President Biden is correct. The Soul of America is a repudiation of everything Trump

President Joe Biden is a brilliant political tactician.  By isolating and identifying the MAGA Republicans as the rot inflecting the body politic, he's giving conservatives an out.  A way to escape the stronghold Traitor Trump has on the GOP and its lickspittle leadership.

It will infuriate the likes of Major Traitor Greene but, she's exactly the one who's aided terrorists and attempted to overthrow the US Government on January 6th.

I'm certain Twitter is a flame with livid Magats.  Denouncing President Biden.  Let's Going Brandon. Wallowing in their crocodile tears about civility and cloaking themselves in the mantle of false grievances, petulantly shouting, and making threats of violence.  As President Biden stated, "good manners is nothing they’ve ever suffered from."

(As an aside President Biden calmly talking through the Magats hootin' and hollerin', playing a megaphone siren and the "good manners" remark vs. Traitor Trump encouraging violence demonstrates the difference.)

But, If President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris had done nothing since the 2020 election but slow the rising tide of Fascism coming from the MAGA Republicans his Presidency would have been a success, but, the legislation he's helped pass with the august guidance from Senate Leader Chuck Schumer and Speaker Pelosi in the slenderly controlled Senate and House make his Presidency the best of this century and the best since FDR.

President Biden spoke to the Soul of the Nation.  The GOP Soul was consumed by Trump but, for many years Republicans set the table for a Trump to arrive.  President Biden laid it out clearly,

But there is no question that the Republican Party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country. 
And I believe it is my duty — my duty to level with you, to tell the truth no matter how difficult, no matter how painful. 
And here, in my view, is what is true: MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution.  They do not believe in the rule of law.  They do not recognize the will of the people. 
The hard truth as President Biden stated MAGA Republicans don't believe in America;  Conservatives want to engage in political violence.  Conservatives love lies and hate America.  Conservatives yearn to destroy the United States of America and replace it with a simulacrum; a Reactionary Apartheid State of White Supremacy, Bigotry, and Fundamentalist Terrorism.

But, President Biden does believe in America.  He's doing a damn fine job as President.  I hope my fellow Americans can help him along the way.  Voting in the 2022 elections is just the first step.  There's a lot of work that needs to be done to repair the damage Trump and his cabal of grifters, sleaze buckets, thieves, and fanatics wrought.  Let's help President Biden along the way to reclaiming the Soul of the Nation.

If you think about it, he's been giving them a way out since 2009 when he helped Arlen Spector step to the light. Spector was key to getting the ACA passed. He's still giving them a way out but they won't take it. They hate everything!

Conservatives can not admit they have been bamboozled for decades and now we have so many generations who have listened to, absorbed and bought into rightwing propaganda that they are in a self-bamboozling loop. Additionally, Villains like Dick Flashing Boebert and Major Traitor Greene and Pedo M Gaetz are hell bent on getting their slice of the pie and won't ever stop fanning the flames of fascism.
