Biden announces national address on dangers of white supremacy on Jan 6 anniversary

Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris intend to make fears over white supremacy and domestic terrorism a centerpiece of their re-election campaign.

President Joe Biden, who has spent 37 percent of his 2023 year on vacation, will make sure to mark the coming anniversary of January 6, 2021 by stoking fears of white supremacy. He's been keeping this at the forefront of his rhetoric since he took office.

Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris intend to make fears over white supremacy and domestic terrorism—carried out by Americans, not by any potential cells that have crossed through the collapsed US-Mexico border—a centerpiece of their re-election campaign. 

That fateful day when hundreds of Trump supporters were let into the Capitol Building by Capitol Police officers and then arrested for trespassing has been used by fearmongering Democrats to stoke racial animus against white people and Trump supporters. Trump leads Biden among Hispanic voters and young people, and his 12 percent support among black voters has not declined since 2020 despite Biden's carefully constructed rhetoric.

As soon as the building was cleared, Democrats began vilifying Trump supporters and claiming that they had staged a "deadly insurrection." They mostly failed to note, however, that the only person killed that day was unarmed Trump supporter and veteran Ashli Babbitt, who was shot by Capitol Police. It was revealed months later that there was "no good reason" for shooting her.

For Biden, this is a great opportunity to remind America of his talking point that domestic terrorism and white supremacy—not border collapse, rising crime, inflation, or a $34 trillion debt—are the real threats facing America. In May, Biden promised "to stand up against the poison of white supremacy, as I did in my inaugural address — to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy."

Biden will speak at Valley Forge, Penn., right where founding father and first president George Washington commanded his troops during the Revolution.

Clearly, Biden wants to draw comparisons between himself, an aging, vacation-weary man who has served in government since the 1970s, and Washington, a commander who was thrust into power after the war and willingly, gladly gave up power after two terms to model a peaceful transition of power.

After making his stand at Valley Forge, Biden will travel to Charleston, South Carolina, where a mass shooting in 2015 at the historically black Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, carried out by a 21-year-old white man who was convicted on federal hate crime and murder charges, took the lives of nine parishioners. 

The campaign called this a "historic venue that embodies the stakes of our nation at this moment."

"Whether it is white supremacists descending on a historic American city in Charlottesville, the assault on our nation’s capital on Jan. 6 or a white supremacist murdering churchgoers at Mother Emanuel nearly nine years ago, America is worried about the rise in political violence and determined to stand against it," principal deputy campaign manager for Biden Quentin Fulks said.

Since then, a trans shooter murdered children and staff at a school in Nashville and was revealed to have done so out of a hatred for white Christians.

In September 2022, Biden delivered a speech to a blood-red background in Philadelphia saying that "Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic." All of this is based on the events of J6, which have not been repeated or escalated. For the campaign, however, this is the centerpiece of their argument for re-election.

Biden's campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez echoed these sentiments, saying "The threat Donald Trump posed in 2020 to American democracy has only grown more dire in the years since. Our message is clear and it is simple. We are running a campaign like the fate of our democracy depends on it. Because it does."

Biden has used his Department of Justice to go after Trump supporters who either went into the Capitol on J6 or were merely on the grounds. These included journalists as well, who were on assignment documenting the day. His DOJ has also targeted Trump with charges stemming from that day, saying that he engaged in a conspiracy against rights among other things, despite there being no evidence to suggest that Trump encouraged the riot—quite the contrary. 

Biden's FBI targeted Catholics who attend Latin Mass as domestic terrorists, going so far as to send undercover agents into churches. His DOJ encouraged the FBI to investigate parents who spoke up at school board meetings about Covid restrictions or sexually explicit material in schools with the same tools they use to fight domestic terrorism. 

Biden's press secretary said with pride on Tuesday that "always, always put equity at the center of every policy he's put forward."
