WND Warms Up To Greene's 'National Divorce' Idea
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has been in favor of splitting up the United States into two separate countries -- one conservative, one liberal -- for a while now. WAyne Allyn Root ranted in a June 2022 column after the Supreme Court overturn Roe v. Wade:

But now to the good news. All is not lost. This Supreme Court abortion decision is the first step toward the solution I've been preaching for what ails America.

I call my solution "DIVORCE, AMERICAN-STYLE."

It's clear we are a nation terribly divided. It's clear we can't live together. There is no longer any compromise possible; the divide is too wide. There is no compromise for open borders and "defund the police." There is no compromise for forced vaccinations for babies and little children. There is no compromise for abortion on demand. There is no compromise for 20% inflation and $10 gas. There is no compromise for letting every rioter, mugger, carjacker and murderer loose while we order FBI SWAT teams to hunt down Republicans who believe the 2020 election was stolen. The days of compromise are over.

So, the peaceful solution is to separate. It's time to go our separate ways. Let's call it a "national divorce." Everyone is familiar with divorce. Everyone has experienced it – whether personally or through friends, family or children. We all know someone divorced.

Half of America is divorced. I've gotten divorced. It's not the end of the world. It's much better to admit you don't like each other and can't live together anymore and separate peacefully. Everyone gets to walk away and live the life they want. It's a win-win.

When far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene calledfor a "national divorce" earlier this year, though, WND didn't immediately latch onto it, publishing only an article stolen from the New York Post. It also published a Feb. 23 column by David Harsanyi calling the idea impractical and admitting that it proposes "secession," going on to insist that "federalism is not only a more desirable solution than breaking the country into two, but also far more feasible."

It took a while, but editor Joseph Farah embraced the "national divorce" thing in his March 20 column, after first claiming disdain for it:

I was troubled when Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene first mentioned the idea of split between red and blue states – a "national divorce," she called it.

I didn't like it at first blush. Maybe it was because I am so opposed to "divorce." Yes, marriage is a sacred institution to God, but though only on the human level. He said nothing about nations – other than Israel. And though He punished His people greatly for rejecting Him, He will forgive them and make Israel whole again soon enough.

But the idea of "divorce" is still despicable to me.

Farah didn't mention that he himself is divorced and is currently on his second marriage. Instead, he explained how he came around to the idea:

The more I thought about her idea, however, the more it had appeal.

A recent poll by Ipsos has opened my eyes to how much vindication, mercy and aid it would offer us.

The shocking new poll shows that one-fifth of Americans agree with splitting – already.

Twenty percent of U.S. adults – which amounts to some 66 million people – want to call it quits on the 247-year-old union. I didn't think that many would be inclined. I thought it was an outlier for sure.


Infidelity is what Greene is thinking. She's just saying that Democrats are not capable or willing to be committed to things like the Constitution, simple ideas like "life" instead of "death," and the growing theory that we don't need police anymore.

It's won't happen overnight, for sure. There are no serious proposals in Washington to carve up the country, but secessionist moves in some states have gathered momentum in recent years. A campaign to have rural eastern Oregon effectively secede from the blue state and join more conservative Idaho has gained traction, with politicians in both states expressing support for moving the border.


Red and blue states don't seem to have much in common – we can't even agree on how to conduct elections. We can't decide whether we should lock up Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden – or Donald Trump.

Root returned with an April 1 column reminding us of how he has always supported the idea and the Donald Trump's (first) indictment should be a catalyst:

The indictment of Trump is your wake-up call. We cannot live with these people. They are a combination of Soviet gulag, East German Stasi and Nazi gestapo. They are intolerant communist tyrants obsessed with controlling your life and eliminating dissent.

Recently, high-profile Republicans have followed my lead. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene made headlines with her calls for a "national divorce." Now multimillionaire CEO and GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has mentioned the need for a national divorce.

Welcome to "Wayne's World." It's about time.

It's been clear to me for years now that we cannot live with Democrats any longer (i.e., crazed, radical, extreme, America-hating, white race-hating, wealth-hating, capitalism-hating, police-hating, military-hating, man-hating, woke, communist, globalist, transgender-obsessed, SUICIDE BOMBERS.

And as you might expect from a guy who making his living as a pro-Trump grifter, this process involves buying a book from him:

I repeat: We need to get away. We need to separate. We need a "national divorce." The question is how?

I have a quick, simple and easy way to start the process that we can carry out from the safety of our living rooms or kitchen tables. It's all explained in my latest book, "The Great Patriot BUY-cott Book." We start by building a "parallel conservative economy." In short, conservatives and patriots take our massive spending power and only spend and invest with companies that are run by conservatives, patriots, Christians and people of faith.

In other words, we FUND the conservative economy, and we DEFUND the leftist, woke economy.

We build a separate economy, a conservative ecosystem. We reward and enrich those on the Right. We punish and bankrupt the evil woke communists on the Left who are currently using our money to destroy America and the great American middle class.

In "The Great Patriot BUY-cott Book," we identify the 123 most conservative patriotic companies in America you can proudly buy from and invest in – without sacrificing your values or funding the destruction of everything we believe in.

A national divorce is complicated and will take many years to achieve. It may never officially happen. But our idea for a parallel conservative economy is the way to achieve an unofficial national divorce. It's a simple, easy start.

Call it a "quickie divorce."

Bob Unruh began an April 19 "news" article claiming the "national divorce" is already happening with his own right-wing-bubble interpretation of the difference between liberals and conservatives:

Greene recently suggested the split because of the seemingly unbridgeable chasm between the extremist positions of leftist Democrats in America – and the more traditional values of Republicans.

The GOP, for example, thinks parents should make decisions for their children, there's no need for taxpayers to pay for surgeries to mutilate the bodies of small children, and uncontrolled spending is not the way for government to operate.

Democrats advocate those life-altering transgender surgeries, virtually unlimited spending and the exclusion of parents from major life decisions involving their children.

Unruh then revealed his alleged evidence, which is just cherry-picked census data forwarded by right-wing writer Paul Bedard:

Now Bedard reports that "national divorce" already appears to be happening "organically."

"A new analysis of Census Bureau data shows that since the 2020 election year, nearly 2.6 million have moved out of counties won by President Joe Biden and into those won by former President Donald Trump," he explained.

The analysis, from Issues and Insights, notes, "More than 61% of the counties that voted for Biden in 2020 lost population, while 65% of Trump-supporting counties gained population."

But correlation does not necessarily equal causation, and no proof is offered that it does here. Also, those stats doesn't take into account that the COVID pandemic created opportunities to work remotely and reduce the need for people to live in expensive cities.
