President Joe Biden posted a video to his official Twitter on Wednesday telling Democrats to “fight back against extreme MAGA Republicans” days after a North Dakota man deliberately ran over and slaughtered a teen he deemed part of a “Republican extremist group.“
Biden brags of passing the $739 billion Inflation Reduction Act, the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, and the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan before claiming “the extreme MAGA Republicans want to take it all back.”
Early Sunday morning, 41-year-old Shannon Brandt allegedly ran over 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson with his car following a political dispute in McHenry, North Dakota. After being charged on Monday with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident, Brandt admitted that his actions were politically motivated because he believed the teen was a Republican.
That attack comes only weeks after Democratic President Joe Biden targeted conservatives as a threat to America saying, “Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.” In Biden's dark, disturbing speech he categorized half the US population as “a threat to this country” and “extremists” who must be defeated.
Speaking from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Biden said, “as I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault” and placed the blame solely on his political opposition and their constituents. “MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies,” Biden said.
A week prior to Biden's “battle for the soul of the nation” speech, against a blood red backdrop in in Philadelphia, he proclaimed that conservatives and Trump supporters are “semi-fascist” while speaking to Democrats in Pennsylvania.
And on September 15, Biden said at the “United We Stand” summit, which was a theatrical event held to announce new measures to target “hate-fueled violence,” Biden said MAGA Republicans were in a “through line of hate” running back to slavery.
