Over a dozen of presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s campaign staffers have donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, an organization set up to pay bail fees in Minneapolis, according to a Reuters report.
That money is being directly used to bail out violent rioters from jail after being arrested for destroying Minneapolis residents’ private property in the name of George Floyd. Biden spokesperson Andrew Bates tacitly admitted that Biden himself is on board with donating to release violent criminals from police custody because he believes cash bail is the “modern-day debtors prison.”
The Trump campaign absolutely unloaded on Biden for encouraging the financial support of rioters in Minneapolis in a statement:
Reuters reports that “At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund,” a “group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis.” The city has been consumed by violent riots, destruction of property, and widespread arson, which is being carried out by – according to left-wing Mayor Jacob Frey – “white supremacists [and] members of organized crime.”
Of course, Democrat and media efforts to blame the riots on right-wing activists is absurd and obviously political. According to USA Today, “A security expert says intelligence reports indicate most of the hard-core protesters in Minneapolis are far-left or anarchists, and that far-right groups have not yet made a significant appearance.”
Anyone with a brain knows this. Among other left-wing groups, the Democratic Socialists of America are fueling violence in Minneapolis, and Antifa has been active across the country, including in Seattle, Mississippi and Los Angeles. In Washington, D.C, left-wing protesters outside the White House are using stickers to label Secret Service officers the face of “White Supremacy.”
As the U.S. Attorney General said today, “the voices of peaceful protest are being hijacked by violent radical elements… In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized, and driven by anarchistic and far left extremists, using Antifa-like tactics, many of whom travel from out of state to promote the violence.”
Don’t expect Minnesota’s Attorney General, Antifa’s #1 fanboy Keith Ellison, to tell the truth about that any time soon.
It’s disturbing that Joe Biden’s team would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building.
It’s also troubling that Biden himself has failed to condemn the rioting in his public remarks. As Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said today, “Joe Biden should condemn Antifa thugs.”
Violent riots precipitated by the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police department have exploded in nearly every major US city, resulting in at least two deaths, dozens of injuries, hundreds of arrests, and catastrophic property damage.
Biden released a statement calling the protests an “an utterly American response,” weakly continuing that “burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.”
Biden may have condemned the violence in his statement, but actions speak louder than words. What do you think about Joe Biden’s support of bailing out violent protestors?
