During Independence Day celebrations in major cities such as New York and Philadelphia, pro-Palestine protesters disrupted events with anti-Israel and anti-American demonstrations, clashing with police. Representative Cory Mills (R-FL) viciously denounced the protests in a recent appearance on Fox and Friends First, further claiming, "This is what the Democrats and Joe Biden [are] pandering to."

"It is absolutely disgusting to see these individuals present themselves in an anti-American way on a day where we fought against the English, fighting to revolt against the tyrannical dictatorship where many lives have been lost," said Rep. Mills, adding that while he respects the right to free speech in the United States as a combat veteran, "that is not what we are seeing here."

"And the sad part is that this is what the Democrats and Joe Biden [are] pandering to. This is the 13.2% of uncommitted votes in Michigan that he is unconstitutionally withholding Congressionally appropriated funds to help Israel to go out and defeat Hamas," Rep. Mills continued, referencing the approximately 102,000 voters who voted "uncommitted" in the Michigan Democratic primary as a form of protest against the Israel-Hamas war.

In March, Representative Mike Waltz (R-FL) similarly denounced President Biden's Israel policy as putting lipstick on "a political pig" to retain those uncommitted voters, saying the loss of those voters put the Biden campaign "in full panic mode and everything they are doing right now is about politics, not supporting our allies."

Mills further slammed the Biden Administration's lack of attention toward the remaining hostages held by Hamas, the 13 Gold Star families who lost loved ones in the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal in 2021, and the three more lost in Jordan at the end of January this year, despite the President claiming that no American soldiers died in his tenure.

The Florida Congressman concluded by asking why Biden was not doing more to counter the recent anti-American, anti-Israel protests in blue cities or states.

"Where is he to step up in blue cities and blue states, whether it is Minneapolis, whether it is Philadelphia, whether it is Baltimore, whether it is New York? The trend is that this is all in blue states because they believe in lawlessness and they believe in pandering to anti-American sentiments," Mills harshly concluded.
