All Woke Up: Biden’s criminal bailout

Empower Wisconsin | June 2, 2020

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is so woke more than a dozen staff members have donated cash to bail suspected rioters, looters, vandals, and assaulters out of jail. 

As Reuters reported, at least 13 staffers on the Democratic former vice president’s campaign have been promoting their cash contributions to an organization that pays bail fees. The looter relief package appears to be targeted to the violent demonstrators who have taken over otherwise peaceful protests against the death of a black man while in police custody in Minneapolis. 

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Reuters in a statement that the Democrats’ presumptive presidential nominee opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”

“But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests,” Reuters reported. 

“Bates instead pointed to Biden’s comments that protesters have the right to be angry but that more violence won’t solve justice problems.”

That’s a tricky argument to make when your campaign staff is bailing out the same people who are burning down Minneapolis in the pursuit of “social justice.” 

But that’s how the painfully woke roll. And now old Joe is doing whatever he can to show he’s part of woke show. 

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Saturday said it was “disturbing” that Biden’s team “would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building,” in an email about the Reuters story that called for Biden to condemn the riots.

“It is up to everyone to fight injustice,” Colleen May, who identified herself as an campaign organizer for Biden in South Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida, said in a Twitter post that included an image of her receipt from donating $50 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
