Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Joe Biden is Just a Senile Old Bigot and Racist.

 

Joe Biden’s latest bigoted and racist remark no doubt resulted in numerous facepalms by his handlers who have valiantly tried to keep the doddering, senile candidate on message. Unlike some of Biden’s more incoherent mumbling, strange, tangential, and meandering remarks on a whole host of topics, Biden’s latest pronouncement was delivered emphatically and clearly:

“Unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”

There is a startling similarity of this remark to Biden’s comment about then-2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama, specifically, that Obama was:

“… the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean.”

It’s unclear why Biden holds the African-American community in such low regard or thinks that they can’t think rationally or independently or that they somehow have poorer personal hygiene than other racial and ethnic groups but it is notable that at about the time Biden spouted this latest gem, President Trump and Vice-President Pence were swearing in Air Force General Charles “CQ” Brown as the first African-American leader of a military branch in the nation’s history. One hopes, of course, that General Brown passes Joe Biden’s standards for articulate speech, intelligence, and personal hygiene.

If this was an isolated incident, the obvious bigotry of Biden’s latest remark might be dismissed or forgiven even as Biden apologists and news anchors may begin to characterize the remark as an example of misspeaking by the often confused candidate. Unfortunately for the Biden campaign, this is just the latest addition to a long list of bigoted and racist remarks that have belittled not only blacks in America but Indians and other racial and ethnic groups.

Whether this latest Biden remark belittling African-Americans gets any significant media coverage remains to be seen. If it does, it is likely to further erode his support in the African-American community and may transition more votes to Donald Trump.

    Oh, I think we know the answer to that. ; )

    Brian,

    Of course, a woke 20 something wouldn’t be able to recognize a real racist if their life depended on it. They’ve never seen or heard one because they are so rare nowadays. Old Joe is the genuine article. He’s got a head full of every narrow-minded stereotype.

    About 5 years ago Biden, as Vice President, was speaking to a group of Rabbis in South Florida. Our Rabbi attended. When he came back from the meeting he seemed shocked. He said that he had asked Biden a question and Biden had responded in a way that made our Rabbi consider Biden an anti-Semite. I’ve known our Rabbi for 20 years. I can’t remember him saying anything like this about anybody else.

    You couldn’t write fiction like this. The woke party is nominating a candidate for the Presidency of the United States that is a senile bigot. Astounding.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Half of silicon valley is working on setting up a deepfake operation that will allow someone younger to play Biden in the Biden-Trump video debate.

    Actually, one could make a good parody video of that.

    I could swear that some of his TV ads have been put together from audio clips making him sound alert and articulate. They switch back and forth with pics of him at a podium making it sound like there is cheering at his remarks.

    Let’s give credit where credit is due. He spoke in complete sentences! They found a medication balance that allows him to recite a coherent thought! Of course it was racist tripe, he’s still Joe Biden.

    Joe Biden has no monopoly on racist tripe. Didn’t we just have a red hot thread on AOC?

    I’m not sure how this message will be received by either ‘community’. 

    The point of diversity is usually that there are not enough [color] people per white people. Maybe Joe – and the whole of the left – think of black people as the monochrome and alike-thinking people who make diversity happen through their addition to a group, whereas Latinos have some members who are so wild and crazy as to vote Republican sometimes and are therefore ‘diverse’ (but not in the good way). 

    In short, I think he is addled and said something stupid, but I’m not so sure he said something damaging.

    Addled, perhaps. But this would be along-standing condition.

    This is special. Biden is telling us that Barack Obama, Colin Powell, Maya Angelou, Colin Kaepernick, Herman Cain, Doug Williams, Thomas Sowell, Bill Cosby, MC Hammer, Henry Louis Wallace, Ben Carson, and Gil-Scott Heron are politically similar in their outlooks. Biden has a staggering intellect.

    ct,

    How about a full-length movie comedy. Instead of the deep fake, they do a full android version of the candidate. The wife of the candidate falls in love with the android, leaves the actual candidate in a retirement home, and runs off with the android.

    A million laughs. Another comedy of terrors.

    While he’s getting hammered for essentially claiming all Blacks think alike, Biden actually saw that as a compliment when he made the statement, because they were thinking alike in supporting Democrats, and goes back to his earlier comment that if you didn’t vote Democrat, you weren’t really black.

    His actual complaint was that Latino voters aren’t enough like Black voters — Puerto Rican voters in New York or Mexican voters in California may display the same type of 90-95 percent loyalty to the Democratic Party, but Mexican voters away from the border areas in Texas, or Cuban and Venezuelan voters in Florida are still pretty sour on the Dems’ policies, espeically as it relates to Latin America. It’s those people who Biden sees as the problem, which is why he made the comment twice, before being told he was insulting Black voters and needed to apologize.

    Have pity on poor Senile Joe the Rapist. He is a train wreck in the making. 

    Short term memory goes first when you have dementia. Senile Joe doesn’t know what he is saying half the time, and what he does remember of his political talking points is what was okay like 30 years ago when he was playing footsie with old time segregationists. So his now racist statements could pass muster at least a little bit better back in the day or at least could be covered up easier before there was an internet.

    Given Biden’s inability to string two sentences together without losing his way, if Biden wins, it’s going to be very difficult to convince me that the election wasn’t stolen.

    But I don’t think the Democrats care. They’d rather burn down the country than lose control. (See the last four years for evidence.)

    What’s really going to cause anger is if some of the swing stats flip in both directions — i.e., Biden gains a Michigan but loses Virginia, or gains Wisconsin but loses Minnesota, since the conventional wisdom is narrow 2016 swing states can only flip in 2020 from Republican to Democrat, and couldn’t possibly go in the other direction. I’d really expect to hear howls of protest if that plays out.

    What has always amazed me is the description of Trump as “racist” in the sense of having a negative African-American bias. They’ve had to “stretch” his comments on Mexican bad elements (and he took pains to say some were fine people in same comments) and possibly something anti Islamic terrorist to get close. He’s a bit exposed on women because of the locker room language tape although on balance has promoted and helped many women. Now here comes Biden with some brain spillage that no one would let Trump get away with, and it just floats on by….
