Assault on America, Day 224: Does Biden really think being a minority equates to being poor?

Biden Gaffes
One can only imagine the sense of anticipation reporters must experience as they prepare to cover a Joe Biden speech. The former Obama VP and notorious gaffe machine says something inane or stupid at just about every campaign stop, guaranteeing journalists newsworthy tidbits to spice up their product.

Like fodder for a plow horse, ‘ol “Uncle Joe” can’t help but provide a little something special for everyone in the media business -- and they love him for it. “What cringe-worthy gaffe will Biden make today?” must be the catchphrase in every newsroom. We only know he’ll utter quotes worth repeating, and it won’t have anything to do with his issue platform!

Last week Biden appeared in Iowa (at the Iowa State Fair, et al.) and delivered his usual allotment of oddities. Zachary Halaschak reported at The Washington Examiner, “The 76-year-old former vice president, whose loquacious style and propensity for flubbing his lines endears him to some and draws mockery from others, was ending his speech at the state fairground in Des Moines when he attempted a rousing finish.

“’There is nothing we’ve ever decided to do we’ve been unable to do,’ he said. ‘Period. That’s not hyperbole. We have never, never, never failed when we’re together. And ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to get up.

“’Everybody knows who Donald Trump is. Even his supporters know who he is. We got to let him know who we are. We choose unity over division. We choose science over fiction. We choose truth over facts (emphasis added).’”

In case your mind was lulled to sleep by Biden’s usual puff and pontificating only to be suddenly jolted awake by the politician’s last line, he did indeed say “We choose truth over facts” -- Halaschak’s article contains a video snippet of the Democrat frontrunner blurting out the words at the conclusion of a lengthy soliloquy. Joe was clearly on a roll, and as has been the case his entire career, he couldn’t get his thoughts untangled from his mouth. Maybe that’s why Biden’s been shown over and over again to plagiarize others’ sayings… because he so often mangles his own.

Of course afterwards, Biden told a different Iowa audience that “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids…” Perhaps Biden really did mean it earlier when he said “We choose truth over facts” because this equally absurd statement revealed his hidden biases. Simply put, Biden associated “poor” with being a minority, or at least non-white. You almost have to feel sorry for the guy. Even if he’s got twice the polling support of his nearest competitor, Joe still must keep the “white supremacy” and racism thing at the forefront of his pitch or he’ll lose half his audience.

Let’s not forget, Biden also correlated being black with being dirty. Remember when he said “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American (Obama) who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” I’m not a psychiatrist, but when someone refers to minorities as “poor” and “clean” he’s struggling to address the topic of race relations without collapsing on himself.

To say “white” kids perform better in school -- because of “white privilege” or some other socioeconomic factors -- wouldn’t go over well in today’s race-is-everything Democrat party. It’s a degree of self-hate that all non-minority Democrat presidential aspirants must display to remain viable, even the women (Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand?) candidates. Do you see any of them standing up and saying how proud they are of their backgrounds and their Anglo-Saxon family heritage? Or if Biden dared speak glowingly about his life as a snobby pale white Washington elitist then folks like Al Sharpton wouldn’t be seen in mixed company with him.

(Note: As if this weren’t bad enough Biden was approached by a female student reporter at the Iowa State Fair who managed to get close enough to ask him a question about the number of genders. Joe grabbed her arm -- now he assaults people too! At least he didn’t sniff her hair!)

There were several more Biden-isms during the Democrat debate(s) a couple weeks ago when Obama’s right-hand-man was furiously trying to defend his former boss’s record against the non-stop onslaught of leftist Democrat candidate assaults. Joe even stumbled over himself and called Cory Booker (immediately to his right on stage) the “future president.” Biden said, “Fact is that the president, excuse me the future president here (referring to Booker). That, that the senator is talking about.”

Does Biden really think Cory Booker is the future president -- or is he just one, lying, two, intends to withdraw and eventually endorse Booker or three, didn’t remember where or who he was at that moment and thought Booker was really Obama? A number of commentators have suggested Joe’s showing his age by forgetting things like the distinction between a website address and a texting number, but what if Biden just doesn’t use that “stuff” and is therefore having a hard time figuring out the difference?

No one ever said being a presidential candidate is easy -- every word is recorded and scrutinized, but this is ridiculous. Biden’s not even a good politician. All he has is his spiel… and even it’s getting worn down and tired.

Whereas the mainstream establishment media frequently bashes President Donald Trump for any slight public misstatements or jumbled facts, they don’t seem nearly as put off by Biden’s verified reputation for appropriating other peoples’ thoughts and phrasing -- or the fact he says things that might indicate deeper biases and prejudices (like “poor kids” compared to “white kids”).  

No, to liberals, Biden is the (pardon the expression) great white hope, the one Democrat who polls well enough to give the swampy elite class optimism that Trump can be beaten despite the flourishing economy, relative peace abroad, a (mostly) contented domestic situation and other historic factors which would heavily favor an incumbent president.

Plus, Joe is apparently backed by nearly half of black voters (47% according to a recent Quinnipiac poll) despite being elderly, white, unsure of his own beliefs and his faultier-than-heck memory. African-American Democrats hold enormous sway in the party’s primaries not only because they constitute a large percentage of voters in any state with sizable black populations -- but also because they vote as a near-solid bloc in the general election. So goes the black vote, so goes the Democrat party. If you don’t believe it just ask Bernie Sanders, who lost to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries because she commanded such an overwhelming proportion of their support.

And black voters didn’t turn out for Hillary the way they did for Obama, either. It likely made the difference in states like Michigan and Pennsylvania. No wonder all the 2020 Democrats are crawling over broken glass to appeal to African-Americans with talk of Trump and conservatives’ “white supremacy,” slavery reparations and overt race hustling that would make Bill Clinton blush.

Biden doesn’t need to go heavy into policy details with this group; it’s all about perceived electability and getting Trump out of office. It doesn’t matter that Joe can’t remember or explain the terms of his own healthcare plan -- he’s got a recognizable connection to Obamacare. And Democrat voters don’t care that Biden often gets his figures wrong or makes insulting gaffes insinuating “poor children” are those who aren’t white. Why? Because Joe would proverbially put his big grubby gnarled paw on their collective shoulders and tell them about how great it’s going be when Donald Trump is sent packing!

And how we’ll get our “soul” back if he wins the presidency. Is that another racial reference too? Heck, if the late soul-singer Marvin Gaye were still alive Biden would probably be going around telling everyone how they hang out together.

You never know…perhaps Biden and Obama have a secret pact for the former president to stay out of the Democrat race until Biden feels it’s necessary for the “One” to jump in and shore up his left flank. Obama is being especially coy about his preferences but he certainly realizes his legacy won’t be resuscitated by anyone other than Biden. It’s clear from their actions the rest of the Democrat candidates want to get as far away from Obama as possible.

Time will tell. For now, President Trump’s policies and strategies are working like a charm, including down at the southern border. Stephen Dinan reported at The Washington Times, “Illegal immigration across the southwestern border has been cut dramatically over the past two months, officials revealed Thursday, pointing to President Trump’s deal with Mexico to step up that country’s enforcement as the chief reason.

“The Border Patrol nabbed about 72,000 people who sneaked across the border in July — a reduction of almost half compared with the peak of two months ago.

“Border cities that were so overwhelmed that they declared states of emergency are getting back to normal, with drops of 70% or more in the regions of El Paso, Texas, and Yuma, Arizona.”

Dinan’s story also indicated conditions at detention facilities are improving accordingly since the federal authorities aren’t dealing with the crushing numbers of illegals from earlier this year. Mexico’s keeping its end of the bargain as are certain central American governments who are stemming the flow of their citizens northward. All due to Trump’ policies.

According to witnesses such as Congressman Jim Jordan, it's something you can see happening. Jordan visited the border last week and received a tour from the good men and women of the border patrol. No “malarkey” there, Joe.

Nearly as predictable as the tides, Joe Biden will keep making speeches and he’ll continue saying things that cause decent people to shake their heads. Democrats must decide whether they want a presidential nominee who seems to be slipping more and more as the days go on. What will they do?
