Identity Politics Is Destroying Our Nation

It is hard not to turn on the TV and hear a story predicated on race, religion, national origin, or sexual orientation.  Instead of one America, the National Socialists, Fake News, Deep State bureaucracies and the 100 largest global companies in the US, including Big Tech, are attempting to divide our country into our people's components.  In the process, they are dividing us like never before since the Civil War and in many ways worse.  

The Civil War was North against the South, Free against Slave States and that was pretty much it.  Today, it is men versus women, Whites versus all peoples of color,  rich versus poor, heterosexuals versus homosexuals of numerous variations, citizens versus illegal aliens,  red versus blue states and the list goes on and on.  Frankly, I am sick of it.  

We need to go back to the melting pot concept that made America great.  Peoples of all races, religions, national origins and sexual orientations came together to build the greatest nation in human history.  We did it together not be dividing our nation, but by uniting our peoples.  Was everything perfect?  Of course not.  Aside from dealing with the Civil War to free the slaves, we suffered 100 years of Jim Crow that resulted in terrible discrimination against Blacks and even murder both at the hands of the Democrat Party in the South.  Various immigrant groups experienced terrible discrimination. Native Americans had their lands stolen from them.  All of these things were horrible and yet we came together to defeat Fascism and Communism.  

We should teach children the Great, Good, Bad and Ugly about American and World History.  No chapter should be left out of the story as long as we also teach the Great and the Good.  The emphasis today seems to be about national hatred on the basis of identity politics that is destroying our nation.  It has to stop because it will lead to the dissolution of the United States.  We can't let that happen.  Too many lives have been sacrificed defending our freedoms.  We can't give up on our country.  And, we can't let the radical left destroy our nation.
