Joe Biden crawled out of his basement to opportunistically tokenize a “Black Lives Matter” protester for a contrived photo op to shamelessly pander for black votes while the nation burned.
Biden made a brief visit Sunday to the site of a “Black Lives Matter” protest that had been held the previous day in Wilmington, Delaware.
Let this sink in: Joe was so enthusiastic to support a black cause that he visited a Black Lives Matter protester the day AFTER the event wrapped up.

Wilmington is where Sleepy Joe has been hiding out for months amid the coronavirus crisis as he desperately hopes voters will forget his racist gaffe when he told black Americans that “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him.
Biden made sure everyone knew about his opportunistic tokenization of a black man by sharing a photo from the short visit.
We are a nation in pain right now, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us.
As President, I will help lead this conversation — and more importantly, I will listen, just as I did today visiting the site of last night's protests in Wilmington. pic.twitter.com/0h2ApbKT0C

During the hasty photo op, the young man that Biden tokenized eagerly said to Obama’s vice president: “You gotta get this crazy guy out of office. Save us please.”
Another young black man in the foreground (the one who took the photo for his friend) chimed in: “You got my vote.”
It’s unclear if the young man was serious, or if he merely uttered those assurances so Biden wouldn’t accuse him of “not being black.”
In a May 31 blog post on the left-wing platform Medium, Biden urged Democrats to stop rioting and looting.
Biden wrote: “Protesting such brutality is right and necessary. But burning down communities and needless destruction is not. Violence that endangers lives is not. Violence that guts and shutters businesses that serve the community is not. The act of protesting should never be allowed to overshadow the reason we protest.”
Over the weekend, countless left-wing “protesters” burned down buildings, looted stores, attacked police officers, and engaged in group beatdowns of white people. In other words, it was just another day for the nihilistic Left.

Joe Biden is trying to retroactively paint himself as a civil rights icon who’s a champion for black Americans. In reality, his résumé for helping anyone (especially black voters) is nonexistent.
Like most Democrats, Biden is all talk and no action. During his two terms as vice president, there was record black welfare.

In 2012, a tone-deaf Biden warned black Americans that they’d be “put back in chains” if they didn’t vote for him and Obama. Imagine the outrage if President Trump said anything like this.

Reminder: Biden’s controversial 1994 crime bill put countless black people behind bars.
In a fiery 1993 speech defending his tough-on-crime bill, Biden warned of “predators on our streets” who “must be removed” from society because they cannot be rehabilitated.
This is a 180-degree turnaround from the soft-on-crime position that leftists now take toward criminals.

At the time, then-Senator Biden had harsh words for street thugs (whom he now sides with), saying they are “predators” who have no excuse for their criminal behavior.
“We have predators on our streets,” Biden said. “We have no choice but to take them out of society — a 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.”
Biden continued: “We must take back the streets. It doesn’t matter whether or not the person that is accosting your son or daughter…were deprived as a youth. It doesn’t matter whether or not they had no background that enabled them to become socialized into the fabric of society. It doesn’t matter whether or not they’re the victims of society. The end result is they’re about to knock my mother on the head with a lead pipe, shoot my sister, beat up my wife, take on my sons.”
Biden concluded: “I don’t care why someone is a malefactor in society. I don’t care why someone is antisocial. I don’t care why they’ve become a sociopath. We have an obligation to cordon them off from the rest of society.”
