For reasons that those of us on the right side of the political aisle will never understand, Democrats are always of the opinion that the United States of America is in need of overhauling. Barack Obama famously (infamously?) said that he wanted to “fundamentally transform” America. Thankfully, he was unable to completely do that. Now Obama’s senile Mini-Me, Joe Biden, is parroting his former boss and going on about “rebuilding” and “transforming” our beloved country. Bryan wrote about Crazy Joe the Wonder Veep’s basement campaign here yesterday, and it’s a magnificent post.
We’ve just spent several days being told that President Trump’s Mt. Rushmore speech was dark and divisive. Patriotism is very much out of fashion on the Left these days. It the eyes of the Democratic half of this country, America is racist, broken, and almost irreparably damaged. When I hear a leftist describe the United States, I can’t believe we’re living in the same place.
Sure, we have our flaws as a nation, but we’re not in need of a complete rebuilding. As Bryan pointed out, the places most in need of fixing have one thing in common:
If we must read more kinetic tea leaves, since no reporter will ask Joe those two words, let’s look at what’s happening in Democrat-run cities around the country. About 26 years of patient law enforcement work to bring violent crime down from its historic high in the early 1990s has been undone in a month. As Kevin McCollough put it over the weekend, Six Weeks, Six Cities, 600 Murders. Kevin’s piece is a must-read.
That old public service announcement about “This is your brain, this is your brain on drugs” comes to mind here. The Democratic hell hole cities are the country on leftism. Most of the Democrat-run cities have been dominated by one party for decades, so it’s all on them. Imagine that writ large with the Democrats in control of the White House, the Senate, and the House.
Let’s get back to the whole notion of transformation. The Democrats’ constant refrain about America needing to be changed is wearisome. It’s also being taught in public schools. The woke youth of today go into adulthood truly believing that the United States is terribly broken and in desperate need of a socialist fix. That’s really the end game for modern Democrats. It wasn’t just a few years ago but the whole party has rushed off of the far-left fringe. They aren’t so much interested in “transformation” as they are “undoing.”
America is just fine, thank you. Warts and all, this 244-year-old experiment in freedom is — put mildly — freakin’ glorious. Every leftist who says America needs to be rebuilt or transformed is lying.
What’s really disturbing is that Joe Biden is the most moderate of the Dems to emerge from that large primary field. If he’s going on about transformation then the center of American politics has moved too far to ever get it back to anything resembling “normal.”
We’re fine here, Joe. We won’t be needing your help.
