Fox News host Will Cain told Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night that the US was being divided by the elites in power and those who stand up to government overreach.
Cain said: “A day after the FBI’s raid on former president Donald Trump we are starting to see what a permanent national split looks like. A divorce. Nobody wants to say it out loud, but it’s true. And this is not simply a break between Democrats and Republicans.”
Will Cain: The FBI is interested in one mission and that is “eliminating rivals of the Uniparty and permanent Washington.”

Cain went on to say that the state was silencing political opponents: “That’s too simple. What we are seeing is a divide between people who are willing to use the power of the state to silence their opponents and those who are unwilling.”
He continued: “What’s held this country together since the Civil War? It’s not the federal code, it’s not even the Bill of Rights, as important as that document is.”
Cain said that even “the Soviet Union” had a “bill or rights.”
“It guaranteed freedom of speech and equal rights. But in practice, the Bolsheviks assassinated their political opponents and sent their dissidents to the gulags.”
“What’s kept us functioning through the centuries where the Bolsheviks failed is that our Constitution separated powers and prevented a ‘Uniparty.’ We also had an understanding that state power shall not be used for improper political purposes.”
“The law must be enforced equally, without political considerations. And once you lose that common understanding, it’s mutually assured destruction. Nobody had any reason to uphold the system, so the system will collapse.”
Cain isn’t the only one to criticize the Biden administration, aside from Trump himself. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis compared the US to a “Banana Republic,” and said that the Biden “Regime” is hiring more IRS agents to attack the country’s citizens.
DeSantis posted on Twitter, “The raid of [Mar-a-Lago] is another escalation in the weaponization of federal agencies against the Regime’s political opponents, while people like Hunter Biden get treated with kid gloves. Now the Regime is getting another 87k IRS agents to wield against its adversaries? Banana Republic.”
