You shouldn’t agree 100 percent with any political commentator, because then you might as well be a puppet. Think for yourself. But, you can and should be able to publicly agree 100 percent with a specific take from any commentator. I can firmly say that I agree 100 percent with what Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Thursday evening following President Joe Biden’s address commemorating the one year anniversary of the Chinese coronavirus taking over many facets of our lives.
Here’s what Biden said that drew the ire of Carlson and many others, according to a transcript from the White House website:
If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the 4th, there’s a good chance you, your families, and friends will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout and a barbeque [sic] and celebrate Independence Day. That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together.
After this long hard year, that will make this Independence Day something truly special, where we not only mark our independence as a nation, but we begin to mark our independence from this virus.
But to get there, we can’t let our guard down.
This fight is far from order — from over. As I told the woman in Pennsylvania, “I will tell you the truth.”
A July 4th with your loved ones is the goal. But a goal — a lot can happen; conditions can change.
Carlson responded to Biden’s speech immediately after it was over and lambasted Biden for thinking he can tell us exactly how to live our lives and who to live it with.
If you take your shot, wear your mask, and listen to Dr. Fauci, it is possible — not assured, but possible — that you might be able to get together in small groups with the ones you love for the Fourth of July. We might have to rescind that right, but it's possible if you're obedient you'll get it.
Who are you talking to? This is a free people, this is a free country. How dare you tell us who we can spend the Fourth of July with?
Agreed! Thanks, Mr. President. But, I don’t need your permission. Never have, never will.
Also, is it just me or did Biden try to downplay Independence Day by seemingly placing as much importance on being able to “mark our independence from this virus” as celebrating our nation’s actual independence, almost as if he were repurposing the holiday? Seems fishy to me, especially since all politicians are not to be trusted.
