Cayler Ellingson was his name and he was only 18 when he was struck by a 41-year old drunk driver. He later claimed that he had killed him because he was Republican.
The crime looks very similar to Heather Heyer’s death in Charlottesville. In 2017, a neo Nazi drove his car through a march of left-leaning people. It is different because Joe Biden won’t be blamed for the same thing that Donald Trump.
Just last week, Biden commemorated Heyer’s death at a “unity summit”The White House brought together left-wing organizations to fight the administration “MAGA Republicans”Biden called it a “threat” to America in his prime-time address in Philadelphia on Sep. 1.
Biden, who used Heyer’s story on the campaign trail throughout his 2020 presidential run, told her bereaved mother at the summit that “you’ve found purpose worthy of the life that Heather lived and purpose to help us stand united as she did.”
Biden has also repeated his false claim, that Trump called the neo-Nazis “fine people” in the aftermath of Heyer’s murder — a lie that has become known as the Charlottesville “fine people hoax.”
Trump actually stated that the neo-Nazis, and other violent extremists, should be exterminated “condemned totally.”Biden, Democrats and media blame Trump for inciting hatred, violence, and widespread destruction of property. This is despite the fact that Trump simply admitted some peaceful protestors on both sides.
So, how can we judge Biden’s remarks? In advance of Ellingson’s murder, in which he described a “continued battle” for the nation’s very “soul”For “MAGA Republicans”Who “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic”?
Trump did not wait to speak out against Heyer’s murder: he did so on the day it happened, and two days after that, and three days after that, when he called it an act of “terrorism”In the same conference press conference as “very fine people” remark.
Biden has said nothing about Ellingson’s murder, nor has he been asked to do so, even though his rhetoric was echoed by the driver who killed the young man over a political argument. Biden is accused of being the murderer “told State Radio that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group and that he was afraid they were ‘coming to get him.’” Allowing for the man’s drunken state, and possible mental illness, it is hard to avoid the fact that his words and sense of alarm reflected Biden’s own rhetoric.
In the days leading up to Biden’s Philadelphia speech, after he told Democrat donors that Trump supporters were “semi-fascist,”Biden White House refused to distinguish between “extremist MAGA Republicans”ordinary GOP voters because they were “supporting an authoritarian figure.” There is a more of a direct connection between Biden’s words and Ellingson’s murder than there ever was with Trump and Heyer’s, yet the media have not, and will not, hold Biden to blame.
