It didn’t take long. In fact, it took just over one week before the calls for the Biden/Harris team to “payback” those that elected them. It came in the form of a letter from Black Lives Matter. And they want to be paid back handedly.
In a letter to Biden and Harris, BLM officials have said that “Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome. In short, Black people won this election.”
Well, that doesn’t sound too congratulatory, does it?
What’s going to be interesting, IF the Trump campaign’s law suits don’t change the apparent outcome of the election is to see what Biden and Harris are willing to give up. And I find it personally interesting that Joe Biden received 2% less of the black vote in 2020 than Hillary Clinton did in 2016, and yet, blacks are screaming that THEY got Joe Biden elected.
It makes me wonder what the suburban women in America are going to want. Or what the unions are going to want. Or what the Mexican Hispanics are going to want. Or what the rank and file Democrats are going to want.
The easiest was to describe our situation is that Joe Biden has become a “Post Turtle”. What’s that? You don’t know what a Post Turtle is? Let me explain…A “Post Turtle” is a turtle on a fence post. You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with.
I guess my point here is, since when did it happen that we “expect” a payback of some sort if we vote for a certain candidate? I mean, I missed the memo on that one. I’ve always voted for the person that I felt had the better platform, who’s views aligned with mine better, and I thought would do a better job leading the country. I never once thought of writing the president a letter demanding that it’s time he/she/it step forward and give me something in return for my vote.
But then again, I’m not used to asking the government for a handout either. Apparently the lady that wrote that letter, Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of the BLM movement, has received more than her fair share of government handouts, and she’s not afraid to ask for more.
And if this is the way the government is going to work going forward, we’re in for a very bumpy ride. Because this is just the beginning of the honest to goodness redistribution of wealth, and you know that’s what it’s about, right? It’s about taking money from the people that have the money…people like Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos, and Jack Dorsey, and Sundar Pichai, who have spent a great deal of time and political capital getting Biden elected, IF that’s the end result. And they are some of the wealthiest people in this country. And they are the ones, according to Joe Biden that are going to have to step up and pay through the nose. It’s not enough that those guys living in California’s Silicon Valley are paying some 63% of their income already in taxes by the time you get state, local, and federal taxes figured in.
So, prepare yourself for the “handout movement” of the 2020 decade. Set yourself up now so that you get rewarded for being needy. Apparently the days of putting your nose to the grindstone, or coming up with the next greatest idea and selling it to the world, as America has done for 244 years has had it’s run. Now it’s time for you to either be needy and get rewarded for it, or step up to the plate and share whatever wealth you’ve accumulated. That is, after all, where we are heading, right? I mean, that IS what Black Lives Matter is all about. It’s about them getting what they feel is their fair share from the rest of us because um…let’s see…they feel bad that their great, great, great, great, great grandparents possibly may have been, could have been slaves? Am I getting that right? So, we all must pay. Even though I have never, not even once in my life treated anyone of color any differently than I have a caucasian person. But it’s incumbent on ME and YOU if you aren’t of color, to step up and pay for the sins of the past.
Nope…doesn’t fly in my world. And it won’t in Biden’s either when he finally wakes up and comes out of his basement.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
