Just shy of one year in office, and Biden apparently can’t resist engaging in a bit more disunity to round out his illustrious first year as president.
And what better way to generate disunity than to deliver a highly divisive speech on January 6, 2022, which was heavy on melodrama and short on facts?
After all, just consider part of Biden’s January 6 speech below, where he claims that the events of January 6 represent “the gravest of threats” to the nation.
“Our Constitution faced the gravest of threats … Outnumbered in the face of a brutal attack, the Capitol Police, the D.C. Metropolitan Police, the National Guard and brave law enforcement officials saved the rule of law.” [Source: Fox News]
It’s fairly remarkable that Biden felt compelled to bring up the police, considering that he spent much of his presidential campaign disavowing the supposed value of law enforcement officers.
Furthermore, calling the events of January 6 “the gravest threat” to face democracy is a bit of a stretch. After all, the Democrats could end up succeeding in their efforts to pack the Supreme Court, which would really represent one of “the gravest threats” to affect the nation.
Nonetheless, Biden continues to bloviate about democracy, as if his administration had any real respect for liberty or freedom.
“Our democracy held. We the people endured. We the people prevailed.” [Source: Fox News]
All of the sudden it’s “we the people,” huh? The question is, which group of people is Biden referring to? Certainly not conservatives, and definitely not supporters of Trump.
And the antipathy towards supporters of Trump is particularly clear when Biden all but directly mentions him.
“For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election. He tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob reached the Capitol … But they failed … [Americans] must make sure this never, never happens again.” [Source: Fox News]
So, all of the sudden Trump singlehandedly led a small group of protestors to Capitol Hill to overturn the results of the election?
Did Biden miss the part where Trump urged his supporters to protest peacefully, never violently? Did Biden also miss the part where none other than Pelosi failed to ensure a sufficient number of law enforcement personnel present, which remains suspicious to this day?
Biden may have missed a whole lot, though one thing he hasn’t missed is the illuminating power of the truth. Shame his administration is so blind to it.
The blindless, however, did not preclude Biden from astonishingly referencing the Bible in his January 6 commentary.
“The Bible tells us that we shall know the truth, and the truth shall make us free. We shall know the truth …
Well here is the God’s truth of Jan. 6, 2021 … Go back to that day. What do you see? Rioters rampaging, waving, for the first time inside the Capitol, Confederate flags that symbolize the cause to destroy America – to rip us apart. Even during the Civil War, that never happened. But it happened here, in 2021.” [Source: Fox News]
So, in other words, Biden is claiming that January 6 was effectively worse than the Civil War.
Talk about hyperbole …
Needless to say, Trump was remarkably unimpressed with Biden’s speech, starting with the current president’s apparent dependence on the former president to stay relevant.
Which Trump is explicitly clear about in his own remarks.
“[Biden] used my name today to try to further divide America … This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed.” [Source: Fox News]
Fortunately, however, Trump has always told it like it is, which means that he could easily chat on about the myriad failures associated with the Biden administration.
“Our Country no longer has Borders, has totally and completely lost control of Covid (record numbers!), is no longer Energy Independent, Inflation is rampant, our Military is in chaos, and our exit, or surrender, from Afghanistan was perhaps the most embarrassing day in the long and distinguished history of the United States—and so much more.” [Source: Fox News]
One can only hope that the above issues may be rectified in the impending 2022 midterm elections …
