White House with fences; Biden's White House unity

Biden’s message of unity is apparently nowhere to be found now, as even the White House recognizes the recent spike in violence.

A senior White House adviser recently acknowledged a “rise in hate” evidenced by attacks against Jewish and Asian Americans, despite President Biden’s message of “unity”.

Cedric Richmond, the senior adviser to the president, apparently blamed “dangerous rhetoric” about the COVID pandemic during the Trump administration for the uptick in hate crimes targeting Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

However, Richmond didn’t address an explanation for the increase in anti-Semitic attacks against Jewish people in the U.S. amid the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

“The rise in hate, period, has been something that this administration has been focused on from the beginning, whether it’s AAPI hate that came from COVID-19 and the dangerous rhetoric that we heard or whether it’s anti-Semitic violence, we’re concerned about one, homegrown violent extremists and we’re worried about the increase in hate,” Richmond said.

Despite his claims of becoming a “unifying” president, Biden’s time in office has been marked by the border crisis, and more recently, anti-Semitic violence. If Democrats are truly the party of “tolerance”, they are not doing a good job of spreading that message.

We cannot allow these anti-Semitic attacks to continue, or any form of violence. Democrats in power need to stand up against all forms of violence and work with Republicans to make sure it’s not tolerated.
