Joe Biden made a statement that many in the GOP find quite alarming. The 2020 presidential candidate told MSNBC’s Joy Reid that if the Democrats don’t think they can defeat the GOP or President Donald Trump, then they should start a “physical revolution.” Well, it didn’t take long for the former vice-president to really regret it. Don’t miss this.
Joe Biden’s big problem is he makes crazy statements and later the leftist media help him out and interpret them in a way that takes Biden off the hook. This is exactly what happened when Barack Obama’s sidekick called for hot war in the streets, also called a “physical revolution,” if the Democrats can’t defeat the Republicans.
Speaking at the Poor People’s Campaign summit on Monday, the Democratic frontrunner was asked by MSNBC host Joy Reid about how he would handle a GOP-controlled Senate headed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has vowed to halt progressive legislation.
“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones that thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together,” Biden responded. “The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive.”
The former Delaware senator expressed how it sometimes takes a “brass knuckle fight” and reflected how he successfully campaigned during the 2018 midterms to help flip the House in favor of Democrats.
“You have to go out and beat these folks if they don’t agree with you by making your case,” Biden explained. “And that’s what presidents are supposed to do, persuade people, move the public as to what’s going on.”
Biden then argued that there’s always a “rationale for compromise” with Republicans, pointing to the Obama-era Recovery Act where he boasted “three Republican votes” that he garnered in order to get it passed.
“If you start off with the notion there’s nothing you can do, well, why don’t you all go home then?” Biden continued. “Or let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it. Because we have to be able to change what we’re doing within our system.”
Immediately, the leftist media was spinning this as Joe Biden talking about Bernie Sanders. Except, if we use the same standard the leftist media use with Trump, where does Biden mention Sanders?
He doesn’t. At best, Joe Biden is making no sense. At worst, he is calling for hot revolution with the use of force in the streets. And that’s exactly how Senator John Cornyn saw Biden’s statement.
“What does Joe Biden mean when he calls for a physical revolution,” tweeted Senator Cornyn.

“Probably something like [Hing Kong protests] this followed by the next election. People are tired as hell of the crazy and you don’t have the political courage to stop any of it. Even when you agree,” tweeted Twitter user “Johnny Pants.”

“Can’t believe Biden is advocating for revolution. Guess he’s on the team now… I say we assign him to a suicide mission,” tweeted Buford Montessori.

“Biden just indicated that physical revolution should happen, if indeed nothing can be done to change the systemic ills that the Poor People’s Campaign exposes,” tweeted Twitter user “Lamb’s Harbinger.”

Biden later told the crowd that you “can shame people to do things the right way.” At the same event, Biden predicted he can win states no Democrat has won in presidential elections in decades.
“I plan on campaigning in the South. I plan on — if I’m your nominee — winning Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, believe it or not,” Biden said. Well, it certainly seems he was not in his right mind. Winning Georgia? Or any of the Carolinas? Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
If Joe Biden needs this interpreted, never fear. Many of his sycophants were out on social media calling Trump supporters crazy who claimed the former Veep needs to clear this statement up. For now, Trump supporters will give the Democrats and their cohorts in the media some of their own medicine. Joe Biden needs to clear up his own words. We will take everything he says literally, just like they do to President Trump.
