Republicans who refuse to support President Joe Biden’s gun-grabbing agenda are not on the side of police, the Commander-in-Chief reportedly said during a speech he gave on Monday.
The president’s comments — which were made virtually, given his recent coronavirus diagnosis — were made to an audience at the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, according to The Daily Wire.
“Being a cop today is a hell of a lot harder than it’s ever been,” Biden argued. “We expect everything of you. We expect you to be drug counselors to people overdosing at a scene; therapists to couples during a violent confrontation; social workers to kids who have been abandoned. Maybe worst of all, we send you out to do your job on the streets flooded with weapons of war.”
“You hear a lot of politicians say about how much they love you, how much they care about you, they’ll do anything for you,” he continued.
“In the state you’re in today [Florida], Gov. [Ron] DeSantis, Sen. [Marco] Rubio, Sen. Rick Scott all opposed banning assault weapons, and Senators Scott and Rubio voted against the bipartisan gun safety law that I signed, the first meaningful gun legislation in nearly thirty years, that you supported.”
The president was referring to the “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” which he signed last month, representing the most significant federal gun regulation since the 1994 assault weapons ban.
“To me, it’s simple. If you can’t support banning weapons of war on American streets, you’re not on the side of [the] police,” he casually stated.
Biden then went on to argue the Second Amendment is not absolute and the upcoming midterm elections will determine, “whether or not this nation bans assault weapons.”
The president claimed Republicans are bought off by the National Rifle Association (NRA), an organization that recently filed for bankruptcy, per CNBC.
“When it comes to assault weapons, too many politicians are bowing down to the NRA,” he proclaimed.
The president also emphasized his dedication to funding the police, despite members of his party — and many of his far left political allies — backing the “Defund the Police” movement. These include gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and several others.
Before he wrapped up, Biden couldn’t resist attacking former President Donald Trump on the topic of January 6th, stating that law enforcement was “speared, sprayed, stomped on, brutalized” and “dripping with blood, surrounded by carnage.”
“You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-cop,” he said. “You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-democracy. You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-America.”
While Biden may believe it’s okay to deprive individuals of their Constitutional rights, his accusation against Republicans about being anti-cop flies in the face of the past two years, when his own party attacked the police relentlessly as crime skyrocketed in cities across the country.
If anything, it’s the GOP who proudly and publicly back our men and women in blue. It’s Republicans who make special efforts on behalf of military members. And it’s the GOP who preach law and order, while radical liberal leaders continue to rely on chaos, anarchy, and lawlessness to distract the public — in an effort to hide how corrupt and inept they truly are.
