Biden Picks Jen O’Malley Dillon, Failed Beto Campaign Mgr, as His Own
We’ve said before numerous times that Joe Biden is NOT moderate, no matter how many Democrats try to spin that narrative. But now, the proof is in his choice for campaign manager: Jen O’Malley Dillon, failed campaign manager for Beto O’Rourke. She hates guns and is a strong advocate for confiscation.
But of course, she is proud to join the Biden team.
“Like so many other Democrats who are unifying behind Joe Biden’s character and leadership, I’m excited to join the team at this critical moment.” Jen O’Malley Dillon
Dillon’s statement after an O’Rourke interview on gun confiscation:
“My son is 17 months old, which shouldn’t f—ing matter. But thinking of that baby with shrapnel is [sic] his face almost broke me. GET EVERY ONE OF THOSE GODDAMN GUNS OFF OUR STREETS.”

Jen O’Malley Dillon. Moderate. Calm. Balanced. Not. We’ve heard that Biden hasn’t advocated gun confiscation, yet he was instrumental in passing the “assault weapons ban” in 1994. So…what’s “moderate?” And this addition to his campaign team reveals a sharp left turn.
The Free Beacon reported,
“Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is hiring the architect of Beto O’Rourke’s failed primary campaign, tapping a vocal advocate of AR-15 confiscation to lead him to victory in the general election.
Jen O’Malley Dillon will be Biden’s new campaign manager, according to the Washington Post. While Biden has advocated for banning—but not confiscating—so-called assault weapons, Dillon led O’Rourke’s campaign as it adopted some of the most radical anti-gun policies in the Democratic field. The longtime Democratic strategist also publicly backed the former Texas congressman when he called for the confiscation of AR-15s and other popular firearms in the wake of the El Paso shooting.”
Biden told Beto after receiving his endorsement for the Democratic nomination that O’Rourke would be heading up Biden’s gun control agenda. That will likely push him further away from ordinary voters, but Biden is on a roll to the left.
When he was confronted by a gun owner at the Fiat-Chrysler plant in Michigan, he cursed the man out (as we previously reported). Joe Biden is most assuredly NOT a moderate. Will Dillon be able to change Biden in any significant way?
“I don’t think Beto’s former campaign manager can move Biden to be any more extreme on anti-gun-rights policy. Biden’s differences with Beto are so minor that they still destroy our Second Amendment Rights.” Alan Gottlieb, Second Amendment Foundation
“Joe Biden’s antipathy toward gun rights is evident. Voters, and our industry, have every reason to be suspicious of Joe Biden’s anti-gun platforms. He’s yet to offer a single idea to hold criminals accountable, but he’s adopted far-left positions on gun control.” Mark Oliva, NSSF (National Shooting Sports Foundation)
Biden hasn’t “shifted” left, he’s been headed that direction for years. He tends to float with the prevailing winds of the day, which are currently radical left wing. Jen O’Malley Dillon is just another stop along the way. She’s a failed campaign mgr for a failed candidate. We hope it will help sink the Democrat ship.
