WASHINGTON, D.C. – The President of the United States again attacked American voters who disagree with him and his party Wednesday night in a desperate attempt to paint the GOP and its voters as a threat to democracy.
“As I stand here today, there are candidates running for every level of office in America – for governor, for Congress, for attorney general, for secretary of state who won’t commit to accepting the results of the elections they’re in,” Biden said. “That is the path to chaos in America. It’s unprecedented. It’s unlawful. And it is un-American.”
The President made the alarming remarks last night at a speech to the Democrat National Committee in Washington. “This has not happened since the Civil War. It sounds like hyperbole, but it hadn’t happened since then, as bad as it is now,” he said.
Biden starkly warned in a previous speech about what he called “an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
The Washington Post is reporting Biden’s grim assessment in a speech Wednesday evening came as the FBI and other agencies have forecast that threats of violence from domestic extremists are likely to be on the rise after the election.
Signs of strain in the nation’s democratic system mounted Wednesday with less than a week left before the midterm elections as Biden warned that candidates who refuse to accept Tuesday’s election results could set the nation on a “path to chaos.”
