The Latest Biden Ad Is the BIG Lie
By honoring our flag only at election time, the Democrats prove they'll say anything to regain power.
The latest propaganda from the Biden campaign and its Hollywood hitmen is powerful stuff. Really powerful, especially for those Americans — the vast majority of us — who don’t follow politics closely and don’t have any idea what’s become of their parents’ and grandparents’ Democrat Party.
The ad is called “Go From There,” and from a patriotic perspective, it’s got everything: a simple piano playing the Star-Spangled Banner, American flags flapping in the breeze, golden sunsets, scenic mountains, vast oceans, endless horizons, rolling trains, happy workers, open schools, youth football, beautiful children, scenes of racial harmony, mask-free hugs and handshakes from a smiling Joe Biden, and the stirring voice of Sam Elliott telling us there are “no Democratic rivers, no Republican mountains, just this great land, and all that’s possible on it with a fresh start. Cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect.”
“Joe Biden,” Elliott tells us, “doesn’t need everyone in this country to always agree, just to agree that we all love this country and go from there.”
What a splendid, stirring turn of phrase.
Even the place of the ad’s premiere was perfectly scripted: Game 1 of this year’s World Series, which features two teams hailing from sea to shining sea. The Fall Classic, the ultimate expression of our national pastime. It’s sort of a 2020 version of General Motors’s “baseball, hotdogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet,” but with even more Americana and without the crass commercial appeal.
And without any whiff of truth.
Somewhere in hell, Joseph Goebbels is smiling broadly. So is Leni Riefenstahl. For this, in a 60-second advertisement, is the embodiment of their life’s work: It’s the BIG Lie of the Democrat Party. It’s their one-minute Triumph of the Will.
Where are the riots, Scranton Joe? You remember: the riots that you and your party tacitly and cynically endorsed all summer long as a way to sow discord and unrest and to cause a voting majority of the American people to yearn for a change. The riots that wrecked our great cities, the ones you denounced only after your pollsters began telling you that mayhem was bad for your brand.
Where’s the looting? The arson? The flag burnings? The anti-cop rallies? The Black Lives Matter bullying? The antifa thuggery? The toppled statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Christopher Columbus, Ulysses S. Grant, and Robert E. Lee?
Where’s the kneeling for the national anthem instead of the reverence for it?
Just hours after its release, it’s already been seen by more than 350,000 of our fellow Americans. Heck, this American has watched it a dozen times just to marvel at its masterful persuasion, however deceitfully done.
Again, it’s powerful stuff. Especially for those who don’t remember recent history and don’t understand that Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats will say anything to regain the reins of power.
Consider this a vaccination, then — one that you can pass along to those you think might be at risk. Tell a friend. Tell 10 friends. And make sure everyone has a plan to vote.
On November 3, it’s Donald Trump or The Mob.
