Biden-Harris Are Doubling Down On This Lie

August 15, 2020 |

From law professor/blogger Ann Althouse, on Joe Biden’s speech and his first tweet after announcing Kamala Harris as his running mate.

Prof. Althouse was appalled by Biden’s attempts to stir up racial division and hatred with his description of what happened in Charlottesville, but also with his attempt, yet again, to claim that President Trump said there were “very fine people” on the side of the racist white nationalists.

Both Biden and Harris claim that “character is on the ballot.” Yet they’re trying to scare black people into thinking Republicans want to lynch them, and (ironically, since his defenders are trying to use the “Trump is a liar” narrative as an excuse for Joe to weasel out of debating him) kicking off their campaign by repeating a scurrilous, slanderous and thoroughly debunked lie.

Even CNN’s Jake Tapper admitted that Trump was talking about people on both sides of the debate over removing Confederate monuments. When the interviewer asked if he meant the white nationalists, he seemed incredulous that anyone would ask such a stupid question and said of course not, neo-Nazis and white nationalists should be “condemned totally.”

As Prof. Althouse points out, Biden piously declared that "’No president of the United States of America has ever said anything like that.’ Well, now, that is true. Because Trump didn't say it.”

She recalls that when Biden first repeated that inflammatory, debunked lie about Trump over a year ago, she wrote this: "If Biden does not come forward and retract [a video relying on the Charlottesville hoax] and apologize and commit himself to making amends, I consider him disqualified. He does not have the character or brain power to be President." Yet, she adds, over a year later, he’s “doubled down on the lie” and is “making it the centerpiece of his campaign!” At this point, she said, “I can't imagine what Biden could do to win my confidence.”

I can’t, either. But I can assure Joe that plagiarizing Ronald Reagan won’t do it.

    They have lied so much in their political years they wouldn’t know the truth if it hit them upside the head. They act like they can say anything without accountability. They along with all of us will be held accountable for what is said and our actions when we stand before our Maker someday. This is why it is so important to always tell the truth, have a good character and above all integrity!

    The democrats are no longer the party I grew up voting for, therefore, the Republican Party is where my values are today. My family and I will support President Trump.

    But the haters will believe this and condemn those who continue to support the President.

    What is disconcerting is that Kamala Harris was not even liked by fellow Democrats when she ran for the Democrat nominee for President! So WHY is she now his running mate?

    I am so worried that Kamala Harris will be president in 2021. Make no mistake, this is what the Democrats have planned. Biden will step down after a few months, and she will take over. She is a vicious, vile, and cruel person who will stop at nothing to further her agenda. We the people will find that out to our sorrow if we elect her and her "running mate" Biden in November.

    If we elect Biden/Harris and Biden is unable to fulfill his term as president than Harris will fulfill his term and Nancy Pelosi would become the vice-president. What a horror.
