On Saturday, February 13, 2021 President Joe Biden released a statement regarding the acquittal in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump. In the statement, Biden focused on riling up the emotional reaction of the symptoms of our “uncivil society” demonstrated at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, but he did not profess an understanding of the cure for the political polarity that is affecting the United States.
Immediately following the second Trump impeachment trial that showed “doctored” tweets presented by the Impeachment Managers, inciting and hateful speech by Democrat politicians toward then President Trump, and the revelation by the Trump defense of the hypocrisy of the so-called acceptable use of the word ‘fight’ in politics, President Biden wrote that defending the truth and defeating the lies is how we end “this uncivil war and heal the very soul of our nation.”
Here is the full statement from President Joe Biden …
“It was nearly two weeks ago that Jill and I paid our respects to Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, who laid in honor in the Rotunda after losing his life protecting the Capitol from a riotous, violent mob on January 6, 2021.
Today, 57 Senators – including a record 7 Republicans – voted to find former President Trump guilty for inciting that deadly insurrection on our very democracy. The Senate vote followed the bipartisan vote to impeach him by the House of Representatives. While the final vote did not lead to a conviction, the substance of the charge is not in dispute. Even those opposed to the conviction, like Senate Minority Leader McConnell, believe Donald Trump was guilty of a “disgraceful dereliction of duty” and “practically and morally responsible for provoking” the violence unleashed on the Capitol.
Tonight, I am thinking about those who bravely stood guard that January day. I’m thinking about all those who lost their lives, all those whose lives were threatened, and all those who are still today living with terror they lived through that day. And I’m thinking of those who demonstrated the courage to protect the integrity of our democracy – Democrats and Republicans, election officials and judges, elected representatives and poll workers – before and after the election.
This sad chapter in our history has reminded us that democracy is fragile. That it must always be defended. That we must be ever vigilant. That violence and extremism has no place in America. And that each of us has a duty and responsibility as Americans, and especially as leaders, to defend the truth and to defeat the lies.
That is how we end this uncivil war and heal the very soul of our nation. That is the task ahead. And it’s a task we must undertake together. As the United States of America.”
— President Joe Biden
Biden currently faces three reactionary factions responding to the impeachment trial result …
Faction 1. People that believe that Biden is a healer and a respectable leader — especially compared to Trump.
Faction 2. People that are frustrated that Trump was not held accountable because Republicans were cowards and Democrats didn’t boldly persevere with an effective trial toward Trump’s demise.
Faction 3. People that have not given up on Trump and/or populism and don’t trust Joe Biden and progressive Democrats’ sellout to globalism, China and technocracy.
In politics and leadership, everything is 3- or 4-legged stool. Any leg can be taken out from under a leader at any time. Is there a fourth faction that gives Biden stability in his leadership seat, or is he already teetering on a 3-legged stool?
