The Patriot Post® · Biden and Harris Call for 'Battle'
In the final day of testimony ahead of the acquittal of former President Donald Trump on unsubstantiated charges (now for a second time), Trump’s defense team entered into evidence a collection of public remarks by Democrats using combative “fight” language — at the same time some of them were clearly inciting their constituents to riot across the nation.
But there was a call to “battle” that has yet to be mentioned…
In the five months ahead of the 2020 election, almost all Democrat Party principals watched in deafening silence as their Marxist “Black Lives Matter” constituents and their “antifa movement” constituents battled with police, burned and looted businesses, and murdered citizens.
As historian Victor Davis Hanson noted, the “summer of rage” included “100 days of torching federal court houses and police precincts, 700 policeman injured, many people dead, billions in damages…” However, there was little condemnation from Demos, while in many cases there was support for the violence. As I noted in my condemnation of the “Capitol Riot Jackasses,” Democrats have a clear double standard when it comes to the condemnation of riots.
On the front page of the Biden/Harris campaign website, Biden declared, “I’ve long talked about the battle for the soul of America,” and he uses the word “battle” NINE times in connection with issues that the Democrats had deliberately politicized in order to ensure their constituents were highly charged — and some of them agitated to the point of violence.
Biden claimed, “It’s time to put away the harsh rhetoric. To lower the temperature.” Indeed it is, Joe. He then issued battle orders, calling on his “forces” to fight “in the great battles of our time,” including “the battle to achieve racial justice and root out systemic racism in this country.”
Yes, that was the catalytic canard Biden and Harris promoted to foment all the urban destruction. Those violent riots originated with the BIG Demo Lie that all levels of our legal system of justice are infused with “systemic racism,” as are those enforcing our laws.
Biden declared this is “the battle to restore decency” and that “our nation is shaped by the constant battle between our better angels and our darkest impulses.” Of course, you know who Biden and Harris classify as the indecent perpetrators of those “darkest impulses”: YOU.
Now, I know what Biden and Harris meant in regard to all those “battles,” just as I knew what Trump meant when telling his constituents to fight. But given the Democrats’ new standard for such combative language, it is an inescapable fact that the burn, loot, and murder rage by leftists nationwide, which has been exponentially more costly than the Capitol riot, is directly tied to Democrat political rhetoric.
It is clear that over the last four years, the Democrat Party’s most vociferous hate hustlers, in collusion with their Leftmedia propagandists and their Big Tech free speech suppressors, have perfected the politicization of hate, aiding and abetting now countless leftist insurrections across the nation. They effectively used their anti-Trump “hate platform” to foment fear, anger, and division in order to systematically disunite America.
Biden fanned the rage-riot flames declaring, “Does anyone believe there will be less violence … if Donald Trump is reelected?”
Likewise, in June as the riots raged, Kamala Harris was cheering the rioters on: “They’re not going to stop. They’re not going to stop. This is a movement, I’m telling you. They’re not gonna stop. And everyone beware because they’re not gonna stop. They’re not gonna stop before Election Day and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. And everyone should take note of that. They’re not gonna let up and they should not, and we should not.” Once again, “they should not, and we should not.”
So committed was Harris to those “peaceful protesters” that she supported a bail fund for their release. Harris posted on social media: “If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota.” Many of the bailed rioters were re-arrested, including at least one violent protester who was re-re-arrested.
Hate hustlers and their supporting cast are nothing new, as evident in the writings of Frederick Douglass, Booker Washington, and Martin King. But what is new is their ability to proliferate hate and division through mass media networks.
The primary proliferators of hate have been House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), but it’s become abundantly clear that the Biden/Harris regime is now a launching platform.
What follows is a compendium of additional battle and riot rhetoric used by Democrats during Trump’s tenure.
In January, after the riotous Capitol protest, Schumer took to the Senate floor calling for “a rigorous investigation of the events” including “the gross disparity in force between the Trump administration’s response to the Capitol rioters and the administration’s response to the racial justice protesters last summer.”
You know, those peaceful “racial justice protesters” who Schumer failed to condemn in the strongest words – those whose unmitigated violence was summed up by political analyst Conrad Black notes: “Approximately 50 people were killed, 700 police officers were injured, and over $2 billion in property damage was done by vandals and arsonists, none of whom, as far as could be deduced, cared a fig about George Floyd. The Democratic National Convention declined to mention these riots; they were simply put out of mind.”
In the wake of all that leftist violence, Schumer took leave of his senses and compared the Capitol riot to Pearl Harbor: “It is very, very difficult to put into words what has transpired today. I have never lived through or even imagined an experience like the one we have just witnessed in this Capitol. President Franklin Roosevelt set aside Dec. 7, 1941, as a day that will live in infamy. Unfortunately, we can now add Jan. 6, 2021, to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy.”
Recall that last year, Schumer addressed a mob on the steps of the Supreme Court, fomenting disruption while a case was being deliberated: “I want to tell you Gorsuch. I want to tell you Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.” As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) notes: “I think if we’re going to criminalize speech, and somehow impeach everybody who says, ‘Oh, go fight to hear your voices heard,’ I mean, we really ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then.”
Pelosi told her constituents: “If there is some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it.”
When Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, was asked if he would condemn the BLM and antifa rioters, her responded, “That’s a myth.”
Socialist “Squad” member Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) declared: “You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives.” (The Twitter police must have missed this hate rhetoric because accounts for Biden, Harris, and Pressley have not been suspended.)
Recall that ahead of the 2018 election, Hillary Clinton declared that Democrats can’t be civil: “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for. … I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) incited Democrats: “Go to the Hill today. Please, get up in the face of some congresspeople.”
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) told Democrats, “What we’ve got to do is fight in Congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets…”
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called on Democrats to harass Republicans in public places: “If you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
Such calls for violence against Republicans resulted in the recent protests at the home of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), as described by his wife Erin, who was home with their infant daughter. There was no Demo condemnation.
Biden and Harris have promoted fighting President Trump directly.
Biden threatened to fight Trump in 2016: “I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish.” (I would have paid BIG BUCKS to watch that rumble.) He doubled down on that threat against President Trump again in 2018: “I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”
Harris joked about killing Trump and Mike Pence in a cage fight to applauding fans: “Does one of them have to come out alive?”
And Biden has targeted Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and factory workers with ass whoopins. He declared, “I’d like to give [Cramer] a high threshold of pain. I’m serious. I’m really serious.” He told the Detroit union worker in his now-infamous “AR-14” argument, “You’re full of s—t” and then threatened, “I’m going to go outside with your ass. … I’m not working for you.” (I would have paid BIG BUCKS to watch either of those rumbles, too.)
Of course, there’s a long list of leftists who made Nazi comparisons to antagonize their constituents.
Biden said Trump was “sort of like Goebbels,” the Nazi propagandist.
And House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) compared Trump to Hitler, pleading: “I’m beginning to see what happened in Germany back in the 1930s. I never thought that could happen in this country. How do you elect a person president, then all of a sudden you’re going to give him the authority to be dictator? That’s what Hitler did in Germany.”
Notwithstanding any limits on their abject hypocrisy, Democrats were finally able to identify one riot in the last four years they could all condemn, ad infinitum — the one perpetrated in the Capitol building on January 6th by a fractional faction of jackass thugs. That small atypical break-off group of violent radicals, clearly distinguishable from the otherwise lawful and respectful Trump rally attendees, were less likely inspired to violence by anything Donald Trump said that day, than they were by the type of rhetoric spewed by a primary benefactor and promoter of that rally: fringe conspiracy theory agitator and perpetual charlatan Alex Jones.
And now, despite their incessant claims of “systemic racism” and relentless accusations that cops are racist, Democrats finally found a police officer they can praise, and an entire police department to which they can give a Congressional Gold Medal, as props for their Trump impeachment charade.
Recall what Joe Biden said about the “racist” way Capitol Police handled the riot: “Not only did we see the failure to protect one of the three branches of our government, we also saw a clear failure to carry out equal justice. No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday, they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that’s true. And it is unacceptable.”
And likewise, Kamala Harris condemned the Capitol Police: “We witnessed two systems of justice when we saw one that let extremists storm the United States Capitol, and another that released tear gas on peaceful protesters last summer.” (Ah yes, that brazen “peaceful protester” lie.)
Translation: The Capitol Police are racists.
So, should Biden and Harris be impeached? According to Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC), “I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if the Republicans take over the House, because she actually bailed out rioters.” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) previously noted, “Kamala Harris helped violent rioters in Minnesota get out of jail to do more damage. Don’t believe her when she says she ‘condemns the violence’ — look at her record, not her words.”
Of course, Republicans won’t impeach Biden or Harris — nor should they — because the only standard upon which their words are impeachable is the Democrat double standard for Trump.
FOOTNOTE: While Biden and Harris insist they are all about “unity,” in fact, division is the staple of the Democrat Party, and has been for generations. Democrats only “win” the battle if they can divide and conquer. To that end, on their campaign website Biden declared: “I pledge to be a President who seeks not to divide, but to unify.” He then referenced all their divided political identity constituencies… Of Harris, Biden said she “will make history as the first woman, first Black woman, first woman of South Asian descent, and first daughter of immigrants,” adding “America has bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice.” (In other words, as he said about Barack Obama, Harris is “the first mainstream African-American presidential candidate who is articulate and bright and clean-cut and a nice-looking…I mean, that’s a storybook, man!”) Then he mentioned their “coalition” by identity group: “Young and old. Urban, suburban and rural. Gay, straight, transgender. White. Latino. Asian. Native American. And especially for those moments when this campaign was at its lowest — the African American community stood up again for me. They always have my back, and I’ll have yours.”
