Is Bernie Sanders crazy? Not if you compare Crazy Bernie to nutjob Joe Biden or lunatic Beto O’Rourke.
Commenting on criminal justice reform during Thursday night’s Democratic debate in Houston, Joe Biden said:
“The fact of the matter is that what’s happened is that we’re in a situation now where there are so many people who are in jail and shouldn’t be in jail. The whole means by which this should change is to — the model has to change. Nobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime.”
Nobody should be in jail for a nonviolent crime? You can’t get any crazier than that!
Nutjob Joe’s proposal is not only downright crazy, but it is also absolutely dangerous because sooner or later, a significant number of nonviolent criminals will become violent. Some years ago, for example, a man with an arrest history for passing bad checks shot to death a Houston grocery store cashier when she refused to accept his check.
And what do you suppose will happen if you come across a burglar while unarmed and try to stop him from taking off with your valuables? You’ll likely end up in a hospital or in the morgue … and one of Biden’s un-jailable nonviolent violent criminals sent you there.
You can be sure that Biden now has the grateful support of all big-time dope dealers with no history of violence, burglars, thieves, white-collar criminals and the scam artists who wipe out the life savings of the elderly.
You have to wonder why the anti-Trump media has remained absolutely silent about Nutjob Joe’s crazy proposal. If Trump or any other Republican had proposed that nonviolent criminals should not be locked up, the media would trumpet that story for weeks on end.
Almost as nutty as Biden was Beto O’Rourke when he was asked if he would confiscate AR-15s and AK-47s. O’Rourke answered:
“……… When we see that being used against children and in Odessa I met the mother of a 15-year-old girl who was shot by an AR-15 and that mother watched her bleed to death over the course of an hour because so many other people were shot by that AR-15 in Odessa and Midland there weren’t enough ambulances to get to them in time. Hell yes we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”
How crazy is O’Rourke’s plan? Well, in Texas and other pro-gun states, any attempt to confiscate AR-15s and AK-47s would lead to open warfare between the owners of such guns and the authorities.
Responding to O’Rourke, Texas state representative Briscoe Cain from Houston tweeted, “My AR-15 is ready for you, Robert Francis.” And you may recall that Charles Heston once declared, “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.” Cain and Heston were expressing exactly how the owners of AR-15s and AK-47s are going to react when the authorities come to take those guns away.
You don’t have to worry about Lunatic Beto ever becoming president. What is really frightening though is that Biden will very likely be the Democratic nominee and that all the polls show if the election were to be held today, Nutjob Joe would beat Trump by a comfortable margin.
