Some far-left liberals have defended the violent riots that have broken out from New York to Los Angeles—and even all around the world—in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
But there’s one politician who won’t stand for that nonsense. He says “it doesn’t matter” if the criminals who burn down businesses, smash-and-grab at local stores, and set fire to historic churches are “victims of society.”
They’re “predators” who should all be locked up—“taken out of society”—because they’re “beyond the pale,” who are “without any conscience.”
His name is Joe Biden.
Before he became vice president for eight years or won the Democratic presidential nomination, Biden was the most powerful senator in the country when it came to getting crime legislation passed.
He wrote the 1994 crime bill that supercharged black imprisonments coast to coast.
And he gave a tough-on-crime tour de force on the floor of the Senate, where he discussed the 1992 L.A. Riots that followed the Rodney King trial.
It’s as tough as anything he’s criticizing President Donald Trump for saying today.

The Horn News has the video, and it’s Joe Biden’s worst nightmare.
C-SPAN’s cameras were rolling on November 18, 1993, when Biden pitched his bill for the Democrat-controlled Senate to pass.
Biden needed to give the American people a reason to crack down on crime—and he was ready.
His go-to prop was the angry mob behind the previous year’s L.A. Riots, which did hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage and left an innocent man, Reginald Denny, permanently disabled.
The people who demonstrated “are beyond the pale, many of those people—beyond the pale,” Biden said, repeating himself even then.
No matter how poor they were or how hard they had it, they didn’t get any sympathy from Biden.

“We must take back the streets,” he said.
“It doesn’t matter whether or not the person that is accosting your son or daughter—or my son or daughter, my wife, your husband, my mother, your parents—it doesn’t matter whether or not they were deprived as a youth,” he said, winding up.
“It doesn’t matter whether or not they had no background that enabled them to become socialized into the fabric of society,” he continued.
“It doesn’t matter whether or not they’re the victims of society,” he went on.
Biden said he didn’t share any sociological insights about systematic racism as a cause of looting and rioting. He said he didn’t care.
“I don’t care why someone is a malefactor in society. I don’t care why someone is anti-social,” the then four-term U.S. senator said. “I don’t care why they’ve become a sociopath.”
The only thing that matters to decent people “is they’re about to knock my mother on the head with a lead pipe, shoot my sister, beat up my wife, take on my sons.”
Biden even slammed the cell door shut on liberals who wanted to let crooks out of the penitentiary if they took rehabilitation and training.
“You cannot make rehabilitation a condition for release,” he said—these “predators” have to stay in jail.
“We have no choice but to take them out of society,” he concluded.
Biden doesn’t want the video footage getting out for a lot of reasons.
First, the bill is one of the least popular pieces of legislation with the African-American voters that he’s counting on to put him in the White House this fall.

Second, it shows him contradicting the soft-on-crime rhetoric that his handlers put on his teleprompters and feed into his earpiece this campaign today.
“Joe Biden now stands with the far-left in disparaging law enforcement officers,” the Republican National Committee has said. “This is just another example of how the 2020 version of Joe Biden is unrecognizable from his past self.”
And third, the 27-year-old video shows how far Joe Biden has deteriorated.
Compare this passionate, fiery, off-the-cuff speech to any “speech” he’s stumbled through in the last five years.
This video proves that 77-year-old Joe Biden is just a shadow of himself today and doesn’t have the substance to be president.
