(Alex Tien, Headline USA) In the wake of the recent Supreme Court leak detailing the possible overruling of Roe vs. Wade, President Joe Biden resorted to devisive rhetoric to describe “the MAGA crowd,” calling them “most extreme political organization in American history.”
The comments came during a speech Wednesday, after Biden spent most of his time touting the economy, currently on the verge of recession, by claiming he had “reduced the deficit by 350 billion this year.”
After his vicious, partisan attack, he immediately left the press conference and refused to answer any follow-up questions.
Republicans and Democrats alike were quick to condemn the president for his risky talking points.
“It’s worse than ridiculous—it is despicable and outrageous,” she said.
“When you look at the President of the United States of America calling millions of Americans essentially terrorists, people who politically oppose him or who voted against him, he’s calling them terrorists in an attempt to intimidate them into silence,” she continued.
Gabbard noted that both Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland, the country’s top law-enforcement officer, have used similar polemic when describing their political rivals in the Republican Party—while ignoring violent left-wing extremists like Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
“We know this because we’ve heard this before from both him and his attorney general,” she said.
“His AG said that anyone who holds anti-authority views will be targeted for investigation and potential prosecution by our domestic terrorist unit,” she added. “So Biden’s essentially saying that this MAGA crowd are worst than terrorists.”
Gabbard called Biden’s speech an “authoritarian assault on our freedom” and called for Americans to stand together against “this attempt to intimidate and silence anyone who holds political views that are different from what this President and his administration are furthering.”
Gabbard concluded emphatically that Biden’s word’s are “an assault on our democracy.”
