Biden's State Of The Union: Hatred and Lies

All Americans should be worried about the psychological warfare contained in President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech. It is all about hatred and lies, and YOU are the target.

Let’s look at some of the incendiary language that he used.

Within his first minute, he went directly to Hitler, mentioning in the context of President Franklin D. Roosevelt that “Hitler was on the march.” This is amplifying the Left’s propaganda line that President Donald Trump is ‘literally Hitler,’ and that all Trump supporters are fascists. That is why that line is there, right at the very start.

Seconds later he started the first of many mentions that “Freedom and democracy were under assault in the world.” That was also in the context of World War II, but Biden immediately tied that to President Trump and his supporters, saying that “freedom and democracy are under attack both at home and overseas.”

The Democratic Party of course is using the most undemocratic means to deny Americans the right to vote for the candidates of their choice, as seen in countries like Russia and Venezuela. Trying to remove Trump from the ballot and using lawfare to find him guilty of invented crimes.

Remember that Democrat leaders and the media always engage in ‘projection,’ meaning accusing their adversaries of the crimes they are committing. Just reverse what the Democrats and media are saying about President Trump and conservatives like us, and you’ll see exactly what they are in fact doing.

When Democrat party officials and the media call Trump and his supporters “Hitler,” just reverse it. How are they acting?

Biden’s speech was full of many blatant lies, knowing that the liberal media will never ‘fact check’ those. Here’s the first one.

Biden said that Trump “tells Putin, quote, do whatever the hell you want. That’s a quote.” Context matters, because President Trump got NATO to increase their defense spending because he made threats to withdraw from NATO if they didn’t spend their required share. That’s a basic negotiating tactic, and you may see examples in Trump’s book, “The art of the deal.”

Trump’s complete statement was, “I said: ‘You didn’t pay? You’re delinquent? No, I would not protect you. In fact, I would encourage them to do whatever the hell they want. You got to pay. You got to pay your bills.” Trump was indeed bullying our allies who won’t spend the required defense sums to be a NATO member. During his presidency, Trump succeeded in getting many NATO member nations to increase their defense expenditures.

Predictably, Biden’s tirade hit on January 6 too: “when insurrectionists stormed this very Capitol and placed a dagger to the throat of American democracy.” He continued, “the threat to democracy must be defended. My predecessor and some of you here seek to bury the truth about Jan. 6.”

‘Dagger to the throat of democracy’ is pure incendiary propaganda and an obvious lie, so look at who buried the truth. Why did the old Twitter immediately ban President Trump’s account? Because it had his January 6 Tweet imploring, “I am asking for everyone at the U.S. Capitol to remain peaceful. No violence! Remember, WE are the Party of Law & Order – respect the Law and our great men and women in Blue. Thank you!” That had to be covered up. And it took House Speaker Mike Johnson to release the videos of January 6 that showed the actual events of the day that differed greatly from the fabricated version of the events on that day.

Look carefully at these words from Biden. “I ask all of you, without regard to party, to join together and defend democracy. Remember your oath of office and defend against all threats foreign and domestic.” And “History is watching another assault on freedom.” Then, “My God, what freedom else would you take away?”

See what Biden’s speech is designed to do? He effectively called every American who isn’t a Biden Democrat a threat to democracy and a domestic enemy.

You should be worried.

There’s little difference between the words that Biden spoke and how tyrants in history have used language to dehumanize their opponents. Hitler, Stalin, Lenin—the list goes on. Once you dehumanize your opponents, then it’s apparently OK to treat them inhumanely.

Following the leaked Supreme Court decision on abortion, Senator Chuck Schumer screamed “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Such incendiary words may be designed to trigger crazy people to take illegal action, and indeed shortly afterwards, a man was arrested who apparently intended to assassinate Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Representative Steve Scalise paid a price as well for leftist hatred when a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire at the Congressional baseball game, greatly harming him.

Lastly, Biden finally mentioned Lincoln Riley: “an innocent young woman who was killed by an illegal, that’s right. But how many thousands of people are being killed by legals?” See what he did there? He’s excusing crime and murders by illegal immigrants by saying Americans commit murders as well.

Why does this matter so much? The State of the Union speech is watched by millions of Americans. In a campaign year, it’s a campaign ad of incalculable value. And here’s the proof.

CNN reported their own polling that “More than 6 in 10 Americans who watched President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address had a positive reaction to the speech, according to a CNN Poll conducted by SSRS, with a smaller 35% reacting very positively.” Sure, they may skew the results, but the point is clear: Millions who aren’t tuned in to conservative media accepted Biden’s speech of hatred and lies as a positive message.
