Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Tuesday called for the arrest of violent protesters while taking questions for the first time in 28 days.
The former vice president struck a discordant tone with fellow liberals who insist protests against the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police are peaceful, and that authorities are to blame for any violence in Portland and other cities.
I think we do need to hold those who violate the law accountable, Biden said. We should never let whats done in a march for equal rights overcome what the reason for the march is. And thats what these folks are doing. And they should be arrested found, arrested and tried.
Bidens call for the prosecution of violent protesters may further alienate leftist politicians uneasy with Bidens decades of centrist policies.
This week, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) said she would not endorse Biden and a co-chair of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders presidential campaign, former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, likened voting for Biden to eating a bowl of ---t.
The event was the first time Biden took questions since a June 30 briefing.

Maybe Tlaib could eat half a bowl of sh!t. It’s halal, or so I understand..
Yeah, the Democrats are starting to get nervous. They have to realize this violence is not playing well for America. Too little too late. So sad too bad as the saying goes, the damage has been done. Democrats will pay, at the ballot box, come Nov. 3rd.
We can only hope. Sure seems like 1972 again
Don’t even try.
You’ll get a brain hemorrhage.
The heavily loaded with gravitas Kamela agrees that criminals need to go to jail.
Well, at least she used to.
I guess the polls are souring on the DNC’s “Summer of Love?”
Dems will pay Nov 3 but will this all stop or get worse? My money is on worse. Biden would embolden but another Trump 4 years and look out.
Except all the violent protesters are “mostly peaceful”.
He’s the Mr Haney of Presidential candidates.
You, Mr. Biden call it a March for equal rights. We call it sedition for Marxism. You are a senile moron. The mormon part had always existed. The senile part is relatively new. Now STFU and stop giving people with dementia a poor image.
This talk will really hurt him with the dems. And if the Harris rumors are true, he might be beyond hope soon.
Something happened in the DNC over the weekend. Either they realized they couldn’t wrangle the socialists into supporting Biden, polling said the riots were helping Trump, or they never intended to let the socialists run the party in the first place and this is just what the next phase of the campaign getting rolled out.
If Yogi were here, he’d say, “he doesn’t understand what he doesn’t mean”.
