Let’s get this straight: these calls for unity from the left are complete and utter rubbish.
On Super Bowl Sunday, the famously leftist singer Bruce Springsteen appeared in a commercial for Jeep, according to the Daily Wire. Themes of unifying America were heavily laced throughout the feature. He had cheesy lines like:
“There’s a chapel in Kansas standing on the exact center of the lower 48. It never closes. All are more than welcome to come meet here in the middle. It’s no secret, the middle has been a hard place to get to lately, between red and blue, between servant and citizen, between our freedom and our fear.”
And who’s fault is that? Does Springsteen, who likened former President Donald Trump to a “demon,” realize what he’s saying? The singer also said,
“We need the middle. We just have to remember the very soil we stand on is common ground. So we can get there. We can make it to the mountain top, through the desert, and we will cross this divide. Our light has always found its way through the darkness. And there’s hope on the rode up ahead.”
The ad ended with the words “To the ReUnited States of America.” It’s as if Springsteen never promised to leave the country if Trump won in 2020.
The singer has some nerve. Springsteen publicly labeled Trump as “a threat to our democracy” last year in June. Compare what he said above to what he told The Atlantic about Trump:
“He simply makes any kind of reform that much harder. I don’t know if our democracy could stand another four years of his custodianship. These are all existential threats to our democracy and our American way of life.”
Needless to say, Jeep made a foolish choice in choosing the hypocritical Springsteen to represent their call to meet in the middle.
This disgusting display of blatantly false magnanimity is another leftist attempt to portray themselves as the benevolent forgivers, ignoring the fact that they wreaked widespread chaos and turbulence throughout the country for the past year by their words and deeds. It’s a lie, of course, but that’s the only weapon that the Left can rely on.
