Has America reached a point of no return? Are we as a country so divided that we are at an impasse? Is there a way back to some sense of normalcy or is the blatant bias we see blasted over all media platforms the “new normal.”
I chose the picture above because, in my opinion, it illustrates perfectly where we are. How do you deal with someone who would publish an image like this? Who would go out of their way to create something so heinous, so despicable? How do you sit down with someone like this and have a conversation?
You cant and thus, you would be at an impasse.
When someone is called a Nazi simply because he or she wants a border wall, how do you reconcile with the accuser?
When Conservatives, Republicans, and Christians are marginalized on google, twitter, and facebook and called fascists for their views how does that promote dialogue?
When conservative, Christian views can be labeled “hate speech” how does that jibe with our first amendment rights?
When a Christian baker refuses to make a cake for a gay couple because it goes against his beliefs why is he called a bigot?
When boys and girls in first grade are subjected to Drag Queen story hour and are being indoctrinated into the gay lifestyle why are those who complain called homophobic?
When conservatives like Ann Coulter are silenced from speaking at our universities how does that enrich the lives of students if there is no alternative voice to the overwhelming liberal ideology that permeates our colleges?
When Planned Parenthood won’t explain the scientific facts concerning abortion how is this ignored and that institution funded by our tax dollars?
When women can accuse someone of molestation decades after the alleged incident and then the accused—like Brent Kavannaugh—are judged guilty by the media and publicly eviscerated, how does that affect our confidence in the rule of law?
When public figures like former FBI director James Comey can stand before a congressional committee and with a straight face say he can’t remember over and over again how does that create confidence in our intelligence agencies?
I think we have reached a point of no return. The left accuses anyone with a conservative view of being  a Nazi, fascists, bigoted, racist, privileged “white man.”
If there is no room for dialogue with respect, and instead name-calling and endless vituperative remarks ensue then an impasse has been reached.
Violence has already erupted against Conservatives and Christians in our cities. What this means is that at some point things might really get out of hand. I will go out on a limb here—I hope I’m wrong—and state that what we may see, in the coming months, is a mass migration of people across our country. We might see states begin to withdraw from the union. People may decide that their beliefs and way of life are being threatened. There are millions of us who are fed up with the swamp that is Washington. “Q” gave us hope for a while but I no longer follow what he says.
There are millions of us who hear these pejorative remarks hurled at us day after day. I for one have grown tired of them.
The following words were penned hundreds of years ago. Are these words more applicable than ever before?
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
