One of Biden’s staffers must’ve written this statement that condemns violence. I’m betting that Joe didn’t write it. I’m betting that because he isn’t awake that often.

The staffer’s statement starts by saying “The deadly violence we saw overnight in Portland is unacceptable. Shooting in the streets of a great American city is unacceptable. I condemn this violence unequivocally. I condemn violence of every kind by any one, whether on the left or the right. And I challenge Donald Trump to do the same. It does not matter if you find the political views of your opponents abhorrent, any loss of life is a tragedy. Today there is another family grieving in America, and Jill and I offer our deepest condolences.”

This staffer should save the challenge to President Trump. He’s opposed the rioting since the week of the George Floyd riots. To offer historical perspective, those riots started in late May, 2020. Biden’s staffer’s statement was published on August 30, 2020. The next paragraph is pure BS:

We must not become a country at war with ourselves. A country that accepts the killing of fellow Americans who do not agree with you. A country that vows vengeance toward one another. But that is the America that President Trump wants us to be, the America he believes we are.

Whoever this snot-nosed punk is, he/she should be fired immediately for this malicious slander. It isn’t tethered to the truth. It’s BS from start-to-finish. Elected Democrats and BLM/Antifa mobsters are at war with America, not Republicans. Victor Davis Hanson nailed it with this outstanding analysis:

As a country, we must condemn the incitement of hate and resentment that led to this deadly clash. It is not a peaceful protest when you go out spoiling for a fight. What does President Trump think will happen when he continues to insist on fanning the flames of hate and division in our society and using the politics of fear to whip up his supporters? He is recklessly encouraging violence. He may believe tweeting about law and order makes him strong – but his failure to call on his supporters to stop seeking conflict shows just how weak he is. He may think that war in our streets is good for his reelection chances, but that is not presidential leadership–or even basic human compassion.

Joe Biden was silent as a mouse on street violence until he started sinking in the polls. The people in the streets aren’t Republican entrepreneurs. They’re Bernie Sanders/AOC-approved Antifa/BLM activists. These organizations are well-funded by anarchist leftists like George Soros. This doesn’t have anything to do with Republicans.

Donald Trump has been president for almost four years. The temperature in the country is higher, tensions run stronger, divisions run deeper. And all of us are less safe because Donald Trump can’t do the job of the American president.

That’s selective amnesia and then some. The people marching in the streets in 2020 marched in the streets 4 years ago:

After the police chased BLM protesters off the highway, BLM protesters threw concrete blocks from a walking bridge above the highway. Rashad Turner can’t credibly say that BLM’s words were misinterpreted.

    Scrolling down the posts, the LFR theme is to sling it at Biden.

    Trump is not teflon-coated, and much will stick, both ways.

    It will be a dreary thing for the nation. Trump will have locked the Kenosha shooter types, and they likely will give him a high percentage turnout, but how big, really, is that pool?

    Last, is Rand Paul relevant to either side this cycle? It is as if he’s trying but coming out looking bad. Cruz seems surprisingly quiet, so the GOP bet seems entirely on Trump and saying he’s been great. Some folks will buy anything. It was noticeable that McConnell was not a convention figure. Have you, Gary, any idea why? He seems to be the real face of the real GOP. Trump a figurehead, but given power. McConnell the actual real deal. Yes/no?

    Eric, Joe Biden is a disgusting swamp creature. If he weren’t so flawed, I wouldn’t have material to write about. As for President Trump, he’s been crucified for things he’s said but he hasn’t been appreciated for the great things he’s done. I’m just asking for simple fairness from the bought-and-paid-for corporate media. They’ve been on the Democrats’ side since 2003.

    Rand Paul & Tim Scott should both be heroes this cycle. Rand Paul is chief author of the Breona Taylor Act, which would end no-knock warrants. Tim Scott wrote a police reform bill that DC Democrats were frightened of. Every Democrat voted against opening debate on the bill. They voted against it because they didn’t want President Trump to sign a bill.

    McConnell spoke the last night of the RNC so I don’t know what you’re talking about with that.
