Stronger Together (or the Useful Lie)

It’s as predictable as Bill’s Orgy Island romp. Hillary’s acceptance speech is being praised by the MSM and Democratic establishment. But with anything leftish and Democratic, consumers are advised to read the fine print. Hillary’s unity cry is just more sleight-of-hand on behalf of her side’s relentless quest to remake America… to make America leftish and not America.

If you want to join with Hillary and her ilk to be “stronger together,” you’ll need to buy in to the left’s and Democratic elite’s bill of particulars. Hillary, with exquisite arrogance -- and black hole hubris -- wants you to submit, because her worldview is the worldview. Her agenda is the agenda. You unite with her on her terms. Then all is bliss.     

Paul Waldman, writing at The Week, gives us a feminized male’s take on Hillary’s speech:

There was an implication buried just under the surface of the argument Clinton made in her speech, one that went something like this: I want you to like me and believe in me and invest in me, just as you have with other presidential candidates. But if you have your doubts, that's OK. You don't have to love me desperately and unreservedly. You don't have to think I'm perfect. You don't have to write songs about me, or paint pictures of me, or make up ironic memes about me. Because it's not really about me.

No, it’s really about swallowing, hook, line, and sinker, the baloney that Hillary is the selfless, giving woman -- the benevolent mother wanting to heal the wounds of her fractious American brood. Who hankers to nurture and herd us into a village of boundless love and genderless-hood. 

It’s the stuff of reinvention that Waldman and the MSM are peddling -- instant, one-night, reinvention. Presto! Why, just forget Hillary’s often smarmy history. Forget the bulldozing ambition, the sharklike calculation, the edgy-bitchy stare. Forget about the character assassinations of Bill’s -- many -- girlfriends when they got in Bubba’s and Hill’s way. Forget about her futures dealings. Forget Rose Law Firm records shenanigans.

Forget that the president she served -- Barack Obama -- is leaving America more fractured than when he became president. Race relations are tattered and envenomed. Cops are being gunned down by angry blacks. Forget the under- and unemployment of working and middle class Americans. Forget that the Middle East is a dangerous, bloody mess -- and much of that thanks to policies Hillary pursued as Secretary of State.

Forget Hillary’s private email servers that served her obvious breeches of national security when at the State Department. Forget Benghazi. Forget the Wall Street cronyism. Forget every indication that the Clinton Foundation is a pay-to-play vehicle. Forget much! Erase Hillary’s record prior to the night of July 28, 2016. It worked in the old Soviet Union. Airbrush the photos and reinvent the person of Hillary Clinton when it helps advance her fortunes, Democrats’ fortunes, and the professional left’s fortunes. Forget, you flyover country masses, while the party’s elites wink and nod.

“Stronger together,” says the ethically challenged lady from Chappaqua. Stronger together, unless you’re an unborn child. (Abortion tends to disunite babies.) Stronger together, unless you’re a Christian or Jew who practices his faith. Stronger together, unless you believe in traditional marriage and family.

Stronger together if you’re an illegal, particularly one who welcomes government dependency. Stronger together if you’re a Muslim immigrant or refugee and you bring a loyalty to unreformed Islam. Yours is a religion of blood and conquest – nah! It’s a faith of love and fraternity (women have their place). Stronger together, gays, though – Shh! – you might get shot to pieces by those unreformed Muslims at nightclubs. Unity permits for some collateral damage, huh?

Stronger together if you pervert the truth. “Guns kill.” Jihadists in San Bernardino, Orlando, Paris, and Nice are just swarthy versions of James Holmes or Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold. Or a homophobe – or a repressed homosexual. Never jihadists, never unconventional soldiers loyally serving their religion.     

Writes Pat Buchanan about the recent party conventions:

Given the distance between the two halves of America, given the contempt in which each seems to hold the other, we can probably drop from the Pledge of Allegiance the word “indivisible,” right after the Philadelphia Democrats succeed in cutting out the words, “under God.”

And then this insight from Buchanan:

From the podium in Philadelphia, we hear the word “love.” But in interviews, Democratic activists invoke terms of hate, such as racist, fascist, homophobe, misogynist and sexist to describe the Cleveland Republicans.

Would the party of Philadelphia accept a President Trump?

Would the party of Cleveland accept President Clinton?

Hard to believe. Divided we stand. So, where do we go?

Where do we go? Through a dark and tumultuous stretch in American history. Destination uncertain.
