Biden Just Had a Stunning 'Very Fine People on Both Sides' Moment

Biden Just Had a Stunning 'Very Fine People on Both Sides' Moment

Americans are urged to reject the mainstream media just as Jesus condemned the worst of the Pharisees, for similar reasons. A contemporary cadre of vipers, equipped with press credentials, thrives on self-righteous hypocrisy while serving nefarious interests.

During a press interaction on Monday, President Joe Biden denounced what he perceived as both sides in the anti-Semitic protests occurring at Columbia University in New York. This act showcased the exact tone-deafness and moral bankruptcy that establishment reporters inaccurately attributed to former President Donald Trump during the "fine people" debacle following the 2017 Charlottesville protests in Virginia.

In a brief exchange with reporters at an event in Prince William Forest Park in Triangle, Virginia, Biden managed to display the negative aspects of his character and presidency, including a sanctimonious moral relativism amplified by cognitive decline.

“Do you condemn the anti-Semitic protests on college campuses?” a female reporter yelled.

“I condemn the anti-Semitic protests. That’s why I’ve set up a program to deal with that,” the president replied.

A program? Seriously? Would anyone but a career-long establishment politician respond to a moral question by citing a “program” he allegedly created?

Then came the “both sides” remark.

“I also condemn those who don’t understand what’s going on with the Palestinians. And their, how they’re being — ” Biden said, his words growing fainter to the ear and less intelligible just as the same reporter interrupted him with a follow-up question that probably saved him from another gaffe.

“Should the Columbia University president resign?” the reporter asked.

Biden apparently misheard and therefore bungled even that simple question.

“I didn’t know that. I’ll have to find out more about that,” he replied.

To put it mildly, the situation on intellectually and morally decayed Ivy League campuses did not warrant a condemnation of “both sides.”

On Sunday, for instance, a prominent rabbi warned that pro-Palestinian protests at Columbia University had devolved into a scene of such intense anti-Semitic hatred that Jewish students should return home for their safety.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft responded by withdrawing financial support for the university, whose officials, according to one Jewish professor, have allowed or even encouraged conditions reminiscent of 1938.

No word on whether Biden condemned both Kristallnacht and those who did not understand the unfairness of the Versailles Treaty.

In any event, the president’s “both sides” moment reminded X users of the establishment media’s “fine people” hoax.

Recall that in 2017 a group of protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, peacefully opposed the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue.

Meanwhile, a detestable Unite the Right Rally attracted extremist miscreants, including neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

At a news conference, then-President Trump drew a clear distinction between the peaceful protesters and the extremist miscreants.

“You had some very bad people in that group,” he said of the extremists. “But you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.”

Trump then made it clear that he meant to defend people who sought to protect statues of American icons, including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

He did not defend racists.

“I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists because they should be condemned totally,” Trump said. “But you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, OK? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”

Moments later, as if to prove the point, a female reporter posed an astonishing question.

“I’m sorry. I just didn’t understand what you were saying. Are you saying the press has treated white nationalists unfairly?” she asked right after Trump twice had specifically excluded white nationalists from the group of “fine people” he defended against press mistreatment.

“No. There were people in that rally — and I looked the night before — if you look, they were people protesting very quietly the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee,” he said before again denouncing neo-Nazis and white nationalists as “rough, bad people.”

For those in need of a reminder, here was Trump in his own words:

He could not have said it more clearly. Trump condemned neo-Nazis and white nationalists while defending peaceful protesters who sought to protect the Lee statue.

But the establishment media spent years distorting his words and pushing the hoax. Congress held hearings on white nationalism. Biden even piously cited those Charlottesville comments as the inspiration for his own presidential campaign.

It was all sanctimonious theater, every word of it rooted in lies.

And now that Biden has had his own authentic “both sides” moment, most of the establishment media has not made a peep.

Instead, the vipers have once again shown their pharisaical true colors.
