Having listened to the God Emperor’s first State of the Union address, I can say that we have once again witnessed the work of a master rhetorician. What was more impressive to me than his list of accomplishments was the way that the God Emperor used the left’s own language and tactics against them. In addition, the Democrats managed to make themselves look like the nasty and resentful people that I have known them to be through their conduct during the address.
The God Emperor began his speech by with an appeal for unity. He asked the all those present to set aside their differences and find common ground so that they can serve the American people together. He also mentioned that “the state of our Union is strong because our people are strong.” This is a response to the vicious race-baiting and identity politics that characterized the Obama administration and the presidential election. The prosperity that Americans are experiencing are indeed the result of them being freed from regulation and high taxes under the God Emperor’s administration. The stock market has hit record highs and 2.4 million new jobs have been created. Moreover, we have not yet seen the full effects of the tax cuts that congress passed. With Americans having more take-home pay, we are likely to see even better economic results in the future.
In the midst of all this good news, the Democrats continued to snarl and refused to applaud economic results that they can only dream of creating on their own. They were unhappy with the fact that Americans have more jobs and are now getting to keep more of their hard-earned money. While their attitude is contemptible, it does not come as a surprise given that they along with their cronies in the mainstream media believed that the God Emperor would be a disaster for the country. Not only were their predictions of the stock market crashing and an impending tyranny from the new administration incorrect, the exact opposite has happened. To drive the point on economic growth home, the God Emperor mentioned a small business called Staub Manufacturing, which benefited from the tax cuts that were passed. He also congratulated one of its employees, Corey Adams, for investing his additional take home pay in a house and his two daughters’ education. This method of promoting the new tax cuts was outstanding because he used the same emotional appeal that leftists use in promoting their policies. The God Emperor put a human face on the policies that he promoted in a way that would resonate with the American people. What was even worse for the Democrats is that Corey Adams is a black man. We were consistently told that the God Emperor is a white supremacist and that his campaign was predicated on racial hatred. Well, here he is congratulating a black man who is benefiting from his policies.
The most memorable moment of the address for me was when the God Emperor mentioned that black unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded. The cameras cut to the members of the Congressional Black Caucus, none of whom applauded. They continued to scowl and maintain long faces as the rest of the chamber applauded. What does this tell you about black democrats in congress and their priorities? They were upset at their fellow blacks having more jobs under this administration. Perhaps this will make black Americans question the benevolence of Democrats as well as their own loyalty to the Democrat Party.
Another hard-hitting moment was when the God Emperor said that as Americans, “we all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag.” This was a direct response to the NFL and the players that protested the national anthem. The story of Preston Redding only served to make the message even stronger, with more emotional appeal in the form of a 12-year-old patriot. The God Emperor implied that the players who were protesting were not doing their civic duty and disrespected our veterans, a sentiment held by the vast majority of the American people. How can any decent American object to what the God Emperor said?
The God Emperor then moved on to immigration, speaking about the violence and bloodshed that has resulted from our open borders and our refusal to enforce immigration laws. We were witness to the heartbroken faces of two fathers and two mothers: Evelyn Rodriguez, Freddy Cuevas, Elizabeth Alvarado, and Robert Mickens. Their children were murdered by members of the MS-13 gang that entered our country illegally. The emotional appeal in the address was relentless, the perfect combination of sensible policy and real people were hurt by the lack of common sense in our government. Enforcing our immigration laws and deporting those who entered the country illegally will certainly prevent the needless deaths of more innocent Americans.
The greatest rhetorical bomb that the God Emperor was when he said: “My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too.” He stole the media’s own word for defending DACA in one fell swoop. The God Emperor asserted the interests of American citizens ahead of aliens who entered the United States illegally. This is also a very effective criticism of Democrats who shut down the government over the issue of DACA. He reminded the American people that the Democrats are not fulfilling their duty to them and would rather serve the interests of illegal aliens who are likely to vote for them.
Another moment that emotionally resonated with me was when the God Emperor told the story of Ji Seong-Ho, a defector from North Korea. His story embodied the yearning that we has humans have for freedom, and the sacrifices that we must make to achieve it. I will never forget the sight of Seong-Ho raising his old crutches in the air to a resounding applause. As Americans, his story should be a reminder of the fact that most governments in the world are run by thugs, and what we have built here in America is a human treasure that must be preserved through intense sacrifice. We must show the same conviction as Seong-Ho if we are to preserve our nation, which was one of the main themes of the address.
The God Emperor’s speech was incredibly powerful not only in listing the achievements of his administration, but also in using the left’s own tactic of emotional appeal to promote a conservative agenda. I don’t see how the Democrats can give an effective response to what the God Emperor said that night. Instead, they will continue to look like the hateful power-addicts that they are. If this speech and the results of last year are anything to go by, the God Emperor will likely break apart the Democrat coalition and cement his reelection in 2020. America may never look back again after having tasted greatness under the watch of the God Emperor.
