As we have now all discovered from Joe Biden’s presidency, the phoniest/baloney-est declare from liberals is that they’ve a deep want for nationwide unity. There isn’t any unity in compromise, solely in give up to the Left.

On the finish of Sunday’s Dependable Sources, fill-in host John Avlon interviewed the PBS gasbag Ken Burns, asking him about nationwide unity, and he is as phony as Biden. That is CNN, so Avlon calls for unity in exaggerating the January 6 riot:

AVLON: You have made the purpose by way of the hunt for unity, that on the finish of the day, People often can rally collectively when one thing catastrophic has occurred. Typically that is what’s required to focus it on our underlying humanity. And but, the assault on the Capitol on January 6 doesn’t appear to have united us. As an alternative, there’s stays an effort to rewrite even that current historical past. So, what hope do you have got a few path ahead when we have now not been in a position to unite round an assault on our capital, the worst and the primary for the reason that Warfare of 1812?

BURNS: Yeah — it is terrifying. This is without doubt one of the nice crises together with the Civil Warfare, the Melancholy, and the Second World Warfare that we have now in massive measure as a result of issues collapse, the middle can’t maintain, mere entropy is loosed upon the world.

How does anybody examine the January 6 riot to World Warfare II or the Civil Warfare? It is like evaluating Hiroshima to the Portland riots. 

Liberals like to pose that they’re towards “partisan echo chambers.” They really say this with a straight face on CNN….and on PBS. Burns whipped on the conservative media, as standard: “For those who get your information from one echo chamber, you are in harmful hassle risking now within the midst of this Coronavirus — your individual life and the lives of the folks you’re keen on essentially the most, and your mates and your group.”

Burns then uncorked this bizarre lecture about freedom, there’s “private freedom,” which is egocentric, after which there’s “collective freedom,” after we all undergo liberal notions of what should occur: 

BURNS: However let’s keep in mind in America, we have now to parse freedom. There’s freedom, what I need, private freedom, you recognize, which is egocentric. What I need? I need to do what I need to do. And there is our collective freedom, what we want. And we have now all the time been our higher selves, we have now all the time appealed to our higher angels when we have now yielded to that collective what we want, relatively than what I need.

So, when anyone is turned sporting masks into some anti-freedom assertion or taking a vaccine, which is able to save their lives into some anti-freedom, we have misplaced the middle. The middle is just not holding, you recognize, issues will collapse.

The place Burns actually got here aside is attempting to insist “we will disagree” on issues, however we actually cannot. As a result of there’s this big climate-change menace, and you may’t disagree with that. There isn’t any debate. Quibble with the Left a few Inexperienced New Deal, and you are the “Flat Earth Society.”

BURNS: And I do not assume there’s any right- considering American — we will disagree on the way you get issues carried out — what the function of presidency is that I do not assume anyone desires this noble experiment to dissolve simply when we have now in our grasp the chances and the instruments with which to unravel this stuff. And we have now looming forward of us, this big world menace of local weather change that needs to be addressed, and we will not now allow the Flat Earth Society any extra time.
