The first presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump reflected the state of America in 2020.
Chaotic, confusing and hopelessly divided.
Past debates, while heated, contained at least a moment of congeniality and even humor. Who could forget when Ronald Reagan, fending off charges that he was too old to be president, grinned and stated that he would not hold his opponent Walter Mondale’s “youth and inexperience” against him. Mondale could be seen chuckling at Reagan’s deft handling of the pin-prick attack.
Compare that with Biden’s vicious accusations against the President of the United States – calling him a “racist,” a “liar,” a “fool” and a “clown.” He told the president to “just shut up, man!”
Biden’s arrogance was on full display, saying at one point “I am the Democratic Party.” Hmm, I wonder what AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Talaib and Bernie Sanders would say about that. Not to mention George Soros, who owns the Democrat Party lock, stock and barrel and no doubt owns Biden as well.
Biden refused to call for law and order in the streets when pressed by Trump.
The biggest takeaway from this debate, however, should be Biden’s cavalier reaction to the issue of Antifa, a well-funded group that has organized the rioting, looting and burning of American cities, often in cooperation with Black Lives Matter, another Marxist organization bent on the destruction of the nuclear family, our free-enterprise system and America as we know it. Biden refused to denounce the radical Marxist groups. He said Antifa was merely “an idea, not an organization.”
Even if Antifa could be reduced to an idea, Biden couldn’t bring himself to declare it a bad idea. Is it any wonder that when Trump asked him point-blank whether he could name even one law-enforcement organization that has endorsed him, Biden fell silent?
So if Biden is the Democrat Party, and he approves of Antifa, the takeaway should be obvious for anyone paying attention.
Democrats are Antifa and Antifa are Democrats. Whether they have any formal ties, they are two organizations working toward a singular goal. This is huge, as it confirms our worst nightmare should Biden become our next president.
If elected, Biden will not rein in Antifa, and in fact will unleash them on his political opponents similar to the way Hitler unleashed his Brownshirts on Jews. It will be open season on Christian conservatives. They will be assaulted in the streets, coming out of their churches, in their homes. Their businesses and property will be fair game for attack under a Biden-Harris regime, whose attorney general will simply turn a blind eye while the media continues to do what the media always does – ignore that Antifa even exists.
How do we know this? Because the beginning of this assault is already underway. The only difference is that under Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr, the federal government is encouraging and assisting state and local police in the investigation and prosecution of these attacks. Earlier this week, Trump declared Antifa a domestic terrorist organization [something I advised the president to do more than a year ago]. A President Biden could be expected to overturn that designation and let the group run wild, hunting down and attacking the enemies of the Democrat Party.
No matter how staunchly they will try to deny it, Biden’s bowing to Antifa in the first debate provides the clearest evidence yet that the Democrat Party has completed its transition into America’s most powerful communist party. Biden had an opportunity to denounce Antifa, or at least draw a clear line of distinction between it and his party, and he passed.
Here are just some of the recent attacks by lawless thugs working with the full support of Antifa, BLM and the new Democrat [Communist] Party. [Many of the links provided include videos of the attacks]
- In Asheville, North Carolina, Antifa rioters carried a coffin full of manure to the police department on Sept. 23 and when a local reporter tried to videotape the incident, they slammed him into a parking meter, causing a traumatic brain injury. Antifa radicals took to Twitter and celebrated his demise.
- In Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, activists set fire to a Trump supporter’s house, burning down his garage and covering it with pro-BLM graffiti in the early hours of Sept. 23.
- Activists broke into St. Patrick’s Cathedral in El Paso, Texas, on Sept. 15 and desecrated a statue depicting the sacred heart of Jesus.
- Vandals attacked a statue of Jesus at the St. Joseph’s Catholic Cathedral in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Sept. 24, desecrating the statue with pro-BLM graffiti and blasphemous, obscene words.
- Activists at a Sept. 3 BLM protest in Ithaca, NY, attacked an elderly couple and then bashed in the skull of a man who came to the couple’s rescue.
- Greg Bloch posted to Facebook on Aug. 5 a harrowing account of being “jumped” and beaten by three pro-Biden thugs at a campground in Wisconsin, simply because he was flying a Trump 2020 flag from his RV.
- A Memphis man is facing charges for pointing a gun at a mob of “peaceful” protesters who had gathered outside his home. Paul Staples reportedly told investigators he pointed his gun because he feared for his life.
- Portland protesters targeted residential areas, threatening to burn a home flying an American flag, reports Law Enforcement Today. Such targeted areas are “mostly white,” according to the New York Times.
- A mob in Louisville approached business owner Fadi Faouri and demanded he pledge allegiance to Black Lives Matter.
- Who can forget the disturbing article and videos, The Bolshevik army shows its face in Atlanta suburb of Stone Mountain.
- The harassing and intimidation of Christians trying to enter the Grace Baptist Church on Sunday, July 5, in Troy, New York. After the Christians finally got in, the mob interrupted the sermon by shouting profanities [look for more of this activity targeting churches in future].
- A Black Lives Matter thug was filmed on July 6 harassing, screaming at and threatening white children on a trip to Washington, D.C.
- The surrounding of the private residence of Mark and Patricia McCloskey in St. Louis on June 28 while breaking through an iron gate and threatening to kill them and their dog.
- The berating, spitting on and physical beating of a group of Catholics who were praying around a statue of Saint Louis on June 27.
- The increasingly bizarre and vicious rhetoric of the left, such as the comment by Black Lives Matter’s Toronto director that whites are “subhuman” and “genetic defects.”
- Two L.A. County sheriff’s deputies were ambushed and shot execution-style by a single shooter while sitting in their squad car. BLM activists then blocked the entrance to the hospital where the officers were being treated, yelling “we hope you die.”
- An elderly couple in Pittsburgh were harassed while dining at a restaurant, following similar incidents at restaurants in Washington, D.C., and Rochester, NY. More harassments of diners occurred in Roanoke, Virginia, and St. Petersburg, Florida.
- A white man was randomly attacked on the streets of Baltimore on Aug. 30 when a thug snuck up from behind and hit him on the head with a brick.
There are no doubts hundreds if not thousands more of these incidents but only a small fraction get caught on video or documented by police reports.
The vast majority of the Republicans still don’t understand what is going on. The people breaking into churches, vandalizing sacred statues and accusing everyone and everything related to patriotic America as being part of a conspiracy theory of “systemic racism” are not simply malcontents hoping for police reform. These are hardcore Marxist revolutionaries and anarchists who only understand one thing – brute force.
If President Trump gets re-elected, he can be counted on to treat Antifa as the threat that it is. Biden would use them as his attack dogs, sic them on his enemies. And atop that list of enemies will be conservative Christians – evangelicals and conservative Catholics – along with more secular conservatives who regard the U.S. Constitution as a sacred document.
It was extremely telling how debate moderator Chris Wallace made a point of asking Trump, “Mr. President, will you denounce white supremacist groups?” But he did not ask Biden, “will you denounce Antifa?”
Brace yourself and prepare for what’s coming. Whenever you see unchecked chaos, in the streets or on a debate platform, you know civil war is just around the corner.
