Gotta love it when the mainstream media is becoming less and less enamored with Biden, though it’s a real shame they didn’t raise all these red flags before.
Especially gotta love it when the mainstream media blasts the inauthenticity of Biden’s most recent (raging) speech, in which he demonstrated a staggering lack of self-awareness.
Invoking George Washington, Biden was so aggressive in his ranting and raving that even mainstream media outlets have taken a pause, such as The Hill.
The Hill, which is not exactly renowned for its conservative views, is also clearly becoming edgy about Mr. Biden and his delusions of grandeur.
Just consider the rather blunt headline.
“Joe Biden is no George Washington, and Valley Forge proved it,” the headline blared.
The story to follow was even better, as contributor Jonathan Turley issued a scathing condemnation of Biden’s rather “Orwellian” speech.
Turley began the opinion piece by citing one of Biden’s (many) poorly conceived lines during the speech.
At one point, while ranting and raving about Trump, Biden proclaimed, “this is like something out of a fairy tale, a bad fairy tale.”
Humorously, Turley found this remark just as applicable to Biden.
“That line, from the speech of President Joe Biden at Valley Forge this week, may have been the most accurate observation in the entire address kicking off Biden’s 2024 campaign … The speech was a masterpiece of contradiction. Biden started by denouncing how Donald Trump’s campaign is only ‘about him’ and ‘obsessed with the past.’ He then spent virtually all of the speech obsessing about Trump and Jan. 6, 2021. It was an early indication of the Orwellian character of the speech,” Turley observed.
Turley also skewered Biden for claiming that voting for him is voting for so-called “democracy,” especially when the Democrats are doing everything in their power to move towards a one-party state.
“Biden spoke of how Democrats are fighting to protect the “right to vote.” Democratic activists and officials across the country are seeking to remove Trump from the ballot even though he is the most popular choice for the presidency right now … In fact, dozens of Democratic officials have sought to remove 126 Republicans from Congress on the same basis,” Turley continued.
Yep. Par for the course for wannabe dictators.
One of the more humorous lines in the opinion piece occurred when Turley effectively alluded to the Democrats as wannabe dictators, chiefly when he invoked Henry T. Ford.
“Democratic officials are approaching democracy the way Henry Ford responded to calls for different color choices for the Model T. He pledged to provide ‘any color the customer wants, as long as it’s black.’ In this election, voters can choose anyone they want, as long as it is Biden,” Turley continued.
So, in other words, the Democrats want Russian style elections. Go figure.
The best part of all, however, occurs when Turley scathingly contrasts Biden’s divisive militantism with George Washington’s authentic inclusion.
“[Biden] did everything he could to channel the spirit of George Washington, short of appearing in a Continental uniform … Of course, Washington was a unifying figure in his time,” Turley mused.
Was he ever.
In fact, Biden’s lame efforts to invoke Washington only reveal how powerful the first president remains centuries later, and how easily he can show up Biden with his own words.
And, unlike Biden, Washington was not heavily reliant on ghostwriters, and he definitely didn’t need notecards to remember which door to enter or which audience he was addressing.
In fact, even more ironically, Washington warned against the exact same behavior Biden is doing now in his “Farewell Address.”
“While then every part of our country thus feels an immediate and particular interest in union, all the parts combined cannot fail to find in the united mass of means and efforts greater strength, greater resource, proportionably greater security from external danger, a less frequent interruption of their peace by foreign nations; and, what is of in- estimable value!
They must derive from union an exemption from those broils and wars between themselves which so frequently afflict neighboring countries not tied together by the same government, which their own rivalships alone would be sufficient to produce, but which opposite foreign alliances, attachments, and intrigues would stimulate and embitter,” Washington warned in his “Farewell Address.”
Alas, Biden and his entire family have thrived off of “foreign alliances” and “attachments” for decades, with zero concern about national security impacts.
On top of that, Biden also is not interested in a “united mass,” considering he called 74 million Trump voters “traitors.”
Heck, had Biden been the so-called “leader” after the American Revolution, he would have likely happily sold all thirteen colonies back to Britain for a pittance.
Alas, in the twenty-first century, he’s sold fifty states to Beijing instead.
