And the first black president, through his hit man Eric Holder, also a negro, has taken American black/white race relations back to pre-1960 conditions. Holder has turned black panther pole agitators loose and has advanced such racially inflammatory proposals as, "black students need to be exempted from discipline to 'compensate' them for past discrimination." And more recently, not content to have dispatched FBI agitators to the scene, Holder jetted out to Ferguson Missouri to personally fan the flames of racial discord.
And the President's idea of reaching across the aisle is to take to his public pulpit and vociferously blame Republicans for everything from the poor performance of the micro-managed economy to the Ebola outbreak in Africa.
The Obama regime has even managed to drive a wedge between American men and women by waging a specious campaign against some non-existent "war on women."
But while Obama has brought the use of divisiveness as a political weapon to a new low, divisiveness in itself is not a bad thing. It is, in fact, a critical component of a free and dynamic society. It is a truism worthy of being memorized that any human proposal for change is proffered with malicious intent and needs to be resisted.
Current political propriety focuses on consensus. Compromise is lauded as the holy grail of negotiation, and adhering to one's principles is derided as being recalcitrant. But recalcitrance is necessary in a healthy society.
Christians cannot compromise with an ISIS, whose objective is the decapitation of all Christians, and republicans can never compromise with democrats whose objective is the destruction of the republic.
