Charlotte, NC — Look no further if you were in search of more proof that Democrats see black Americans as political pawns to be used up and cast aside. The only difference now is it’s not an election year. If you’re looking for an example of this stupidity, look no further than Joe Biden’s idiotic call for ‘protests’ over yesterday’s shooting of Duante Wright.
The shooting is being described as an accidental discharge. Also, race played no factor in this matter, but rather outstanding warrants and fleeing the scene of a traffic stop did. Sadly, there are insane people living among us who voted to elect a senile imbecile who hasn’t a clue as to what he’s saying. His handlers are perfectly aware that protests will eventually give way to violence, looting, and destruction of property. These patterns of destroying minority-owned businesses. we saw repeatedly just 9 months ago.

It’s hard to understate how irresponsible this is. While Biden insists he only wants “peaceful” protests, did the protests in Minneapolis yesterday stay peaceful? Of course not. They devolved into destroying multiple businesses, widespread looting, and a cop getting cracked in the head with a brick. Biden doesn’t care, though, because he gets to sit in the White House eating his pudding and going to bed at 7:00 PM.
Further, what exactly is he wanting people to protest over? Accidental discharges? Police serving arrest warrants? There is a possibility that the officer involved in the Wright shooting was criminally negligent in discharging her weapon (though it certainly won’t constitute murder), but even then, it would still have been a mishap and not intentional. So again, what are people supposed to be protesting?
In a tweet posted yesterday, the former vice president stated: “Today I’m thinking about Daunte Wright and his family — and the pain, anger, and trauma that Black America experiences every day. While we await a full investigation, we know what we need to do to move forward: rebuild trust and ensure accountability so no one is above the law.”

What Biden doesn’t seem to grasp are the conflicting statements within this tweet alone. While it would make sense to a sane individual, Biden heads a party that lacks that adjective. While I’m certain the feelings the Wright family are currently facing are an accurate representation, waiting for a full investigation is rich given that Minneapolis is currently burning for the second major time in as many years. And I say years in the calendar sense.
In fact, it was only a few months ago that George Floyd lost his life and riots and those ‘mostly peaceful’ protests began. Mostly peaceful protests means they’re partially violent. Biden’s comments about waiting for a full investigation run contrary to everything the Left stands for now. In fact, Fox News has reported that Minneapolis’ City Manager has been relieved of his duties, and the deputy city manager will be assuming his duties moving forward. Further, Mayor Mike Elliott reassured he would work ‘diligently’ to ensure ‘good leadership’ at all levels of their city government.
Ultimately, in a country of 330 million people, the number of police killings of unarmed Black people has been in the single digits. There is no such thing as systemic racism and this imaginary thing. Additionally, there is no hunting of Black people. Of course, the police can always get better at their jobs as there are some really dumb, reckless cops out there, and we should all call them out when things happen.
The main take-away and, the other thing missing from Biden’s tweet, is the protests over the Wright shooting seem to be completely unnecessary. What’s more, the costs of actions like these are never worth it.
