    Has Joe or anyone in Democratic Leadership taken a stand against the violence, assaults and property damage happening all over the US?

    Has anyone on the Democratic side called for law and order?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Law and order ? It used to be legal to thwart and harass minorities. Be careful of what you’re calling for !

    I know what I am calling for:

    I expect people to be held accountable for their actions.

    and wondering why we don’t hear former VP Biden or any of the Democratic leadership calling for it.

    how about you?

    Don't seem like it.
    Maybe thinking that they will pick some votes up there?
    If they haven't burnt down the polling places?
    Oh, maybe that's why they want mail in?

    “Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. It’s an utterly American response. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not.” Joe Biden



    There have been condemnations across the board from all levels of democratic leaders. and they are easy to find if you just look.

    If you consider stopping rioters from looting, setting fires to minority and big businesses, assaulting and now in CHAZ, murdering people in cold blood "fascist behavior", we have no common ground.

    My apologies - by my using the term "taking a stand" to me, means proposing and helping ACT on the problem. Both are great statements - both good, good soundbite. Neither supports the Police nor offers a solution.

    Democrats are great for sound bites - how about putting action to words?

    To be fair, Joe Biden used to be tough on crime. Read about it here: The controversial 1994 crime law that Joe Biden helped write, explained

    We're living in different times, however. BLM is the latest political fashion, so I don't think it would be within Biden's political interests to denounce the violence, riots, and protests that have been happening all over the country.

    You support him changing his stance according to what is politically expedient for him? How about doing something because it is the right thing to do?

    You're right, Joe Biden should use his vast power as a *checks notes* private citizen to address the problem. What do you suggest he do besides what he already has done?

    Both Houses of Congress are working on comprehensive police reform and reallocating some resources to programs which prevent crime.

    Speaking of real Mega crimes, the house is investigating attorney general Barr who recently fired a prosecutor in the southern district of New York to prevent his boss and his boss's colleagues from being investigated. Berman was investigating the Trump Corporation. He was also investigating Trump as individual 1 in campaign fraud.
    Law & Order needs to start at the top. There have been so many crimes committed within the Trump Administration over the past 3 years that the idea of Law & Order for everyone else seems tremendously hypocritical

    Conservatives find themselves frustrated by Democratic candidates who are following the CDC guidelines - the more this President and his supporters defy the conventional medical wisdom of wearing masks, maintaining social distancing and not holding rallies in confined spaces, the less competent they appear to be able to address America's problems!

    With over 120,000 dead, 2.3 million testing positive and 40 million unemployed, the nation doesn't need to listen to this President 's never-ending whining as to how unfairly he's being treated!

    Given the facts:
    Twitter removes account of white nationalist group posing as antifa online
    The move comes as disinformation spreads online amid protests and unrest.
    Twitter removes account of white nationalist group posing as antifa online


    It's a question the right seems to be unwilling to answer.

    Joe Biden's low profile and high polls show that Trump is so toxic no campaign is needed to defeat him.
    Truly "anyone but Trump."

    It may indeed have gone that far. Trump is now his deadliest enemy.

    Sure, I'll answer you.

    Here is a video showing BLM rioters throwing glass bottles at police cars and mounted policemen: Video: Protesters throw glass bottles and bikes at police on horseback | Daily Mail Online

    But I guess it's really the work of white supremacist boogey men spreading disinformation, right? lol

    From your video:
    Protesters throw glass bottles and bikes at police on horseback in Whitehall - inadvertently hitting the animals and causing one to bolt. The animal fled

    You do realize that "Whitehall" is in England, right? How did you identify them as BLM members? Or do you just assume if they are black, they must be BLM?

    Could you clarify those things for us?

    We will know one way or the other, when you show us your evidence. I don't necessarily think you're a white supremacist or even intentionally spreading disinformation. But do show us your evidence.

    That's what I expect. But you deserve a chance. What have you got?
