It is genuinely difficult to watch videos of Joe Biden these days. There’s the confusion—getting lost on a stage, shaking hands that aren’t there. There is the careful, deliberate, stiff-legged walk, which resembles that of a drunk groomsman desperately trying to pull it off. There is the memory lapses; the Clint Eastwood squint at the teleprompter. I cringe at many of the jokes about his performance because he simply strikes me—and any honest observer—as an elderly man who lacks the capacity to lead the world’s leading (for the moment) superpower.
But Biden’s behavior over the last year—and especially in the runup to the midterms—reminded me once again that he is not simply an aging, pitiful man being exploited by the radical progressives who are clearly setting the agenda for his administration. He’s more like one of the Capitol leaders in The Hunger Games—degenerate, bloodthirsty, and intent on the transformation of his country. And Biden, unlike AOC and other millennial squad members, is old enough to know better. He went, overnight, from a “reluctantly” pro-choice-Catholic squish to a president campaigning on abortion until birth weekly, sometimes daily.
If you think I’m being too harsh, consider the fact that Biden’s White House has been a revolving door for transgender activists, drag queens, and their friends. I’m not just talking about the “first openly transgender admiral,” Richard “Rachel” Levine, or his crossdressing non-binary nuclear official currently facing charges for stealing a woman’s luggage. Biden has made a point of ensuring that these activists are front and centre, sitting down with notorious transgender social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney, who regularly posts videos of himself cosplaying as a woman and waggling for the camera. In that interview, Biden told Mulvaney that opposing sex changes and puberty blockers for kids is “wrong.”
