Postcards From the Edge of Cannibalism

President Biden’s campaign announcement video in 2019 began with two words – Charlottesville, Virginia. Biden said he felt compelled to run against then-President Trump because of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

Biden slammed Trump for a quote taken out of context. The quote has to do with there being “very fine people on both sides”  but the Democrat talking point quickly became that Trump said white supremacists were good people. Democrats still cough up that trope to this day, including Joe Biden. 

On Sunday, a White House spokesman issued a statement. 

“While every American has the right to peaceful protest, calls for violence and physical intimidation targeting Jewish students and the Jewish community are blatantly antisemitic, unconscionable and dangerous – they have absolutely no place on any college campus or anywhere in the United States of America,” White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates said. “And echoing the rhetoric of terrorist organizations, especially in the wake of the worst massacre committed against the Jewish people since the Holocaust, is despicable. We condemn these statements in the strongest terms.”

Biden did not issue an official statement on the antisemitism on college campuses during the past months. He hadn’t weighed in on the protests that are shutting down universities and turning violent. 

That changed on Monday. No, Joe Biden didn’t find it within himself to stand up and support Jewish students on college campuses or call for an end to encampments on the grounds of campuses. He didn’t tell students to stop making human chains to deny entrance into buildings. But, he was asked about the goings-on with the demonstrations by a reporter as he finished an Earth Day event in Virginia. He had to say something.

“I condemn the anti-Semitic protests,” the president told reporters en route back from a speech he had delivered to commemorate Earth Day. “That’s why I have set up a program to deal with that. I also condemn those who don’t understand what’s going on with the Palestinians.”

Asked a second question about whether Columbia University’s president should resign, Biden said he wasn’t sure. “I will have to find out more about that,” he said.

Well, look at that. It’s Biden’s Charlottesville moment. Not only did he wait months to say something about the protests against Israel and Jews, but he tried to straddle the fence on the issue. 

Appeasement does not work. Biden is cowed by Muslim Arab American voters in Michigan, afraid to lose their votes in November. He is too afraid to show moral clarity and stand steadfast with Israel. It is disgraceful. His cowardice enables Hamas to continue to attack Israel with impunity. 

Biden doesn’t have anything on his X account about the demonstrations, as I write this. He did take a moment (or, a staffer did) to post a Happy Passover message. 

Biden did an Earth Day event with AOC and Senator Markey. They were the architects of the Green New Deal that morphed into the Inflation Reduction Act, which had nothing to do with reducing inflation and everything to do with burning money on climate projects. Climate is polling at about 5% for its importance to voters. Joe’s got his finger on the pulse of America, I tell ya. 

Biden made sure to tell the people there that he learned a long time ago “to listen to the lady” after AOC spoke. AOC went on to praise the protesters at the universities during her speech. Because, of course she did. 

Sorry Jewish students. You are on your own. Joe Biden is too busy trying to get re-elected.
