Rope a Dope … Submission is not Unity

Rope a Dope

Biden’s call for unity harkens back to Muhamad Ali’s Rope a Dope strategy against Joe Frazier. Americans are right at this point to have some serious trust issues. Calls for unity in our polarized time are out of place and at best ill-timed.

Look we know Leftist history. Biden is a dementia patient parading as a Leftist. Because he is a dementia patient, perhaps it is better to go back to former President Obama. Remember him? He was the Leftist pledging American reunification.

Obama did that right up until he began treating Tea Partyers as the enemy. He sanctioned unspeakable threats and very real actions against his political opponents. If memory serves the reference to the Tea Party was as crypto-racists. Everything was hope and change, peaches and cream, right up until the time it wasn’t.

In order to earn our trust, Joe Biden has to call his own side out for raising the temperature. He steadfastly refuses to do even that. It is a measure of his insincerity. He hasn’t called out Black Lives Matter (BLM) for the suggestion that America is systemically racist. Instead, he cheers it on.

It is all about control and submission

He hasn’t condemned Antifa. Instead, he has deemed it a philosophy rather than a dangerous movement. And he hasn’t said a word about the continuing physical attacks on Trump supporters. Biden’s unity message has to begin at home. Joe, if you cannot get buy-in from your own side, presumably that is where you are strongest. Then, how can the opposition trust you or that there will be follow through?

Will Joe Biden chide former first lady Michelle Obama for declaring that 70 million Americans “voted for the status quo, even when it meant supporting lies, hate, chaos, and division…”? The betting in Las Vegas is that our bones will bleach in the desert sun before Biden tells Hillary, “Trump supporters aren’t deplorables.” What do you think? Are you taking the bet? Rope a dope may be a strategy but who’s buying in?

Biden’s unity isn’t a recognition of what we have in common. On the contrary; it’s a demand that we, conservatives and classic liberals, shut up, sit down and tow the Biden Party, the socialist line. How can we achieve unity? Well, we could do so through recognition of other points of view.

That would be through a determination to understand those who think differently than we do. Wow, what a concept, it has been described as tolerance. The other way to go about getting unity is through ideological domination. Today’s Democrats are Leftists. It’s rather obvious which path they have chosen.

Are Democrats as good as their word?

All we have to do is remember what has come before. Or, we could listen to what they are saying. They are people like AOC, the Squad, and Robert Reich. Social ostracization is one of their most powerful tools. Why would they change and disarm now?

But know this; Americans can only come together when we share a common philosophy, history, and culture. Democrats have spent over a century attempting to tear away those commonalities. They favor coalitional interest-group politics. They’ve declared American philosophy racist from inception.

Democrats or the Leftists in the coalition masquerading as Democrats are declaring American history a litany of brutalities. They are declaring American culture bigotry embodied. Now they profess to want unity? The unity of absolute victory, perhaps. This means absolute intolerance and total submission. What they represent is the end of western civilization. They want to rope a dope just like Muhamad Ali.

It’s their desire for monolithic control which will be their undoing. Unless Biden is serious about unity and he gives none of the appearances of that. Until he’s willing to cross the aisle and recognize the humanity of those with whom he disagrees and he gives none of the appearances of that.

Unless he first calls out those on his own side who won’t then acts to bring them to heel and he gives none of the appearances of that. Well, Biden’s term is likely to be as contentious, polarizing and ultimately unsuccessful as it is likely to be short; based solely on his diminished mental capacity.
