The reason Liberals and Conservatives can’t really see eye to eye anymore is because we live in different states of reality.
I recently saw a video highlighting this difference by showcasing clips of unmasked people in California and Florida grocery stores.
In California, if you walk into a store to buy food and are not wearing a mask, you may be hounded by employees and other shoppers, and harassment will intensify while management slips of to call the police.
In Florida, it’s business as usual, with people going about their day. No problems, no yelling…just quiet, civilized people doing what they should.
Watching the two play out side-by-side is completely bizarre.
Two different realities…and it’s not limited to mask-related issues.
Of particular concern is the growing divide on the approach to studying and applying history.
For some reason, the Left seems to think that it is completely acceptable to people of the past to today’s cultural standards…and somebody from America’s history failed to live up to the morality of the 21st Century, then the natural thing to do is to erase them from memory.
The Villainization Of White Europeans
We’ve seen this with the villainization and demonization of Christopher Columbus most prominently. The Left now sees this man as a genocidal colonizing maniac rather than an adventurer who made a significant discovery and behaved in a way consistent with the standards of his time, however wrong they may have been.
What the Left doesn’t realize that, if they were alive during those times, they’d have acted in the same manner, if not WORSE. That was just society operated.
So, whenever a Leftist starts talking about “righting the wrongs” of the past, it’s something that we should all ridicule. There is nothing less logical than trying to change the past.
That’s why people collectively rolled their eyes when Vice President Kamala Harris vowed to address the “shameful past” of America’s European settlers, claiming these early Americans “ushered in a wave of devastation” for the Natives when they first started arriving over 500 years ago.
Of course, the VP was speaking to (or pandering to, depending on how you want to look at it) the National Congress of American Indians 78th Annual Convention, so Harris was obviously trying to appeal to her audience.
The event took place the day after Columbus Day—which has also been formally recognized as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” by President Joe Biden, as if that’s going to change the fact that a White European discovered something that changed the course of history.
It was because of Christopher Columbus that America (not the continent, Lefties, the country) exists – and it’s because of America that many people around the world get the chance to live in a democratic society, ensuring that their voices matter.
However, Kamala Harris doesn’t see that reality, which is why she SLAMMED the European migration as an evil that needs to be made right rather than a historical event to learn from.
A Wave Of Devastation
She said, “Since 1934, every October, the United States has recognized the voyage of the European explorers who first landed on the shores of the Americas. But that is not the whole story. That has never been the whole story. Those explorers ushered in a wave of devastation for Tribal nations, perpetrating violence, stealing land, and spreading disease.”
Is that all the European settlers did?
Because according to our records, European settlers also shaped the world we’re living in now.
Without those White European settlers, without the Red Indigenous People, without the Black Africans, without the Brown Mexicans and South Americans, without the Yellow Asians…without any of them, America would not exist.
And the fact that Harris wants to demonize ONE of these pieces of the American puzzle shows just how racist and evil the Left’s agenda truly is.
Harris continued, “We must not shy away from this shameful past, and we must shed light on it and do everything we can to address the impact of the past on Native communities today. Native Americans are more likely to live in poverty, to be unemployed, and often struggle to get quality healthcare and to find affordable housing.”
And then she hit them with the sell for the whopping $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill, telling them it will help the Native people of America and revealing that she doesn’t really CARE about them at all. She just wants their support so they can get that $3.5 trillion bill passed.
It’s a shame, really…
In order to try and drum up support for this bill, she has to play into stereotypes to do so. She has to make it an “us vs. them” between the Native Americans and White Americans in order to get them over to her side.
She is living in a different reality…
She thinks that by passing this bill, we can “right the wrongs of the past.”
But we can’t.
The only thing we can do is create hope that coming generations will be better than we are.
The past is the past, and there is no changing it.
Harris knows this…
But she lives in a reality where the only thing that matters is the agenda – and anything she says, even if it’s a lie is permissible because the ends justify the means.
That’s what makes the Left so dangerous.
And that’s why we have to take them to task every time they do or say something stupid.
“”If the white man wants to live in peace with the Indian, he can live in peace… Treat all men alike. Give them all the same law. Give them all an even chance to live and grow. All men were made by the same Great Spirit Chief. They are all brothers. The Earth is the mother of all people, and all people should have equal rights upon it…” – White Elk
