Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is expected to issue an address Monday on the ongoing riots and violence in several major cities, but he is planning to connect the unrest to President Donald Trump rather than to leftist agitators who have been captured on camera and appear in arrest records, according to a report from the New York Times.
Biden, the Times says, will give the speech from an “undisclosed location” — likely either Minneapolis, Minnesota, or Kenosha, Wisconsin — to “condemn violence, and to note that chaos has unfolded” under President Donald Trump.
“Mr. Biden, who has been a firm supporter of peaceful protests, is expected to travel on Monday to condemn violence and to note that chaos has unfolded on Mr. Trump’s watch, according to someone familiar with his plans,” The New York Times said Sunday. “He is also expected to charge more broadly that the president is seeking to change the subject from the coronavirus and economic challenges the country faces. Details of his Monday plans weren’t immediately clear.”
Democrats and progressive activists have been adamant that the recent unrest in places like Kenosha, Minneapolis, and Portland, Oregon, has happened on President Trump’s watch — a sentiment that seems to suggests they believe Trump should take more active measures to contain the violence.
The excuse also seems to defy video evidence, which largely shows left-leaning activist groups targeting conservatives. On Thursday, footage emerged of protesters in Washington, D.C., harassing Trump supporters leaving the president’s Republican nomination acceptance speech. As The Daily Wire reported earlier Sunday, a Trump supporter appears to have been targeted and killed by suspected anarchists in Portland, Oregon, overnight.
In a speech to the National Guard Association of the United States over the weekend, Biden made his first effort at pinning unrest on Trump, claiming that Trump was dispatching the military and encouraging the deployment of National Guard troops to act out personal vendettas.
We’ve seen over the past few years that Democrats are pretty good at ignoring or suppressing evidence that does not serve them. If Trump was responsible for the “unrest”, which strangely only occurs in Democrat-run cities, then the Democrats would quickly put it down. Instead, they excuse it and promote it. Biden’s addressing of the ongoing violence is much like his plan for addressing COVID19; three months late.
One talent the Democrats seem to have lost is the ability to come up with valid excuses for their failures.
I guess the NYT has to leak out what Biden’s message is in advance so those listening to him will be able to decipher his message from his garbled gibberish.
Weird stealth campaign stop.
Why not just stay in his basement if that’s how he travels?
We all love those.
You pull a permit and, in the fine print is the obligation to stay where you’re supposed to stay in space and time as well as PAY for all police overtime required by your protest.
Anything else is an ILLEGAL ASSEMBLY, “peaceful” or not.
But who have been tearing up Portland for 100 nights?
All by themselves, it has been the LEFT.
The bombed out – looking zone they’ve left behind had nothing to do with the drug OD death of George Floyd.
Their narrative has been exposed.
They’ve been tearing up and stealing and burning down over a lie the media has helped spread.
joe biden is the last person people should take any advice from. His entire political life has been a failure.
It is time for President Trump, after yesterday’s attack on peaceful Trump supporters in Portland, to enact the Insurrection Act of 1807. Denial of support offered by President Trump in cities where violence is burgeoning out of control, Portland, Washington DC and Kenosha.
Round up the bad people on one side of the protests, ie blm and antifa, and lock them up under military guard….
Biden to speak on riots today.
I wonder if he’s speaking to Kamala.
She’s still very pro-riot, pro-violence, pro-arrest-then-bailed-release.
His 180 looks like he blows with the wind and says whatever his handlers tell him to say.
She can’t play that.
She’s supposed to be the one who has brains still in her head.
What to do…..
@Nan G: They just react to polls. They thought the violence would help them and when it shows public support holding them accountable and turning against them, NOW they want to weakly “denounce” it.
Biden with Stupid and Dumb stamped all over his face
breaking news headlines: can paedophile joe pin this on Trump?
The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has issued a statement declaring all Black™ tires are a symbol of Systemic Racism™, particularly when placed on a white car.
“Black™ tires symbolize the oppression of Black™ people all over the world, and particularly in the United States.
Black™ tires symbolize that this nation was built on the backs of Black People™. Black™ tires carry all imaginable loads, from bicycle riders to multi-trailer tractor trailers to heavy mining equipment and the largest aircraft.
We acknowledge that Goodyear’s white brand name on a Black™ tire is also symbolic of slaves being branded like cattle. Black™ tires are bought and sold in the same manner that slaves were bought and sold.
When a tire blows out, it’s a symbol of how slaves often died at the hands of slave masters.
When the tread comes off, it’s a symbol of how slaves were whipped until their skin hung loose on their bodies.
When the tread wears off, it’s a symbol of slaves being worked to death.
When the tires are no longer useful, they are simply thrown away, just like Black People™.
Goodyear seeks to have a Responsible Corporate Culture™ and to help to end this Systemic Racism™ that pervades all levels of society.
We are re-examining our business model and seeking ways to end this obvious injustice.
