Just a week after President Joe Biden demonized millions of Trump supporters as “semi-fascists,” he is now preparing to deliver a major speech to heal the “soul of the nation.”
Last week Biden said, “It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something — it’s like semi-fascism.”
Biden criticized the “extreme MAGA philosophy” driving the Republican Party.
During Biden’s 2020 campaign, he made calls for unity, but if the last 18 months are anything to go by, he’s done anything but that.
“Instead of treating each other’s party as the opposition, we treat them as the enemy. This must end,” Biden said during his October 2020 speech at Gettysburg.
On Thursday, Biden plans to deliver his new “soul of the nation” speech at 8:00 pm near Independence Hall in Pennsylvania.
But it is apparent Biden is more willing to demonize Republicans and Trump supporters as a threat to Democracy.
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security, they’re a threat to our very democracy,” Biden said at a campaign rally.
As Biden remains weighted under abysmal approval ratings on economic issues, his political team has tried to brand MAGA Republicans as “the other” party that is a fundamental danger to the United States ahead of the midterm elections.
“There are not many real Republicans anymore,” Biden lamented, adding that “I respect conservative Republicans, I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans.”
In the wake of the recent FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago, more Republicans believe the government is weaponized against MAGA.
Biden also spoke about “right-wing” Americans who valued the Second Amendment holding government accountable to the people.
“For those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping America independent and safe, if you want to fight against the country, you need an F-15, you need something a little more than a gun,” he said during a speech on Wednesday.
