Biden: The Terrorists Didn’t Scare Boston
Biden shows the liberal mindset. You can’t hug the terrorists into liking you, you have to beat them into respecting you. That’s how bullies work.
Check it out:
The vice president at the TIME 100 Gala in New York praised America’s resilience. He said, “If the purpose of terror is to instill fear, you saw none of that in Boston.” Excuse me, folks. “If the purpose of terror is to instill fear, you saw none of that in Boston,” he said. “The only way terrorism wins is if we change our way of life, if we yield. And our message to terrorists is: You cannot break us. You cannot change us. We will never yield. We will not be intimidated.”
Now, the question is, was the vice president a little bit overindulgent in adult beverages, or was he joking? I don’t know what time the speech was. That might not be a factor anyway, but we watched a major American metropolitan area of more than one million people on lockdown. A million people were told to stay home from work, stay home from school, to shelter in place. Do not go outside. Boston’s subways, buses, cabs, even Amtrak service, was halted. They canceled a Bruins game. They canceled a Red Sox game. I saw a lot of lives changed.
What was Biden watching? They shut down an entire city.
These two terrorists had the city fathers telling everybody, “Don’t go outside. Stay in there. Don’t you dare go out. Don’t answer the door.” They had people cowering in fear in the corners of their own homes. And the vice president says (paraphrasing), “The only way terrorism wins is if we change our way of life, if we yield. And we didn’t yield, and we didn’t change our way of life, and they didn’t break us, and they didn’t change us, and they can’t, and we will never yield.” What was he watching? I saw a lot of lives being changed. If it wasn’t for a guy who was forced to go outside to smoke a cigarette by his wife, violating the order to stay inside, who knows where we would be today.
