Susan Eisenhower, the granddaughter of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, told Fox News Thursday night that America’s leaders must find the “language, the methods and the means to unify this country” amid the coronavirus pandemic and increasing urban violence and unrest.
“We really need leadership that leads the entire country,” Eisenhower told host Martha MacCallum, later adding, “it’s so serious, it really is a national security issue.”
Here’s the problem with unity: When half the country wants freedom, and the other half wants totalitarian, unlimited government, no reconciliation is possible. I no longer consider most Democratic, leftist voters merely ignorant and uninformed. I consider them bad, dangerous people who personally threaten my liberty. I consider them enemies no different than Communists and Nazis of earlier eras. Ms. Eisenhower is living in the past. And that’s truly a regrettable thing.
