As my friend Liberal Larry (my sidekick on our wildly popular podcast “Crossfire Hurricane” – see episodes HERE) says, “Optics are important.”
In today’s politically charged world, how something is perceived can be just as or even MORE important than its actual function.
What I mean by that is this…
How the masses see something—a new policy or an executive order, for instance—can be more important than the qualities of the actual thing itself.
If something is viewed as WOKE, it can get a lot of liberal mob support behind it…even if the policy itself really doesn’t move the ball towards the goal all that much.
However, if something is given a negative spin, even if it could be supremely important to the advancement of our society, people will not stop whining about it until it’s done away with.
Symbolism: Biden Proves He’s “America LAST”
And honestly, that may be my biggest gripe about this entire era of wokeness.
People will bend the knee to the whiners, and it drives me crazy.
We get it, the squeaky wheel gets the grease, but come on…
People are now whining about the smallest aspects of life just because they can or because they can get something out it.
How many “Karens” have you seen complaining to store managers in order to either get some hapless employee in trouble or get some free stuff out of the whole deal.
It’s a disgusting practice, and it’s something I won’t miss once it’s gone.
But I digress…
We’re talking about optics and how important a thing’s image can be compared to its meaning.
Well, I have to say, the OPTICS of Biden’s new White House logo is telling of the President he’s going to be – and I’m wondering if you’ll see what I see.
Here, take a look at Biden’s WH logo:
Do you see anything fishy?
If you look at the picture, you see the silhouette of a White House. Nothing too spectacular or crazy…just a nice, simple, and plain logo.
However, to me, the picture SCREAMS of how little Biden and his administration are going to care about America.
You probably won’t see it until I show you this.
This is the White House logo for former President Trump (man, that’s still painful to hear):
Do you notice the difference?
To some, you probably don’t’ see anything different between the two besides the color and the softer angles…
But to others, the difference is glaringly obvious, and once you’ve noticed it, it’ll probably make you a little angry.
Look at the flags at the top…
Do you see how Biden’s is an indistinct flag?
Now, on Trump’s logo, do you notice how you can absolutely tell that it’s an American flag at the top and not just some white blob?
There’s a lot of symbolism there…
One could look at Biden’s flag and see that America doesn’t matter.
They can see that maybe he wants to operate under a different flag…a globalist flag…
Or, maybe you can see it as a white flag of surrender since Biden will be giving our enemies in China and the Middle East everything they want.
How can you leave this out?
How can you pretend that this wasn’t on purpose, ESPECIALLY when you use Trump’s logo as a reference and consider THIS version was the 30th attempt to get it “right”?
If they wanted to give the world the impression that Biden doesn’t care about America as much as Trump did, then they hit the nail on the head.
But if they were trying for anything else, they failed miserably.
This is Biden’s America. Back to America LAST instead of America FIRST…
And we’re all going to pay the price.
