Americans can’t understand why Joe Biden named Karine Jean-Pierre as his press secretary.
Jean-Pierre is bad at every aspect of the job.
And Karine Jean-Pierre failed to do one thing that will have you shaking your head in disgust.
Democrats continue to stumble over confronting the antisemitism in their own ranks.
The energy on the left is with young voters on college campuses and major cities who support Hamas and chant for genocide against the Jewish people by shouting “from the river to the sea.”
One of the ugliest scenes that went viral on social media were videos from campuses and city streets of Biden supporters tearing down the posters of the hostages Hamas captured during the October 7 terrorist attack in Israel.
There are no two ways about it.
Tearing down the posters of innocent Jews who Hamas took hostage is an attempt to erase the barbaric atrocities committed by the jihadists against innocent Israelis.
NBC’s Peter Alexander tossed what should have been a softball question to Jean-Pierre asking her to condemn the outbreak of Hamas supporters tearing down posters of Israeli hostages.
“A lot of videos of individuals who have been tearing down signs, many of these taking place in New York City, of Israelis presently being held hostage in Gaza. There have been some tense confrontations that have taken place there. Is the White House’s view that these actions should be condemned, the pulling of the pulling down of them, or that that’s a form of peaceful protest?” Alexander wondered.
Jean-Pierre passed out of fear that speaking critically about Hamas supporters trying to whitewash acts of terror would set off a rebellion on the left.
“Look, I haven’t, I’ve sort of kind of seen the reporting here and there. I think it was from last week,” Jean-Pierre responded.
Alexander couldn’t believe what he was hearing and pointed to the videos going viral on social media exposing this disgraceful behavior.
“There’s been like 30 million videos that have got around,” Alexander asked in response.
Jean-Pierre then refused to denounce the anti-Semites yanking down hostage posters for a second time.
“No, I know. I hear you,” Jean-Pierre stated. “I’m just not going to. We’re not going to. I’m not going.”
“Is that peaceful protest to pull that down?” an exasperated Alexander asked.
Try number three went no better for Jean-Pierre than attempts one and two.
“I’m just not going to go into specifics on that particular thing. What I can say there are real but violent protests and threats that are happening right now. And senior administration officials are aware of these reports which are deeply concerning. And that is something that we’re focused on,” Jean-Pierre responded.
Jean-Pierre turned in a gob-smacking response where she essentially admitted she was so afraid of the pro-Hamas blowback from the base of her party that she couldn’t even condemn Hamas supporters encouraging violence against Jews by pretending hostage-taking wasn’t occurring.
