Biden speaks of violence against an opponent, defined as “semi-facist” by the White House

President Joe Biden has engaged in the exact same behavior identified by his White House as “semi-fascist”: talking about physically assaulting his political opponent.

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked to explain how Biden’s assertion that many Republicans, especially Trump supporters, were “semi-fascists” might square with his claim to unify the country. Jean-Pierre cited a list of examples – some more dubious than others – of Republicans talking (or joking) about physical violence against their opponents.

“[J]Last week you had Governor Ron DeSantis, [who] suggested that Dr. [Anthony] Fauci should be physically assaulted, and former President Trump has done the same many times,” Jean-Pierre said.

She was referring to a joke DeSantis recently made about throwing Fauci (whom he called a “little elf”) across the Potomac River.

But by that definition, Biden himself is “semi-fascist.”

In October 2016 — ironically, in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, the same town he spoke in last Tuesday — Biden told Hillary Clinton supporters that he would rather beat Trump than debate him:

In 2018, Biden did the same, telling a crowd at the University of Miami that he would like to attack Trump – who at the time was the sitting president of the United States: “They asked me if I would like to debate this gentleman, and I said no. I said, “If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gymnasium and beat him to death.” Biden never apologized or explained his violent rhetoric.

According to Biden’s own administration, his rhetoric calls him a “semi-fascist” and a risk to the survival of democracy.
