Biden’s Christmas Address: All Talk, No Action

It’s clear that President Biden has no intention of living up to his promise of bringing unity to the country. In his Christmas address, he called for an end to the “poison of politics,” yet he spent much of the year attacking Republicans as “segregationists” and “semi-fascist.” How can we take his calls for unity seriously when he is actively working to divide the country?

In a recent gaggle with the press, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to defend the president’s divisive rhetoric by saying that it’s his job to “call out what he sees.” But what he sees is apparently only the actions of Republicans, as he has repeatedly attacked “MAGA Republicans” and even went so far as to label Georgia’s voting laws as “Jim Crow 2.0.”

It’s no surprise that conservatives on Twitter have called out the president’s hypocrisy. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s spokesman Chad Gilmartin rightly asked, “How does Joe Biden get away with this phony unity rhetoric after he smeared half the country as domestic terrorists and compared anyone who opposes his radical agenda to segregationists?” managing editor Spencer Brown also pointed out that Biden has tried to turn Americans against each other over the COVID-19 vaccine and frequently yells about half the country being fascists.

It’s time for President Biden to put his money where his mouth is and start working towards true unity in the country. The poison of politics will only end when he stops contributing to it with his divisive rhetoric.
