Pretty in pink: CNN lightened ‘demonic blood-red’ background of Biden’s furious anti-MAGA speech

CNN is being slammed after the network demonstrated that it has gone back to its propagandist leftist roots by gradually softening the hellish red backdrop of President Biden’s totalitarian “Soul of the Nation” speech to a less demonic pink.

The adjustment occurred mid-broadcast of the Thursday speech in Philadelphia where Biden called MAGA Republicans a threat to democracy. It transitioned around 8:15 p.m. slowly from blood-red to a gentler pink color. A shift that viewers noticed despite the slow adjustment.

The change appeared to only take place on CNN. The hellscape stayed in place on C-SPAN, CBS, AND MSNBC.

“CNN appears to have tweaked the video of Biden’s speech from demonic red to Pepto-Bismol pink,” former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted. “Very helpful, as we needed a lot of Pepto-Bismol to get through this!”

CNN lamely blamed the shift in color on a glitch in their broadcast, according to the New York Post.

The uproar concerning the adjustment of Biden’s background follows a journalistic bloodbath over at CNN where a number of high-profile pundits have been fired including Brian Stelter and John Harwood. Staffers fear a very real purge as the network attempts to recraft its image as an actual non-partisan news network. The Biden speech incident did not help that effort.

Biden railed against former President Trump in the speech over the claim that the 2020 election was stolen. Reminiscent of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s gaffe calling Trump supporters “deplorables,” he tore into those who support the former president as well. He called MAGA Republicans an “extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

The president stood before a dark red backdrop with Marines flanking him in the background in a brazenly staged warning to conservatives. Later, her would unbelievably go on to insist that was not what he meant or said. Biden was compared to the Nazis, Russian communists, Stalin, the evil emperor from Star Wars, and even the authoritarian chancellor from “V for Vendetta” following the speech.

“I don’t consider any Trump supporters a threat to the country,” Biden told Fox News Friday. “I do think anyone who calls for the use of violence, refuses to acknowledge an election … changing the way you count votes, that is a threat to democracy.”

But if you listen to what Biden actually said, that’s exactly what he put forth.

“We must be honest with each other and with ourselves,” Biden declared. “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.”

“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution,” he continued. “They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak in state after state, to give the power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election-deniers to undermine democracy itself.”

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden explosively claimed.

“MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger, they thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies,” the president accused.

Hecklers were in attendance at the inciteful speech that chanted “F*** Joe Biden!” and “Let’s Go Brandon!” Because the speech was so divisive and politically motivated this close to the midterm elections, most of the major networks did not air it. CNN and MSNBC chose to televise it.

In October of 2020, Biden infamously stated, “Instead of treating each other’s party as the opposition, we treat them as the enemy. This must end!” But that is exactly what he is doing and the divisiveness created by the speech is off the charts.

He also tweeted in November of 2020, “To make progress, we have to stop treating our opponents as enemies. We are not enemies.”

“Tonight, Joe Biden vilified millions of Americans in a divisive & angry speech that was detached from the reality of his political failures. He isn’t actually interested in restoring the soul of the nation, he’s only interested pitting his fellow Americans against one another,” Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted, voicing the sentiments of millions of Americans following the speech.

Former President Trump slammed Biden for the speech on Truth Social: “Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn’t want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn’t, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America! If you look at the words and meaning of the awkward and angry Biden speech tonight, he threatened America, including with the possible use of military force. He must be insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!”
