Republicans and defenders of life victims of political violence since Biden called Trump supporters a “threat” to the US.

There have been several instances of political violence, many with victims supporting conservative causes, since President Biden warned of the alleged threat that supporters of former President Trump pose to the country, including attacks on anti-abortion activists and political activists and the murder of an 18-year-old in North Dakota.

“Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent extremism that threatens the very foundation of our republic,” President Biden said during a September 1 speech in Philadelphia that drew widespread criticism from conservatives and even some left.

“They promote authoritarian leaders and fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden said of the supporters of the Agenda of the MAGA in his speech.

In the days leading up to the Philadelphia speech, Biden said MAGA Republicans “embrace political violence” and that “their whole philosophy” is “almost like semi-fascism.”
