The progressive view is inconsistent with unity
Michael Ramirez’s cartoon on May 2 wonderfully highlights the numerous identity categories in the “progressive view of America,” versus one category, American, in everyone else’s view. The progressive, identity-politics view seems profoundly inconsistent with promoting unity in the country, but instead seems very well designed to pit different identity groups against each other. Obsessing over our differences seems to be an odd way to try to bring us together. Overall, I believe that President Biden’s dual goals of progressive policies and American unity are unlikely to be achieved.
