Opinion by George McClellan:
I have come to hate the term, “healing Process.” For me, the healing process was when I broke my leg a few years ago racing my motorcycle. It hurt like hell but it did heal and both parts of my leg get along just fine. Life happens. In politics, the “healing process” doesn’t heal!
In politics the “healing process” is a term used by Leftists propagandists, and whiners, to lure winning GOP candidates into a false sense of ethereal security where the Republican(s) are led to believe “we’re all brothers, after all, aiming for the same goals and, can’t we just get along?
Well, no, we can’t, not without a sharp weapon in our hands. The Democrat Party was seized by the Progressives Socialists many years ago and any real American democrats were driven out or ultimately became Republicans.
Here I must refer to a Luntz Op-Ed in the New York Times prior to the election. Luntz was already laying the ground work for “healing”: “Let us hope that the leader we choose will have the courage and wisdom to heal a wounded nation and declare “enough is enough.” It’s time to govern. (We’ve heard all that before) For decades, that healing has begun on election night with a concession speech. The vanquished candidate, usually surrounded by family and friends, accepts defeat with remarkable grace and dignity, and asks supporters to accept the will of the people: “We’ve been around for 240 years. We’ve had free and fair elections. We’ve accepted the outcomes when we may not have liked them, and that is what must be expected of anyone.”
“As for the winner tonight” Luntz thought it necessary for Hillary or Trump to deliver less of a victory-style speech and more of what he calls a “personal apology and a clarion call — for unity, empathy and understanding.” Well, Trump did that but I don’t know why!
Luntz, added: “here are some of the words America desperately needs to hear:
Throughout this election, we’ve said things to each other that were harsh, negative and inappropriate. Our divisive words too often distract us from the challenges we need to solve.
From failing schools to rapidly rising health care costs, from immigration to Social Security, the challenges we face as individuals, as communities and as a country are immense and demand the best minds and best ideas from across the political spectrum. (Trump will have them)
“In the months ahead, my administration will set the example. We are more than just Democrats. We are more than just Republicans. We are Americans.”
According to Luntz, for the winner it will be “the first chance both candidates will have to begin the healing process … if they choose that path.” A lovely sentiment to be sure, but the Democrats don’t follow it except as a propaganda tool and a weapon. “Can’t we just get along?” means we must agree with them even when we won it all.
The nations wounds were inflicted on it by the Democrat Party and its president. Republicans had no hand in Obamacare, the IRS invasions of conservative groups, the murders of four American’s in Benghazi, the destabilization of the middle-east or the failure to slow down the relentless advance of Islamic Jihadism. Their only failure was a failure to stop Obama’s nonsense because they have been trained to shiver in fear lest they be called racists for not supporting our first (and probably last) black president. The die has been cast, and for the democrats it came up “snake eyes.” It’s time for the Republicans to realized and accept their failures and rally around the new President (elect) and defeat the Socialists, because, they’ll be back. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (10 Nov 2016)
