Biden Says Trump Supporters Are Worse than Slave-Owning Confederates [Opinion]

By

Democrats have spent half-year convincing themselves that the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion was the worst moment in American history, and on Tuesday, President Joe Biden lowered himself to equating conservative Americans to slave owners.

Biden was speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia about Democratic efforts to federalize elections and to stop states from asking people to prove who they are before they cast ballots. While speaking, he attacked voting integrity laws and compared people who no longer trust the untrustworthy battleground state election systems, such as the one in Pennsylvania, to slaveholders.

“Confederates back then never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did on Jan. 6.”

Generally, before people make outrageous claims while relying on extreme claims, they caution they aren’t engaging in hyperbole. Biden is of course the king of hyperbolic statements, half-truths and whole lies.

“The big lie is just that: a big lie,” Biden. “You don’t call facts ‘fake’ and then try to bring down the American experiment just because you’re unhappy. That’s not statesmanship, that’s selfishness. That’s not democracy, that’s the denial of the right to vote. It suppresses. It subjugates.”
