[Ed. – And in his infinite wisdom, he thinks this is all because of the pandemic, which has been the latest in two decades of political flash points? He thinks Obama’s divisions along racist lines did not help fuel any of this?]
CNN’s Jim Acosta celebrated “the country coming together” in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, noting that while the U.S. has since become divided, “we can be this country again.”
At some point after Sept. 11, said Acosta, “we lost our way,” and listed the invasion of Iraq and financial crisis of 2008 as examples.
“We didn’t just become divided, we let hate into our hearts for each other,” Acosta added. “There was an expression used after 9/11: ‘all gave some, some gave all.’ We don’t really do that anymore. Some of us don’t want to give anything at all. We live in separate worlds now. We don’t agree on the same facts anymore. We can’t even agree on wearing masks or getting vaccinated to end this pandemic.”
