Biden displays party split near Long Beach City College ahead of Newsom event

Long Beach City College’s Liberal Arts Campus was without students and faculty on Monday afternoon, Sept. 1, and evening.

Police barricaded the school and cordoned off several nearby residential roads.

Still, with President Joe Biden and Governor Gavin pushing the final campaign to oppose the withdrawal attempt within hours of setting foot on Newsom City College, the mood was calm.

Rather, it was a chaotic microcosm of racially biased tensions that gripped California, and California in particular – about 10 months after a controversial presidential election and a run-off election whose supporters are trying to oust Newsom.

Hundreds of people gathered on the corner of Clark Avenue and Carson Street – two streets around campus – with Biden and Newsom critics without a small pocket.

They hold signs supporting the withdrawal. They circled the area in retreat flags and other politically recognizable vehicles, with drivers honking their horns in solidarity with the crowd.

“We have a corrupt governor and a more corrupt president,” said Sheila Wang, a resident who lives a few blocks from campus. “We’re here to show that our governor has to go.”

Much of the reasoning behind Newsom’s attempt to oust him from office is to manage his coronavirus epidemic, which has resulted in massive business shutdowns and the inability of churches to keep services within a few months.

Biden, meanwhile, has been criticized in recent days on a number of issues, including vaccinating federal workers and withdrawing from Afghanistan, which ended America’s longest war – but one service member was killed in an attack on the airport in the capital, Kabul.

In fact, a piece of the poster was covered with the number 13, a reference to members of this service.

And, of course, many chatter during the protests centered on the false notion that former President Donald Trump lost last year’s presidential election due to voter fraud.

But not everyone gathered outside Long Beach City College to protest.

Shortly after half past one in the evening, Biden’s motorcade arrives at the campus and a line of families near the entrance waits to greet the president.

A few blocks away, meanwhile, a small group gathered in support of the president and governor – and opposed the withdrawal.

Nicolas Maldonado, one of them, will not receive a statement in Tuesday’s memoir. After all, he is from Florida.

But his presence at Long Beach City College – after taking off from Sunshine State – highlights the national impact surrounding the withdrawal.

“We need love right now,” Maldonado said. “And while Biden is not perfect, he is a president for the people.”

Meanwhile, due to the increase in tensions near the start of the early period of Newsm-Biden rally, police officials maintained the enclosure between two groups.

Although not everyone around City College was part of the scene. Rather, they looked at it with questioning.

Norma Norris, for example, said a huge rally just a block away from her home posed a security risk.

“They’re standing on the street,” he said, “and parking in our entire block.”

But he could do nothing about it:

America’s electoral fury came to Long Beach.
