The TV Show You Didn’t Watch

Yesterday my brother and I went to Denney’s for a late breakfast. They have TV screens around the restaurant, and the Biden inauguration was on every screen, but without sound. So you could say I watched the ceremony — that is to say, I glanced up and saw Joe raise his right hand with his left hand on the Bible — but mainly, I ignored it.

“Few people in our nation’s history have been more challenged or found a time more challenging or difficult than the time we are in now. . . .
“The cry for survival comes from the planet itself. A cry that can’t be any more desperate or any more clear. And now a rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront and we will defeat. . . .
“We need all of our strength to persevere through this dark winter. We are entering what may be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus. . . .
“We face an attack on our democracy and on truth, a raging virus, growing inequity, the sting of systemic racism, a climate in crisis.”

So it’s a “crisis,” which will be used to justify whatever Democrats want to do, and anyone who disagrees with Biden’s agenda will be accused of “political extremism, white supremacy [and] domestic terrorism.”

The Great Amnesia has begun. Everything that was said or done in the past four years will be shoved down the Memory Hole, lest anyone should be able to compare and contrast the actions of Biden’s administration with what actually happened during Trump’s presidency. Likewise, liberals will now demand respect for all the institutions we were told — just a few short months ago — were instruments of “systemic racism”:

It is with great pleasure that we can report that the national anthem is apparently no longer controversial.
As Lady Gaga belted out our nation’s song with some theatrics but relatively few deviations from the traditional anthem performance, a look at the assembled crowd showed something very interesting, no one appeared to be kneeling.
One of the main features of anthem performances over the last four years was kneeling. A protest that began with the NFL’s Colin Kaepernick as a statement against police violence, but then seemingly transformed into a general protest against the state of the country that was copied by entertainers, politicians, and others.
However, with a change in regime in Washington, it appears that “patriotism” is back in style. . . .
Vice President Kamala Harris, an Oakland native and supporter of Colin Kaepernick and the anthem protests he began, once said that the “backlash” against Kaepernick’s protests was the fault of “Russian bots.”
Harris also said that the anthem protests were an act of “free speech” and meant to draw attention to “racial injustice.”

Pretend you don’t notice these things. That’s the main challenge of the next four years, to ignore all these deliberate insults to our intelligence.

Also, whatever you do, don’t mention that our new Democrat overlords are shape-shifting alien reptiles. We’re not supposed to notice that.
