A 2016 Facebook post from Biden’s deputy spokeswoman for the State Department made a ridiculous claim about police officers in the U.S.
Joe Biden’s new deputy spokeswoman for the State Department stated in 2016 that “the largest threat to U.S. national security are U.S cops. Not ISIS, not Russian hackers, not any one or anything else.”
In the same Facebook post, spokeswoman Jalina Porter also claimed that there was a “genocide against Blacks” in the U.S.
“If y’all don’t wake up and rise to this truth, the genocide against Blacks in America will continue until we are near extinct,” Porter went on to say. “That’s not the world I seek to live in or create for myself or those around me. I am calling out the majority because this means you need to take action … in your communities, churches, classrooms and with your Members of Congress. We can’t do this alone.”
The Washington Post has an editorial titled "Guns are white supremacy’s deadliest weapon."

Porter has since responded to the resurfacing of her post, and she suggested that it was “passionate and spur-of-the moment.”
“The pain I expressed was real,” Porter said. “Nevertheless, I should’ve chosen words that were less passionate and spur-of-the moment, as well as more constructive.”
Regardless of Porter’s response, her comments seem to be commonplace among Democrats and the radical left. Their history of demonizing police officers will only divide our nation further, and it will hurt communities that rely on effective law enforcement to thrive.
We must support the men and women of law enforcement if we want to heal our communities and have greater security.
