It’s an irony that Joe has to speak about the police during their week. As a result, he has to speak out of both sides of his mouth. Democrats despise police by both word and deed while at the same time insisting on their own armed security. At first he praised police. A paragraph later he starts talking about a “deep sense of distrust” the police might have among minorities. This is probably coming from BLM because even Obama praised police.
Joe is an empty suit
Just put up there to be a figurehead. He says what his handlers tell him to say. The contrast between Joe Biden and President Trump is like night and day.
Biden said, “Every morning, our Nation’s law enforcement officers pin on a badge and go to work, not knowing what the day will bring, and hoping to come home safely. As we recognize Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week, we honor those who lost their lives in the line of duty, and thank them on behalf of this grateful Nation for their service.”
We’ve gone from “Back the Blue” to “Bash the Blue” in one administration. I’m still DISGUSTED that Biden would use his official Police Week statement to suggest that every Cop is a racist. Democrat hatred for our police is outright REPULSIVE.

To help law enforcement “and work to ensure they have the resources and research tools they need to do their jobs successfully and the funding necessary to enhance officer safety and wellness,” but then he turned around and started saying how harmful police are.
He began, “This year, we also recognize that in many of our communities, especially Black and brown communities, there is a deep sense of distrust towards law enforcement; a distrust that has been exacerbated by the recent deaths of several Black and brown people at the hands of law enforcement.”
“These deaths have resulted in a profound fear, trauma, pain, and exhaustion for many Black and brown Americans, and the resulting breakdown in trust between law enforcement and the communities they have sworn to protect and serve ultimately makes officers’ jobs harder and more dangerous as well. In order to rebuild that trust, our State, local, and Federal Government and law enforcement agencies must protect constitutional rights, ensure accountability for misconduct, and embrace policing that reflects community values and ensures community safety. These approaches benefit those who wear the badge and those who count on their protection.”
The Biden administration barely acknowledged Police Week. He invited illegal immigrants that were protected by DACA instead of police related events.
Joe Biden’s inadequacy
Spurred others to fill in. David Johnson, president of the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, filled the void, “This week we pause to pay respect to our law enforcement officers, particularly those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect their communities. It is beyond disappointing to see the president of the United States continue to perpetuate false and hurtful myths about police, rather than uniting as he claimed he would during the campaign. ”
Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX, pulled no punches. He tweeted, “I’m still DISGUSTED that Biden would use his official Police Week statement to suggest that every Cop is a racist. Democrat hatred for our police is outright REPULSIVE.”
