Recently conservative columnist Byron York explained how “transforming America” has become the Democrats’ favorite mantra. He credited Bernie Sanders with starting that mantra which has been parroted by progressives ever since.
Bernie was only a straw man drawing big crowds but unable to translate it into victory. Joe Biden, playing the “moderate,” couldn’t pop up a crowd the size of a kazoo concert but somehow pulled off a win opening the gates to “transforming America.”
Simultaneously there’s the CRT controversy. With differing definitions of Critical Race Theory, one thing remains consistent. Advocates insist all of America’s institutions are illegitimate because of racism, therefore all institutions need to be reimagined.
With that reimagining and transforming, there’s been significant economic woes, soaring prices and supply chain shortages. Biden, struggling to reassure us, repeated his often used phrase “America is back.” That’s a bromide reminiscent of Herbert Hoover’s “prosperity is just around the corner.”
For Joe and the wife, just around the corner was out on Nantucket. After the speech, the Bidens jetted up to a billionaire buddy’s $30 million compound for their holiday celebrations and slumber.
Saturday, Joe was seen casually shopping, maskless, in a store requiring masks. Does anyone believe they were worried about viruses, soaring prices or shortages? Does anyone remember the attack on Trump from the jokers posing as journalists at NPR over not wearing a mask?
Mid-term elections can put the brakes on fears of using the wrong pronoun, investigations of parents who speak out at school board meetings, the IRS probing average folks’ bank accounts and the other chilling things that litter the grim path to Marxism.
Reimagine and transform are only the latest guise of the creeping virus of progressivism. Don’t be fooled by any of it.
