In an unintentional moment of candor, Pres. Joe Biden declared that Republicans don’t view Democracy the same way that Democrats do.

Biden make the observation in an interview with “60 Minutes,” as he attempted to smear Republicans who want to Make America Great Again.

Biden may, indeed, be right, since he has preferred to use executive orders and departmental “rules” to circumvent Congress and its laws, to weaponize government and, in particular, to wield the Justice Department against his political rivals and others – such as parents, Catholics, and pro-life citizens – who oppose his agenda.

In Sunday’s interview, Host Scott Pelley invited Biden to blame “hard-right Republicans” for putting the world in danger:

“The president is asking for billions of dollars for Israel and Ukraine, but Congress is paralyzed. Hard-right Republicans are obstructing the election of the speaker of the House. 

“Does the dysfunction that we've seen in Congress increase the danger in the world?”

“Yes. Look, this is not your father's Republican Party,” Biden answered, before launching into, what he believed to be, a slur:

“Thirty percent of it is made up of these MAGA (“Make America Great Again”) Republicans who are mainly - democracy is something they don't look at it the same way you and I look at democracy.”

The topic was immediately changed.

Biden did not, however, make any reference to the danger of the highly-influential, radical-left segment of his own party – known as “The Squad” – which advocates socialism, supports Palestine in the wake of Hamas’ terrorist attack on Israel, and defends Biden’s open-borders policies that have created an immigration crisis.
