~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
Last night on FOX, Tucker Carlson made a comment that really troubled me. He said, and I quote "Our Power Is In Our Diversity." I find that statement, not only bothersome but false by Conservative standards. Diversity does not empower the Republic, or any other nation of organization for that matter. America is not powerful because it's divided, it's powerful because it's united. The very first word in this Republic's name is "United", is it not? Have we somehow evolved over the past 242 years since our founding? When did the United States of America become the Divided (diverse) States of America? It appears the Left has been hammering the word "diversity" for so long that even many Conservatives are beginning to think that there is something good in being diverse and not so much in being united. Our Republic's national motto is "E Pluribus Unum" "Out of many one, is it not?" Or is it now, "Out of one, many"? Are America's higher schools of education not called Universities?
I believe our journalists and talk show hosts are in dire need of some remedial education in the etymology of the English language. The prefix Uni, gives glue to the rest of the word, it in essence means united. The prefix Div, gives glue to the rest of the word, it, in essence means divided.
Adages from our past should tell us that united is good, divided, not so much. "United we stand, divided we fall." Or how about "There is strength in numbers, we must remain united." Or, "to win, we must divide and then conquer the enemy."
Interjecting the word "Diversity" wherever the word should be "United" is a Leftist ploy that continues to divide the enemy and the enemy for all intents and purposes to the Leftists are "We the People of the United States of America".
It is imperative that Constitutional Conservatives use the correct words to explain America and it's principles and not use the words that are repeatedly drummed into society by the Left. America did not become the unique Republic that it is by staying or being diverse. America is unique in it's very nature because we are united.
