Kirk Douglas, one of my favorite actors, recently deceased, once quipped that he loved making movies because they were always full of imagination and “make believe.” I love the movie “Wizard of Oz,” because it is so full of imagination and lots of “make believe.”
“Make believe” might be OK for Hollywood, but it hardly seems acceptable amid national and world concerns for aspiring, ambitious leaders trying to make their mark. Joe Biden, however, in a startling display of imagination, “make believe,” and fantasy to boot, has thrown truth and reality to the winds by exclaiming that he wants to “make America moral again.” Whaat?? Joe, say it ain’t so!
Make-Believe-Joe, as you know, is a Democrat whose party had the name of God removed from their party platform in 2012. One mention was finally reinstated only when the Republicans criticized them for that removal. Still, when the one reference to God was reinstated, it was met with resounding boos and chaos from their convention floor. The Republican platform mentioned God 12 times.
The Democrats have shown a disposition to redefine religion as belief that is based on polls, their preferences, and political expediencies. Nancy Pelosi, for one, feels no reserve in lecturing the Pope on his defense of the right-to-life and traditional marriage. She’d like “God” removed from oath taking in testimonies. She’s OK with her Democratic Party that advocates late term abortions up until birth and allowing born survivors of botched abortions to die by withholding life support, feeding and care. You probably know that 177 Dems voted against a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would have protected and forbidden the killing of newborn babies who survive abortions. At last count recently, they have blocked attempts to pass laws prohibiting infanticide at least 50 times. So Joe, this is your party, right?
How the Dems can be O.K. with attempts to abolish our protective, homeland I.C.E. agency, ignore the dangers posed by MS-13 criminal gangs, Antifa, sanctuary cities, illegal crossings of our borders, and “resistance” protestors who quash free speech, dissenting opinion, and religious belief, or even be O.K. with encouraging these thugs – is surely mystifying from the standpoint of national security and love of country. Is this your notion of being moral, Joe? Not to mention abolishing the Electoral College and voter I.D. safeguards in elections, the Constitution in some cases, your wavering support for Israel, even advocating socialism over capitalism or being party to advocating placement of illegal aliens on our Supreme Court? C’mon Joe, what say you?
Really Joe, it’s hard to believe that politicians like yourself, so bereft of moral inclinations, have the audacity to claim that you want to make this country “moral” again. Are you trying to play the wizard, Joe, and really want to re-make this country into your immoral image?
