President Biden doubled down on his regime’s authoritarian rhetoric during a speech in front of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall, the site where the Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. Biden accused Donald Trump and “MAGA Republicans” of being an existential threat to U.S. “democracy” during a primetime address on Thursday night. The speech followed days of escalating rhetoric against “MAGA Republicans” from the Biden regime.
“This is where the United States Constitution was written and debated,” Biden said Thursday in front of an ominous red backdrop. “This is where we set in motion the most extraordinary experiment of self government the world has ever known.”
“But as I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault,” he continued. “We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise. So, tonight, I’ve come to this place where it all began, to speak as plainly as I can to the nation about the threats we face, about the power we have in our hands to meet these threats and about the incredible future that lies in front of us if only we choose it,” he continued.
“Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic,” Biden went on to say. “They refuse to accept the results of a free election, and they’re working right now as I speak in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies.”

The Biden regime billed the speech as crystallizing the “battle for the soul of the nation,” though they claim the partisan speech was not meant to be political. Biden condemned “talk about violence as an acceptable political tool, adding, “I want to say this plain and simple, there is no place for political violence in America.”
Ironically, Biden threatened to use military jets against gun owning Americans just two days prior.
The president — “elected” by the party who never accepted Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 — has attacked Congressional Republicans for questioning the widespread election irregularities that led to Biden’s seat in the White House. He and his regime have accused “MAGA Republicans” of attacking U.S. “democracy” while falsely accusing them of being at odds with a majority of Americans.
Earlier in the day, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that Americans in opposition to the majority are extremists. “You know, when you ask me about the MAGA agenda, especially as it relates to Congress, relates to elected officials, it is one of the most extreme agendas that we have seen… it is the extreme part of the Republican Party,” Jean-Pierre said. She further claimed they “are threatening political violence and they are attacking our democracy.”
“When you are not with what majority of Americans are, then you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking,” she continued. A recent Reuters poll had Joe Biden’s approval rating at 38%, far from majority support.

The Biden regime is expected to continue its divisive rhetoric in the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections.
