Joe Biden demonizes Trump supporters in unhinged primetime speech

(American Greatness) — In a primetime speech to the nation Thursday night, Joe Biden targeted about half of the citizens in the United States with an unhinged message of condemnation, calling those who support former President Donald Trump “MAGA forces” who are a “threat to this country.”

The Biden White House has sharpened its attacks against its political enemies in recent weeks, calling Trump supporters a far-right “extremist threat” to Democracy who are motivated by an ideology of “semi-fascism.”

To justify the attacks, the White House has cited what it calls “attempts to undermine the right to vote” (voter integrity laws that most Americans support), support for laws banning or restricting abortion, and talk of repealing gay marriage.

Biden’s speech on the “battle for the soul of the nation” at Philadelphia‘s Independence National Historical Park was his second appearance in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania this week. Biden also took the opportunity to attack “MAGA” Republicans during a political rally in the Keystone State on Tuesday touting his latest gun grab.

Biden’s unhinged remarks targeting his political enemies have been seen by many Republicans in recent days as a dangerous dog-whistle to radical left-wing groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter to attack conservatives.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” Biden intoned. To appear fair, he sought to differentiate Trump supporters from more liberal Republicans.

“Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology,” he continued. “I know, because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans,” Biden added, suggesting that the degree to which a Republican is deemed an extremist is dependent upon how much they they are willing to work with him.

“But there’s no question that the Republican party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans,” he complained. “And that is a threat to this country.”

Staring intently at the teleprompter, Biden went on to make the case that he was a unifier, not a divider, like Trump. “I am an American president. Not a president of red America or blue America, but of all America,” he stated earnestly, even though he spent a large chunk of his first year in office demonizing millions of unvaccinated Americans.

“I believe it is my duty, my duty to level with you to tell the truth no matter how difficult, no matter how painful,” he continued. “And here in my view is what is true. MAGA Republicans don’t respect the Constitution,” Biden declared. “They do not respect the rule of law, they do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election,” he added bitterly, referring to the widespread belief the the 2020 election was rigged.

In a transparent case of liberal projection, Biden accused Republicans of working in “state after state” to give the power to decide elections “to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine Democracy itself.”

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards,” Biden said. “Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”

Continuing his diatribe against fellow Americans, Biden accused them of “promoting authoritarian leaders,” and fanning “the flames of political violence,” which, of course, is what he was doing by attacking Trump supporters.

“They are a threat to our personal rights and to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden claimed.

He then aimed his fury at those who view “the mob” that stormed the Capitol on January 6 as “patriots,” rather than as “insurrectionists who placed a dagger at the throat of our Democracy.”

Biden warned ominously that Trump supporters “see their MAGA failure to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

He added mournfully that the “MAGA Republicans” tried to overturn the votes of 81 million people, and predicted that “this time they are determined to succeed in thwarting the will of the people.”

“We are not powerless in the face of these threats. We are not bystanders in this ongoing attack on Democracy. There are far more Americans — FAR more Americans from every background and belief who reject the extreme MAGA ideology than those who accept it.”

He told his audience of leftists that they have the power  “to stop the assault on American Democracy.”

A heckler could be heard chanting “f—k Joe Biden!” during the part of the speech when Biden was talking about how the “election deniers” don’t believe he got 81 million votes.

Conservatives on Twitter were struck by the hellish red coloring in the background.

It appears that CNN, perhaps concerned about the optics, altered the blood red background to a softer, friendlier-looking pink.

Ace of Spades HQ spelled out what Biden was really attempting to do Thursday night by demonizing half the country:

“Joe Biden is laying the predicate justification for his violent Antifa allies to attack, beat, and kill conservatives.
He’s calling for violence against his political opponents, giving the Go Code to his own ‘Boogaloo’ troopers, while claiming that his opponents are the violent ones.
He is engaging in what his leftist allies now call ‘stochastic terrorism.’
While the exact definition has morphed over time, it has commonly come to refer to a concept whereby consistently demonizing or dehumanizing a targeted group or individual results in violence that is statistically likely, but cannot be easily or accurately predicted.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that by demonizing Trump Republicans, Biden is calling for “a one party state.”

“Does that make you nervous?” he asked.
