Trekkies will get the reference. Rick Moran at PJ Media, Joe Biden: The 'Contra Trump' Airbrushes Operation Warp Speed Away
A good, old fashioned communist purge is underway in Washington as the erasure of Donald Trump begins.
Anyone and everyone who had anything to do with Trump is being canceled, fired, and shamed. Trump employees are unable to get another job. Saying you worked for Trump is like the kiss of death and leads to ostracization and termination.
I suppose it could be worse. There could be real communists in charge and most of these poor souls would find themselves dead of a heart attack or a victim of a car crash. Nothing quite so gauche as a public execution. “These things must be done delicately,” to quote the Wicked Witch of the West. But perhaps when all is said and done, it doesn’t matter how it’s done. Your life is ruined anyway.
The left is setting a dangerous precedent by canceling anyone who had anything to do with Trump. And the scrubbing of Trump from government, removing all references to him, or anything that reminds the public of Trump is equally fraught.
The latest example is the incoming Biden administration changing the name of the successful effort to develop a vaccine. Operation Warp Speed makes people think of Trump, so it’s got to go. NPR:The “Operation Warp Speed” name will be retired, incoming White House press secretary Jen Psaki tweeted on Friday. She said there was an “urgent need to address the failures of the Trump team approach to vaccine distribution.” Psaki did not say what the new name will be.
Psaki added that many of the same civil servants will be involved in the response, but the structure will be changed.
Well, you can't fire a 'civil' servant, after all.
The “structure” refers to changing nameplates on office doors. There is no reason to change the name of the most successful collaboration between science and government since the Apollo program. Operation Warp Speed delivered a scientific miracle in creating several vaccines against the coronavirus in a matter of months, not years as with every other vaccine.
You have to wonder if a Democrat had been in office if they could have achieved the same results. Democrats certainly wouldn’t have worked so closely with corporations and would have insisted on a competitive bidding process that would have taken months. Then there would have been delays making sure all the companies involved were woke and had proper sexual harassment procedures in place. Their workforce would have had to be carefully balanced in race, gender, and sexual orientation, and their bathrooms would have had to be open to anyone.
But Biden doesn’t just want to scrub Trump from history. He needs to be the “Contra Trump.” Anything Trump accomplished, he must do the opposite. Every Trump policy must not only be reversed but buried as well.
HOW DARE Donald Trump TURN OUT TO BE ONE OF THE BEST PRESIDENTS THE United States OF AMERICA HAS EVER HAD IN SPITE OF HIS PERSONAL FLAWS WHICH HE NEVER TRIED TO HIDE WITH THE RESULT THAT HIS HONESTY CAUSED THE LEFT LIBERALS TO HATE HIM. Frankly, it wasn't a high bar.
