Is this Joe Biden’s America? Or Donald Trump’s America?
Certainly, America is deeply divided today. But every bit of the horrifying images and footage of burning, looting and violence we see today comes exclusively from Joe Biden’s America.
The carnage in Joe Biden’s America is the result of Democrat mayors and governors unwilling and unable to stand up to the lawless, rioting mob that outwardly claims it is motivated by the very same fevers and political positions that motivate Mr. Biden himself.
In fact, Mr. Biden’s vice presidential pick, Sen. Kamala Harris, worked so hard to ingratiate herself with the increasingly unruly mob that she went on record a few weeks back raising money “to help post bail” for those arrested during the riots — riots they now claim to oppose.
At the very least, you would think that Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris might want to stand up for peaceful demonstrators who have a constitutional right to gather peacefully and to express their grievances over police behavior or anything else. After all, those truly peaceful demonstrators are among the first victims of the violent, raging mobs burning American cities today.
It is worth noting that the chief suspect in the apparent murder of a man in Portland this weekend was out on the street (armed with a gun) despite a recent arrest on a gun charge and a warrant for his arrest on a separate gun charge. If all this bears out, then the prosecutors and politicians who allowed this mayhem to rage out of control literally have blood on their hands.
Not a single one of those politicians supports Mr. Trump. Every one is a Biden supporter.
Even the unhinged, wacko media doesn’t try to claim that Trump supporters are firebombing police stations and assaulting innocent citizens these days.
Video captured last week outside the Republican convention showed an elderly man walking down the street hoping to watch fireworks from outside the White House. He was cussed out, threatened, chased, assaulted, bloodied and knocked to the ground.
For simply walking down the street. To see fireworks. Over the White House. In America.
And now — finally — Joe Biden emerges from underneath his campaign rock to deliver a speech.
He now says he is opposed to violence and looting and firebombing of police stations — though, curiously, he declined to call out specifically who is behind all the mayhem.
You know, Joe wouldn’t want to offend anyone. I mean, especially since they are all voting for — oh, I don’t know — Joe Biden! Instead, he blamed all of it on, you guessed it, Donald Trump. Is there anything these people won’t politicize for personal, political gain?
Hilariously, Mr. Biden insisted that these scenes are not “Joe Biden’s America.” They’re “Donald Trump’s America.”
In other words, I don’t smell like poopy! You smell like poopy! Times a million!
What a baby. Just like all the ungovernable babies rioting in the streets.
They suck at life. They are too lazy to work. They are too pathetic to do something constructive with their lives. They get their feelings hurt. They are angry. They are stupid potheads.
So they run into the street and start fires and loot stores and beat up innocent citizens. Mr. Biden is their perfect leader. Every last one of them should be rounded up and thrown in jail until their early-life temper-tantrum has run its course.
They should be allowed out of prison only on the condition that they get a job. And find a sponsor. This will be a tall order since even their own mothers probably don’t want a thing in the world to do with them.
You would think that no matter how dumb a guy is, he might learn at least something during a 49-year career as a politician in Washington. But not Joe Biden.
“Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters?” he asked Monday. “Really?”
I don’t know, Joe. Do you?
