President Biden has spent the entire year testing this bumper sticker motto on our allies abroad, “America is back,” and finally made it known here at home on July 4.
But what Biden meant across the pond and what he’s saying here now are completely different things.
Told europe America is back because Trump is gone and so is his “America First” policy, so Europe can once again get into our business and dictate American policy like in the good old days of King George.
Here at home, Biden’s Independence Day message rang that America is back, because we’re upset.
This July 4, the United States is back.
We are heading into a summer of joy, of freedom, thanks to the millions of Americans who stepped up to get vaccinated. To the frontline and essential workers who have made this day possible: Thank you. pic.twitter.com/g6cztrJDT8

It was not expressly written in the Declaration of Independence that freedom is granted with a syringe, but that seems to be the new interpretation of the living document of the Democratic Party.
Biden says that it is our syringe right that we are free to travel, open our businesses, graduate from college, get married and go to the movies to support Hollywood.
The Colorado Democratic Party got the talking points, but judging by their July 4 post, they found the topic confusing and ended up burying Biden’s sticker catchphrase in a photo of (gasp) white people, they hit the logo of your jerk match on a guy’s butt. , tossed in some talking points about liberal guilt and called it quits for the day.
Happy 4th of July!
Today, we must not only celebrate the values of freedom, independence and self-determination that we hold dear as a state and as a country, but we must also reflect on how we can work together to move our country towards a more perfect union. ! 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/yfrMsg1hhl

The Colorado Democratic delegation followed suit, phoning the weakest Independence Day messages imaginable.
US Rep. Diana DeGette didn’t even bother to acknowledge America’s 245th birthday.
As for the rest …
Governor Polis redoubled his shortcomings:
🇺🇸 Happy Independence Day 🇺🇸

United States Representative Jason Crow is a veteran, so he can’t pretend like the others that it was just a date and nothing more.
But if he’s not working to keep others safe, he’s not worthy of Crow’s Independence Day wishes.
I believe in this country.
I believe in its people.
I think America’s promise is something worth fighting for.
Happy #Independence Day to our troops, first responders, healthcare professionals and all who are working to keep us safe today and every day.

Meanwhile, US Representative Ed Perlmutter is working hard to free us from British rule.
Today we celebrate the resilience of Americans and our enduring fight for freedom. I am grateful to be able to celebrate our independence with family and friends and I look forward to continuing to work to ensure that the vision of our Declaration of Independence is a reality for all. # Happy4th pic.twitter.com/mTQL9UyhL7

On the Republican side of the aisle, patriotism emerged naturally.
The healthiest Christmas wishes came from Colorado Republican Party Chair Kristi Burton Brown:

U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn gave America a big bear hug:
245 years ago, our founders declared their independence and created a nation based on the principles of liberty, faith, and liberty. As the leftists try to bring down America, we must remain committed to these principles. America is truly a great country. Happy 4th of July and God bless America. pic.twitter.com/NwYhs3HmPA

US Representative Ken Buck checked all the patriotic boxes:
Today 245 years ago, America was founded on the principles of liberty and liberty.
Happy Independence Day to the greatest nation in the world. God bless America! 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/n5bxyxcygZ

And the prolific tweeter, US Rep. Lauren Boebert, launched several pro-American messages, including this one:
The United States is the largest country in the world. We are a nation defined by liberty and liberty.

Despite the self-loathing of their liberal base, some Democrats seem to finally get the message that most Americans really love their country, as do the Dreamers who want American citizenship and the migrants they encourage to cross our border. .
At least they are willing to say the words, America is back, but they are not yet ready to say it seriously.
