Hello, America. This is the place for uncensored talk on everything that divides us as a nation. I’m Alan Jacoby, and welcome to “The Great Divide.”
Hello, everybody. I’m Alan Jacoby. Thanks for tuning in. Let’s talk about what divides us as Americans. I think it’s safe to say, and everyone will agree that our political climate in this country is terrible and that our nation has become fractured along all political lines, Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, red, blue, whatever it is.
It’s to a point where Thanksgiving dinners they’ve become intolerable for most, and uncomfortable for a lot of other people, just sitting in a room with someone who has opposing political views can become explosive. We can talk about things and then when politics get involved, all of a sudden the climate changes, the mood changes, and I feel like the disagreements, the respectful disagreements are a thing of the past. A lot of the times, not all the time.
I will say, I’m a conservative Republican, and I have a lot of opinions. I like to talk about anything. I will talk about anything I can argue with the best of them, debate. I’m not going to attack you because we have a difference of opinion. I think that’s ridiculous. It’s childish. It’s inhuman. It’s un-American, it’s ridiculous, but I’ll have a conversation with say someone on the left, liberal, Democrat, and it’s happened to me, unfortunately. I’ll make a point. I’ll ask a question and if it’s not following the narrative of their belief, it’ll get aggressive. I’ll get attacked verbally.
I’ve had my humanity attacked from liberal Democrats just by asking simple questions. And that seems to be the trend. The trend is if someone on the left is not agreeing with someone on the right, they want to shut that person down on the right. Silence them. They don’t want to hear it. And if you try to make a point, it’ll get explosive.
I am a small business owner. I’ve had a liberal Democrat who I don’t even know if this comes from a post on social media it was like NBC or ABC. It was a news story. I asked a question about, why are they spending so much time and energy worrying about who the president’s going to be and asking them about, house representatives and senators? And they didn’t like that. And they didn’t even know I was a Republican.
They have no idea if I was a Trump supporter or not. They immediately said that I am a Trump supporting white supremacists. And I was taken back by it and I was like, wow. Then I responded, what gives you the notion, the assumption that one, I’m a Republican and two, that I’m a Republican who happens to support Donald Trump? And again, it was, I’m a piece of garbage, I’m a racist go wear your swastika MAGA hat. And that was it.
So, okay. I didn’t engage anymore. Maybe about 20 minutes later, I get a phone call on my business line and I pick it up. And the voice on the other line is, “Do you have an employee named Alan Jacoby?” And I was quiet for a minute. Not for a minute. I immediately said, “Yes.” I wanted to see where this was going. And the voice on the other line said, “I went to your website and I’m going to send you an email on social media posts that your employee made. And he’s a white supremacist, and you have a racist working for you, and he’s a Nazi and he should be fired.” And all of this, they were going on and on and on and on and on over the phone.
And I stopped. And I said, “He’s what?” “He’s a white supremacist” I said, “What makes him a Nazi? What makes him a white supremacist?” “Well, he’s a Trump supporter.” I said, “Oh, okay.” I said, “Listen, you’re speaking to Alan Jacoby.” Unfortunately, before I got the rest of my response, they hung up abruptly. And then from there, they went on my business, social media page. And I guess until they tired out. It was like maybe whatever, first 10 or 15 posts he saw, he just copied and paste it. “The owner of this company is a white supremacist and Nazi, and don’t do business with them.”
Obviously they were banned from the page and I deleted the comments, but then that actually opened my eyes up to, all of this cancel culture. And I didn’t pay much attention to the cancel culture until recently until I really went like, “Wow. This is a real thing.”
And I was doing a lot of reading about just what was going on in the world. And this left extreme. I call it the extremist because I want to make one thing perfectly clear. I don’t hate everybody on the left. I don’t hate every Democrat. I don’t, I have good friends that are Democrats, liberals. We poke fun at each other. They’re really great people and just like on the right, they’re some crazy, crazy right extremists. We know that.
We look at the Capitol, that’s going to be a whole other episode. I don’t agree with anything that happened there. Those people that desecrated the Capitol and try to, not try, caused that violence, death destruction, I think every single one of them that had something to do with it should have to pay for what they’ve done. I don’t condone it. I think it’s disgusting. Just like, I think it was disgusting all summer how Antifa, Black Lives Matter.
Again, Antifa, I’m sorry, terrorist, in my opinion, again, opinion show. Terrorist organization, Black Lives Matter. I’m not going to label them as a terrorist organization because I believe that there’s good people that really want to fight for their, social injustice and all of that. And I get it. And I support that and that’s a whole other issue. Antifa, obviously, there are people it’s left wing, supported, extreme, left wing supported.
And I love when they turn around and say, and politicians have said this, prominent politicians, “Antifa is not an organization. It’s just an idea.” Yeah. Ideas don’t show up, dressed in black and masks with umbrellas running around the streets, smashing out windows, setting cars on fire, beating people in the street, throwing blocks, bricks, Molotov cocktails at Police. That’s a terroristic organization. That’s not protesting.
This is another thing I have a problem with, Black Lives Matter is not Antifa. They’re completely separate. And Antifa if you’re flying under that flag and you’re claiming to be that you’re a piece of shit. You’re a terrorist. And I love for them to round you all up and hang you in a public square. That’s not Black Lives Matter, but then again, they have their extremist too.
Once again, this is all opinion. This is my opinion, based on the facts that I see. You can agree with it. You can disagree with it. That’s fine. Which by the way, agree or disagree. I’d love to hear anybody’s feedback on anything I say. You could reach out to me on social media. You could shoot me an email at email@example.com. I’d love to read it. I might even respond to some, in future episodes. But back to this cancel culture.
Where is all of this stemming from, because it’s not just Americans. It’s not just a Joe Blow Democrat. Where’s it being fueled from? Well, to me, it’s starting with our government. Okay. Let’s take Congress. I’m not going to talk about the president and who’s in there right now. I want to talk about Congress, our House and Senate, which right now my opinion is just filled with disgusting swamp trolls who do nothing but fight against each other. They have their self-serving political agendas. They don’t care about you. They don’t care about me. And that goes both sides, Republican and Democrat. They will fight against each other.
Some of them 30 and 40 year members of Congress who have done nothing but amassed fortunes for themselves being public servants and doing nothing. Alright. Every once in a while, something gets passed. A bill, we get it up to the big guy in the Oval office and he signed it into law and it helps us. It doesn’t help us. And we could go around with our blindfold on and say, “But does it really affect us? Does it really affect us on who’s in Congress?” If you have that attitude, you’re an idiot because you’re goddamn, right, it affects us and everyone.
And you’re going to hear me say this a lot. If you stick around and listen to future episodes, if everyone would stop and open their eyes, take a step back, open their eyes and look and see, does it really matter who occupies the White House? Let me rephrase. Hold on. The temporary government employee that occupies the White House four to eight years, does it really make a difference? Because it all comes in cycles, politics.
It’s either four years or eight years. What does the president do? Let’s break it down. What does he do? The leader of the free world. The leader of the free world is not a law maker. He signed bills into law that come to him. Once it’s done in the house and passed by the Senate and it comes to him and he’s going to sign it. He’s going to veto. He’s going to rally his party. Whichever he is. The president is at the time, the temporary government employee, Republican and Democrat, and he’s going to sign it.
And when he gets in, he’s going to sign a crap load of executive orders that are going to be there for the duration of his presidency. And then what’s going to happen? The next guy is going to come in and write a bunch more executive orders that are going to cancel out those executive orders. But we will fight in the streets. We will fight in the media. We will fight on social media about who we’re supporting for president and why and bash this one and bash that one. Why? Why are we just programmed that the most important election is the Presidential election?
What about the people that are presenting bills, writing bills and passing them? Our local representation. I speak to a lot of people. And when we get into this conversation, they look at me with two heads at first and say, “What do you mean it doesn’t matter who the president is?” Well, that’s just what I said. They’re a temporary government employee. What do they really matter? It’s going to come in cycles. It’s going to go be good. It’s going to be bad. It’s going to be good. It’s going to be bad.
But our Congress, most people don’t know who their state senators are. Most people don’t know who their Congressman or Congresswoman are. Why? Well, because they’re not involved. But when it comes time for a presidential election, everybody’s at each other’s throats. Everybody, celebrities, news media, Republicans, Democrats, everybody hates everybody. And it’s just a mass hysteria of emotion accusations and the occasional violent acts, which are ridiculous anyway, with the savagery.
So, where does that leave us? Well, here we go. So, with all that. Now we have our wonderful mainstream media. How aren’t they great. The objective journalists. If you didn’t hear the sarcasm in my voice. There was a lot of sarcasm there because objective journalism is gone. We all know the last four years; President Trump has had this major war with mainstream media. Okay. I’m not going to refer to them as fake news. I think it’s a childish term. I don’t see the depth in it. I will just call them 100% unequivocally biased media.
We know that they hated Donald Trump. We know that they did everything they possibly could to attack him from every angle. His press secretaries, what he had four or five of them. His press secretaries walk into that briefing room. And before they had usually their second point across, they were getting bombarded with questions, bombarded, bombarded, bombarded.
And if you look at past administrations, look at the Obama administration. The media were like puppy dogs in that briefing room for the most part. There might’ve been a few times there was a little conflict in that briefing room. But when you walked into a Trump administration briefing room where you saw it on TV, it was like throwing a pork chop into a room full of pit bulls. It was an all-out assault on whoever was standing at that podium and the presidency let’s face it. And they did not hide it. They never hid it. Look at CNN. At the time I’m recording this, we have a new president. Joe Biden is the president of the United States. I’m not going to get into the whole election thing, especially now we could talk about that for hours.
But right after the election, you had CNN, CNN journalists, Don Lemon, complete, complete clown. Anybody who thinks he is a decent journalist; it’s like telling me that Cher could actually sing without making you want to puke all over yourself. This guy, gets on there and says, Trump supporters are clan supporters. Trump supporters support white supremacy. How on earth did he come up with that? How on earth did anyone come up with if you voted for Donald Trump, you’re a white supremacist? Okay. I know I’m not a white supremacist. I voted for Donald Trump twice. I did, but that makes me a white supremacist.
So, the 70, was it 74, 75 million people in this country. They’re all clan supporters and white supremacists. Come on. So, now the media, especially now, and I know after four years, but it’s more clear now they want to completely delete and silence anyone on the right with an opinion, anyone on the right that wants to speak out. Because if you say something that does not go within narrative and you do not agree with how the extreme left feels, they will do whatever they can to come after you and cancel you. Cancel culture. They will come after your business.
News, media outlets will demand cable carriers to not broadcast and carry other news media outlets that don’t agree with them. But let’s stop for a minute because I could talk about left-leaning bias media all day. The right has their own media outlets as well, especially now in this climate where new ones popped up, Newsmax OAN and Fox.
Fox was the kind of middle of the road, more right leaning at one time. But now they’ve collapsed and conformed to the left, with the exception of a few of their contributors. But listen, I’ll sit there and I’ll watch NBC for a little while. I’ll sit there. I’ll watch Newsmax. To me, it’s all pure entertainment because I’d like to think of myself. I know a few of my friends would disagree with me, as an intelligent adult, who can compute all of this information and come up with your own opinion. No one is going to influence my opinion. I’m going to hear what you have to say on the left. And then I’m going to hear what you have to say on the right.
Yes, I’m a Republican, but that doesn’t mean I agree with everything that goes on on the right, because I do not. I watch Newsmax for educational purposes, just like I watch NBC and CNN for educational purposes. And then I do my own research because there’s plenty of other places online or anywhere you can get information. I like to hear what people have to say. Not so much from the news. I actually sit there and I watch White House briefings. If I can’t catch them live, I watch them on YouTube. I watch them here. I watch them there. Wherever I can find them. And I come up with my own beliefs.
I guarantee you, most people, if you ask. Ask a friend, “Do you watch White House briefings?” Most likely not. Most likely they were only watching them as part of a news report where they’ll show clips of it, but they’ll hear the biased of the left-wing news or you could watch Newsmax. They’re bias as well. Obviously, I feel like Newsmax, they have to defend the right, which I get. Because let’s face it, the left has completely vilified the right.
Republicans are evil. Republicans are Nazis Republicans are white supremacists. And if you truly believe that, and you don’t have in your heart or in your brain to take a step back and look that we’re not. I’m not saying that there aren’t any, of course, there are. There are plenty, there are plenty of white supremacists who are Republicans. There are also plenty of white supremacists who are Democrats. Listen, I know black Republicans who I know for a fact, they despise white people. I know white Democrats who despise black people or Spanish or Jewish, whatever it is. Okay.
So, that whole just overall label on someone, because maybe they’re registered to vote a certain way, or because they voted for a certain candidate, you’re going to call them that, it is completely ridiculous. I think everybody really, truly needs to look at the big picture of politics and why you’re leaning a certain way. You can’t tell me that Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the house is not out for blood for any Republican, especially Donald Trump.
He’s not even the president anymore. And she still can’t give it up. They’re doing this. They’re on this attack of all Republicans. Who is that benefiting? It’s not benefiting the American people. It’s self-serving and it’s benefiting them. Democrats, the boogeyman has left the White House. He’s gone., you won. You have the house. You have the Senate, not by much majority, by the way, you still have your work cut out for you. And you have the presidency for now.
Still you’re on this kick of canceling anyone and everyone, who’s a Republican, conservative, whether they have a voice or they have a business. You have the conservative censorship by the left and the media it’s overwhelming right now. Just recently, at MSNBC journalists, I can’t even call them journalists. They’re clowns, Nicolle Wallace. She says, this is a good one. She says Republicans should be banned from speaking. I mean, speaking at all, unless they first speak the truth. What she accepts is the truth.
One of my favorites, how about Katie Couric? That news rag or whatever she’s doing now. She turned around and said, how can we deprogram these people? Deprogram. Deprogram and de-platform. You have left-wing publishing houses, editors, authors that they’re writing open letters, opposing any publisher in the business that they should not sign any book deal. Don’t give anyone a book deal. Who’s had anything to do the Trump administration.
If you worked and did anything in the Trump administration, and you wanted to write a book, these people don’t want to allow it. They don’t want you to tell your story. They don’t want to hear from you. They want to cancel you. And they call this open letter. This is great. No book deals for traders. Are you fucking kidding me? Oh, yes. By the way, I don’t know if I’ve said this, but this is going to be uncensored talk. And if bad words trigger you, well, you should probably click off and go run to your safe space. I don’t have time for weak minded people. I like to talk to people, Republican and Democrat.
And again, it’s hard for me as a Republican, not to bash what’s going on on the left. And I’m not going to bash every Democrat because there are plenty of Republicans I’ll bash too. The Republican party is a dumpster fire right now. You have Republicans who supported Donald Trump. Who Donald Trump helped, helped get reelected and campaigned for who have turned their back on him.
And now the Republican party, the Republican party needs to tighten up and you’ll hear this from every decent conservative about, hey, we need to tighten up and reign in and stick together if we’re going to support the people that we want to run for office that believe in our values. I believe in freedom and free thinking and freedom of speech. And I agree with what’s mine is mine. I worked for this. No one is entitled to what I worked for. No one, I didn’t work for all this to give it to people who were sitting on their ass in mommy’s basement, eating hot pockets, drowning in college debt, because they decided to go to school about the anatomy of an Egyptian sculpture or whatever the hell they decided to go to school for.
And now, because they don’t want to take a job as a custodian in a school because it’s beneath them that they should have a handout. Oh, and by the way, please cancel my student loan. I shouldn’t have to pay for school. And someone should hand me something. I got to go run to GameStop and pick up, whatever games Cupcake has come out this week. So, I could sit there on my mommy’s couch, in the basement, eating hot pockets.
Come on. If you’re passionate about something, I get it. But there’s one thing about being passionate about something and aggressively obsessing about something that maybe you don’t fully understand. But if someone else doesn’t have that same ideology and belief who wants to agree with your narrative, you’re going to attack them. And that’s what’s happening from the left because I’m not hearing anybody from the right boycotting this, boycott that. Democrat, silence them, silence them silence them.
Every Republican, I know that I talked to says, I’ll have a conversation with someone on the left, the Democrat, friend, maybe not a friend, maybe just in passing and when the beliefs collide and then the disagreement happens, it gets explosive from the person on the left for no reason. Like I said, it happened to me a lot. It’s not right.
And then besides media, and then you have big tech that’s in the left’s pocket, they’re working on trying to silence everyone. You have big corporations because someone supports their president. Okay. We’re not going to carry your product anymore. Mike Lindell, MyPillow. Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s I think Wayfair. Few other big ridiculous tech companies. We’re not going to carry your product anymore, but they’ll disguise it and say, “It wasn’t selling from our store.”
Okay. Conveniently, because he’s an outspoken Republican, we’re going to try to silence him too. Social media, they go ahead and they make a social media platform for free speech Parler. I never joined it. A lot of people I know, did. I never joined it and poof, gone Apple and Google Android, and the Apple stores, can’t have the apps on our stores anymore because, oh, you don’t have a sensor program or right community standards program or something. Because you don’t sensor, what your subscribers on there that use your platform say, well, since we’re the two monopolies of the app stores, we’re not going to carry your app. Boom. They shut them down. Parler right now is in a litigation about it. I hope it works out.
How can you just delete free speech? And there’s a difference, the first amendment that you could say, what you want, and you free speech against your government, but obviously you can’t make threats to anybody. You can’t threaten violence. You can’t, that’s not free speech. And there are consequences with that. We could get into that so much and we will, at some point in another episode.
I wanted to start this podcast with the idea in my head is we’re all Americans, Republican, Democrat. And I feel like we’re all being duped. We’re all being fooled by members of our government being fueled by the media that’s driving this divide between us. And it’s just sad. It’s disgusting. Left-wing and right-wing. We’re the same bird. We’re the same bird.
We’re Americans, we can have disagreements on policy, politics, anything, we could disagree about sports teams. I hate sports. I don’t even know why I said that, but can we disagree respectfully? Do we have to be aggressive and attack someone’s humanity and try to destroy them? And this is going to come up in future episodes. I’m going to call out politicians, who have stopped at nothing.
People in the new political arena. I’ll mention one AOC, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, socialist trash, never held a job. Or she was a bartender. I’m sorry. I take it back. Take it back AOC. You’re a bartender. Someone in the Democratic Party, saw something in you. I don’t know if they were thinking, hey she’d be great in politics, or I don’t know I’ll leave that. But she becomes a Congressman woman. Okay. What is it? She just won re-election.
So, two years ago, she becomes a Congresswoman she’s from parts of the Bronx and Queens. And she completes self-proclaimed she knows she’s a socialist. She knows she formed a little squad and she’ll call for unity, but then she’ll want to deprogram white supremacists. Let me tell you again. White supremacists, white supremacists’ groups, anyone who advocates for white supremacy, in my opinion, should be lynched, just like white supremacists did to African Americans and slaves and all of the shit that they’ve done. They should pay for that.
But you can’t label someone just because they’re Republican a white supremacist. You better have some solid evidence when you call someone a white supremacist, you better back that up with facts. Not because they support someone that you don’t like, who you think is a white supremacist, because let me tell you, Donald Trump is not a white supremacist. Oh. How many people just disagree with me there?
Disagree all you want. Disagree all you want. It’s a fact, look back, look back into Donald Trump’s past. The guy’s a businessman, he’s an egomaniac. I don’t really like him as a person, to be honest with you. I don’t, I don’t, but I admire him because he’s a politician. He’s not a politician. Whether he’s a good businessman or not. He made a name for himself. He’s a billionaire. With the help of his father, he’s built this Trump organization, whatever it may be, whatever you think of him is fine.
Once again, he wouldn’t be someone I’d like to have just a full on conversation with, because I hate when people just sit there and talk about how great they are. That’s not me, but why did he become the president of the United States? To me, it’s obvious the American people were tired of the establishment, and this was their chance to throw up two middle fingers and say, fuck you to the establishment.
Now we’re going to give you Donald Trump and Donald Trump had these great ideas. And a lot of them, he brought to fruition. He did a lot, we got the tax cuts. He was hard on illegal immigration. The energy independence, he did a lot. There are things, I think he could have done different. There are things I think he could have done that he didn’t like the affordable health care act that he was completely against. And one of his things was I’m going to fix this. I’m going to bring something that everyone’s going to be able to afford.
Instead he fought it in court. He fought it in court and he didn’t bring anything to the table. He didn’t even have a draft. And that I think was one of his downfalls, but he’s not a white supremacist. He’s done more for the black community, before he was president of the United States and while he was president of the United States. And if you don’t want to believe that, do a little research, do a little research. All of these African-American celebrities or influencers, they all loved him before he was president. Everybody loved him before he was president, but then he became president and he was going against the grain against the establishment. He didn’t want a salary. He donated his salary to government organizations.
Again, I’m not making this the praise Donald Trump hour, I’m giving the facts. And unfortunately, people that disagree with them, take those facts and say, well, they’re not true. Well, okay. We can agree to disagree on that because all you have to do is a little research. Anyway, AOC socialist, deprogram white supremacists keep a list of Trump’s supporters so they can be ostracized when the election is over. I didn’t say that. She said that.
Congress woman Ocasio-Cortez, AOC superstar in Congress leader of the squad, she said that. Keep a list. Why, what are we going back to? Nazi Germany. Again, she’s one of the advocates of cancel culture. Realize people you want to talk about cancel culture, exactly what the Democrats are doing. Cancel culture. The Nazis revolutionized cancel culture because back when Hitler came in power in January of 1933, April, it was April 1st, 1933. He marched out and started the Jewish boycott.
The Jewish boycott was for all Germans in Germany, everyone that they could not shop and patronize any Jewish businesses. Jewish businesses, Jewish professionals, you could not do business with them. They were forced, forced out of business, families losing everything. And then what did they do? Well, they marched them into ghettos and they marched them on to trains. And then they gassed every single one of them. Cancel culture. The original cancel culture.
I had a conversation with somebody, I was wearing a red hat that said, “We the People” on it. Guy says to me, “Oh no. It’s not a make America great again, hat.” He says. I said, “No, that’s on my shelf in my office.” And he looked at me and he goes, “Oh.” He said, “You wear a swastika?” I said, “Excuse me.” He said, “A MAGA hat. It’s like wearing a swastika.” I said, “Why is it like wearing a swastika?” He says, “Only white supremacists wear that.” I said, “So, I’m a white supremacist?” I say, “By what standard, by what facts you have that I’m a white supremacist. Because I own a “Make America great again” hat?” I say, “Is Donald Trump a white supremacist or something?”
And he goes, “Well, absolutely.” I said, Donald Trump, his son-in-law is Jewish. I mean kosher practicing Jew and his daughter converted. And now she’s a Jew and his grandkids who were born, their kids are Jews, who he loves more than anything. I said, “Oh, by the way, my last name is Jacoby.” I said, “Let me put a spin on this for a minute. What if I told you right now in this current climate wearing a MAGA hat is like wearing a yellow star on your chest?” And he cocked his head and said, “What are you talking about?” I said, “My MAGA hat is my star on my chest.”
And the Democrats, the cancel culture, the AOCs and the Cuomo’s. And I don’t know, name a bunch of them. And they come and they’re marching through and anybody with a MAGA hat. They want to silence. They want to cancel. They want to delete. They don’t want to hear from. They don’t want to hear your views. They don’t want to hear your voice. They don’t want you to have a voice. And now they’re corralling all of these people with their MAGA hats on, and they’re putting them away, silencing them. I’m not saying they want to kill everyone with a MAGA hat, but who knows? I think actually some of them might.
I think they’d love to see a full marches of Republicans getting on box cars and go into an unknown location and never being heard from again, because that’s what it sounded like. The appearance of it, I’m not trying to be extreme here. So, anyway, that’s what I said to him. And he stopped for a minute and he said, “I get it. I can see that to a degree.” I said, yeah. I said, “So, you hear some extremists talking about how all Republicans and Trump supporters are white supremacists. And I’m here to tell you no, it’s wrong. I’m not a white supremacist. Those ideologies are disgusting. It hurts me when I see that. It is completely, completely unhuman and disgusting.”
So, with that again, I said to him, “Why are we spending so much time hating one, another Republican Democrat over people that don’t give a shit about us? They don’t care.” I’m sorry, but Donald Trump, Joe Biden, AOC, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, Republican, Democrat. They don’t care. They don’t. Self-serving whose fault is that? It’s ours. What could be a solution? Get involved. Locally, get involved.
You’re a Republican. Most Republicans I know they’re not in a Republican club. I’m not anymore. I used to be. I think I’m going to get more involved. Republicans have to weed out the weak Republicans. There are Republican candidates in there with the rhinos Republican in name only. They’re doing nothing. And to a degree they’ll bend over for an opposing Democrat just to self-serving reasons. Whatever that reason may be. We need to strengthen the Republican party. There’s no way around it. We have to strengthen it. And the way we’re going to do that is getting involved, worrying about who our local leaders are.
Once again, most people I talk to, they don’t know who their Congressman for their district. As some people live in villages and don’t pay attention on who the mayor is, or the board of trustee is or in townships where they have town councils and they’re not paying attention. It all starts local, people. It all starts local. And until you get involved on a level where it’s bigger than who’s president of the United States. We will never see a change. Politics has been around since the beginning of humanity. It’s not going away. It’s rough. It’s not a pleasant climate to be in.
But if you truly don’t care, that’s fine too. I’m not going to ostracize you or think any different of you if you just don’t care. But then don’t get involved in all the rhetoric of, oh, well, you’re a Democrat. So, that means you’re a socialist, communist and want to open our borders and let everybody in and take all of our money. And don’t be the Democrat to a Republican that says, “Well, all you care about is yourself and wanting to make everything great for white people.” Come on.
I honestly want to truly believe that Americans are smarter than that. They just don’t know it because they have to stop and take a look like, what are we doing? Let’s figure this out. Let’s figure this out. How can we figure a way to work together for the common good? And that’s what we have to start thinking about.
Anyway, I appreciate you joining me. I talked about a lot. I have a lot more to talk about. Stay tuned, keep an eye out for the next show. If you want to get a hold of me, once again, look me up on social media, The Great Divide Podcast. Email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Listen, everyone be nice to each other. Be respectful. Enough with the canceling out. Listen to one another. Republicans and Democrats we can do it. And we’re never going to agree on everything ever, but we can do it respectfully. And we can figure out a way to make our world, local world, country, broad, big picture. We can make it better.
Well, again, I’m going to wrap it up there. I want to thank you all again. I really want to thank all of our brave first responders out there and our military that stop at nothing to protect us every single day and to protect the freedoms that we have.
Take care everyone. God bless America.
