Since Donald Trump delivered his statement declaring that Mexico wasn't sending us its best in 2015 while descending the golden escalator, Democrats have been pushing for political violence against anyone who support Donald Trump. Since that time, Democrats and others who support them have been actively engaging in acts of physical violence against Trump supporters. Do you remember when Antifa started physically assaulting women and girls wearing MAGA hats? That was in the summer of 2015, more than a full year before we ultimately chose him for the position. In recent times, however, the level of violent language coming from the left has been turned up to 11. At essence, a new civil war has been started against "MAGA Republicans" by Joe Biden and his press spokesman in the White House.
A few days ago, when giving a campaign address for Democratic candidates who are struggling to win seats in the House and Senate, Biden said that "the MAGA Republicans" are "semi-fascists." He labeled those who did not vote for him as extremists who threaten our democracy in the sentence. It should come as no surprise that when Democrats use the word democracy, what they really mean is only elections that we win.
Even at the time of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln never once used such vicious language when referring to people who didn't vote for him. This is something that should go without saying. Nobody from the White House has ever spoken about regular people in the United States of America in this manner. We are currently sailing into unexplored waters.
A few days later, during a press briefing at the White House, a reporter asked Biden's press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, whether the former vice president had genuinely meant what he said about MAGA Republicans. She decreased by a factor of four.
The authoritarian character Donald Trump is, who is inciting violence and wants to take away our freedoms, is the current president. Fascism is represented by Donald Trump and those who support him. That's what the press secretary for the person who just broke student loan contracts for his own voters, who's arrested his opponent's political supporters, who's had January 6 election justice protesters locked up for years without even a misdemeanor trespassing conviction, who's sent the Justice Department after parents who speak up at school board meetings, and who's just hired 87,000 new IRS agents to audit the middle class, has to say. Who exactly was the fascist in that situation, exactly?
Again, Democrats are accustomed to screaming for violence against ordinary people on the right side of the political spectrum. They have been since the beginning. However, this is not the case. No one has ever stigmatized the American people in such a way from the Oval Office of the White House as Joe Biden and his flack have done tonight. Fascists? To label people who support MAGA as fascists is the same as encouraging violence against those people.
Because fascists are bad people, there is no use in discussing politics with them because they are terrible. They might as well be killed. At this point, would anybody be astonished if Antifa began carrying out assassinations of Republican politicians… and the Justice Department disregarded it?
Nothing here is fresh or novel. When Donald Trump kept winning every poll and every debate during the Republican primary in 2015, Hillary Clinton began pushing for violence to be committed against Trump supporters. In addition, Barack and Michelle Obama, as well as Eric Holder, the former Attorney General, participated.
Remember Maxine Waters? She instructed her supporters that if they encounter a member of Trump's cabinet in public, they should form a throng and force them to leave restaurants, petrol stations, or wherever else they might be. She said this should be done if they see the person in a public place. This was done by Democrats to people who favor Trump. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is literally one of the nicest people in the world (and will soon be the future Governor of Arkansas), was forced to get up and leave a restaurant in Virginia with her family because rabid Democrats were yelling at them.
If the Democrats do not soon begin to tone down the violent rhetoric that they are using against Trump supporters, they are going to force the country into an ugly place from which we will not be able to recover. Up until this point, we have shown patience with them, but it won't last forever. The American middle class, also known as Trump's base, is known for remaining calm and patient during all situations; yet, once that breaking point is reached, we will do that strange thing that the middle class in the United States has always done. We carried it out not once but twice throughout Europe during the course of the 20th century, in addition to carrying it out at other periods. The Democrats have to stop thinking that our patience is something that will last forever because the truth is that it is running out. They won't be happy with the following events.
