During his 5-decade long career in the washington swamp Biden found a new way to hit rock bottom with his inciteful hate speech dubbed ‘soul of the nation’ just proved to be a conservative bash fest. It was so horrific Washington Times columnist Charlie Hurt called his speech ‘rancid’.
“I’ve never seen such an angry, rancid speech in which a president attacks the voters that he supposedly works for,” he said.
“It’s also very senseless because at another point in the speech, he starts talking about how this is not normal.”
During the speech, Biden appeared to be heckled from a distance by individuals who shouted “Let’s Go Brandon” – as well as the explicit phrase it is a euphemism for.
Biden interrupted his remarks at one point to declare such people “have the right to be outrageous.”
He billed his enemies “MAGA Republicans” – which is an acronym for “Make America Great Again.”
Just an interesting tidbit. During Biden’s divisive speech he mentioned MAGA at least 13 times. He only mentioned Trump 4 times. I would say it’s an improvement but what it shows is that Biden’s war is no longer with Trump, but Trump supporters as he tried to convince a nation to hate conservative voters. Here’s a snipit of that speech below:
“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.
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.
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.
These are hard things.
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.
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.
They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine democracy itself.
MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards — 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.
They promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.
They look at the mob that stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th — brutally attacking law enforcement — not as insurrectionists who placed a dagger to the throat of our democracy, but they look at them as patriots.
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.
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.
That’s why respected conservatives, like Federal Circuit Court Judge Michael Luttig, has called Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans, quote, a “clear and present danger” to our democracy.
But while the threat to American democracy is real, I want to say as clearly as we can: 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 — from every background and belief who reject the extreme MAGA ideology than those that accept it. ”
Later he added, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.
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.”
You can watch the whole ‘rancid’ speech here. I promise it’s full of hateful divisiveness just like the little snippet above is.
