Biden’s Campaign Kicks Off With Gaslighting

His alternate reality is grossly at odds with what we see playing out around us every day.

Joe Biden officially ended the suspense we had all been feeling as we anxiously wondered if he would demonstrate enough coherency to announce his plans for a second shot at the presidency. He confirmed his plans to “finish the job” in the upcoming 2024 presidential race.

Numerous industries might see this as an extension of an already unstable economy that puts the future of their success in question. But ice cream vendors across the country are breathing a sigh of relief at the idea of increased job security, as their product is known as the primary tool in negotiations when Biden is in charge.

Of course, the question that most of us are asking is this: What message could Joe Biden run on that would encourage the same 81 million voters (ahem) to pledge their support for him a second time?

The opening statements in Biden’s first campaign ad began with the word “freedom,” followed by images of protests for the “right” to kill your unborn child, and then moving on to accuse “MAGA extremists” of pushing an agenda to infringe on individual liberty and restrict equal opportunities for all.

Perhaps it’s because campaign ads are limited in length, but in suggesting that he plans to afford us the freedoms that are already secured and protected by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, Joe conveniently forgot to mention the recent release of the Twitter Files. Those news releases directly exposed the explicit efforts by far-left media outlets, leftist politicians, and activists to restrict or suspend accounts with the common theme of expressing opposing views to the party in charge.

In Matt Taibbi’s recent opening statement to Congress, he said: “Twitter, Facebook, Google and other companies developed a formal system for taking in moderation requests from every corner of government, from the FBI, DHS, HHS, DOD, the Global Engagement Center at State, even the CIA. For every government agency scanning Twitter, there were perhaps 20 quasi-private entities doing the same thing.”

During these hearings in which the true extent of censorship was unmasked, journalist Michael Shellenberger offered a warning to the general public regarding the precedent that had been set by these anti-free-speech measures: “I never thought that would happen in the USA. I’ve visited a lot of authoritarian countries, and I never thought this would happen here.”

Joe Biden’s campaign message continues:

“When I ran for president four years ago, I said we were in a battle for the soul of America. And we still are. The question we’re facing is whether in the years ahead, we have more freedom or less freedom; more rights or fewer. I know what I want the answer to be, and I think you do, too. This is not a time to be complacent.”

The issue at hand isn’t whether or not we know what our answers to these questions might be. Rather, given the demonstrated actions and values portrayed by those who have been in charge for the last two years, it is safe to conclude that the answer from the public would be at opposite ends of the spectrum from what the response from the Biden administration would be.

We are all too familiar with the constant attack on our Second Amendment rights, as opportunistic far-left politicians use the rates of increased crime — happening as a result of their own district attorneys, who reduce penalties for violent offenders — to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens to have access to firearms for their own defense.

In Biden’s America, the rights of parents have been diminished as legislatures in California and Colorado have passed bills to allow minors to hitch a ride to their states and receive anatomy-mutilating surgeries without parental knowledge or approval. Teachers unions lead the way for secrecy of educators from the parents of their students, to move forward with an agenda to replace academics with activism.

In a recent speech meant to support those who fill the jobs in our education system, Biden said the quiet part out loud when it comes to who he truly believes our children belong to: “There’s no such thing as someone else’s child. … Our nation’s children are all our children.”

Religious liberty is under constant fire, most notably demonstrated by the unconscionable attack by a self-identified transgender loyalist as she pursued her mission to target a Christian academy in Nashville. She took the lives of young Christian children, and the response from the Left was to sympathize with her contempt for the Christian belief system, pointing to her internalized feelings of discrimination as the true tragedy in this horrific event.

In Biden’s own words, he offered his utmost respect to the Transgender Day of Visibility with an official statement from the White House: “Transgender Americans shape our Nation’s Soul.”

With Biden in charge, these words are as truthful as any he has spoken.

As several presidential bids are announced, and the campaign ads start flooding our social media platforms, and our phones are inundated with texts and phone calls with messages meant to influence our decision on who the next leader of our country should be, there is no campaign ad that should be more influential than what the lived experiences of most of the country have been over the last two years.

There is no carefully crafted narrative or hand-selected imagery that can erase the downward spiral and loss of freedom and rights that we can see with our own eyes. We are too aware of the suffering we do not want to see continue for our friends and neighbors. Joe Biden has repeatedly demonstrated no interest in preserving freedom.
