Biden’s Apology Tours Will Make Us Weak As A Nation

“So the record is clear: Rather than keeping us safer, the prison at Guantanamo has weakened American national security. It is a rallying cry for our enemies.”-Obama

“There is no senior partner and junior partner in our relations; there is simply engagement based on mutual respect and common interests and shared values. So I’m here to launch a new chapter of engagement that will be sustained throughout my administration.”-Obama

I thought that after eight years of the insanity of an Obama/Biden foreign policy debacle, we had turned a corner and re-assumed our rightful role as the leaders of the free world. Trump and his “America First” policy sent a very clear message to the rest of the world that we weren’t to be messed with and by all accounts, we weren’t. Four years where other shithole nations didn’t spend their time looking for ways to mess with us.

It was nice while it lasted. After four pretty decent years, we are back to being an apologist nation. The New York Times said that, “President Biden told leaders at the G-7 summit on Friday, the same day the U.S. reentered the Paris Agreement, that the days of “America First” diplomacy championed by former President Trump were over. Done in record time, the New York Post reported “that the “America First” era was over, and that, “Biden has swiftly dismantled Trump’s foreign policy agenda, which saw the U.S. withdraw from the WHO, the Paris Agreement and the Iran nuclear deal, which Trump believed were against the nation’s interests.” Biden said, “America is back, the trans-Atlantic alliance is back … we are not looking backward.” He stated, “We have to prove that our model isn’t a relic of history. We must demonstrate that democracies can still deliver for our people in this changed world. That is our galvanizing mission. Democracy doesn’t happen by accident. We have to defend it. Strengthen it. Renew it.”

Defend, strengthen and renew what? Apologizing for being a powerful nation? I don’t think so. Biden and the left just don’t get it that as the most powerful nation on the planet, we need to act like it. Kissing China’s ass and letting Iran walk all over us does nothing to help our situation. Many of the very same nations that pretend to like us when people like Biden are President are the ones who need to be shown a strong physical presence. They need to be shown that we won’t kowtow to countries like China and North Korea.

Let’s look at this realistically. When these countries need money, who do they come to? The United States. If they need military intervention, either through boots on the ground, or again money, who gets stuck with the bill? You got it. We do.

Well, I know that I am tired of the US bowing down to anyone. It was sickening to watch it for the eight years of Obama/Biden and even though it has only been a few weeks into his administration, Biden is showing us that he is already following the same course. Other nations do not see this as a partner building exercise. They see it is as a sign of weakness. Weakness as a country. When they see the US act like this, they feel as though they can try and take advantage of our good will.

It’s kind of like the teacher who never shows and type discipline and as a result they do what they want. That teacher will have no control over the class. They will keep pushing the line of what’s acceptable and what isn’t until something really bad happens. What happens next? They try to tell us how we should act, and the left will say that we need to change our behavior.

Well screw that. It’s bad enough that we let BLM and ANTIFA run amok with no thought of any kind of consequences. And this is idiots in our own country. We need to keep moving in the same direction that we were during the Trump administration. We need to stop handing out money to these worthless nations and expect nothing in return.

And lastly, we most certainly have to prevent our borders from becoming an open wound, the way it was during Obama/Biden.

So, this is where we are headed as a nation? Unfortunately for the next four years, yes.

Here is another example: Just think of Biden as a parent and all of the countries who have no respect for us as his spoiled children. He will let them keep getting away with shitty behavior because he believes that is the best way to gain their respect. But what do the children do? They keep acting worse and worse.

When Biden decides to crack down, his kids laugh at him because they know he is full of shit.

Just like I heard for four years, don’t blame me, I didn’t vote for this dope.

The Death Of The Apology

“Would ‘sorry’ have made any difference? Does it ever? It’s just a word. One word against a thousand actions.”
― Sarah Ockler

“Sorry, always sorry. What in the world can you buy with an apology?”
― Marie Lu

“Never apologize, mister, it’s a sign of weakness.”
― John Wayne

I just finished reading an article on National Review entitled, The Humiliating Art of The Woke Apology. In the article, it alludes to the fact that a person who offended some group, institution or person got caught saying something let’s say 25 years ago would have been nothing. The author, Rich Lowry, shows us how the woke apology has evolved over time, becoming what it is now, which is nothing more than an embarrassing slew of words thrown together to appease someone, somewhere who thought who thought that they were being offended.

An excellent example from the article follows:

“A routine feature of over-the-top apologies is the vast gap between the alleged offense and the depths of the confessions of wrongdoing. The tone and content of many contemporary apologies might be appropriate if, say, Aaron Burr were expressing regret for shooting Alexander Hamilton, or if Andrew Jackson were coming to terms with the enormity of the Trail of Tears.”

In reading many of the offenses first, and then the response from the person who said it, I am often struck by the totality of the apology. You would think that the person was apologizing for a life consumed by actual hate crimes instead of refusing to use the proper pronoun when speaking about the freaks in the transgender world.

I believe that this type of thinking needs to stop. We supposedly live in a country where our freedoms are God given rights. More recently. The SJW’s and PC police have made it their business to shut anyone up who doesn’t agree with them. In the movie The Judge, the characters played by Robert Downey jr. and Robert Duvall get into an argument while driving back from the courthouse. The Judge insists that another son stop the car so he can get out.  Before Downey jr. exits the vehicle, he makes a statement to the effect that he wishes the Judge had died and not his mother. A short scuffle ensues and Downey jr. says to the two brothers in the front seats of the car, “What line were you two in when they were giving out testicles?” The third brother, who is slightly mentally challenged, then looks at the driver and very sincerely asks him, “What line were we in when they were giving out testicles?”

My point here is that both men and women need to grow a set. Everyone is so afraid of how these mindless cretins will respond that they immediately kowtow to the crazies and issue the most absurd apologies. Now I fully understand that these people often fear for their jobs, but by the point that they apologize, the job they had is already history. Then they are blacklisted. For people in many fields, it is then very difficult to find a new job.

I am at a point in my life where I am happily retired and refuse to play this stupid game of words. If I don’t agree with something, that is my God given right to do so. As long as I don’t hurt anyone, I can say and think what I want. The left needs to get it through their heads that just because I disagree with you does not make me white supremacist etc. It simply means I disagree with you.

Needless to say, you will never, ever hear or read any type of apology from me, unless, of course, it is mixed with a nice dose of sarcasm. For example, over the course of my years working in the Ossining UFSD, I had to deal with transgender kids. Most of them had underlying mental health issues and they all believed that everyone had to play along, or they would tell their guidance counselor, a building administrator or central administrator. Unfortunately, to get where I am today, I also had to play the game. Now I don’t have to play along. I can call it what it is.

So this is where we are. The death of the true apology. Anyone can utter some words or put out a statement, but what do those words mean? They truly mean nothing.

And this is how I will continue to operate. So please, spare me the histrionics of saying that I have to apologize, or that I am something evil if I don’t agree with you. I have been told that I should apologize for some of my posts. My reply to that is twofold: Screw off, and if you are truly waiting for an apology, you will be waiting a very, very long time.
