Declaring ‘silence is complicity,’ Biden vows action to stop hate crimes
WASHINGTON: Presi nt Joe Biden and Vice Presi nt Kla Harris traveled on Friday to Atlanta to express grief for the victims of a mass sh ting that left eight people dead, six of them women of Asian descent, describing the tragedy as part of an increase in racially motivated violence and pledging to take action ag inst hate and discrimination.
The gruesome sh tings on Tuesday in Atlanta thrust Biden and Harris into the middle of a national struggle to confront the harassment and violence ag inst Asian Americans from people angry about the coronavir s pandemic that has killed more than a half-million people.
“They’ve been attacked, blamed, scapegoated and harassed. They’ve been verbally assaulted, physically assaulted, killed,” Biden lamented after a meeting with leaders of Atlanta’s Asian American community that he described as heart-wrenching to be part of.
“It’s been a year of living in fear for their lives,” the presi nt said.
Biden expressed empathy for the victims’ families, who he said were left with “broken hearts and unanswered questions.” And he said Americans should take responsibility for failing to express enough outrage about the targeting of people of Asian descent during the pandemic.
“Because our silence is complicity,” he said. “We cannot be complicit. We have to speak out. We have to act.”
Biden had by his side the nation’s first vice presi nt of Asian descent, who was — just through her presence — a powerful symbol of efforts to reject racial animosity and bias.
Some Trump people are still having burnol moments after he was kicked out. Trying to create violence in the nation. Just like rabid bhakts.
Too little too late. The Trumpism and racism is still alive and infused in ordinary Americans, just like Feku's Hindutva/RSS ideology here in India. There is no way to put the genie back in the bottle now, no matter how hard Biden Ji tries.
“Silence is complicity”- message for our Feku and andh bhakts,babas, moolahs ,padres who aresilent whenever hate or hate crime occurs.
Trump's Zombie Army feel let down as the Asian American vers dumped Trump for Kla Harris
Says Manmohan Singh of USA
Why is Kla silent on Meena Harris tweets?
Modibhakts who are also Trumpbhakts are out in full force attacking Biden because his stand im favour of de acy and fre m rubs them the wrong way. The bhakts are scared $hitless that the fate that befell Trump may also befall their beloved supreme leader RSS pracharak Modi
Joe Biden and his are also responsible for spreading hatred and violence in America to come to power.
拜登及民 主党也要为在美国传播仇恨和暴 力而负责
Biden should also take action ag inst Indian jhathsanghi radical group
First America should eliminate racism in universities especially ag inst Hindus who are being deliberately targeted such as Harvard.

First give the Indigenous Peoples of The Americas their land back .
Wow Biden is turning out to be a strong, wise and bnced leader. Wasn't expecting that at all. It's a pity that while other countries have great people as their leaders we have uneducated fake degree holders leading the nation who constantly lie brazenly in front of camera and stay silent when questions are raised.
In USA the outsiders are being killed by the white Americans. In India, the intruders killed thousands of Hindus. Still India is secular de ratic country.
The leftist media is horrendous! Had it been the Trump administration, they would have squarely blamed Him for the violence
Abusive trolls and Jehadi are working as stimulus in such hate crimes.
Humanity dies in darkness of hate and jealousy.
No De acy in USA.
