A Cold Civil War
This is a war not over the size of government or taxes, but over the American way of life.
Today we find ourselves living amidst a Cold Civil War. But we have no real generals. A war without generals is no war at all. There is no liberty or death, only death, the death of our once cherished republic. Leading Republicans who should be our generals fight battles, sometimes with spirit, but they don’t seem to see the war in its entirety, particularly its cultural aspects.
This is a war not over the size of government or taxes, but over the American way of life. The war is between those who salute the flag, and those who take a knee. Those who believe that America is built on freedom, and those who believe America is built on racism. Those who are convinced that America is inherently good, and those who are convinced that America is evil. These differences are too large to bridge. This is what makes it a war. In this case, a Cold Civil War.
Winning a war requires two fundamental understandings. First, you must understand that you are, in fact, in a war. War time requires very different rhetoric, strategy and people than peace time. Second, you must understand your enemy, what it wants and how it goes about getting what it wants. What our enemy wants is the destruction of the American way of life. It goes about it by trying to force everyone to say “America is systemically racist.” If it can convince us of this falsehood, it will be well on its way to overturning the American way of life. Every time Joe Biden accuses America of being systemically racist, he is, though he doesn’t know it, calling for the overthrow of the American way of life.
