While small businesses are going out of business and unemployment has hit its highest level since the Great Depression, former Vice President Joe Biden has decided who his campaign’s going to help financially: accused rioters and looters.
Just because you smashed a window, stole a TV, or torched a police car doesn’t mean you’re a bad guy, as far as Biden’s campaign is concerned.
Biden’s staffers have praised the unrest — and put their money where their mouth is.

At least 13 campaign workers on Biden’s presidential team publicly announced they’ve made donations to pay the looters’ bail.
Biden’s handpicked aides and paid staffers—not lowly volunteers—donated money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a group that funds rioters bail and helps get them out of jail.
Joe Biden personally believes that even asking criminals to post bail before letting them go is like a “modern-day debtor’s prison,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Reuters.
Bates wouldn’t say whether the Biden 2020 donations to the rioters bail fund was coordinated.
Backed by Biden and Hollywood liberals like Christy Teigen and Justin Timberlake, the Minnesota Freedom Fund raised $20 million in four days—250 times as much money as it raised all of last year, according to board member Steve Boland.
The leftist fund pulled in so many donations that it started turned would-be contributors away and asking people to donate to George Floyd’s family instead.
MFF will need that money if it intends to bail out everyone arrested during the seven day long, revolutionary uprising.
There were 481 people arrested in Minneapolis over the weekend alone as looters trashed businesses, broke windows, and set police cars on fire.
Outside Minnesota, arrests multiplied. Chicago took 700 people into custody.
Even Portland, Oregon—where city leaders vacated the police station and let rioters set it on fire—police managed to arrest 97 people as the flames lit up the night sky.
“We’re dying a slow death of political correctness,” said Brandon Tatum, a former police officer and a black American.
But the Democratic presidential nominee’s employees believe that paying the looters’ bail, and putting rioters back on the streets, is the least they can do.

Colleen May, who says she’s a Biden campaign organizer in Wisconsin, virtue-signaled that she made a $50 donation to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.
“It is up to everyone to fight injustice,” she tweeted, before she protected her Twitter account.
President Donald Trump said in a speech at Cape Canaveral that “what we are now seeing on the streets of our cities has nothing to do with justice or with peace. The memory of George Floyd is being dishonored by rioters, looters, and anarchists.”
Trump’s campaign accused Biden’s aides of aiding and abetting illegal activity.
.@JoeBiden’s staff is donating to a fund that pays bail for people rioting in Minneapolis.
This is CONDONING & FINANCIALLY SUPPORTING mayhem that’s destroying businesses & ruining people’s life work.

State Democratic leaders have seen their own families back the looting, as well.
It seems the entire Democratic Party has thrown its support behind the Antifa-inspired violence.
Minnesota State Attorney General Keith Ellison served as co-chair of the Democratic National Committee with DNC leader Tom Perez.
In January 2018, he tweeted out a picture of himself holding the book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook and wrote: “I just found the book that strikes fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.”
“Some Democrats have openly embraced what is happening,” said Tucker Carlson during an epic monologue about the violence on Monday night. “Really, they don’t have much of a choice. These are their voters cleaning out the Rolex store.”
“These riots are effectively the largest Joe Biden for President rally on record,” Carlson said.
He said Biden’s campaign is paying their fines “in gratitude for that.”
There’s little doubt why the Biden campaign backed the riots: Staffers believe that increasing the black turnout in November will keep the state in the Democratic column.
Hillary Clinton won the state by the skin of her teeth in 2016 with just 1.5 percent. Before the coronavirus lockdowns, President Trump focused his massive campaign rallies on the state to see if he can win the Democratic stronghold, just like he became the first Republican to win Wisconsin since 1988.
In November, Joe Biden doesn’t want to lose the one state Walter Mondale won.
The two campaigns have made their views of the riots clear: President Trump will shut them down. President Biden would pay the bail to put them back on the street.
