Patriot Retort: Over the last few weeks I went back and watched the series Game of Thrones again. And this time around a line popped out at me. When her advisors remind her that she could easily defeat Queen Cercei because she has three dragons, Daenerys Targaryn tells them that she doesn’t want to be Queen of the Ashes. She doesn’t want to utterly burn Kings Landing to the ground just to rule. She wanted to “break the wheel” and free the people of Westeros.
This time when I heard the line, Joe Biden and the Democrats popped into my head. For all Biden’s talk about bringing the country together and “unity,” the fact is, he’s becoming President of the Ashes – willing to burn everything to the ground just to maintain Democrat power.
It didn’t take long for Joe to go from “Restore the Soul of the Nation” to “Burn this mother down,” did it?
And the thing is, Americans are beginning to realize they didn’t get President Unity after all. Instead, they got President of the Ashes.
