The left seems to have trouble with the truth

AGAIN, THEY LIED TO YOU:  Now Biden Tells Us: ‘Nothing We Can Do to Change Trajectory of Pandemic in Coming Months’.

If you’re one of the thousands of people who voted for Biden, and have already lost your job – don’t worry, great news – they’re changing the picture on the 20-dollar bill.

If you’re one of the thousands of people who voted for Biden, and have already lost your job – don’t worry, great news … Trump’s military transgender policy has been reversed.

If you’re one of the thousands of people who voted for Biden, and have already lost your job – don’t worry, great news … insulin and gas prices are about to triple.

“We all want to put this awful chapter in our nation’s history behind us. But healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability.”

Said Chuck Schumer, quoted in “Schumer agrees to two-week delay of Trump’s impeachment trial/The ex-president’s second trial is now set to begin the week of Feb. 8” (Politico).

Is there truth in those sentences?

“We all want to put this awful chapter in our nation’s history behind us.”

Who is “we”? The Senators or the people? I don’t think he’d say “All we Senators want to put this awful chapter in our nation’s history behind us.” That would be enraging. More than 74 million people voted for Trump, and the point of the impeachment, now that he is out of office, is to disqualify him from running for office again — to deprive the people of the option of ever voting for him. It’s flatly wrong to assert that we all want Trump powerfully and absolutely excluded from electoral politics.

But what is “this awful chapter” that we are told we all want “to put… behind us”? The past is always behind us (assuming you use the conventional metaphor that time is a walk and we’re facing forward), but there’s some fuzzy idea of doing something to the past that makes it more behind us — resolved somehow or less accessible. But if the point of the trial is to bar Trump from running for office, Schumer is talking about manipulating the future, not alienating us from the past.

What is the “awful chapter”? Is it the January 6th attack on the Capitol or is it the entire Trump presidency? We all deplore Trump and want to sever him from our understanding of ourselves? But obviously we don’t all want that. Biden enters the presidency with a poll — from Rasmussen — that has the exact same percentages of approval and disapproval that Trump had on his last day — 48% approve, 45% disapprove.

Of course, Schumer is explaining waiting until February 8th. The next sentence is:

“But healing and unity will only come if there is truth and accountability.” 

The implication is that by spending 2 weeks prepping for trial — after the House voted without taking any time at all — we’ll get a proceeding that will deliver “truth and accountability.” Another way to read that sentence is that there will never be healing and unity, because it will only come if there is truth and accountability, and that’s not going to happen. Who believes the 2 weeks will be used to ensure that the trial is centered on the truth?

And isn’t the delay designed to give President Biden a little time to establish himself in the presidential role, to bask in the positive light the media are shining on him, before the harsh spotlight returns to Trump and it’s all about “this awful chapter”?

JASON WHITLOCK: I stand by my comparison of BLM to the KKK — no matter who might object.

Cultural changes and technological advances explain the difference in tactics between the KKK of old and its modern-day successor, BLM. Burning buildings have replaced burning crosses. Social media lynch mobs destroy a person’s character, strike fear, and silence dissent.

In the KKK’s heyday, a black man could have his life destroyed for making eye contact with a white woman. In BLM’s heyday, a black man can have his life destroyed for expressing an opinion that contradicts the ideology of white liberals.

The Klan has been described as “the terrorist wing of the Democratic Party.” The events of the last summer would lead one to believe that BLM are the shock troops of the Democratic Party, at a minimum.
