It really says a lot about who you surround yourself with.
And boy does Joe Biden choose to surround himself with radical leftists!
In a previous tweet, a member of Biden’s campaign tweeted that cops are worse than “pigs.”
She also joined the radical BLM movement in calling for defunding the police.
Here’s details on the story from Fox News:
A supervising video producer for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign tweeted a meme in June that urged people to stop calling the police “pigs” — but only because unlike the police, pigs are “highly intelligent and empathetic animals who would never racially profile you.”
The videographer, Sara Pearl, also retweeted a user’s comment that while “pigs are sweet, intelligent and compassionate,” police officers are “monsters” who “don’t deserve to be called pigs.”
On June 1, Pearl tweeted simply, “#DefundPolice.” Days later, she said Buffalo’s police department should be “defunded immediately.”
And, after several Dallas police officers were killed in 2016 by a sniper who “wanted to kill white people,” Pearl dinged the National Rifle Association for tweeting its condolences in that case but not for prior shootings: “Of course they respond to the officers but not to the previous shootings :(“
The Biden campaign did not reply to Fox News’ request for comment, although the campaign confirmed it received the request for comment. Fox News also reached out to Pearl for comment. Pearl did not reply, but she deleted all of these tweets shortly afterward.
The lack of response from the Biden team surprised conservatives.
The Trump campaign released a Friday statement saying “now Biden employs a staffer who uses the most vile, inflammatory, and incendiary language to target the brave men and women who risk their own lives to keep us safe.”
“How can Joe Biden look in the faces of grieving law enforcement families whose loved ones died in the line of duty?” said Bob Paduchik, a Trump campaign adviser. “Never in history has a major party campaign so angrily fanned the flames of hatred against our nation’s heroes.”
Trump’s campaign has it completely right.
Why would we ever elect a man who doesn’t care about the men and women that serve to protect us?
Here’s responses on Twitter to the story:
This disrespect, calling police officers "pigs", has got to stop.
Furthering it will only lead to more violence, and in some cases the murder of police officers.
King5 reports that a man has been charged for killing a police office he referred to as a "pig":
The man accused of shooting two Bothell police officers, killing one of them, while they were still in their patrol car has been charged.
Henry Eugene Washington, 37, was charged Friday with aggravated murder in the first degree, attempted murder in the first degree and vehicular assault, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office. He is being held without bail.
Bothell Officer Jonathan Shoop, 32, died in the crossfire and his partner, Officer Mustafa Kumcur, was wounded.
Court documents released Friday are revealing more about how the deadly shooting on Monday, July 13, happened.
According to the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team (SMART), the agency investigating the shooting, Officers Shoop and Kumcur made a routine traffic stop on Washington's vehicle at about 9:40 p.m. for not having a license plate.
Washington initially stopped and spoke with the officers briefly, but then took off in his vehicle and the officers pursued him while in their patrol car.
Washington ended up striking a pedestrian riding a scooter in the crosswalk and crashed facing the wrong direction in the westbound lanes of SR-522.
When Officers Shoop and Kumcur arrived shortly after the crash, Washington was already out of his vehicle and walking away. But when the officers got on scene, Washington turned and started walking fast toward the officer's patrol car while holding a pistol and opened fire, according to SMART.
Washington allegedly fired two shots into the patrol car, one broke the driver's side window, and the other hit Officer Kumcur's firearm, which caused it to ricochet and graze Kumcur's head.
During the attack, Officer Kumcur fired multiple rounds at Washington from inside the patrol car, and one of those shots struck Officer Shoop in the head, killing him in the crossfire, according to SMART.
The King County Prosecutor’s Office said, “The fact that Mr. Washington did not fire the fatal shot is immaterial to his culpability in this crime. But for Mr. Washington’s directed attack on the officers, Officer Shoop would be alive today.”
Witnesses to the shooting said Washington had clear hostility toward the officers yelling "come on pigs" as he advanced toward their patrol car with a gun in his hand, according to court documents released Friday.
