“We hold these truths to be self-evident that…..”
No, stop right there! No, you don’t believe that, Joe.
As part of his COVID Relief for businesses, Joe Biden announced funding opportunities would first go to minorities and those who have traditionally been lagging. You know, in this systemically racist system of ours. So they would have exclusive priority in getting funds based on their racial or identity qualifiers. After 21 days, other people would be eligible for funds. So “first come, first serve” begins after 3 weeks of preferences.
(USA Today) “The law set aside $9.5 billion for the smallest bars and restaurants. Small businesses owned by women, veterans and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals will be given priority for review and funding during the first 21 days of the program. Afterward, applications will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis.”
What is this stuff? How would that stand up to Constitutional scrutiny? Joe should know this as a former chair of the Judicial Committee in the Senate. But either he doesn’t really care, doesn’t understand the Constitution. I don’t know which.
Now I realize when Joe obsessively talks about the 4th of July he wants to redefine as our independence from the pandemic, why he is set on that notion. But he really is trying to redefine July 4th, if you hadn’t noticed.
He is burying the original meaning of the 4th.. Back even then, we were wrong for what we were doing and our motives were clearly wrong. That is according to the new dogma of the Left anyway. There was nothing good about it. So he gets to create a good intention for the 4th of July. Just transpose all that celebration onto that new revision.
Naturally, when we repeat that line, “holding these truths self-evident,” Biden doesn’t actually believe that all men(in a general sense) are created equal. He believes some are more deserving than others; that racial preferences are necessary, and that equality was never really a thing. Joe considers discrimination a moral duty. Further, he thinks we should discriminate in enforcement of law too. In fact, it is the (new) purpose of law.
