    Joe Biden Tells Morehouse Graduates ‘Extremists’ Are ‘Coming For The Freedoms You Thought Belonged to You’

    President Joe Biden told college graduates on Sunday that “extremists” are trying to take their “freedoms” ahead of the 2024 election.

    During Biden’s Sunday commencement address in front of graduates at Morehouse College, the president noted that an “old ghost and new garments” are trying to seize power in the country.

    Throughout the 2024 race , the Biden campaign has described former President Donald Trump as a direct threat to the continued existence of democracy in the United States. Currently, polling between Biden and Trump is neck-and-neck in various swing state elections.

    In his remarks at Morehouse he alluded to that and more, including hitting Trump for referring to “insurrectionists” who stormed “the capitol with Confederate flags” as “patriots.”

    Republicans also complained about Biden saying that you aren’t allowed to have water when waiting in line to vote in Georgia. Although there are Georgia laws about handing out water to people within a certain distance of the polling place, people are not prevented from having any access to water while waiting in line.

    Well, let’s be clear what happens to you and your family. An old ghost and new garments seize power. Extremists come for the freedoms you thought belong to you and everyone today in Georgia. They won’t allow water to be available to you while you wait in line to vote in the election. What the hell’s that all about? Oh. I’m sure. Think about it.

    And then the constant attacks on black election workers who count your vote. Insurrectionists storming the Capitol with Confederate flags. Are called patriots by some. Not in my house. Black police officers, black veterans protecting the Capitol were called another word. As you recall. They also say out loud, these other groups immigrants poison the blood of our country. Like the Grand Wizard and fascist said in the past.

    But you know. And I know we all bleed the same color. In America, we’re all created equal. Extremists close the doors of opportunity. Strike down affirmative action. Attack the values of diversity, equality and inclusion.
