Former Vice President and 2020 Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden issued a statement condemning Donald Trump’s use of Homeland Security Forces in Portland, Oregon, and other American cities.
The statement reads:
“We have a president who is determined to sow chaos and division. To make matters worse instead of better. We all remember the appalling scenes in front of the White House when peaceful protestors were gassed to make way for a Trump photo op. Now Homeland Security agents — without a clearly defined mandate or authority — are ranging far from federal property, stripped of badges and insignia and identifying markings, to detain people. They are brutally attacking peaceful protestors, including a U.S. Navy veteran. Of course, the U.S. government has the right and duty to protect federal property. The Obama-Biden administration protected federal property across the country without resorting to these egregious tactics — and without trying to stoke the fires of division in this country. We need a president who will bring us together instead of tearing us apart, calm instead of inflaming, and enforce the law faithfully rather than put his political interests first.”
This is the United States, not Mussolini’s Italy, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Hitler’s Germany, Peron’s Argentina, Castro’s Cuba, or Pinochet’s Chile.
If Joe Biden and Rand Paul can agree that these secret police paramilitary units are a threat to the American Ideal, then the rest of the country should be able to today and 105 days from now on election day.
Personal freedom, Democracy, the Republic, and the soul of the country are at stake.
