Joe Biden was officially sworn in today as the 46th president of the United States, promising to bring an end to the “uncivil war” that he believes has left the country deeply divided and reeling from a bad economy and the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 400,000 Americans.
Yeah. You know how he plans to end it? By working to silence conservative voices as much as he possibly can. Hey, we’re united together if we all believe the same thing, right?
What’s wrong with groupthink?
Just ask Orwell.
With his hand on a five-inch-thick heirloom Bible that has been in his family for more than a century, Biden took the oath of office administered by U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts that binds the president to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
“Through a crucible for the ages, America has been tested anew, and America has risen to the challenge,” Biden said in his inaugural address. “Today we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate but of a cause: the cause of democracy…At this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed.”
Biden, 78, became the oldest U.S. president in history at a scaled-back ceremony in Washington that was largely stripped of its usual pomp and circumstance, due both to the coronavirus and security concerns following the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol.
Given his age and mental condition, if you think Biden is making it through to the end of his term, you’re nuts. We’ll be seeing the first woman president real soon. Her name will be Kamala Harris.
Biden is a dang dinosaur. We’ll be lucky if he doesn’t need a walker and a nurse by his side to deliver his State of the Union address.
“To overcome these challenges to restore the soul and secure the future of America requires so much more than words. It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy: unity,” President Biden said. “We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this – if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts.”
Biden then asked for Americans who didn’t vote for him to give him a chance to be their president. Well, you are the president, Mr. Biden, whether I like it or not. And I don’t. Believe me.
But that doesn’t mean I, or any other American, needs to “give you a chance.” That’s not going to happen. Instead, real conservatives will engage with your policies and fight them tooth and nail with the tools God has given us in this great country of ours, in a peaceful way. The right way.
