The Biden administration appears to finally be making an outreach effort, albeit an extremely meager one, toward the victims of the Waukesha, Wisconsin rampage.
On Friday, the Office of The First Lady announced that she and second gentleman Doug Emhoff intend to “travel to Milwaukee and Waukesha” on the afternoon of Wednesday, Dec. 15th.
Their visit will come roughly 3-1/2 weeks after black nationalist suspect Darrell Brooks allegedly drove his red SUV through a Christmas parade, injuring dozens of people and killing six, including a child.
Following the rampage, conservatives bashed Democrats and their media allies for quickly burying the story because the facts of the case boded badly for their narratives about “black victimhood” and “white supremacy.”

That being said, no additional information has been released about the first lady and second gentleman’s trip to Waukesha, meaning it’s not entirely clear that their visit is about meeting with the victims of the rampage.
And even if the visit is about the victims, questions still remain. For one, why did it take so many weeks for a visit to be scheduled? Also, why the first lady and second gentlemen? Why not President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris?
After all, both eagerly traveled to Kenosha, Wisconsin last year to meet with the family of Jacob Blake, the sexual abuser and rapist who was non-fatally shot by the police after he reached for a knife while resisting arrest.
Yet in the face of six completely innocent people being murdered by a black nationalist, the president and vice president seem disturbingly unconcerned, critics say.
In fact, given this administration’s demonstrable love of criminals, some critics sarcastically wonder whether the first lady and second gentlemen’s real intention in traveling to Waukesha is to meet with the rampage suspect. Or perhaps they’re visiting to post Brooks’ bail? You never know.
Look at the sometimes sarcastic backlash below:
Weeks late and sending the B-Team. What’s next?
Additional details: They’re going there to visit the killer?

To bail out the killer?

Will they tell this guy they’re proud of him too?

Will they be stopping by Jacob Blake’s house while they are there?

Glad the president cares so very little.

What a joke. It’s the other two clowns that should be showing face. Again I’m at a loss for words and those running what used to be a great country.

Too little, too late. Not sincere, and no substance.

In the immediate aftermath of the Nov. 21st rampage, the president issued a lightweight statement deriding the “horrific act of violence” and offering thoughts/prayers for the victims. He then jetted off for an early Thanksgiving vacation at a $30 million estate in Nantucket.
Critics noted at the time that following the spa shootings in Atlanta last spring — which as a reminder were falsely described as hate crimes at the time — the president not only ordered flags to be lowered to half-mast but also immediately visited the city.
His behavior fit with an obvious pattern of the administration seeking to politically capitalize on any tragedy that ostensibly involves race.
Both Biden and Harris rushed to judgment after Kyle Rittenhouse killed three extremists during the Kenosha riots in 2020, using the shooting to tout their false narrative about “white supremacist violence.”
Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges last month on account of indisputable evidence showing that he’d opened fired in self-defense — and that the only racists among those involved had been the men who he’d shot.
The president responded to the acquittal not by apologizing for his prior smears of Rittenhouse but by expressing his disappointment.
Similarly, neither he nor the vice president apologized after Hollywood actor Jussie Smollett was found guilty last week of perpetrating a race crime hoax. In fact, their original tweets expressing support for Smollett still remain up:
What happened today to @JussieSmollett must never be tolerated in this country. We must stand up and demand that we no longer give this hate safe harbor; that homophobia and racism have no place on our streets or in our hearts. We are with you, Jussie. https://t.co/o8ilPu68CM

.@JussieSmollett is one of the kindest, most gentle human beings I know. I’m praying for his quick recovery.
This was an attempted modern day lynching. No one should have to fear for their life because of their sexuality or color of their skin. We must confront this hate.
— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) January 29, 2019
Note that the tweets were posted within hours of Smollett making his notorious hate crime claim on Jan. 29th, 2019.
Again, it seems that so long as a crime can be used to boost their political narratives, Democrats are always quick to respond. But when a crime can’t be used, then it’s always a different story …
