Biden staff donate to group that pays bail in riot-torn Minneapolis

Campaign staff for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden are advertising their donations to a group that pays bail fees in Minneapolis after the city’s police jailed people protesting the killing of a black man by a white police officer.

At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.

Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”

Biden’s campaign staff, in their Twitter posts, called attention to U.S. inequities based on race and income. “It is up to everyone to fight injustice,” Colleen May, who identified herself as an campaign organizer for Biden in South Carolina, Wisconsin and Florida, said in a Twitter post that included an image of her receipt from donating $50 to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

But, they say the rioter trouble makers are white nationalists.

Funny they would bail them out.

So, by their actions, Biden supporters support violence?

The Democrats have their fingerprints on a lot of these things these days. Domestic spying on President Trump, collusion with China on the Wuhan flu, and now these riots popping up all over the country in “memory” of George Floyd. Yeah, right! What do they have planned next for America? They won’t go down quietly, and they will be instigating mayhem and trouble now till November.

I imagine you are only arrested if you are causing violence or looting. So Joe Biden is on the side of the White Supremacists causing trouble.

Let me guess. They aren’t bailing out the pawn shop owner arrested for taking out the trash.

If true, that’s one more gife for PDJT’s campaign. Keep it up, Slow Joe — adding nails to your campaign coffin.

Biden refuses to condemn the violence, and now supports people arrested for violence and looting.

The few White nationalist marches I’ve seen on TV usually had at best a dozen or two marchers and usually hundreds of spectators jeering at them. Now we’re supposed to believe they organized all this mayhem and have alliances with groups like ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter? Bull crap to all of it. Does anyone really believe the Klan and the Neo Nazis are powerful enough to do any of this? You can smell the desperation coming from the left in their continuing “crusade” to defeat Donald Trump by whatever means necessary!

The early contributors could have some cover before it got ugly. Donating today? Clearly you support devastating neighborhoods that will be soon complaining they are food deserts.

So the guy that authored the legislation that put more blacks in prison than ever before now wants to bail blacks out of jail. You can’t make this stuff up.
