Joe Biden has thus far tried to avoid the backdrop of cities burned by people who largely support him over President Trump in the looming election.
In an effort to not be outdone by President Trump, Biden will venture from his basement to Kenosha Wisconsin to peruse the rubble and, perhaps, again denounce the senseless and horrendous violence occurring across the country.
Conservative commentator, Ben Shapiro, noted that in his recent speech in Pittsburgh, Biden did step up to make a comment that was widely lauded by the media, although already known by nearly all humanity: Violence is bad.
Shapiro emphasized that, curiously, Biden did not identify the perpetrators of the violence he supposedly condemned. In fact, Biden literally justified the arguments the rioters present as the reason for their riots!
Meanwhile, President Trump has condemned the riots, looting and mayhem that has plagued Democrat led cities across the country and offered federal force to subdue the rioters and give citizens back their cities, safe access to their jobs, their stores, their doctors.
Democratic leaders in these cities have rejected Trump’s offers of federal aid, primarily because they’re coming from Donald Trump. Then, they make the audacious claim that all the rioting is actually Trump’s fault.
The media treated Joe Biden’s statement as a unifying, presidential statement. Shapiro said this is reminiscent of the treatment the media gave Barrack Obama when Obama would make incredibly divisive statements on issues ranging from race to riots and then the media would say, ‘oh, didn’t he just bring the country together.’
“Obama had a gift of speaking so incredibly vaguely such that you could project your feelings onto him. And Joe Biden is a great front man for exactly the same thing.”
And that’s exactly what Joe Biden is – a Front Man.
In his speech in Pittsburgh, he jousted with the listeners when he asked, “Do I look like a radical?” in response to statements Trump has made about Biden being a puppet of Sanders and the Democratic left and that he’ll lead the country to radical socialism.
Of course, Biden doesn’t look radical, He just looks like the front man that is put out front because he doesn’t look radical, but is actually the main puppet being manipulated by radical puppeteers.
Shapiro said that Biden did not condemn those rioters associated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa for the violence and ruin they’ve perpetrated shows Biden’s lack of moral courage. An act of moral courage would be to call them out as evil.
The press demanded as much of Trump over Charlottesville, and Trump did in his response, according to Shapiro.
Shapiro pointed out that Biden cited ‘right-wing militias,’ ‘white nationalists’ and ‘white supremacists’ as behind the acts of violence across the country. He never cited Black Lives Matter or Antifa in his speech.
The left has said that silence is violent and that it’s important to ‘say their names,’ but Joe Biden failed to say the names of the groups committing the violence.
Biden cited President Trump as responsible for the rioting and looting, that police brutality was responsible for the rioting and the looting, that white nationalists and right-wing militias are responsible for the rioting and looting. He did not mention race activists or radical communists and anarchists having any culpability at all.
Biden first cited, “Unwarranted police shooting, excessive force…” as the kind of violence that needs to be quelled in our country. He branded the police as the problem. Then, he first cited Jacob Blake as a poor victim of this violence.
Conveniently he didn’t acknowledge that the reason the police were speaking with Blake on that fateful date was because the police had been summoned because Blake had violated a restraining order and also allegedly again violated a woman he had previously sexually assaulted and domestically abused for which there were outstanding warrants for Blake’s arrest.
Whose side is Biden on?
The answer to that question is, ‘It doesn’t matter’ because tomorrow he’ll be on a different side if it’s expedient for him.
