Hours before Joe Biden broadcast seemingly from the gates of hell and declared anyone who disagrees with him to be a violent extremist, his Press Secretary told reporters that those who do not agree with “the majority” are exhibiting “an extreme way of thinking” and must be treated as a threat.
During an exchange on abortion laws, Karine Jean-Pierre stated “When you are not with where the majority of Americans are, then, you know, that is extreme. That is an extreme way of thinking.”
Reporters pushed for more clarification on what exactly ‘extreme’ is and who the label applies to:

"74 million people voted for Trump last time around. You said it's a small number that the White House believes are extremists. Can you give us an idea...what kind of number are we talking about?"— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) September 1, 2022
KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: "We feel like we've touched a nerve."
Branding your political opponents as extremists is unifying:
"You're also facing some criticism, which has been brought up, that [Biden's] aggressive tone is also stoking the divisiveness...any concerns about that?"— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) September 1, 2022

Of course, extremists on the left are not part of the conversation:
"Are there elements of the far-left that also deserve to be either scrutinized or mentioned?"— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) September 1, 2022

The previous day, Jean-Pierre told reporters that “The president thinks there is an extremist threat to our democracy,” adding “The way that he sees is the MAGA Republicans are the most energized part of the Republican party – that extreme, this is an extreme threat to our democracy, to our freedom, to our rights.”
"When it comes to voters, how does the president differentiate between the 'ultra MAGA' folks...and the average GOP voter?"— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) August 31, 2022

Everything that Republicans propose is now apparently extreme.
Just minutes before Biden’s fist clenched address, Jean-Pierre stated that cutting taxes on the middle classes is “extreme”:

This aggressive push comes in the wake of Biden labelling half the country “semi-facist” and telling them that they’re going to need more than guns to take on his government.
