The Left’s vision for America has grown increasingly dark. Its embrace of identity politics has morphed into an all-out drive for divisiveness, demonizing huge swaths of the American people for purely political purposes.
The optics for this prime-time address were as bad as his rhetoric. Bottom-lit in scarlet, Biden appeared like a character from Dante as he clinched his fists and insisted that he was fighting a battle for the soul of our nation. But his angry, hectoring screed showed he’s fighting on the wrong side.
The true soul of our country is the American people. The families whose schools were closed, whose communities are beset by violent crime, whose children are being indoctrinated and sexualized in their classrooms, who were already paying more than ever for gas, food, and rent and are now paying off the student loans of lawyers, professors, and White House aides.
If anyone is a danger to the soul of this nation and what America represents in the story of human history, it’s Biden and his far-left allies.
The American people know it. Polls show it.
Yet Biden’s speech in Philadelphia made very clear that he has every intention of ramming his deeply unpopular agenda—for our government, our economy, our energy, our schools, our border, our security, and his crime wave—down Americans’ throats unless and until he is stopped.
Conservatives must fight back—not simply by attacking the woke, Marxist Left, but by engaging the millions of hardworking families being left behind by its self-serving, elitist agenda and helping them make their voices heard. It’s not enough to express our displeasure over the Biden-led lurch to the left; we must build a coalition and agenda to turn our nation around.
On the economy, education, immigration, Big Tech, the right to life, China, crime, opioids, and the crisis of the American family—conservatives cannot be cowed by Biden’s divisive partisanship. We must be energized by it, inspired to rise above it, and help our nation do the same. And we must do it as we have done it successfully in the past: together.
