During the first presidential debate on Tuesday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden repeated FBI Director Christopher Wray’s claim that “Antifa’s an idea, not an organization.”
The Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) proved just how absurd Biden’s statement was, by releasing an ad showcasing the violent and deadly riots across America just this summer.
The ad only lasts for 30 seconds, but it delivers a powerful message that can’t be ignored — not even by the Democrats.
“If Antifa is only an idea then who is burning down our cities, assaulting our law enforcement officers, and causing the violence we’ve seen over the last four months?” RAGA Executive Director Adam Piper asked in a statement.
“Biden’s remarks don’t come as a surprise to anybody who has paid attention to the Democrats’ recent rhetoric. As lives and livelihoods are being destroyed by lawless liberal mobs across the country, Democrat attorneys general are either encouraging the violence or downplaying its existence,” Piper said. “Voters this November must hold Democrats up and down the ballot accountable for their recklessness and incitement of this violence.”
The ad starts with the incriminating debate footage of Biden.
“I’ll tell you what, somebody’s got to do something about Antifa and the Left,” President Donald Trump begins.
Biden responds, “Antifa’s an idea, not an organization.”
“Oh? You gotta be kidding me!” Trump reacts.
The ad then shows the destruction of the riots, as the rioters burn down buildings and attack police officers. Text appears on the screen, asking, “Can an idea burn down buildings? Can an idea commit violence?”
As the rioters shout, “Death to America!” they burn down the American flag. “An idea didn’t create this anarchy,” says the text. “An organization did.”
“Why won’t Joe Biden condemn violent left-wing organizations?”
The ad then ends with Biden declaring, “I am the Democratic party right now,”
After such a powerful ad, why would anyone still vote for Joe Biden?
I’ll tell you who: Antifa and the liberals, who even now are probably thanking Joe Biden for watching their back.
