That's a really lovely, selective pull of his point:

It's simple, good politics. Trump is yammering on about LAWLESS STATUEPULLERS DOING BIDEN'S BIDDING and Biden is more or less going "lol idgaf, whatever, fix COVID". Trump wants a culture war, so acknowledge the truly popular poo poo, laugh the other poo poo off, and move on to keeping your 10+ point lead.

If Biden supported the Defund the Police message, he'd lose. If Biden supports the police reform movement (he supports it enough), he wins. I bet you'll find a shitload of support for yanking down the Confederate monuments and limited support for yanking down Columbus monuments.

Edit: To cut short a potential Biden derail / the same conversation again, the last 365 days have been a long decade:

Smart politics would be saying he's open to debate on Columbus statues since the man was a monster, not saying the government should protect them. He also said all past president's statues as well which also includes some monsters

gently caress off with that poo poo. It's boring. It's loving middle school gossip of national level politics.

He's not wrong. the government has a legal requirement to protect and maintain public property. Statues are public property.

if you don't like a statue, then form a mob and tear it down illegally, or convince your local govt to remove it legally.

I personally endorse either way of removal. Columbus was a murderous shitbag.

But this twitter "X SAID Y" soundbite poo poo is older than the average age of the Senate, and just as loving stale.

The police were invented to protect capital. The wealthy just offloaded the costs of their private security to the tax payers.

The best part about this though is that it will likely end up leading to the end of private schools. The SC decision basically said that if you state-fund private schools, you can't block religious schools from the state funding just because they're religious.

Do you think that southern states are going to fund Islamic schools? I'd bet they'd find ANY way out of it. :laugh:

Yeah I'm aware of it, and yet again, it's being taken out of context by the Washington Examiner. Ford and Kissinger were trying to keep the US troops in Vietnam for as long as they could to continue assisting and advising the South despite the peace accords under the pretext of "Gotta get these refugees out! Just need more money and time!" Biden and the rest of the Dems at the time were basically calling their bluff.

"[I]f the arguments in the coming years are between spending freezes and spending cuts, then we've already won" - National Review 2011 on the ongoing debates over Simpson-Bowles aka the President's National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform

Not trying to stir things up but Biden's almost certainly going to continue the Clinton/Obama/Third Way playbook of 'fiscal responsibility'/deficit reduction and relying heavily on private industry vs government-run efforts to deal with critical issues, while only making cursory gestures towards raising taxes on the rich and big business. For your non-Evangelical Business Conservative you're really not losing out and can always use the time to drum up funding for the next round in 2022 and 2024.

the loving "read it yourself" link you obviously didn't read posted:

Biden: What concerns us is that a wee,k ago Habib told us we would be formulating a plan. A week has gone by and nothing has happene d. We should focus on getting them out. Getting the Vietnamese out and military
aid for the GVN are totally different.


Kissinger: The plan for American evacuation is in pretty good shape. But we had a report that if we pulled out and left them in the lurch, we may have to fight the South Vietnamese. It was that we were concerned with and that is why we waited to go to Thieu so we didnlt do it in the context of a bug out. The second problem is getting American citizens out in an
emergency. Third is the Vietnamese to whom we have an obligation. This
is infinitely more complicated and large-scale. It requires cooperation from the GVN and maybe the North Vietnamese.

Biden: I feel put upon in being presented an all or nothing number. I donlt want to have to vote to buy it all or not at all. I am not sure I can vote for an amount to put American troops in for one to six months to get the Vietnamese out. I will vote for any amount for getting the Americans out. I donlt want it mixed with getting the Vietnamese out.
