5 Times Biden Has Directly Urged “Violence” Against Political Opponents

By

ABC News reported Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, the lead impeachment manager, asked on Thursday, “If a president did invite a violent insurrection against our government, would that be a high crime and misdemeanor? Can we all agree, at least on that?”

But using Raskin’s own words as a metric, one could argue Biden himself has invited violence against elected officials and even public property.

Examples of Biden’s inciting words abound, but here are five times the new president embraced the idea of violence against people he viewed as his opponents in the political arena.

1. Biden said he wanted to “beat the hell” out of Trump.

2. Biden said he wanted to take Trump “behind the gym.”

3. Biden asked a Michigan autoworker to “go outside” with him.

4. Biden wanted to give GOP Sen. Kevin Cramer a pain “threshold.”

5. Biden encouraged an attack against Sen. Kevin Cramer.
