Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden has sat silent while roving bands of outlaws tore American cities to shreds. He said nothing when an Antifa leader in Portland called for “the abolition of the United States as we know it.” His own vice-presidential pick, Kamala Harris, grinned as she warned that the riots are “not gonna stop. And they should not.”
Until about five minutes ago, Harris and Biden thought they could use the Marxist revolutionaries of BLM and Antifa as their own pet militia. They thought that once the brownshirts had made a hellscape of America, they could come sailing in to convince voters that Grandpa Joe and Mamala were going to make it all better.
But now that this “strategy” (read: protection racket) is failing electorally, Biden wants to put the insurrection back in the bag. In what I suppose counts for him as being quick on the uptake, Joe has announced that he plans to visit Kenosha, WI on Thursday after more than a week of ruinous looting, arson, and violence there. Trump already visited on Tuesday. He strode through the rubble and condemned the rioters as what they are: domestic terrorists, lavishly funded and egged on by a national coalition consisting of BLM, Antifa, and the Democratic Party.
It seems Biden has at last lurched toward the realization that this is a good look for Trump, and a bad look for him. So now he’s off to Kenosha to “hold a community meeting…to bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face.” The Biden team has also released, a few days before the visit, a halfhearted new ad in which Joe pitifully mimics Trump’s own robust law-and-order rhetoric. Biden is attempting something like political acrobatics here: he wants suddenly to condemn mob violence while also pinning it—get this—on the Donald. “If I were president my language would be less divisive,” Biden declares. “I’d be looking to lower the temperature in this country, not raise it!”
That poor man. Biden, I mean. At this point one can hardly imagine he holds even the faintest conviction that what he’s saying bears any connection to reality. Even with his buddies in the press running cover on this nonsense, it simply does not wash. Biden’s team has obviously realized that wanton destruction of life and property do not, uh, poll well with the American public at large. Maybe they’ve been listening to CNN’s Don Lemon, who got hot under the collar recently when he noticed the riots are “showing up in the polling.”
So Biden and the Dems are pivoting to a firmer stance on looting and violence. And truly, it almost makes one sorry for them. It’s quite the spectacle to see a presidential candidate fall so woefully into the clutches of his own crime syndicate that he can’t even sputter his way through a convincing repudiation of open lawlessness. Can he really stand there with his face hanging out and tell us all the toppled statues of Founding Fathers, all the calls to defund the police, all the chanting caravans rolling through quiet American suburbs are part of a violent uprising by *checks notes*…right-wing extremists?
Oh, no no no. Too late, Sleepy Joe: those arsonists and those gunmen and those revolutionaries you bankrolled as hired thugs? They own you now.
In an attempt to cut out the middleman and not waste everyone’s time, Democrats announced today that they will be taking part in the debates, but they will just have Trump debate Biden’s teleprompter directly.
The move is expected to save a lot of time as there won’t be long, rambling, unintelligible rants or completely incoherent sentences coming from the Democratic candidate.
The teleprompter will display all of Biden’s handlers’ carefully worded talking points. Trump will give his own points and respond to everything displayed on the screen, translated to audio via text-to-speech for the convenience of the debaters and the audience.
After the new information came to light, Republicans ran debate prep with the president, having him debate a mock-up of Biden’s teleprompter.
“I’m Joe Biden, and I’m running for president,” the teleprompter said in a robotic voice.
“What’s this?” Trump said, confused. “Did Sleepy Joe lose weight? Look at this chump! Total pushover!”
“That hurt my feelings,” the teleprompter said.
“THIS will hurt your feelings, dumb robot!” Trump replied, lunging over the desk and throttling the device.
Republicans are now considering sending their own te
Which is one of the real reasons the dem fraudsters didn’t want Trump to go with the other one being they are deathly afraid of Uncle Pervy being put of his basement where he can embarrass himself even more.
And the dems told Trump his visit would backfire, but it didn’t. One of the people Biden is meeting with is Blake’s father. Low and behold, he is a rabid anti-Semite as proven by numerous Facebook posts. Now what is Biden supposed to do? Cancel the meeting and he looks like an opportunist. Goes on with the meeting and he will be joined at the hip with an anti-Semite. Talk about backfiring!
Is that what his VP saying the riots will continue was intended to accomplish… “lower the temperature”?
Not only have they enabled and unleashed the terror (thanks to their ineptitude or reluctance to enforce laws and protect innocent citizens) so that the lesson that violent insurrection is not going to be permitted will have to be taught over and over and over, resulting in even more human tragedy. Hopefully, those NEEDING to be hurt will be those hurt the most.
