It seems like Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has finally gotten the message that Americans don’t like seeing their city streets lit on fire every night.
During a recent interview, Joe Biden was put on the spot, and he finally spoke out against antifa … sort of.
Biden condemns all violence
Biden was recently cornered by WGAL News 8 reporter Barbara Barr on antifa. When Barr asked him if he condemns antifa violence, Biden stated, “I’ve condemned it across the board. The president still hasn’t condemned the far-right folks coming out and protesting and using violence.” (That statement is an absolute, explained below.)
Not satisfied, Barr asked directly, “Do you condemn antifa?”
Biden responded, “Yes I do. Violence no matter who it is.” We are thinking that will not play too well with the far-left.
Where is Biden’s fact-check?
While it’s great that Barr put Biden on the spot about antifa, she loses a lot of points for not fact-checking Biden on the spot about Trump condemning far-right groups for violence.
Let’s go back to the 2016 election season when Trump was put on the spot about racist extremist groups on the far-right… Watch below:
Now, that sure sounds like a condemnation to me, but let’s dig even further.
On February 11, 2020, FactCheck.org, one of the more respectable fact-checking sites available, shattered this narrative.
The report goes in-depth on both Biden and Trump’s comments on this subject, ultimately finding that Trump had condemned these groups twice in two days! On both August 14 and August 15, 2017, Trump condemned neo-Nazis, KKK, white supremacists, and other hate groups.
If you dig around on YouTube, there are videos of Trump condemning these groups long before he ever ran for president, but nobody seems to care about the actual truth these days.
Biden has stated many times that he wants a live fact-checker during the debate and I hope he gets his wish. Since he has made that statement, I have personally seen four blatantly false statements made by Biden to the media and in every instance, the journalist has not fact-checked or even remotely challenged him.
