Mullin' It Over Column
An Invitation to Joe Biden
Washington, September 7, 2022
Last week, Joe Biden stood in front of a crowd in Pennsylvania and delivered one of the most divisive speeches I have ever heard from an American president.
Joe Biden ran a presidential campaign supposedly based on unity. This speech was anything but unifying. Instead of offering solutions to the many crises his administration has created, Biden chose to attack and further divide his fellow Americans. He pushed blame onto his predecessor and pointed fingers at the 74 million Americans who exercised their right to vote for the presidential candidate of their choice. He politicized our military, displaying two U.S. Marines in the background himself as he delivered his scathing and purely political words.
Joe Biden said it is “MAGA Republicans” who are the biggest threat to our democracy. This claim comes from the leader of the party pushing our country closer and closer to socialism, hoping to erode the foundation on which our nation was built. Socialism is the true threat to our democracy and to our Constitutional freedoms. It makes me sick.
Our economy was thriving under President Trump. Our military was strong; our adversaries knew not to mess with us. We were energy independent, able to provide affordable and reliable power. Our border was secure. There is nothing wrong with wanting to Make America Great Again. For all Americans— not just for one party.
I invite Joe Biden to visit Trump-loving Oklahoma. In the Sooner State, we put America first. Our farmers and ranchers feed and clothe our communities. Our domestic producers power our homes. Thousands of small businesses exemplify the American Dream. Further, our state is home to over 300,000 veterans who have put their lives on the line for the beliefs we hold so dear, understanding what it is to be a patriot-loving American.
Joe Biden owes all red states and Trump supporters an apology. I’ll be waiting.
