(RepublicanNews.org) – The nation remains on edge in the wake of nearly a year of violent protests. Black Lives Matter activists and Antifa members launched an all-out assault on American cities in the wake of the death of George Floyd, last May. A Minnesota jury convicted former police officer Derek Chaufin on April 20 of three felonies, including second and third-degree murder and manslaughter, for his role in Floyd’s death.
President Joe Biden spoke out about the verdict later that evening. He played down the severity of the protests, stating they “unified people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose.” Really?
Fox News host Sean Hannity took Biden to task for that ridiculous claim during his show’s opening the following night.
Sean Hannity Blasts Biden’s Lie
Hannity began the segment tearing into the radical Left’s idea of police reform. “Radical reform? Defund the police? Dismantle the police?” he stated. He also pointed out the efforts of “Squad” member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to disarm the police during traffic stops.
Continuing, he shredded Biden’s characterization of the past year’s protests as peaceful and held for a purpose. “What did [Biden] mean?” Hannity asked. Continuing, he tore into Biden for failing to speak out against the violent protests that swept the country.
He didn’t mention the violent protests at the Democratic National Convention. He ignored them after rioters burned down a police precinct in Minneapolis. Portland, Seattle, and other Democratic-led cities burned for weeks, yet Biden had nothing to say.
As Hannity concluded, the nation is heading into another summer filled with violent protests. And what does President Biden do? Instead of calming the nation’s nerves and calling for justice for all, he’s “pouring fuel on the fire.” Shame on him.
