(Liberty Bell) – You thought it was bad when Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters a “Basket of Deplorables”?
Now Biden’s just calling us flat-out an “armed militia.”
I’m sorry, has he noticed how his supporters are acting lately?
Former Vice President Joe Biden has referred to President Donald Trump’s supporters as “an armed militia in this country” during his already pathetic and incoherent speech on violence in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Monday afternoon (which he notably gave from somewhere other than Kenosha, Wisconsin, where Trump is actually visiting.)
Biden said, according to Breitbart:
This president, long ago, forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. You know, he may believe mouthing the words “law and order” makes him strong. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is. Does anyone believe there’ll be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?
He did not specify whether he meant any one group of Trump supporters or just all Trump supporters.
If we were an armed militia, doesn’t he think that we would have already squashed the threat that his supporters have been posing to communities around the country for months now?
The former vice president, who will face Trump in November as the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party, spoke after a weekend in which a Trump supporter was shot and killed in downtown Portland.
That supporter was also a member of a right-wing group, Patriot Prayer, which is not a militia.
Biden may have been referring to accusations, yet unproven, that 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who shot three and killed two people during a riot last week in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was a member of a militia.
Biden was criticized for failing to condemn the riots even though he condemned police for the shooting of Jacob Blake, 29, that triggered the unrest last Sunday.
