Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris, spoke with Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday, where she told Blake – who had a warrant for his arrest after he sexually assaulted a minor – that she was “proud of him.”
Blake was shot several times during a confrontation with police responding to a domestic dispute involving Blake. Blake was fighting with police, resisting arrest and attempted to enter his vehicle to reach for a weapon. The shooting left him paralyzed from the waist down.
At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct in connection with domestic abuse,” according to the Associated Press.
According to a criminal complaint filed in July, Blake is accused of sexually assaulting a woman back in May. The woman told police that Blake also took her car keys and a debit card from her before fleeing. Blake was also charged with disorderly conduct – domestic abuse and criminal trespass – domestic abuse.
These criminals are the types of people that the most powerful Democrats idolize as their heroes. This should speak volumes to their character and what they want for this country.
Harris visited with members of the Blake family on Monday as part of a visit to Milwaukee. She spoke to Blake Jr. by phone.
In a statement, an attorney representing the Blake family, Benjamin Crump, called Harris’ meeting with the family “inspirational and uplifting.”
Last Thursday, Biden visited Kenosha and also visited with the Blake family, including Jacob Blake Sr. – a man with a history full of racist, antisemitic, and antichristian activities on social media.
Biden called for the police officer who shot Blake, Rusten Sheskey, to be criminally charged after earlier blaming police entirely for the shooting calling it “systemic racism” while ignoring Blake’s violent criminal history and the fact that he was armed while resisting arrest.
While the Democrats have supported the violent riots that have ensued following the shooting of Blake, President Trump last week visited Kenosha to witness the destruction these riots have caused.
President Trump during his visit to Kenosha called the destructive riots “anti-American” while promising to help business owners rebuild.
“Kenosha been ravaged by anti-police and anti-American riots,” Trump said said at a roundtable with law enforcement and business owners after also visiting an emergency operations center.
“These are not acts of peaceful protests, but domestic terror,” he added..
“We’re going to get it fixed up, we’re going to help people rebuild their businesses in Kenosha…we’re getting it straightened out,” Trump told reporters.
“To stop the political violence we must also confront the radical ideology that includes this violence. Reckless far-left politicians continue to push the destructive message that our nation and our law enforcement are oppressive or racist — they’ll throw out any word that comes to them,” Trump expressed during his Kenosha visit.
While Biden and his ticket have bashed police in support of criminals, Trump has taken the opposite approach of “law and order” and the polls seem to show that it’s paying off well.
