I do not see how incoming U.S. President Joe Biden is going to bring Americans together when his own party is pushing a rather extreme agenda. I have been hearing Democrats saying that we face the threat of “Fascism” from the political right and that they are ready to take up arms and ready to threaten public officials over the last election. The non-sense I am getting from the Democrats is that any and all states may have to remain on indefinite lock downs to “prevent rebellion” and keep us all safe from the corona virus.

On the other side, so many Republican and Donald Trump supporters believe that Communism is coming. They believe that the presidential election was stolen, that the Democrats, the Communists and Anarchists as well as the Illuminati conspired to put in the person of their choice and that they will come after all the guns which gun owners have. These people fear that the government will violate any and all U.S. Supreme Court rulings guaranteeing all gun rights. Many of these people fear the government under Biden will send in secret police to take peoples’ guns and shut down churches and make America an atheist country.

With so many Americans viewing themselves as their own worst enemies, it is no wonder in my mind that we as a people are much further apart than we were four years ago. With both parties pushing extreme agendas, I find it highly unlikely that many elected Republicans will acknowledge that Biden won the election. In fact, too many people who support Trump still cannot accept that Biden won and that all U.S. states are certifying that Biden won. This will in turn lead to Democrats calling for more restrictions and extra-legal powers in what they will see as “combating an internal threat.” This can all plunge the United States into a serious internal conflict where Americans are pitted against Americans. I see this happening right now. In the words of the late Rodney King, “can’t we all just get along?”
