Biden Continues To Prove He Is The Divider In Chief…

(FreedomWire.org) – President Biden will deliver a prime-time address Thursday on the fight for democracy in America and “the continued battle for the soul of the nation,” a White House official said Monday, an address that is likely to confirm his growing rhetorical emphasis on the anti-democratic forces he sees as capturing much of the Republican Party.

Biden is scheduled to deliver the GOP-bashing speech outside the Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia.

“He will make clear who is fighting for those rights, fighting for those freedoms, and fighting for our democracy,” the official said, adding that Biden will also tout what he sees as progress under his administration within the last two years.

The president’s visit to his native Pennsylvania for the prime-time speech will be his third visit to the battleground state in a week.

Biden, who has been ramping up travel ahead of November’s midterm elections, is set to make a speech on crime and gun safety in Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday. He will also attend a Labor Day parade in Pittsburgh next Monday.

His scheduled prime-time address will come exactly a week after he slammed MAGA philosophy as “semi-fascism” at a DNC rally in Maryland.

“We’re seeing now either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA agenda,” Biden told the crowd at a high school in Rockville.

“It’s not just Trump … It’s almost semi-fascism.”

Biden used the rally to urge Americans to turn out to the polls in November to fight off “extreme” Trump supporters.

The Republican National Committee criticized the president’s recent jabs at the GOP.

“Biden has pitted neighbors against each other, labeled half of Americans as fascist, and tarnished any idea of his promise of ‘unity.’ Families are left with a recession, high gas prices, and a nation on the wrong track,” RNC spokesperson Emma Vaughn said in a statement.

Thursday’s address, one of only a few Biden has given in prime time since entering the White House over a year and a half ago, is not being billed as a political speech. Additionally, the president may not repeat his stinging attacks on Trump and his legions of loyalists in the GOP.

However, the theme of working to protect the nation’s democracy and rule of law has been a common one for Biden dating back to the launch of his successful presidential campaign more than three years ago. He repeatedly noted that viewing the controversial and violent protests by White supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 motivated him to make a third White House bid.

The president’s choice of Philadelphia as the setting for his address comes as no surprise. Biden, in May 2019, held the first major rally of his successful presidential campaign in the city, which is located halfway between his native Scranton, Pennsylvania and his longtime hometown of Wilmington, Delaware.

Pennsylvania, long a crucial general election swing state, is home this cycle to crucial gubernatorial, Senate, and House showdowns.

The visits come as Biden’s poll numbers continue to rebound after sinking deep into negative territory over the past year, fueled in part by rocketing gas prices and record inflation. With prices at the pump continuing to fall, inflation slightly easing, and with a slew of recent legislative successes, the president’s approval ratings — while still well underwater — have edged up over the past month and a half.
