Joe Biden Praised Antifa As ‘Courageous Group of Americans’ in April
Former vice president Jospeh R. Biden Jr. and 2020 presidential contender kicked off his campaign in April by praising Antifa, a violent far-left group now responsible for savagely beating a journalist, causing a brain hemorrhage.
Speaking of the 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Biden said:
Charlottesville is also home to a defining moment for this nation in the last few years. It was there on August of 2017 we saw Klansmen and white supremacists and neo-Nazis come out in the open, their crazed faces illuminated by torches, veins bulging, and bearing the fangs of racism. Chanting the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ’30s. And they were met by a courageous group of Americans, and a violent clash ensued and a brave young woman lost her life.
Biden decided that one group of violent rioters was acceptable simply because they hold leftist views. In other words, political violence is fine, as long as it is committed by the left. This has long been the sentiment of the overtly-leftist news media, too, which
But Saturday, journalist Andy Ngo was brutally attacked in Portland, Oregon. His camera equipment was stolen, and he was forced to spend the night in the hospital due to a brain bleed.
Big League Politics reported:
A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.
“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”
He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.
“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”
Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.
