Pro-Palestinian Demonstrators Mob White House | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Pro-Palestinian protesters swarmed the White House gates on Saturday evening, demanding a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip while chastising President Joe Biden for siding with Israel in its war against Hamas.

    Hundreds if not thousands of people, many of whom carried signs or the Palestinian flag, amassed outside the northern fence. They chanted anti-Biden slogans such as "Genocide Joe" and "F*** Joe Biden."

    Biden, who was in Delaware when the protesters came knocking, has reaffirmed U.S. support for Israel in the wake of Hamas' October 7 terrorist attacks on Israeli soil that killed an estimated 1,400-plus people, including 33 Americans.

    As Israeli forces now fight in the Gaza Strip to root out Hamas officials who openly admit they hide among civilians, leftist Democrats railed at Biden. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) accused Biden of backing genocide and delivered an election ultimatum. "Biden, support a ceasefire now or don't count on us in 2024," read the text card in one of her videos.

    The unrest in the nation's capital this weekend was reminiscent of the behavior seen after the death of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. Getting as close as they could to the White House grounds, demonstrators grabbed onto and shook the security fence as law enforcement stood guard on the other side. One man even partially scaled the fence and waved a Palestinian flag as the crowd sang for a "free Palestine."

    Instances of vandalism were spotted throughout the area. Red hands, likely made out of paint but made to look like blood, defaced one of the White House entrances. Video appeared to show Secret Service agents within the White House perimeter tear down a long banner attached to the fence from the outside which would have obstructed their view of the situation. People also climbed onto statues in nearby Lafayette Park and covered the historical statues with their signs and flags.

    Demonstrations in favor of the Palestinians took place throughout the day in Washington, D.C., including a rally that featured rapper Macklemore, who repeated the "genocide" line.

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

A majority of Americans still believe in OUR 1st Amendment guaranteed Freedom of Speech; however, at what bold point does the constitutional right to Free Speech becomes unabashed anti-Semitic Hate Speech, and while it should possibly be tolerated on our college campuses, and on the streets of mostly Sanctuary Cities, these events should be rightfully observed and scrupulously monitored ... or, not? What is your true opinion of when too much of enough is just too much, or not?
  The answer to Free Speech I don't agree with is more, and incredibly robust Free Speech.
  There is a point when Free Speech becomes counter productive to sustaining a peaceful society.
  Free Speech should only be tolerated if it represents the status quo of the highly educated orthodoxy.

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"

In stripping away the heavy varnish of fakery by the heavy handed Corrupt Corporate Media; in taking a true view of what is real, right now with clear open eyes: How do you see this 46th President of these States United; what is your visceral first impression of Joe Biden after nearly 3 years on the job?
  A good man, wise and kind
  The Socialist President
  A president in praise of his son
  The Non Patriot President
  A successful president
  The Idiot President
  A knowledgeable president
  A corrupt president
  A perfect leader of the Democratic Socialist party
