Biden meant what he said, and his defilement of Independence Hall was symbolic and intentional.
There have been speeches like that before, but not in the United States. And speeches like that tend to be followed by persecution.
Censorship, character assassination, and imprisonment without due process are already happening. Increased violence is likely to follow. There are a large number of people who agree with what Biden said, and there are organized groups such as Antifa and BLM willing to commit violence to meet the same ends, and they know they can do it with impunity.
Blogger Ace of Spades pulled a definition of “stochastic terrorism” from Wikipedia:

Biden is not working alone.
It’s intended to help the Left’s midterm goals. What major donor is going to give money to a MAGA candidate, when his home or business could be burned down by Antifa? Does anyone want their home invaded by the FBI – or one of the 87,000 new IRS agents? How about nationwide character assassination by the MSM?
The hard left would rather be feared than trusted. Everything they do, from invading reporter’s homes, to refusing to protect Supreme Court Justices works toward that end.
Biden and his allies will use this speech to justify what they do next, and that is yet to be known.
