American Elephants

Is this how it all begins? by The Elephant's Child

Biden began his presidency with a stark warning in his inauguration speech about the “rise in political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism, that we must confront and we will defeat.” On June 1, Biden described the threat from “white supremacy” as the “most lethal threat to the homeland today.”

“White Supremacy” is just the Democrats attempt to agitate Blacks and to retain their votes. President Trump did a lot for the Black community when he created “opportunity zones.” Democrats went to great lengths to claim that the effort didn’t work, was a failure, a flop, useless, bad and a lot of worse adjectives. The Big Tech “fact checkers” piled on, of course. Can’t have any successes from the Trump Administration, especially in doing something positive for the black community. It’s really a shame that they have to demonize something successful just to make sure that Trump gets no credit. Opportunity Zones did work.

Here’s Dr. Ben Carson, Trump’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development explaining just what an opportunity zone was and what they hoped to accomplish with them. Democrats and Big-Tech “Fact Checkers”, of course immediately jumped in to denigrate, demonize, disparage and deny, and perhaps convinced a lot of people that it was a failed effort, but the folks who lived there know better.

There are lot of silly claims about “white supremacy” being “rampant”. That simply notes that in the 2010 Census, the statistics showed that 79.4% of the population of the United States was white, and 13% were black only (not counting mixed races). The 2020 Census has not yet released their newer statistics. Does just having more white people mean “white supremacy?” Seems to me it’s just numbers, not any kind of a designation of who is in charge, or who rules, or anything else. A larger percentage of the American population is white. Has nothing whatsoever to do with so-called “supremacy.”

President Biden has gone off to Europe for the big G-7 conference. The funniest thing is that, with his declining memory, Joe Biden had to take notes with him to remind him of all the very bad things he wants to blame Trump for— to his G7 partners. Some reporters, or their photographers, got shots of Biden’s note card reminders of all the very bad things he wanted to say about Donald Trump and you can actually read some of the notes in the photographs. You could probably find them if you search. It really is funny, if rather pathetic.

Wouldn’t it be nice if a new president wanted to say that, my predecessor did this and it really worked well, so I’m going to repeat it to try to accomplish a little more, or something like that. Well, not going to happen, but spending a whole new administration just trying to demonize your predecessor doesn’t seem like a very worthwhile pursuit.
