In what is being hailed as “the most grotesque, incoherent and divisive speech ever given by a US President,” Joe Biden once again demonized half the nation by claiming on Wednesday that the attack on Paul Pelosi by an unhinged nudist hippie is the fault of former President Donald Trump, extreme MAGA Republicans, and anyone who would dare question how the guy in the basement got the most votes of any presidential candidate in the history of the United States of America.
Less than a week from the all-important midterm elections, President Biden’s speech set the internet on fire as user after user torched the tone-deaf leader on Twitter, with Fox News host Jimmy Failla stating, “That Biden speech REALLY moved the needle … into his donors arms.”
“This Presidency is over,” he declared.
That Biden speech REALLY moved the needle … into his donors arms. This Presidency is over.

From word one, Biden set his inflammatory tone.
“Just a few days ago, a little before 2:30 a.m. in the morning, a man smashed the back windows and broke into the home of the speaker of the House of Representatives, the third-highest-ranking official in America,” he began. “He carried in his backpack zip ties, duct tape, rope and a hammer.”
The president then went on to describe the bizarre attack on Paul Pelosi by David DePape and noted the intruder “entered the home asking: ‘Where’s Nancy? Where’s Nancy?'”
“Those are the very same words used by the mob when they stormed the United States Capitol on January the 6th, when they broke windows, kicked in the doors, brutally attacked law enforcement, roamed the corridors hunting for officials and erected gallows to hang the former vice president, Mike Pence,” Biden stated.
“It was an enraged mob that had been whipped up into a frenzy by a president repeating over and over again the Big Lie, that the election of 2020 had been stolen,” he continued. “It’s a lie that fueled the dangerous rise in political violence and voter intimidation over the past two years.”
Rather than discuss the surge in violent crime felt by everyday Americans, or the energy crisis, or inflation, or the crisis at the border, or looming food shortages — just days away from the elections that will undoubtedly shape the future of this nation — President Biden, in a speech unironically titled “Preserving and Protecting Our Democracy,” wanted to talk about the 2020 elections and “lies repeated over and over” that allegedly led to violence against those who “stand up for our democracy.”
“Even before January the 6th, we saw election officials and election workers in a number of states subject to menacing calls, physical threats, even threats to their very lives,” he said. “In Georgia, for example, the Republican secretary of state and his family were subjected to death threats because he refused to break the law and give in to the defeated president’s demand: Just find him 11,780 votes. Just find me 11,780 votes,” he continued.
“Election workers, like Shaye Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, were harassed and threatened just because they had the courage to do their job and stand up for the truth, to stand up for our democracy,” Biden said. “This institution, this intimidation, this violence against Democrats, Republicans and nonpartisan officials just doing their jobs, are the consequence of lies told for power and profit, lies of conspiracy and malice, lies repeated over and over to generate a cycle of anger, hate, vitriol and even violence.”
“In this moment, we have to confront those lies with the truth,” the president railed. “The very future of our nation depends on it.”
“A successful President would be describing his achievements six days out,” noted a.m. radio talk show host Mark Davis. “Instead we get tonight’s bizarre speech. They know what’s coming. This smear, which targets scores of candidates and millions of voters, is the stench of desperation.”

Indeed, while decrying “voter intimidation” — a reference, one assumes, to efforts by some to monitor the ballot drop boxes in various locations — it seemed as though Biden was trying to literally frighten people into voting for Democrats.
“My fellow Americans, we’re facing a defining moment, an inflection point,” he stated. “We must with one overwhelming unified voice speak as a country and say there’s no place, no place for voter intimidation or political violence in America. Whether it’s directed at Democrats or Republicans. No place, period. No place ever.”
“I speak today near Capitol Hill, near the U.S. Capitol, the citadel of our democracy,” he continued. “I know there’s a lot at stake in these midterm elections, from our economy, to the safety of our streets, to our personal freedoms, to the future of health care and Social Security, Medicare. It’s all important. But we’ll have our differences, we’ll have our difference of opinion. And that’s what it’s supposed to be.
“But there’s something else at stake,” he proclaimed, “democracy itself.”
“I’m not the only one who sees it,” Biden claimed. “Recent polls have shown an overwhelming majority of Americans believe our democracy is at risk, that our democracy is under threat. They too see that democracy is on the ballot this year, and they’re deeply concerned about it.”
Of course, he failed to mention how many of those Americans vote Republican and believe the threat is coming from Biden’s tyrannical administration.
“This speech is a total disgrace,” tweeted Buck Sexton. “Don’t vote on policies, the senile president says, vote knowing that ‘our democracy is in peril.'”
“Democrats failed utterly in every way so now they try absurd, cheap emotional manipulation,” he wrote. “Pathetic.”

And Biden wasn’t done dividing.
In case anyone missed the point he was trying to make, the President made his disgust for Trump and his supporters crystal clear:
You know, American democracy is under attack because the defeated former president of the United States refused to accept the results of the 2020 election. If he refuses to accept the will of the people, if he refuses to accept the fact that he lost, he’s abused his power and put the loyalty to himself before loyalty to the Constitution. And he’s made a big lie an article of faith in the MAGA Republican Party, the minority of that party.
The great irony about the 2020 election is that it’s the most attacked election in our history. And, yet, there’s no election in our history that we can be more certain of its results. Every legal challenge that could have been brought was brought. Every recount that could have been undertaken was undertaken. Every recount confirmed the results. Wherever fact or evidence had been demanded, the Big Lie has been proven to be just that, a big lie. Every single time.
Yet now extreme MAGA Republicans aim to question not only the legitimacy of past elections, but elections being held now and into the future. The extreme MAGA element of the Republican Party, which is a minority of that party, as I said earlier, but it’s its driving force. It’s trying to succeed where they failed in 2020, to suppress the right of voters and subvert the electoral system itself. That means denying your right to vote and deciding whether your vote even counts.
Instead of waiting until an election is over, they’re starting well before it. They’re starting now. They’ve emboldened violence and intimidation of voters and election officials. It’s estimated that there are more than 300 election deniers on the ballot all across America this year. We can’t ignore the impact this is having on our country. It’s damaging, it’s corrosive and it’s destructive.
And I want to be very clear, this is not about me, it’s about all of us. It’s about what makes America America. It’s about the durability of our democracy. For democracies are more than a form of government. They’re a way of being, a way of seeing the world, a way that defines who we are, what we believe, why we do what we do. Democracy is simply that fundamental.
“Tonight’s #bidenspeech was the 3rd time this President used a primetime speaking slot to attack fellow Americans,” said one user on Twitter. “This speech tonight is what you get when you’ve failed America and have nothing to stand on, so you resort to fear mongering and finger pointing.”
Fox News’s Tucker Carlson was even more direct.
Noting that the left is facing a Red tsunami next week, Carlson declared, “Democrats failed. Conclusively. No group in American history has done a worse job running this country than the neo-liberals currently in charge.
“They’re vicious, they’re intolerant, and they are utterly corrupt,” he stated. “But above all, they are incompetent.”
“In less than two years, it is not an overstatement to say, they have run this country into the ground, wrecking our economy, desecrating our military, and opening the borders to the United States to more than five million lawbreakers. The destruction they have wrought is so profound, it’s hard to describe.”
Carlson noted that Biden chose Union Station for the location of his speech and stated, “Standing at this monument to his own failures, Biden proceeded to do what he now so commonly does: bark at the rest of us for our moral failures. The guy who showered with his daughter is telling you you’re a bad person.”
Mainstream media was, of course, quick to clap back at Carlson’s observations in an attempt to amplify Biden’s divisive message.
According to Mediaite, Biden’s “remarks” about “the extreme MAGA element of the Republican Party” are “not controversial,” and Tucker Carlson is “unhinged” for suggesting otherwise.
“But facts be damned,” the op-ed by Michael Luciano stated., “Carlson, who himself has suggested the 2020 was stolen, called Biden’s obvious remarks ‘weird.'”
“Well, that’s very weird if you think about it,” said Carlson. “So, here we are less than a week before the Democratic Party is expected to suffer overwhelming losses in the midterm elections, and here you have the leader party – Joe Biden – commanding you not to complain about the election results. Why is that?”
And, of course, Carlson isn’t the only one with questions.
“What is going on here?” asked one Twitter user. “Instead of giving a speech on policy, Biden gives a speech that it can take a few days after the election to get the results, that counting takes time. A few days needed so they can find out the final result / fix it? Bizarre speech.”

In all, said one pastor, Biden deserves a trophy.
“The award 4 the most grotesque, incoherent and divisive speech ever given by a US President goes to…..drum roll please…….. ” he tweeted, “Joe Biden.”

Below, find a sample of still more reactions to Biden’s shocking speech:
SO … @JoeBiden is trying to use the attack on Paul Pelosi by a crazed illegal alien to blame Republicans for political violence via January 6. His closing argument in 2022 is about 2020. (And you thought *Trump* couldn't get over it.)
Democrats are in deep trouble on Tuesday.
