79-year-old Joe Biden on Wednesday alleged that the “MAGA crowd” is “the most extreme political organization” in “recent American history.”
His assertion came in response to a question about Monday night’s leak draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito regarding Roe v. Wade.
“This is about a lot more than abortion,” Biden claimed. “The idea that somehow there is no right of privacy … What happens if you have a state that changes the law, saying that children who are LGBTQ can’t be in classrooms with other children?”
“Is that legit under the way the [Supreme Court] decision is written?” he wondered.
“What are the next things that are going to be attacked? Because this MAGA crowd is really the most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history, in recent American history,” the Democrat career politician alleged.
Last month, Biden also asserted, “This ain’t your father’s Republican Party. This is a MAGA party now. These guys are a different breed of cat. They’re not like who I served with so many years. And the people who know better are afraid to act correctly, because they know they’ll be primaried.”

Regarding the draft leak obtained by Politico, Justice Samuel Alito writes in the document, labeled the “Opinion of the Court” for the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
Alito also noted that Americans hold “sharply conflicting views” on the subject. “Some believe fervently that a human person comes into being at conception and that abortion ends an innocent life. Others feel just as strongly that any regulation of abortion invades a woman’s right to control her own body and prevents women from achieving full equality.”
“Still others in a third group think that abortion should be allowed under some but not all circumstances, and those within this group hold a variety of views about the particular restrictions that should be imposed,” he wrote.
