When a Navy vessel is under attack or suffers a catastrophic emergency the ship’s captain declares general quarters. Without a second thought, thousands of individuals (conservatives and liberals) drop everything they are doing and come together as one cohesive unit to save the ship.
America is in General Quarters.
We have an All Hands On Deck evolution that is being impeded by people telling half the ship to fuck off. Our ship is taking on water at a rate that will sink us and half the damage control team is busy telling the other half to get away from the hole in the ship, they have it covered.
Is this metaphor to esoteric or am I getting through here?
If it isn’t clear enough, let me slow it down: The American Left is not enough to save the ship on their own. We also need moderate republicans and right-leaning independents who understand the severity of our plight to jump in and help. They may have different methods, but most are trying to save the ship, not sink it faster.
So what if they think the emergency was an accident and not deliberate sabotage?
