Geraldo Rivera joined Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday night to discuss the recent Biden administration spending 30 million dollars to opening facilities to provide drug users a ‘safe space’ to get high, while also providing the paraphernalia – shiny new crack pipes, clean needles, etc., etc. – to support their deadly habit.
Just when Geraldo thought it was a good idea to stand up for the new bill and acted so concerned about the CDC report that the fentanyl epidemic has killed over 100,000 Americans in the last year alone, it surely came back to him after 1 question.
I must say, the decision of the Biden administration with this ‘Passing Out Crack Pipes to Addicts’ is such a very irresponsible verdict.
Watch the argument below:
Dan Bongino @dbongino and Geraldo Rivera argue about the Biden admin’s plan to provide free crack pipes to addicts.
Geraldo defended Biden’s crackpipe plan,“I’m expecting the worst about to come out of your mouth, because, you know, if you are against it, you are a heartless monster who doesn’t care about the lives of junkies.
He said, “This is the question, do junkie’s lives matter? We lost 100,000 Americans in the last year to overdose deaths. Fentanyl is everywhere. It’s in all of these drugs. They [the Biden administration] opened these two pilot locations with a safe secure – where the junkies can shoot up – they’ve saved 114 lives in 6 weeks. It’s not a pretty thing, it’s awful. I hate it, and yet, what’s the option? Watching them overdose? Watching them die in the street?
Hannity interjects and suggests that law, including addiction treatment by trained drug counselors that can help these people overcome their addictions instead of enabling them to continue their downward spiral.
Geraldo continued,“There are therapists on-site, as I understand it, in the pilot locations. There are sanitary conditions. They [addicts] come in with their drugs, [it’s] not that the government is giving them drugs. I don’t like it, it’s ugly, but what I don’t like worse is the 100,000 dead junkies.”
Bongino then responded,“Geraldo, this is just juvenile and you constantly engage in this first-order thinking stuff. You do this with immigration too, where you never ask the question: OK, and then what? So you say, ‘well it’s not compassionate if we stop people who are suffering at the border,’ and then you never say to yourself ‘what if we tell people who come in the country illegally that if you come in, we’re going to make the process [easier for you] – we’re going to facilitate it [well, what then?], he posits.”
“This is the Geraldo model of thinking, and in this [crackpipe defense], you’re doing it again – you’re saying: ‘well, Sean, do you want five or six junkies to die? So we should make it easier for them to do drugs – never saying, ‘OK, well then what? What happens when we make it easier to do drugs? – Maybe [the inevitable result is] more people would do drugs, that’s what second-order thinking entails.” Bongigo continued.
“So, just to be clear here, you’re suggesting that because these people died of drugs – which is tragic, I don’t wish death on anyone – that we should make the drug-using process easier by giving the equipment to use drugs? There you go, the verdict is in. Does that make sense to you? Like how does that make sense? [Americans are overdosing on an unprecedented scale] So, let us give them the equipment to use more drugs.” Bongigo added.
Geraldo is doing his best and it’s just too bad to witness him stutter on live TV but Hannity has asked him 1 question that has slammed his defense on Biden’s crackpipe plan.
“Geraldo, you’re a great parent. I know you, I know your kids, and you are a great father. That I know about you. Now, [what if] your kid comes to you and says: ‘Dad, I’m smoking crack, you can’t stop me. And I’m shooting heroin, you can’t stop me. But I can’t get any clean needles. What are you going to do?“
After tap dancing around for a minute and refusing to acknowledge the question, Hannity finally gets Geraldo to answer, exposing the elitist hypocrisy behind his bootlicking virtue-signaling.
“I wouldn’t go out and buy clean syringes [for my son], I would not do that.“ Geraldo shakingly responded.
Geraldo is a big example of Biden’s administration being incompetent.
