Last night in Philadelphia, President Joe Biden delivered a rousing speech that sounded like it was written for a Nazi propaganda film with a stage set so very reminiscent of the pomp and grandeur of the Third Reich. The mesmerizing backdrop colors of red and black were utterly terrifying like the speech was being made from Dracula’s castle. The Chief-of-State gave an angry discourse where he targeted MAGA supporters and fingered Republicans as election-denying ‘extremists’ who threaten democracy and need to be fought tooth and nail. He now has to resort to intimidation, something that he always takes the opportunity to accuse his predecessor of. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about SEMI FASCIST – THE WANNABE ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR.
I have always said that here in America we have a tough time figuring out what is fascist and what isn’t because history has skewed our image and action parameters. Meaning that we identify totalitarian leadership by images we have drawn out of history.
When we try to imagine what a fascist dictator looks like we often think about a leader flanked by military wearing black, red armbands, and jackboots.
The backdrop usually looks like some older brick room — with red flags or even red lighting to show power.
All of these images we have seen in movies. For example, the First Order in Star Wars and that memorable scene in the Force awakens where General Hucks addresses the stormtroopers near Star Killer base.
It looks like a Nazi gathering and it was meant to as George Lucas has said that many of the scenes where the Emperor shows up or when Vader or in this case Hucks addresses the troops are actually paying homage to Nazi propagandist Leni Riefenstahl.
In 1935, German filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl made a little movie called ‘Triumph Of The Will’, and it was a gorgeously decorated and beautifully shot movie about the spiritual power of Adolf Hitler. She was aiming to make Hitler look like a Savior of the German people. However, now we know that what she created was a very powerful-looking antichrist.
Last night in Philadelphia, Joe Biden delivered a rousing speech that sounded like it was written and staged like a Leni Riefenstahl film.
On a stage set so very reminiscent of the pomp and grandeur of the Nazi party. It was all a little unsettling to say the least, and if Donald Trump had given a speech on such a platform, the press would have ripped him apart from one end to the other.
But Biden garnered nothing but fawning praise.
Obviously, this was meant to be a psy-op trap because if anyone had the fortitude to point out how much it looked like a Nazi Hallmark card — they would certainly be called a MAGA Republican.
Well, I am not a MAGA Republican but I am a historian and history is a political — and if you did not see something that looked like something out of a fascist playbook then the country is most certainly lost.
Completely blinded by hate towards one man, enough to cash in your patriotism card in exchange for some president channeling his inner Hitler.
I think this is the second time I have seen this in contemporary history. The last time was when George W, Bush Landed a plane on the USS Lincoln to declare “mission accomplished” in the Middle East.
It too looked like a Leni Riefenstahl production.
Then as the red lights deepened the spotlight fell on the President. He then pounded the podium like a dictator throwing around words like ‘semi-fascist’ and ‘MAGA Republicans’ in the same sentence. Biden talked about how MAGA Republicans ‘promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence’.
ironically ie was a statement thzat was an incitement to political violence.
It was as if he took a page from the ANTIFA playbook where the very ones calling you a fascist are the actual fascists who desire to enslave you. The only ‘extremist threat’ to the United States of America comes from intelligence ops that capitalize on ignorance and emotional baggage that is being held tightly by extremist left-wing agitators.
Trump should all be an afterthought after his loss, a blip in history but it turns out to be the best thing the Democrats have ever had.
He is like Satan to the Christian church.
I did a whole show about how Prince Charles or even Prince William could be the antichrist and the day after the President of the United States delivers a speech in a place that looks like a spook alley,
The explicit effort by Biden to marginalize Trump and his adherents mark a sharp turn for the president, who preached his desire to bring about national unity in his Inaugural address. White House officials said it reflects his mounting concern about Trump allies’ ideological proposals and relentless denial of the nation’s 2020 election results,
So Biden decides to go full filter because some people think he is an illegitimate President and you thought Nixon had a persecution complex.
President Joe Biden warned Thursday night that “equality and democracy are under assault” in the U.S. as he sounded an alarm about his predecessor, Donald Trump, and MAGA Republican adherents, labeling them an extremist threat to the nation and its future.
A word of warning to anyone who supported the blatantly fascist it speech given by President Biden last night you need to understand one thing.
The cabal of the two parties is very proud of their theatre of bitter contention on cultural issues and fundamental collusion on matters of state.
Because while our president appears to have declared war on what he calls MAGA voters the system is lurching in an ever more authoritarian direction.
Regardless of which party prevails in November, the same class is in power.
I am sure that taking Biden to task on his violent stances makes me look like a Trump supporter –but I can not stand idly by and watch a speech where the backdrop looks like it was taken from a Marylin Manson Antichrist Superstar Concert or worse a fascist speech from the film V for Vendetta.
Biden gave an angry speech where he targeted Trump supporters and fingered republicans as election-denying ‘extremists’ who pose a threat to democracy and need to be fought tooth and nail.
He literally called for war — and there isn’t a liberal out there that heard it because they were all caught up in the mesmerizing colors of Red and Black — some say the backdrop was utterly terrifying like the speech was being made from Dracula’s castle.
Many were saying that Biden looked like a character from Philip K. Dicks Man in the High Castle but most agreed that Biden reminded them of Adam Sutler played by John Hurt in V for Vendetta — the mannerisms and tone were terrifyingly similar.
Sutler for those who are unaware is a fictional character that would be a cardboard cutout fascist leader that could easily pass as a character from 1984.
The world of V for Vendetta has many parallels with that of 1984, a totalitarian state with, most likely, an invented enemy to keep the population fearful and compliant.
The irony is that the time the story V for Vendetta was set was between 2020 and 2022.
It appears that the backdrop for Biden’s speech was no accident. He used powerful colors like red and black as a backdrop to send a message.
Colors directly target the Autonomic Nervous System that functions and operates under involuntarily and subconscious control. They target the sympathetic nervous system or parasympathetic nervous system.
Colors have a symbiotic relationship with energy and matter. Every color has a different energy, frequency, and wavelength, which is why colors can ramify your mood so much.
Color is a powerful communication tool and can be used to signal action, influence mood, and even influence physiological reactions. Certain colors have been associated with increased blood pressure, increased metabolism, and eyestrain.
Colors can’t necessarily dictate your behavior, but they sure can influence your decisions on your judgement and affect your mood, because colors activate the hypothalamus, and each color focusses on either the sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous systems that evoke specific physiological responses, that cause a psychological reaction.
Red has always been a power color – it has been a trigger color for aggression and strain. Red is the most powerful and strongest color.
Many people link red to emergency fires, alarms and warning signs. On a physiological level, when you see red it increases pulse rates in a crowd setting it can trigger aggressive attitudes.
The backdrop for Biden’s speech was Black and Red. These colors a most associated with the devil, or it triggers memories of the Gestapo as their uniforms were black and silver with a red armband.
Biden’s background imagery featured red lighting of the brick exterior of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall and Marines flanking the building’s entrance.
There were a few comments on Twitter that claimed that Biden looked like an agent of The First Order from the Star wars movies where the leaders of the Empire’s first order spoke with a red and black backdrop,
Sadly it was a campaign event full of demeaning rhetoric, backlit with ominous red lighting–something that most of the people he attacked in his speech paid for with their tax money.
As for the Military detail — it was very wrong for the President to have it behind him as the military is supposed to be apolitical. It is wrong when republicans do it too — but it happens and it just has wrong written all over it no matter who does it.
But of course, at this outing, it was the Republicans that were being targeted as Biden compared Republican ideology to “semi-fascism.” He called those who questioned the election and those who still supported Trump a threat to democracy.
Just short of declaring them enemies of the state.
He stated “For a long time, we’ve reassured ourselves that American democracy is guaranteed, but it is not. We have to defend it. Protect it. Stand up for it. Each and every one of us.”
People should consider what this rhetoric means and both Republicans and Democrats should demand that a president should be censured for doing so.
Trump was held to a standard for January 6th inciting violence in hos followers –and now Biden should also be held to a standard that he should not incite a war against those who do not support him. His words were directed to the American people as policy.
In the first half of his 24-minute speech, Biden described a nation on the very knife’s edge of dictatorship. “Equality and democracy are under assault, and we do ourselves no favor by saying otherwise,” he said. Donald Trump and his supporters are “a clear and present danger,” who “placed a dagger at the throat of our democracy” on January 6, 2021.
The threat is live. Trump and his network of far-right backers within the state are engaged in “preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections” to “nullify the votes” of tens of millions of Americans, Biden said.
While stating that “not every Republican” is a pro-Trump “MAGA Republican,” Biden for the first time declared, “There is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated and intimidated by MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.”
He continued, “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution, they do not recognize the will of the people, they refuse to accept the results of a free election. They are working right now in state after state to give power to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers to undermine the elections. They are determined to take this country backwards, backwards to a country where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”
Biden said that Trump and “MAGA Republicans” are engaged in “more and more talk about violence as an acceptable tool in this country.”
“Public figures are predicting and all but calling for mass violence and rioting in the streets. This is inflammatory, it’s dangerous, it’s against the rule of law, and we the people must say this is not who we are.
“We are at an inflection point, one of those moments that determine the shape of everything that is to come after,” Biden said. “We are still at our core a democracy,” he said, defensively, adding, “American democracy is not guaranteed, we have to defend it.”
Biden spoke as if there is a coup de tat in the works and that if his presidency is threatened he will defend it.
If Trump and his follower are “a clear and present danger” against democracy, why has Biden allowed him to remain free?
Again if President Biden has a case then please put him in cuffs and lock him up but so far this so-called threat to our democracy still walks a free man — he has been harassed impeached and now as a private citizen his house has been raided — and still the man walks free.. this is terrifying because what this means is that a sitting president has declared war on half of his people — the people he is supposed to fight for equality, If his problem is with Trump then he has the power to take care of it.
Why doesn’t he — he needs to mean what he says. An old man yelling from a pulpit claiming that democracy is on its deathbed already knows the outcome and he certainly hopes that it goes his way — or heads will roll.
Biden and the Democrats are so scared of explaining the true source of the danger to this country because it will foil their plans to be part of this one world plantation they are planning for us,
So now they yell at us from scary red and black rooms blaming a scapegoat — and being very vague on what the next step will be.
We know what steps Biden and his followers want — and that is the go-ahead to go back and destroy cities and rally against law and order.
So fearful is the ruling class of telling the truth about the degeneration of American capitalism that they can only talk to the American people like they are children. They have infantilized us and speak to us as if they are the saviors of this planet,
Biden sounded like a Catholic cardinal when claimed Trump sprang like the devil from the depths of hell. Trump’s rise, he said, was a product of “hate,” “chaos,” “darkness” and “evil.”
He made no references to the immense social inequality that dominates American social life, to the wars abroad that have had devastating consequences for our way of life.
Hecklers could be heard shouting “F- Joe Biden” in the background throughout the speech, and this distracted the president to the point where he was forced to recognize their presence twice.
He concluded his speech with the same tired appeal to “vote, vote, vote” for the Democrats in the midterm elections. But the outcome of the election will have no impact on the long term threat of fascist dictatorship, or the Planned reset which draws its strength not from Trump the individual but from the crisis that the current president uses to harden the resolve of the World economic forums oligarchic political system.
Biden had said himself that “we do ourselves no favors” by denying the threat of the MAGA republicans which will obviously be used as an excuse for his failures as a leader.
Last March at the State of the Union Biden said that “the State of the Union is strong,” “we are stronger today than we were a year ago,” and “we will be stronger a year from now than we are today”.
Well, his speeches apparently need a continuity director because all of the things he said back then were obviously lies.
He now says we are under threat,
You can’t have it both ways and Biden’s followers don’t even pick up on these empty emotional appeals.
it is odd to think that 19 months after January 6th Biden finally decides to address the problem of fascism in our country. He conveniently blames it on Trump and declares war on his supporters.
The man is unhinged.
Nine weeks before the midterm elections in which Trump candidates are heading the Republican ticket, Biden announces that the danger is greater than ever. He would not be making a rare prime-time address, with Independence Hall as his backdrop, if his administration did not feel that it was confronting a political crisis of unprecedented proportions.
The events of the past three weeks testify to a conflict so intense that newspapers regularly publish articles pondering the imminence of civil war.
Just yesterday The guardian reported that More than 40% of Americans think civil war will be likely within a decade.
More than half of ‘strong Republicans’ that Biden has attacked as threats to democracy think such a conflict is at least somewhat likely, a poll finds.
Lindsey Graham predicted “riots in the streets” if Trump is indicted over his retention of classified documents after leaving the White House, materials recovered by the FBI at Trump’s home this month.
Graham earned widespread rebuke. Mary McCord, a former acting deputy attorney general, told CNN it was “incredibly irresponsible for an elected official to basically make veiled threats of violence, just if law enforcement and the Department of Justice … does their job”.
But Graham’s remarks were the \very reason Biden made his speech about those who pose a threat to democracy and how we need to fight.
After the Mar-a-Lago raid, Trump’s attorneys delivered a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland that contained a mobster-like threat: “President Trump wants the Attorney General to know that he has been hearing from people all over the country about the raid. If there was one word to describe their mood, it is ‘angry.’ The heat is building up.
The pressure is building up. Whatever I can do to take the heat down, to bring the pressure down, just let us know.”
Well, I don’t believe the speech Biden made calmed anything down — I think it just ratcheted up the strategy of tension.
Biden made it perfectly clear that the Democratic Party is not fighting fascism; it is paving the way for the further strengthening of the far right.
Again, he may have just shot himself in the foot — his all bark no bite actions will eventually get under the skins of democrats who want to see Trump hang in the public square.
They want extra judicial execution, they don’t want due process — Biden has declared war and no one wishes to admit it.
Biden encourages his followers to spread democracy and all of this vote for the republic nonsense — but if it is so bleak, how can one spread democracy here and abroad when there is a fascist threat to this clean and envious democracy he shouts about?
And while we’re at it how is the fight for “democracy” against fascists at home advanced by providing Ukraine with billions of dollars in weapons? Especially the Azov battalion that are known, as fascists.
Biden has said that unity between “mainstream Republicans” and Democrats is necessary to counter Russia and China and overcome the damage Trump did to the interests of US imperialism.
Well, fat chance of finding any unity now — his tough words are going to come back and bite him in the ass.
This speech he made was far more damaging to the country and to his reputation than showering with his daughter or covering for his son Hunter ever could.
In his remarks, he was careful to distinguish between “MAGA Republicans” and “mainstream Republicans,” asserting that the latter “love our country.”
But the latter also have associates that are MAGA Republicans that don’t appreciate being called threats to democracy.
If one takes seriously even half of what Biden was yelling from the pulpit, the American political system is on the verge of disintegration.
What he does not say and cannot say, however, constitutes an indictment of Bidens inability to lead this country. He now has to resort to intimidation –something that he always takes the opportunity to accuse his predecessor of.
