Tucker Carlson calls Biden’s Pennsylvania speech a ‘turning point in American history’


Tucker Carlson has described President Biden’s Pennsylvania speech as a ‘turning point in American history’ while expressing surprise that the commander-in-chief had essentially branded loyal Trump supporters as ‘extremists’.

Although Biden had not even begun his speech when Carlson’s show went on air at 8pm EDT, Carlson was privy to the remarks Biden was about to make which he described as an example of ‘America [being] under attack.’

Carlson expressed surprise that Biden was essentially using what would normally be considered a campaign visit to make an official White House endorsed speech devoted to criticizing his political opponents. 

‘The threat is not coming from barefoot religious extremists in caves. It’s not the Chinese government. It’s not Vladimir Putin himself. The most evil man in history. No, this threat is worse and home grown. The single gravest threat to America today is Republican voters. All 75 million of them. They are Nazis and destroyers of democracy. That’s the message of Joe Biden‘s speech,’ Carlson stated, as he paraphrased Biden’s prepared remarks.

‘What Joe Biden is saying right now is the official position of the entire executive branch of the U.S. Government. That include the justice department and Intel agencies and the world’s most powerful standing military. Think about that. Does it make you nervous?’, Carlson asked his loyal Republican viewers. 

Carlson suggested that Biden’s remarks meant the current occupant of the White House would in fact prefer to see a one-party system which would in effect give him the trappings of a dictator.

‘You don’t have to be a trump voter to see a speech like this as a turning point in American history. For hundreds of years the U.S. has had a political system comprised of two competing parties. If you declare one party criminal, what would you be left with? You would be left with a one party state. That’s what Joe Biden is calling for tonight. A one party state. It’s shocking,’ Carlson suggested. 

He then turned his attention to White House press secretary Karine-Jean Pierre who on Thursday argued that Americans who support Trump’s ‘MAGA agenda’ are ‘extreme’ and ‘attacking our democracy.’

‘You know, when you ask me about the MAGA agenda, especially as it relates to Congress, relates to elected officials, it is one of the most extreme agendas that we have seen… it is the extreme part of the Republican Party,’ Jean-Pierre said. 

She then went onto to claim how they ‘are threatening political violence and they are attacking our democracy.’

Carlson blasted her in his opening monologue: ‘Anyone whose views differ from the majority of Americans. If your views are different from the majority, you are an extremist. Here’s the best part: Karine-jean Pierre works for a guy who has a 38% approval rating.  Math is not Karine-Jean Pierre’s strong suit. It’s not her boss’s strong suit either. Cognition is not his strong suit.’

Meanwhile, on the left side of the screen, Biden had begun his speech in Philadelphia declaring Donald Trump to a ‘threat to the country’ in a speech that contained his harshest rhetoric to date about his predecessor in the Oval Office and the MAGA movement.

‘Equality and democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise,’ Biden declared at the start of his remarks outside Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.

He called out Trump by name, slamming the former president for his false claim the 2020 election was stolen and berating those who support Trump.

‘Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represented extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic,’ Biden said to great applause from his supporters.

He made it clear he doesn’t think every Republican is ‘extreme’ or a threat but said ‘there’s 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,’ he said. ‘Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal.’

Biden accused Trump and his supporters of trying to thwart free elections, disrespecting the constitution and taking the country backwards in terms of personal rights.

‘MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They did not believe in the rule of law. They did not recognize the will of the people,’ he said. ‘They refused to accept the results of a free election.’

‘You can’t love your country only when you win,’ Biden said.

The remarks didn’t go down well with hardline Republicans.

‘Joe Biden is Hitler. NaziJoe has to go,’ declared Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

‘Joe Biden just declared all of us enemies of the state. Biden is a danger to us all. Joe Biden MUST BE IMPEACHED!!’ she went on.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy demanded the president apologize for his remarks. 

‘Instead of trying to bring our country together to solve the MANY problems he has created, President Biden has chosen to divide, demean, and disparage his fellow Americans—simply because they disagree with his policies. Mr. President: you owe millions of Americans an apology,’ he tweeted before making a statement in front of the camera. 

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz was equally appalled by Biden’s remarks

‘It’s ironic that Biden calls MAGA the fascists. History teaches us it’s the failing dictators in demise who raid the homes of their political opponents and explicitly divide the citizenry based on race,’ he tweeted, with a thinly veiled reference to the recent raid by on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.

South Carolina Rep. Lindsay Graham took a more measured tone as he responded to Biden’s remarks.

‘With all due respect Mr. President, there’s nothing wrong with America’s soul. The American people are hurting because of your policies. Rampant inflation. Out of control crime. Terrorism on the rise. Broken borders. Stop lecturing & change your policies before it’s too late,’ he urged.   

Texas Congressman Pat Fallon believed the speech to be a colossal misstep on behalf of the current administration. 

‘Joe Biden ran on unity and togetherness. Tonight’s divisive and tone deaf speech is a culmination of his team’s work and rhetoric. This Administration has villainized any American that does not agree with their radical far-left agenda,’ he stated. 

Political strategist Ronna McDaniel, Chair of the Republican National Committee summed the speech up in five words: ‘Angry. Divisive. Political. Stubborn. Failure.’
