While it was awful from start to finish, the hard part is deciding which was the absolute worst moment.
Was it the president’s latest attack on state voting law reforms, which he bizarrely called “the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War”?
Was it the administration’s outrageous invitation for the pampered popinjays at the United Nations to sit in judgment of America’s racial strife?
Or perhaps it was Biden’s decision to push a one-party spending spree of trillions of dollars even as inflation levels reached their highest mark in 13 years?
Under almost any president, each of those events would qualify as a low point. But Biden is proving to be spectacularly awful at his job, and he did something else that captures the award for the week’s Worst of the Worst.
Friday, the president accused Facebook of “killing people” and demanded it silence those opposed to or questioning the coronavirus vaccines.
Coming from the president, this is a breathtaking accusation and demand.
It far exceeds anything Donald Trump ever said or did. Trump wrongly called some media “the enemy of the people,” but never accused them of actually “killing people.”
But Biden has — recklessly — and no doubt assumes the lapdog news media will echo his charge.
Notably, Facebook’s defense is that it is silencing as many people as it can find who question or criticize the vaccines. That’s hardly a defense of free speech, but rather shows Big Tech fundamentally agrees with Biden’s goal. They just differ on the success rate.
The alarming approach first emerged with a Wednesday report in Politico about White House plans to fight what it sees as “misinformation” on COVID vaccinations.
