The Left’s Midterm Strategy: Gaslight America

President Joe Biden attacked conservatives on Wednesday while responding to a question about the recently leaked draft opinion by the U.S. Supreme Court, which indicates the court’s intentions to strike down the Roe v. Wade ruling that created the idea of a constitutional right to abortion in the United States.

Responding to a reporter about the draft decision, Biden said, “What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that has existed in American history.”

Despite Biden’s demagogic attempts to strawman and slander the court’s decision and the millions of concerned Americans who support it, the ruling will simply return the responsibilities of regulating abortion to the states, where they were before the radical 1973 Roe decision that effectively struck down democratically established laws across the country.

The reporter’s question was, “What’s the next step with abortion once this case gets settled?” When the president got to the question, he claimed that the case was about “a lot more than abortion.” Attempting to tie the draft to an irrelevant issue, Biden asked, “What happens if you have states change the law, saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children? Is that legit under the way the decision’s written?”

The answer to Biden’s question is a simple “no.” Despite claiming to have read the draft decision, the president made this statement in direct contradiction to what Justice Alito actually wrote when he asserted that, “We emphasize that our decision concerns the constitutional right to abortion and no other right.” 

And this is the left’s strategy this election year. They intend on kindling the enthusiasm they’ve lost throughout the term of this failed presidency by pretending this draft decision is something it’s not, pretending this economy is something it’s not, pretending the Democratic Party is something it’s not and pretending conservatives are something they’re not.

The game here is for the midterm elections and justifying the radical policy of packing the court. This is exactly what the administration needs to stop the red wave that’s coming and bring the left’s destructive agenda to fruition in the last half of Biden’s term, and beyond.

The president didn’t offer help with the investigation to identify the cause of the leak — which is a historic assault on the Supreme Court — or even make a reasonable constitutional argument against the draft decision he claims to have read. Rather, he continued to make good on his promise to unify the country by slandering members of the large pro-life community, calling them “extreme” for wanting to return legislative powers to the states.

As the left continues its undemocratic attempts to hide information from the public, conduct political lawfare to negate voters’ choices and federalize our elections, they persist in projecting their unethical behavior onto conservatives.

In 2020, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was forced to apologize for his extreme language after making a direct threat to Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh while speaking to a tumultuous crowd outside the Supreme Court building. The extremist leader of the Senate’s Democrats said, “I want to tell you, Gorsuch; I want to tell you, Kavanaugh; you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”


In 2018, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) famously made open calls for the harassment of politicians, screaming directions at her supporters, demanding, “Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore anywhere.”


Without getting into the summer of destruction or ongoing leftist riots across the nation that were and are completely endorsed by the Democratic Party, or the almost weekly examples of the left’s extremism — from forced experimental gene therapy to crippling the country with shutdowns and tyrannical restrictions — Biden’s attack on conservatives as “extreme” is one made devoid of any self-awareness.

The fact is that the Democratic Party, as currently constructed, is a political organization filled with extremists. Within their ranks are proponents of irreparable genital mutilation for children, anti-White racists and anti-American demagogues who have severely damaged the nation during their short time in power. The next few months will be a masterclass in gaslighting by the media and politicians, with the intention of reframing the debate around lies, smoke and mirrors.

The left is already mobilizing its terrorist elements in response to the leaked draft — which was clearly the purpose of the leak. The coming months will undoubtedly see the extremists out in force to push the Democrats’ agenda with threats of political violence, but the extremists certainly won’t be the “MAGA crowd.”

The Supreme Court’s decision is not extreme at all, and neither is the “MAGA crowd” seeking to restore sanity to the country after extremists on the left have spent decades trying to destroy everything the nation is built on. Despite the left’s delusions to the contrary, the court’s decision is the correction of an “extreme” decision.

In our republic, we vote on the laws we wish to live by, and as Justice Alito put it, “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
