The Democratic Presidential team of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made their first joint appearance on Wednesday at a small gathering near Biden’s home in Delaware and gave a speech that was strangely odd, and oddly strange.
Biden opened the event and talked about the protestors in Charlottesville 3 years ago, with scorn calling them names and mocking President Donald J. Trump’s supporters.
Harris today referred to the protesters currently “in the streets” who have destroyed cities and caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, and included countless rioters, looters, arsonists and cop killers as a “coalition of conscience.”

And the statement quickly made new on social media:
Is “Coalition of Conscience” new? That feels like it could have some staying power…

Immediately the left-leaning media pundits picked up the verbiage:
Media, @GloriaBorger: "@KamalaHarris called it 'a coalition of conscience' against @realdonaldTrump. @JoeBiden has said it's 'a fight for the soul of the nation.' She's saying the same thing, different language. The battle lines are completely drawn." pic.twitter.com/oUh2tOdoRG

Biden described Harris as “a child of immigrants” who “knows personally how immigrant families enrich our country as well as the challenges of what it means to grow up Black and Indian-American in the United States of America.” “And this morning, all across the nation, little girls woke up, especially little Black and brown girls that feel overlooked and undervalued in their communities, but today — today just maybe they’re seeing themselves for the first time in a new way as president and vice presidents,” Biden said.

Biden said,”Kamala is the right person” for the role of vice president. “Kamala, as you all know, is smart, she’s tough, she’s experienced, she’s a proven fighter for the backbone of this country. The middle class. For all those who are struggling to get into the middle class. Kamala knows how to govern, she knows how to make the hard calls. She’s ready to do this job on day one.”
Harris said, “When he saw what happened in Charlottesville three years ago today, he knew we were in a battle for the soul of our nation. And together with your help, that’s a battle we will win. Earlier this year, I said I’d do whatever Joe asked me to do. And so now I’m asking you to do the same.”
At the same time as the presser, something very strange was revealed by numerous posters on Twitter who had discovered that visiting the website for Antifa.com, went directly to Joe Biden’s campaign.
