During President Donald Trump’s presidency, the Left repeatedly assured Americans that Trump was simply intolerable — more unbearable than every other Republican — due to his rudeness, his crassness and his divisiveness.

For four years, the President’s Twitter account inspired outrage and hurt feelings amongst Democrats. We were supposed to believe he was history’s worst president because he called reporters “crazy” and “wacko” and politicians “losers.” Many even linked his rhetoric to actual violence.

If Democrats truly felt this jarred by the rhetoric of the former president, where is their outrage against President Joe Biden?

The president’s latest speech, in front of a red-lit Independence Hall, was laced with divisive hyperbole, angry affronts, and made Trump’s harshest words sound urbane by comparison.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,” exclaimed an angry Biden. “[T]here is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”

His indignant lecture to, what turns out to be the majority of Americans, was chock-full of demonizing accusations juxtaposed with ironic calls for unity.

“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.” They subvert democracy.

“They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.” They “look at America and see carnage and darkness and despair. They spread fear and lies — lies told for profit and power.”

Biden insists he doesn’t mean all Republicans — we should assume he’s thinking of the Liz Cheneys and Adam Kinzingers of the world.

But his ambiguous language is left to interpretation.

They are the root source of all that is evil and broken in America. They are the rot at our core.

They doesn’t mean the media or the political elite. It doesn’t even mean Republican leadership.

They signifies us, the everyday American that disagrees with President Biden and where he is leading our country.

The President is taking the fight straight to We the People.

This is nothing new for Biden. Last year, his patience was “wearing thin” with unvaccinated Americans. Earlier this year, he dubbed “the MAGA crowd” the “most extreme political organization.”

Ignore his silver-tongued cries for unity, his clichéd claim that he’s not the president of red states or blue states, but of … ‘oh you know the thing.’ Biden hates his political enemies. He hates us.

Now that half of Americans are the bad guys, it seems that incendiary rhetoric has suddenly become perfectly acceptable. The same Left that could never forgive Trump for his unpardonable sin of rude tweets, praised Biden’s indignant speech and particularly loved the maligning comments. The same Left called the irritated rant “inspiring,” “optimistic” and even “patriotic.”

Trump’s “rude words” were almost always directed at the political elite. Biden’s are directed at half of the American people. Trump may have called Hillary Clinton “crooked” and Joe “sleepy,” but Biden calls average Americans “semi-fascist” and “anti-American.”
