TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Just days ago, the Senate's most celebrated moral philosopher, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, spoke for the country's entire ruling class when he explained the rationale for his views on immigration: "Diversity is our strength."

Now, you've heard that phrase before, obviously. You hear it every day. In effect, it's our new national motto, soon to replace the outdated and in fact polar opposite sentiment, "E pluribus unum." "Diversity is our strength," it'll be in our currency before long, trust me. But what exactly does it mean?

You may have noticed that nobody ever bothers to explain exactly what it means. And more pressingly, is it true? The less we have in common, the stronger we are? Is a marriage stronger when spouses have radically different beliefs? Are you closer to your kids when you share no common points of reference? Do you speak the same language as your best friend? Could you be best friends if you didn't?

These are important questions, given that our leaders are radically and permanently changing our country, wholly on the basis of their faith that diversity is, in fact, our strength. Maybe we should have talked this through ahead of time. Somehow, we didn't.

[...]

In other words, diversity isn't our strength. Unity is our strength. Don't [let] the left lie to you, that doesn't mean we have to look alike. It doesn't mean we have to come from the same places. It does mean we have to share common beliefs. Otherwise, we will hate each other and the whole enterprise will fall apart. That's true in families, it's true in friendships and it's true in countries, too. You already knew that, because it's obvious. Our leaders spend most of their time denying it. They are lying to us.
