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.

Elizabeth Warren SLAMS Bernie’s Bros: “A Foundation of Hate”

Warren’s alliance with the democratic socialist is shattered.

Elizabeth Warren Baits and Switches College Students

Elizabeth Warren spoke in condemning terms about some of Democratic frontrunner Bernie Sanders’ supporters when speaking to NBC News on Tuesday, calling out some Sanders supporters for operating with a “foundation of hate.”

Sanders’ competitors and liberal mainstream media outlets have increasingly tried to tar his supporters in an effort to blunt the candidacy of the democratic socialist, as he appears well-positioned to take the nomination.

Warren’s previously warm relationship with the Vermont democratic socialist turned sour last month, when the Massachusetts Senator claimed Bernie told her a woman couldn’t be President. Sanders denied the accusation, and Warren went on to accuse him of calling her a liar on a live debate stage.

Warren accused Sanders supporters of organizing a harassment campaign against members of a Nevada culinary union that declined to support him.

I am particularly worried about what happened in the attacks on members of the culinary union, particularly on the women in leadership. That is not how we build an inclusive Democratic Party. … We do not build on a foundation of hate.

Warren’s line of attack is quite similar to neoliberal Democrats running implicit ‘Never Bernie’ campaigns. Authoritarian oligarch Michael Bloomberg has released ads claiming that Sanders’ movement represents a toxic mob.

Warren claims Sanders supporters are “publishing their personal addresses, their phone numbers, and then making very aggressive threats against their own safety and the safety of their families.

Joe Biden also condemned what he interprets as online hate from Sanders supporters, telling mainstream media flack Chuck Todd that the Vermont Senator bears “accountability.” Sanders himself seems skeptical of the narrative, asking who his supposedly malicious supporters are when pressed on the issue.

Heated rhetoric from online leftists now seems to be a front and center issue within the Democratic primary. It’s a bit less clear if the supposed online mobs are really harassing people, or if Sanders’ critics want a free pass from criticism.
