Biden Freaks out on Stage for Mysterious Reasons

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Democrat Kathy Hochul got some campaign assistance from the sideshow act when Democrat Joe Biden showed up with a clown act to elevate Hochul’s run for the Governor of New York.

Hochul has been devastating her own chances at grabbing power in the state, so Biden making made a rare campaign trial appearance and continued to make headlines, but not for anything that would strengthen Hochul, but for Biden beclowning himself in front of the audience.

Biden was sort of mumbling and slurring his words at the event, obviously trying to scare the audience into supporting Hochul using the common tactics of instilling fear about ‘assault weapons,’ saying that bullets are 5 times faster and quicker than the speed of other bullets.

Biden has been debunked on this claim many times, including at left leading- Reason. Com who reported:

The muzzle velocity of an AR-15 (which is to say, the speed at which the bullet travels when it leaves the rifle) is about 3300 feet per second (here’s an anti-AR-15 Washington Monthly article confirming that). Other rifles have muzzle velocities in the same general range, 2500-4000 feet per second or so according to this list, or 2700-3150 in this list (PDF p. 45), though the velocity is also influenced in some measure by barrel length. If the AR-15 bullets are faster than most rifles (not “any other” rifles), they’re only slightly faster.

One can say what one will whether banning AR-15s is likely to reduce deaths. (I doubt that it will, either for mass shooting deaths or homicide deaths more generally.) But it seems pretty clear that President Biden’s argument for why it would do so is not correct.

But that didn’t stop Biden from lying to the American people again.

“Democrats have been rushing to help rescue Hochul following Republican candidate Lee Zeldin’s meteoric rise in the polls. New York, a deep blue state, is not supposed to be in play. The fact that it is so close says nothing good about Democrat chances come election night. I could write a whole other article on the insulting, tone-deaf things Hochul said at the “rally,” but really, I can’t just ignore this,” Boonchie reported for Red State, adding the following footage:

Bonchie went on to report more details:

“I feel like I say this in every piece I write on a Biden public appearance, but I’m at a loss. Did he get scared by his own shadow? I’m only half joking because even though we can’t see the stage, it doesn’t appear there was actually anything in his way. Later he walks in the same spot without issue. He seems genuinely startled at that moment, shouting “it’s black” without any further explanation. It was weird, even by Biden’s standards.

Adding:

“Great. Now we’re getting 6 more weeks of recession,” one Twitter user quipped in response, and I think that wins the day. The fact that the President of the United States has become a running punchline due to his senility is probably not a good thing, but we can at least have some fun in the meantime.

Speaking of which, Biden reprised his “deer in kevlar vests” line that he’s repeated many times over the years. Because apparently, he has no handlers brave enough to tell him how ridiculous he sounds.

Biden: “What comes out of the muzzle of an assault weapon is 5x quicker faster than what comes out of the muzzle of another gun. It compares kevlar vests, there are not a whole lot of deer out there wearing kevlar vests,” Greg Price posted.

“Another gun” is doing a ton of work there. What other gun? He can’t be talking about hunting rifles because their muzzle velocities are mostly comparable to that of an AR-15. Bigger calibers will be somewhat slower (while hitting with more mass), but they are nowhere near five times slower. Even pistols are only two to three times slower depending on the round and barrel length. Further, velocity is only one component of lethality when talking about firearms so what exactly is Biden’s point?

Regardless, the Second Amendment does not exist to hunt deer. It was a given when the Bill of Rights was drafted that people could own firearms and hunt. The right to bear arms was about something more. It was about ensuring the ability of individuals to own guns, organize, and protect themselves, including from a tyrannical government. The whole “deer in kevlar vests” thing is laughably stupid and irrelevant. Besides, if someone is wanting to pierce body armor, there are far better options than an AR-15.

Silliness and senility aside, though, the most consequential moment of Biden’s speech happened when he was actually coherent. While responding to a protester, the president point-blank stated that “there is no more drilling” just days before the mid-term elections.”

And the smackdown went on and on…

Biden to what is presumably a climate protester in the audience:

“No more drilling. There is no more drilling. I haven’t formed any new drilling,” Biden said at the appearance.

That statement comes on the heels of the White House rushing to clean up Biden’s promise to shut down all coal-fired power plants in the country. His handlers have been desperately trying to claim he’s pro-energy in the aftermath, but shouldn’t we trust what continues to come out of his mouth? Biden is the president, even if he’s obviously not the one calling the shots.

I can’t think of a dumber message to spread as voters get ready to head to the polls on election day. With inflation, energy, and gas prices through the roof, bragging that his administration has stopped all new drilling is like Biden admitting to an economic murder. I’m sure we’ll get another clean-up attempt soon enough, but the president has made clear what he really thinks, and voters should believe him.
