Joe Biden rolled out his campaign by referring back to the Charlottesville protest where white nationalists protested the removal of Confederate statues – but forgot to mention one thing. The Daily Caller reports:
Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Antifa in a video announcing his presidential bid Thursday, characterizing the group as “courageous” and saying it’s wrong to draw a moral equivalence between white nationalist groups and those opposing them.
In a retelling of the events at a 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Biden describes the white nationalists as having “crazed faces, illuminated by torches, veins bulging and baring the fangs of racism,” but describes the Antifa members who engaged violently with them as “a courageous group of Americans.”
“A violent clash ensued, and a brave young woman lost her life,” Biden says in the video. “And that’s when we heard the words of the president of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation.”
Racists hijacked the previously peaceful protests against removing Confederate monuments, and Antifa infiltrated legitimate counter-protesters who were peacefully opposed to the white supremacists showing in their city. By conflating all these groups, Biden legitimized the violent acts by radical leftists when in fact, no deadly “clash” occurred between the two groups, only the cold blooded murder of a peaceful protester by a deranged white supremacist. The left is fully embracing paramilitary groups as armed wing of their Marxist worldview.
