DCCC and DNC adviser Kurt Bardella on Tuesday defended President Biden’s frequent attacks on what he calls “MAGA Republicans.”
In August, Biden first claimed that MAGA Republicans supported forms of “semi-fascism.” On Thursday, he continued to push through that claim by making a political speech positioning MAGA Republicans as a threat to democracy.
While Republicans have attacked this speech and his comments as inflammatory and partisan, Democrats and many members of the media have defended Biden as speaking the “truth” about the Republican Party.
Bardella continued that defense by insisting on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” that Biden was not acting politically in delivering his speech or attacking Republicans.
Biden’s speech has since been criticized on multiple fronts for: his aesthetic choice and its conflicting reporting.
“By the way, it is not political to tell the truth about the threat to democracy posed by MAGA Republicans. It is not political to uphold your oath of office, which literally states that you must defend the Constitution of the United States,” he said. bardella. “If you have people who say that if they don’t get their way in the polls, they will resort to violence, if you have people there, sitting United States senators who say that if the Department of Justice actually enforces the law , there are riots in the streets, if you use violence to achieve a political means you have to be summoned and that is not political.”
He added, “That’s just being in the real world with the rest of us and telling the truth and being honest. That’s what President Biden is doing now.”
While Biden has since insisted he doesn’t think all Trump supporters pose a threat to the country, his comments are unclear about how much of the GOP falls. under the label “MAGA Republican”.
Bardella seemed to link the entire GOP to MAGA Republicans throughout the rest of his monologue.
“Meanwhile, Republicans are bending back and trying to somehow claim to be the National Security Party, the Law Enforcement Party, while simultaneously putting a target on the backs of FBI agents, a target putting their backs on polling station members, volunteers, the people who are literally on the front lines of our democratic process, the people we’ve all seen when we go to the polls and see the volunteers, the seniors, the civic people who don’t’ I I don’t have a partisan agenda, just want to do their part to make democracy work,” Bardella said.
He concluded: “Those are the people who are targeting MAGA Republicans and it’s despicable.”
