Biden’s Harmful Reaction To The Rittenhouse Verdict

He would be upset that justice was served. Biden, or whoever speaks for Biden at the White House, released a statement after Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty.  The statement had some good points about how the nation has to come together and how we must all abide by the decisions made by our courts, but the first line ruined any of that when he said he was angry and concerned about the verdict.

Biden’s statement after the verdict:

“While the verdict in Kenosha will leave many Americans feeling angry and concerned, myself included, we must acknowledge that the jury has spoken. I ran on a promise to bring Americans together, because I believe that what unites us is far greater than what divides us.  I know that we’re not going to heal our country’s wounds overnight, but I remain steadfast in my commitment to do everything in my power to ensure that every American is treated equally, with fairness and dignity, under the law.

I urge everyone to express their views peacefully, consistent with the rule of law.  Violence and destruction of property have no place in our democracy.  The White House and Federal authorities have been in contact with Governor Evers’s office to prepare for any outcome in this case, and I have spoken with the Governor this afternoon and offered support and any assistance needed to ensure public safety.”

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg also commented about the verdict:

“Look, there’s a lot of pain in this country, and that pain and that frustration was aroused by the entire case, including the verdict,” Buttigieg said. “And for a lot of us, there’s just a lot to be upset about, a lot to be concerned about, but we’ll move forward as a country.

“The president continues to believe and this administration continues to believe in America and we’ve got to continue working to bring Americans together,” he said.”

So really it is the whole administration that is in the wrong here. Yes, they are entitled to their freedom of speech. But they are by no means bringing any unity to the country with their statements. In fact, they are instead raising doubts among Dems about how just the courts are, instead of reassuring everyone that justice was served.
