For most politicians, Independence Hall in Philadelphia would be the perfect backdrop for a patriotic speech. But Biden’s handlers apparently thought it would be better to stage the boss’s dark rhetoric with blood-red lighting and shadowy Marines standing at attention, suggesting a cross between the 6th circle of Hell and a Fidel Castro rally.
There were also echoes of Emmanuel Goldstein’s Two Minutes Hate in George Orwell’s 1984.
“MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow lies together,” Biden said of the 50% of Americans who did not vote for him. “The MAGA Republicans are… destroying American democracy,” he continued. “There are dangers around us. We cannot allow them to prevail… I want to say this plain and simple. There is no place for political violence. In America period. Not ever.” Of course, there was no mention of Antifa or BLM rioters who have rioted and destroyed city after American city in the last few years. Monica Crowley rightly called the speech an “orgy of projection.”
There is a very real possibility that Biden will back up his threatening speech with actions. He may not round us up in ghettos (at least not in his first term) but make no mistake: He just declared war on 74 million of his fellow Americans. If Republicans don’t win big in the midterms, or if Joe Biden gets a second term, there will be no stopping the Left. Our most sacred rights—freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association, the right to bear arms—could go away—poof—like all that student debt he just “forgave.”
