The Biden inauguration, if anything else, was quaint. A few superstars were on hand to liven the event up as calls for the unity Trump supporters never received bristled throughout the winds of America. How sickenly sweet.

For those who were able to get through the entire ordeal without uncontrollably convulsing, you may have heard what you think you heard, but you may have missed what was really being said.

But that’s okay. We’re trained in this sort of thing so we’ll help you out.

President Biden’s inaugural address was an on-his-knees plea for unity from sea to shining sea. It’s a new day and he wants us to put an end to what he referred to as an “uncivil war.”

Sure. That would be nice. But when he boldly stated how “the forces that divide us are deep and they are real,” who was he referring to?

Which forces would those be, Mr. President? Could they be the ones still shadowed deeply within the Republican party who refuse to grab their ankles for you? It’s a surefire bet he wasn’t including any liberals in his accusation.

But it wasn’t only Biden who tucked words between lines. Poetically gifted Amanda Gorman, America’s 2017 Youth Poet Laureate, is a trained professional. She spoke volumes, sometimes discretely, other times not so much.

“We’ve braved the belly of the beast,” she eloquently recited. “We’ve seen a force that would shatter our nation, rather than share it, that would destroy our country if it meant delaying democracy, and this effort very nearly succeeded.”

Hmmm… Who’s she talking about?

“Even as we grieved, we grew, that even as we hurt, we hoped, that even as we tired, we tried. That will forever be tied together victorious not because we will never again know defeat but because we will never again sow division.”

The obvious question here is, who was doing the sowing? Then there was this line, “We did not feel prepared to be the heirs to such a terrifying hour.” And yet another obvious question. Who was terrified? Were you?

Let’s be clear, Trump’s time in office brought a lot of patriots out of their shells. Red and blue teams were chosen as keyboard warriors began fighting fierce verbal battles on social media sites, ending only with dead egos strewn across their pages.

America became a deeply divided country for the first time in its over two-century history, and we had to choose where we stood.

Joe Biden is a lone voice crying in the wilderness. The man is too incompetent to understand how his way of running this country, with no consideration of any compromise, is going to dig the divisive trenches even deeper. His my way or the highway concept does not coincide with the definition of democracy.

It ain’t gonna work.

America was built on enthusiasm, debate, arguments, new ideas, compassion in belief, and the constant need to continually move forward as a nation. A nation as a whole. Inclusive of every recognized political party. This is commonly known as working together for the betterment of all.

Every part of Biden’s inauguration, inclusive of his hallucinogenic pipedream calls for unity, was designed to drive one single point home. The Democrats are in control and they aren’t about to budge. Hop aboard or move on down the line.

One last point that may have been disregarded. The only reason the walking parade was able to smile and wave back at joyous spectators was because of the thousands of National Guard troops only allowing those people in.

Something to think about.
