Biden Shredded For Saying Italy’s Election of Giorgia Meloni is Proof Democrats Must Win to Save Democracy: ‘Has She Raided Her Opponents Yet?’

President Biden was on the receiving end of a fair bit of criticism after claiming the election of Giorgia Meloni in Italy is evidence that “democracy is at stake” and Democrats must be elected to save it.

Meloni, a right-wing politician, became the first woman elected prime minister in Italy. While that would normally be something the left would celebrate, the fact that she is a conservative means they must demonize her.

“Well, folks, you know — and I mean this sincerely; you’re going to think this is a little out of whack, what I’m going to talk about — but, you know, democracy is at stake,” Biden told those in attendance during a Democratic Governors Association political fundraiser.

“Literally, there’s a — there’s a case being made around the world, not just here, because democracy and autocracy.”

One such case, according to Biden, was Italy’s elections.

“You just saw what’s happened in Italy in that election. You’re seeing what’s happening around the world,” the President asserted. “And the reason I bother to say that is we can’t be sanguine about what’s happening here, either. I don’t want to exaggerate it, but I don’t want to understate it.

“And it’s the reason why I’m so concerned about and so interested in and so committed to seeing that the governors — Democratic governors — are elected,” said Biden.

Biden Says Election of Giorgia Meloni Means Only Democrats Can Save Democracy

Critics swiftly offered backlash to Biden’s comments that the election of his political adversaries such as soon-to-be Italian PM Giorgia Meloni was evidence that “democracy is at stake.”

“The only way to protect democracy is by voting the way we tell you to!” columnist Eddie Zipperer tweeted.


National Review columnist Pradheep J. Shanker pointed out that President Biden is casting doubt on a democratic election and simultaneously ranting about saving democracy.


PJ Media columnist Stacey Lennox added to the criticism of Biden’s comment on Giorgia Meloni.

“‘Threat to democracy’ means anyone who disagrees with the internationalist Left,” she wrote. “If you want a sovereign nation not governed by unelected international elites, somehow that is anti-democratic.”

Biden, Who Raids His Political Opponent’s Homes, Says ‘Democracy is at Stake’

Perhaps the most effective takedown of Biden’s remarks claiming the free and fair election of Giorgia Meloni means “democracy is at stake” comes from Human Events senior editor Jack Posobiec.

“Last time I checked, Giorgia Meloni still hasn’t taken office and hasn’t done anything,” Posobiec fired back in response.

“Has she ever forced biomedical edicts on anyone? No, she has not,” he continued. “Has she ever called for the vast, massive censorship of the internet? No, she has not, particularly when it comes to her opposition.”

“Has she raided opposition candidates and locked up opposition protestors, no she has not.”

President Biden has done all of these things.


“President Biden does that all the time, by the way,” said Posobiec. “He’s constantly raiding the opposition.”

“They’re getting raided so much – Biden’s raiding so many members of the opposition that we’re all starting to get used to it,” he added. “It’s starting to enter into some normalcy phase.”

The Department of Justice and FBI just conducted an aggressive dawn raid on the home of a pro-life advocate in Pennsylvania.

Two top aides to former President Donald Trump had their cellphones seized while roughly 40 other associates were issued subpoenas as part of the Justice Department’s investigation into the January 6 riot at the Capitol – just weeks before the midterm elections.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell was raided.

And, of course, we all saw what happened in Mar-a-Lago.

“We understand that there are other parts of this world … Where this happens all the time,” Posobiec concluded, hinting that the United States under President Biden is turning into a third-world dictatorship.

  • Just what in particular is this "democracy" that biden and the democrat party are so desperate to "save"? Is democracy their code name for their particular brand of corruptocrat socialism?

  • I'm Praying the FBI Does't Come Raining Down On Me For That Last Opinion.
    First Ammendment or What ?, I Like The Second Ammendment Better In These Times Anyway. Second Amendment, ratified in 1791, was proposed by James Madison to Allow The Creation of Civilian Forces That Can Counteract a "Tyrannical Federal Government".

  • I think Presideng Joe biden is an Old Man who Is Deminished In His Abbilities to Control the United States of America the Way It Needs Done. A Great Example of A Poor Leader. Sorry Mr. Biden Buy It's True and You Can't Deny It.

  • Biden is the main reason the U.S,A. is in the turmoil it's in with record setting inflation, crime in the streets, and sending money to Ukraine in stead of helping our citizens first. He needs to worry more about what's going on here instead of elsewhere. Democracy will take care of itself after mid-terms when most of these brain-dead idiots are voted out of office.

    • biden has to send money to ukraine. If he didn't they could spill the beans about his and hunter's corrupt dealings in that country.

  • Joe Biden couldn't find his butt with a road map and if he did, he wouldn't make a pimple on a good President's butt.

  • There is one of the biggest threats to the Republic and the World sitting ( illegally ) in the Whitehouse ! Biden is out to turn the rest of the world against the US and even NATO, as fast as he can, the Globalist are using this Braindead wooden puppet, to push the World into a War! . He's carrying on the job started by Obama,( that was disrupted by the election of Donald Trump. ) with the sole intent of creating Soros " Open Society " they have the main belief that " One World Government, One World Leader" will save the world, The NWO, The Democrats best friend!

  • joe cannot sniff her hair way over there
    he's the threat TO EVERYTHING in the world and the world itself

  • On the contrary , she is a shining light , "a beacon of hope" if only America could have such people with principles God , Country , Family

    Justin Trudeau has yet to congratulate her , the left fear her
