“History will be kind to me,” Winston Churchill said, “because I intend to write it.”
Britain’s great statesman did as he promised, but Joe Biden has an even sweeter deal.
He doesn’t need to put pen to paper because a cottage industry of so-called journalists is already twisting truth to make the failing president a victim, if not a hero. It’s as if somebody in an old newsroom called out, “Sweetheart, get me rewrite,” and a thousand scribes raised their hands to volunteer to make Biden look like something other than the second coming of Jimmy Carter.
History, schmistory. No need to wait — this is fiction on the fly!
“What Choice Does Biden Have?” The New Yorker magazine asked, before answering:
“With the impending evisceration of Roe v. Wade, partisanship is the only course for a President in our broken system.”
See, the “system” is always “broken” when Democrats don’t get their way. Only when they win is America a real democracy.
And by saying “partisanship” is the only lane open for Biden, the implication is that up to now Old Joe has been the bipartisan uniter he promised to be at his inauguration. That’s when he used the word “unity” or synonyms 19 times.
My favorite line was when he declared, “This is a great nation and we are a good people.”
The momentary bow to patriotism came after a campaign where he blasted the nation as “systematically racist” and before he denounced voter-ID laws as “Jim Crow 2.0.”
Since then, his administration has effectively defined “extremist” as anybody who disagrees with its far-left dogma, including parents objecting to school racial and sexual indoctrination. After the Supreme Court’s abortion draft leaked, he called the “MAGA crowd” the “most extreme political organization in US history.”
But definitely let’s have unity —and a kooky Minister of Disinformation to make sure only officially approved messages get heard!
