In the aftermath of riots and chaos that has swept through the country, Joe Biden had tried to emerge as a thoughtful leader. He has appeared a few times to make statements about the violence, eagerly trying to win back black supporters. But one group he’s totally neglected? The very people charged with keeping Americans safe. Now a major police union is calling out the Democrat.
Since the start of these riots, Democrats have become more and more radical. Many rich liberal elitists—totally untouched by the violence—have spent money to bail out rioters and looters. Others have called for the defunding of police departments. Because, you know, when there’s violence in our streets the last thing you want are cops keeping us safe!
It’s clear most of these Democrats are mindlessly signaling their virtue. What are they going to do if cops are really defunded and departments are shut down? What will they say when the Antifa thugs they bailed out come to their neighborhoods, but there are no police to help them?
(Or do they just want other communities without cops, not theirs?)
Worst of the bunch has been Joe Biden and his campaign team. Thirteen of his staffers have donated to set free violent looters. Joe himself, trying to repair his image after his “you ain’t black” comment, has done little to address the problem. His recommendations echo the far-left nut jobs that want violence and chaos to continue to rampage.
He calls Trump “divisive” but does his best to divide and weaken the country.
Now, a major police union is torching the Democrat.
National Association of Police Organizations director Bill Johnson said the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has kept “moving left” and has gone “off the deep end” with his calls for law enforcement reforms…
Johnson said it was clear that Biden’s “made a lot of changes the way candidates do during the primary process, but he kept moving left and fell off the deep end.”
“For Joe Biden, police are shaking their heads because he used to be a stand-up guy who backed law enforcement,” he added, according to Politico. “But it seems in his old age, for whatever reason, he’s writing a sad final chapter when it comes to supporting law enforcement.”

Ouch. The NAPO actually endorsed Obama in 2008 and 2012, largely because Joe was on the ticket. Today, they are calling him out because of his radical stance against law enforcement.
Once upon a time, it appeared Joe Biden was on the side of law and order. Yet now the old man is desperate to win over the extreme left-wing of his party. As Johnson pointed out, during primaries, liberal candidates appear more left-wing to secure the nomination. But they always move closer to the middle, if they want to win the General Election.
That’s the opposite of what we’re seeing from Joe. It seems the Democrat is lurching further to the left, even as he expects to win over moderate and independent voters in November. Biden is backing radical thugs, like the ones that burned Minneapolis, and is encouraging police “reform” that will only tie cops’ hands.
The police union says Joe Biden “fell off the deep end” in his quest to win over leftists. At a time when violent criminals are ravaging our city streets, Joe Biden thinks the problem is police.
I wonder… how many Americans (who aren’t liberal hacks) agree with him? Tell me, do you think the problem we’re facing right now are too many police or too many masked anarchists rioting in our communities?
There may be bad cops that need to lose their jobs, but I never saw entire police departments burn down communities, smash up stores, loot small businesses, and destroy livelihoods. Not even close.
But keep talking, Joe. The more you lurch left, the more Americans flock to Trump.
