Biden’s Basket of Deplorables

Elon Musk is right — it’s the woke progressive movement that has radically moved to the far-left fringe.

Remember when Hillary Clinton condemned half the country to her “basket of deplorables”? Well, Joe Biden did his best Hillary impersonation Wednesday. Biden blasted the MAGA movement (Make America Great Again) as “the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history.”


More extreme than Antifa, which routinely engages in violence?

More extreme than the Black Panthers?

More extreme than radical environmentalists?

More extreme than the Nation of Islam?

Biden also suggested that conservatives want to ban contraception and kick “LGBTQ children” out of school. No, what’s really extreme is Biden’s rhetoric. Once again, this is pure demagoguery, and his outrageous slanders should be condemned.

But it’s also a teachable moment. Use it to remind your friends on the fence about who is really dividing America.

Joe Biden campaigned on a promise to unite the country. Instead, he’s pandered to the fringe left. As a result, Americans overwhelmingly feel that Joe Biden is dividing us, rather than uniting us.

And what does the MAGA/America First movement stand for?

  • Following the Constitution.
  • Supporting law enforcement.
  • That skin color shouldn’t matter.
  • That our leaders should put the interests of the United States before the interests of other countries.
  • That our borders should be secure.

These are hardly controversial ideas. They’re not even partisan ideas. But just to reiterate the points I made in Friday’s report, it’s the left that has become utterly unhinged. Elon Musk is right — it’s the woke progressive movement that has radically moved to the far-left fringe.

It’s the left that calls the Constitution “trash.”
It’s the left that wants to defund the police.
It’s the left that promotes Marxist critical race theory.
It’s the left that wants open borders.
It’s the left that says “America was never great.”

Now that’s extreme.
