White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre [KJP] told the American people during a Wednesday press conference that Joe Biden sees Trump supporters as an “extreme threat to democracy.“
“The president thinks there’s an extremist threat to our democracy. The president has been clear as he can be on that particular piece when we talk about our democracy, when we talk about our freedoms,” Jean-Pierre said. “The way he sees it is the MAGA Republicans are the most energized part of the Republican party. This is an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights.”
Continuing, the press secretary laughably said, “They [MAGA Republicans] just don’t respect the rule of law. You’ve heard that from the president and they are pursuing an agenda that takes away people’s rights, which is what the president said last week, you all heard him. This is what the president said yesterday and that’s what he’s going to continue to say. The president is not going to shy away to call out what he clearly sees is happening in this country. Again, MAGA Republicans are this extreme part of their party and that is just facts.”
Later during the Wednesday press conference, Jean-Pierre named several GOP politicians and claimed they publicly support violence.
Each instance KJP referred to was either extremely exaggerated or outright false.
The Democrat Party is consistently choosing to promote the narrative that Republican voters and politicians are the enemy of Democrat voters as Joe Biden also called GOP voters “semi-fascists” last week.
The current chair of the Democratic National Committee Jaime Harrison defended the comments on CBS News this week.
The clearly divisive and hypocritical rhetoric was slammed online.
Breitbart podcast host Joel Pollack called on Jean-Pierre to “resign” for the “inflammatory message.”
Newsbusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck noted, “The White House thinks Republicans are terrorists. Terrifying.”
The Media Research Center sarcastically asked, “Does Joe Biden recognize the rule of law for his son, Hunter?”
“Way to win the goodwill of people who disagree with you, Karine,” the Daily Caller wrote.
