Finding the Thread in Biden's Failures
it's activism, baby
Today at American Greatness, Victor Davis Hanson lists all the failures on President Biden’s watch:
Messing up mideast relationships
Interfering in Israel domestic politics
Erasing southern border
Fentanyl drug crisis
Screwing the working class
Worst inflation in 40 years
Weaponizing justice system against Out Party
Covering up Biden family grifting
Defunding police while crime explodes
Marginalizing opposition with pejoratives
And I would say, Hanson missed out:
Violating First Amendment with social media censorship
Wrecking the economy with war on fossil fuels
Corrupting the culture with LGBT
Dividing the races with DEI
Neutering business with ESG
Given that President Biden is a remarkably weak president because of cognitive decline and because he has always been a lightweight throughout his political career, what are we to think?
I think that the way to understand the Biden years is that the United States is headless. There is nobody to discipline the various enthusiasms of our educated ruling class, and tell the kiddies to keep in line. There is nobody with the cultural power to tell the various political cults in our educated ruling class to cool their jets.
Thus every creative cult in our educated class is pushing its agenda with maximum force, instinctively knowing that there will never be a better time than right now. It’s like the Sixties, only the educated class is much bigger than it was half a century ago.
And, of course, the educated class has enormous power to push its various agendas, through domination of the media, education, the legal system and the administrative system. Let’s just call it activism.
Let’s face it; there is no way to stop this madness. Not until it brings us to ruin.
I just hope that it’s just a little ruin that brings the mad plunge of the Gadarene swine to an end.
