It’s nothing new. Ever since 2016, calling Republicans foul names has been very much in style. Sometimes, however, the right claps back.
On Wednesday night, however, the Commander in Chief put his foot in his mouth again. The way Fox News host Tucker Carlson put it, he “lost all sense of proportion and restraint.” Biden went as far as to directly label his political opponents “NAZIS.” That’s the behavior of an indoctrinated gender studies major in college, not a 79-year-old leader of the free world. Here’s how Tucker responded.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Fascists, that’s what the other side says Joe Biden is, an American president comparing tens of millions of his own people to the moral monsters we shot and bombed and later hung from the gallows in World War II,” Carlson said, noting remarks Biden made Aug. 25. “The children and grandchildren of Americans who died fighting the Nazis are now themselves Nazis, says Joe Biden, because they vote Republican. It is hard to believe that any U.S. president would say something like that in private. But Joe Biden just did, and then a few hours later at a high school gym he said it again.”
Carlson played a clip of Biden proclaiming that “MAGA Republicans” were a “threat to democracy.”
“It was all so crazy and over-the-top, yes, extreme, you could not believe the White House press office would try to defend it. Would’ve been better to announce that Biden must’ve had a stroke, apologize, and then move on,” Carlson said. “The White House seemed completely unashamed with what he said. Biden’s history-making publicist, the single dumbest person ever to hold that job, explained that her boss had spoken intentionally and with precision. He ‘called it what it is,’ meaning Joe Biden called Republicans what they are. They are Nazis, he said so, next question.”
Biden’s rhetoric has escalated since the Aug. 8 FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, the Florida estate owned by Trump, as part of an investigation into documents allegedly removed from the White House when Trump left office in January 2021. Many Republicans denounced the raid as an “abuse of power” by the Biden administration.
Carlson continued, “Not all of these are Joe Biden’s fault, he had a lot of help over decades, but a lot of this is Joe Biden’s fault and he can’t admit it, just as he can’t face the prospect of his eternal future as his idiot birthday approaches, so he externalizes it,” adding, “He yells at you, not himself, you are the problem. You are the reason things are broken. Your racism, your transphobia, your minivan, it’s your fault. You stood in the way of progress. You are a Nazi. We declare war on you.”
Biden’s approval rating is 43%. 53% of Americans disapprove of our president. That 43 is even up significantly from the 37 it hit in July. Will a stunt like this affect his approval? Probably not because the mainstream media does everything in their power to cover his back and paint Trump as a villain. It’s time to campaign hard for November and for 2024.
