It will be a crime against humanity if the Democratic Party insists on supporting a second term for President Joe Biden. The ridiculous argument of attempting to frighten voters with the prospect of a second Trump term will not work — it will only further suppress the youth vote. No left-leaning voter will even seriously consider Trump; they simply will not vote, and that inaction will be sufficiently deadly for the Democratic Party.

Biden missed the boat by producing endless funds for the genocide of Palestinians in rote manner, mimicking all American presidents since JFK attempted to hold Israel accountable by threatening to inspect Israeli nuclear capabilities just before his untimely assassination.

Since every sane person already knew that nothing could rein in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netenyahu, the crucial moment has long since past for an American president to forcibly restrain Israeli madness by simply withholding funds. Face it, Democrats, Biden blew it and the whole world knows it.

It will be a shame for Democrats to cling to a failure like Biden now when clearly he has just failed miserably the ultimate test of moral leadership. It requires no extraordinary psychic ability to foretell there will not be another chance now that approximately 28,000 Palestinians have been slaughtered to clear their land for American-funded Israeli urban renewal.
