President Biden campaigned on a message of unity — of bringing the country together. And he mentioned it again during his inaugural address.
"On this January day, my whole soul is in this, bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation. And I asked every American to join me in this cause," Biden said. "With unity, we can do great things, important things."
But he didn't mean he wanted to unify all of America — just those who were already on his side.
"A rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism that we must confront, and we will defeat," Biden added.
So who are these people that they "will defeat"? Sen. Rand Paul, R- Ky., believed it was the Republican Party, and said Biden's address was filled with examples.
"If you read his speech and listen to it carefully, much of it is thinly-veiled innuendo calling us white supremacists, calling us racist, calling us every name in the book. Calling us people who don't tell the truth," Paul told Fox News.
Former CIA Director John Brennan confirmed Paul's beliefs.
He advised MSNBC that Biden's intelligence teams "are moving in laser-like fashion to try to uncover as much as they can about … insurgency movements" comprised of "an unholy alliance, really, of religious extremists, authoritarians, fascists, bigots, racists, nativists, even libertarians."
And who did he say these "fascists, bigots, racists" are?
"There has been this momentum that has been generated as a result of, unfortunately, the demagogic rhetoric of people that just departed government and also those who continue in the halls of Congress."
So the enemy of the people isn't antifa. It's Republicans — especially those who served in the Trump administration. In other words, despite Kayleigh McEnany's cute and perky appearance, she's actually evil and corrupt … or something.
And then there are those Republicans in Congress. They also have to be destroyed, according to former FBI Director James Comey. He said in an interview published Thursday that after the departure of the Trump administration, the GOP must "be burned to the ground."
Even former Vice President Mike Pence isn't exempt, despite his even-tempered "nice guy" image. New York Times contributor Will Wilkinson tweeted, then later deleted, "If Biden really wanted unity, he'd lynch Mike Pence."
And Biden administration officials proved they're not above ignoring fact to make the previous administration appear incompetent.
Instead of congratulating the Trump administration for Operation Warp Speed — the program that made multiple COVID-19 vaccines available in months instead of years — they claim that Trump officials left them flat-footed and having to start from scratch.
CNN reported Thursday, "Newly sworn in President Joe Biden and his advisers are inheriting no coronavirus vaccine distribution plan to speak of from the Trump administration, sources tell CNN, posing a significant challenge for the new White House."
Biden officials say their goal is 100 million vaccinations by April 30, and to meet it they believe they need to vaccinate one million Americans per day. But the Trump administration was already doing that, according to Ellen Carmichael, president of The Lafayette Co., a political communications firm.
And she predicted that "99 days from now, we'll see the follow-ups about how they saved us all, despite the odds."
And if they blow it? They can blame the Trump administration, after all, "There is nothing for us to rework," a Biden source told CNN. "We are going to have to build everything from scratch."
Biden himself wasn't above being underhanded on his first day, when he bowed to union bosses' demands and fired Peter Robb, general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board.
Robb, a Trump appointee, had more than nine months remaining of his four-year term, and historically the NLRB's general counsel is left to serve his term despite new administrations, and despite Biden's call for unity a few hours earlier.
Finally, and most egregiously, Biden has yet to denounce the snap, drive-by impeachment of his predecessor.
Immediately after the inauguration, the Rev. Franklin Graham asked Biden to call the impeachment off for the good of the nation and in appreciation of the new president's "conciliatory words" that asked "both parties to work together."
"If the Democrats go ahead with pushing for the impeachment of a president who has left office, it would only further divide our nation," Graham wrote on Facebook. "I hope President Biden will stand up to those on Capitol Hill who want to impeach Donald Trump and tell them to put this behind us. If he wants to unite the country, this would be a huge step forward."
Apparently this request escaped Biden's attention. He was busy firing the NLRB general counsel.
Democrats, and Biden especially, don't want unity — they want revenge. And that makes them indistinguishable from antifa.
