It doesn’t come as much surprise to anyone who’s followed Joe Biden’s political career, but
he really doesn’t like you.
Well, allow me to clarify. Good ol’ Grampa Joe, who passes himself off as everyone’s bosom pal and shoulders massaging, hairdo sniffing extraordinaire, doesn’t like you if you disagree with him. As far as we can tell, this includes 212 Republicans in the House of Representatives and 50 GOPers in the Senate (and every state and local level party official, too). Narrowing it down even further, Joe occasionally smiles when Republicans turn on their own, such as when ten House members and seven RINO senators voted to impeach and convict Donald Trump recently.
Most of the time Joe does a great job of disguising his real feelings. His staff prepares speeches to read from a teleprompter and Lord knows, they don’t grant him liberty from his short leash to speak off-the-cuff without strict controls on his behavior and subject matter. Otherwise, he might run afoul of the grand “nice guy” illusion and say something off-putting like he did this week, when Biden uttered that people who don’t believe in illogical mask mandates are victims of “Neanderthal thinking.”
I suppose Biden’s jab was a slight, even if the moron-in-chief didn’t intend it that way. It’s not a compliment to compare a contemporary human to a Neanderthal, after all. When he said it, most of us had to harken back to our high school or college anthropology class to even remember what a Neanderthal was… it had something to do with human evolution in its earliest stages, didn’t it?
Wikipedia describes “Neanderthals” as, “…an extinct species or subspecies of archaic humans who lived in Eurasia until about 40,000 years ago. They most likely went extinct due to great climatic change, disease, or a combination of these factors. They were fully replaced by early European modern humans…. “After much debate over their validity, researchers depicted Neanderthals as primitive, stupid, and brutish for much of the early-20th century. Although knowledge and perception of them has markedly changed since then in the scientific community, the image of the unevolved caveman archetype remains prevalent in popular culture.”
It does in Joe Biden’s cobweb-filled brain, too, apparently. It turns out more modern scholarship on Neanderthals has them somewhat evolved and forward thinking for their time. “Neanderthal technology is thought to have been quite sophisticated. It includes the Mousterian stone-tool industry and possibly the ability to create fire and build cave hearths, make the adhesive birch bark tar, craft at least simple clothes similar to blankets and ponchos, weave, go seafaring through the Mediterranean, make use of medicinal plants as well as treat severe injuries, store food, and use various cooking techniques such as roasting, boiling, and smoking.”
Hmpf. It seems the Neanderthals had more know-how tens of thousands of years ago than the entirety of the Democrat ruling class does today.
“Neanderthals” sound more advanced than your average elected Democrat and teacher’s union head who claims the only reason people want to open schools is because of racism. At least the early humans didn’t go around accusing each other of bigotry and hatred when they couldn’t get something accomplished. I can’t tell from the description, but it definitely appears Neanderthals had to work together and cooperate to survive, not call everyone names and simply accept wearing stupid masks as though it were a command ordained by God -- or Joe Biden.
The fact is, labelling conservatives and Republicans “Neanderthals” is actually a sort of wicked form of praise because no doubt the primitive but practical species wouldn’t have been uncivilized enough to elect a witless donkey like Joe Biden as president of the local tribe, much less a conglomeration of 330 million people.
Conservative legend William F. Buckley once said, “I would rather be governed by the first 2000 people in the Manhattan phone book than the entire faculty of Harvard.” I’m guessing Trump supporters would much prefer being governed by a Neanderthal man or woman with skills and knowledge on how to do things rather than a doddering old idiot and his handlers who probably need leftist lingo interpreters to read their morning propaganda papers.
Or perhaps we are already being ruled by Neanderthals? The Wikipedia description above indicated that the subspecies went extinct because of climate change or disease, didn’t it? Democrats have spent the past twenty-plus years warning of “global warming” and then “climate change” and the last year and change they’ve argued that we’ll eradicate ourselves completely if we don’t socially distance everywhere we go as well as don a face covering to battle COVID-19.
Just don’t mention the fact there are a good many scientists who disagree with the premise “climate change” is an existential threat that will wipe out modern humans if it isn’t dealt with in the next nine years (John Kerry said we wasted three years under Trump, so the timetable for doomsday has been moved up accordingly). Merely disagreeing with the “science” means you’re a deplorable -- and a Neanderthal!
Could it be Neanderthals vanished because they agreed among themselves -- or were ordered to do it by their rulers -- to cut back on their own fires to save themselves? Too much smoke? Deforesting the territory? Too many farting cows?
And why would Grampa Joe consider it “Neanderthal thinking” to allow citizens to go back to work and expose their faces once again? When statistics show the number of confirmed cases is falling rapidly due to distribution of the Trump vaccine and herd immunity making its way through the population, can’t folks decide for themselves? Over the course of a year, we’ve certainly gathered that only a tiny fraction of people (outside of a couple categories) who contract the China virus die from it. Doctors are also much more adept at treating the aggressive flu these days, and hospital capacity is capable of dealing with the straggler cases.
If anything, it’s “Neanderthal thinking” to keep Americans frightened of what might be based on some bureaucrat’s estimation of the danger. Dr. Anthony Fauci has been wrong more than he’s been right and it was never proven that masks do anything other than annoy people and restrict your breathing. What health effects will develop down the road from commanding people to wear the things all day long for months at a time?
Remember, Joe Biden is willing to order it because he doesn’t like you.
Donald Trump was often criticized for his mean tweets and reputation for being a difficult boss. And yes, Trump said plenty of things he probably shouldn’t have. But his barbs were usually directed at specific individuals. Biden judges by the group, quite a paradox for someone who claimed he would “restore the soul of the nation” if he became president.
It occurred to me that humans in their most advanced form think for themselves and question what leaders tell them -- because oftentimes the rulers are corrupt or biased and don’t make any sense. Power hungry tyrants like Joe Biden seek to dumb everyone down to a most basic level so the “sheep” won’t dare challenge him. This isn’t “Neanderthal thinking” -- it’s reality in 2021.
Joe Biden doesn’t care what you think about masks and opening the economy, because he doesn’t like you. And it doesn’t take a glance through an anthropology textbook to garner that conclusion.
