Fresh off the desecration of Independence Hall in arguably the most divisive speech an American president has ever given, President Joe Biden’s single-minded focus on maintaining control of Congress following the midterms led to the politicization of his Sept. 11 memorial address.
It wasn’t enough for Biden to botch the withdrawal from Afghanistan a year prior with his politically motivated deadline of the 20th anniversary of the most horrific terrorist attack the nation has ever faced. No, as part of a wreath-laying ceremony at the Pentagon memorial where the third of four hijacked planes was crashed resulting in the death of nearly 3,000 people, the president pumped in his continued rhetoric on “democracy.”
Flanked by chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Biden recounted the events of that September morning 21 years ago before transitioning to an outlook on the road ahead and what “we owe” the victims.
“It’s not enough to gather and remember each September 11th those we lost more than two decades ago,” he said as rain swept over Washington, D.C. “Because on this day, it is not about the past, it’s about the future.”
“We have an obligation, a duty, a responsibility to defend, preserve and protect our democracy. The very democracy that defends the right to freedom that those terrorists on 9/11 sought to bury in the burning fire and smoke and ash,” Biden argued. “And that takes a commitment on the part of all of us.”
In a flagrant display of hypocrisy, the president who has been treating large swaths of the nation’s population as a “threat to democracy” critiqued those who were concerned about Islamic extremism that fueled the terrorism against the United States. “To me, that’s the greatest lesson of Sept. 11. Not that we will never again face a setback, but that in a moment of great unity we also had to face down the worst impulses, fear, violence, recrimination directed against Muslim Americans, as well as Americans of Middle Eastern and South Asian heritage.”
Meanwhile, the only unifying that Biden has been doing since promising to be the “president of all Americans” on the campaign trail has been unifying the radical left against those who wish to see the Constitution upheld as it was written by the founders.

“American democracy depends on the habits of the heart of we the people,” Biden went on. “It’s not enough to stand up for democracy once a year, or every now and then–something we have to do every single day.”
“So this is a day not only to remember, but a day of renewal and resolve for each and every American. And our devotion to this country–to the principles it embodies–to our democracy–that is who we owe those remembered today,” the president contended as he drew to a close. “That is what we owe one another. And that is what we owe future generations of Americans to come.”
Forced unity is not unity.

“More united,” as this President’s consistent rhetoric confirms, means “everyone needs to step in line and follow the groupthink, or be castigated and marginalized for refusing to do so.

After he has spent weeks demonizing half the Country – calling us a threat to democracy.

You can’t call half of the Americans a threat to the United States and expect everyone to unite when you yourself won’t, seriously words matter so quit lying
