The president-elect believes in the Chinese model of democracy
by Tucker Carlson
You’ve got to give some credit to whichever MSNBC contributor wrote Joe Biden’s speech Monday night. If you didn’t know better, you might think everything is better now. The Great Orange Emergency is finally over, it’s 1996 again, and we can exhale.
“In this battle for the soul of America,” Joe Biden told us, “democracy prevailed.”
“Politicians don’t take power,” the president-elect’s speechwriter wrote, “people grant power to them.”
Joe Biden wants you to know he didn’t run for president three times because he craves power or because he seeks to enrich ne’er-do-well relatives or because he has a vast, empty space inside that only the adulation of strangers can fill. No, he ran for president because he deeply cares about you. What matters, Joe Biden wants you to know, is that this is a democracy. Always has been, always will be. And by electing Biden and the small, secretive group of billionaires who choreograph his every move, this country has become even more democratic.
