How Will Biden Forge Common Ground With Conservatives?

How Will Biden Forge Common Ground With Conservatives?

( – America is more divided than ever. For decades, Democrats have demonized and harassed conservatives. The far left is pursuing an all-out power grab to transform America into a socialist state. The Democrats and their allies in the media have painted the election as fair when it’s evident in many places it wasn’t. Amid America’s political and cultural battle, potential President-Elect Joe Biden says he wants to find common ground and work with conservatives and govern all of America.

That’s going to be easier said than done.

For decades Biden cut deals in the US Senate. However, the majority of Senators that Biden served with are no longer in elected office. During the Obama/Biden administration, Republicans endured a hostile administration, and during President Trump’s first term, Democrats harassed and attacked him and his conservative supporters.

Democrats Pick Fights and Then Want Peace

For twelve years, Democrats have been antagonistic towards conservatives, and it doesn’t appear to be letting up anytime soon despite Biden’s stated desire for cooperation. However, that cooperation only seems to be assured if Republicans cave to the demands of Democrats. It’s a familiar refrain.

During the Obama years, conservatives endured a relentless barrage of attacks from the Obama administration. The IRS targeted conservative groups, and Obamacare was shoved down the throats of Americans on a 100% partisan vote in both the House and Senate. Obama regularly mocked conservatives and was the original use of the “fake news” moniker when he went after Fox News. Additionally, Obama and Biden launched the investigation into the Trump campaign and conspired to hurt the incoming administration through the Russian collusion hoax.

During the Trump administration, Democrats did all they could to prevent Trump from Making America Great Again. For the first three years, they lied day-after-day about the Russia collusion despite being repeatedly told there was no proof by intelligence officials. The president was impeached on a bogus charge on which any president could be impeached. The Democrats and the media regularly twisted the president’s words to shade him and his supporters into sexists, racists, xenophobes, and homophobes.

Conservatives Attacked

To make matters worse, Democrats, far-left activists, and their allies in the media and Big Tech have attacked conservative individuals. They participated in a vicious onslaught against the character of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018. They participated in cancel culture against conservatives in entertainment and business. They boycotted companies like Goya, who are trying to do good things for America. They censored speech they disagreed with on social media.

The current Democratic talking point is that Republicans are cultists, and some are even calling for Trump supporters to be charged with crimes for voting. Biden and his team are not speaking out against these talking points.

How is that finding common ground?

Biden Wants Common Ground with Conservatives?

Biden’s transition team is setting up a position to do outreach to conservatives. The only issue at the moment that could be bipartisan come inauguration day, if the Electoral College indeed elects Biden, is infrastructure.


That’s it?

Based on his potential cabinet nominees and other appointments, Biden isn’t interested in working with Republicans or conservatives. The list is growing long of anti-Trump Democrats who have expressed loathsome words for Republicans.

Biden often made promises during the campaign to govern all of America. Yet, his cabinet nominees are a growing list of who’s who of liberal and far-left ideologues. The political divisions are deep, and the differences between the vision for the two parties are wider than the Grand Canyon.

Democrats made their bed demonizing Trump and conservatives.

If Biden wants to work with conservatives, he needs to earn it.
