Then-VP Joe Biden remained silent about national solidarity after Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016 and never asked the so-called Resistance to dial back their rage, former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz recalled. “Never heard a peep from him about unity.”
In an Op-Ed for the Fox News website, Chaffetz observed that Biden’s convenient appeal for healing along with his claim that “the better angels of America are back” just constitute empty, meaningless rhetoric.
“And just like that, ‘Resistance’ is no longer in fashion. The rules have been rewritten. When Democrats hold power, we must be unified, and our opposition must be silent. Not to be confused with the rules when Republicans hold power – which are that Resistance is as American as apple pie,” Chaffetz explained about the apparent double-standard.
The former lawmaker described how disgruntled Clinton voters who comprised the Resistance cohort in a coordinated effort disrupted his town hall meeting after the election. “Similar acts of sabotage were replicated around the country, all following a script developed by Resistance activists. Back then, we were assured protests were the American way.”
The Resistance also manifested itself, among other places, in the federal bureaucracy which continually tried to thwart President Trump’s American First agenda.
Resist. Overturn. Boycott. Surveil. Leak. Impeach. And now they tell us it’s time to heal. Where were they for the last four years?

Biden vows to heal divided nation https://t.co/LslK9qk5ig >><> Good luck with that. We just saw the Democrat Party machine in action. There will be no "healing" for millions who witnessed this farce.

Chaffetz, who is a Fox News contributor, pointed out that Trump voters are peaceful, but they will make their voices heard.
“In reality, it’s highly unlikely Trump supporters will replicate the violence, the hate, and the looting that characterized so many leftist protests over the last four years. But if Democrats believe Americans are obligated to passively stand by while they pursue an agenda that hurts American workers and limits their fundamental rights, they will be disappointed.
“Americans will not be silent. Instead, we will take the wins President Trump left us and use them to defend against a leftist agenda we believe undermines the very core of American values.”
Multi-millionaire Michelle Obama didn’t waste any time bashing Trump voters as supporting “lies, hate, chaos, and division.”

“In other words, Trump voters, more than 70 million of them, are idiots. Doesn’t sound like a move for unity to me,” Chaffetz observed about the ex-First Lady’s tweet.
While the news networks — including Fox — prematurely handed the win to Biden when the contest is still in a state of flux, yet another statistical and unheard of anomaly casts even more doubt on the presidential vote totals.
That is, the absence of a blue wave while Biden was allegedly winning. For example, the GOP picked up (rather than lost, as the pollsters anticipated) U.S. House of Representative seats and solidified their hold on state legislatures.
No one knows how the Trump team’s legal challenges will end up, but Chaffetz concluded his essay on a note of encouragement:
“Whatever happens over the next three months, Republicans will move forward with optimism and confidence. The 2020 election brought new constituencies to the tent, with Trump’s share of votes among traditional Democrat constituencies increasing across the board. Latinos, Muslims, LGBT voters, blue collar workers, union members and many others aligned with an emerging coalition that will shape American politics far beyond the 2020 election.”
