“We’re all called, by duty and conscience, to confront extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else. Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans: We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving American democracy than MAGA Republicans are to — to destroying American democracy. We, the people, will not let anyone or anything tear us apart. Today, there are dangers around us we cannot allow to prevail. We hear — you’ve heard it — more and more talk about violence as an acceptable political tool in this country. It’s not. It can never be an acceptable tool. So I want to say this plain and simple: There is no place for political violence in America. Period. None. Ever” – President Joe Biden (01.09.2022).
On the 1st September 2022 for the first, “Dark Brandon” or the more fierce President Biden speech in Philadelphia. I have referred to Biden as “lukewarm coffee” but this time he was finally poignant and direct with his message. A message that is needed, because with his predecessor there has been rising right-wing extremism and they became a vital part of the Republican power base. Therefore, this speech is needed.
Yes, there been push-backs and people claiming Biden is divider in chief. However, the predecessor was speaking ill of the left on the daily basis and called for locking up his enemies. He spoke bad of the Democrats and even their news channels. While he praised Fox News and other outlets.
This speech was a needed one. It is also very telling about that it wasn’t on every station. Plenty showed ordinary programming and didn’t even send it live. This shows not only the bias but also how they operate. They are willing to send former President Trump at any time, but not Biden when speaks of something vital or important.
It is just showing how fragmented the USA have become. The different realities and messaging, which is spread among the heartland. This speech will only be seen as shattering or shocking, if you haven’t followed politics for a hot minute. If this speech is bad for you or doesn’t settle well. I am afraid that’s on you. Because, violent political extremism isn’t worth having. Anyone who has some clarity should understand that.
Biden is right on with his message and it’s needed. Only fascists, supports fascism. That is also obvious. If that hurts your pride, your banners and your believes. That’s all on you and fascists or fascism has never created anything good. It has only destroyed democracies, gone after minorities and political dissidents. There is nothing good coming out of fascism. You can check history and know this.
That’s why Biden’s speech in Philadelphia was important. It is a resounding message. Hopefully it wasn’t to late. The MAGA crowds, the Republican’s who abide by this will rebuke it. However, people should be aware of the power and what that sort of politicking does. Because, nothing good comes out of it.
“Throughout our history, America has often made the greatest progress coming out of some of our darkest moments, like you’re hearing in that bullhorn. I believe we can and we must do that again, and we are. MAGA Republicans look at America and see carnage and darkness and despair. They spread fear and lies –- lies told for profit and power. But I see a very different America — an America with an unlimited future, an America that is about to take off. I hope you see it as well. Just look around” (Biden, 01.09.2022).
Sometimes the truth is just so revealing and so brutal. That the ones aspiring or living for something cannot handle it. Biden just told it like it is… if your feelings was hurt or it rocked your pride. Than you need to look into yourself. Because, who in the right minds wants to be fascists and be associated with fascism?
That’s just very telling. It has been visible all through the predecessors term. The rise of violent groups associated with the Republican party. They have all bashed in the glory of Trump. Now, Biden is telling their story and the Republican’s suddenly feels hurt. They have boosted themselves in it and played their part. Now their story is told. Their messages are being enlightened and then they push-back. It is just showing the dire reality and the what is at stake.
Biden did what needed to be done. Finally he went from “lukewarm coffee” into hot coffee and it taste good. Peace.
