Halloween, like a lot else, will probably be completely different this yr from earlier years, but it surely additionally provides an analogy that may be utilized to the present presidential marketing campaign.
The aim of Halloween masks is to cover the identification of the particular person carrying them. They’re additionally imagined to be scary. Inversely, as I see it, the aim of the “masks” being worn by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is to assuage those that see and take heed to them and conceal the scary faces beneath.
Politico reported final week that “progressives” (that’s, the far left) have put collectively an agenda they hope to make use of to drag a President Biden of their course. These embrace members of the Home of Representatives, often known as “The Squad,” and teams reminiscent of Black Lives Matter, whose co-founder described herself and fellow organizers as “educated Marxists,” in addition to labor leaders, and different far-left organizations.
They’re calling it the “Folks’s Constitution” and if that sounds a bit like titles favored by communist dictators you wouldn’t be far off. Consider the Folks’s Republic of China and the Democratic Folks’s Republic of Korea as two of a number of examples.
Some conservatives imagine Biden is a instrument of the left and this constitution provides proof to that declare. Biden has no mounted positions, having flipped on quite a few points he as soon as claimed had been his rules, reminiscent of federal funding of abortions, which he opposed for many years, however now favors.
He refuses to say till after the election whether or not he would favor packing the Supreme Courtroom or whether or not he would advocate for including Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., because the 51st and 52nd states, together with 4 possible Democratic senators, solidifying a everlasting Democrat majority and rendering the two-party system useless.
It is the acquainted agenda we’ve heard for years, however with much more that ought to scare everybody. It contains extra free stuff — medical care, school tuition, forgiveness of scholar debt. The evil wealthy can pay for all of it, which is unattainable at this degree of spending.
Democrats type it as People caring for one another, however it’s actually the imposition of presidency “caring” for us. It might addict much more to authorities and thus the politicians and activists who run it. Freedom and liberty could be misplaced as taxes and spending improve and new laws are imposed on weapons and just about every little thing else we’re used to doing on our personal with out authorities intrusion.
Am I exaggerating? Learn for your self the Working Households Celebration’s Folks’s Constitution. Whilst you’re at it, additionally peruse the Biden-Sanders Unity Process Pressure Suggestions, which reads prefer it might have come from the Soviet Union, the place Sanders and his spouse took their honeymoon.
When requested about fees that he’s a socialist, Biden likes to reply, “Do I appear to be a socialist?” As with a lot of his statements the comment is meaningless. What does a socialist appear to be? Higher to have a look at those that lust for energy behind a possible Biden presidency.
Historical past is filled with incidents of what’s known as “the facility behind the throne.” For English literature college students like me, a re-visit to William Shakespeare’s play “Macbeth” depicts the plotting of Woman Macbeth to achieve energy over her husband. It’s a state of affairs acquainted to many nations and cultures.
The “progressives” inside and outdoors the Democratic Celebration have revealed their actual agenda. It’s a seductive one as a result of many individuals will commerce their freedoms in alternate for presidency promising to maintain them. Ultimately, although, such individuals will discover they’ve been tricked after they thought they had been being given treats. That is how dictators usually rise to energy. Learn historical past.
