Pretend pResident Biden’s “inauguration” speech: a review

The greatest orator since…Ogabe?

While he was delivering his address, I was so focused on the question of the day—would he get through it without zoning out?—that I barely noticed how vapid and mendacious the speech itself was.

But it was both of those things, in spades—vapid and mendacious.

It was ironic to find oneself listening to such a piece of drivel after four years during which the media told us, repeatedly, that Donald Trump spoke at the level of a middle schooler—and spoke too roughly and bluntly, in a style that was scandalously “unpresidential.”

After the speech, Biden and Harris drove out to Arlington National Cemetery. Why wait till the last minute? I wondered whether she was bringing along a shovel.

But back to the speech. Reportedly composed in part by Jon Meacham, that slick operator, it was delivered by a wraithlike figure who may or may not have been fully aware of what he was saying as he read the words off his teleprompter. All in all, a dispiriting and rather creepy experience. But the media, after four years of depicting Trump as a semi-literate Satan, felt obliged to celebrate Biden as a silver-tongued saint.

Chris Wallace of Fox News called it “the best inaugural address I ever heard.” George Stephanopoulos of ABC said it was “powerful.” On CNN, Van Jones proclaimed that “there was not one part of that that wasn’t just medicine in the wound…Joe Biden is going to train us to see the world differently.”

Ridiculous, all of it, needless to say, although that last bit from Jones brushed up against a certain unsettling truth. First, note that Jones’ vision was right out of scripture: “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth” (Revelations 21:1). And don’t forget St. Paul: “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known” (1 Corinthians 13:12). All of which fits neatly into the new practice of treating Biden as quasi-divine.

No, Biden can’t train us to see the world anew. But with enough power, he and his party, which now controls both houses of Congress, may well be able to compel a great many of us to pretend, at least, out of a sense of self-preservation, to see the world through a new set of eyes—in short, to parrot obediently the brave new gospel of critical race theory, white supremacy, gender fluidity, and so on. Lies, all of them, but refuse to subscribe to them and you’ll risk being branded an enemy of the truth.

The addle-pated Rapist In Thief won’t be “training” me to do a goddamned thing, neither jack nor shit, no matter how unctuously he urges his Brave New World on me. He is not my President, and his “America” is not my country. They can both burn in Hell for a thousand years for all me, and their miscellaneous and sundry brigades of orcs right along with ’em.

Just preparing the battlespace for ‘Biden the sainted martyr’ that is clearly coming. Everyone except senile old Joe knows he is going to be disposed of right quick like; the only question is exactly how they do it. I used to think it would be COVID to justify more lockdowns, but they are already doing that anyway. Now I expect a ‘white supremecist MAGA gunman’ false flag to send old Joe off stage as Historic!Harris begins the mass gun confiscations.

Whatever means they choose, the addle-brained fossil is not long for this world. And the ensuing media hagiography will be revoltingly predictable.

They missed their best window on that one. With all the buildup they gave it, staging something like that during the inauguration would have been perfect timing and optics for them.

While I have no quibble with the notion they’ll off biden, I’m wondering why bother? The puppet masters have the near perfect puppet as is. And a back up should it falter.

Biden is too obviously mentally unfit, and the senile old dude is guaranteed to blurt out things his controllers would prefer not get mentioned. They needed him for the election since Harris can’t generate enthusiasm even from Dem base voters, so they had to prop him up and try to make him look sort of functional. But now they can get a better, more competent puppet in place.

Also, identity politics demands the old white guy be gotten rid of. All the frustrated Hillary supporters who truly believe Trump conspired with Putin to deny them their “historic” victory are so close to having that first woman president they have dreamed of their entire lives. No way the Dem insiders do not give it to them.

Hilliary probably wants them both to get dead in a hail of bullets but that just lets Peelousy to become historic first woman President.

Do any of them, Dementia Man, Heels Up, or Crooked, realize that not actually winning an Election is therefore not an actual “accomplishment”.

Yeah Yeah I know…

SteveF

Are you serious? Come on, man! The protests are not going to stop. What difference does it make?

Barry

“Biden is too obviously mentally unfit…”

The better to rub it in our face.

HazHap

It was surprising that they wasted all that media hype and build up, isn’t it?

kennycan

They have a real soft spot for Creepy Joe after all.

Nah, I didn’t believe that when I typed it.
