Saying, “We will choose hope over fear, facts over fiction, fairness over privilege,” Joe Biden accepts the nomination for President of the United States

TRANSCRIPT:

Good evening.

Ella Baker, a giant of the civil rights movement, left us with this wisdom: Give people light and they will find a way.

Give people light.

Those are words for our time.

The current president has cloaked America in darkness for much too long. Too much anger. Too much fear. Too much division. Here and now, I give you my word: If you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us not the worst. I will be an ally of the light not of the darkness.

It’s time for us, for We the People, to come together. For make no mistake. United we can, and will, overcome this season of darkness in America. We will choose hope over fear, facts over fiction, fairness over privilege.

I am a proud Democrat and I will be proud to carry the banner of our party into the general election. So, it is with great honor and humility that I accept this nomination for President of the United States of America.

But while I will be a Democratic candidate, I will be an American president. I will work as hard for those who didn’t support me as I will for those who did. That’s the job of a president. To represent all of us, not just our base or our party. This is not a partisan moment. This must be an American moment.

It’s a moment that calls for hope and light and love. Hope for our futures, light to see our way forward, and love for one another. America isn’t just a collection of clashing interests of Red States or Blue States. We’re so much bigger than that. We’re so much better than that.

Nearly a century ago, Franklin Roosevelt pledged a New Deal in a time of massive unemployment, uncertainty, and fear. Stricken by disease, stricken by a virus, FDR insisted that he would recover and prevail and he believed America could as well. And he did. And so can we.

This campaign isn’t just about winning votes. It’s about winning the heart, and yes, the soul of America. Winning it for the generous among us, not the selfish. Winning it for the workers who keep this country going, not just the privileged few at the top. Winning it for those communities who have known the injustice of the “knee on the neck”. For all the young people who have known only an America of rising inequity and shrinking opportunity. They deserve to experience America’s promise in full.

No generation ever knows what history will ask of it. All we can ever know is whether we’ll be ready when that moment arrives. And now history has delivered us to one of the most difficult moments America has ever faced.

Four historic crises. All at the same time. A perfect storm. The worst pandemic in over 100 years. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The most compelling call for racial justice since the 60’s. And the undeniable realities and accelerating threats of climate change.

So, the question for us is simple: Are we ready? I believe we are. We must be.

All elections are important. But we know in our bones this one is more consequential. America is at an inflection point. A time of real peril, but of extraordinary possibilities. We can choose the path of becoming angrier, less hopeful, and more divided. A path of shadow and suspicion. Or we can choose a different path, and together, take this chance to heal, to be reborn, to unite. A path of hope and light.

This is a life-changing election that will determine America’s future for a very long time. Character is on the ballot. Compassion is on the ballot. Decency, science, democracy. They are all on the ballot. Who we are as a nation. What we stand for. And, most importantly, who we want to be. That’s all on the ballot. And the choice could not be clearer. No rhetoric is needed. Just judge this president on the facts.

5 million Americans infected with COVID-19. More than 170,000 Americans have died. By far the worst performance of any nation on Earth. More than 50 million people have filed for unemployment this year. More than 10 million people are going to lose their health insurance this year. Nearly one in 6 small businesses have closed this year.

If this president is re-elected we know what will happen. Cases and deaths will remain far too high. More mom and pop businesses will close their doors for good. Working families will struggle to get by, and yet, the wealthiest one percent will get tens of billions of dollars in new tax breaks. And the assault on the Affordable Care Act will continue until its destroyed, taking insurance away from more than 20 million people — including more than 15 million people on Medicaid — and getting rid of the protections that President Obama and I passed for people who suffer from a pre-existing condition.

And speaking of President Obama, a man I was honored to serve alongside for 8 years as Vice President. Let me take this moment to say something we don’t say nearly enough. Thank you, Mr. President. You were a great president. A president our children could — and did — look up to. No one will say that about the current occupant of the office.

What we know about this president is if he’s given four more years he will be what he’s been the last four years. A president who takes no responsibility, refuses to lead, blames others, cozies up to dictators, and fans the flames of hate and division. He will wake up every day believing the job is all about him. Never about you. Is that the America you want for you, your family, your children?

I see a different America. One that is generous and strong. Selfless and humble. It’s an America we can rebuild together. As president, the first step I will take will be to get control of the virus that’s ruined so many lives. Because I understand something this president doesn’t. We will never get our economy back on track, we will never get our kids safely back to school, we will never have our lives back, until we deal with this virus. The tragedy of where we are today is it didn’t have to be this bad. Just look around. It’s not this bad in Canada. Or Europe. Or Japan. Or almost anywhere else in the world.

The President keeps telling us the virus is going to disappear. He keeps waiting for a miracle. Well, I have news for him, no miracle is coming. We lead the world in confirmed cases. We lead the world in deaths. Our economy is in tatters, with Black, Latino, Asian American, and Native American communities bearing the brunt of it. And after all this time, the president still does not have a plan. Well, I do.

If I’m president on day one we’ll implement the national strategy I’ve been laying out since March. We’ll develop and deploy rapid tests with results available immediately. We’ll make the medical supplies and protective equipment our country needs. And we’ll make them here in America. So we will never again be at the mercy of China and other foreign countries in order to protect our own people. We’ll make sure our schools have the resources they need to be open, safe, and effective. We’ll put the politics aside and take the muzzle off our experts so the public gets the information they need and deserve. The honest, unvarnished truth. They can deal with that. We’ll have a national mandate to wear a mask-not as a burden, but to protect each other. It’s a patriotic duty.

In short, I will do what we should have done from the very beginning. Our current president has failed in his most basic duty to this nation. He failed to protect us. He failed to protect America. And, my fellow Americans, that is unforgivable.

As president, I will make you this promise: I will protect America. I will defend us from every attack. Seen. And unseen. Always. Without exception. Every time. Look, I understand it’s hard to have hope right now. On this summer night, let me take a moment to speak to those of you who have lost the most.

I know how it feels to lose someone you love. I know that deep black hole that opens up in your chest. That you feel your whole being is sucked into it. I know how mean and cruel and unfair life can be sometimes. But I’ve learned two things. First, your loved ones may have left this Earth but they never leave your heart. They will always be with you. And second, I found the best way through pain and loss and grief is to find purpose. As God’s children each of us have a purpose in our lives.

And we have a great purpose as a nation: To open the doors of opportunity to all Americans. To save our democracy. To be a light to the world once again. To finally live up to and make real the words written in the sacred documents that founded this nation that all men and women are created equal. Endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Among them life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

You know, my Dad was an honorable, decent man. He got knocked down a few times pretty hard, but always got up. He worked hard and built a great middle-class life for our family. He used to say, “Joey, I don’t expect the government to solve my problems, but I expect it to understand them.” And then he would say: “Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect. It’s about your place in your community. It’s about looking your kids in the eye and say, honey, it’s going to be okay.” I’ve never forgotten those lessons.

That’s why my economic plan is all about jobs, dignity, respect, and community. Together, we can, and we will, rebuild our economy. And when we do, we’ll not only build it back, we’ll build it back better. With modern roads, bridges, highways, broadband, ports and airports as a new foundation for economic growth. With pipes that transport clean water to every community. With 5 million new manufacturing and technology jobs so the future is made in America.

With a health care system that lowers premiums, deductibles, and drug prices by building on the Affordable Care Act he’s trying to rip away. With an education system that trains our people for the best jobs of the 21st century, where cost doesn’t prevent young people from going to college, and student debt doesn’t crush them when they get out. With child care and elder care that make it possible for parents to go to work and for the elderly to stay in their homes with dignity. With an immigration system that powers our economy and reflects our values. With newly empowered labor unions. With equal pay for women. With rising wages you can raise a family on. Yes, we’re going to do more than praise our essential workers. We’re finally going to pay them.

We can, and we will, deal with climate change. It’s not only a crisis, it’s an enormous opportunity. An opportunity for America to lead the world in clean energy and create millions of new good-paying jobs in the process. And we can pay for these investments by ending loopholes and the president’s $1.3 trillion tax giveaway to the wealthiest 1 percent and the biggest, most profitable corporations, some of which pay no tax at all. Because we don’t need a tax code that rewards wealth more than it rewards work. I’m not looking to punish anyone. Far from it. But it’s long past time the wealthiest people and the biggest corporations in this country paid their fair share.

For our seniors, Social Security is a sacred obligation, a sacred promise made. The current president is threatening to break that promise. He’s proposing to eliminate the tax that pays for almost half of Social Security without any way of making up for that lost revenue. I will not let it happen. If I’m your president, we’re going to protect Social Security and Medicare. You have my word.

One of the most powerful voices we hear in the country today is from our young people. They’re speaking to the inequity and injustice that has grown up in America. Economic injustice. Racial injustice. Environmental injustice. I hear their voices and if you listen, you can hear them too. And whether it’s the existential threat posed by climate change, the daily fear of being gunned down in school, or the inability to get started in their first job — it will be the work of the next president to restore the promise of America to everyone.

I won’t have to do it alone. Because I will have a great Vice President at my side. Senator Kamala Harris. She is a powerful voice for this nation. Her story is the American story. She knows about all the obstacles thrown in the way of so many in our country. Women, Black women, Black Americans, South Asian Americans, immigrants, the left-out and left-behind. But she’s overcome every obstacle she’s ever faced. No one’s been tougher on the big banks or the gun lobby. No one’s been tougher in calling out this current administration for its extremism, its failure to follow the law, and its failure to simply tell the truth. Kamala and I both draw strength from our families. For Kamala, it’s Doug and their families.

For me, it’s Jill and ours. No man deserves one great love in his life. But I’ve known two. After losing my first wife in a car accident, Jill came into my life and put our family back together. She’s an educator. A mom. A military Mom. And an unstoppable force. If she puts her mind to it, just get out of the way. Because she’s going to get it done. She was a great Second Lady and she will make a great First Lady for this nation, she loves this country so much. And I will have the strength that can only come from family. Hunter, Ashley and all our grandchildren, my brothers, my sister. They give me courage and lift me up. And while he is no longer with us, Beau inspires me every day. Beau served our nation in uniform. A decorated Iraq war veteran. So I take very personally the profound responsibility of serving as Commander in Chief. I will be a president who will stand with our allies and friends. I will make it clear to our adversaries the days of cozying up to dictators are over.

Under President Biden, America will not turn a blind eye to Russian bounties on the heads of American soldiers. Nor will I put up with foreign interference in our most sacred democratic exercise — voting. I will stand always for our values of human rights and dignity. And I will work in common purpose for a more secure, peaceful, and prosperous world. History has thrust one more urgent task on us. Will we be the generation that finally wipes the stain of racism from our national character? I believe we’re up to it. I believe we’re ready.

Just a week ago yesterday was the third anniversary of the events in Charlottesville. Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and Klansmen and white supremacists coming out of the fields with lighted torches? Veins bulging? Spewing the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ’30s? Remember the violent clash that ensued between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it? Remember what the president said? There were quote, “very fine people on both sides.” It was a wake-up call for us as a country. And for me, a call to action. At that moment, I knew I’d have to run. My father taught us that silence was complicity. And I could not remain silent or complicit. At the time, I said we were in a battle for the soul of this nation. And we are.

One of the most important conversations I’ve had this entire campaign is with someone who is too young to vote. I met with six-year old Gianna Floyd, a day before her Daddy George Floyd was laid to rest. She is incredibly brave. I’ll never forget. When I leaned down to speak with her, she looked into my eyes and said “Daddy, changed the world.” Her words burrowed deep into my heart.

Maybe George Floyd’s murder was the breaking point. Maybe John Lewis’ passing the inspiration. However it has come to be, America is ready to in John’s words, to lay down “the heavy burdens of hate at last” and to do the hard work of rooting out our systemic racism.

America’s history tells us that it has been in our darkest moments that we’ve made our greatest progress. That we’ve found the light. And in this dark moment, I believe we are poised to make great progress again. That we can find the light once more. I have always believed you can define America in one word: Possibilities. That in America, everyone, and I mean everyone, should be given the opportunity to go as far as their dreams and God-given ability will take them. We can never lose that. In times as challenging as these, I believe there is only one way forward. As a united America. United in our pursuit of a more perfect Union. United in our dreams of a better future for us and for our children. United in our determination to make the coming years bright.

Are we ready? I believe we are. This is a great nation. And we are a good and decent people. This is the United States of America. And there has never been anything we’ve been unable to accomplish when we’ve done it together.

The Irish poet Seamus Heaney once wrote:

“History says,
Don’t hope on this side of the grave,
But then, once in a lifetime
The longed-for tidal wave
Of justice can rise up,
And hope and history rhyme”

This is our moment to make hope and history rhyme. With passion and purpose, let us begin — you and I together, one nation, under God — united in our love for America and united in our love for each other. For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. Light is more powerful than dark. This is our moment. This is our mission.

May history be able to say that the end of this chapter of American darkness began here tonight as love and hope and light joined in the battle for the soul of the nation. And this is a battle that we, together, will win. I promise you.

Thank you. And may God bless you. And may God protect our troops.

    I feel inspired! I always assumed I would just get dementia and then immediately join Mark and Jean at a memory care center in Saline. The future possibilities seems limitless now, thanks to Joe. He broke the glass ceiling. It is a great day for aging dim whits in cognitive decline everywhere!

    Trump’s approval rating has gone up during the Democratic Convention. It will soar during the Republican Convention. The Dems have no plans other than Trump bashing, gun confiscation, support for criminals, opposition to moral values, and demolition of our cities and economy.

    Imagine being stupid enough to, when confronted by Donald Trump and Joe Biden side by side, say that Biden is the one in “opposition to moral values”.

    This helps explain why people gave $25 million for a fake wall so that Bannon could by plastic surgery for his friends.

    EEL, the reason isn’t that they are stupid, it is that their moral values are 1. white supremacy and 2. patriarchy. Straight up. So yes, it makes sense that they can view a guy like Biden and see him as being in opposition to their moral values.

    I thought it was a good speech. I don’t think there was evidence there of any cognitive issues in that speech and most of the ones I have seen brought up can be explained by Biden’s history of stuttering.

    Biden needed to deliver last night and he did!

    The only real question now is did enough racists and misogynists die off since 2016? And did the Green Party voters and the non voters learn that not voting or voting third party has dire consequences? We will find out in November!

    I don’t usually consider FF to have much to contribute but I think his POV from someone with an empty mind should be considered.

    Love that voter shaming Lynne. Every time you engage in it, I question my commitment to vote for neo- liberal austerity, mass incarceration, and a continuation of the war economy. It is obvious the Democrats have no room in their tent for antiwar folks. And I know RBG is not going to live forever, so try using positive arguments.

    Cassandra,

    I do think it was well written speech and Joe did a good job reading it. The centers of his brain which control speech-reading are apparently still there. On the other hand, you could train a child to deliver a speech that the child did not understand. He is the perfect candidate in a way. An empty vessel to capture the votes of the empty vessels. An empty vessel to execute whatever plan his handlers want.

    Same goes for zero integrity Kamala. Praising the same man now when she was accusing the same man of being a racist rapist a few weeks. Empty. Vessels.

    EOS comment re a Trump bump in the polls is accurate. To a point. The Rsmussen poll showed him at 51% approval/47% disapproval rating right after the convention and the start of his campaign. That was adjusted upon review by 538 down to 46% approval/47% disapproval. (link below) Still it represented a bump up. We should not be too surprised given that attacks by the Dems reliably lead to more reactive allegiance to Trump temporarily. That’s how confirmation bias works.

    68% of voters including many Trump supporters find him an embarrassment as our nation’s leader. I know conservatives are incredibly loyal but don’t see how they overcome that.

    EOS reliably says here exactly what I hear on conservative talk radio the day before. It’s like clockwork. They are a good parrot.

    You think it is a myth. It has definitely been tested on people. That is documented. Presumably from animal glands but no doubt it would be different from a human pineal gland. The real issue is you can’t imagine it could be true that there are satanists in government and the business world.

    It also could be true that Mark is Q. This whole site is a false flag honey trap to call out his true enemies.

    I would agree it is incredible in the sense of being hard to believe. To this day none of the cowards here have been willing to take the time to learn about the case I was referring to.

    Hunter Thompson was named by a victim of the Franklin Nebraska/Washington D.C. abuse ring as a participant in producing pornographic child snuff films. Specific details of the location noted by the victim at the time in the early-mid 80’s are consistent with known features of the Bohemian Grove.

    Well so far, we’ve established that satanists control government and business, adrenochrome is extracted from human victims for anti-aging properties, a bit about cannibals and pedophiles that I’m not good at keeping straight because it’s very complex, and Bill Gates tracking us with chips injected via vaccination. Also that because voter fraud is so uncommonly discovered that it must be even more common that we can even imagine.

    OK, Bill Gates did not specifically mention injecting micro chips with vaccination. He said, “Eventually we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.”

    https://www.gatesnotes.com/Health/A-coronavirus-AMA?WT.mc_id=20200319223000_Coronavirus-AMA_BG-LI&WT.tsrc=BGLI&linkId=84658834

    Where will these digital certificates be kept and how could one verify the identity of each person who has a digital certificate? It could be kept on a smart phone. But then what would prevent using another person’s phone to gain access to whatever place would have a need to check an individual’s digital certificate. Why would anyone think that RFID chips could be implanted in humans? Well, it’s already being done.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2018/09/how-i-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-microchip/570946/

    So MSM reports that it is a wild conspiracy theory that Bill Gates is promoting some kind of electronic tracking device. But there have been reports that he is funding research into exactly that.

    https://www.wakingtimes.com/2020/04/20/bill-gates-and-intellectual-ventures-funds-microchip-implant-vaccine-technology/

    But Gates has been funding world wide vaccination programs for years. He predicted an emergent virus would be spread around the world. (as did a number of others).

    The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and World Economic Forum had conducted a pandemic simulation “just six weeks before the real outbreak.” Event 201 was a tabletop exercise that simulated a global pandemic, which resulted from a new coronavirus. The program was hosted in October 2019 by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and World Economic Forum.

    The invite-only event featured medical professionals, policy experts and business analysts all focused on how different institutions would respond to the onset of a deadly virus. The fictional coronavirus — a coronavirus, in general, being a specific kind of virus — in the scenario killed 65 million people over 18 months. Joint recommendations from participants urged international cooperation both in preparing for and handling a pandemic.

    Nobody is required to take me seriously. Just keep believing MSM even when they prove themselves to be biased and dishonest over and over.

    I posted the links before, FF. I guess it was bad planning on my part not to assume you and EOS would be making these claims again.

    If my memory is not completely failing me, long-term care facility deaths account for about a third of all COVID-19 deaths here in Michigan. In Ohio, deaths in long-term care facilities account for more than half of their deaths. In fact, most states have a majority of their COVID-19 deaths occurring in long-term care facilities.

    Granted, Michigan has had an extraordinary number of deaths overall and therefor many deaths outside of long-term care facilities. It ranks high in deaths per capita. So maybe I should focus on comparing it to other states with similarly high rates of deaths per capita.

    To start, here’s a look at data reported by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. They have a list on their site ranking the states by average number of deaths per 1,000 residents. I’ve added a (D) for states with Democratic Party governors and (R) for states with Republican Party governors. Please feel free to correct me on any mistakes I may have made in transposing the info.

    The GOP governs the state with the highest rate of long-term care deaths, but governs only 2 of the worst 5 states, and only 4 of the worst 10. But among the worst 20, the Democratic and Republican parties are evenly split in governing.

    124.7 (R) Massachusetts
    116.5 (D) New Jersey
    101.4 (D) Connecticut
    87.5 (D) Rhode Island
    71.8 (R) Louisiana
    68.3 (D) District of Columbia
    66.4 (D) Pennsylvania
    60.2 (R) Mississippi
    59.9 (R) Maryland

    I agree with EOS that fact-checking sites should not be assumed to be a final authority. But I shared a video of a doctor going point to point through the entire Plandemic video.

    You are not conservative. That’s a bald-faced lie. You didn’t work for Democratic Congressman because you lean Republican.

    I watched the entire link you posted. The doctor stated some factual information, some half-truths, and some erroneous beliefs. He would play 1-2 sentences out of context, and then offer a refute, often one that was totally off the topic discussed in the full video.

    One point he made was that hydroxychloroquine was not banned for use in COVID patients, but restricted to those severely ill in hospitals on ventilators and it hasn’t been effective. But many doctors have been using it very effectively as soon as persons test positive. This use allowed them to recover quickly and not need hospitalization.

    Another point in his video showed Fauci saying that a vaccine against any virus provides lasting immunity. Is anyone stupid enough to believe that?

    The woman’s PhD research involved showing that some vaccines were contaminated with other viruses and that these viruses were transmitted to humans when they are vaccinated. Specifically she showed a vaccine to be contaminated with MMLV, which is a retrovirus associated with cancers.

    The initial polio vaccines were also found to be contaminated with SV40 virus, also associated with cancers.

    When you make a vaccine, you grow lots of virus in a lab, isolate the virus and kill it, or make it less viable, and the inject it into humans to enable them to develop an immune response.

    You need mammalian cell lines to grow viruses that infect humans. The doctor in your video claimed it made no sense that the PhD stated that flu vaccines were grown in dog cells. But she was saying that when you grow the flu virus in dog cell lines, and then isolate the virus, you also isolate other viruses that are present in the cell line. Because dogs frequently have coronaviruses, they became included in the flu vaccines. When you got the flu vaccine, you also were exposed to other coronaviruses. Not Covid 19, which is novel, but other viruses from that family. When you then get exposed to covid19, you trigger an inflammatory response as a result of the flu vaccine that was contaminated with other coronaviruses. The inflammatory response doesn’t kill covid19, but has a detrimental effect on the patient, causing lung scarring, heart damage, etc.

    Many people get covid and have absolutely no symptoms. For those who do have symptoms, the symptoms are not caused by the virus itself, but by the inflammatory response to the virus. The best treatment they have found to date for those who have severe symptoms involves using dexamethasone, which is a steroid used to reduce inflammation.

    The published study by the VA showed a 36% increased risk of getting Infected with a Coronavirus when the patient had received a flu vaccine.

    The woman lifelong research has shown that retroviruses that contaminate vaccines can lie dormant in a patient for many years, but then are activated when the patient is infected with additional viruses.

    The doctor in your video seems credible and likable to the general public. Using his profession as a doctor is an appeal to authority and an effective fallacy to use to persuade the general public which has limited aptitude for scientific analysis.

    Both he and Fauci have voiced very unscientific opinions at times which very much reduced their credibility to me.

    Fauci has said that Covid-19 could not have been created in a lab. Another half- truth. The virus could have been isolated in the wild and amplified through cell culture in mammalian cell lines or through PCR. But the Wuhan lab was given NIH grant funds to engage in gain of function research to study the exact mutations that make infection of human cells most likely. The genetic sequence that allows it to bind to a human receptor is extremely specific. In addition, the sequence shares homologous with a portion of the HIV genome. So a Fauci is being dishonest when he says covid19 could not have come from a lab. It is most likely a wild type virus that has been genetically mutated in a lab. And if you show me factchecking websites that say it couldn’t have come from a lab, they are lying also. Even if the virus is identical to a wild type virus, it could have come from a lab. Whether it was an accidental release or a bio weapon has yet to be determined.

    Wobblie,

    The publications confirm that our vaccines are contaminated with a number of retroviruses. Yes, the effect of this is not yet clearly understood.

    But that does not mean we can hide forever, because this COVID 19 virus, and others to come, will be with us for a long time. There was recently a documented case in Hong Kong where an individual was infected in April and the reinfected 4 months later with another COVID 19 strain. The virus mutates rapidly, any immunity is short lived, and infection by one strain doesn’t confer immunity to another strain. A vaccine will be of limited benefit.

    I think it is safe for me to come out of the bunker now, because there are therapeutic treatments that have been proven beneficial and our local hospitals are not currently overwhelmed with patients.

    If I live, I can help others. If I die, I will go to be with the Lord for eternity. I have nothing to fear.

Did you hear about the man who was executed on the floor of a hotel by a sadistic cop? His crime? He waved a BB gun or some shit out the window of the room. It was ill. All lives don’t matter though I guess.

    See, even Minority Report precrime led to premature incarceration rather than extrajudicial executions.

    Problem is you are saying it’s systemic racism and are using that to justify violence and destruction (“peaceful protests”) but it’s clearly not. Black people are a little bit less likely to be shot than whites for the same crime.

    Something tells me that Vague Guy is not interested in discussing crime stats/studies. It is funny to watch Vague Guy pretend like he is making points, though.

    Death cult attitude “ Black people are a little bit less likely to be shot than whites for the same crime.”
    So much for trials and such, as long as the police are just as violent and murderous with white folks, it is ok.
    One thing we can be certain of, facts do not matter to the death cult. Notice the clever manner in which the Faceless Fascist phrased his factless assertion

    “ Sadly, the trend of fatal police shootings in the United States seems to only be increasing, with a total 558 civilians having been shot, 111 of whom were Black, as of July 29, 2020. In 2018, there were 996 fatal police shootings, and in 2019 this figure increased to 1,004. Additionally, the rate of fatal police shootings among Black Americans was much higher than that for any other ethnicity, standing at 31 fatal shootings per million of the population as of July 2020. “

    FF, HW, EOS and I will not be voting for Biden. We don’t want what that would bring; “No religion. No anything. Hurt the Bible. Hurt God.”

    I think FF, HW and EOS agree with me that we would not be comfortable with no anything. I’m pretty sure we each like some things.

    And even though none of us are Christians, obviously, we don’t want to see the Bible hurt.
