Once upon a time America was a homogeneous culture. That didn’t mean that we always got along, as evidenced by the Civil War. But it meant that we had certain commonalities, we shared the same values and beliefs. We were Americans, and proud of it. But somewhere along the way things began to change. What started as a small cultural divide has blossomed into a deep chasm of two competing worldviews.

Events in recent days have highlighted this widening rift between Americans. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and her family were booted from a restaurant simple because of her political and religious beliefs. Her family continued to be harassed as they relocated to a nearby restaurant. Likewise, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was harassed from a restaurant. Ironically, one of her harassers actually works for the Justice Department. And in Florida, attorney general Pam Bondi was harassed at a movie theater. To fan the flames, Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters has called for even more harassment of Trump administration officials. These are but a few examples of the increasingly intolerant Left.

At its core it is a Tale of Two Americas. In one America are people who are patriotic, and believe the United States to be inherently good. They believe in the principles of the Constitution, and revere the wisdom of the Founding Fathers. They believe in moral absolutes, and that life is sacred. They believe in limited government, with separation of powers. They believe in immigration, but not illegal immigration. And most importantly, they believe in freedom.

In the other America are people who want to fundamentally change the country. They see America as inherently evil and the Founders as racists and bigots. They believe that the Constitution is a living document that should change with the times. They believe in moral relativism, and that abortion is a right.  They believe in big government, and the concentration of powers. They believe in open borders, and are against securing it. And most importantly, they believe in control.

In these two Americas are two groups of people, with two diverging points of view, who want to take the country in two very different directions. We no longer are a united nation, but a nation that is increasingly antagonistic toward itself. How did we get to this point? The seeds of this cultural divide were sown more than a century ago by Leftist Progressives.

As with all bad ideas, it began with Marx. In the aftermath of World War 1, the Marxist revolution prophesied by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels never materialized. The Marxist intelligentsia came up with a new strategy… cultural Marxism. In the words of the late great Andrew Bartbreit, “Politics is downstream from culture”. Andrew understood the power of the culture in shaping not only politics, but everything else. The cultural Marxists understood this too, and have used it to great effect.

The goal of cultural Marxism is the same as classical Marxism, to undermine Western culture. This is done by denigrating the West and undermining traditional (Christian) values. Their first great success came with the counterculture movement of the 1960s, the effects of which we are still living with today. In the 1990s a brand of cultural Marxism, Political Correctness, began to take root. The goals of Political Correctness are the same as cultural Marxism, but with an additional target: non-liberal white people, in particular white males. Increasing, PC culture has infected every institution and facet of our lives.

Cultural Marxism and its offspring, Political Correctness, represent the greatest threat of our generation. Author William S. Lind stated it this way: “For the first time in our history, Americans have to be fearful of what they say, of what they write, and of what they think. They have to be afraid of using the wrong word, a word [considered] offensive or insensitive, or racist, sexist, or homophobic.... [Unless it is defeated, Political Correctness] will eventually destroy everything that we have ever defined as our freedom and our culture.”

Roman statesman and philosopher Marcus Tullius Cicero warned us long ago of the threat of the enemy within: “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

Similar words were echoed by Abraham Lincoln nearly two thousand years later: “How then shall we perform it?--At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?-- Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!--All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide. - Abraham Lincoln's Lyceum Address, 1838.”

The Tale of Two Americas is really a story about the Sons of Liberty and the Sons of Marx, fighting for the heart and soul of America. At stake is our very way of life, and the future of our children and their children. Coming back from this precipice won’t be easy, nor will it happen instantly. We didn’t get to this point overnight, and it isn’t going to change overnight. But it is a fight worth fighting. It’s not a war fought with guns and bullets, but with ideas and it begins in the home teaching our values to the next generation. In the words of Ronald Reagan: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” Remember his words well as you celebrate this Fourth of July.

Excellent post! I take heart, though, that America will survive the onslaught of liberalism.  I do believe that God put Donald Trump, for all his faults, in a position to lead America in the right direction.  In that task, Donald Trump is not disappointing God  or us.  Keep writing my friend.  If we do not of this subversion, we would be more likely to succumb to it!

I've thought of this too...being split into two countries, I hope not. OUR President is only a man, how much can he take? George soros is playing with our lives and he could care less about any  of us. His motive is greed, money and power!

Yes excellent post, but lets put the blame where it belongs.OBAMA!!!!! He led us into the final stages of change right before our eyes.  When we finally get the courage in this country to see the damage cause by him and the uber criminal left. They use the WE word democracy used instead of Constitutional Republic we will be doomed. We can blind ourselves with excuses not to see the truth and grab it by the tail and slap them in a federal prison rather then allowing them to destroy us then we will be asking for what we get.

How long are we going to allow the left destroy all we hold true.  When are we going to stop them.  our destruction is coming from  within and we will celebrate the fourth of July with barbq and fun and games.  What about those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom and constitution?  Time for us to honor those men and women with a fight of our own, one that will fire sessions and get someone in who will finally drain the swamp of those who are here to destroy the very thing they died for.  So when will this happen.  I guess when we all stop waiting for someone else to start it,  It wont happen.  We either UNITE or we Fall right where they want us back into slavery and depression of a once unique Country where we stood Free and Brave and mostly respected not laugh at as we are now. yes our President is only a man and man needs support from his people and a strong force standing behind him ready for the fight by encouraging him an standing strong. An by having a stronger an louder voice. 

The left just like anyone who gets away with the bulling only gets stronger. We have to stop them in unity and strength against their devious ways.  

Just my thoughts wishing more were more awake.The talk has to stop and the walk has to begin before it is too late, that is if it isn't already. We are a land of laws and no one is supposed to be above those laws and until we let them understand it through action we will fall. Prove me different and I will apologize.  Make it good I have become a disbeliever of the comments stated for the last eight years.  I personally have never heard or seen the mob mentality we have today and the brainwashing they have acomplished to our end..  Alinsky in the making do it slowly and repeat often and the people will believe then you strike. 

It all feels like a game and guess what we the people today's generation and those to come are the losers. We are the keepers of our freedom, our forefathers warned us and yet we remain blind and keep on talking in hopes it will be taken care of by some unknown entity.

I am not trying to lecture here but am so fearful of what I see and hear.  Read between the lines you will hear and see the truth dont hide from it we are in a stated of falling fast.  God bless all of you I pray he will hear our prayers and open all our minds to the Truth.

Good post Watchman and great responses.  It is important that as the world changes, so will America.  It would be too Pollyanna to think that our Republic is immune to the ravages of impending Socialism.  Make no mistake, Socialism is on the horizon for America.  America's future is in the hands of America's youth.  Although there are a number of young people who haven't been indoctrinated by the Socialism onslaught in our schools and yes even in our churches.  The question is, are there enough Conservative Christians to fend off the fascist attacks of their Socialist indoctrinated peers?  

We blessed Americans have seen our Republic survive a great Civil War, we're heirs of what we commonly and respectfully call the "Great Generation".  In reality though we have to ask what the Great Generation's underlying legacy truly was?  We, who are now in the grandparent stages were for the most part given what our parents couldn't have or didn't have.  Because they suffered, they were bound and determined that we would not suffer the same way.  As once said the road to perdition is paved with good intentions.  Our parents of the WWII era were great, that fact cannot be argued.  But did our non-suffering make us complacent?  The answer is, yes it did.  However, understand that through little fault of our own, we watched our Republic begin slipping away, somewhere in the 1960's, and those days of protests gave rise to the Socialist Fascist movement we see today.  We, as the heirs of the Greatest Generation's prosperity slipped into the "Normalcy Bias".  We watched our Republic recover, or shall I say appear to recover from the Vietnam War, that being the very first televised war, and while we were in Vietnam our families were being subjected to the Liberally biased reporting of the Vietnam war.  So much so that Vietnam Veterans were the first American Warriors who were not welcomed home as America's hero's.  However, through this tumultuous time, we did see healing and once again the "Normalcy Bias" did it's job.  While making America feel that we were able to eventually make everything "normal" once again, we were distracted from seeing the planted seeds of Socialism, and how they were being cultivated in the minds of our youth.  As a result our offspring gave birth to the most molly coddled generation we see now poised to actually govern this Republic.  

The assumption that the United States of America will never become anything but what it's always was to us is in reality, not reality at all.  Are we falling back into the "Normalcy Bias", that has served us so well, or should I say made us comfortable in our complacency? 

I wouldn't venture to speak for everyone, but I can speak for myself.  I'm not feeling very comfortable with what I'm seeing and witnessing from many of America's youth through the media today, and I don't mean only CNN, CBS, NBC and ABC.  Action is needed to stop the impending demise of this Constitutional Republic, action should have taken place some 40 or 50 years ago.  But the "Normalcy Bias" wouldn't allow it.  

God won't bless the wicked but he will turn them over to their reprobate ways.  In 2Chronicles:7 14, God tells us "If my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land."  God isn't asking to hear from evil people, he's asking "people who are called by his name".  Not all people are called by His name.  He wants His people to take a stand, to pray, to turn away from the world and turn back to him.  There are way too many American's who have already chosen to deny God, Satan has been recruiting his army.  Satan doesn't attack those whose souls already belong to him.

"Normalcy Bias", was a trap and still is.  Please don't doubt me on this.  Assuming that America will once again get back to normal is folly, as assumption always is.
