In a tone-deaf Christmas address to the nation, the man who called tens of millions of Republicans a “threat to this country” bemoaned that our politics have become so “angry.”
Suffice it to say, the assertion did no go over well with those on the right who are regularly targeted and demonized by the intolerant left, called Nazis, and worse for simply holding a different opinion on what is best for America.
“Our politics has gotten so angry, so mean, so partisan,” President Joe Biden said on Thursday, reading the words coming across the teleprompter. “And too often we see each other as enemies, not as neighbors; as Democrats or Republicans, not as fellow Americans. We’ve become too divided.”
Biden: "My hope this Christmas season is that we take a few moments of quiet reflection — find that stillness that's at the heart of Christmas, and really look at each other, not as Democrats or Republicans, not as members of team red or team blue … [but] as fellow Americans" pic.twitter.com/UqDv10HOTa

“Mr. Unity,” as Biden is sometimes referred to over his inaugural speech that talked about left and right joining forces to “stop the shouting and lower the temperature. For without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.”
That speech was followed by one angry attack after another on the opposition by this president, who clearly lives in a political bubble of his own making based on his Christmas remarks this week.
“My hope this Christmas season is that we take a few moments of quiet reflection, find that stillness at the heart of Christmas,” Biden said, “and look, really look at each other, not as Democrats or Republicans, not as members of Team Red or Team Blue, as who we really are, fellow Americans, fellow human beings worthy being treated with dignity and respect.”
“I sincerely hope this holiday season will drain the poison has infected our politics and set us against one another,” he added. “I hope this Christmas season marks a fresh start for our nation, because there’s so much that unites us as Americans. So much more that unites us than divides us. We’re truly blessed to live in this nation. And I truly hope we take the time to for one another not at one another.”
Again, this coming from the same man who gave what many called the darkest speech ever by a U.S. president back in September, where he said Donald Trump and his supporters “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

It seems clear that Biden thinks the American people are stupid and more often than not we give him every reason to believe so — beginning with his being elected president.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s spokesman Chad Gilmartin was quick to respond to the hypocrisy on display: “How does Joe Biden get away with this phony unity rhetoric after he smeared half the country as domestic terrorists and compared anyone who opposes his radical agenda to segregationists?”

Townhall.com managing editor Spencer Brown tweeted: “Says the guy who tried to turn Americans against each other over a vaccine and often yells about ~half the country being fascists. Spare us, you old grinch.”
Here’s a quick sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:
Ha! I love this line. Fitting for our Hypocrite in Chief.

So says the blamer-in-chief. Is there any problem he has created that he hasn’t blamed on Republicans?

Says the man who threatens to physically beat up people he meets on the campaign trail and who disagree with him. Says the man who called a voter asking him questions a “lying dog faced pony soldier” . . .
