Man, the internal Democrat polls related to Antifa/BLM and the violent riots they’re executing in Democrat-run cities must be horrible. That must be the case, because on Monday, China Joe McNastyFinger actually came out and at least indirectly condemned Antifa for the first time.
He still couldn’t bring himself to actually use the word “Antifa” – a word he has not personally uttered throughout his entire campaign – but he did say he does “condemn” the domestic terrorist group when asked a question that directly named it.
From a story at The Daily Caller:
Biden discussed the far-left movement perpetuating violence through riots across the United States in an interview with WGAL News 8’s Barbara Barr, saying that he has not stayed silent on the issue.
“I’ve condemned it across the board,” he said. “The president still hasn’t condemned the far-right folks coming out and protesting and using violence.” [Note: That statement is a blatant lie. President Trump has condemned far-right violence on a thousand occasions, every time he’s been asked about it.]
“Do you condemn Antifa,” Barr asked him.
“Yes I do,” he responded. “Violence no matter who it is.”
So, why can’t Gropey Joe DementiaNoggin utter Antifa’s name, you ask? Because Antifa members are his voters. It really is that simple. He is never going to outright say “I condemn the domestic terrorist group, Antifa” because he wants their votes. And besides, like the KKK before it, Antifa is a creation of the Democrat Party. As such, condemning Antifa is no different than condemning the leadership at the Democrat National Committee or the Democrat fundraising machine in Hollywood. It just is not done.
But think of how far Biden has come just in the last three weeks. He’s gone from holding a four-day convention during which not a single, solitary speaker was allowed to even mention the riots, much less call out Antifa by name; to offering a vague, non-specific statement of concern about “unrest” about two weeks ago; to then rolling out another vague, non-specific statement rejecting “violent protests” a few days later; to now offering a specific, if indirect, condemnation of Antifa.
Going back to my First Key to Understanding Democrats, we know that everything Democrats do, every word they say in public is based on polling and focus groups. Everything. No exceptions, except when they go off-script. And nobody goes off-script like Joe Biden.
Biden’s slow ramping-up of riot-related rhetoric shows that his elder-abusing campaign handlers are increasingly worried about the negative impacts of all the rioting on their campaign. But the fact that he still cannot outright say the word “Antifa” tells us that his handlers still want the votes of the looters, burners and murderers on Election Day.
That’s what all of this careful calibration of talking points is all about. The problem they face at this point is that they have now taken their Unfrozen Caveman placeholder candidate all the way up to the very precipice. The only next step available to them from a talking points standpoint now is to have him make the leap and actually say the name of their pet terrorist group. That moment will only come if they have no other choice; it will only happen if they make the calculation that an outright condemnation of Antifa would help their addled candidate win some swing states he would otherwise lose.
The reason for this is completely transparent: The Democrat plan is to keep using Antifa/BLM to ramp up the rioting in advance of Election Day in the hopes of frightening white suburban mothers into voting for Biden in a stupid effort to buy a fool’s notion of “peace.” And when the Election Day results show a Trump landslide, the plan is to use Antifa to create mass havoc all across the country so that the news media has an excuse to focus all of its attention on the riots while the Democrats work to steal the election behind the scenes.
This is a real balancing act the Democrats are trying to pull off where Antifa is concerned. It’s also one more reason why we should not expect to ever see Creepy Joe McWifeMolester standing on the same stage with President Trump in a live debate, unless his handlers can figure out a way to hide a tiny microphone in his ear.
Because Biden would certainly go off-script many times during such a format, and as we have seen so many times, whenever he does that, glorious chaos ensues.
That is all.
