Kneeling on Rice, No Not Susan Rice…

Welcome to our new series with single word titles. All joking aside, despite King Biden‘s and the Democratic party’s stance on abortion; which the Catholic church still very much frowns upon, by all accounts King Biden is a devote Catholic. Hell, after all, King Biden was just recently called out as being the most religiously observant commander in chief. Thus, being such a devote Catholic, we trust that King Biden is well acquainted with the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings regarding the Sacrament of Penance, sometimes called Reconciliation. For all the non-Catholics out there, we will provide a synopsis. The concept of penance can perhaps best be summarized as voluntary, self-inflicted punishment as an expression of repentance for having done wrong. Most often, this means that Catholics first check to make sure they have some pepper spray, enter a confessional with a priest, say what they are sorry for and then bolt as fast as possible before anything “bad” happens. Young, supple boys are better off doing this via Zoom.

With King Biden being a devote Catholic and all, we here at The Objective Observer feel that the concept of penance is applicable to King Biden‘s calls for “unity”. You see, it is Catholic doctrine that even after you have done bad, awful, horrible things, you can admit your wrong doing through the Sacrament of Penance and thus once again be reunited with Christ. Hooray! Now, we are not calling the Republican party Christ in this case because they are, well, Jesus, just take one look at those sorry bastards. Nor are we asking King Biden to risk rape by hanging out in a small, confined confessional with some creepy, lecherous Catholic priest. What we are asking is for King Biden and the Democrats to admit their past sins so that the country can actually begin the process of healing.

You see, to any objective observer, King Biden and the Democrats have committed numerous sins that unquestionably drove a wedge between Americans. For many, the entire reason the country is so divided is because of King Biden and the Democrats. Therefore, calls from King Biden and the Democrats for “unity” ring hollow and are not taken seriously. Calls for unity sound more like an order to “obey” versus any true token of peace. Thus, demonstrating a bit of penance would go a long way to helping the country heal.

And let’s be clear about these sins that have driven Americans apart. The first sin was not accepting former President Trump as a legitimately elected President of the United States. It was the Democrats that originally committed acts of, dare we say, sedition in trying to overturn the 2016 election through the whole Russia collusion hoax. And it was proved a hoax by the Mueller Report. Say what you will but after 3 years and millions of dollars in investigations the end result was bupkes. There is clear evidence to any objective observer that King Biden and the Democrats weaponized the FBI, lied to the FISA courts and committed many other acts intended to delegitimize and unseat President Trump. Penance needs to start here by King Biden and the Democrats admitting that what was done was wrong.

The next most egregious sin, all of the obstructionism. As we have pointed out in Filibuster First Strike, the Democrats did everything in their power to pout, stamp their feet and gum up the works. During the Trump administration, cloture was invoked an astounding 427 times during the 115th and 116th sessions of Congress, both with Republican majorities in the Senate. This is over 1/3rd of the total times that cloture has ever been invoked. The Democrats even had a name for this, the “Resist” movement. Remember that? This resistance went so far as to actually hurt and kill Americans. Nancy Pelosi stated that she held up COVID-19 relief efforts in order to hurt Donald Trump’s reelection chances. Without question, King Biden, the Democrats and specifically Nancy Pelosi need to demonstrate that they are sorry for destroying the operation of the United States government for four years and most definitely need to be penitent about intentionally inflicting harm on the American population out of pure spite.

Now, that’s just two items for which to show some legitimate penance. We could go on. Like all the leaking. Holy cow, it is like the Democrats were seeking to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that “the deep state” actually exists. That’s just mean, underhanded Nixonian dirty tricks. And the demonization. For the love of God, do not minimalize the Holocaust by calling Trump “Hitler” and his supporters “Nazis”. That’s just pure vitriol. And that first impeachment…

Again, we could go on all day about all of the sins of the last four years committed by King Biden and the Democrats. But nobody is asking for full atonement because, we may be mistaken, but to atone for that many sins would likely require flogging or kneeling on rice or who knows what. Catholics are just plain nuts when it comes to that shit. Christ, with so much to atone for and how bat shit crazy the Catholic church is, if King Biden and the Democrats were to be penitent about everything they would all likely wind up dead. Nobody wants that. Well, ok, almost nobody wants that. Undoubtedly there are a few coyote hat wearing morons out there that might wish ill.

Anyway, the point is, nobody is expecting full atonement for all past sins. But, just a little penance, some paltry admission that “yeah, these last four years we kind of took things a bit too far” would go a long, long way to healing this country. Despite a seeming lack of interest on the part of King Biden and the Democrats to publicly admit their guilt and ask for forgiveness, we here at The Objective Observer still hold out hope that King Biden and the Democrats will one day soon perform some small, trifle amount of public penance. We have to believe, because to not believe means losing all hope that America can ever be healed.
