Has anybody noticed the supreme irony of President Biden’s threat to cancel Independence Day?
It’s almost a Freudian slip.
As long as we are a free people, no President—President Biden or any other President—“lets” Americans celebrate our country’s independence. July 4th, 1776 is when the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Second Continental Congress.
As far as I know, the Declaration of Independence has not been revoked (yet). However, here is President Biden’s threat:
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.
More than 51 percent of American adults have received at least one vaccine dose, according to CDC data, indicating that herd immunity and the pandemic’s end are near.
But Biden said at the White House that he’s not yet comfortable saying people can hold small outdoor gatherings on Independence Day.
Connoisseurs of irony won’t be able to find anything better than a President who might restrict us from us celebrating our freedom if we don’t kowtow to arbitrary diktats.
With our freedoms under attack, especially those guaranteed in the Bill of Rights, and statues of patriots being pulled down by mobs, it has never been more important than now that we remember the history and costs of our liberty. President Biden’s threat is outrageous, and, if we are free, we know that.
Americans should never be comfortable with being told whether they are allowed to hold small outdoor gatherings on July 4th. Even George III’s attempts to restrict our freedom were never this infuriating.
