Karine Jean-Pierre’s press briefings are more of a comedy routine than anything else.
The White House Press Secretary has become known solely for her skill to avoid and deflect any actual questions she faces.
That’s especially true over the course of the last 3 years of the Biden administration’s attempts to convince the American people that one of the biggest threats our nation faces is so-called domestic extremists.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, their definition of just who is an extremist is especially scary and divisive.
Because what Joe Biden means by “domestic extremist” is anyone who voted for Donald Trump, any gun owners, homeschoolers, or Christians.
And he uses those ridiculous definitions to weaponize the federal government against Trump and his supporters.
It is all part of the Democrat campaign plan to make sure they win the 2024 elections.
Of course, any thinking person knows the idea that Trump supporters are any kind of threat to the nation is simply a huge lie.
Joe Biden’s continual lies about Trump and his supporters look even more ridiculous in the aftermath of the October 7 Hamas terrorist attack in Israel.
In response to the Hamas attack Left-wing mobs have sprung up across the U.S. on college campuses and in major cities in support of Hamas and the extermination of Jews.
In a chat group at Cornell University, one Hamas supporter declared it was time to slit the throats of Jews.
A pro-Hamas mob at Cooper Union College in New York trapped Jewish students in the library and forced them to hide in an attic to avoid the violent thugs.
And in protest after protest, pro-Hamas socialist criminals are calling for the complete destruction of Israel.
Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy recently asked Jean-Pierre if Joe Biden believed these anti-Semitic mobs were domestic extremists.
“Does President Biden think the anti-Israel protesters in this country are extremists?” Doocy stated.
Not surprisingly, Jean-Pierre completely ducked the question.
“What I can say, is we’ve been very clear on this. When it comes to antisemitism, there is no place,” Jean-Pierre replied. “We have to make sure that we speak against it very loud and be very clear about that. Remember, when the president decided to run for president, is what he saw in Charlottesville in 2017. He saw neo-Nazis marching down the streets of Charlottesville with vile antisemitic . . . just hatred, and he was very clear then, and he’s very clear now. He’s taken actions against this over the past two years, and he’s continued to be clear: There is no place, no place for this type of vile and this kind of rhetoric.”
Doocy didn’t let her off the hook and followed up by asking why Joe Biden had no problem attacking Trump supporters as domestic extremists but wouldn’t use similar language for anti-Semitic mobs on college campuses.
“We hear you guys, though, talk about extremists all the time, and it’s usually about MAGA extremists. So what about these protesters who are making Jewish students feel unsafe on college campuses? Are they extremists?” Doocy shot back.
Jean-Pierre again declined to call Hamas supporters domestic extremists.
“I’ve been very clear. We are calling out any form of hate, any form of hate,” Jean-Pierre responded. “It is not acceptable, it should not be acceptable here and we are gonna continue to call that out.”
Jean-Pierre, Joe Biden, and the Democrats won’t call out Hamas supporters for one simple reason – they know these violent protesters are their voting base.
And the most recent Gallup poll found Joe Biden’s approval rating sinking 11 points just among Democrats.
That’s unheard of for a sitting President.
This survey was taken in the wake of the Hamas terrorist attack and the Democrat base believed Biden sided too strongly with Israel.
Biden’s facing a difficult re-election campaign next year and Democrats can’t afford any part of their coalition staying home.
So Biden and the Democrats can’t antagonize the pro-Hamas wing of the Democrat Party because even the slightest drop in Democrat turnout next year could hand Donald Trump the White House.
And that’s why KJP refused to answer the question.
