Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

Maybe all the recent talk about this "progressive" movement is just due to the fact that strange political ideas in general have certain things in common, such as an inclination to destroy liberty. It is hard to look at BHO and his minions talk, and draw a direct correlation to Woodrow Wilson. But if we go back farther, it seems much easier to link them all to the advent of Darwinism and a weakened or abandoned faith in God. But what I see in this column is one more sign that it really appears that BHO's reelection, against all historic norms that show it was undeserved, may be the last straw for conservative Americans.

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
