Biden’s paranoid presidency delivers divisiveness to Americans, not unity

The Left’s vision for America has grown increasingly dark. Its embrace of identity politics has become a drive for divisiveness, vilifying large swathes American citizens for political purposes.  

The most recent examples of this came last week when President Joe Biden labeled tens of millions of his own constituents — Americans who oppose his far-left policies — as “semi-fascists.” Days later in Philadelphia, he unleashed one of the most divisive speeches a sitting president has ever delivered. 

His rhetoric was as bad as the optics of this prime-time address. Biden, bottom-lit in scarlet, looked like Dante’s character as he clenched his fists while insisting that he was fighting for the soul of America. But his angry, hectoring screed showed he’s fighting on the wrong side.  

Not that anyone familiar with Biden’s career should be surprised. This is the man who said Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan wanted to put Black Americans “back in chains,” who discharged soldiers for not getting the COVID-19 vaccine and tried to force law-abiding civilians out of a job, who conspired with Orwellian technology corporations to censor dissent, engineered an international humiliation in Afghanistan, created a deadly border crisis, spawned historic inflation, and sicced the FBI on his political opponents and parents who protested failing school boards. 

The common thread running through all of these outrages is divisiveness — something that runs counter to our country’s traditional motto: e pluribus unum (“out of many, one”). Yet the Left would have us believe that it’s the Critics of these outrages, not the authors of them, who are “threats to the republic?” 


The American people are the true heart of our country. Families whose schools were shut down, whose communities are racked by violence, whose children are being sexually abused in their classrooms. These families were already paying more for fuel, food, and rent, and now they are paying off the student loans of White House aides, lawyers, and professors.   

Biden has been promising results for two years, and the mainstream media has repeatedly assured us that better days lie ahead. Yet so far, he has produced a recession, rampant inflation, violent emergencies foreign and domestic, and repeated assaults on the Constitution he swore to defend. He has failed to fulfill his promise to be The Great Uniter. Instead, he has created deeper and more bitter division. 

If anyone is a danger to the soul of this nation and what America represents in the story of human history, it’s Biden and his far-left allies.  

It is a fact that the American people are aware of. It is evident in polls. 

Yet Biden’s speech in Philadelphia made very clear that he has every intention of ramming his deeply unpopular agenda — for our government, our economy, our energy, our schools, our border, our security, and his crime wave — down Americans’ throats unless and until he is stopped.  

Conservatives must fight back — not simply by attacking the woke, Marxist Left, but by engaging the millions of hard-working families being left behind by their self-serving, elitist agenda and helping them make their voices heard. It’s not enough to express our displeasure over the Biden-led lurch to the left; we must build a coalition and agenda to turn our nation around.  

On the economy, education, immigration, Big Tech, the right to life, China, crime, opioids, and the crisis of the American family — conservatives cannot be cowed by Biden’s divisive partisanship. It must inspire us to rise above it and help the nation do the same. We must do this together, as we have done it so successfully in the past.
