The greatest trick the Establishment ever pulled was dividing the electorate into fiercely competitive and adversarial factions. The end result is that the people are fighting each other instead of their true enemy. Divide and conquer.
The main theme of traditional Left vs. Right American Politics has been Democrats having their fury trained on Big Businesses and how evil the Private sector is, while Republicans are fixated on the evils of big government.
Each side sees the other as the puppet of their great Satan: Democrats see Republicans as in thrall to big business, Republicans see the Democrats as the party of big government.
And here’s the thing: they’re both right.
But both sides miss the real problem: big business and big government are two sides of the same coin: the Uniparty.
The Uniparty is the unholy alliance of big business and big government.
As long as you’re missing the bigger picture and only focusing on one side, the Uniparty wins.
The great trick is to keep Democrats and Republicans divided and attacking one another instead of the Uniparty.
“But there’s lots of genuinely evil people on the left! We need to fight them!”
That’s true. I’m not saying there aren’t anti-white racists on the left. I’m not saying the abortion lovers aren’t out there and in need of thwarting. I’m not saying Antifa isn’t out there. There are indeed lots of genuinely bad people on the left, and it’s perfectly fine to oppose them and their agenda.
But they’re the minority. The vast majority of Democrats are decent people, albeit deeply misled. They’re all not the nutty, unrepentant lunatics we see on Twitter and on Fox News. Most Democrats aren’t going to bark at you about proper gender pronouns.
Democrats also need to realize Republicans aren’t all Evil Racist Nazis hellbent on killing everyone who isn’t a white Christian. Republicans aren’t all gun-toting inbred hicks.
The real enemy is the Uniparty Machine. It’s the big corporations and the politicians they control. Big business and big government have become one, and that’s the true enemy.
They’re the ones flooding our country with poor immigrants. They’re the ones shipping all the jobs overseas. They’re the ones causing housing bubbles. They’re the ones killing us with opioids and poisonous pharmaceutical drugs. They’re the ones who have decimated black families and inner cities.
Keep your eyes on the prize: the only way we will ever actually defeat and dislodge the corrupt Uniparty is when Americans finally realize who the true enemy is.
As long as we’re fighting each other, we’re not fighting the Uniparty.
