Biden seeks to flip the script on ‘freedom’ in 2024
by Brett Samuels - 05/02/23 6:00 AM ET


President Biden is flipping the script on Republicans by casting himself as the protector of “freedom,” going on offense by using a word and concept conservatives have frequently cited to push back on the president and his party.

Biden’s campaign launch video was titled “Freedom,” and he referenced “freedom” or “freedoms” six times over the course of the clip. The campaign’s first official ad used those words seven times.

The president’s team has used the term aggressively to tie Republicans, and in particular his political foe Donald Trump, to the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol that some in the GOP have been reluctant to condemn and to highlight GOP efforts to curb abortion access and squash dissent in statehouses.

“It’s pretty clear the strategy here is going to be, ‘Republicans are coming after our freedoms and our ability to do X, Y and Z,” said one Democratic strategist. “Those are typically talking points Republicans use, so we are playing on their turf and winning.”

The effort puts Biden on a collision course with Trump, former Vice President Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who all frequently talk about freedom even as their visions for the country diverge sharply with Biden’s.

Biden has been embracing the idea of freedom and pitching himself as the candidate most willing to defend basic freedoms in the early days of his 2024 campaign.

The same guy who tried to force a vaccine mandate on the public and create a Disinformation Czar going to lecture us on freedom???
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

And he will likely have the media's full complicity in doing so. Prepare yourselves.

The only "freedoms" supported by Democrats are not freedoms at all: killing your unborn children, and sexualizing the living ones.
"The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left Alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them, are over. -Alexander Solzhenitsyn

"Your right to swing your arms ends just where the other man's nose begins."  American leftists want freedom without accountability.  Unfortunately, we have a ton of conservatives who think the government should never be used to push back on abusers.  You cannot sit out the culture war ... the culture war will find you.

Biden did force a vaccine mandate on the public ----- and he still controls information, even without a czar.

I just saw a commercial were Biden and the Democrats are running claiming that he’s going to be the defender of our democracy and freedom

We are well over a year from the next presidential election.

Freedom is not a Conservative idea.

Conservatives hail liberty.

Liberty has responsibilities.
Freedom has consequences.

Individual liberty and personal responsibility are inextricably linked together. You simply cannot have one without the other.
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."
- J. R. R. Tolkien

The commercial that Biden‘s Team is running against both DeSantis and Trump as threats to freedom

Their strategy is to define both Trump and Ron DeSantis early. That means Team Biden doesn’t believe that Trump is the inevitable nominee so they’re covering their bases
