Obama’s favourite puppet, Joe Biden, has said that he and the former President decided to break their silence about President Trump’s performance after what happened in Charlottesville a year ago. Biden stated:
“We have leaders who at the time when that occurred, when these guys were accompanied by white supremacists and Ku Klux Klan … making a comparison saying there are good people in both groups…What has become of us? Our children are listening. Our silence is complicity.”
On August 12th, 2017, Unite the Right protesters organised a protest, obtaining an official legal permit to do so, over the removal of a General Lee statue standing in Emancipation Park (previously called Lee Park). The left’s violent Communist arm, known as Antifa, came to counter-protest the presence of Unite the Right. They also had obtained an official permit.
Both groups came with weapons: rifles, knives, bricks, knuckledusters, you name it. But the height of the clash came when a troubled, 20 year old schizophrenic, one James Alexander Fields, drove his Dodge into a group of Antifa protesters, tragically killing a woman named Heather Heyer and wounding 19 others. Fields claimed that he had been chased to his car by Antifa thugs who were throwing bricks and beating his Dodge Challenger with batons. I have no doubt that this is true, though it hardly justifies murderously putting his foot down on the gas and running his Dodge into a crowd of people.
This whole affair was pure, nihilistic thuggery pouring out of the extreme elements of the Right and the Left. Many questions have been deeply concerning about the lack of police interference from the beginning of that day, when both groups clashed violently in the morning, long before the scheduled protests were even due to start. By the time that police started to arrest people if they didn’t leave, calling the protest an “unlawful assembly,” a state of emergency in Charlottesville had to be declared.
President Trump’s initial statement that evening about what had taken place in Charlottesville was correct:
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides, on many sides….This has been going on for a long, long time… It has no place in America.”
Violence was most assuredly on both sides – and had been for a long time. I fail to see why President Trump’s statement became so controversial, though I admit he could have named Neo Nazi thugs out loud, along with also naming Antifa thugs.
But now we have Biden and Obama claiming that this was the moment they decided not to remain silent on President Trump’s performance anymore, as if Obama has any moral high-ground after a Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on a baseball practise of Republican lawmakers, seriously maiming Steve Scalise and wounding five others. At least Sanders condemned the shooting unequivocally, while Obama kept his precious silence. Had Scalise been a liberal black man we might’ve seen a more vocal ex-President.
When he was President, Obama spoke after a black Dallas shooter murdered five police officers in a fit of racist rage. Obama tried to condemn the act then, but not before he blabbered on about “racial disparities in our criminal justice system.” He also took that same moment to level a criticism of the Second Amendment by referencing the prevalence of “powerful weapons”…. but hey! “Today our focus is on the victims…” he said. Why didn’t he just make it about the goddamn victims, instead of about the cops being racists and the evils of the Second Amendment?
So with this one-sided history, Trump’s “both sides” condemnation is so heinous to Biden and Obama how exactly?
When Trump took office he swore an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States. The First Amendment of that Constitution (not to mention the Second) allows for people, neo-Nazi fascists and masked Antifa blackshirts included, to espouse their vile rhetoric no matter how disgusting we may find it to be. He didn’t take a position on their stupid ideas, he took a position on their stupid violence. What else is he meant to do as President?
This latest bleat by Biden, is Obama (using Biden as his mouthpiece) scrabbling around for an excuse to come out of the usual ex-statesman’s discretion closet to condemn a current president when he should just do as his predecessor, George Bush, did and leave political matters up to the new President. But he can’t help himself. Hell! It’s not as if Obama has a real estate empire or a self-made business to oversee and get involved with once again. He is nothing but a racially motivated ‘community organiser’ going back to what he does best – Social Justice Worrying, all the while looking for some kind of noble sounding excuse to not move on and let the election results of 2016 stand.
