The Twitterverse and liberal mainstream media is notorious for jumping all over anything President Trump says. Anything. But it’s no surprise they’re letting Joe Biden slide for some pretty damning things he’s done and said when it comes to issues of social justice and racism – things that no presidential nominee in 2020 should have attributed to them.
For years, Joe Biden has proudly owned the 1994 “Biden Crime Law,” bragging that it encouraged states to effectively increase their prison sentences by paying them to build more prisons — a direct endorsement of more incarceration.
At a time when our society is considering the impact of “systemic racism,” why aren’t we talking about the fact that the current Democratic Presidential nominee wrote one of the most devastating pieces of legislation in recent history that put hundreds of thousands of young black men in prison to serve lengthy sentences for non-violent offences?
But this should come as no surprise, since Joe Biden has a history of friendships with noted white supremacists and segregationists. In fact, as Vice President of the United States, Biden praised former Ku Klux Klan “Exalted Cyclops” Robert Byrd after his death, calling him a “friend,” “mentor,” and “guide” – and noting that he always called him “Leader.” Byrd wasn’t the only one; Biden also called another Senate segregationist, Strom Thurmond, “one of my closest friends,” and thanked him on the Senate floor for helping to pass laws to incarcerate Black Americans for crack cocaine offenses.
Adding insult to injury, just last month, Joe Biden remarked in an interview that the Latino community is diverse, “unlike the African American community.” This came months after Biden went on The Breakfast Club and told Charlemagne tha God, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Considered separately, any single one of these offenses should be the nail in the coffin of a 2020 Presidential run; but when combined, they are an indictment of the work of the Twitterverse and liberal mainstream media who portend to be the woke torchbearers for social justice.
