Joe Biden was feeling the heat.
The political walls were closing in and Biden’s handlers felt the need to take action.
Joe Biden gave Democrats some bad news by issuing a major threat.
The issue of violent crime sweeping American cities is turning into a political albatross from Democrats.
Democrats run every major metropolitan area in the country and the left’s demands to defund and demonize the police have the chickens coming home to roost.
In 2020 violent crime soared in American cities as Black Lives Matter rioters attacked the very idea of policing and Democrat officials responded with budget cuts.
But it was the residents – many of whom were black and Latino – that paid the price as statistics showed “an historic” rise in murders in 2020.
“It found what the researchers called “an historic” 30 percent increase in homicides in 2020 compared to 2019, with 1,268 more deaths in the sample cities than the year before. Homicides rose in 29 of the 34 cities studied – Milwaukee’s homicides rose by 85 percent, Seattle 63 percent, Chicago 55 percent and New York City 43 percent.” Voice of America reported.
Reality again slapped the left in the face as former Republican and NYPD officer Eric Adams grabbed a nearly insurmountable lead over the candidates promising to defund the police in New York City’s Democrat Mayoral primary as crime and public safety were the top issues for Gotham’s liberal electorate.
The day after Adams – who campaigned on a law andorder message and bragged about always carrying a gun – appeared on track to become New York City’s next Mayor Biden’s handlers announced Biden would deliver remarks to the nation on his plan to combat crime.
But Biden largely ignored the cause of crimes – Democrats ripping police as racist killers which led to a surge in retirements and police pullbacks – and instead, threatened to incinerate Americans with nuclear weapons and bombs dropped from F-15 fighter jets as punishment for owning guns.
“Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government.” Biden added that “If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons.”
Biden falsely claimed a so-called “assault weapons” ban was a crime fighting strategy even though more Americans are killed with knives or beaten to death.
“No one needs to have a weapon that can fire over 30, 40, 50, even up to 100 rounds, unless you think the deer are wearing kevlar vests or something.” Biden claimed.
Crime is going to be a major issue in 2022.
But Biden threatens to compound the Democrats problems by avoiding talking about the need for more and better funded police on the streets and instead trying to claim gun control is the solution.
In 1994 Joe Biden helped shepherd a so-called “assault weapons” ban through Congress.
That fall Republicans routed the Democrats winning control of both the House and the Senate.
In fact, Democrats paid such a steep price for gun control that 1994 was the first time since 1948 that Republicans won a majority in the House of Representatives.
If Democrats are on the defensive with regards to the issue of guns and policing the left could face a similar wave next November.
