Biden repeats shocking lies about Trump in order to push Radical propaganda on public

Joe Biden and the Left do not care if the American people know the full story of things. All they seem to care about is getting people to vote for Biden.

But now, Biden has repeated shocking lies about Trump in an effort to push his Radical propaganda on the public.

President Joe Biden has once again reiterated a debunked narrative that former President Donald Trump ordered the tear-gassing of peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square to facilitate a photo-op with a Bible at St. John’s Church.

This claim, which has been consistently refuted, continues to be a talking point for Democrats seeking to criticize Trump’s actions during the height of the 2020 protests.

During a recent campaign event in Philadelphia, Biden questioned what Trump would have done if black Americans had stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

He used this hypothetical scenario to revisit the Lafayette Square incident, stating, “What do you think he would have done on January 6 if black Americans had stormed the…think about this. What do you think would have happened if black Americans had stormed the Capitol? I don’t think he’d be talking about pardons. This is the same guy who wanted to tear gas you as you peacefully protested George Floyd’s murder.”

Biden’s remarks come despite a June 2021 report from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Inspector General, which exonerated Trump from the accusation that he had used tear gas to clear peaceful protesters.

The report confirmed that the clearing of Lafayette Park was pre-planned to install anti-scale fencing and was not intended to facilitate Trump’s walk to the church.

The Inspector General’s report provided a detailed timeline and rationale for the actions taken by law enforcement on June 1, 2020. It stated:

“Protests began in and around Lafayette Park on May 29, 2020. On May 30, the USPP [U.S. Park Police] and U.S. Secret Service established a unified command to coordinate the law enforcement response to the protests. From May 30 to 31, at least 49 USPP officers were injured while policing the protests, and Federal and private property was vandalized.

On the morning of June 1, the Secret Service procured anti-scale fencing to establish a more secure perimeter around Lafayette Park that was to be delivered and installed that same day. The USPP, in coordination with the Secret Service, determined that it was necessary to clear protesters from the area in and around the park to enable the contractor’s employees to safely install the fence. The USPP planned to implement the operation as soon as the fencing materials and sufficient law enforcement officers arrived at the park. Six other law enforcement agencies assisted the USPP and the Secret Service in the operation to clear and secure areas near the park.

The operation began at 6:23 p.m. and was completed by 6:50 p.m. Shortly thereafter, at 7:01 p.m., President Trump walked from the White House through Lafayette Park to St. John’s Church. At 7:30 p.m., the contractor began assembling and installing the anti-scale fence and completed the work by approximately 12:30 a.m. on June 2.”

The report concluded, “We did not obtain evidence suggesting that the USPP cleared Lafayette Park so the President could visit St. John’s Church.”

Despite these findings, the claim that Trump ordered tear gas against peaceful protesters has persisted in media narratives and statements from prominent Democrats.

For instance, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, and several media outlets perpetuated the falsehood, framing the event as an example of Trump’s authoritarian tendencies.

These statements have not been retracted, even in light of the Inspector General’s findings.

The U.S. Park Police (USPP) clarified in a statement that smoke canisters and pepper balls were used to disperse the protesters, not tear gas.

The USPP emphasized that protesters were given multiple warnings to vacate the area and that their response was to escalate violence from the crowd, which included projectiles being thrown at officers.

Interestingly, the use of tear gas in the vicinity was attributed to the Metropolitan Police Department under Washington, D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser.

The Inspector General’s report mentioned that the D.C. police used tear gas, not the federal agencies involved in clearing the park.

Biden’s reiteration of this debunked claim appears to be a strategic move to galvanize his base by invoking the specter of Trump’s alleged misdeeds.

However, it raises questions about the integrity of the discourse surrounding these events.

The persistence of these falsehoods underscores a broader issue in political rhetoric where verified facts are often overshadowed by persistent narratives that serve partisan goals.

The Left will continue to prioritize turning voters away from Trump over the actual truth.
