"Now is the time for all Americans to speak up when history is being erased, books are being banned, and diversity is being attacked," exhorted Joe Biden.
Biden tweeted that on Thursday, or did he "X" it? Well, we all wish he would — but I digress.
Now is the time for all Americans to speak up when history is being erased, books are being banned, and diversity is being attacked.— President Biden (@POTUS) August 29, 2023
The tweet is yet another masterpiece of a sentence that typifies Joe Biden. It's riddled with a pinch of accusing others of his (and the Democrats') misdeeds, a dash of expressing remorse over the wrong thing (in this case, parents not wanting their children corrupted and groomed by perverted books), and a sprinkle of senility.
Let's consider his claims one at a time.
Presuming Biden is talking about the ever-changing American landscape, he is somewhat correct. But who is doing the erasing?
Are politically conservative individuals gathering in mobs to tear down statues of historical figures? Are politically conservative individuals burning down cities in "fiery but mostly peaceful protests"? Are politically conservative politicians incessantly working to undermine the Constitution of the United States?
And then there is abortion, which quite literally erases generations that could have been. The practice doesn't merely end a pregnancy, as Democrats like to euphemize. It kills someone's son or daughter, grandchild, cousin, and so forth. But, of course, the Democrats are religiously committed to their macabre sacrament of abortion just as the Canaanites were committed to Moloch, their god of child sacrifice.
Presuming Biden is talking about books like Gender Queer and Lawn Boy, which are in public school libraries and accessible to children as young as 12, then, again, he is only sort of correct.
For example, in Fairfax County, Virginia, the books were taken down and then reshelved as the battle rages on between parents and school boards. And, by the way, nobody ever argued these books should be entirely banned. They argued the books do not belong on public school shelves for children as young as 12, and for good reason.
The books discuss and depict abnormal sexual acts using words and realistic drawings. For example … no, I will spare you. Having had to look through those books to verify the information as one reporting on the situation, I assure you, they are depictions of sordid and sterile sexual acts.
Furthermore, I trust Biden realizes there are still some standards in America, for example, movie ratings like PG-13, meaning some material that may be inappropriate for children under 13. I am guessing a movie that showed cartoon characters engaging in bizarre sexual acts would likely not be rated G or PG-13.
In a nutshell, Joe Biden and the Democrats are upset that parents don't want their 12-year-old children exposed to these perverted books. That is really quite weird. The parents' motives are perfectly rational and rather obvious to anyone of goodwill. But what is motivating Biden et al.?
In other words, why on earth do Biden and the Democrats want young and impressionable children perusing images of abnormal sexual acts?
Really? Oh dear.
The Democrats often talk about unity. Then they divide everybody into opposing factions. It is obvious they do not actually want those factions to be unified. In fact, much of the time, they are the ones who create the factions in the first place.
Think of what can be called "the war on cops" or "the war on democracy" — Democrats love that last one! Of course, the United States of America is a federal constitutional republic, not a democracy, but whatever.
As to Biden's call to action — "Now is the time for all Americans to speak up" — no, sir, not now. You would only further weaponize the DOJ to silence them. I am guessing Americans will speak loudly and clearly in 2024.
