Commentary: Biden Lashes Out at the Half of the Country That Refuses to Vote for Him

Joe Biden

Neither gender policy, nor multiculturalism, nor climate change. It’s all nonsense that entertains politicians but is useless for winning elections, because voters see it as just that: nonsense. The Democrats have already realized this and have a new reason for you to vote for them: saving democracy. It is funny that the Left, the ideology that has caused more poverty, crimes, and totalitarianism in history, comes to save democracy. But Joe Biden’s speech on Jan. 5 left no room for doubt. It’s your choice: Democrats or chaos.

The only thing they show with this change of direction (they don’t so much as mention Bidenomics anymore) is that they are desperate. After all they’ve committed against Donald Trump, after all they’ve done to muddy the playing field, with all the traps laid out and all the lies, the guy is still leading in the polls, while the zombie in the White House is becoming more and more zombie-like and less and less in the White House.

In his rant on the fifth, Biden said, “Donald Trump’s campaign is about him, not America, not you.” The truth is that the one who keeps talking about Trump is Biden, not Trump.

He added, “Donald Trump’s campaign is obsessed with the past, not the future.”

This from the president of the party that is happy to revise history books, knock down statues, and try to frighten the electorate by shouting, “The fascists are coming!”

My favorite passage from Biden’s speech is the one on political violence: “Political violence is never, ever acceptable in the United States political system — never, never, never.  It has no place in a democracy.  None.”

I am not in favor of political violence either; however, I wish to clarify that taxes seem to me like political violence, any stupid regulation seems to me to be legalistic cruelty, and the illiterate rulers who embarrass the nation with their constant fight with grammar and common sense seem to me a clear example of murdering synapses.

Anyway, Biden shouldn’t be talking about political violence after the enthusiasm Democrats showed for BLM’s trashing. Now that was political violence.

The frightening thing about the president’s speech is not that he devoted very long paragraphs that he must have rehearsed for hours on end to attacking Trump, a feat not devoid of merit considering the state of his mental health. What is frightening, what is truly disturbing, is that Biden is saying something that does attack freedom, democracy, and the nation: He is saying that he is democracy and that his opponent is not, and he is sowing seeds that would allow no chance of Trump (nor probably any other Republican) to return to the White House … even if the Democrats lost the election. 

Thus the Democrats, unfortunately, subscribe to Bolivarian progressive strategy, although of Venezuelan origin, later adopted by Argentina and now employed by several European parties. It is a matter of dragging the party to the most extreme point on the left and, once there, drawing a line on the ground to treat as “extreme right” and “anti-democratic” anything that falls outside.

It is a strategy that worked for a while in Argentina and that continues to work in Venezuela for one simple reason: because the next step is to build up an extreme-left totalitarian regime “to prevent the right wing from coming in and ending democracy.” Already in Venezuela there is only dictatorship. In Argentina, there is hope. In Spain, we are still suffering the consequences of the total cancellation of all those who are not extreme leftists. And in the United States, the land of freedom, Biden now wants to create that same prison.

It is a danger. But above all, it is an indignity.
