Things Won’t Get Better Under Biden

If someone put me on the spot, I would say that my best guess is the empty vessel that is Joe Biden will be elected in November. I don’t know if it will be official on election night – in fact, I anticipate a brutal and acrimonious legal fight in the days following November 3rd over it – but I think mail-in ballots will tip the election in Biden’s favor.

For a time there was a part of me that thought the election of Biden might actually tamp down some of the angst and rage that defines so much of American culture these days. It seems a foregone conclusion, after all, that if Trump is re-elected the entire Democrat Media Complex has vowed to not accept it. They’ve promised nothing short of riots in the streets – riots that make the scenes from Kenosha, Minneapolis, and Portland appear mild by comparison.

But if Biden is elected, I considered (and I don’t think I’m alone), maybe it buys us more time before this whole thing goes up in smoke, before this hopelessly divided nation tears itself apart.

I no longer believe that.

Because the problem is deeper than political, either election outcome will do little to impact it. If Trump wins, it will provide impetus and “justification” for the riots to persist. The media will continue misrepresenting their nature because they will want to see the country burn for re-electing Trump. It will be ugly.

But if Biden wins, it will affirm and reward the rioting. It will signal to the malcontents who hate this country that their tactics of terror and strategy of intimidation is effective. That’s not going to help the situation at all.

Further, feeling beholden to the mob that elected him, we’ll be treated to four years (provided he makes it that long) of relentless pandering to our new woke masters. Truth will be ignored – just as 2+2 can equal 5 in this world of “anti-racism” and “anti-white supremacy,” cultural realities will be cast aside for the propagation of an agenda. If math can be redefined, why can’t history be rewritten?

For those paying attention, Biden gave us a glimpse of what I mean last week:

We can assume that Biden is referring to Lewis Latimer. But Latimer didn’t invent the incandescent bulb. Three years after Edison, Latimer patented a better manufacturing approach to carbon filaments.

But notice the lack of media scrutiny for an obvious falsehood. Notice the lack of cultural lament over the willful ignorance of a man who would be president. It’s because it doesn’t matter, truth doesn’t matter, and under a Biden presidency it won’t. What matters is the narrative.
