Respect

 

Jon Reisman

One reader recently chastised me for my “disrespectful tone” towards President Brandon and Vice President Kamala, archly opining that my arguments against “President Biden and Vice-President Harris” lost credibility due to my lack of respect.

I was considering going Aretha Franklin and trying “just a little” R-E-S-P-E-C-T, but then Brandon announced the $250 $500 Billion $1 Trillion (?) inflation stoking, productivity killing, upper class/income redistribution student loan cancellation Democratic constituency payoff vote buying scheme. Reporting suggested he had gone forward against the advice of Treasury Secretary Yellen and First Lady/Education professor “Dr.” Jill Biden, heeding instead the counsel of word salad expert and affirmative action Veep Kamala instead. Then he apparently went off (or it may have been Susan Rice scripted) teleprompter and pronounced the 74 million plus Trump voters as “semi-fascists” and continued to maintain that he had nothing to do with his Attorney General’s unprecedented decision to have the FBI raid the evil orange guy’s Mar-a-Lago lair.

Adding this to his sorry record of purposely opening the Southern border (while steadfastly maintaining that it is “secure” and assigning it to cackling Kamala), Afghanistan (withdrawal/betrayal), inflation (transitory), climate (deliberately driving up the price of oil and gasoline to make “green” alternatives more competitive), “just a little” respect would be a very heavy lift.  

To top it off, Facebook META Master of the Universe Mark Zuckerberg admitted to Joe Rogan that Big Tech had interfered in (rigged) the 2020 election by acceding to the FBI “suggestion” that they censor the Hunter Biden laptop from hell story because “Russian disinformation”. The FBI was in possession of the laptop for over a year, knew perfectly well how that it was NOT Russian disinformation and how corrupt the Biden crime family was, but chose instead to make sure that the American people would not know and to directly interfere with the election and “Democracy” because Trump=Hitler and Trump supporters= (semi) Fascists.  The FBI is now evidently the Democratic Party’s SS. The left has the corporate media and Big Tech to carry their water and prescribe appropriate views, while the Department of Justice and the FBI prosecute thought crime and politically incorrect thinking. I am fearful for my liberty and possibly my life, but respect? I think not.

Joe Biden campaigned (from his basement) as a moderate and his inaugural address promised to unite the country. He has governed as a progressive and further divided the country. America is less prosperous, more racially divided, less safe, less feared by our enemies, less loved by our friends and allies and less respected by all because of the leadership and policy choices of Brandon and Kamala. The climate alarmism crap is about ending capitalism, freedom and prosperity, not about saving the planet. The climate alarmists are the real semi (eco)-fascists, and hypocrites to boot. Amazing how many of them have shorefront property, private jets and $75,000 plus electric vehicles.

So, no, I am afraid a disrespectful tone towards Brandon and Kamala and their supporters is the best I can manage and is actually more then they deserve.

Disdain and loathing would be more accurate and honest.
