It’s difficult to understand the precise reasoning behind President Donald Trump’s latest claim made at a Tampa, Florida rally on Thursday.
According to Trump, Biden once said that Antifa is an “idea” not an organization. Biden also said that America is an “idea.” Ergo, Biden thinks the United States is Antifa.
It’s the same logic used by first-semester philosophy majors: My dog’s hair is blond. Trump’s hair is blond. Therefore, my dog is president.
Biden speaks about America as not just a country, but a groundbreaking government that had never been attempted in the world when the country was founded.
“America was an idea, an idea,” Biden said on Brene Brown’s podcast last week. “‘We hold these truths to be self-evident.’ We’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before. And I just think we have to be more honest. Let our kids know, as we raise them, what actually did happen. Acknowledge our mistakes so we don’t repeat them.”
“So I think it’s important we teach history, not in a prescriptive way, from my perspective, but what actually the facts were without also acknowledging that there’s 400 years of racism in the United States of America. That’s what it is. And it’s able to be fixed,” he explained.
It’s a similar sentiment that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said when he talks about the American government and the history of the United States.
“America is an idea, not a race,” Graham said, adding that the strength of the United States is its diversity. “I’ve always believed that America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals.”
Antifa is a short word for anti-Fascism. So, if a person doesn’t support Nazis, Hitler and other forms of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism, that would make them an anti-Fascist.

Trump abruptly ends news conference after 1 minute as reporters grill him on conceding
President Donald Trump took one minute out of his day on Tuesday to hold a press conference in which he took credit for gains in the stock market, which came after President-elect Joe Biden's transition was allowed to formally begin.
At his press conference which lasted almost exactly one minute, Trump credited his administration for after the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 30,000 for the first time.
"The stock market, it's just broken 30,000," the president said. "Never broken that number. That's a sacred number. Nobody thought they would ever see it. That's the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it's the 48th time that we have broken records in -- during the Trump administration."
Here’s the best way to pry Trump from the White House — according to a professional hostage negotiator
President Donald Trump is still refusing the concede that he lost the 2020 presidential election, which has prompted some speculation over whether the Secret Service will be forced to drag him out of the White House on January 20th.
In an interview with the Boston Globe, retired NYPD homicide detective Alfred S. Titus, Jr. said that the best way to coax Trump to leave would be to remind him of how great his life was before he decided to run for office back in 2015.
Trump-loving congressman turns himself into a laughingstock with a few deranged tweets
The first thing you should know about Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona is that he shouldn’t be confused with the famous movie villain from “Ghostbusters.”
One of them has been described as a “sadistic, shapeshifting, apocalyptic, cosmic entity.”
The other spelled his name differently and wasn’t a registered Republican.
Paul Gosar is no relation of Gozer the Gozerian. But he’s doing his best movie-villain schtick as part of a cottage industry of loyal subjects vying to carry on the manic mantle of Trumpism.
