President Joe Biden can’t seem to shake the pro-Palestinian activists. On Saturday, a horde of hundreds of protesters showed up at his home in Delaware as he returned from Washington, D.C.

The demonstrators stood outside Biden’s home chanting “Biden, Biden, you can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!” They also chanted slogans calling for a ceasefire as Israel continues its ground offensive in Gaza against Hamas.

The protest was part of the “Delaware Palestine March,” which coincided with the president’s return after addressing the nation at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day.

President Biden is returning to his Delaware home on Saturday — only a short distance from hundreds of protestors accusing him of genocide.

Biden is returning to his residence in Wilmington after delivering a Veterans’ Day [sic] address as the “Delaware Palestine March” commences in the same area.

“President Biden, you can’t hide! We charge you with genocide!” the crowd chanted as protestors began gathering earlier this afternoon.

Protesters are pushing for Biden to push for a ceasefire in Gaza as Israel continues its ground invasion of Hamas-controlled territory.

This demonstration follows a series of major protests in Washington, D.C., where protesters targeted U.S. monuments, including the Andrew Jackson statue in front of the White House, and the General Marquis de Lafayette Statue. These acts of vandalism included smearing red paint on the White House gates and writing messages like “Death to Israel” and “Gaza is going to win” on buildings.

Protests such as these have been a regular occurrence all over the country since Hamas launched its surprise attack against Israel on October 7, killing about 1,400 Israelis, many of whom were civilians. Activists, mostly on the left, have been vocally denouncing Israel while defending and, at times, even praising Hamas.

The demonstrations occur against a backdrop of brutal violence in Gaza, in which Hamas has been using civilians as human shields against Israeli airstrikes while also using violence to prevent Gaza residents from fleeing the region.

So far, President Biden has not pushed Israel to call a ceasefire. While he has urged the Jewish state to use caution when attacking in Gaza and to allow humanitarian aid into the region, the president has maintained that Israel has a right to defend itself. The administration has tried to get Israel to agree to four-hour daily pauses in Gaza to allow civilians a chance to escape to the southern region of Gaza as Hamas loses control over the north, but it has not agreed.

Much of the pro-Palestinian and pro-Hamas protests have been funded by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Some have even become violent, as it did in Ventura County, California, when a Jewish man was killed during a demonstration.

In New York City, anti-Israel rioters became unruly at the Grand Central Station terminal and protested in various parts of the city. They attempted to kick the doors in at the station to fight with police officers.
