Last night, President Biden gave a speech in front of Independence Hall that was billed as an opportunity to unify the country However, the President's speech was purely divisive, gaslighting in an attempt to deflect from the failures of his own administration.
That was the most demagogic, outrageous, and divisive speech I have ever seen from an American president. Joe Biden essentially declared all those who oppose him and his agenda enemies of the republic. Truly shameful. pic.twitter.com/ZcJX2BbZlt— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 2, 2022
The President declared: "MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law."
DEMOCRACY 'UNDER ASSAULT': Biden previously pledged to unify the nation yet he smeared Trump voters, saying they do not respect the Constitution and do not believe in the rule of law. https://t.co/S5d8B5AI6U pic.twitter.com/22UTeZFqRv— Fox News (@FoxNews) September 2, 2022
This is laughable considering the systemic lack of respect for the Constitution and the rule of law by the Biden Administration and Democrats.
One of the most glaring examples of the breakdown of the rule of law is the crisis on our southern border:
Biden spoke as an overwhelming and ongoing migrant crisis continues to ravage the border since he took office. Currently, around 200,000 illegal migrants hit the border each month. There have been more than two million migrant encounters this fiscal year alone, after a record-setting 1.7 million last fiscal year.
While some are expelled under the Title 42 public health order -- which the Biden administration is seeking to end, but has so far been blocked by a federal court -- most migrants are released into the U.S. ahead of a court hearing that can be more than a year away. Asylum hearings can take five to eight years to complete, and the vast majority are ultimately denied.
The Biden administration has stopped border wall construction, ended asylum agreements that would see illegal immigrants sent to closer Central American countries to claim asylum, and stopped the Migrant Protection Protocols -- which kept migrants in Mexico for their asylum process.
Not to mention the explosion of crime in Democrat-run cities and the rise in threats against people they don't agree with, such as conservative Supreme Court Justices.

You would think that would get Democrats to denounce the left-wing protestors who are harassing the justices — but it hasn't.pic.twitter.com/fpxeQTe9Lr
On the Constitution and democracy front:
Biden wrapped himself in the mantle of the “rule of law,” which his administration has so flagrantly disregarded with illegal orders on the CDC eviction moratorium, the OSHA vaccine mandate, and now student-loan debt. He talked about the Constitution, yet his list of rights he intends to protect — “right to choose,” “right to privacy,” “right to contraception,” “right to marry who you love” — consisted entirely of things the Constitution never mentions; he couldn’t spare a word for free speech, free exercise of religion, the right to bear arms, or due process of law, all of them punching bags for his administration. He complained that, “Democracy cannot survive when one side believes there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated,” that, “You can’t love your country only when you win, and that, “I will not stand by and watch — I will not — the will of the American people be overturned by wild conspiracy theories and baseless, evidence-free claims of fraud.” Again, he attributed this only to his political opponents, ignoring all manner of offenses against this norm by his own side, ranging from Biden himself branding the 2022 elections as illegitimate unless Congress passed a bunch of bills that won’t pass, to Chuck Schumer calling American elections a “rigged game,” to election-deniers Terry McAuliffe (whom Biden eagerly supported in 2021) and Stacey Abrams (whom Biden is eagerly supporting in 2022).
President Biden's divisive rhetoric is the last thing the country needs as it struggles economically and to maintain its position on the world stage. Americans can make a change by electing Republicans in November who can counter the Democrats' destructive policies.
The best way to protect the American people from this deranged ideologue is to elect a Republican majority this fall. pic.twitter.com/51za89yPmI— Tom Cotton (@TomCottonAR) September 2, 2022
