Watch: Biden Sparks Mass Outrage with Remark about Trump Supporters, Compares Them to Slave-Owning Confederates

OPINION | This article contains opinion. Savage Takes is licensed to publish this content.

Joe Biden has sparked outrage by comparing slave-owning Confederates to Trump supporters who were at the Capitol in Washington D.C. on January 6th, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Biden said, “We’re facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War. That’s not hyperbole — since the Civil War.”

“Confederates back then never breached the Capitol as insurrectionists did on Jan. 6,” Biden added. This comment has sparked widespread outrage and backlash, including a response from Kipp Jones at Western Journal.

Jones responded, “Democrats have spent half-year convincing themselves that the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion was the worst moment in American history, and on Tuesday, President Joe Biden lowered himself to equating conservative Americans to slave owners.” Jones continued, “Biden was speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia about Democratic efforts to federalize elections and to stop states from asking people to prove who they are before they cast ballots. While speaking, he attacked voting integrity laws and compared people who no longer trust the untrustworthy battleground state election systems, such as the one in Pennsylvania, to slaveholders.”

After engaging in hyperbole, Biden attacked former President Donald Trump and all those who challenged the 2020 election results.

“The big lie is just that: a big lie,” Biden. “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’s not democracy, that’s the denial of the right to vote. It suppresses. It subjugates.”

Perhaps he should have a talk with Hillary Clinton, who attempted to convince voters that America’s elections are not secure when she said Russians helped Trump defeat her after 2016. Naturally, Clinton’s gripes were OK, as when a Democrat complains about an election outcome, their claims are given credence.

Stacey Abrams is proof of that. Abrams is still front-and-center in Democratic politics after claiming she was cheated out of the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race. She and others cast doubt on election integrity, and Abrams continues to grift to this day.


NEXT STORY: BREAKING: After 13 Years Of Conservatorship Controlling Her Life, Here’s What to Expect From Britney Spears’ Upcoming Court Appearance

The next step in Britney Spears’ legal battle to end her controversial conservatorship will be on Wednesday afternoon, according to Fox News. Spears made “dramatic comments” in court that condemned the conservatorship that has controlled her life for 13 years. “I just want my life back,” Spears said.

A Los Angeles judge with convene for a hearing on Wednesday to “deal with the aftermath,” Fox reported. Spears is not expected to speak again. During the hearing on June 23rd, Spears said she was being forced to take medication and use an intrauterine device for birth control. Spears added that she was not allowed to marry her boyfriend and said she wanted to own her own money.

Spears’ comments marked the first time she’s spoken out publicly about ending her conservatorship, which is largely controlled by her father, Jamie Spears. The explosive speech led to the resignation of her court-appointed lawyer, the withdrawal of an estate-management company that was supposed to oversee her finances as well as a volley of accusations between her father and a professional conservator over who’s to blame for the legal circumstances Spears said are “abusive” and need to end…

She was harshly critical of her father, who serves as conservator of her finances, and had more measured criticism for Jodi Montgomery, the court-appointed professional who serves as conservator of her person, overseeing her life choices.

James Spears said in a legal filing that the court needs to investigate the allegations and Montgomery’s role, pointing out that his daughter’s personal life has been beyond his control since he resigned as conservator of her person in 2019, a role he played for 11 years. He opposed Montgomery’s request for money to hire security because of recent death threats, saying he has been subjected to similar threats for years.


NEXT STORY: ‘This Is A Mistake’: George W. Bush Criticizes Biden, Says Withdrawal of U.S. Troops Will Have ‘Unbelievably Bad’ Consequences

Former President George W. Bush ripped Biden’s decision to withdraw U.S. and NATO troops from Afghanistan, according to Fox News. Bush added that the consequences will be “unbelievably bad.”

“This is a mistake,” Bush said during an interview with German broadcaster Deutsche Welle. “They’re just going to be left behind to be slaughtered by these very brutal people, and it breaks my heart.” Bush believes Afghan women and girls would “suffer unspeakable harm.” Biden, on the other hand, told reporters, “In this context, speed is safety.” Biden also stated, “The United States did what we went to do in Afghanistan – to get the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11 and to deliver justice to Usama bin Laden. We did not go to Afghanistan to nation-build.”

During an exclusive interview with Fox News in May, Bush said he did not think withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan was “necessary,” telling Fox News that he is “deeply concerned” that a “vacuum” will be created without a U.S. presence in the region.

“I’ve always warned that no U.S. presence in Afghanistan will create a vacuum, and into that vacuum is likely to come people who treat women as second class citizens,” Bush, who was president during the 9/11 attacks, told Fox News.

“I’m also deeply concerned about the sacrifices of our soldiers, and our intelligence community, will be forgotten,” Bush told Fox News.

“And you know, was it necessary? I don’t think so,” he continued. “But the decision has been made, and we now need to pray and hope that it is the right decision.”


NEXT STORY: Shameful: A Look Back At Bernie Sanders’ Long History Of Praising Cuba’s Regime Over Decades Of Communist Rule

Senator Bernie Sanders has a long history of praising Cuba’s regime, according to Fox News. The Cuban regime is recently currently cracking down on protesters. The protesters are demanding freedom after decades of communist rule. Now Sanders is up against serious criticism for “initially remaining silent on the protests,” Fox reports. Bernie later issued a statement late Monday night, which suggested the government should not use violence.

In the past, Sanders defended his praise for deceased Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. During a “60 Minutes” interview, Sanders said, “We’re very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but, you know, it’s unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know? When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?”

Video footage unearthed last year showed Sanders recalling his excitement for the communist revolution during a speech in the 1980s… “I remember, for some reason or another, being very excited when [former Cuban dictator] Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba,” he said, while speaking at the University of Vermont in 1986. “I was a kid … and it just seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against rather ugly rich people.”

During that speech, Sanders said he almost had to “puke” when he saw former President John F. Kennedy push his opponent at the time, former President Richard Nixon, to be tougher on Cuba. “For the first time in my adult life, what I was seeing is the Democrats and Republicans … clearly that there really wasn’t a whole lot of difference between the two,” he said.
