President Joe Biden’s “inspirational” Labor Day speech to unite the country on a holiday chastised “not every Republican” but definitely “MAGA” Republicans. Speaking in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Biden stated:
“I want to be very clear up front, not every Republican is a MAGA Republican. Not every Republican embraces that extreme ideology…I know because I’ve been able to work with mainstream Republicans in my whole career.”
Biden continued, “But the extreme MAGA Republicans in Congress have chosen to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate and division.”
Biden specifically mentioned the state’s Republican Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, who is currently up for reelection, just months before elections will be held.
“Extreme MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and our economic security. They embrace political violence,” Biden said. “Sen. Johnson said it was a by and large a peaceful protest.”
“Have you seen the video of what happened that day? Listened to the stories of the members from both parties of Congress and the jeopardy they were put in? Cops attacked and assaulted, speared with flag poles, sprayed with mace, stomped down, dragged, brutalized.”
Biden also went after the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), saying: “Read the Republican campaign plan, the Senate campaign they put out this year. Sen. Rick Scott of Florida heads up that committee,” he added. “They want to require Congress to vote on the future of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid every five years.”
An NRSC Spokesperson responded to Biden’s remarks, telling the Daily Caller: “Joe Biden is historically unpopular and can’t defend his agenda of record inflation, higher taxes on the middle class, skyrocketing crime rates and an ongoing border crisis. Republicans across the country are presenting a clear and common-sense alternative to Biden’s and the Democrats’ radical agenda and we’ll have big wins because of it.”
