Biden: Capitol rioters 'insurrectionists and anti-Semites,' should be prosecuted | The Times of Israel
The reference was to 6MWE, "Six Million Wasn't Enough," referring to the Jews murdered in the Nazi Holocaust. There was anti-Semitic and racist symbology at the storming of the Capitol, but the particular photo with the t-shirt Biden seemed to be referring to was erroneously identified on social media with the insurrection, and was taken at an earlier far-right event.

US President-elect Joe Biden cited anti-Semitic expressions by rioters in the US Capitol this week in saying that his Justice Department should prosecute them.

"Yes," he said Friday when a reporter asked if his Justice Department should prosecute the marauders whose looting of the Capitol this week in hopes of stopping Congress's affirmation of Biden as president-elect resulted in five deaths.

"They should be treated as a bunch of thugs, insurrectionists, anti-Semites," Biden said while addressing reporters in his home state of Delaware after an event introducing some of his Cabinet choices.

Biden has until now said he would not advise his Justice Department, seeking to draw a distinction with President Donald Trump, who pressured his attorneys-general to leave his friends alone and to prosecute his enemies. On Friday, taking questions from reporters, Biden said he would leave the charges to the discretion of the Justice Department, although it was clear he believed prosecution was merited.

Biden suggested Trump too should face investigation for his speech on Wednesday, in which he encouraged protesters to march on the Capitol.

"The difference here is this had the active encouragement of a sitting president of the United States and the way in which the breakdown of security occurred needs to be investigated," he said.

Biden noted that a key reason he ran for president was that he'd "thought for a long, long time that President Trump wasn't fit for the job."

"I've been saying for now, well, over a year, he's not fit to serve," Biden said. "He's one of the most incompetent presidents in the history of the United States of America."

As to the rioters, he said: "These are a bunch of thugs, they're terrorists, domestic terrorists and that will be a judgment for the justice department as to what the charges should be, but the fact is they should be prosecuted."

He quoted a slogan on a t-shirt that appeared in reporting of the riots on Wednesday. "'Six million is not enough,' I mean come on," he said.

The reference was to 6MWE, "Six Million Wasn't Enough," referring to the Jews murdered in the Nazi Holocaust.

There was anti-Semitic and racist symbology at the storming of the Capitol, but the particular photo with the t-shirt Biden seemed to be referring to was erroneously identified on social media with the insurrection, and was taken at an earlier far-right event.

Biden would not explicitly back efforts to remove Trump from the White House and insisted that impeachment was up to Congress. Instead, Biden said he was focused on the start of his own administration on Jan. 20, and he said his top three priorities are beating back the coronavirus, distributing vaccines fairly and equitably and reviving the struggling economy.

His comments laid bare the political balance Biden has worked to strike in the months since winning the presidential election. He has continued to sharply criticize Trump and nearly every facet of his administration but also worked to keep the public's attention focused on what the new administration will do rather than indulging recriminations against the last one.

Biden nonetheless conceded that Trump "exceeded my worst notions about him. He's been an embarrassment" and likened the "damage done to our reputation around the world" to "tin horn dictatorships." The president-elect also suggested that a key hurdle to removing Trump was that he has less than two weeks remaining in his term.

AP_21008692902978-640x400.jpg

"If we were six months out, we should be doing everything to get him out of office. Impeaching him again, trying to evoke the 25th Amendment, whatever it took," Biden said. "But I am focused now on us taking control as president and vice president on the 20th and to get our agenda moving as quickly as we can."

Trump would be the only president to be impeached twice. The House impeached him in late 2019, but the Republican-led Senate acquitted him. Removal from office could also prevent Trump from running for president in 2024, or ever holding the presidency again.

Most Democrats, and many Republicans, put the blame squarely on Trump after hundreds of protesters broke into the Capitol on Wednesday and caused destruction and mass evacuations. The president had urged his supporters to protest as Congress was counting the electoral votes that confirmed Biden's win. Five people died, including a Capitol Police officer.

000_8YA8PM-640x400.jpg

Biden called what happened a "god-awful debacle" and said it had "the active encouragement of the president of the United States."

The president-elect's comments came hours after Trump said that he planned to skip Biden's inauguration, becoming the first president in more than 150 years — and just the fourth in US history — to do so. Biden said he'd be "honored" to have Vice President Mike Pence at the swearing-in, but didn't feel the same way about Trump.

That's "one of the few things he and I have ever agreed on," Biden said. "It's a good thing, him not showing up."

I think Trump was always riding on the back of the tiger. At some point you will get off or fall off and the tiger will eat you. 

His rise in national politics was always linked , to one extent or another depending on how you see it, to far right themes of racism and anti-semitism , and anti-government , attitudes and expressions. 

People say Trump was not a racist, not an anti-semite, etc,  but his unsolvable problem is that those types of people were his most vocal and loyal support, and in the end his association with such beliefs led to his downfall.

When Trump and his father denied renting to people of color, that made him a racist and nothing has changed.  He won't rent at Trump Tower because he doesn't want his white renters to see black children in the lobby.  When he would visit properties, black employees were hidden out of sight and if they wanted to use the bathroom, they would have to go elsewhere to do so....RACIST!

I dont think Biden wants to prosecute anyone for what t-shirt they are wearing. 

Regardless, at the same time Trump was tweeting and saying on a video that he loved the people who entered the Capitol Building and they loved him, the scraggly looking guy with the  t shirt that promotes anti -semitic genocide was inside the Capitol trying to do Trump's bidding.

US President-elect Joe Biden cited anti-Semitic expressions by rioters in the US Capitol this week in saying that his Justice Department should prosecute them.

"Yes," he said Friday when a reporter asked if his Justice Department should prosecute the marauders whose looting of the Capitol this week in hopes of stopping Congress's affirmation of Biden as president-elect resulted in five deaths.

"They should be treated as a bunch of thugs, insurrectionists, anti-Semites," Biden said while addressing reporters in his home state of Delaware after an event introducing some of his Cabinet choices.

All of these sentences appear in this sequence in the Times Of Israel newspaper story. The sentence in red is a summary of the two sentences in blue. Or you could call it a preview of them if you want. In any case the red sentence prefaces the other two sentences and refers to them. You notice in the bottom blue sentence Biden says "They should be treated as a bunch of thugs, insurrectionists, anti-Semites,. That is specifically what the passage at the top US President-elect Joe Biden cited anti-Semitic expressions by rioters is referring to.

No, the bigot can't be arrested or prosecuted for wearing the shirt. It does show his idealogy and that is a violent idealogy. I believe that he will have a lot more to worry about than his bigoted shirt. Photos of him outside and inside the capitol building could lead to federal charges.

I doubt if there is a human that doesn't know what the shirt stands for. 

The ADL had been warning officials for weeks and finally became so alarmed at what they were seeing that they went public with it. 

The response was an epic failure and hopefully, we'll find out what the hell happened. 

In the meantime arrest as many of these rioters as possible. 

The legislator that was at the capital from West Virginia was arrested today.

 There is no debate as to what this means.

Same here Buzz. They may be secure on the surrounding ground area, but, what about from the air? 

I fear that in spite of the security they are planning to set up, I have a gut feeling that some kind of remote device or object, or a person, will be used to try and assassinate Biden, Pence, Harris and Pelosi. Others that may be targets are McConnell, Schmur, Romney and a few other Repubs Trump feels have betrayed him. They may even lob explosives into the area where the inauguration is taking place in order to take out as many as they can.

But, you can bet Trump will not go quietly into that good night, he must have his revenge, and he will hide out in the WH bunker like the coward he is, thinking that he will be able to reclaim his Presidency when all those he views as his enemies are dead. And no matter how much security they have around the inauguration area, there is always a way, and who knows if the people assigned to protect Biden are actually Trump supporters. 

Sure, these are all 'ifs', but, Trump and his supporters have already shown the world how sneaky and manipulative he is, so I for one would not put anything past any of them.

That is just my own opinion.

That might work, unless a sniper has bullet proof glass penetrating ammo. I am sure they will be taking all sorts of security steps, and I hope it will be enough to keep Biden safe from a snipers special ammo.

The level of Trumps anger and vindictive crave for revenge is beyond anywhere logical, so they will need to think like a professional sniper and take the necessary precautions. And there are also ex-military men and women taking part in the mobs who are trained in the use of highly deadly weapons that are easily made available to them by their great Leader, Trump. He will not accept failure this time.

I do believe that the balcony where the oath of office is given is lined with bulletproof shielding for the event. Designed to prevent a shot from ground level as the federal government already controls all the buildings and rooftops in the area that have line of sight access. The Secret Service has been doing that for quite some time now I believe.

American fascism has been primarily racist... but its xenophobia has also struck Brown people of all origins.

Trump himself has not been openly anti-Semitic, although he has used the usual dogwhistles.

Worldwide,fascism has always carried a dose of anti-Semitism. It is not at all surprising to see openly anti-Semitic rioters in Trump's army.

In 2003, she was elected district attorney of San Francisco. She was elected Attorney General of California in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. Harris has served as the junior United States senator from California since 2017. Harris defeated Loretta Sanchez in the 2016 Senate election to become the second African American woman and the first South Asian American to serve in the United States Senate.

If not one of these or some similar revelation, it's speculation on your part.  Repeating it doesn't make it any less speculative.
