‘We Are on a Slow Roll Toward Our Own Little Gazas’

A few days ago at a pro-Hamas rally in Dearborn, Michigan, cries of ‘death to America’ rang out from the crowd. It’s the sort of thing we are used to hearing at events in Tehran but not the United States.

Just because we value free speech doesn’t mean we have to like it, or to not be disturbed by it. It is a symptom of a much bigger problem that we see growing in America, especially in our cities.

This week on The Five on FOX News, Greg Gutfeld offered some excellent analysis on this.

Transcript via Real Clear Politics:

GUTFELD: It took us a long time to move on. I use that phrase probably loosely to move on from 9/11. We remembered it every single day, every single day we built and we did everything. 6 months since October 7th, and history is already history. There are people that are already denying what went on. It has gotten in many minds smaller and smaller. Their respect for what Israel is doing is getting smaller. But it’s not Israel’s fault. Your respect for what Israel does is related to the legacy of the Holocaust.

If you actually believed that since the Holocaust, Israel has a right to defend itself, then this is the moment to prove it. This is the moment. If everything you said about Israel in the past, that they have a right to defend themselves, and now you are criticizing them, then nothing you said was worth it. Because it is supposed to matter now…

I get the impression with the “Death To America” stuff that we are on a slow roll toward our own little Gazas. These little islands of unrest in the country. These were places that were sacrificed to leftism. Leftisms, where laws were discarded. Identity and division became the currency. Look at Minneapolis since George Floyd. It’s never been the same. It’s all these enclaves. We were supposed to be a melting pot. But that requires melting. And instead what we are seeing is a hardening. It is a hardening. And we are always accused of xenophobia if we exalt our country’s awesomeness or make fun of another country’s customs.

Fair enough. I get it. But it’s a two-way street. If you come here and reject assimilation, free speech, cooperation with people different than you. Those are our values and if you reject them, you are xenophobic, you are anti-American. It’s not illegal, I guess. But why are we respecting it and why are we encouraging it? Leftism encourages this sort of behavior. It’s time for the adults to enter the room and basically change the conversation or these cities are gone.

Of course, the question on the minds of many people is obvious. If you hate America, why are you here?
