During a televised address last week, President Joe Biden attempted to convince American voters that a vote for Republicans would be akin to a vote for destroying democracy, or something to that effect — his message was about as clear as mud.
“I’m not the only one who sees it. Recent polls have shown that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe our democracy at — is at risk, that our democracy is under threat. They too see that democracy is on the ballot this year, and they’re deeply concerned about it,” the president said, according to the White House transcript.
However, Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker turned the tables on the president, insisting during a recent Fox News interview with host Maria Bartiromo that the only true threat to Democracy is President Biden himself.
“When you have a president talking about the biggest threat to democracy, it [seems to be] electing a Republican. But I want everyone that is listening to me, the biggest threat to democracy is to have him at the White House,” Walker said.
Walker was referencing language and insults used by the Biden White House and top Democrats to convince American voters that “MAGA Republicans,” also called “election deniers,” pose an existential threat to American democracy.
The former football star pointed to examples of Democrats making bad calls as far as the U.S. economy is concerned. One example he provided was his opponent, Democratic Sen. Ralphael Warnock, voting against the Keystone XL pipeline project.
Walker said Warnock’s vote against the pipeline project “put us in an international threat, I think right now that’s a threat, it’s a security threat, going to our enemies to ask for energy, that’s a threat, that’s the biggest threat to democracy,” Walker said.
He added, “The biggest threat to democracy is to have the people, the Democrats right now leading this country, because they seem to be taking this country in the wrong direction, and I think Americans see that and know that.”
