The Dark Side of Joe Biden

Yesterday, the Biden campaign landed in Kenosha, Wisconsin. There, the candidate managed to accuse President Trump of legitimizing “the dark side of human nature.”

Of course, Biden was in Wisconsin to stand up for Jacob Blake, Jr. the man who was shot seven times by police and who is now apparently paralyzed from the waist down.

As for who Blake, Jr., we know that the police had a warrant for his arrest. The charge: raping a child.

Stacey Lennox explains:

Biden is going to lionize a man accused of sexual assault, who had a warrant out for his arrest, then showed up at the home of his alleged victim, and actively resisted arrest while trying to retrieve a knife from his car. He marched to the driver’s side door while officers were telling him to stop and tazed him twice to impede his progress.

As for Blake, Sr. he is a vicious anti-Semite and a strong supporter of Rev. Louis Farrakhan.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Multiple anti-Semitic Facebook posts by Jacob Blake Sr. were exposed prior to the meeting. Blake Sr. excoriated the "Jewish media" and claimed they "control the interest rate [and] control the media they control Minds and money." In another post, he wrote, "A Jew can’t tell me shit period." In another, he said, "The Jewish media picks and chooses who is a terrorists and is not."

In other posts from 2017 to 2019, Blake Sr. stated that he stood with anti-Semitic Nation of Islam Leader Louis Farrakhan, who has promoted hatred towards Jews for years. One missive stated, "A cracker jew can do whatever to a white woman for years but let a jig try it."

The Biden campaign was asked about these views, and especially about promoting someone whose views are so completely bigoted. It has offered no response.

As for legitimizing the dark side of human nature, Biden should heal his own campaign first.

Blake has apparently been overlooked my #metoo as well. He was arrested while violating a restraining order imposed after a felony sexual assault.

But, like many Antifa/BLM warriors,
"Hours after Jacob Blake was shot Sunday, he looked at his mother in a Milwaukee hospital room, cried and told her he was sorry."

Snif.

I have long told people that if it was not for double standards the left would have no standards. I no longer qualify that. The left has no standards at all.

How can anyone, anyone with the slightest sense of morality support Blake or Biden?

Of course. They don't have to. The Enemedia gives them a free pass.

There's fake news, and then there's active spiking of stories that might reflect badly on Democrats. This episode will fall into the latter category. I don't expect to see much coverage of this.

There are some bad cops out there. There are bad ministers out there. There are bad parents out there. There are bad actors in every profession/role on the planet. The point is to root out the rot so the talented and committed majority can thrive. We're at the point where we've glorified criminals and marginalized the police. How long before recruiting classes for the police academies dry up? Despite all the prattling about defunding the police, we know that's not going to happen. We will need a set number of recruits, and the numbers of people wanting to be police will diminish. This means law enforcement authorities will have to lower their standards. Does that mean we'll have more or fewer bad cops in the future? Inquiring minds want to know.

Who wants the job?

Can you imagine being a police in the Portland Police Department? 95 straight days of rioting. Forget the cops getting paid overtime. There's no way they can function normally after that continuous level of combat. They must be exhausted. Yet we have the same expectations of them to take it day after day, night after night. We expect them to follow procedure and endure the chaos/pain valiantly. We expect them to put their lives on the line. Yet the rioters continue to attack, and no one has any expectations of them. And the activist isn't supposed get so much as a little boo-boo. If they're arrested, they're processed, and then the DA doesn't charge them. They're released, and back on the street the next night. Wash, rinse, repeat.

The news speaks of bad cops all the time. Meanwhile, they expect all cops to be saints. That's quite a contradiction. And critics spend time second-guessing the decisions cops make with no context. It makes a very difficult job much worse.

Enough.

More Black Hebrew Israelite kooks come to the surface. People do not realize the crazy shit demographics actually believe in once they talk amongst themselves, with the white people gone. This is tame by comparison to much of the demographic swamp. White conservatives think demographics sound like John McWhorter and Glen Loury. In reality, they sound more like Jacob Blake talking with Jeremiah Wright. I bet $20 if they ran Blake as a Democrat in a predominately Jewish district, the Jews will still vote for Blake by a significant margin.

Since our shitmedia will not spell this out clearly: Black Hebrew Israelites (and their many subsets and offshoots) believe Jews are not the real Jews, they are white imposters. They stole Jewishness from the original Jews, the black people. Blacks are the real chosen people, the real Jews, and white Jews are thieves and liars and interlopers. Understand where such a process of thinking leads to? Do I have to spell it out? You cannot have two contesting claims to who the chosen people are.

Heinlein called it "the crazy years". Right now I'd call it "the crazy decades."
