Biden’s Profound Prescience on Today’s Unrest?

Democrat Presidential Candidate Joe Biden has been in politics since 1970, and was the fifth youngest senator in history when elected in 1972. With fifty years in politics under his belt – including eight as Vice President of the United States – he’s bound to have some insightful comments.

Here are just a couple:

“Unless we do something about that cadre of young people – tens of thousands of them – born out of wedlock, without parents, without supervision, without any structure, without any conscience developing…because they literally have not been socialized….If we don’t, they will, or a portion of them will, become the predators fifteen years from now – and Madam President, we have predators on our streets, that society has, in fact, in part because of its neglect, created. Again, it does not mean, because we created them, that we somehow forgive them or do not take them out of society to protect my family and yours from them. They are beyond the pale, many of those people, beyond the pale, and it’s a sad commentary on society. We have no choice but to take them out of society, and the truth is we don’t very well know how to rehabilitate them at that point. That’s the sad truth.”

- Democrat Senator and Presidential Nominee Joe Biden, November 18, 1993 (advocating the Biden/Hatch Crime Bill which eventually became the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 signed by President Clinton)

“I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. You don’t need an AR-15—it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use, and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!”

- Democrat Senator and Presidential Nominee Joe Biden, February 11, 2013

“I did what Joe Biden told me to do. I went outside and fired my shotgun in the air.”

- Washington State resident Jefferey Barton, July 18, 2013 (after being arrested for firing a warning shot into the air to protect his property)

Rhetorically (or, hypothetically, I always get those confused…but, I digress!) speaking how much more rioting, destruction, looting, violence, death, and self-defense will occur if President Trump is duly re-elected?

Thanks for Reading!
