    “You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. … I saw the same pictures as you did. You had people in that group that were there to protest the taking down of, to them, a very, very important statue and the renaming of a park from Robert E. Lee to another name. … So you know what, it’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture. And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the White nationalists, because they should be condemned totally — but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and White nationalists. Okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people. But you also had troublemakers, and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats. You had a lot of bad people in the other group.”

Please show me where Biden specifically condemns Antifa alone without cheapening it by lumping it in with “all violence”.

    Oh boy. The left keeps demanding more???
    He was asked by Chris Wallace (a Fox News personality), during a prime time presidential debates, to denounce white supremacists. He wouldn’t. Joe Biden was asked the SAME thing. He would. I can honestly say that if I was running for president of the United States, you could ask me to denounce white supremacy a million times and I would happily do so every single time. That full quote you cited in prior post is well known. I’ve seen it many times. It is text book equivocation. If he didn’t equivocate, he wouldn’t have to keep clarifying. You of all people should know that. You have spent countless hours exposing local politicians for the frauds that they are. Yet you support the biggest fraud in American history. It makes no sense to me. Biden has unequivocally denounced racism and violence in ALL its forms. Somehow you think that Antifa gets ‘cheapened’ by lumping it in with all violence? I honestly don’t know what that even means. Violence is violence.
    I’ll get you the Biden condemning Antifa as well as all violence and property damage. Why that needs to be seen in order for you to admit that not condemning white supremacy is objectively bad, I’ll never know.

    This is from a Sept 8th interview and it is available on Fox News live. Now I’m not a language expert but that looks like an unequivocal statement to me.
    So, now can we all accept what we already know to be true? Anyone who can’t bring themselves to publicly condemn white supremacy, no matter how many times they’re asked, is a bad person.

    I can honestly say that if Trump said in response to ‘do you condemn white supremacy?’, ‘yes, I do, all form of racism no matter who’. That would have been great. But he didn’t.
    I’m am signing off now. I can see that your devotion to this ‘man’ knows no bounds. He, every day, engages in activities you would never tolerate in any other politician. You could literally start a separate blog that addresses only the Trump crimes and never run out of material.

    #20. I actually agree. I think neither man is a racist. Trump just has racist thoughts and says racist things.
    #21 Good lord, where to begin. Obama came into power during the worst recession in generations. Plural. The economy has been improving steadily and the unemployment has been decreasing since 2009. Those are factual numbers that you can look up. Here’s another factual number that you can look up: Trump produced 6.9 million jobs in his first 36 months in office. Those are pre CoVID numbers so a great deal of those jobs have been erased since then but we won’t factor those losses in. Impressive. In Obama’s last three years in office he created 8.1 million jobs. More impressive.
    I’m squarely in the middle class. My taxes under Obama were actually less than with Trump. Two reasons: the first is that I don’t make enough money to benefit from the Trump tax reform. Not even close. The second is the fact that the Trump tax reform he reduced the amount of property tax we can deduct. So yea, I pay more under Trump. Which bothers me more now that I know (I always knew) that HE doesn’t pay his taxes. Now his fans may say ‘well that’s because he’s smart’. I disagree. I think it’s because he’s greedy. That money that he’s so brilliantly not paying goes to veterans, cops, firefighters, military personnel, teachers, etc etc.
    There is no rational defense of Donald Trump. He is a pig, a liar, philanderer, misogynist, crook, narcissist, coward, bad businessman (by any measure), dim, ill informed, unfit, draft dodger, buffoon, and hypocritical. If he had a (d) next to his name you would all be horrified by this man. It’s time to wake up and join the growing number of Republicans (especially those from his own staff!) that have had it with this president and his desire to destroy this great country in order to serve his own selfish needs.

    #23 Yes, he is incompetent. Thank the lord. His true desire is to enrich himself and his family. If that means destroying the fabric of our democracy, so be it. His entire life has been about enriching himself at all costs. His business career is littered with men and women who lost their business because they made they mistake of trusting him. Tradesmen, florists, furniture dealers, etc etc. Freehold music used to occupy a large space on Rt 9. Trump ‘bought’ $750,000 worth of grand pianos from then to adorn the Trump Taj Mahal. And, in true Trump form, he filed for bankruptcy protection. Freehold music received about $70,000 of the $750,000 owed to them. They are now in a tiny space in a dilapidated strip mall. They nearly went out of business. The hundreds of other American contractors and suppliers who made the colossal mistake of doing business with Mr Art Of The Deal, weren’t so lucky.
    That is just one of his bankruptcies. As you know, he’s had several. So compound all those hard working American entrepreneurs who either lost money or their entire business because of the guy that touts himself as a businessman. It’s a joke. He is treating this country the same way. During the last years of the Obama presidency, the national debt was starting be paid down every quarter. Trump ended all that. Before COVID our national debt was breaking records. The Conservative party was silent. Now it’s a catastrophe. And yet there are smart people who actually think Trump is on the right track.
    And now the stable genius has contracted COVID. It’s almost the perfect cherry on top of the worlds most hypocritical sundae.

    #30. Hahaha. ‘Fake news’ the Trump supporter’s version of the bratty 4 year old who puts his fingers in his ears and yells ‘lalalalalalala’ rather than hear uncomfortable truths. It’s classic.
    I was explaining something I saw with my eyes. Wallace asked both candidates to disavow white supremacy. Trump wouldn’t. You can watch it yourself if you like. Now the part about being a black man and watching the debate with your children; that’s called a hypothetical situation. You’ve heard that word hypothetical, yes? So, as you are probably aware, it is an imaginary situation that is often used as a device to illicit empathy. It is used for people who have a difficult time feeling empathy towards others because it helps simplify things. I’m assuming you know what the word empathy means.
    In the hypothetical situation I used, I was trying to get Trump supports to try and imagine what it must have been like to watch that and be a black person. Let’s try again.
    You are a black father and you have three children. There is an important Presidential debate on TV and you feel it’s important enough to watch with your children. At one point, the moderator asks both candidates to condemn white supremacy. It’s not a far fetched question after all. The directors of the FBI and HLS both recently testified to congress that white supremacist groups are the biggest domestic terrorism threat we currently face (you can watch both testimonies with your eyes so you don’t use your fake news excuse). So as a black man sitting with your black family watching two men vie for the most important job in the country, you probably start to pay attention. Then, the man who actually holds that job refuses to condemn white supremacy. He won’t do it. Instead he tells a known far right, neo-fascist, all male, with ties to, you guessed it, white supremacy extremist group to ‘stand back and stand by’.
    Now here you are, a black father of black children, and your president not only refused to do the easiest thing in the world to do, he also told a dangerous, violent group to stand by.
    Full disclosure, Trump did finally disavow white supremacy two days later after some rather serious pressure from his own party but the damage was done.
    I think it’s fair to say that you would be upset and scared. And it would be a difficult job to look your children in the eye and tell them that everything will be ok. Hopefully that hypothetical scenario helps you understand, and employ, empathy.
    In conclusion- fake news is information, delivered as ‘news’ that is not factual. Think tweets from Trump or things that come out of his mouth.
    I hope this lesson has helped.
    I also hope for a speedy recovery for the man who is currently in a fake hospital after being afflicted with a fake virus.

    #34 I’ll put aside your rambling for a moment and try to get to what I think your point is. First- who said anything about not being able to support kids? I said as a matter of FACT that I paid more in taxes under Trump than I did under Obama.
    Second- The Black father in my HYPOTHETICAL (please look up the word)situation was upset and scared because the president of the united states refused to disavow white supremacists. I’m sure even your mind can grasp how that might be troubling.
    Lastly, Trump hasn’t done a thing for black people. The black unemployment rate has been falling since 2011. That’s six years before Trump took office. It has only continued to fall. The rate of decrease has not improved under Trump, it has just kept pace (these are numbers that you can research). So Trump bragging about that is like someone driving over a bridge and then taking credit for building it. You would never allow a different politician to do that. Never.
    The COVID pandemic has disproportionately affected black people more than white people. And considering that we are the worlds wealthiest nation that has the unimaginable distinction of leading the world in deaths per capita; I’d say, using his favorite word, this president has been a disaster.
    #37 I’m not a ‘liberal’. I’m a centrist who pays attention. And I’m not kicking rocks, I’m using facts. Trump is a huckster, always has been. I recommend you check out retired four start general Chuck Boyd. General Boyd is a lifelong republican and Vietnam veteran who has joined the staggering number of former military personnel who see the cowardly, draft dodging Trump as a threat to our democracy. Please read about him, maybe then you’ll come out of the star crossed fog that blinds you to the damage this clown (that’s actually unfair to clowns) has done to our nation.

    We do not need more “Yes” people on the Council, and the only candidate running right now that is NOT a “Yes” person is Jerry Buccafusco…. We have had “Yes” people before, and Belmar cannot afford to make the same mistake again.

    My wife and I moved to Belmar permanently in January 2011, and have attended Belmar Council meetings on a regular basis….if all of Common Sense For Belmar readers attended the Council meetings you would all be voting for Jerry Buccafusco for Council. Jerry has consistently examined financial and legal issues that arise frequently and questioned the Belmar Council on its reasoning. While I appreciate the time and effort that Tom Brennan has put forth, it is time for a change. Jerry will let the citizens of Belmar know what is going on and be a voice for the betterment of Belmar. It should not matter if you are a Democrat or a Republican, we need to vote for someone who can make a difference, and that person is Jerry.

    FYI, I am a registered Democrat but always vote for the person I feel will do the best job regardless of party affiliation (I voted for Walsifer for Mayor, and McCracken for Council, and previously voted for Doherty and Brennan)….please do the same and just vote for Jerry….this is our chance to help make a difference. But your vote is needed, or this will not happen…just vote for Jerry… please.

    And if you wonder how can one Independent like Jerry can possibly make a difference, this is how: Jerry will inform Belmar residents with communications about what is actually happening in our town….we have the communications resources readily available, including readers of Common Sense For Belmar, Facebook groups such as Belmar Locals, Belmar Locals Only, and Belmar/Lake Como/West Belmar Residents. Because of this, all residents will know what is going on in Belmar, what is good, and what could be improved. Then, we can vote accordingly to continue to improve Belmar, because what we all need is the facts…..

    Republicans and Democrats…put aside party and vote for the person who will make a difference…just vote for Jerry!

    Thank you all and stay safe!
