Joe Biden’s string pullers in the White House are tenacious in trying to punish us for wanting to exercise our freedoms as Americans. Yesterday, their marionette (none other than the oft befuddled Joe Biden) threatened to deprive us bad boys, girls, and trans of July 4 celebrations this summer if we don’t knuckle under and be vaccinated.
What’s the antidote for this tyranny? Simple. Celebrate July 4 with friends, family, and neighbors. Tyrants only succeed when people submit. So don’t submit.
From the New York Post, April 22, 2021:
President Biden on Wednesday warned Americans they may have to cancel “small” outdoor gatherings on the Fourth of July if there’s a slowdown of COVID-19 vaccinations.
There’s plainly not enough federal law enforcement to police every backyard BBQ or pool party across America. Local cops are a different matter. If you live in a blue state or community, your Democrat leaders are doubtlessly drooling to again play petty tyrants. But, heck, if enough people in communities say, “Hell, no!” to threats that jackboots will try to shut down innocent cookouts and merrymaking, those backlashes will have real impact.
We’ve had over a year now of power-hungry politicians (mostly Democrats, but, alas, some establishment Republicans) manipulating our fears of a bug and/or bullying us into surrendering our God-given rights to act as free men and women. Surrendering is no longer an option.
It’s appropriate – or let me suggest, providential – that Joe’s handlers have chosen Independence Day to try to squash our liberties. Our revolution was about defying and casting off tyranny. Let’s use this July 4 to deep-six this homegrown attempt to destroy our rights. Do so peacefully and joyfully – but don’t back down. So, fire up the grills, splash in pools, and laugh with family and friends!
Spread the word to others: Tyrants only win if we let them. Don’t… let… .them… win!
