Biden Plays the Race Card

Crazy Joe Biden
Biden Plays the Race Card

U.S.A.-( As he debated with himself whether to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination, Joe Biden knew he had a problem.

As a senator from Delaware in the '70s, he had bashed busing to achieve racial balance in public schools as stupid and racist.

As chairman of Senate Judiciary in the hearings on the nomination of Clarence Thomas in 1991, Biden had been dismissive of the charges by Anita Hill that the future justice had sexually harassed her.

In 1994, Biden had steered to passage a tough anti-crime bill that led to a dramatic increase in the prison population.

Crime went down as U.S. prisons filled up, but Biden's bill came to be seen by many African Americans as discriminatory.

What to do? Acting on the adage that your best defense is a good offense, Biden decided to tear into President Donald Trump — for giving aid and comfort to white racists.

His announcement video began with footage of the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, highlighting Trump's remark, after the brawl that left a female protestor dead, that there were “very fine people on both sides.”

“With those words,” said Biden, “the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment, I realized that the threat to this nation was unlike any I had seen in my lifetime.”

Cut it out, Joe. This is just not credible.

Even he cannot believe Trump had in mind the neo-Nazis and Klansman chanting, “Jews will not replace us!” when Trump said there were “fine people” on both sides.

If this were truly a road-to-Damascus moment for Biden, calling forth a new resolve to remove so morally obtuse a resident of the Oval Office, why did he have to agonize so long before getting in the race?

And was Charlottesville, a riot involving Klansmen, neo-Nazis and radicals, really a “threat to this nation” unlike any Biden had seen in a lifetime that covers the Cuban missile crisis, Vietnam, the riots in 100 cities after Martin Luther King's assassination and Sept. 11?

Even the anti-Trump media seemed skeptical. Their first interviews after Biden's announcement were not about Charlottesville but why it took so long to call Anita Hill to apologize.

Yet there is an unstated message in the Biden video. It is this:

With the economy firing on all eight cylinders, and the drive for impeachment losing steam, a new strategy is emerging — to take Trump down by stuffing him in a box with white supremacists.

The strategy is not original. It was tried, but backfired on Hillary Clinton when she called Trump supporters “deplorables … racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic … bigots.”

This didn't sit well with some white folks in Wisconsin, Michigan and Middle Pennsylvania.

Yet the never-Trumpers seem to think it could work this time.

After Saturday's attack on the Passover service in Poway, California, which took a woman's life, Trump denounced the atrocity, expressed his condolences, called Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, who had been wounded, and consoled him for 15 minutes.

“Nevertheless,” wrote The Washington Post Monday in a front-page headline, “President's words push race to fore of campaign.”

“The rise of white nationalist violence during Trump's tenure is emerging as an issue,” said the Post, because Trump “previously played down the threat posed by white nationalism (and) … also has a long history of anti-Muslim remarks.”

The article should be taken seriously. For the Post is not only an enemy of Trump but a powerful institutional ally of the left. And during presidential campaigns, it doubles as an oppo research and attack arm of the Democratic Party.

“Violence, Hate Crimes Emerge as 2020 Issues” declared the inside headline on the Post story. The Post is not talking about customary crimes of violence in America or D.C. — robbery, rape, assault, battery, murder — a disproportionate share of which are committed by minorities of color.

The crimes that interest the Post are those committed by white males against minorities, which can be used to flesh out the picture of America that preexists in the mind of the left, if not in the real world.

Yet it does appear that issues of race, tribe and identity are becoming an obsession in our politics. This weekend, The New York Times faced charges of anti-Semitism for a cartoon of a blind Trump in a skullcap being led by a seeing-eye dog with the face of “Bibi” Netanyahu, who had a Star of David on his collar.

Recoiling under fire, the Times pulled the cartoon and apologized.

On Monday, Rev. Al Sharpton met with “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg. Subject of discussion: Reparations for slavery, which ended more than a century before the mayor was born.

“All is race,” wrote Disraeli in his novel “Tancred.” “There is no other truth.”

    1. Joe, pedophile, Biden what a fag….he stands on stage feeling up little girls and their kiss ass parents didn’t stop him what cowards. The only one that pushed creepy Joe away from his granddaughter was Jeff sessions who’s a wimpy kinda guy. Biden is scum, a liar, pedophile, anti American and a two faced old fart. He’s been involved in some very scandalous shit. Biden stands for Big. Idiot. Dumacrati. Evil. Narcissist.

    2. Joe is senile. He is a fool. Joe says go shoot a shotgun off your back porch. Joe goes around smelling hair and kissing women on the neck. Are all DEMOCRAPS baboons grooming their kind. He is as bad as clinton but just can’t get it up anymore. He is ready for the “home” because he is brain dead. DEMOCRAPS, like Joe, are a thing of the past. Get rid of them all or start preparing for civil war.

      1. @circle8, You could not be more right about Biden. Go Joe! You can do it! Cheat Bernie out of the nomination again, and maybe the libtard party will splinter for all time.

    3. Go back and watch the debate between Paul Ryan and Biden. Unbelievable how this absolute jerk presented himself. A complete a-whole. Really showed his true colors.

    4. I remember his speech to an audience of high ranking African-American voters when he used his ‘smarmy’ sounding voice to tell them that the opposition party would have ‘them all back in chains’. This was not long after he and Comrade Obama had wrapped the country in the chains of Obamacare.
      l remember him advising an audience to ‘if you feel threatened by a noise outside at night , just step out on your back porch with your double barrel shotgun and bust off a coupla’ rounds. That will get their attention.’ Yeah , and it will get you arrested in almost any municipality in this country.
      l am a 65 year old member of the old time Democratic Party, and too old to change affiliation now. BUT I’ll BE DAMNED IF I WILL EVER VOTE FOR AN IDIOT LIKE JOE BIDEN OR ANY OF THE SAME DEM/SOCS WHO NOW ARE RUNNING FOR POTUS OF THE COUNTRY I REMEMBER AND LOVED AND WAS SO PROUD OF .

        1. @ Harmon Ford You would be more than welcome to vote for the republican party nominee. The republicans, who may not be very forceful, are the party of sanity and reason. The other party is so far left their gourds are spinning.

    5. What about biden and his son hunter taking bribes from ukrain while biden was in charge of ukrain policy for the obongo administration?

      What about biden on tape saying he got the ukranian prosecutor fired and stopped the investigation?

      Beside being a complete noron and a molester he is totally corrupt and on tape admitting it. What is this info being held for?

      The idea that he is even a candidate is silly

    6. What did you know Joe and when did you know your administration was spying on an opposing political campaign during a presidential election?

      Is it a fair statement to say you and Obama make Nixon look like an amateur?

      As its VP, was the Obama administration influence on the 2016 presidential election, less, equal, or more than Russia’s?

      You look tired Joe. Slurring your words, incoherent speech in the first week of your announcement – better eat your Wheaties if you’re gonna keep up with Trump.

      1. @ John You forgot to mention that Joe has been sitting in a cushy chair in congress for fifty years, doing nothing but drawing a big salary. He is so out of condition he might not make it another week.

    7. I’ve been a Conservative Republican since making the mistake of voting for Mr. Detant…Jimmy Carter. I was young and impressionable. I thought Ronald Regan was going to be a joke…but I was wrong again and I did give him my vote. I’ve learned a lot about bleeding heart liberals. I’ve spent a lot of time straddling the fence…I have changed. I have crossed over the fence to the side of family values, morality, and helping people willing to help themselves when given a boost.

    8. Joe Biden did you wander away from the nursing home again? Please come back and take your dementia medication, lay down and take a nappie, and when you wake up the nurse will take you to the bathroom to go poop!

    9. Biden plays the race card out the of one side of his mouth while spewing that Trump is fostering the hate divide in the country out of the other side. This pos 50 year politician is even worse than H. Clinton.

    10. When all else fails throw out the race card. Divide and conquer the mass’s. You’re going to see the race card go into massive play now because Trump is designating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. Just like back during the last holocaust Muslims joined NAZIS they again have done so for this holocaust. Both NAZIS (socialists) and Muslims are now going to go total Ape sh-t. The NAZI left is freaking out as I type this. Their Muslim invasion has hit a rut in the road. They’re being put on a list. Now we the right are on a list and the left is getting listed. Perfect, looks like we’re going to have some fun now. Muslims here been giving me the stink eye for a long time and I’m bored with em. Maybe this push em off the edge, finally.
