Some American conservatives still believe that if only the Republican Party can be rescued from the RINOs, it can once again become a party that embraces conservative principles and provide a welcoming home for Christians, libertarians, and fiscal conservatives alike.
We’re well-positioned to take back the House next year! If only Ted Cruz can borrow enough money from Goldman Sachs, he can sweep the primaries and revive the Republican Party in 2024! We need to twist the knob on our Magic Decoder Ring and make the Dominion voting machines stop taking orders from the DNC!
Yup. Uh-huh. Been there, done that.
We have a UniParty now in the USA. One wing of that party pretends to be conservative so that it can siphon off the anger and discontent from the deplorables and keep it from triggering open rebellion. Decades of open borders, abortion on demand, and an ever-expanding federal government have made that abundantly clear. Nevertheless, some conservatives haven’t yet woken up to this ineluctable fact. And — if four years of Donald Trump didn’t make the light bulbs come on over their heads — maybe they never will.
A few years ago a young man at my (now defunct) church asked me about my politics. He wasn’t woke or anything, just a standard-issue liberal. I told him I was a right-wing extremist. He shook his head at me in mild reproof and said, “No you aren’t, Ned!” I said: “You have no idea.”
A couple of months later in another political conversation he referred to me as a Republican. I interrupted him, and said vehemently: “I’m not a Republican. I HATE Republicans! The only thing worse than a Republican is a Democrat!”
That’s a handy comeback. I’ve used it a number of times when the occasion warrants. It tends to baffle standard-issue liberals; they don’t know how to respond.

I bring all this up because of all the conservative attention that is currently being lavished on Uncle Joe, our beloved ice-cream-eating Puppet-in-Chief.
Conservatives love to make fun of Joe Biden. They create innumerable memes, cartoons, jokes, and disparaging references to his obvious senility, his love for ice cream, his penchant for sniffing children’s hair, and the ludicrous bafflegab that issues from his mouth every time he stands in front of a microphone without a script — and sometimes even when he has one.
I must admit that I’m not above enjoying a joke at the expense of our puppet president, and every now and then I might even make one. But I don’t spend more than five minutes a day on such foolishness — there are more important things to pay attention to. Droolin’ Joe and his pretend second-in-command Kamala “Skippy” Harris have been set up as a foil to draw conservative attention and ridicule while the real business of the UniParty gets transacted behind the scrim.
A while back I posted this meme:
It doesn’t mean that Joe Biden is doing the breaking of America, but rather that the demented puppet is part of the deliberate breaking of America, propped up in position to do exactly what he’s doing: rending what little remains of the national fabric. All the crises and gaffes and ostensible policy mistakes are planned and fully intended. The fiasco in Afghanistan, the chaos at the border, the heavy-handed totalitarian measures on the coronavirus and vaccination, the massive unprecedented inflation — all of these are intended to further the fractionation of America into a myriad disparate components that will be easier to control once the Great Reset kicks off in earnest.
And while all that is going on, conservatives are preoccupying themselves with jokes at the expense of the Puppet. Who, I might add, was propped up on the national dais for exactly that purpose.
