The Big Semi Fascist Sooper Thread

✪ Joe Biden Labels 74 Million Americans As Enemies Of The State

▶️ STORY HERE

✪ President Biden doubled down on his regime’s authoritarian rhetoric during a speech in front of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, the site where the Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. Biden accused Donald Trump and “MAGA Republicans” of being an existential threat to U.S. “democracy” during a primetime address on Thursday night. The speech followed days of escalating rhetoric against “MAGA Republicans” from the Biden regime.

“This is where the United States Constitution was written and debated,” Biden said Thursday in front of an ominous red backdrop. “This is where we set in motion the most extraordinary experiment of self government the world has ever known.”

“But as I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault,” he continued. “We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise. So, tonight, I’ve come to this place where it all began, to speak as plainly as I can to the nation about the threats we face, about the power we have in our hands to meet these threats and about the incredible future that lies in front of us if only we choose it,” he continued.

“Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic,” Biden continued. “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.”

The Biden regime billed the speech as crystallizing the “battle for the soul of the nation,” though they claim the partisan speech was not meant to be political. Biden condemned “talk about violence as an acceptable political tool, ” adding, “I want to say this plain and simple, there is no place for political violence in America.”

Ironically, Biden threatened to use military jets against gun owning Americans just two days prior.

The president “elected” by the party who never accepted Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 has attacked Congressional Republicans for questioning the widespread election irregularities that led to Biden’s seat in the White House. He and his regime have accused “MAGA Republicans” of attacking U.S. “democracy” while falsely accusing them of being at odds with a majority of Americans.

Earlier in the day, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that Americans in opposition to the majority are extremists. “You know, when you ask me about the MAGA agenda, especially as it relates to Congress, relates to elected officials, it is one of the most extreme agendas that we have seen… it is the extreme part of the Republican Party,” Jean-Pierre said. She further claimed they “are threatening political violence and they are attacking our democracy.”

“When you are not with what majority of Americans are, then you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking,” she continued. A recent Reuters poll had Joe Biden’s approval rating at 38%, far from majority support.

The Biden regime is expected to continue its divisive rhetoric in the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections. ✪

✪ Biden Demonizes Trump Supporters in Unhinged Prime Time Diatribe

▶️ STORY HERE

In a prime time speech to the nation Thursday night, Joe Biden targeted about half of the citizens in the United States with an unhinged message of condemnation, calling those who support former President Donald Trump “MAGA forces” who are a “threat to this country.”

The Biden White House has sharpened its attacks against its political enemies in recent weeks, calling out Trump supporters a far-right “extremist threat” to Democracy who are motivated by an ideology of “semi-fascism.”

To justify the attacks, the White House has cited what it calls “attempts to undermine the right to vote” (voter integrity laws that most Americans support),  support for laws banning or restricting abortion, and talk of repealing gay marriage.

Biden’s speech on the “battle for the soul of the nation” at Philadelphia‘s Independence National Historical Park was his second appearance in the key battleground state of Pennsylvania this week. Biden also took the opportunity to attack “MAGA” Republicans during an political rally in the Keystone State on Tuesday touting his latest gun grab.

Biden’s unhinged remarks targeting his political enemies have been seen by many Republicans in recent days as a dangerous dog-whistle to radical left-wing groups like antifa and Black Lives Matter, to attack conservatives.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic,” Biden intoned. To appear fair, he sought to differentiate Trump supporters from more liberal Republicans.

“Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology,” he continued. “I know, because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans,” Biden added, suggesting that the degree to which a Republican is deemed an extremist is dependent upon how much they they are willing to work with him.

“But there’s no question that the Republican party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans,” he complained. “And that is a threat to this country.”

Staring intently at the teleprompter, Biden went on to make the case that he was a unifier, not a divider, like Trump. “I am an American president. Not a president of red America or blue America, but of all America,” he stated earnestly, even though he spent a large chunk of his first year in office demonizing millions of unvaccinated Americans.

“I believe it is my duty, my duty to level with you to tell the truth no matter how difficult, no matter how painful,” he continued. “And here in my view is what is true. MAGA Republicans don’t respect the Constitution,” Biden declared. “They do not respect the rule of law, they do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election,” he added bitterly, referring to the widespread belief the the 2020 election was rigged.

In a transparent case of liberal projection, Biden accused Republicans of working in “state after state” to give the power to decide elections “to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine Democracy itself.”

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards,” Biden said. “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.”

Continuing his diatribe against fellow Americans, Biden accused them of “promoting authoritarian leaders“, and fanning “the flames of political violence,” which of course, is what he was doing by attacking Trump supporters.

“They are a threat to out personal rights and to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the vert soul of this country,” Biden intoned.

He then aimed his fury at those who view “the mob” that stormed the Capitol on January 6, as “patriots,” rather than as “insurrectionists who placed a dagger at the throat of our Democracy.”

Biden warned ominously that Trump supporters “see their MAGA failure to prevent a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

He added mournfully that the “MAGA Republicans” tried to overturn the votes of 81 million people, and predicted that “this time they are determined to succeed in thwarting the will of the people.”

“We are not powerless in the face of these threats. We are not bystanders in this ongoing attack on Democracy. There are far more Americans—FAR more Americans from every background and belief who reject the extreme MAGA ideology than those who accept it.”

He told his audience of leftists that they have the power  “to stop the assault on American Democracy.”

A heckler can be heard chanting “fuck Joe Biden!” during the part of the speech when Biden was talking about how the “election deniers” don’t believe he got 81 million votes.

Conservatives on Twitter were struck by the hellish red coloring in the background:

It appears that CNN, perhaps concerned about the optics, altered the blood red background to a softer, friendlier-looking pink:

Ace of Spades HQ spelled out what Biden was really attempting to do Thursday night by demonizing half the country:

“Joe Biden is laying the predicate justification for his violent antifa allies to attack, beat, and kill conservatives. He’s calling for violence against his political opponents, giving the Go Code to his own “Boogaloo” troopers, while claiming that his opponents are the violent ones. He is engaging in what his leftist allies now call “stochastic terrorism:” While the exact definition has morphed over time, it has commonly come to refer to a concept whereby consistently demonizing or dehumanizing a targeted group or individual results in violence that is statistically likely, but cannot be easily accurately predicted.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that by demonizing Trump Republicans, “Biden is calling for a one party state.”

✪ Biden: Trump & ‘MAGA Republicans’ Threaten Our Republic’

▶️ STORY HERE

President Biden said former president Donald Trump and the ‘MAGA Republicans’ represent “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic” during a speech on Thursday night.

“Now I want to be very clear up front not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans are MAGA Republicans,” Biden said in his remarks, which were touted as a “soul of the nation” address.

He added: “Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology. I know because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans. But there’s no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans and that is a threat to this country.”

Biden went on to say that MAGA Republicans “do not respect the Constitution” and “do not believe in the rule of law.”

“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,” he added.

Biden claimed “MAGA forces are determined to take this country 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.”

The president’s comments come after Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he was “going to look at everything that we can do to deal with these issues” after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Let’s face it: This is a MAGA Supreme Court — a MAGA, right-wing extremist Supreme Court — very, very far away from not only where the average American is, but even the average Republican,” Schumer said earlier this year.

In his concurring opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that the Court “should reconsider” its decisions in Griswold v. ConnecticutLawrence v. Texas, and Obergefell v. Hodges, which established a right to contraception, privacy in the bedroom, and same-sex marriage, respectively.

Thomas’s reasoning was that the Court’s majority found that a right to abortion was not a form of “liberty” protected by the due-process clause of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. He said the Court therefore had a duty to “correct the error” in the other three precedents, which relied upon the same legal reasoning as Roe. He wrote that after “overruling these demonstrably erroneous decisions, the question would remain whether other constitutional provisions” protected the rights established in the three cases.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the Court’s majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that the ruling does not affect issues other than abortion.

On Thursday, the president went on to say there is “no place for political violence in America. Period. None. Ever.”

He cited several examples of political violence, including attacks against law enforcement during the Capitol riot, intimidation and death threats against poll works, and threats against FBI agents.

“On top of that there are public figures from today, yesterday and the day before predicting and all but calling for mass violence and rioting in the streets,” he added. “This is inflammatory. It’s dangerous. It’s against the rule of law. And we the people must say, this is not who we are.”

However, while President Biden spent his speech criticizing “MAGA Republicans,” Democrats have come under fire repeatedly since 2020 for endorsing political violence, first amid the nation’s racial reckoning after the murder of George Floyd and later when the Supreme Court overturned Roe.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel responded to Biden’s speech on Thursday noting that the president’s “wretched attacks on millions of Americans have fueled attacks on pregnancy centers, Republican offices, and an assassination attempt on a Supreme Court Justice” — referring to a California man’s foiled assassination plot against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

She added: “Joe Biden is the divider-in-chief and epitomizes the current state of the Democrat Party: one of divisiveness, disgust, and hostility towards half the country.”

Ahead of Biden’s address, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters the speech would not be a political one, despite the president making direct attacks against Republican lawmakers.

Near the close of his speech he claimed, “We need to see each other not as enemies but as fellow Americans.”

Earlier on Thursday, Jean-Pierre told reporters that the president planned to talk about protecting freedom and that those who disagree with him are “extreme.”

“When you are not with where majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking,” she said. ✪

✪ Who Are You Calling Fascist, Mr. President?

▶️ STORY HERE

The other day, President Joe Biden accused voters of the opposition party of turning to “semi-fascism.” This is probably the first time in American history a president has openly attacked the opposing party’s constituents in this way.

Then again, Biden, who once alleged that the chaste Mitt Romney was harboring a desire to bring back chattel slavery, is prone to stupid hyperbole.

And it’s true that most people who throw around the word “fascist” fail to do so with much precision.

These days, the word “democracy,” like “fascism,” has lost all meaning. According to Democrats, asking someone to show ID before voting is an attack on “democracy,” but so is the Supreme Court’s handing back power to voters on the abortion issue.

When you have no limiting principles of governance, anything that inhibits your exertion of power is seen as “anti-democracy.” If students have loans to be repaid, “forgive” them. If you can’t pass a bill, the executive branch should do it by fiat. If the court stops it, pack it.

Power is only to be limited when the opposition holds it.

A microcosm of this confused thinking can be found in the recent spate of hysterical media pieces about alleged Republican “book banning.” The use of “ban” by the media is more than a category error; it’s an effort to paint parents who use the very same exact democratic powers the left has relied on for decades as book burners.

Public school curricula and book selection are political questions decided by school and library boards. Neither have a duty to carry every single volume on racial identitarianism or sexually explicit material simply demanded by some busybody at the American Library Association.

Henry Olsen of the Ethics and Public Policy Center notes that fascists “believed that multiparty democracy weakened the nation, and that competitive capitalism was wasteful and exploitative. Their alternative was a one-party state that guided the economy through regulation and sector-based accords between labor and business.”

Well, is it not the left that champions government intervention in the economy, with never-ending regulations, subsidies, and mandates that effectively allow for controlling the means of production?

Leftists—some incrementally, some less so—are the proponents of nationalizing the health care system, the energy sector, and education. Again, if progressives have any limiting principles when it comes to intervention in our economic lives, I’d love to hear about them.

Are the most vociferous defenders of “democracy” not the ones who sound suspiciously like they want a one-party state? Modern Democrats have stopped debating policy or accepting the legitimacy of anyone who stands in their way.

They will pass massive, generational reforms using parliamentary tricks, without any input from the minority. And they don’t merely champion their work as beneficial; they claim these bills are needed for the survival of “democracy” and “civilization”—nay, the survival of the planet.

Anyone who opposes saving Mother Earth is surely an authoritarian. There is nothing to debate. The villainization of political opponents isn’t new, but we are breaking new ground.

Some may find it a bit fascist-y that the FBI feels free to instruct giant rent-seeking corporations to censor news to help elect their preferred candidate, as it did with Facebook. Or that the White House is in the business of “flagging problematic posts” and threatening corporations to “root out misleading speech” or be held accountable.

One wouldn’t be off-base seeing a “Disinformation Governance Board” that sifts through speech the administration dislikes or a Justice Department that treats those protesting authoritarian school boards as “domestic terrorists” as “semi-fascist.”

It is curious, as well, that the same people who control basically all major institutions in American life—academia, media, unions, Silicon Valley, Wall Street, trade associations, public schools, publishing, the entire D.C. bureaucracy, Hollywood, Madison Avenue, not to mention the presidency and Congress—claim to be victims of budding authoritarianism.

The only major institution free of progressives’ grip right now is the Supreme Court. And the left is engaged in a systematic effort to delegitimize the court for doing its job and limiting the state’s power.

None of this is to say that the right is innocent. I often find myself debating the populist right on issues ranging from the free markets to the role of the state.

Abuses of the Constitution should be called out, no matter who engages in them. However, progressivism’s crusade to destroy the separation of powers, its attacks on religious freedom and free speech, its undermining of civil society, its binding of the economy to the state, and its fostering of perpetual dependency and victimhood are far bigger long-term threats to the republic than Trumpism—and far closer to the definition of “semi-fascism” than the Republican agenda? ✪

✪ Team Biden Desperately Tries to Spin Partisan Speech

▶️ STORY HERE

President Joe Biden’s staffers worked furiously Thursday night to combat accusations that his speech at Independence Hall was too partisan against “extreme” MAGA Republicans.

The president repeatedly condemned “MAGA Republicans” and supporters of former President Donald Trump as violent extremists who represented a threat to American democracy.

“Democracy is not a partisan or political issue,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Chris Meagher wrote on social media, criticizing a CNN anchor’s description of the speech as “political”

“Except it’s not political,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Andrew Bates insisted, featuring the same criticism of Biden’s speech.

Bates also claimed that journalists were being hypocritical for suggesting that Biden’s speech was too partisan.

“It’s not ‘political,’ it’s his duty,” wrote White House senior adviser for communications to the National Economic Council.

White House director of digital strategy Rob Flaherty compared Biden’s speech to the nation’s first president George Washington’s Farewell Address:

Even former Biden officials tried to defend the president. “Defending democracy is necessary because it is under threat. That doesn’t make that defense of one of our fundamental values as a county partisan or political. (Because it’s not),” former White House press secretary Jen Psaki wrote on Twitter:

Former press secretary for Vice President Kamala Harris said Biden’s speech was “not” a campaign speech. Prior to tonight I thought, oh this is a campaign speech…after listening it clearly was not. I heard a POTUS ringing the alarm about the real threat to our nation,” she wrote.✪
