The White House stood by President Joe Biden’s strident remarks accusing Trump-supporting MAGA Republicans of “semi-fascism” and of being “a threat to our very democracy” by doubling down on the incendiary rhetoric of a man who blatantly lied when he claimed to be a uniter during his campaign, doubling down on the reprehensible demonizing of tens of millions of Americans.
During Friday’s daily press briefing, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended her boss’s despicable characterization of those of a different political persuasion whom he stopped just short of calling subhuman.
“I think he was pretty clear and he was very powerful last night. Look, what the president said last night was that, when it comes to MAGA Republicans, when it comes to the extreme ultra wing of Republicans, they are attacking democracy, right?” Jean-Pierre said. “They are attacking, taking away rights and freedoms, they are using threats of violence, they are taking away voting rights and he called it what it is, that’s what he did.”
“He called it what it is, that’s what he did and what many would argue, you know, historians would agree with us on,” she continued. “And so what Joe Biden believes is as president, he should and the president should be the strongest voice for democracy.”
“So he was making that very clear, he was making that contrast to what congressional Democrats have been doing, which is fighting for our rights, fighting for freedom, delivering on an economy that is historic, 10 million jobs that have been created, lowering health care, lowering prescription drugs, and making sure that we take on those special interest groups,” Jean-Pierre continued. “And we saw just a couple weeks ago that we won. So he’s making that contrast, trying to make that very clear of what we’re seeing today.”
When asked what Biden meant by “semi-fascism” in his denouncement of Trump supporters and whether it would become a regular talking point and whether it would be a “basket of deplorables” thing that is regretted, Jean-Pierre defended a president who has stooped to levels that not one of his 45 predecessors have gone to when referring to a sizable chunk of the American electorate.
“Look, I was very clear when I was laying out and defining what you know, MAGA Republicans have done and you look at the definition of fascism and you think about what they’re doing in attacking our democracy, what they’re doing in taking away our freedoms, taking away, wanting to take away our rights, our voting rights, I mean that is what that is,” she said.

“It is very clear and that is why he made that um, that um, that powerful speech that you heard from last night, and he has not shied away from saying that,” she continued, “maybe not using that specific word but you have heard him certainly use that definition,” Jean-Pierre added.
She did not mention – or was she asked – whether Biden’s FBI Gestapo’s storming of his top political opponent’s home, the indefinite holding of political prisoners in horrific conditions in the same manner that Vladimir Putin does, mass censorship, politically-motivated prosecutions, propagandizing the public and engaging in demagoguery more befitting of a certain mid-20th Century German leader would also fall under the classic of fascism.
Biden’s ugly rant entered the darkness of that infamous historical period as he whipped up bloodlust against a persecuted and marginalized demographic.
“We’re at a serious moment in our nation’s history, the MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security, they’re a threat to our very democracy, they refuse to accept the will of the people. They embrace, embrace political violence, they don’t believe in democracy,” the 79-year-old demagogue raged this week.

On Friday, when chased down by a reporter who asked what he meant by “semi-fascism” when referring to Republicans who support Trump, the divider in chief flippantly remarked, “you know what I mean,” flashing his teeth in a diabolical grin.

No president in U.S. history has ever conducted himself like a textbook fascist dictator as Biden has, weaponizing the whole of the federal government and the state security services against over 70 million Americans who voted for his opponent and, judging from his ominous speech on Thursday along his obvious pleasure with himself, there are likely dark days coming for those on the wrong side of the thoroughly unpleasant frontman of a ruthless junta that is determined to wipe out its opposition.
