    The White House issued a brutal response Monday to what it said was the "inappropriate" nickname President Biden has been given by critics of his support for Israel amid its war with Hamas terrorists.

    Dubbed "Genocide Joe," Biden has increasingly become the target of far-
    left protests across the country, including by some in his own party
    accusing him of supporting an effort to wipe out Gaza and the Palestinian people.

    "We're not worried about nicknames and bumper stickers. I mean, it's First Amendment free speech. The president's focused on making sure that we
    can continue to support Israel as they fight a terrible terrorist group, Hamas," National Security Council spokesman John Kirby initially told New
    York Post reporter Steven Nelson, who asked him for a response to the
    nickname during the White House press briefing.

    Kirby then shifted his response to blast those using the term "genocide"
    in a context outside of referring to the express goal of Hamas: the
    complete eradication of Jews.

    "People can say what they want on the sidewalk, and we respect that.
    That's what the First Amendment is about. But this word genocide is
    getting thrown around in a pretty inappropriate way by lots of different folks," he said.

    "What Hamas wants, make no mistake about it, is genocide. They want to
    wipe Israel off the map. They've said so publicly on more than one
    occasion, in fact, just recently. And they've said that they're not going
    to stop," he said, adding that attacks like that of Oct. 7 would continue
    to happen "again and again and again."
