The Patriot Post® · Joe Biden's 'Very Fine People'

By Nate Jackson ·

Shout “Death to America,” get student loan “forgiveness” from Uncle Joe Biden. That seems to be the new reality in Clown World.

It’s not so simple, of course, and it would be here that the Leftmedia “fact-checkers” would jump in and say, There’s no evidence that any protesters received forgiveness for student loans.

Fact-checkers, however, exist to obscure the truth. In this case, the truth is that Biden hopes to win the votes of people on college campuses or with recent college degrees, and one method for doing so is to buy them off by transferring their student loan balances to taxpayers. How “generous.”

The connection with pro-terrorist protesters on college campuses is that Biden is threading a difficult needle with his administration’s policy toward our old ally, Israel. You’d think that when Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists kidnapped, sexually assaulted, and brutally murdered hundreds of Jews on October 7, the reaction would be universal condemnation.

It was. Except some of that condemnation was aimed at Israel.

Why? It’s thanks to the Marxist oppressor/oppressed dialectic with which college kids today are indoctrinated. That miseducation is why, as The Washington Post’s Philip Bump notes, “Younger voters are demonstrably more sympathetic to the Palestinians in Gaza than are older Americans, and many see Biden’s loyalty to Israel as a moral failure.”

If Biden’s policy is a “moral failure,” that justifies all sorts of rebellion against it. That’s why full-grown toddlers throw terrorist tantrums and block critical roads and bridges.

As for similar protests gripping our nation’s elite universities, our Emmy Griffin first covered them Friday, saying, “The barbarians are within the Ivy League gates.” Indeed they are, and they continue to spread their hate — students, professors, and administrators alike.

It’s been an eventful few days at Barack Obama’s alma mater, Columbia University, with more than 100 arrests and a move to hybrid classes for the rest of the semester. Raucous protests and subsequent arrests spread to New York University, Yale, Harvard, and elsewhere.

As protesters not only expressed support for the “global intifada” launched by Hamas terrorism — er, the “sacrificial spirit of the Palestinian freedom fighters” — but also harassed Jews and blocked them from accessing buildings or classes, one New York Times headline on the protests focused on “dancing and pizza.”

One man’s vile, hate-filled protest is another man’s pizza party.

That’s not as bad as Joe Biden, though. He claims he was inspired to mount a third presidential campaign because of Donald Trump’s “very fine people” remark at Charlottesville.

That was a big lie, of course, though Biden just had his own “very fine people” moment.

“I condemn the anti-Semitic protests,” he told reporters. “I also condemn those who don’t understand what’s going on with the Palestinians.”

“There is, however, a key difference” between Trump’s comment and Biden’s, writes David Harsanyi. “Trump’s garbled line was almost surely not aimed at tiki-torch neo-Nazis. Believe what you like about Trump’s motivations, but he also later unequivocally condemned the white supremacists on more than one occasion. Biden, on the other hand, can’t even get himself to call out Brownshirts without throwing them a bone.”

Officially, the White House only really condemned the anti-Semitism spreading like gangrene on college campuses in a Passover press release that had more to say advocating the two-state solution Palestinians keep rejecting than it did condemning the ugly Jew hatred in America.

That’s typical. Whenever Democrats do muster enough courage to denounce anti-Semitism, it’s usually watered down by also including racism and all their favorite “phobias” — Islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, ad nauseam.

Biden shared the stage Monday with one of the leading anti-Semites in Congress, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She declared, “It is especially important that we remember the power of young people shaping this country … as we once again witness the leadership of those peaceful, student-led protests on campuses like Columbia, Yale, Berkeley, and many others.” You know, places where “peaceful” students were arrested.

After she spoke, Biden told attendees to “listen to that lady.”

AOC can be called a lot of things, but few would accuse her of being a lady.

Speaking of anti-Semitic Squad members, Ilhan Omar’s daughter was among those suspended and detained at Columbia. Omar claims it was among the many protests throughout history that were “co-opted and made to look bad.” Trying to cast anti-Semitism caught on video as a conspiracy theory takes — to borrow a great Hebrew/Yiddish word — some real chutzpah.

That word goes a long way to explaining the entire pro-terrorist, anti-Semitic movement in America.
