(SNews) – Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has refused to condemn the sabotage of posters identifying Israeli nationals who were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists.
Numerous videos have gone viral showing hundreds of anti-Semites tearing down posters for the hostages who were taken during the October 7 terrorist attack that killed 1,400 in southern Israel.
The posters have been put up in cities across the world but mostly in the U.S. and Europe.
However, a large number of video clips have emerged showing radical activists pulling down the posters shortly after they were put up.
Jean-Pierre was asked about the matter during Tuesday’s White House press conference.
Reporters specifically asked if the White House believes those who are tearing down the posters “should be condemned.”
Jean-Pierre was also asked whether Biden and his administration believe that pulling down the posters constitutes a form of “peaceful protest.”
“Look, I, eh, I, I, I’ve sort of kind of seen the reporting here and there, I think it was from last week, right?” Jean-Pierre responded.
The reporter fired back by noting that “there’s been like 30 million videos that have gone around on this.”
“No, I know. I hear you. I hear you,” she responded.
“I’m just not going to – We’re not going to, I’m not going -”
She was pressed again on whether people should be pulling down the posters of kidnapped Israelis.
“I’m just not going to go into specifics on that particular thing,” Jean-Pierre responded.
She said that there were “real violent protests and threats that are happening right now” and that’s what the White House is focused on.
When pressed again on the matter, she once again refused to answer.
