President Biden, in announcing his tyrannical crackdown on Americans who’ve not yet been vaccinated against the coronavirus, justified his action by saying his “patience is wearing thin.”

That’s not just pathetic.

That’s everything that’s wrong with the left, with the Democrats, with the socialists and Marxists who’ve taken over the Democratic Party — and most of the media, mind you.

A president has no authority to tell the people of America that his “patience is wearing thin” with them.

A government bureaucrat has no right to express that thought to the citizenry who pay his or her salary.

Who works for whom here, anyway?

“We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” Bidensaid in announcing his order for American businesses with more than 100 employees to require COVID-19 vaccines. 

“Your refusal has cost all of us,” Biden said, to the unvaccinated.

This is an example of a government pinhead run amok on power.

A parent has the authority to tell a child of “patience” that is “wearing thin.”

A teacher has the right to express the thought to a student that “patience” is “wearing thin.”

An officer of the law has a rightful ability to tell a suspect who’s growing unruly that “patience” is “wearing thin.”

These are all examples of authorities exercising authority — via verbiage that contains a hint of intimidation and carries a tone of threat — to those who are rightfully under their authority.

A parent possesses authority over a child. A teacher possesses authority over a student. A police officer, as a representative of law and order, possesses authority over those who break law and order.

But a politician over people?

No. Wrong. The people possess the authority over the government in America. The people hold the power — not the government. Not the president.

The fact that Biden even dares to express impatience with the American people shows how scornful he is of the proper interpretation of the Constitution, of the proper role of government-to-citizens, of the rightful relationship of tax-paid public servant and taxpaying employers to the public servants.

Biden didn’t just express a frustrated thought.

He revealed his entire nature — one of arrogance, elitism and condescension.

But we already knew that about Biden, didn’t we?

And just a few months into Biden’s tyrannical administration, our patience is wearing thin.
