After a horrible week for the Biden administration, they decided Monday March 22, 2021 to put a lid on press coverage at 1:35PM EST. Makes sense when facing a barrage of multiple public crisis, that the administration’s policies caused. Also, there is now a president who has been holding out on a press conference for the longest period of time in a century is not a good sign.
It is obvious now that the Biden team walked into this situation flat footed and unaware of the change of circumstances over the last 4 years. They are realizing that just because they cancelled Trump’s policies the rest of the world would comply. Then they realized that their strategy domestically made them weak to our adversaries.
The left was so power thirsty and hungry for power they turned on their own, the American people. Hillary Clinton famously called Trump supporters a basket of deplorables. Currently there are thousands of national guard troops guarding the US capitol with unloaded guns to prevent a threat of imaginary 4-Chan chatter.
The minority within the majority
The republicans quickly learned that their “tea party” wing was more harmful to them than the democrats were to them. Once Trump took office, he did not have the discipline in the house republicans to pass sweeping legislation that may have been passed by reconciliation in the senate.
The Democrat leadership was enthralled by the wave of enthusiasm created by the kooky Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders created. When was the last time Nancy Pelosi filled the Breslin Center, home of the Michigan State Spartan Basketball team to talk about social security and Medicare? Yet in 2016 Bernie Sanders a 70-something-year-old filled an arena doing just that.
The Marxism problem within the democratic party has been one it has had to deal with increasing in frequency. For many people we were hoping for a change in the extreme social conservatism brought on by the G.W. Bush administration. The Marxists found a ripe target religious intolerance and old-fashioned values.
While many of us in the libertarian value system of “live and let live” were shocked by a new furor in retribution to perceived enemies of such aims the left insisted in their righteousness. It was like the playground castle at elementary school had been taken over by kids who lived across the street.
You see on your side of the street you had a park with a play castle that you and your friends played in. Then one day some kids from the other side of the street came to play but did not follow the norms of the others. The kids from the original side decide to band together against the newcomers. Then the newcomers organize a response and ultimately gain control of the playground.
When the newcomers now in the minority of population but in control of the castle are in charge it is time to strike back. To avenge the perceived wrongs onto the children who once played at the castle they come up with rules to exclude the other children. The children who once loved the park decide to leave.
That is precisely where we are at a small but particular loud group of people have overtaken the public playground. They were pissed because they didn’t like the rules, so they banded together against a largely trusting public. If they think they are getting something over on the American people, they are high. I can’t imagine confronting the rancher in Idaho over his gun rights.
