the Founding documents. They despise muscular American foreign
policy. They hate freedom-based American domestic policy. They
love dictators — the Castros, the Stalins, the Brezhnevs, the
Gorbachevs, the Maos. They envy their total power.
So I sigh when I hear Ohio Gov. John Kasich, after winning his
home state GOP primary on March 15, tell Wolf Blitzer on CNN,
“We want to bring the country together and not divide this country
any more. That’s why this was such a big victory tonight … because
we know that we need to unite this country and be Americans and
not spend our time dividing people in this country.”
It’s typical political happy talk, but sorry,
this whole notion of bringing the country
together is bunk. We’re way past that. We’re
never going to unify with liberal Democrats.
There’s no candidate that can forge a kumba-
ya. It’s fatuous. The truth is, liberals aren’t the
slightest bit interested in unity. The left does
not want to reach common ground with us.
To them, we are enemies. Worse, they see us
as the Gestapo, Nazis. We are what stands in
their way. And they will roll over us, and all
we hold dear, by any means necessary.
Traditional America, and traditional
American culture, is under siege. We can’t join
with the other side to preserve it; they have no
interest in that. They want to tear it down!
This is a fight between socialism and capitalism,
freedom versus tyranny. There is no compromise. Because there is no common ground. So
don’t believe any talk about linking arms and
unifying. There is only the battle.
I recently had a caller, a Trump critic, who
told me she was looking for a GOP candidate
who would “unite all Americans.” She wanted
to re-experience the solidarity she remembered
from the 1980s, and she cited Ronald Reagan
and his landslide victories as bringing people
Here’s my question: Then why aren’t we
still together? What the hell happened? Reagan
won two landslides, we had the greatest economy the country’s
known in our lifetimes, low unemployment, burgeoning job growth,
personal wealth that was going like crazy. We brought down the
Soviet Union. Why are we still not unified?
The left tore that unity apart. Destroyed it. Even as Reagan was bringing Americans together, Democrats in Congress were aligning with Soviet communist client states in Central
America and Grenada and wherever else they could to undermine
the President. Teddy Kennedy actually traveled to the Soviet
Union and told Kremlin leaders, “Do not fall for anything Reagan
tells you, he’s a deceiver.” They sabotaged Reagan for eight years,
hating him with a white-hot hatred.
It was vicious. If the country had been brought together, and
during those eight years had actually learned that it was conserva-
tism and Reaganism that led to all of that bounty and the end of
the Soviet Union, the Democrats would have been relegated to
the dustbin of history. But just four short years later, Bill and
Hillary Clinton rode into the White House on a message decrying
“the 12 years of Reagan and Bush” and “the Decade of Greed.”
So we had the greatest economic circumstances in our lifetimes,
and the Democrats were not interested. They didn’t want to par-
ticipate, because it left them out of power. In the midst of abun-
dance, in the midst of economic prosperity like we hadn’t known
since the postwar boom, the Democrat Party did everything it
could to tear it down — and succeeded.
Unity sounds wonderful. Sororities love it; fraternities pretend
to love it so they can get inside the sororities. But it’s nothing
more than a dream. This is a world governed by the aggressive use
of power, the aggressive use of force, and to maintain both, you
have to do battle.
The left has long been on the march, while every conservative
organization and media — including my radio program — have
been devoted to stopping them. It is long past time for the right to
be the aggressor.
It’s freedom versus tyranny. There is no
compromise, because there is no common
ground. There is only the battle.
