Josh Hawley (r) [2016 file photo].

Last night:

Josh Hawley @HawleyMO
Joe Biden’s hate-filled and menacing rhetoric tonight was disgraceful. His behavior is increasingly erratic. And his threats against half the country – his fellow citizens – are dangerous

A few more of the responses to Josh Hawley (r):

It’s not like he raised a fist in solidarity with people about to storm the Capitol to stop certification of the 2020 election. Oh…that’s legitimate political discourse.

Problem is not the people calling out those who back violently overthrowing the republic & installing a christofascist authoritarian regime, it is those who back violently overthrowing the republic & installing a christofascist authoritarian regime [….]

[….] If you’re pissed about Biden’s speech, he was talking about you.

You’re offended bc Biden condemned political violence and defended democracy?

Remember that time you exhorted a violent mob to attack the US Capitol? And then were too big a coward to join them and face the consequences?

You’re going to jail and you know it, li’l traitor.

What about championing insurrectionists, Josh? Is that dangerous?

You cheered on insurrectionists and then ran away like a coward

I knew you’d pretend that a defense of patriotism against your seditious, dishonest attacks on our democracy was the problem, not your fascism.

You aren’t half the country, traitor.

Hate-filled?
“…tonight I’m asking our nation to come together, unite behind the single purpose of defending our democracy regardless of your ideology. We’re all called, by duty and conscience, to confront extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else.”

Did it scare you, Joshy-winks? Did you wanna run away? [….]

You know what’s a disgrace – you and the hypocrites aligned with a traitor, josh

I prefer democracy to authoritarianism, decency to fascism, a desire to serve all people over need to serve a small group of special interests. Josh has none of these qualities or desires. #bidenspeech

The GOP is not half the country. Biden calling out fascism is not only appropriate but it’s over due. The majority of Americans are sick and tired of all your hateful rhetoric.

Run along now
[….]

Thanks, Senator Fisting

Somebody went there.

We see it very differently. I thought he just told the truth.

A minority of republicans is not half the country, Josh. It is telling, however, that his condemnation of fascism and violence has you so upset. Very telling.

That speech was heartfelt, passionate and necessary.

History will remember on which side you stood

“Make America Great Again” – in Russian.

Refusing to let a minority destroy our democracy by promising riots if they have to accept valid elections and legal consequences is not threatening half the country.

You’re lying and projecting.

Joe Biden called out fascists tonight. If you think that’s “menacing,” what does that say about you?
And the MAGA fascists are about 12 % of the country, Josh. They’re the ones threatening us. And we’re done with them.

He’s only against fascists. Know any? Oh, hey, it’s you.
[….]

Read slowly…
“…tonight I’m asking our nation to come together, unite behind the single purpose of defending our democracy regardless of your ideology. We’re all called, by duty and conscience, to confront extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else.”

“If you’re complaining about a speech condemning fascism, it might be time for a long look in the mirror.”

By the way, are you ‘running out’ of excuses for Trump?
[….]

I see you spreading love and peace…nope

You could be talking about yourself and SO many of your colleagues. The mirrors are being held up to you all. And none of you like it. Almost as if, when criticised, you all turn into, I dunno, flakes of snow?

Not at all, Josh. It’s your behavior that’s been consistently disgraceful

Hypocrite much?

I am so proud of Pres. Biden. He called you and your people what you are. Fascists.

No threats. He just called MAGA out for what it is.
And now your feelings are hurt.
[….]

The confederacy wasn’t a big fan of Lincoln either.

You’re upset, Josh. Have you tried running away?
