Biden is Accused of ‘genocide’ at Nantucket Event with Jill, Hunter and Baby Beau

The Nantucket Christmas tree lighting that President Joe Biden was attending Friday evening with his family was interrupted by ‘Free Palestine’ protesters.

The president, first lady Jill Biden and their children and grandchildren were gathered alongside the tree in Nantucket’s town square as the town crier led the countdown to get the tree illuminated.

But after that went off without a hitch – after technical difficulties last year – fewer than 10 protesters at the front of the crowd unveiled ‘free Palestine’ and ‘end apartheid’ signs, directly in the president’s line of sight.

‘Biden, Biden you can’t hide. We charge you with genocide,’ they chanted.

A man went up to the microphone to remind them ‘this is a community tree lighting’ and said that while he ‘respected their right to the First Amendment’ he encouraged them to stop.

The pro-Palestine demonstration popped up after Nantucket’s downtown Christmas tree was lit for the holiday season, with President Joe Biden and his family situated a short distance away

They resisted, but their message was drowned out by the crowd’s cheering and loud Christmas music playing.

The children’s choir rushed over to the president in the interim.

The demonstrators were all Nantucket natives or currently live on the island.

‘Nantucket Island has long been considered an exclusive vacation getaway for rich tourists. However, the protests on Friday night indicate that island residents are pushing back on their island and community being used as a safe haven for politicians and wealthy elites,’ said a press release about the protest.

Another pro-Palestine protest is scheduled for tomorrow, when the Biden family usually returns to the downtown shopping area for mark Small Business Saturday.

The Christmas tree lighting was the Biden family’s last stop off the day after taking over downtown Nantucket for several hours.

The president’s traditional Black Friday jaunt was delayed due to the first release of hostages from Gaza in the aftermath of Hamas’ brutal October 7 terror attack on Israel.

Biden has become a target of criticism over his steadfast support of Israel, whose military has killed tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians in their effort to root out Hamas fighters responsible for the October 7 attack.

He again said Friday that he asked Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be mindful of civilian casualties. 

‘I have encouraged the prime minister to focus on trying to reduce the number of casualties while he is attempting to eliminate Hamas, which is a legitimate objective he has. That’s a difficult task and I don’t know how long it will take,’ Biden said.

My expectation and hope is that as we move forward, the rest of the Arab world and the region is also putting pressure on all sides to slow this down, to bring this to an end as quickly as we can,’ he added.

He and Dr. Biden then left the room together to join the larger Biden clan.
