'Biden Is Going To Kenosha, WI On Thurs. To Bring People Together; Trump Went To Kenosha To Divide'

'Trump went to Kenosha to divide; Biden is going to Kenosha to bring people together.' By Laura Clawson, Daily Kos, Sept. 2, 2020. Excerpts, Ed:

Former Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden are going to Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Thursday. The Democratic nominee will “hold a community meeting in Kenosha to bring together Americans to heal and address the challenges we face,” according to the campaign, followed by a “local stop.”

On Tuesday, Donald Trump managed to visit Kenosha and dwell on the damage from unrest following the police shooting of Jacob Blake without mentioning Blake, who is paralyzed after being shot seven times in the back. Biden, on the other hand, has already spoken with members of Blake’s family.

This will be Biden’s first trip to Wisconsin as the presidential nominee, after plans for the Democratic National Convention to be held in Milwaukee had to be scrapped due to coronavirus. Biden has released an ad using parts of his Monday speech, which will be airing in Wisconsin and eight other states.

I want to make it absolutely clear Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. It’s lawlessness, plain and simple, and those who do it should be prosecuted. Fires are burning and we have a president who fans the flames. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it. But his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows how weak he is. Violence will not bring change. It’ll only bring destruction. It’s wrong in every way. If I were president, my language would be less divisive..“Be not afraid.”...
