Do you enjoy living under a strong economy, with secure borders, laws that are enforced, the free exercise of religion and a collective understanding that it’s wildly inappropriate to teach young children about sexuality using your tax dollars?
Congratulations, you’ve just been deemed a threat to democracy by a sitting president of the United States!
I think we’re just one more insane volley of inflammatory anti-everyone-who-is-not-radically-progressive rhetoric away from really unifying this country, amirite?
So close. This must have been what it was like for Soviet citizens circa 1938, knowing that the glorious utopia of communism was right around the corner — just as soon as Stalin finished up dragging all the bad guys out of their beds at night and shooting them in cold blood without trial.
If you think I’m being terrifically dramatic, then you probably haven’t caught President Biden’s speech from Thursday night quite yet — I’m just going with the dystopian pre-Second Civil War mood the commander-in-chief has cast over this great nation over the last 12 hours.
"Equality and Democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise," says President Biden, at the beginning of his remarks tonight.

In case you haven’t, well, I pretty much summed it up when I said if you are anything other than a Lincoln Project #nevertrump Republican right now, you’ve been deemed a “threat” to democracy, to which MAGA Republicans smacked back swiftly.
Former President Donald Trump, newly enabled to treat the nation to his play-by-play commentary of the American political scene by his social media platform Truth Social, absolutely brutalized his aspiring arch-nemesis, setting the record straight about what “MAGA” really means.
“Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn’t want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn’t, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America!” he “truthed,” as the kids are calling it.
He went on to highlight the sheer insanity of Biden’s speech — and possibly literal insanity of our sitting president.
“If you look at the words and meaning of the awkward and angry Biden speech tonight, he threatened America, including with the possible use of military force. He must be insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!” Trump wrote in a follow-up truth.
He finished up with a picture of himself hugging the American flag side-by-side with a photo of angry Biden’s new dictator look, a message which he seems to have believed spoke for itself.

A number of prominent pro-Trump commentators took to Twitter (having not yet been permanently banned like their democracy-threatening overlord) to offer their own stunned feedback to the aggressive nature of Biden’s speech.
Evening address, dark lighting, somber tone, Marines in the background; this speech was designed like a declaration of war against enemies of the state
And that is precisely the point.

Like or loathe what he said tonight, it should be noted: The president spoke tonight on the grounds of a national park, flanked by US Marines, and took direct, specific aim at his predecessor and members of the Republican Party.
Another thing we don’t see everyday.

I love my country. I have since I was a little child. I served it, honorably, in a time of war. Last night, I was declared an enemy of it, for simply wanting it to be great again, and to be left alone. That hurts my heart, but strengthens my resolve. pic.twitter.com/Kh32XoBDfe

Trump was, of course, exactly right.
The movement behind him — and more importantly, against progressive radicals like the people driving Biden — has always been about simple, unifying American values that were hardly divisive just a decade ago.
And from a stage that looked like it was calculated to give the impression that he was willing to declare war on the American people if they keep prattling on about this “election integrity” and “not grooming kids,” President Biden stated plainly that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
Of course, this “extremism” according to Biden, the most progressive president the U.S. has ever seen, is manifested in the fact that “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.”
These insidious “MAGA forces” are threatening the very foundations of our republic because we have successfully used our system of self-governance to legislate and adjudicate against immoral practices that millions of Americans strongly oppose.
This is the myth the left would love you to believe about any and all opposition to both their radical social policies and their stinky swamp corruption: that “MAGA” is just a massive gaggle of rabid, racist, pro-Trump hicks who are foaming at the mouth to attack a Capitol building again.
(This, of course, in spite of the fact that there are a million things wrong with the official narrative on January 6 and the left has been leveraging it politically since the moment the building was first breached that fateful day. They’re hoping to ride it all the way to midterm success in November.)
The truth is, there are a great many more Americans other than emphatically pro-Trump Republicans who are angry with the Biden administration’s policies and the general trajectory of American politics and social values right now.
And can we really just disregard the fact that this speech came on the heels of some pretty explosive insight into the glaringly suspect corruption surrounding Hunter Biden’s FBI probe in 2020?
Yeah. You tell me who poses the real threat to the foundations of our republic.
Thanks Sir Donald, True Duly Elected US President!! Godspeed!!
I can see this old senile jackass of a man not giving up his office in the white house in 2024 he will refuse too go, he will have to be excavated from that position, maybe if the country is lucky he will expire while in office, I believe he has severe health issue’s.
I pray his expression date is near. I truly believe the dams going to break. There isn’t anyplace I go that I don’t hear of anger and hatred and thoughts of a civil war because of what this POS and the puppeteers have done to our USA. Please PRAY that God will have mercy on us and take this ignorant pant shitting, gumflapping, mush brained, satanic “person” or of the seat that belongs to the REAL PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT TRUMP.
WE CAN ONLY HOPE OUR PRAYERS BRING SWIFT PUNISHMENT TO BITLER. TO YOU BITLER I HOPE YOU HAVE BEEN CAST EVERY EVIL SPELL AND YOU FEEL THE FIRE CUZ SATANS COMING FOR YA!!
If “Basket of deplorables” had not already been used I am sure he would have lead with that. The senile old Potato in chief needs to resign immediately.
Biden’s set for his speech looked more like the Bridge of a Klingon warship from Star Trek. Red lighting, armed guards – all he was missing was some steam in the air and a big commander’s throne chair.
biden ( small b ) is the threat to America because he is the mouth piece for China. biden has not had an original thought or idea in the last 20 years a mere reader of Pravda. His types are used by powerful behind the scenes rulers who want to hand America to China.
