ATLANTA (LifeSiteNews) — President Joe Biden commemorated the birthday of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. over the weekend with an address at King’s Ebenezer Baptist Church in Georgia, paying lip service to unity while taking multiple opportunities to exacerbate America’s divisions.

“Let’s lay one thing to rest,” Biden said in the opening of his remarks. “I may be a practicing Catholic — we used to go to 7:30 Mass every morning, in high school and going into college, before I went to the Black church.” He added, “That’s where we’d organize to march to desegregate the city.”

The president was repeating a claim he frequently made on the campaign trail, but members of the church in question, Union Baptist Church in Wilmington, Delaware, have said in interviews they cannot recall him attending. Further, Biden acknowledged in 1987 that he “wasn’t an activist” during the civil rights era, despite the boasts he would go on to make.

“I’m God-fearing thanks to my parents and to the nuns and priests who taught me in school, but I — I am no preacher,” said the aggressively pro-abortion politician. “But I’ve tried to walk my faith, as all of you have.”

“I stand here at a critical juncture for the United States and the world, in my view,” Biden told the audience, an “inflection point” in history “where what happens in the last few years and will happen in the next six or eight years, they’re going to determine what the world looks like the next 30 to 40 years.” He asked if America was going to choose “democracy over autocracy,” “a community over chaos,” and “love over hate.”

In the aftermath of the leak of the Supreme Court majority opinion draft overruling Roe v. Wade, lawless vandals backed by the abortion lobby and pro-abortion politicians have launched riots and violent attacks on pro-life entities across America, from pregnancy centers to churches, and even targeted Justices' homes. 

This widespread, organized effort not only sets a dangerous standard for how groups and individuals may opt to stage demonstrations going forward, but begs the question of how the pro-abortion crowd would behave if and when the Supreme Court officially overturns Roe later this summer.

And, worst of all, the White House has largely turned a blind eye to these riots, with Joe Biden -- who at one time claimed to be personally opposed to abortion due to his Catholic faith -- now acting as the foremost advocate for unfettered abortion access in America.

Biden's nonexistent response must be addressed, and the White House needs to know that the American people demand better from their supposed "leader."

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to stop beating around the bush and finally issue a formal statement condemning the violent riots and attacks on pro-life institutions across our country in the wake of the leaked Supreme Court majority opinion draft overturning Roe v. Wade.

Over Mother's Day weekend, pro-abortion attacks broke out across America, with increasingly depraved activists targeting pregnancy centers, pro-life advocacy organizations, and churches with either disruptive demonstrations or, in some cases, vandalism and outright violence.

Among the most barbaric occurrences was the vicious attack on Wisconsin Family Action, a pro-life group headquartered in Madison, where vandals threw a Molotov cocktail into an office window, started a fire on one of its walls, and left a threatening graffiti message reading "If abortions aren't safe then you aren't either."

Review a FULL LIST of other appalling attacks HERE.

They even descended upon the homes of Supreme Court Justices like Samuel Alito, Brett Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice John Roberts, who appear poised to formally issue the final blow to Roe v. Wade in the coming weeks, after publishing a map with their private addresses.

The case, which was decided nearly 50 years ago in 1973, saw members of the bench fabricate a constitutional "right" to abortion, depriving individual states from crafting their own laws to protect life. However, should Roe, as expected, be overturned, the matter of abortion would be returned to the states, where it always belonged, giving lawmakers the ability to propose legislation that would either place strong restrictions on the procedure or, in some cases, ban it outright.

And while, of course, freedom of speech must be protected and defended for all Americans, demonstrations that devolve into vandalism, rioting, the use of intimidation tactics against members of the judiciary (or anyone else, for that matter), or violence in any form must NEVER be tolerated.

But the White House seems to be taking a different approach...

It wasn't until Monday afternoon that Press Secretary Jen Psaki finally acknowledged the threat posed to Supreme Court Justices by out-of-control pro-abotion activists, claiming that "judges perform an incredibly important function in our society, and they must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety."

This is true, but it took Psaki an entire week to make any semblance of a definitive statement about the White House's position on this urgent matter. In fact, Psaki previously refused to discourage the targeting of Justices' homes when asked, insisting that pro-abortion groups were staging "peaceful protests" instead; she even failed to condemn the leak itself -- an unprecedented breach of trust and rejection of institutional norms that could permanently damage the standing of the court and its ability to function as an apolitical body.


And, of course, Joe Biden, himself, has been virtually silent on the matter, failing to effectively speak out against these riots and reassure the American people that those who seek to vandalize property and perpetrate violence will be held legally accountable for their actions by the Department of Justice.

This is entirely unacceptable behavior from a commander-in-chief, and as political allies like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (rather ironically) incite insurrection by labeling the Supreme Court's pending decision a "call to arms," the American people must demand that Joe Biden clarify where he stands, and whose side he's really on.
 

The rule of law must be upheld and applied equally, and that means calling out radical anti-life rioters and ensuring there are consequences for their violent outbursts and destruction of property across the country.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition calling on Joe Biden to condemn these rioters, and direct the U.S. Department of Justice to take action that will hold them accountable for their actions under the law.

Thank you!

The implication was that Biden represents the former options and his political enemies the latter. In fact, the president and his allies have favored legislation that would severely limit states’ ability to ensure reliable democratic elections, his White House has admitted to urging social media platforms to suppress information vital to political decision making, and his administration has pushed a narrative of hateful right-wing extremists threatening America while neglecting the larger danger of left-wing, pro-abortion threats and violence.

Biden was not shy about invoking religion, claiming his goal “to redeem the soul of America” included recognizing that “as the Bible teaches us, we must be doers of the Word,” and that America is at her best when “we hear and heed the injunctions of the Lord and the whispers of the angels.”

Yet this comfort for framing political objectives in religious terms disappears on the subject of abortion, where the teachings of Biden’s Catholic Church are diametrically opposed to the values of the Democrat Party. Biden, who supports abortion-on-demand without legal limits and at taxpayer expense, said in 2015 he is “prepared to accept as a matter of faith” that “at the moment of conception there’s human life and being,” but would not “impose” a “rigid” or “precise” view on the issue that is “born out of my faith, on other people who are equally God­-fearing, equally as committed to life.”

“The battle for the soul of this nation is perennial,” he went on. “It’s a constant struggle between hope and fear, kindness and cruelty, justice and injustice against those who traffic in racism, extremism, and insurrection; a battle fought on battlefields and bridges, from courthouses and ballot boxes, to pulpits and protests.”

The president offered no examples of individuals or groups trafficking in “racism, extremism, and insurrection,” but all three are commonly used on the Left as generic pejoratives for Republicans and conservatives. The line echoes Biden’s notorious claim that his opponents represent an undefined “extreme MAGA philosophy” that is “like semi-fascism.”

“But at this inflection point, we know there’s a lot of work that has to continue on economic justice, civil rights, voting rights, on protecting our democracy, and on remembering that our job is to redeem the soul of America,” Biden declared, relying on the common left-wing tactic of misrepresenting goals such as wealth redistribution, banning voter identification, regulating online speech, and forced recognition of “gender identity” as continuations of past battles for equal protection of constitutional rights.

Biden’s approval rating currently sits at 44 percent according to the RealClearPolitics average. Republicans are currently debating whether former President Donald Trump or Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would be the best choice to challenge him for the presidency in 2024.
