President Joe Biden, during a speech in Pennsylvania, ridiculed “brave right-wing” Americans who say guns are needed to defy government hyperbole.
Biden was at a campaign stop on his Safer America tour when he made the comments.
“For those brave right-wing Americans who say it’s all about preserving America, keeping America independent and safe, if you’re going to fight the country, you need an F-15. You need something more than a weapon.” said Biden.
“No, I’m not kidding, think about it, think about the rationale that we used, that’s used,” he added.
Critics of the president reacted on social media.
“The president has been saying that for years, but it’s becoming increasingly inconsistent with how even his own administration has evolved. How many F-15s did the Taliban have when Biden decided to hand over Afghanistan to them?” answered Stephen Gutowski.
“That’s the logic of an authoritarian. ‘We have bombs and rockets, you wouldn’t stand a chance. No,” answered Congressional candidate Blake Masters.
“Pure provocation. We don’t need or want violence, we will defeat this regime at the ballot box, that’s what they fear most, that’s why they’re trying to provoke us. Don’t take the bait, yourself at all levels of the political process engage!” tweeted Congressional candidate Joe Kent.
“Did the sitting President of the United States just say he’s ready to use the military against the citizens?” read another answer.
Others pointed this out the irony von Biden, on the one-year anniversary of his order to withdraw the US military from Afghanistan, said it takes more than guns to fight the US government.
Biden made similar comments in June 2021, but added that Americans “may need some nuclear weapons” to fight the US government.
