Link: Biden’s targeting of racist extremism is being portrayed as an attack on the right itself

It’s all overwrought, particularly given what Biden actually said. Biden wasn’t looping Republicans generally in with white supremacists and extremists. Carlson is doing that. Paul is doing that.

But that, too, is part of an established tradition.

I suppose this reaction was predictable. Playing the victim and indulging in (white) grievance is a tactic for stoking rage. Rage begets ratings.
