President Joe Biden may have quickly forgotten the current angle of attack the Democrats embraced with his dark Independence Hall address last week but his speechwriters haven’t, and Monday in Wisconsin the president resumed his maligning of the American people and their representatives with charges of “anger, violence, hate and division.”
Hitting the campaign trail to attempt to maintain the Senate come November, Biden found himself in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for Monday’s Laborfest at Henry Maier Festival Park. While he may have started off upbeat and positive about union workers and allies running for office, including Senate candidate Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes (D) who evidently chose not to appear with the president, it wasn’t long before Biden resumed attacks against arguably no less than 74 million Americans.
“I want to be very clear upfront, not every Republican is a MAGA Republican. Not every Republican embraces that extreme ideology,” he stated as he tried to yet again draw a distinction between the less approved RINOs and moderates with former President Donald Trump’s supporters who set a record for Republican turnout in the 2020 presidential election. “I know because I’ve been able to work with mainstream Republicans in my whole career.”
"Not every Republican is a MAGA Republican," Pres. Biden says in Milwaukee.

“But the extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress have chosen to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate and division,” Biden distinguished once more as he attempted to both temper his remarks from Thursday and push the narrative of a wide-ranging threat from conservatives who remain among the most vocal supporters of the Constitution and the republic it was ratified to maintain.
The president even went as far as referring to a heckler as an “idiot” as he returned to his diatribe on the “battle for the soul of America.”
As an attendee shouted his piece from the crowd that swiftly turned on the man, Biden chided them for their attempts to suppress the moment and suggested, “look, everybody is entitled to be an idiot.”

From there he pivoted back into “Extreme MAGA Republicans” to begin taking shots at Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) as he argued they “don’t just threaten our personal rights and our economic security. They embrace political violence.”
“Sen. Johnson said it was a by and large a peaceful protest,” Biden argued touching on Jan. 6 with exaggerated claims. “Have you seen the video of what happened that day? Listened to the stories of the members from both parties of Congress and the jeopardy they were put in? Cops attacked and assaulted, speared with flag poles, sprayed with mace, stomped down, dragged, brutalized.”
So toxic has the president become in the view of members of his own party that Barnes, whom Biden was ostensibly campaigning for by appearing in Wisconsin, chose not to attend the rally. Though the president may have claimed that Barnes, “couldn’t be here,” the lieutenant governor’s social media showed that he went to the Milwaukee and Madison Laborfest events Monday and readily could have joined Biden.

Naturally, as his own party struggles with its own unity, Biden continued his drive to sow division on the right as he brought up Sen. Rick Scott’s (R-Fla.) proposals that had not been formally adopted by the Republican platform as though they were set plans of the party.
“Read the Republican campaign plan, the Senate campaign they put out this year. Go online and read it. Sen. Rick Scott of Florida heads up that campaign committee…They want to require Congress to vote on the future of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid every five years to decide whether they continue,” Biden stated accurately before pointing out Johnson wants to see the sunsetting of legislation happen annually.
“He wants to put Social Security and Medicare literally on that chopping block every single year, treated like any other appropriation,” the president railed as though it would be a bad thing for the most current Congress to reaffirm the will of the people and suggested that it was not already currently within the legislature’s power to vote on these things annually anyway.
