President Biden called Trump and the Republicans , pushing the big lie selfish, undemocratic, and unAmerican.
President Biden said:
The big lie is just that. A big lie.
It’s the will of the people of this nation. This should be celebrated. An example of America at its best. But instead, we continue to see an example of human nature at its worst, something darker and more sinister. In America, if you lose, you accept the results.
You follow the constitution. You try again. You don’t call facts fake and then try to bring down the American experiment just because you’re unhappy. That’s not statesmanship. That’s selfishness.
That is the denial of the right to vote. It oppresses, it subjugates free and fair elections the most unamerican thing that any of us can imagine. The most undemocratic, the most unpatriotic. Yet sadly, not unprecedented.
President Biden is using his bully pulpit toframe the conversation. If you are opposed to allowing people to vote, you are unAmerican. That is the Biden message. Taking away voting rights is undemocratic.
Biden also powerfully called the Big Lie and what Republicans are doing to suppress the vote a threat to democracy.
The message should be uttered over and over again daily. Republicans who are trying to destroy voting rights are undemocratic and unAmerican.
Following the lead of Trump makes you a threat to the nation.
