Back in August 2020, a Kenosha, Wisconsin policeman shot armed wanted criminal Jacob Blake. The Democratic governor Tony Evers immediately denounced the action as done “mercilessly.” Not surprisingly, bored youth soon started burning down and pillaging the Kenosha business district.
The next day, after the first night of rioting, Joe Biden egged on the rioters:
Yesterday in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Jacob Blake was shot seven times in the back as police attempted to restrain him from getting into his car. His children watched from inside the car and bystanders watched in disbelief. And this morning, the nation wakes up yet again with grief and outrage that yet another Black American is a victim of excessive force. This calls for an immediate, full and transparent investigation and the officers must be held accountable.
These shots pierce the soul of our nation. Jill and I pray for Jacob’s recovery and for his children.
Equal justice has not been real for Black Americans and so many others. We are at an inflection point. We must dismantle systemic racism.
Even less surprisingly, now with the encouragement of the next President, the rioters came back for more nights of mostly peaceful looting and arson, with the arrival of Antifa to complement the first night’s BLM rioters. The Kenosha riots were finally only ended by teenage marksman Kyle Rittenhouse deftly shooting three Antifa lowlifes who had attacked him.
Biden’s Department of Justice announced Friday that they were giving up any hope of being able to further persecute the cop who shot Blake:
Rittenhouse should subpoena Biden for his role in almost getting him killed by Antifa.
