If you listened to Joe Biden since the election (and we don’t blame you if you haven’t), then you’ve heard the Democrat calling for unity among all Americans.
He says he wants to be president for all Americans—even if you didn’t vote for him.
Odd, since the election hasn’t been certified and recounts and lawsuits might change everything in the coming weeks.
It’s also odd that he claims to support all Americans when he already plans to undo much of Trump’s work with executive orders.
But it’s clear that Biden’s own supporters aren’t even buying this “call for unity.” Because they just can’t help celebrating Trump’s supposed defeat, with things like a Trump pig-nose head on a pike:

That. Is. Terrible. And not much better? A crowd formed up in a circle kicking a symbol of Trump around:
About a 1K people milled about #PhiladelphiaCityHall this afternoon, centered around a cone-shaped pillow-like item bearing Trump’s face.
People ritualistically kicked, slammed, and punched it to much applause.
It’s disturbing because symbolic violence leads to actual violence. pic.twitter.com/m3o9PrGggl

Numerous videos and stories have come out over the weekend showing Democrats “celebrating” the results of the election.
Instead of celebrating Biden, they are rejoicing that it appears Trump will no longer be president. But how are they doing it, by showing off symbolic acts of aggression against the man.
It’s clear that those who voted for Biden didn’t do so because they believe in the man, but because they hated Trump.
If they really rallied around Biden, as they did for Obama years ago, wouldn’t they want to put aside their difference and seek unity?
Instead, we hear calls from some leftists to keep a “list” of everyone who supported Trump—as if to say they want payback.
Do they even care what Biden has to say? Do they even know or care what he wants to do as president?
Doesn’t seem that way. It seems like they’d rather flood the streets celebrating the figurative demise of Trump than the start of a new administration.
And as we all know, symbolic violence can easily lead to real violence.
- Joe Biden called for unity, claiming he’d be everyone’s president.
- But supposed Biden supporters spent the weekend symbolically attacking Donald Trump.
- There appears to be no desire to “unite” Americans coming from the left.
