Biden Begs for Votes while Continuing to Bomb Gaza

Feb 12, 2024

When political analyses showed that Biden would suffer a hit in Michigan for his support of the bombing of Gaza, he decided that he needed to do damage control.

First, he sent members of his political team to Metropolitan Detroit’s Dearborn, Michigan, home to the largest Arab-American population in the country.

When Dearborn officials rebuked his team, saying that they were not interested in a talk about elections when they were fighting for a halt to the genocide in Gaza, Biden’s team regrouped.

Then they sent representatives from the Biden administration to launch a P.R. campaign to pat down the truth about how the U.S. government, headed by Biden, supplied the military might and the political clout to kill what is now estimated to be 28,000 Palestinians. At the same time, Israel was continuing this killing and bombing up to this very moment.

Biden’s deputy national security adviser expressed regret for what he called missteps made by the U.S. He pledged the administration would do better. He apologized for the oversight of never mentioning Palestinian deaths during the first 100 days of the conflict. And, oh, yes, they said they should have reacted more strongly to refute statements by Israeli military leaders that they were “fighting human animals.” Apparently, they forgot that Biden said that Israel had, not only a right, but an obligation, to bomb Gaza.

Now that Gaza has been decimated, now that at least 28,000 civilians are dead, now that a majority of the population has been forced out of their homes, only to relocate to the south of Gaza where they are now threatened by a new renewed ground invasion, now that Gaza is rubble.…

How do they even dare to mouth this garbage publicly?

The rotten opportunism of rotten politicians has no limit, apparently.

Stop the violence raining on Gaza!
