The Patriot Post® · President 'UNITY™!' to Rescue the Soul of America!
“To make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies, they are Americans. They are Americans.” —President-elect Joe Biden, November 7, 2020
As you recall, in Biden’s inaugural remarks in January 2021, his repeated theme was “unity,” but unity was intended to mean “conformity” — and if you don’t conform with the Left’s agenda, you are a deplorable enemy of the people.
Democrats have never been “unifiers” and it is disingenuous at best, to suggest otherwise. They are the undisputed masters of hate and division, and their political fortunes are completely dependent on creating discord. Biden has been dividing America for more than 50 years.
Recall also that Biden pledged to “restore the soul and to secure the future of America,” which was, ostensibly, the theme of his most recent prime-time address in Philadelphia: “The battle for the soul of the nation.”
According to his White House spokes-parrot, Karine Jean-Pierre: “We’re calling [Biden’s Thursday night speech] ‘the soul of the nation.’ He takes that very seriously when it comes to our democracy. … When you are not with where a majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking.” She declared: “When you are not with where a majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking.” She then added this zinger: “The MAGA Republicans are … an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights. They just don’t respect the rule of law.”
For the record, the “majority of Americans” are most certainly not aligned with Biden’s leftist ideology, and few Democrats have had even a passing relationship with Rule of Law in decades, and Beltway Demos are in violation of their oaths “to support and defend” our Constitution every day.
What unmitigated arrogance and deceit — Demos have GUTTED the soul of our nation, gutted the foundational principles of American Liberty, gutted our history, gutted our faith and our families. And now Biden has appointed himself our “savior”?
But that did not stop Biden from delivering the most stridently partisan and hate-filled presidential speech in my lifetime – which is to say, remarks deliberately calculated to fire up his unhinged leftists constituents ahead of the midterm elections. Now we know why all but a few cable channels rejected his “primetime presidential speech.” Apparently, they had heard enough of his hate and division rhetoric two days earlier in Wilkes-Barre, and it was too much for even his most fawning and sycophantic Leftmedia talkingheads and scribes to tolerate.
Notably, even his Leftist Demos have been oddly silent about this one.
Some people become more docile as they descend into dementia, others become more angry. But Biden did not write the words the read and he did not arrange the venue, which is to say his puppeteers are fully cognizant of the implications of these vitriolic remarks. And, he is surrounded by leftists who are full of hate and division.
Early this week, Biden set the tone for his Philadelphia remarks.
On the one-year anniversary of Biden’s deadly surrender and retreat from Afghanistan — abandoning hundreds of thousands of American-allied men, women, and children to the ravages of Islamo-fascist Taliban terrorists and reopening the most significant terror vector against the U.S. — he said not a word about Afghanistan.
However, he did recently claim that his domestic political opponents are fascists. That would be about half the country…
At his first staged and sparsely attended event in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Biden did not mention Afghanistan. Notably, however, he was greeted at that claimed “nonpartisan” event with a salute from a Marine band — some irony given that a year earlier 10 Marines, two Army soldiers, and a Navy corpsman, along with more than 155 Afghan civilian men, women, and children, were murdered in Kabul by a Biden-emboldened terrorist.
There are strenuous objections to the presence of thoseMarines in uniform given that Biden’s remarks devolved into an unhinged political hatefest. There is a military proscription against using uniformed personnel as props at a partisan political event. As Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) noted, “The only thing worse than Biden’s speech trashing his fellow citizens is wrapping himself in our flag and using Marines to do it.”
Biden was supposedly there to roll out his so-called “Safer America” plan — $37 billion in federal funding for 100,000 new police officers – among other things… Of that brazen attempt at a political “pro-police” makeover, Biden declared, “The answer is not ‘defund the police,’ it is ‘fund the police.’”
Right — the sheer audacity of that claim after he and his urban Demos across the nation unleashed a record surge of violence that has yet to subside, promoting their pre-2020 election “summer of rage” featuring their radical Black Lives Matter and antifa constituents.
Biden and his ilk led the “Defund the Police” movement to frame cops and our entire justice system as corrupted by “systemic racism.” The outcome was murder and mayhem resulting in billions in damages and record murders of police officers. Now Biden is pretending to be “pro-police” after so effectively demoralizing law enforcement officers that many departments can’t fill existing vacancies from officers who have left.
The the vilification started.
After insisting that conservatives want to attack America but will need “F-15s,” not “weapons of war,” which he vowed to confiscate, Biden asserted that Republican support the J6 Capitol riots. He then repeated the lie: “Police lost their lives as a result of that day. Police lost their lives.”
Biden proclaimed: “There is no place in this country — no place for endangering the lives of law enforcement. No place. None. Never. Period.”
Unless, of course, you count the record number of police officers who were killed in the line of duty last year as a direct result of Demo-induced hatred for police. And new records are being set this year.
Then, repeating the theme that “MAGA Republicans” want to bring the country down, he brazenly declared: “Did any of you think … you’d ever [see] an election where we talk about it’s appropriate to use force — political violence in America? It’s never appropriate. Never. Period. Never, never, never. No one should be encouraged to use political violence. None whatsoever.”
Unless, of course, your opponent is Donald Trump, in which case you can burn the country down.
Earlier in the day, Biden declared: “The extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice: to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate, and division. I respect conservative Republicans. I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans.” He then absurdly claimed that the policies advocated by conservatives constitute “semi-fascism.”
Apparently, his “ultra-MAGA” branding didn’t stick so he is now pushing the “MAGA fascists” label.
There is a familiar line from Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” that calls into question protests intended to divert attention: “[He] doth protest too much, methinks.”
Biden and his authoritarian cadre of socialists are clearly the most dangerously deranged threat to our Republic, or what he errantly calls “our democracy.” The “fundamental transformation” of the Democrat Party, launched by Barack Obama when Biden was his understudy, now poses the most imminent threat to our Constitution.
Democratic Socialism, like Nationalist Socialism, is nothing more than Marxist Socialism repackaged.
Biden et al. are using the BIG Lie tactic to blame-shift their most dangerous socialist/fascist inclinations to their opponents, and their unmitigated “gaslighting” must surely be a major threat to “climate change”! Blame-shifting is the pathological process of projection, projecting your own negative attributes onto others.
As for all his bluster about violence, a month after Biden took office, in the wake of the disgraceful J6 Capitol riot — I mean, “Insurrection™” — I wrote that he was baiting more violence in a calloused political calculation that such violence would win him political favor. Didn’t work.
After orchestrating the timing for the Mar-a-Lago search of Trump’s residence as bait last month, and now claiming Trump supporters are “semi-fascists,” he is again hoping for more “MAGA” violence ahead of the midterm elections.
Will it work this time? His strident rhetoric is certainly firing up his previously disillusioned socialist base. Biden may be chronically non compos mentis, but his puppeteer handlers should not be underestimate – they have already started to turn back the Republican tide predicted in November.
Notably, significant majorities of both Republicans and Democrats believe democracy is in danger of collapse, and more than 75% of America believes the nation is headed in the wrong direction, which explains why Biden’s approval rating is hovering around 40%.
So, on to Biden’s lates remarks at Independence Hall – a grossly unfitting backdrop for his faux quest to “save our souls”!
Ahead of that stop, Karine Jean-Pierre’s incompetence shined when asked if Biden’s speech was political: “No, it’s not a political speech. This is an opportunity, again, for the president to directly have a conversation with the — with the — the American people. … It’s not a speech about the former president or about a single politician or about a political party. … This is not about one political party. It is not what — about one political — one person in politics. … He’s not going to focus on a political party. He’s not going to foc- — focus on a political person. … It’s not a political part- — it’s not about a political person. It’s not about a political party.”
But in Philadelphia, in front of another sparse audience of 300, Biden unleashed a demented torrent of Demo-goguery against anyone who does not support his policies.
Using the place where our Constitution was written as a prop for what he insisted was the greatest threat to democracy, Biden droned on about the Republican threat:
I have come to this place where it all began to speak as plainly as I can to the nation about the threats we face. … As I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault. Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic. … 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 … 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.
… 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 of lies. … We are still an America that believes in honesty and decency and respect for others, patriotism, liberty, justice for all, hope, possibilities. … We’re all called, by duty and conscience, to confront extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else.
He then repeated the violence canard again.
We hear — you’ve heard it — more and more talk about violence as an acceptable political tool in this country. It’s not. It can never be an acceptable tool. So I want to say this plain and simple: There is no place for political violence in America. Period. None. Ever. … This is inflammatory. It’s dangerous. It’s against the rule of law. … Ladies and gentlemen, we can’t be pro-ex- — pro-ex- — pro-insurrectionist and pro-American. We can’t allow violence to be normalized in this country. It’s wrong. … Democracy endures only if we, the people, respect the guardrails of the republic. … I’m asking our nation to come together, unite behind the single purpose of defending our democracy regardless of your ideology. … We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving American democracy than MAGA Republicans are … to destroying American democracy. … The MAGA Republicans believe that for them to succeed, everyone else has to fail.
As for the “soul of America,” Biden insisted: “I believed we were in a battle for the soul of this nation. I still believe that to be true. I believe the soul is the breath, the life, and the essence of who we are. The soul is what makes us ‘us.’ The soul of America is defined by the sacred proposition that all are created equal in the image of God.”
The abject irony is that all of the BIG Lie “threats” he attributes to Republicans are, in fact, threats Biden and his ilk pose to Rule of Law and the future of Liberty.
It was notable that Biden did not mention in the “city of brotherly love” a single word about his so-called “Safer America” plan because, in a city where homicides reached an all-time high last year and are on pace to beat that this year, they know who unleashed that violence.
So, what Biden did say, and more importantly what he didn’t say in his Philadelphia remarks, provides an outline of the Democrats’ campaign strategy over the next nine weeks until Election Day.
Indicative of the Demos’ priorities, here are the number of times Biden repeated key words: “Republicans” 16, “MAGA” 13, “Elections” 11, “Violence” 10, “Extremism” 6, and “Unity” 2.
And, here are some key words Americans care most about, but Biden doesn’t: “Inflation” 0, “Debt” 0, “Crime” 0, “Border” 0, “Immigration” 0, “Fentanyl” 0, “BLM” 0, “Terrorism” 0, “China” 0, “Russia” 0, “Iran” 0, and, of course, “Afghanistan” 0.
Oh, and Kamala Harris: 0.
Notably, Biden mentioned “Democracy” 32 times while mentioning “Republic” ZERO times. Political analyst Scott Johnson to conclude, “I think the anti-Constitutional gist of it can be summed up in three words: ‘I, the People.’ Biden’s 32 references to ‘democracy’ reflect not so much a misunderstanding of, but rather a fundamental disagreement with, our constitutional set-up.” The speech was supposed to be about the “soul of America,” but he mentioned that only once. Biden did mention “I” 44 times.
All his blame-shifting bluster and projection aside, the most amusing part of Biden’s speech were the hecklers with bullhorns some distance away broadcasting “FJB” through his entire speech. Biden said of that heckling, “They’re entitled to be outrageous.” Indeed they are.
A day later Biden was changing his tune, claiming, “I don’t consider any Trump supporter a threat to the country.” That after claiming, “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”
Jean-Pierre spun it this way: “He’s been very clear he’s talking about officeholders. He’s talking about elected officials who have these MAGA, ultra-MAGA Republican agendas, and he’s been very clear about that.” Well, no.
Biden added: “I do think anyone who calls for the use of violence, fails to condemn violence when it’s used, refuses to acknowledge an election has been won, insists upon changing the way in which we rule and count votes, that is a threat to democracy.”
So, just exactly who “calls for the use of violence” and who “fails to condemn violence when it’s used”? Oh, that is more projection of Democrat strategies. And of those who question the 2020 election results, about half the country, Biden has forgotten the fact that he and many Demos are on record as “election deniers.”
And finally, once again to understand how packed full of bull pucky Biden is, let me repeat his victory speech words again: “To make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies, they are Americans. They are Americans.”
Footnote: Even the Leftmedia talkingheads complained about the Marines used as a backdrop for Biden’s Philadelphia speech. CNN anchor Brianna Keilar said: “Whatever you think of this speech the military is supposed to be apolitical. Positioning Marines in uniform behind President Biden for a political speech flies in the face of that.” CNN correspondent Jeff Zeleny added, “There’s nothing unusual or wrong with a president delivering a political speech — it’s inherent in the job description — but doing it against a backdrop of two Marines standing at attention and the Marine Band is a break with White House traditions.”
Responding to complaints about using Marines as political props, Jean-Pierre insisted, “The presence of the Marines at the speech was intended to demonstrate the deep and abiding respect the president has for these service members, to these ideals, and the unique role our independent military plays in defending our democracy.”
BTW these Marines were not at “attention” or “parade rest” as the media keeps insisting. In fact, their position is not one recognized by the Marine Drill and Ceremonies Manual. However, the Marine Barracks at 8th and I Street has some non-standard ceremonial positions and I am thinking this one is called “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”
And regarding Jean-Pierre’s canard that Biden’s speech was “not a political speech,” she now claims: “Standing up for Democracy is not political. Denouncing political violence is not political. Defending rights and freedom is not political. Making clear the challenges facing the nation is not political. We don’t call any of that political. We see that as leadership, and we see that as presidential.”
