Fox News host Jesse Watters unloaded on President Joe Biden, accusing him of turning the “War on Terror” into a war on Republicans while adopting the language that had been reserved for terrorists in doing so.
Watters blasted the president during his Monday evening show, arguing that Biden’s language while attacking his political opponents, particularly members of the opposing party, sounded uncannily similar to language used by former President George W. Bush in the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks on American soil.
Watters shared several clips of Democrats recognizing the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 attacks before making an immediate pivot and invoking the January 6 incident at the Capitol. One of these clips included Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas,
“When 9/11 occurred in those — in those years, we were very focused on the foreign terrorist. Now we are seeing an emerging threat, of course over the last several years of the domestic violent extremist, an ideology of hate,” Mayorkas said in the clip. “Antigovernment sentiment. False narratives propagated on online platforms. Even personal grievances.”
“That was a sitting U.S. Senator, the former Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Homeland Security just casually pivoting from 9/11 to January 6. Did you guys notice how casual that was?” Watters observed. “They just said Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is Stephen Miller with a beard.”
“I remember during the Bush years when Democrats would howl at Republicans for ‘politicizing 9/11’ because they wore a little flag pin,” Watters continued.
“Now Democrats declared a war on terror against Republicans on the anniversary of 9/11. What makes you a terrorist again? Because you have personal grievances? Well, I have a personal grievance, is that going to put me on a no-fly list? You are a terrorist for believing in false narratives? If I believe Hunter’s laptop is real, am I going to Gitmo? And the big guy sounds like W., except the enemy is a red hat instead of a box cutter.”
Watters then shared a series of clips side by side, one of former President George W. Bush referring to terrorists and the other of President Joe Biden referring to “MAGA Republicans.” The similarity in the language used is startling.
George W. Bush: “I will not wait on events while dangers gather. I will not stand by as peril draws closer and closer.”
Joe Biden: “I will not stand by and watch. I will not stand by and watch elections in this country stolen by people who simply refuse to accept that they lost.”
George W. Bush: “They embrace tyranny and death as a cause and a creed. We stand for a different choice.”
Joe Biden: “MAGA Republicans have made their choice, they embrace anger, they thrive on chaos, they live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.”
“This is Biden’s war on terror,” Watters concluded. “He’s straight up saying, ‘You’re either with us or you’re against us.’”
