Distraction is a primary tool of politics, used most often by politicians who are in trouble with their voters for some reason. Boris Johnson is in trouble for partying like a rock star during the Covid lockdowns, so he never shuts up about Ukraine. This has the added benefit of providing an excuse for inflation, shortage and energy costs. If he can get everyone to pretend that Ukraine is more important than feeding their kids or paying their light bill, maybe they forget about the partying too.
Joe Biden is trying the same act with guns. Unlike Boris Johnson, Biden has many more problems to hide via distraction. Eighteen months into his tenure and just about everything has gone wrong. Biden is about as popular as rectal cancer. The reason is incompetnace. This is compounded by the fact that Biden is a vegetable, barely able to function most of the time. Even when lucid, he reminds people why no serious person ever thought Biden was anything but a clown.
His handlers are hoping they can have him stand over the corpses of dead children, pointing the finger at white people and his troubles will go away. This is what passes for clever politics in a world disconnected from reality. Everyone is onto this stunt and no one is fooled by it. Instead, people rush off to the gun shop and pick up something, just in case this time things are different. Gun grabbers have sold more guns and gun company stocks than John Browning.
The gun issue is particularly bad for Biden because it reminds people of his reputation for being an outlandish liar. Most people know the facts on guns. When the gun grabbers start in on their nonsense about “military-style rifles”, “weapons of war” and “gun show loopholes”, everyone knows they are lying. For Biden, it brings to mind all of his other whoppers. Instead of distracting from the administration’s problems, the gun issue refocuses the mind on the source of the problems.
It will be interesting to see what the summer brings. The administration seems to be poleaxed by the economic troubles. They try to avoid mentioning it. Ukraine was supposed to be the main topic, but that is now joining gas prices, food shortages and inflation on the list of forbidden topics. They will need something to distract people, so we will just have to wait and see. Who knows? Maybe they produce something inventive to keep people busy over the summer.
