Hunter Biden not only got a lucrative book deal (one of the favorite piggy banks that big media use to line the pockets of their chosen politicians), but he’s been enjoying fawning interviews from the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, who nod along as he poo-poos all that meaningless nonsense about his laptop, drug addiction, prostitutes and high-level corrupt business dealings with foreign governments.
Greg Gutfeld had some interesting commentary about this on his weekend show.
Toward the end of that clip, conservative comic Michael Loftus makes a great point that Hunter Biden is the poster child for the modern Democratic Party: rotten at the core, but everyone pretends it’s not. Like the way Hunter can get kicked out of the military for doing crack, then get put on the board of Amtrak. Loftus compared it to an intervention where, instead of telling the subject that he has a problem and needs help, they tell him, “It’s okay! You’re doin’ awesome!”
To be clear, as a Christian, I am a firm believer in forgiveness and redemption. But first come other steps, like humility, confession and asking for forgiveness. You shouldn’t expect forgiveness, redemption and vast Earthly rewards while you’re still covering up your sins and lying about them.
Kurt Schlichter has a new column about this at Townhall.com that’s brutal even by his standards, but his rage is understandable. He takes a look back at recent glaring examples of how our justice system has been completely corrupted into two tiers, one where well-connected liberals and favored groups (Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden, Antifa, BLM, etc.) can blatantly violate the laws and skate away to riches and acclaim; and another where the rest of us (Trump staffers and voters, people who merely show guns to protect themselves from Antifa thugs etc.) face relentless prosecution, even if it requires fabricating evidence to obtain bogus warrants (and when they do that, they face little or no consequences.)
Worse, President Biden is doubling down by calling for new, heavily-enforced background checks on law-abiding gun buyers while it's been reported that his own son lied about his arrest record on a gun background check with zero consequences.
Schlichter believes the media lionization of Hunter Biden is deliberate, to send a message to us about what they think they can get away with and we'd just better get used to it. I’m not sure about that, but I agree when he predicts that it won’t work out the way they think. The American people may be feeling demoralized right now, but as the 2022 elections near, I believe they’ll shake that off and turn their righteous anger at all this hypocrisy into action at the polls.
For four years, some pundits warned Trump Derangement Syndrome Democrats that if they didn’t take a hard look at themselves to understand why so many people voted for Trump and correct it, and if all they did was attack Trump and people who voted for him, then they really weren’t going to like what came after Trump. The first two things already came to pass. Will the third?
