The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

Just when you think the Democrats' trained hamsters in the mainstream media can't get any more biased, any more strident, or any more dishonest, they up the ante. After Donald Trump's July 4th address at Mount Rushmore, the hamsters rushed to characterize the speech as "dark" and "devisive" when it was actually nothing more than a typical Independence Day address that also happened to castigate the Left-wing mobs whose hatred of America is so obvious, it's almost palpable.

Divisive? Mr. Trump’s speech was certainly direct, in his typical style. But it was only divisive if you haven’t been paying attention to the divisions now being stoked on the political left across American institutions. Mr. Trump had the temerity to point out that the last few weeks have seen an explosion of “cancel culture—driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees.”

Describing this statement of fact as “divisive” proves his point. Newspaper editors are being fired over headlines and op-eds after millennial staff revolts. Boeing CEO David Calhoun last week welcomed the resignation of a communications executive for opposing—33 years ago when he was in the military—women in combat. The Washington Post ran an op-ed this weekend urging that the name of America’s first President be struck from Washington and Lee University.

Any one of these events would be remarkable, but together with literally thousands of others around the country they represent precisely what Mr. Trump describes—a left-wing cultural revolution against traditional American values of free speech and political tolerance. And he called for Americans not to cower but to oppose this assault:

“We must demand that our children are taught once again to see America as did Reverend Martin Luther King, when he said that the Founders had signed ‘a promissory note’ to every future generation. Dr. King saw that the mission of justice required us to fully embrace our founding ideals. . . . He called on his fellow citizens not to rip down their heritage, but to live up to their heritage.”

Contrast that with the New York Times’s 1619 project, which derides America’s founding in 1776 and replaces it with a history that distills the country into a slave-owning enterprise that remains racist to the core. Who is really stoking division and a culture war?

It particularly rich to hear the hamsters suggest that Trump is "divisive" when they have worked tirelessly to divide the nation for the past 4 years. Projection anyone?

Their contempt for those who reject their brand of political correctness is obvious. 

Their suggestion that every white person is a racist or has succeeded in life only because of their "privilege" is intellectually dishonest and morally repugnant. 

Their attempt to erase history is reprehensible.

And their tacit support of mobs who loot, burn, and commit violence* is about as "dark" as anything Trump has ever done.

They're confident that they're gaining supporters, afterall, the polls tell them so. But the polls also told them that Trump's last opponent would destroy him in the 2016 election. 

Whistling through the graveyard, they keep telling us and themselves that this isn't 2016. They're right. It much, much worse ... for them.

Pushback is coming.

*  Just this past weekend in Atlanta, what the hamsters characterized as a "peaceful protest" devolved into violence when an 8-year old African American girl was shot and killed. BLM is silent on the event. So is Antifa. And the hamsters look the other way. Talk about "dark."
