Victor Davis Hanson Has a Thanksgiving Warning About a Cultural and Geographic Divide
Victor Davis Hanson Has a Thanksgiving Warning About a Cultural and Geographic Divide BY STACEY LENNOX for PJMedia
We are fortunate to have some truly great thinkers in the United States. Unfortunately, almost none of them enter our political class. And they certainly don’t slink through the halls of our bureaucratic agencies. Luckily, they can still appear on some platforms and share their thoughts and knowledge with us. Academic and author Victor Davis Hanson did just that last night on Tucker Carlson Tonight.
Host Tucker Carlson took note of the increasing rhetoric about how to deal with President Trump and his supporters after he is no longer in office. He talked about the Trump Accountability Project and tweets from Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Then he spotlighted an MSNBC appearance by Washington Post “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin. In it, she talked about the president and his supporters as people who need to be shunned and basically destroyed:
What we should be doing is shunning these people. Shunning, shaming these people is a statement of moral indignation. These people are not fit for polite society.
I think it’s absolutely abhorrent that institution of higher learning, any news organization or any entertainment organization that has a news outlet would hire these people.
It’s not only that Trump has to lose, but that all his enablers have to lose. We have to collectively in essence burn down the Republican Party.
Rubin seems super concerned about a political party that will hardly welcome her back to tell them how to move forward. Hanson explained the current moment and how we got here:
I think what you are referring to is that sometime in the 21st century, we had these perfect storms of globalized capital pouring into our two coasts, fifty million people that were not born in the United States residing here, many of them under illegal auspices. Many of them under the idea the melting pot is through and salad-bowl identity politics are arrived.
