Joe And Kamala Have A Bail Problem
Joe And Kamala Have A Bail Problem
There’s a bail problem brewing with Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. A bail problem involving the destructive rioting looting thugs we’ve watched destroy huge swaths of Minneapolis, Portland, Kenosha, and other cities. Kamala and Biden have swung into action from his basement and are busy blaming Trump for all the violence. There’s a big problem with their blame game.
“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.”
But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests.
Bates instead pointed to Biden’s comments that protesters have the right to be angry but that more violence won’t solve justice problems.”
Well…isn’t that special??!! It’s a story that slipped under the radar for quite a few folks, myself included. The interesting thing about this bail fund and who helps run it? ActBlue is a Democrat online fundraising platform. One that relies upon recurring donations from individual donors. Supposedly one can go online, look at the candidates platforms, decide who to support and donate. I have to wonder how many people found out later that that donation wasn’t a one time thing?
But I digress.
Campaign staffers from the Biden Presidential campaign donated through ActBlue to help destructive rioters post bail. That is, if the prosecutors charged the rioters and the judges granted bail. In Portland and in Minneapolis in some cases, quite a few of the rioters arrested weren’t even charged and allowed to walk out of jail that day or the next morning.
Joe Biden isn’t the only one with a bail problem. Kamala has one as well.
If you’re able to, chip in now to the @MNFreedomFund to help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota. https://t.co/t8LXowKIbw— Kamala Harris (@KamalaHarris) June 1, 2020
Furthermore, she willingly encouraged, in a cringy giggly interview with Steven Colbert, the riots to continue through and beyond the November election.
But you see, it doesn’t matter that Joe and Kamala tacitly supported the continuation of the riots by their silence as well as by encouraging and donating to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. It doesn’t matter that many of those responsible for the destruction of businesses and livelihoods across Minneapolis, in Portland, Seattle, Denver and more are walking around scot-free because of the Democrat party. Nope, none of that is OUR fault you see. It’s Trump’s fault that we are enabling the looting and rioting! Ted Wheeler said so himself!
Meanwhile, at some point, in Pennsylvania today, Joe will have something great and fabulous to say. With the end result that the riots will come to a screeching halt. Except there’s a problem.
“Joe Biden last week called for a halt to the violence, though it took him longer than many Democrats wanted. The Democratic nominee decided over the weekend that he would not travel to the pivotal battleground state on Monday ahead of Trump’s visit. Instead, the Biden campaign plans to ramp up messaging that Trump’s rhetoric has only inflamed hostilities on the streets, beginning with a speech in Pennsylvania Monday.
Biden’s attempt to quell the violence from afar is only boosting Trump in the must-win swing state, some Wisconsin Democrats contended.
“The play is for Wisconsin. We are a swing county in a swing state. Trump just won it. Flat out,” Warthen said of the politics following the Blake shooting. “The local government looked inept. The state government looked inept. And right or wrong, he gets to play the strongman.””
Very telling that Democrats in a state that Hillary lost because she never campaigned IN the state are now having big problems with Joe hiding in his basement.
But wait! Joe and Kamala are condemning the violence, so all should be good…right? Here are some of the folks who received bail due to the largess of the donations ($35 million!) through ActBlue.
among the ppl who were bailed out by @MNFreedomFund (which Harris promoted) includes 1) a man accused of attempted murder for shooting at a SWAT team, 2) a woman charged w/ 2nd-degree murder, and 3) a twice-convicted rapist who was charged in 2 other cases https://t.co/hebhUkMwF2 https://t.co/hLSlmuObQY— Siraj Hashmi (@SirajAHashmi) August 31, 2020
Lovely, letting violent criminals, many who aren’t even residents of Kenosha – and likely weren’t residents of Minneapolis, walk away scot free and not one single person on the Left has a problem with that. Not one single Democrat politician, Kamala and Joe included, will EVER say a word about this.
Then again, as CNN is showing this morning, the narrative that Jacob Blake is a stupendously awesome guy continues. The reality is, Jacob Blake was a rapist with a long criminal track record.
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a bail issue and a credibility problem. They’ve stayed silent for MONTHS as the riots and destruction grew worse. The fact that they are now scrambling to reset the record in hopes of gaining back momentum is telling. Their silence has been consent. Period.

Doesn’t everyone see the obvious next move by Biden and Harris?
“Oh, no, we thought everyone was just contributing to a fund to bail out innocent peaceful protesters who were wrongly arrested by the police. We had no idea that a few – a very few – actual criminals would slip through the cracks in this carefully-administered program and accidentally get out on bail. We’ll make sure that sort of thing will never happen again.”
To borrow the rioters phraseology: Democrat Politician silence= Leftist violence!
And since this is cash bail (not a bond), and never belonged to the accused, the accused can just skip out on his bail without any financial loss. And you know the Soros-funded DAs in these blue hellholes aren’t going to bother to hire a bounty hunter to get them back.
Don’t Biden and Harris and their ilk blame the riots on Trump and “right-wing white supremacists”? Why are Biden and Harris bailing out white supremacist Trump supporters? Why are they locking them up and throwing the book at them? (The way Harris did at so many black non-violent marijuana offenders?)
[…] Harris still has her tweet up asking for donations for the BLM rioters bail fund. […]
[…] were supposed to protect the innocent from criminals, FAILED the citizens of Waukesha. All because liberals have abandoned the bail system in favor of political […]
