Do you remember when then President-elect Joe Biden promised to be the great unifier because then-President Donald Trump was allegedly a divisive leader who had brought America to the brink of civil war? Well, Biden has done absolutely nothing to unify the nation since his inauguration and has earned the title of the Great Divider as much as President Ronald Reagan earned the honor of being the Great Communicator.
Biden has not just appeased the extreme left of his party by canceling pipelines and erasing the southern border, he has become its cheerleader while eviscerating everyone who voted against him in the 2020 presidential election as white supremacists, racists, and domestic terrorists. On Thursday, he continued that smear campaign during a speech in Philadelphia, where the murder rate has already hit 361 for the year and threatens to attain an all-time high, set last year. Biden’s speech was supposed to be about democracy but it turned out to be another rant about those “MAGA Republicans” whom Biden has scapegoated for all the crimes and ills besetting the country.
If President Trump had stood before a blood-red background with military figures at attention, the media would have been apoplectic over the Nazi symbolism and the police state imagery. But Biden was allowed to use it without comment. I didn’t count the number of times he said MAGA, or how many times it sounded like maggot or mega, but it certainly dominated his speech.
But as usual, he managed to stand up in one of America’s most violent cities and accept no responsibility for the homicides or crime and instead blame Donald Trump and that MAGA crowd.
The president got right to his point.
“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic."
What extremism is he talking about. As usual, Biden doesn’t provide any examples of this extremism, but it is Biden who is threatening the very foundations of the republic – that being a two-party state. Biden clearly thinks America would be better off being a one-party Democratic state.
“Now, I want to be very clear — (applause) — very clear up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology."
“I know because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans,” Biden continued. Is he talking about RINOs? Those Republicans like Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) who are assiduously working to keep the Democratic narrative alive about the mythical Jan. 6 “insurrection” in order to feed the lies about Republican treason?"
“But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”
Then Biden really demonstrates how he’s incapable of discerning truth from lies; reality from illusion.
“But I’m an American President — not the President of red America or blue America, but of all America."
“And I believe it is my duty — my duty to level with you, to tell the truth no matter how difficult, no matter how painful.”
Just how can Biden posture as a president for all Americans when he dismisses half of them as extremists who are a threat to America and the only Republicans he can work with are the ones who promote his policies?
And Biden throws out more unverified accusations.
“And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.”
After alleging that these MAGA Republicans are “working right now” across America to give “partisans and cronies” the power to decide elections, Biden moves to his social policy narrative, where he suggests the GOP is trying to outlaw abortion, contraceptives, privacy and same-sex marriage. Biden knows the Republican position on abortion is to let the states decide, it has never tried to outlaw contraceptives, God knows what Biden is talking about on privacy and there is no move on to reverse same-sex marriage.
If Biden is not lying about these policies then they exist only in his increasingly confused mind.
The president then moves to his favorite theme of that Jan. 6 Capitol Hill riot that he insists posed a danger to the nation. He doesn’t mention how the FBI actively encouraged this “insurrection” or how people who merely walked into the Capitol building are still being held as political prisoners by the Biden administration.
“And they see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections,” Biden said. Really? How’s that going to happen. It’s the Democrats who are going mad with ballot harvesting and mail-in ballots.
“They tried everything last time to nullify the votes of 81 million people. This time, they’re determined to succeed in thwarting the will of the people,” Biden continued, probably alluding to the midterm elections. Is he suggesting that the Republicans can only succeed by fraud or more “insurrection” after the appalling performance that Biden has dished out over the past two years?
Biden the hypocrite really emerges when he talks about violence and how America “is a nation that rejects violence as a political tool. We do not encourage violence.” Well, what was the Democratic Party doing throughout the summer of 2020 when Black Lives Matter and Antifa were rioting across America and causing wanton damage to private and public property as well as injuring and killing innocent people. People like then-Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) were supporting fundraising to bail the accused of out jail.
“So, I want to say this plain and simple: There is no place for political violence in America. Period. None. Ever.”
Guess those are the new talking points.
And how about weaponizing the DOJ against parents who don’t want Critical Race Theory in their classrooms or against a former president? According to Biden, “This is a nation that believes in the rule of law. We do not repudiate it.”
But Biden still had the massive gall to call for unity after taking a sledge hammer to his political enemies and a machete to the MAGA Republicans.
“Tonight I’m asking our nation to come together, unite behind the single purpose of defending our democracy regardless of your ideology.”
Does this man think before he reads the lines in the teleprompter or does he even know what he’s saying? Sometimes you think you’re living in an alternate universe – one where Joe Biden is in charge.
