The Biden Administration is off the rails.
It starts at the top with Joe Biden.
And Biden repeated one insane threat to every American who opposes his agenda.
Joe Biden has weaponized the Department of Justice against his political opponents in bone-chilling ways.
For example, Attorney General Merrick Garland authorized the FBI to surveil parents protesting at school boards.
So it should be taken with the utmost seriousness when Biden seemingly makes an overt threat against the American people.
Biden did that again when he made an argument during a speech against gun rights at the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter Meeting, which many saw as threatening to use lethal force against American citizens who oppose his agenda.
He said that any Americans arming themselves in an attempt to resist the federal government would need fighter jets to stand a chance.
Biden dismissed a famous Thomas Jefferson quote that read: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
First, Biden perhaps committed a Freudian slip and said, “And I love people who say, the ‘blood of liberty,’ or excuse me, ‘the tree of liberty is watered with the blood of patriots.’”
In Biden’s mind, the “blood of liberty” would be awaiting those who fight against government “tyrants,” which he curiously omitted from Jefferson’s quote.
Nevertheless, Biden’s rhetoric as the head of the Democrat Party only serves to further division and radicalization in the country.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer did the same thing during a fiery speech when he threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
Schumer shouted, “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price.”
Schumer’s words ultimately led to conservative Justices being harassed in public and outside their homes; one deranged leftist even traveled to Maryland intent on assassinating Justice Kavanaugh, but he was deterred by security.
Biden continued, “Well, guess what, man. I didn’t see a whole lot of patriots that are out there walking around making sure that we have these weapons.”
Because it was understood that they could, and did, own any weapons available at the time.
Some of the framers thought the Bill of Rights was unnecessary, but others knew that positive rights could rear their ugly head and restrict gun ownership and speech down the road.
Jefferson – whose quote Biden whatever his purposes were, butchered – was among the Founders who argued for the positive right of citizens to keep and bear arms.
In fact, Jefferson included citizen gun rights in each of his three drafts of the Virginia Constitution in 1776.
Biden added, “And if you really want to worry about the government, you need an F-16.”
In 2022, Biden made a similar statement: “For those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about keeping Americans ‘independent and safe,’ if you want to fight against a country, you need an F-15…You need something a little more than a gun.”
Apparently, Biden has upgraded from an F-15 model to an F-16.
Of course, the Taliban did not need F-16s to trigger Biden, and his generals’ botched withdrawal from Afghanistan or to overwhelm the government Biden left in power.
If resistance to tyranny were so futile, the government wouldn’t be working so hard to grab guns.
Democrats’ “weapons of war” myth
As for the common Democrat talking point of labeling AR-15s and other regular semi-automatic firearms as “weapons of war,” when the Second Amendment was written, private citizens could own anything that governments could.
In fact, virtually every merchant vessel had cannons on board for their own defense against both pirates and foreign privateers, the latter of course being by definition privately-armed raiders employed by governments.
Despite all of that, today the U.S. government enforces tight regulatory controls on actual weapons of war, including automatic weapons – save of course maybe those in the hands of the Taliban.
But Biden and the D.C. Swamp evidently decided long ago to turn the War on Terror inward on law-abiding Americans here at home long ago.
They’ve used January 6 as an excuse to weaponize the federal government against Donald Trump and his supporters.
Now it looks like they’re hoping to goad someone into giving them an excuse to unleash the violence Biden seemingly just threatened against American citizens writ large.
