President Biden Labels MAGA Supporters as a ‘Threat to Democracy’

President Joe Biden labeled Republicans on the ballot in this year’s midterm elections as a “threat to democracy” while at a campaign event in Maryland Thursday evening. 

Touching on former President Trump and his “Make America Great Again” slogan Biden accused Republicans of wanting to send the country “backward.”

According to The Hill:

“Now you need to vote to literally save democracy again,” Biden told a large crowd at the Democratic National Committee rally in Rockville, Md., just outside of Washington, D.C. “Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice — to go backwards full of anger, violence, hate, and division. But we’ve chosen a different path forward, the future, unity, hope and optimism.”  

“We choose to build a better America,” Biden said.  

Throughout Biden’s speech, he also touched on accomplishments from his administration before circling back to Republicans. The President later attempted to separate what he labeled “MAGA Republicans” from “conservative Republicans” citing Maryland’s current Gov. Larry Hogan (R), as an example of the later. 

“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy,” Biden said as he wrapped up his remarks. “They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace, embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.” 

“This is why in this moment, those of you that love this country — Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans — we must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving America than the MAGA Republicans are destroying America,” he said.  

This is hardly the first time President Biden has attacked supporters of the former president and attempted to label them as dangers to society. In May, Biden called MAGA the “most extreme political organization in history” following the leak of a Supreme Court draft that signaled the end of Roe v. Wade.

“What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history. In recent American history,” Biden told the crowd.

On Friday, Biden’s White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre doubled down and defended the President’s comments calling Trump supporters fascists.

  1. The only real threat to democracy are the communists, calling themselves democrats and led by Brandon (sort of, probably not, probably Obama).

  2. That’s not new. Hilary called us “deplorables”. Look where is got her.
    Historically when there was a Republican majority in the past, did democracy go away? I think not. I hope Biden’s threat ticks off a lot of people so we can vote him out.

  3. Since when is wanting to Make America Great Again such a bad thing??? Unless you are a socialist/communist, which we see every day the D’s are tagging themselves as. Yes…we DO want to regress…to the days when we could buy gas and groceries without anxiety. Also regression to the Trump days was not bad at all…record economic gains! Jobs! Military confidence! A President that knew what he was doing…was transparent with the people…and who fought for our rights and liberties…and respected and encouraged our faith in the Lord God. And fought off (at the risk of assassination and family harassment), the tyrant billionaires and Deep State swamp dwellers who are for child sex trafficking, Big Pharma making a fortune, Ukraine bio-weapon labs which can hurt humanity, money laundering pits and corruption in general. MAGA is something to be proud of. We are a Republic and the MAGA people know and want this. We have confidence in our Constitution and those who wrote it knew why they wrote the things they did. They just came out of a tyranny and did not want that for us. Which is what we now have under OBiden. (He is trying to convince us that tyranny is better for all of us. Not working!)

  4. I see orange hair is back at showing her lack of education. Facists = nazis (National socialist party) = what the libtard party has come to be in the last 50 years…………………

  5. I have been in this, our country since 1941, and I have never, never had a president who is so determined to destroy our country. Just remember this saying! The thought becomes the word, and the word becomes the deed! This is the propaganda the democrat party has been trying to make us believe. Just Saying!

  6. Well, I would call Chao Bai Deng the Manchurian Candidate, an empty suit, a pathological liar… AND other things unprintable!

  7. Ms. Jean-Pierre,
    Fascist…….Hmmmm……you use that word a lot. I don’t think that word means what you think it means….

  8. The educational system in our great country has failed. I keep hearing, seeing and reading about our life great Democracy. We don’t live in a democracy. Read the U.S. Constitution. We live in a Constitutional Republic. The two systems of government are completely different

  9. This “threat to democracy” plans to help vote Democrats out of office in November, and YOU, Joe, out of office two years hence. Your leftie Congressional buddies are through in ’22, and YOU’RE out the door in ’24!
