Joe Biden Was Supposed to Be the Anti-Trump, but He’s Just as Divisive

Joe Biden’s mandate was to restore norms and work across the aisle to heal the country’s toxic political culture—in other words, to not be Donald Trump.

This past week demonstrated how he has failed to live up to that promise. In particular, his speech in Atlanta serves as a microcosm for a disappointing year of leadership that has cratered his popularity.

The president compared opponents of changing Senate filibuster rules, in order to pass Democratic voting rights bills, to notorious racists like Bull Connor, George Wallace, and Jefferson Davis. In so doing, Biden is appropriating Trump’s method of otherizing adversaries and casting political opponents as “enemies of the people” and “human scum.”

That doesn’t mean the president shouldn’t ever talk tough. I recently applauded Biden for his forceful rhetoric attacking the Jan. 6 Capitol rioters. In that instance, Biden’s words were appropriate for illiberal right-wingers who incited and participated in an attack on democracy.

A few short days later, however, Biden broadened his condemnation to implicitly include Republicans such as Mitt Romney, who heroically stood up to his own party and twice voted to impeach Trump. (Sadly, this is a trend. Back in 2012, Biden told African Americans that Romney would put them “back in chains” if he were elected president.)

Biden is also reinforcing his predecessor’s dangerous claims, by further advancing the idea that our elections are stolen. “And so, President Biden goes down the same tragic road taken by President Trump—casting doubt on the reliability of American elections,” Romney said.

It’s easy to imagine a scenario where voters of both parties believe—because they’ve been told so by the last two presidents—that every election they lose was rigged, either by Republican disenfranchisement of minority voters or by Hugo Chavez’s magic voting machines.

What’s more, the conventional wisdom that Republicans benefit from fewer people voting and Democrats benefit from higher turnout doesn’t hold water, no matter how many times it’s repeated by liberal pundits.

The truth is that election turnout in 2020 was at record levels, which is why the focus should not be on access to the polls, but rather, on how the votes are counted and certified. Instead of HR 1, Democrats should focus on reforming the Electoral Count Act.

While it may or may not be a good idea for states, such as Georgia, to scale back the number of drop boxes or the amount of time designated for early voting, it doesn’t equate to “Jim Crow 2.0.”

It’s also fair to question not just the dubious constitutional authority, but also the prudence of federalizing elections, as Biden wants to do with the voting rights legislation he’s championing. In the wake of Trump’s presidency, it seems counterintuitive to give the federal government more authority over elections.

Imagine a scenario where a president (think Trump) has more leverage over how elections are conducted, and state leaders (think Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger) have less. Yes, this is a slippery-slope argument, but if the goal is to address the weaknesses in our system that Trump exposed, the idea of federalizing elections is a step in the wrong direction.

Besides, killing the filibuster (which has existed for hundreds of years in one form or another) is a funny way to restore norms.

Believing the upper chamber should require more than a simple majority may be right or wrong, but the legislative filibuster has been employed and defended by Democrats such as Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden. What is more, the fact that Biden can’t persuade 50 Democrats to get rid of the filibuster only demonstrates that his primary legislative obstacle is not Republicans who filibuster, but rather, his inability to persuade his own caucus.

Like Biden, Trump tried to get rid of the filibuster, pressuring Mitch McConnell by calling him a “stupid person” and a “knucklehead” for refusing to do so. To McConnell’s credit, he didn’t budge.

Of course, if Biden gets his way, and Republicans take back the Senate in November, Democrats should expect McConnell to take full advantage, just as he has done in the past. “You’ll regret this,” McConnell warned when Harry Reid nuked the filibuster for presidential nominees except those to the Supreme Court in 2013, “and you may regret this a lot sooner than you think.” Of course, they did.

By casting his adversaries as enemies, undermining the efficacy of elections, seeking to give the federal government more control over state elections, and pressuring his party to do away with the filibuster, Biden is following in the well-worn path of the 45th president.

Biden’s only mandate was to not be Donald Trump. By that standard, it’s hard to rate the first year of his presidency as anything but a miserable failure.

and another fucking thing. the sleight of hand here makes me want to spit in someone's faces and dare them to do something on some spic shit.

trump laughed in their faces. dismissed them. called them fools. ignored them. made fun of them. was generally an asshole to them. he NEVER made half of the american people them out to be enemies of the state who probably should be considered domestic terrorists. he always appealed to all americans to come to his side. biden is doing what hilary did saying "you know what, we don't need them. we just gotta make sure more of us are in charge" there was NEVER an attempt to make a convincing argument (edit)

big fucking difference. being an asshole is elites is real different than calling half of the country unactivated potential terrorist cells.

fuck all the way off.

Trump was a true moderate and uniter, and look what they did to him. What we need is not a uniter, but a Sulla, someone to win a final victory and salt the earth of the battlefield so the blinkered notions of the pseudoelite can never again grow.

the escalation of rhetoric gets us here and it's a dangerous field to play on.

not that it isn't true. i'm not sure. i always hold out hope that argument prevails, but in the era of feelings, i don't know that it is possible.

The reality is unfortunate. This is not rhetoric or hyperbole: the only way to drain the swamp is by the temporary exercise of dictatorial powers, during which time there will be truth and reconciliation commissions, much ill-gained property will be escheated to the state, and many traitors will be executed after their due process. The travesty of an "election" in 2020; the perfidy on display throughout Spygate; the globalist tyrannical agenda on display through the coordinated covid response; the intolerable and continuing attempt to replace the people of this republic with a peon class of pliant serfs; the communist capture of all of our priestly institutions—all of it points in the same direction.

At the end of this are either be a few hundred graves, or a billion.
