Joe Biden was delivering one of the most divisive speeches by a president in U.S. history Thursday in Philadelphia when he was interrupted by a heckler chanting “F*ck Joe Biden!”.
In his “Soul of the Nation” speech at the Independence National Historical Park, Biden was angrily accusing Republicans of trying to “nullify 81 million votes” in 2020 when a heckler derailed his remarks with sing-song chants of “F*ck Joe Biden.”

Biden eventually resumed, railing against “extremist MAGA Republicans” posing a threat to “democracy.”
“Donald Trump and MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic,” Biden said in his prime-time speech.
“They refuse to accept the results of a free election, and they’re working right now as I speak in state after state to give power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies.”
“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards,” Biden continued. “Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”
“They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies. I will not stand by and watch the will of the American people be overturned by wild conspiracy theories,” he added.
Critics of Biden’s speech noted he spoke out of both sides of his mouth, seemingly calling for unity while at the same time calling half of the country who voted for Donald Trump “extremists.”
Smearing 74 million Americans while calling for unity is something to see. FJB.

Biden says, “We The People” but if you don’t agree with him, you’re labeled an extremist.

Biden claims the Democratic Party opposes political violence.
This is the same Democratic Party that applauded the deadly BLM riots that killed over 25 Americans and burnt black neighborhoods to the ground

What a bunch of dishonest, divisive, and gaslighting nonsense.

Biden says MAGA folks condone "political violence." Wow, demonizing the opposition. Might be "extreme”.
— Bill O'Reilly (@BillOReilly) September 2, 2022
The "extreme" MAGA agenda:
– Secure borders.
– Fair elections
– Energy independence
– Tough on crime
– Save babies
– Stop genital mutilation of kids
– Put parents first
– School choice
– Protect constitutional rights
– Put America First.
What part sounds extreme to you?

This is the second time Biden was heckled during a speech in the last week.
Last Thursday in Maryland, a heckler called Biden a “pedophile” and accused him of stealing the 2020 election.
