Stupidocrisy: The government god complex

Florida Republican governor Ron DeSantis has declared an emergency over Hurricane Ian. Amidst evacuation and contingency plans, DeSantis had to deal with another distraction by Joe Biden and the federal government—COVID vaccinations. Biden is saying that “A vital part for preparing for hurricane season is to get vaccinated now. Everything is more complicated if you’re not vaccinated in a hurricane or a natural disaster hits.” This prompted the DeSantis team to issue a statement saying that Biden’s remarks were a “strange and puzzling assertion” and that Florida’s emergency management and first responders will help all impacted by Ian regardless of vaccination status.” It gets worse.

Hurricanes and natural disasters expose the weakness of governments to do anything to prevent them. They also open the window to just how strong a government is in exercising its authority to restore order or to demonstrate to the affected population the power of government. It would be no small leap to analyze the comments of people like Biden to understand at least in some modicum of logic how they view government. Here again, Biden is using a natural disaster that affects millions of people to undergird his misguided mandate that everyone needs to be COVID “vaccinated” as a major tool in natural disaster preparation. It’s very similar to using gun violence tragedies to promote gun bans.

Another example is the well-promoted propaganda among the global warming crowd that taxing citizens and corporations and redistributing that wealth to “green” companies and initiatives will control the weather. In the process, the leftist cronies of the green agenda get free money, and the weather does what it does. Speaking about the midterm elections on MSNBC’s Moring Joe, leftist Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said, “We just did something about climate change for the first time in decades. That’s why we got to win this and as that hurricane bears now on Florida, we got to win in the midterms.” Klobuchar is inferring that the Democratic Party’s climate policy will prevent hurricanes.

It takes a really special kind of stupidity to make statements like those of Biden and Klobuchar. Worse, it takes a tremendous lack of common sense to agree with these crazy notions. The COVID “vaccination” does not prevent the spread of COVID, nor does it make anyone immune against the disease. There is no known Democratic Party policy that prevents hurricanes. These kinds of statements, besides being stupid, expose liberal politicians’ belief system that government can stand in the place of God. Psalm 46:1 says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Verse 10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” It is the communist/fascist/socialist premise that government or a person replaces God. And there are people ignorant enough to believe it. Say it with me…stupidocrisy.
