Joe Biden thought he could have both sides.
He never expected the backlash that would cause.
Now, Joe Biden pulls this insane stunt that will crush his campaign.
No one is a stranger to the violent riots that have slowly started to spread to all cities in America.
The violence following the death of George Floyd has left an irreparable scar on cities across the country.
And while the BLM movement started with the noble goal of inspiring a necessary change, anarchists have seized the title and run amok with it.
Now, Biden’s campaign is in hot water as they try to appease both sides of the fight: the defunded, overworked police officers who are actively being shot on the streets and the violent rioters who are making ludicrous demands.
Biden and the Democrats threw their support in for the BLM movement when it first started back in May.
But now, the violence and terror they are causing is inexcusable.
While Biden recently released an ad condemning the violence, his poll numbers have suffered a serious blow.
Biden and Harris tweeted out their disapproval with the destruction the riots caused, but many people rightly saw that move as too little too late.
An article by RedState blog stated:
“Polling is showing that the Biden campaign is bleeding out over the issue of BLM and Antifa rioting and the inability of the Biden campaign to come out strongly against civil unrest because its core supporters are either in the streets or whipping up hatred to get other people to riot.”
Biden is losing support because he is not radical enough for the rioters and he is not moderate enough for those who want to stay safe.
Thus, his poll numbers are hemorrhaging out both sides.
And there seems to be little he can do to fix it.
Recently, two LA county officers were critically wounded when an armed man openly shot into their squad car.
His intent was to murder them in broad daylight.
Biden’s campaign officially released a statement condemning this man’s actions, but he cannot separate himself from these people and the support he gave them.
The statement reads:
“This cold-blooded shooting is unconscionable and the perpetrator must be brought to justice.
Violence of any kind is wrong; those who commit it should be caught and punished.
Jill and I are keeping the deputies and their loved ones in our hearts and praying for a full recovery.”
While Biden offers his sympathies, this kind of horrific violence is a direct result of the Democrats coddling the dangerous people who proposed these kinds of ideas.
By slashing police support and demonizing the officers, Biden and the Democrats made this kind of atrocious act seem not only doable, but necessary.
Biden cannot back out of the hole he has created now.
Despite what he says now, he has thrown his lot in with the rioters.
Changing his stance now – as he has already done – will only result in further damage to his polling numbers and his credibility.
