President Joe Biden’s demagoguery has no limits, nor even a grain of logic. His clueless and knee-jerk reflex just reverts to labeling political opponents and dissenters as embracing “semi-fascism,” and so-called “MAGA Republicans” as “thriving on chaos.”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

You would be hard pressed to find any American joyfully thriving on the chaos created by Biden’s utterly contemptible and chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan one year ago; the blatant chaos created by Biden’s un-enforced southern border; the chaos of the fentanyl epidemic created by Biden’s feckless border and national security policies; the chaos of the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies; the economic chaos Americans experience whenever buying groceries or filling up the gas tank.

In the spirit of Matthew 7:5, Biden ought to ask Jill Biden, Ed.D., to remove the logs from his eyes just so he can see more clearly while removing tiny specks from the eyes of his fellow Americans.

President Joe Biden routinely apes Mussolini’s doctrine of fascism. Mussolini, himself a proponent of really big government, described his fascist worldview as anti-individualistic, opposed to classical liberalism, with no individuals or groups outside the State, and the instituting of corporatism through a Corporate State of Fascism.

So, now we see evidence of the Biden administration “colluding” in sync with Big Tech corporations to suppress free speech, as well as with global elitists, with the so called mainstream news media, and also with the big “green” corporations looking to get rich quick like the crony Solyndra companies of the Obama era.

All these collusions, or bundling, of government with corporate, media, union, and personal interests are reminiscent of the “fasces,” the bundles of sticks carried by ancient Roman officers, that Mussolini was symbolically enamored of. Il Duce eagerly sought to bundle his Italian society in a similar way through which government, corporations, media, schools, churches, workplaces and citizens were all bound together, one in the same.

Curiously, the U.S. Department of Justice building, among others, prominently features these Roman inspired fasces all while the department and its agents dutifully carry out Biden’s political prerogatives.

Adding insult to injury, Biden seeks to disarm American citizens by promoting laws and regulations to throttle the 2nd Amendment, as well as depriving citizens of their free speech, religious liberty and due-process rights. Even worse, Americans can look forward to an additional 87,000 IRS agents to cause further torment.

A decade ago when Biden was vice president, his party let the mask slip off a little when the DNC boldly proclaimed “The Government Is The Only Thing We All Belong To.”

Here’s a clue Joe … Americans are not subjects belonging to the government. The government belongs to the people, to serve only the people. That is precisely why our U.S. Constitution begins with the words “We the People …”

There is nothing democratic about Biden and his Democrat Party. Their creepy fetish with ever more centralized government and control is the very essence of statism, i.e., semi-fascism. Statism is anathema to our constitutional republic.

In the meantime, Biden’s job approval numbers remain very upside down. Yet he demagogues from a position of weakness, with little authority and no credibility whatsoever.

Biden is looking for semi-fascist perpetrators, but he is only psychologically projecting. He needs only to look in the mirror and at his own political party.
