President Biden's Speech on Sept 1, marked a change in the approach to Trump and his extremists ideals.
Not so coincidentally this speech also marks the end of primary and special election season. It also portends the beginning of campaign season for the November Elections
Biden made many points that posters here have been making for years about Trump and MAGA. He started with the following.
But first, we must be honest with each other and with ourselves.
Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal.
Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.
Now, I want to be very clear — (applause) — very clear up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology.
I know because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans.
But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.
These are hard things.
The rest of the speech expanded on this idea while also tying back to Biden's campaign and the democrat's campaign?
The soul of America is defined by the sacred proposition that all are created equal in the image of God. That all are entitled to be treated with decency, dignity, and respect. That all deserve justice and a shot at lives of prosperity and consequence. And that democracy — democracy must be defended, for democracy makes all these things possible. (Applause.) Folks, and it’s up to us.
Democracy begins and will be preserved in we, the people’s, habits of heart, in our character: optimism that is tested
yet endures, courage that digs deep when we need it, empathy that fuels democracy, the willingness to see each other not as enemies but as fellow Americans.
Was it too over the top?
Too Limited in it's application?
Do you think that MAGA can be reigned in or needs to be?
