In recent days, Joe Biden has suggested a “brass knuckle fight” if Democrats can’t get their way in the US Senate. In fact, he added that if Democrats can’t pass their agenda, then perhaps it’s time to resort to actual revolution. His exact words: “Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it.”
It all happened in a town hall meeting of sorts where rich old white guy Biden pandered to something called the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign. Yes, that’s apparently the name.
Suppressing political opposition using violence? Isn’t that like fascism?
(sometimes initial capital letter) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.
Biden, currently the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, made the remarks at the Moral Action Congress of the Poor People’s Campaign in Washington, D.C.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Biden: “How would you get past either a majority Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering when you were vice president and anything that came from the Obama-Biden administration Mitch McConnell considered dead on arrival?”
“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones who thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together,” Biden responded. “The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive.”
“There are certain things where it just takes a brass knuckle fight,” Biden continued, later adding: “Let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it.”

Thank heavens the Founders had the foresight to include the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights to protect us from government tyranny and those who would promote it. Sort of like the “physical revolution” that Creepy Joe Biden surely seems to openly desire.
Recall a certain Illinois resident named James T. Hodgkinson, pictured above.
Hodgkinson hated Trump and Republicans. He worked on the Bernie 2016 campaign and belonged to the Facebook group “Terminate the Republican Party”. As we all know, Hodgkinson took up arms in “revolution” against the Republican Party by trying to assassinate a bunch of Republican Congressmen who were practicing for a charity baseball game.
He nearly succeeded, too. He gravely wounded Rep. Steve Scalise before two DSS security agents shot and killed the would-be assassin.
Once again, thank heavens the Founders ensured we’d have the right to keep and bear arms in order to protect us from these people who are inclined to use physical violence to achieve their political goals.
