Just over two weeks into the Biden regime, it is clear that the former vice president’s calls for unity were as dishonest as they were hollow.
In the aftermath of the most contentious election in U.S. history, one that has disenfranchised over 74 million voters, Biden’s party and its surrogates are engaging in a pervasive and intensifying campaign to demonize Trump supporters.
Not content to merely smear tens of millions of loyal Americans as white supremacists and Nazis, the one-party state and a media are in the process of redefining Trump supporters as insurrectionists and terrorists.
In yet another of the rapidly multiplying examples of this dangerous trend, a columnist for the Los Angeles Times has penned a screed comparing her conservative neighbors to the radical Islamic terrorist organization Hezbollah.
The most disgusting aspect of Virginia Heffernan’s column? Her “moderate” Trump-supporting neighbors had just plowed her driveway for free, an act of kindness that the author acknowledged but later spat on in a piece that will be read by millions.
Look below for her disgusting peace:
We survived the lawn-sign war with our Trumpite neighbors.
But here’s my piece about what happened when they brought out the big guns: kindness.https://t.co/0cddBb8dfH

Via the LA Times:
“Hezbollah, the Shiite Islamist political party in Lebanon, also gives things away for free. The favors Hezbollah does for people in the cities Tyre and Sidon probably don’t involve snowplows, but, like other mafias, Hezbollah tends to its own — the Shiite sick, elderly and hungry. They offer protection and hospitality and win loyalty that way. And they also demand devotion to their brutal, us-versus-them anti-Sunni cause. Some of us are family, the favors say; the rest are infidels.
The same is true with Louis Farrakhan, who currently helms the Nation of Islam. While the Southern Poverty Law Center classifies him as a dangerous anti-Semite, much of his flock says he’s just a little screwy and unfailingly magnanimous. To them.
When someone helps you when you’re down, or snowed in, it’s almost impossible to regard them as a blight on the world. In fact, you’re more likely to be overwhelmed with gratitude and convinced of the person’s inherent goodness.”
Heffernan then went on to liken her neighbors to post-WW II Nazi sympathizers in liberated France:
“You might end up like the upper-middle-class family I stayed with in France as a teenager. They did not attend a citywide celebration for the 100th birthday of Charles de Gaulle, the war hero who orchestrated the liberation of his country from Nazi Germany in 1944. They did have several portraits of Philippe Pétain, Nazi collaborator, on their wall.
When I screwed up the courage to ask how it was for them during the occupation, the lady of the house replied, “We were happy because the Nazis were very polis.” I didn’t know the word, so I excused myself to consult a French-English dictionary. I was in tears when I found the entry: “polite.”
The author deserves some credit for not condoning violence against the Trump-supporting neighbors as many of her fellow travelers in the establishment media have, but her column is another example of how it is no longer permissible in America to have political opinions that conflict with the ruling oligarchy.
The left is just too dug into their anti-Trump fantasies to ever give them up and this is not headed to a very good place.
