Biden Slams MAGA Republicans: “It’s Like Semi-Fascism”
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1928: Kellogg-Briand Pact, 60 nations agree to condemn “recourse to war for the solution of international controversies.”
“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy,” Biden said at a Democratic donor event ahead of a political rally in Maryland.
“It’s not just Trump,” he continued, “it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the — I’m going to say something: It’s like semi-fascism.”
Biden also railed against Trump during his rally speech in Rockville, Maryland, later that night.
“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security,” Biden said. “They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace … political violence. They don’t believe in democracy.”
“This is why in this moment, those of you who love this country — Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans — we must be stronger,” Biden added.
The Republican National Committee responded to Biden’s use of the term “semi-fascism,” calling the comment “despicable.”
“Despicable,” said Nathan Brand, an RNC spokesperson. “Biden forced Americans out of their jobs, transferred money from working families to Harvard lawyers, and sent our country into a recession while families can’t afford gas and groceries. Democrats don’t care about suffering Americans — they never did.”
