Former Vice President Joe Biden supports the ongoing demonstrations around the country, repeatedly referring to them as “peaceful protests” when they plainly are not.
Last week, he claimed that federal law enforcement officials were “brutally attacking peaceful protesters” in Portland, Oregon, ignoring the fact that the “peaceful” protesters had vandalized a federal courthouse and attempted to set it on fire. Several federal officials defending the courthouse have been seriously injured.
Biden has not condemned the ongoing riots, nor have most Democratic leaders. Instead, they have praised the “protests.”
