the government and allow for all viewpoints to be promulgated — regardless of political ideology. This is why we separated from the grip of Great Britain in the first place. A false sense of security is formed when people are told to think the same and the consequences should not be overlooked, which has led us down the path of a culture shock that this country has never seen. The government was designed to be a necessary evil, not the vehicle through which all is relied upon.
We have come to abhor our country that was established on the concepts of life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and unalienable rights that are God, not government given. This is the unity that we should strive for instead of victimizing our own citizens those that dare to speak against the leftist narrative.
