Fox News Host Criticizes Democrats for Having the Audacity to Oppose … Fascism?

It’s been two weeks since President Biden delivered his historic Soul of America speech, wherein he alerted the nation to the growing threat of authoritarian forces deeply embedded in Donald Trump’s MAGA crusade. The speech addressed the stark choice that the country faces between being “a nation of hope and unity and optimism, or a nation of fear, division, and of darkness?”

Donald Trump

In the intervening weeks, Fox News has remained fiercely fixated on what they have falsely characterized as Biden’s hostility to half the nation. Never mind that Biden explicitly said that he was not referring to all Republicans, or even to all Trump supporters. The dishonest narrative that Fox News was intent on promulgating was more important than the truth.

RELATED: Biden Was Wrong to Call MAGA Republicans Merely ‘Semi’ Fascist

That same seething obsession was evident on Monday’s episode of Fox and Friends. in a response to remarks by her guest, far right radio talker Jason Rantz, co-host Harris Faulkner latched onto the fake Fox factoid that Biden had insulted the MAGA cultists saying that…

“If they’re anti-semi-fascist, which is how they see more than half the country now – because Democrats are looking up and saying ‘Look we we just want lower prices. Where’s that $1.99 gas.’ – Are they pro-Antifa?”

There is so much wrong in that sound-fright that it requires some delving into. First of all, Faulkner is still lying that Biden was referring to “half the country,” when he was clearly referring only to MAGA extremists, like the insurrectionists who stormed Congress on January 6th. And even if Biden was referring to every Republican voter, it still wouldn’t be anywhere near 50% the country. There are 350 million people in the U.S. Only 71 million voted for Trump. Which is about 21% of the country, as well as seven million fewer than voted for Biden. Granted, 21% is still way more than we should tolerate, but it’s way less than than what Faulkner and every liar on Fox News has been regurgitating.

What’s more, Faulkner is not a particularly reliable source for what “Democrats are saying.” However, her whining about gas prices appears to be stuck several weeks in the past. Gas prices have dropped for 13 weeks in a row. And the only reason it was two bucks during Trump’s term was because of the COVID-19 pandemic that he so terribly mismanaged. Does she really want to go back to those days when no one was driving or leaving the house because thousands were dying every day?

More to the point, Faulkner’s complaint that Democrats are “pro Antifa” isn’t the beat-down that she thinks it is. Setting aside the fact that there is no such Democratic entity, being anti-fascist is a broadly popular position in this country. There are many others who likewise consider themselves anti-fascist. They’re called patriotic Americans. But if Faulkner and Fox News want to brag about being pro-fascist, we might as well let them. After all, their Dear Leader Trump doesn’t even bother to disguise it anymore.

Tucker Carlson Hypes Steve Bannon Conspiracy Theory that FBI is ‘Purging’ Trump Supporters

You know for sure that you’re scrapping the bottom of the barrel when you’re reporting “news” based on what Steve Bannon says. And that’s where Tucker Carlson of Fox News found himself on Friday. Not that Carlson’s sources for news have ever been credible, or even sane.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Bullshit Factory

Carlson’s Friday episode of his “White-Wing Power Hour” featured a segment that began with the moth-eaten “Fox News Alert” banner that adorns every story on the network, from immigrant caravans full of diseased gang members, to Democrats desexualizing animated candy characters..

RELATED: OH NO! Tucker Carlson is Turned Off By ‘Less Sexy,’ ‘Unappealing’ Cartoon M&Ms

Carlson was in his typical state of confused hysterics over another sensationalized event he heard about from one of his crack (addicted?) stringers. According to incorrigible felon, Steve Bannon, the “jack-booted Gestapos” of the FBI are on a rampage, “raiding” the lairs of dozens of “innocent” Trump cult followers at the direction of President Biden. Never mind that there is no evidence whatsoever of any such raids. That doesn’t deter Carlson from reporting this fake atrocity as fact…

“So a remarkable story… A Fox News alert for you. We don’t know the parameters of it but apparently the FBI has launched a full-scale purge of supporters of Donald Trump. That would be Joe Biden’s likely opponent in the upcoming presidential election. And that purge has intensified significantly today. So Steve Bannon just said that yesterday alone, the FBI raided the homes of dozens of Trump allies.”

Notice that Carlson is asserting this nonsense as fact despite admitting that he doesn’t “know the parameters” of the fiction he’s disseminating on national TV. He portrays this imaginary injustice as a “full-scale purge” of Biden opponents whose homes were pillaged by rogue agents of the law. Purged from what, he doesn’t say.

Carlson went on to interview an attorney who said that she represented the alleged victims. But by her own count they were only three of them, and none of their homes were raided. They merely received subpoenas for information relating to crimes involving alternate electors, illegal fundraising, and the January 6th insurrection that Trump incited.

Throughout these segments, Carlson displayed chyrons on screen that said “FBI Reportedly Raids Dozens of Trump Supporters” and “Up To 50 Trump Supporters Raided Across the U.S.” Once again, there were no credible reports of any raids, even by the victims’ lawyer. The only “report” came from Bannon, who said without any verification that…

“There were 35 senior members of MAGA, Republicans, supporters of Donald Trump that the FBI rolled in on.”

This whole horror story appears to have been hatched after ABC News reported that a federal grand jury is investigating Trump’s ridiculously named “Save America” PAC for potentially unlawful fundraising schemes…

“A federal grand jury investigating the activities leading up the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and the push by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the result of the 2020 election has expanded its probe to include seeking information about Trump’s leadership PAC, Save America, sources with direct knowledge tell ABC News.” […]

“The subpoenas, sent to several individuals in recent weeks, are specifically seeking to understand the timeline of Save America’s formation, the organization’s fundraising activities, and how money is both received and spent by the Trump-aligned PAC.” […]

“Trump and his allies have consistently pushed supporters to donate to the PAC, often using false claims about the 2020 election and soliciting donations to rebuke the multiple investigations into the former president, his business dealings, and his actions on Jan. 6.”

From that seed of truth, Bannon and his confederates in the Trump propaganda factories, manufactured these allegations of non-existent raids. And Carlson was only too happy to pick up the ball and run with it. Yet somehow this sort of crapola is allowed to be aired on a network that claims to report the news, by a host who has argued in court that he can’t be held responsible for defamation because “no reasonable person” would ever believe what he says. Unfortunately, there are way too many unreasonable persons watching – and believing – Tucker Carlson and Fox News.

SEMI-FASCIST? Trump Wants the FBI to ‘Raid’ the House of Joe Biden – AKA the White House

Last week President Biden delivered a historic speech alerting the American people to the threat posed to democracy by Donald Trump and his MAGA Republicans. It was a long overdue wake up call to take seriously the ultra-rightists who have already committed gross acts of violence in pursuit of a totalitarian, Trump-led dystopia.

Donald Trump, Constitution

Biden’s speech was predictably criticized by conservative politicians and pundits. Some (i.e. Tucker Carlson) excreted their knee-jerk disapproval without even watching the speech. They used what they assumed would be in it to further whine about Biden’s accurate assessment of MAGA’s anti-democratic thuggery. That included griping about Biden’s prior characterization of the MAGA crowd as “semi-fascist.”

RELATED: Biden Was Wrong to Call MAGA Republicans Merely ‘Semi’ Fascist

Thankfully, Trump can always be relied upon to validate the critiques of his noxious behavior. Whenever he he is accused of some malfeasance, he will inevitably do or say something that proves it. Such was the case Monday morning when Trump took to his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, to fume the following…

“So they riffled through the living quarters of my 16 year old son, Barron, and the loved and respected former First Lady of the United States, Melania, but, despite proven high crimes and treason, and just plain common theft, all pointed out in the Laptop from Hell (and elsewhere), they never Raided or Broke Into the house of Hunter Biden or, perhaps even more importantly, the house of Joe Biden – A treasure trove! This is a Country that’s unfair and broken. We are truly a Nation in Decline!!!”

First of all, it is almost certainly a lie that the FBI “riffled” through Barron’s room. This is the first time in nearly a month since the search warrant was executed that Trump ever mentioned it. He now appears to be using his own minor son as a shield for his legal tribulations.

Furthermore, Trump is overtly lying about “proven high crimes and treason” by Hunter Biden, for which there is no actual proof. Trump is merely regurgitating tiresome and baseless accusations that he has been yammering about for years. And it takes an extreme measure of gall to complain about “common theft” when he’s referring to the laptop of Hunter Biden, which was literally stolen.

Finally, Trump concludes from this deranged sequence of non-events that Joe Biden’s house should be raided by the FBI. Biden’s house is, of course, the White House. So Trump wants the FBI to conduct some sort of search of the White House, looking for an unspecified “treasure trove” of evidence of some imaginary crime. And he doesn’t think there’s anything semi-fascist about that?

Evidence of Trump’s authoritarian aspirations are revealed more clearly with every passing day. He couldn’t care less about the laws that he is brazenly violating, whether having to do with his election interference, his finances and taxes, or his hoarding of classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago bunker. He regards himself as above the law. And by that he means the law of man and God.

Here’s All the MAGA in Biden’s ‘Soul of America’ Speech – And Trump’s Crackpot Critique

President Biden delivered a primetime address on Thursday that was both hopeful and harrowing. The subject was “The Battle for the Soul of the Nation,” and early on Biden identified the choices that face the country asking whether America should “be a nation of hope and unity and optimism, or a nation of fear, division, and of darkness?”

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

While Biden’s optimism was present throughout, the threat to America’s democracy was what made this speech necessary. Donald Trump and his MAGA cult have become increasingly dangerous since he lost the presidential election in 2020. They have refused to accept the will of the people. They have worked tirelessly to undermine democracy. And they even tried to stage a coup by violently attacking Congress on January 6th, 2021.

More recently, Trump was found to have been hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort/home, posing enormous risks to national security. And after being caught, he began making exponentially more absurd excuses for his crimes and his lies to the FBI. All of this has led to Trump and his cult followers turning more to violence and threats of violence.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham Tells Fox News that ‘There Will Be Riots in the Streets’ if Trump is Prosecuted

That’s what Biden sought to alert the nation about in his speech. It was a non-partisan message that expressly drew a distinction between mainstream Republicans (to the extent that any still exist) and the MAGA Republicans who have pledged their devotion to Dear Leader Trump. In that regard, Biden made several references to Trump’s hateful MAGA movement. For the record, is here what Biden said about the hostile and openly seditionist MAGA-nauts (video below, and transcript here)…

“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. 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.”

“They see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections.”

“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.”

“Democrats, independents, mainstream Republicans: We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving American democracy than MAGA Republicans are to destroying American democracy.”

“Democracy cannot survive when one side believes there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated. And that’s where MAGA Republicans are today.

“MAGA Republicans look at America and see carnage and darkness and despair. They spread fear and lies – lies told for profit and power. But I see a very different America — an America with an unlimited future.”

“The MAGA Republicans believe that for them to succeed, everyone else has to fail.”

“History tells us that blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence is fatal to democracy.”

RELATED: Trump is Covertly Recruiting More Violent Insurrectionists With Promises of Future Pardons

Naturally, Trump couldn’t refrain from weighing in with his customary distortions of reality. in a comment that he posted on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, Trump wrote that…

“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!”

If you look at the words and meaning of Biden’s speech, you will find nothing that even remotely approaches the bullpucky that Trump is ranting about. Biden never “threatened America,” or suggested using military force in any way. Trump’s failure to provide a quote is evidence of his shameless dishonesty and/or cognitive collapse. He’s just flinging feces at the wall to see if anything will stick.

It’s ironic that Trump asserts that Biden is “insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!.” Given his inability to coherently comment on Biden’s speech, his imaginary description of what the speech was about, and his pitifully predictable hostility triggered by fake recollections, it’s Trump who appears to be distancing himself from the real world. But then, that’s nothing new for him.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News Bashes Biden’s ‘Soul of America’ Speech – that He Didn’t Watch

On Thursday night President Biden delivered an address that was intended to alert the nation to the threat of right-wing extremism as embodied in Donald Trump and his MAGA cult. So predictably, the knee-jerk, anti-Biden brigades were out in force to lambaste him, mostly for things he never said.

Fox News. Tucker Carlson

At the front of the line was Tucker Carlson of Fox News. He began his harangue even before Biden began speaking, so he obviously hadn’t seen a second of it. Yet his moron-ologue was filled with the hostility of a wounded predator on crack. Carlson raged that…

“If you are watching this right now, you are missing a rare prime-time address from Joe Biden. Biden doesn’t give a lot of those for obvious reasons, but tonight’s topic is worthy of the occasion. America is under attack. And not from our usual enemies. The threat we face tonight is existential, but it’s not coming from barefoot religious extremists living in caves. It’s not the Chinese government. It’s not even Vladimir Putin, himself, the most diabolically evil man in history.

“No, ladies and gentlemen, this threat is worse than all of that, and it’s home grown. As they say in the horror movies, it’s coming from inside the house. The single gravest threat to America today is Republican voters, all 75 million of them. They are Nazis and destroyers of democracy. They must be stopped. That is the message of Joe Biden’s speech.”

RELATED: Tucker Carlson Actually Tells the Truth: White Supremacists = Trump Supporters

Carlson didn’t (couldn’t) cite a single passage from Biden’s speech. Not having seen any of it will cause that sort of omission. And yet, he spoke as if he had watched the whole thing and had something relevant to say about it. But he could not have heard any of the numerous times that Biden expressed his optimism about America’s promise and his confidence in its future. He couldn’t have heard Biden praise free speech, even that of a heckler cussing at him through a bullhorn.

However, the real message for the speech was the peril presented by what Biden calls Trump or MAGA Republicans. Carlson blatantly lied when he said that Biden had attacked “all 75 million” Republican voters, when he explicitly clarified that it was a small faction of the GOP’s extreme right wing. Biden clearly specified that…

“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. Now, I want to be very clear, very clear up front: Not every Republican, not even the majority of Republicans, are MAGA Republicans. Not every Republican embraces their extreme ideology. I know because I’ve been able to work with these mainstream Republicans. But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”

“These are hard things. But I’m an American President — not the President of red America or blue America, but of all America. And I believe it is my duty — my duty to level with you, to tell the truth no matter how difficult, no matter how painful. And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.”

As usual, Carlson and Fox News don’t bother to connect their bonehead blather to reality. Their mission has always been to viciously malign Democrats and the majority of progressive Americans with rancid hostility and overt hatred in order to divide the nation. And the people who are now accusing Biden of being divisive, are the same people who have been for years calling him a senile Marxist who wants to destroy the country. Then they demand that we unite with them? Yeah, right!

Fox News Flunky Peter Doocy Deliberately Distorts Biden’s Pro-Police Calls for Unity

The Republican Party has become so deeply damaged by Donald Trump and his gargantuan, though fragile, ego, that they are abandoning the principles that were once the core of their political doctrine. For decades the GOP tried to pass itself off as the “law and order” party, despite the fact that many more of their members have been charged and convicted of crimes.

Fox News, Peter Doocy

On Tuesday President Biden was in Pennsylvania to deliver a speech about public safety. He was taking head on what Republicans have traditionally claimed was a policy they believed was their personal property. However, a key component of Biden’s message was that “When it comes to public safety in this nation, the answer is not defund the police, it’s fund the police.”

Biden also condemned the GOP’s support for Trump, even after he incited a violent insurrection in Washington, D.C., during which more than 140 law enforcement officers were injured. And he made reference to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s unconscionable threat that there will be “riots in the streets” if Trump is held to account for his cavalcade of criminality.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham Tells Fox News that ‘There Will Be Riots in the Streets’ if Trump is Prosecuted

As Biden was speaking, Fox News, true to form, cut away from the speech to fling unfounded criticisms at him. Among those interrupting Biden to bash him was Fox’s Senior Nepotistic White House correspondent, Peter Doocy. And as is required by Fox News, he offered a purposefully dishonest representation of Biden’s comments in a deceptively brief clip…

Biden: Whose side are you on?
Doocy: Compare the volume there with this measured line from the inaugural address. The President said “We can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature.” The President said, on his first day, he thinks unity is the path forward, is now telling people instead to pick a side.

There is so much wrong with that short burst of bullpucky. First of all, does Doocy really think that an analysis of the volume of Biden’s voice is some sort of profound insight? More to the point, Doocy is deliberately misrepresenting Biden’s remarks. Biden was not asking anyone to pick a side with respect to a political party, as Doocy implied. He was asking people to choose police over violent rioters; respect for the law over lawless hostility. And Doocy knows that.

For the record, here is a longer clip of Biden’s remarks that presents them in context…

“So let me say this to my MAGA Republican friends in Congress. Don’t tell me you support law enforcement if you won’t condemn what happened on [January] 6th. Can’t do it. For god’s sake, whose side are you on? Whose side are you on? You’re either on the side of the mob or the side of police. You can’t be pro-law enforcement and pro-insurrection. You can’t be a party of law and order and call the people who attacked police patriots.

It is also important to note that unity is not a goal that must be met unconditionally. While there is merit to uniting Americans behind efforts to improve their lives and advance the interests of the nation, no American should seek unity with violent insurrectionists, Nazis, racists, traitors, or others who reject our laws and Constitution.

Finally, there is surely no need to form a unifying bond with disgraced former presidents who steal highly sensitive national security materials, store them insecurely at their resort/hotel, and lie to the FBI about having them. Certainly we can all unify behind that.

Trump Spins a New Crackpot Conspiracy Combining an FBI Retiree, Mar-a-Lago, and Hunter Biden

He’s at it again. Donald Trump is posting feverishly on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, about the avalanche of atrocities that have been accurately attributed to him. On this Tuesday morning he has pounded out more than 60 rage fueled rants, mostly reposts of random Truth Socialists and QAnon-sense accounts. And mostly with less than a 1,000 reposts on his thinly trafficked website.

Donald Trump, Deep State

Prominent among Trump’s plaintive whining is his paranoid fixation on what he believes to be the world’s determination to destroy his MAGA dreams. His acute victimhood is now focused on a conspiracy theory about a retiring FBI agent who Trump and his cult disciples are convinced is serving some clandestine anti-Trump cabal. Trump spun a fantastical tale about a…

“‘Special Agent’ In Charge of the unprecedented and unnecessary Raid and Break In of Mar-a-Lago [who] was also involved in the hiding and suppressing from the Public and the Media, the ‘Laptop from Hell,’ the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, and so much more!”

Trump also insisted that this bogus “scandal” warranted that some amorphous, unidentified overlord “Declare [him] the rightful winner” of the 2020 election, or “have a new Election, immediately!” Which anyone modestly educated about the law and the Constitution knows that that is not how any of this works.

RELATED: Wannabe Dictator Trump Decrees a Delusional Demand that He Be Anointed American Messiah

What Trump is referring to is a report that Agent Timothy Thibault is retiring after 25 years of service to the FBI. This exceedingly ordinary event has been clutched onto by Republicans and the wingnut press as having some sort of secret and nefarious back story. Along with Trump, they are accusing him of having been in charge of the search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker, as well as the investigation into Hunter Biden’s stolen laptop.

The truth, however, is quite different. Thibault is a relatively low-level staffer with the D.C. field office. He had no authority to influence either the Biden case or the investigation into Trump’s hoarding of highly sensitive national security materials at his Palm Beach resort/hotel. Also, the Biden case was actually run out of a different FBI field office and it is still ongoing.

In any case, the FBI would not have opened a politically charged case in October of 2020, so close to an election. Even Fox News reported that Thibault had nothing to do with Mar-a-Lago:

“Thibault was one of 13 assistant special agents in charge at the Washington field office. He was not involved in the FBI raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this month at any level.”

Trump cultists have been busy maligning law enforcement for allegedly suppressing the probe into Hunter Biden. They complained that “Deep State” actors sought to portray the existence of his stolen laptop as Russian propaganda. However, news reports were not saying that the laptop didn’t exist, only that Russia was exploiting the story to foment distrust in American democracy. They were. And, not coincidentally, so was Donald Trump.

The Trumpies got their latest crackpot theory from an interview of Facebook boss, Mark Zuckerberg, by Joe Rogan. It’s rather telling that when Zuckerberg said that the FBI had warned him of a spike in Russian disinformation, the right-wing echo chamber immediately claimed it was about Hunter Biden, even though Zuckerberg never said that. It’s an utterly false narrative that is also being spread on Fox News…

Trump himself cited the Rogan/Zuckerberg interview as proof that, but for the “fake News” he “would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election.” Which is a rare admission by Trump that he actually lost the election. And not because of a massive, nationwide campaign of voter fraud, but because of alleged misreporting about the travails of President Biden’s wayward son. Yeah, that’s the ticket! And with that we have hit a temporary bottom for Trump’s pathetic excuse-making. But don’t be fooled. He can still go much lower.

Wannabe Dictator Trump Decrees a Delusional Demand that He Be Anointed American Messiah

As the legal peril that is engulfing Donald Trump continues to choke off any plausible opportunities to escape accountability for his multitude of crimes, he is exhibiting ever more severe degrees of desperation. It’s the cornered rat syndrome that is driving his increasingly bizarre outbursts and fits of rage.

Donald Trump Messiah

On Monday morning Trump posted an extraordinarily deranged rant on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social. In his customarily inarticulate, run-on sentence style of incoherent blather, Trump lashed out at his perceived enemies with the viciousness and venom of someone who is both frightened and unalterably conscious of his guilt.

RELATED: Lindsey Graham Tells Fox News that ‘There Will Be Riots in the Streets’ if Trump is Prosecuted

Trump seethed

“So now it comes out, conclusively, that the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY BEFORE THE ELECTION knowing that, if they didn’t, “Trump would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election.” This is massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE at a level never seen before in our Country. REMEDY: Declare the rightful winner or, and this would be the minimal solution, declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election, immediately!”

Needless to say, everything in that post is a lie. To begin with, it has not come out, conclusively or otherwise, that “the FBI BURIED THE HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP STORY.” What Trump is referring to is a recent interview of the chairman and CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, by Joe Rogan. Trump, and most of the right-wing echo chamber, has falsely reported that Zuckerberg told Rogan that the FBI had asked or ordered him to suppress any news about Hunter Biden’s stolen laptop.

However, Zuckerberg said nothing at all about that. He actually said only that the FBI had warned him of the possibility that Russian disinformation was likely to be disseminated online prior to the 2020 election, just as it was before the 2016 election. Which is irrefutably true. Zuckerberg said that…

“The background here is that the FBI came to us – some folks on our team – and was like ‘hey, just so you know, you should be on high alert. We thought there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election, we have it on notice that basically there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that.”

Trump and his cult followers manufactured the version of that story that included Hunter’s laptop. And from that blatant distortion of reality, Trump baselessly asserted that he “would have easily won the 2020 Presidential Election” had there been more coverage of his fake Hunter news. He even put that in quotes, although he didn’t cite any source for what he was ostensibly quoting. And like everything else in Trump’s cartoon brain, it represented some horror that was “at a level never seen before.” For the record, Biden won by more than seven million votes and it’s highly unlikely that many Biden voters would have voted for Trump because of some controversy concerning his son.

Nevertheless, this is what Trump regards as “massive FRAUD & ELECTION INTERFERENCE.” And his solution to that fallacy is utterly and hysterically bonkers. Trump impotently demands that someone “declare the rightful winner” (which was Joe Biden) or “declare the 2020 Election irreparably compromised and have a new Election.” Of course, there is no one who has that authority, and there is nothing in the law or the Constitution that would provide for that preposterous “remedy,” even if it were warranted, which is isn’t.

RELATED: Trump Suffers Severe Cognitive Collapse, Claims that ‘Everyone Was Happy’ When He Was in Office

As with almost everything that Trump yammers about these days, this is a pathetic fiction that he’s trying to elevate into a scandal. It isn’t working. And the more he fails, the more desperate and unhinged he becomes. Look for him to start accusing Biden of having stolen his strawberries or of blasting him with Jewish space lasers. It’s just a matter of time.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

The latest example of the GOP’s stridently artificial outrage was revealed in their reaction to recent remarks by President Biden about what he has called the “Ultra-MAGA” Republican Party. When Republican politicians and pundits heard what he had to say, they rushed to distort his actually words, and to manufacture their alternative version. Because fidelity to reality has never been the right’s strength.

In a speech at a fundraising event, Biden expressed his view of the fiercely fanatical fear mongers who comprise so much of today’s Republicanism that is drenched in the hostility and ignorance of Donald Trump. Biden prefaced his remarks by explicitly narrowing them to the extremists in the GOP, saying that “I respect conservative Republicans. I don’t respect these MAGA Republicans.” Then he went on to address the uber-rightist faction of the party saying that

“What we’re seeing now is either the beginning or the death knell of an extreme MAGA philosophy. It’s not just Trump, it’s the entire philosophy that underpins the – I’m going to say something – it’s like semi-fascism.”

Oh my! Now he’s done it. Republicans launched into their customary knee-jerk response mode, wherein they extended Biden’s narrowly intended comments to every member of the GOP. Never mind that Biden specifically directed his criticism to the “extreme MAGA philosophy.” He elaborated saying that…

“The MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal and economic security. They’re a threat to our very democracy. They refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace political violence. They don’t believe in democracy. This is why in this moment, those of you who love this country, Democrats, Independents, mainstream Republicans, we must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving America than the MAGA Republicans are to destroying America.”

The only mistake Biden made in his speech was using the qualifier “semi.” There is nothing semi-fascist about inciting an insurrection. There is nothing semi-fascist about attempting to stage a coup and usurp power by undermining democracy. Their is nothing semi-fascist about pardoning your coup-plotting accomplices. There is nothing semi-fascist about suppressing the vote. There is nothing semi-fascist about demeaning the free press as the “enemy of the people.” There is nothing semi-fascist about stealing national security materials, hoarding them at your resort hotel/home in Florida, and lying to the FBI about it. And there is surely nothing semi-fascist about aspiring to authoritarianism and encouraging your cult disciples to support your tyrannical aspirations.

The disingenuous indignation emanating from the right is further negated by its sheer hypocrisy. While they are pretending to be mortally wounded by Biden’s deliberately narrow and irrefutable remarks, they seem to have forgotten all of their own far more offensive attacks on all Democrats and liberals. Republicans, including Trump, have disparaged everyone from Joe Biden to Joe Manchin as traitorous socialists, and even communists. Here are a couple of recent examples of the GOP putting their ignorance on display:

You know who else called their enemies fascist? Americans! It’s ironic that one of the right’s favorite bogeymen is an amorphous contingent of protesters that they have labeled “Antifa,” which is short for anti-fascist. So if Republicans are against that, are they admitting that they are pro-fascist?

One thing that Republicans can’t escape is that a majority of the American people are as disturbed by the MAGA Republican movement as Biden is. And this November could confirm that, so long as all voters are well informed and if Democrats turn out to vote in numbers equal to their composition of the electorate. That’s harder than it sounds, and requires hard work on behalf of patriots who want to save our democracy.

Ted Cruz Articulates the Republican Party’s Utter Disdain for Education and Young Voters

Last week President Biden fulfilled a campaign promise to address the problem of burdensome student college loans. The program provides forgiveness of $10,000 of outstanding loans – $20,000 for Pell grants – for people with incomes below $125,000 a year.

Ted Cruz, Cancun

Within minutes of the announcement, Republicans and their conservative media mouthpieces began criticizing and lying about the program. They complained that it was a socialist handout that awarded deadbeats, loafers, and elitists.

The right-wing reaction revealed just how contemptuous the GOP is of working class Americans. And topping the list of liars is one of the GOP’s most prolific prevaricators, Sen. Ted Cruz. When he isn’t demonstrating his animosity for his troubled Texas constituents by jetting off to Cancun while they were freezing to death, Cruz is groveling on Fox News for the affection of Donald Trump, Tucker Carlson, or some other MAGA martinet.

On Friday Cruz pontificated on his podcast about how despicable Americans are if they had the audacity to better themselves and their prospects for the future by attending college. Never mind that Cruz graduated from Princeton and Harvard Law. In his perverse mind today’s youth are a generation of vermin who deserve nothing but mockery and scorn. Cruz ranted that…

“There is a real risk if you are that slacker barista who wasted seven years in college studying completely useless things, now has loans, and can’t get a job, Joe Biden just gave you 20 grand. Like, holy cow, that 20 grand, you know, maybe you weren’t gonna vote in November and suddenly, you just got 20 grand.

“And you know, if you can get off the bong for a minute and head down to the voting station, or just send in your mail-in ballot that the Democrats have helpfully sent you, it could drive up turnout, particularly among young people.”

So in Cruz’s putrid perspective, higher education is a waste of time. He thinks that today’s college graduates are “slackers” and potheads. And he believes that their votes can be bought by politicians who dare to actually serve the interests of the people. What a concept.

You have to wonder what Cruz regards as “completely useless things” to study. Well, judging by his record in Congress, it’s science (climate change), math (economics), history (American slavery), journalism (the enemy of the people), and public policy (which is what Cruz’s undergraduate degree at Princeton was for).

In the meantime, Biden is pursuing what the broad majorities of the American people support. He recently expressed his agenda in eloquent terms when he distinguished the choices voters have…

See: BIDEN: Americans Have a Choice Between Two Very Different Sets of Values: Ultra-MAGA or Sanity

“My plan attacks inflation and grows the economy by lowering costs for working families, giving workers well-deserved raises, reducing the deficit by historic levels, and making big corporations and the very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share.

“The other path is the ultra-MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans to raise taxes on working families; lower the incomes of American workers; threaten the sacred programs Americans count on like Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; and give break after break to big corporations and billionaires.”

Republicans have spent the last year and a half engaging in knee-jerk opposition to nearly everything that Biden and the Democrats have proposed. But despite that fierce obstructionism, Democrats have succeeded in advancing legislation that has stagnated for years in Congress. These bills have made significant progress on infrastructure, reproductive choice, gun safety, climate change, voting rights, tax fairness, veterans benefits, healthcare, and more. And Republicans opposed all of them.

It’s also notable that while Democrats are working on behalf of the people, Republicans are working on behalf of themselves. The White House posted a revealing thread on Twitter that brilliantly exposes the hypocrisy of Republicans who are attacking Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan, while they stuffed their own pockets with hundreds of thousands of dollars more…
