Biden Unity Speech: Like the Soviet Union and Hitler Had a Baby
Joe Biden delivered a primetime speech on Thursday night in order to unify the country. And it was really… something. If you haven’t seen the pictures of the address all over the internet yet, go track them down. They’re illuminating. Biden spoke in front of a blood-red backdrop while flanked by US Marines in full dress uniform, in what was obviously a partisan political speech. So much for unity.
The optics were so bad that the hashtag #PedoHitler was trending on Twitter before the speech was over. Dave Portnoy of Barstool Sports summed up the look of Biden’s speech succinctly: “Seriously who gives a speech warning people about how dangerous Republicans are to Democracy while having a background that looks like the Soviet Union and Hitler had a baby?”
The speech was so awful – both in its contents and its presentation – that not even the mainstream media could cover for Biden. Here’s a sampling of what some partisan mainstream media nerds had to say about the leader of their own political party.
CNN host Brianna Keilar said, “Whatever you think of this speech the military is supposed to be apolitical. Positioning Marines in uniform behind President Biden for a political speech flies in the face of that. It’s wrong when Democrats do it. It’s wrong when Republicans do it.”
The Chief National Affairs Correspondent for CNN, Jeff Zeleny, stated, “There’s nothing unusual or wrong with a President delivering a political speech — it’s inherent in the job description — but doing it against a backdrop of two Marines standing at attention and the Marine Band is a break with White House traditions.”
ABC News producer Jeffrey Cook said, “The Marines behind Biden was weird. If Trump did that, every Dem operative I follow would be freaking the **** out.”
And the Senior White House Correspondent for CBS News, Ed O’Keefe, added, “Like or loathe what he said tonight, it should be noted: The president spoke tonight on the grounds of a national park, flanked by US Marines, and took direct, specific aim at his predecessor and members of the Republican Party. Another thing we don’t see every day.”
We don’t see it every day? How about, we haven’t seen this ever happen in the entire history of the United States? No White House occupant (I flat-out refuse to call Joe Biden “president”) has ever before declared their political opposition to be a terrorist threat to national security, while flanked by members of the military. As Tucker Carlson noted, this would be scary if the Biden regime wasn’t staffed by such a bunch of complete and utter buffoons.
As CNN’s Zeleny said, this is a major break with White House traditions. Donald Trump gave speeches with the military behind him all the time. But those speeches were never political, and they were always delivered on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, or Veteran’s Day. Those speeches were about the military, its traditions in our country, and honoring those who serve. Trump never stood up in front of the military and gave a speech demonizing anyone, let alone declaring his political opponents to be terrorists.
It definitely sends a message that Biden delivered a divisive political speech in front of Nazi imagery and with the military in the background: We plan to hurt you, especially if you don’t vote the way we want you to in the November midterms.
CNN’s Keilar was also right. (Never thought I’d seen the day when I’m agreeing with hosts from CNN and CBS News.) You don’t get to use the military for political speeches. The military is supposed to serve all Americans and is supposed to be non-partisan. The woke “military” under Biden has been purging the sorts of Americans who are proud of our country, while recruiting transgender weirdos and people who are more worried about pronouns and China.
There’s a reason for that. Patriotic American soldiers are unlikely to open fire on American civilians if Joe Biden tells them to. But does anyone think that a military that has been remade in the image of the modern Democrat Party would hesitate for a second to shoot you? Biden should apologize for that abomination of a speech, and then his staff should hide him in the basement for a few months until this blows over.
