In PART ONE we discussed the opening of Biden’s recent COVID-19 speech, which was cheerful and upbeat. Just kidding. It was filled with moments of despondency and despair.
Let’s pick up where we left off, and I’ll give you my take on his comments.
“Do as I tell you and we’ll eventually get through this.”
- Okay, I’m paraphrasing the “do as I tell you” part, but. . .seriously? We’ve spent a full year doing as we were told, and see where that has gotten us? Censored, broke, and feeling pretty dang hopeless. I have a better idea. Why don’t our representatives do what we tell them for a change? Isn’t that why we elected them in the first place, to represent us?
“My fellow Americans, you’re owed nothing less than the truth. And for all of you asking when things will get back to normal, here is the truth.”
- And that, my friends, is the biggest lie of all. We’re supposed to believe that, in spite of all of the false narratives, censorship, and outright persecution against conservatives, this administration is going to be fully truthful to us. If you believe that, I have some swamp land down in Louisiana I’d love to sell you.
“And thank god we’re making some real progress now. In my first full day in office, I outlined for you a comprehensive strategy to beat this pandemic. We’ve spent every day since attempting to carry it out.”
- First of all, why the small “g” in god? A simple typo? As for the rest, I can only clear my throat and ask, “WHAT comprehensive strategy?” This has been a chief complaint against Biden from day one, that he appeared not to have a strategy.
“And now, at the direction and with the assistance of my administration, Johnson & Johnson is working together with a competitor, Merck, to speed up and increase the capacity to manufacture new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is one shot.”
- Interpretation: Trump’s administration let you down. My administration is going to save you. (I refer back to the “trust our government” line a few paragraphs up.)
“In the coming weeks, we will issue further guidance on what you can and cannot do once fully vaccinated to lessen the confusion, to keep people safe, and encourage more people to get vaccinated.”
- Guidance on what you can and cannot do. Need I say more?
“I need you to get vaccinated when it’s your turn and when you can find an opportunity. And to help your family, your friends, your neighbors get vaccinated as well.
- The government “needs” this from us. One has to ask, “Why?”
“Because here’s the point. If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the 4, there’s a good chance you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day. That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together.”
- The point is, (according to Biden), IF we do as we’re told, IF we submit, IF we have the vaccine, IF we coerce others into doing the same, IF we place our trust and faith in the government, IF we believe our former president was really the heel they say he is, then all will be will.
I don’t know about you, friends, but that’s way too many “ifs” for me.
