Pro-Palestine protesters chant 'Genocide Joe' at every Biden campaign event - report [View all]

n the past several weeks, President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign events have been met with relentless pro-Palestine protesters, reported Politico on Monday.

At a United Auto Workers event, demonstrators interrupted the President’s speech to call for a ceasefire. The day earlier, while at an event in Virginia to campaign for abortion rights and to mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, protesters interrupted Biden’s speech, chanting “Genocide Joe” and “ceasefire now or no vote.” In defense of the president, Biden supporters chanted, “Four more years.”

According to the report by Politico, pro-Palestine protesters show up at every single campaign event, regardless of the topic. Event organizers have attempted to increase the selectivity of event attendees.


Every Biden event, and none at Trump events.

Things that make you go hmmm...
