There is simply no denying that our nation is more divided today than it ever has been in the modern era.
In fact, it’s possible that the only other period in American history to see such a spectacular cultural schism were the months leading up to the War Between the States some sixteen decades ago. That societal collapse ushered in the bloodiest period in American history – a distinction that still stands today.
If we’re not careful, however, 2019’s animosity could very well send us back over the edge once again.
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway understands this explicitly, and is calling out those who she sees as a threat to our unity. That includes one of Wednesday’s impeachment witnesses.
One of the star witnesses for Congressional Democrats in President Trump‘s impeachment inquiry, Professor Pamela Karlan, should be ashamed of herself for showing such arrogance and looking down on half of America, said Kellyanne Conway on “Fox & Friends” Thursday.
Conway accused Democrats of using Trump’s Ukraine phone call as an excuse to boot him from office, before highlighting Karlan’s comments about conservatives, which were read aloud on Wednesday by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.
The Stanford law professor was quoted as saying, “Liberals tend to cluster more. Conservatives, especially very conservative people, tend to spread out more, perhaps because they don’t even want to be around themselves.”
Conway’s assessment of this political discrimination was simply brutal.
“Let’s stop pretending it has a damn thing to do with the 15 witnesses over two committees, the Democrats have called over the last couple of weeks,” Conway told Fox News. “One, out of those 15 witnesses, has said that he or she has ever talked to the president about Ukraine.
Conway accused Karlan of “look[ing] her nose down” at average Americans and blue-collar workers
“She thinks that you are less than her. And I’ve had it… who the hell are you lady, to look down on half the country?”
With articles of impeachment to be introduced into Congress in the coming days, we can only imagine that this angst will continue to grow if left unchecked.
