Old soup-for-brains Joe Biden has not had a particularly good week. The guy has jammed his foot into his mouth so much, he has athlete’s tongue. Fortunately for him, the establishment news media is happily taking on the role of his campaign’s Rapid Response Team.
I hope they’re up for the job because a Biden Rapid Response Team is going to be busier than a one-armed paper-hanger.
First there was Joe’s bizarre “are you a junkie?” reaction to a black journalist asking him if he’s taken a cognitive test.
Then yesterday Joe uttered another revealing remark that shows just what a low opinion he has of blacks. And it is entirely consistent with his previous statement that “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
The stereotype Joe lives by is All Blacks are Exactly the Same … with a few notable exceptions.
Listen for yourself.
No wonder he thinks all blacks should automatically vote for him.
That “you ain’t black” comment wasn’t a one-off. This is his stereotype of blacks, and he’s sticking to it come hell or high water.
Fortunately for Joe, the establishment media, acting as the Biden Rapid Response Team, came to his rescue.
There was Washington Post “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler:
Um, I listened to the audio, Mr. “Fact-checker.” Unless you want me to disbelieve my lying ears, I know exactly what he said.
NYT reporter and clean-up hitter Maggie Haberman joined in:
“Gaffes?” Those aren’t gaffes. That’s just Joe Biden unfiltered.
Joining in to spin was the AP’s White House correspondent Zeke Miller:
Biden Rapid Response Team member “Morning Joe” explained “Biden made that argument inartfully. He didn’t need to include the African-American community in the discussion, but he does seem to recognize the Latino community is not one giant monolithic community.”
Ah, yes. It was just “inartful” stereotyping.
Or, as Politico put it, Biden simply “contrasted” black and Latino communities.
And, finally, ABC World News Tonight, clearly another member of the Biden Rapid Response Team spins Biden’s bigoted statement as “appearing to suggest most African Americans are uniform in their views.”
Yes, it just appears that he said blacks lack the diversity found in Latino communities.
It’s almost pointless to say this, but imagine if President Trump said what Joe Biden says in that clip.
Imagine the hue and cry that would erupt from these same supposed “news” outlets that are now acting as the Biden Rapid Response Team.
They wouldn’t be bending over backwards to explain it away, would they?
Not even a little.
And despite the all-hands-on-deck rapid response from the Mainstream News Media, clearly the Biden campaign realized that once again their racist candidate showed his true colors. So last night, a campaign staffer logged on to Joe’s Twitter account to “explain” what Joe meant.
“In no way did I mean to suggest the African American community is a monolith.” Really? Then what in the name of Sweet Fancy Moses did Joe mean to suggest?
Call me crazy, but to me it sounds like Joe was suggesting that unlike the black community, with a few notable exceptions, the Hispanic community is diverse.
“Unlike the African American community.”
And what is the antonym for “diverse?” Well, “uniform” for one.
And what is a synonym for “monolithic?” Well, “uniform” for one.
Sounds to me Joe was more than “suggesting” that blacks, because they lack diversity, are monolithic.
Throughout my career I've witnessed the diversity of thought, background, and sentiment within the African American community. It's this diversity that makes our workplaces, communities, and country a better place.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 7, 2020
Yes, you have witnessed it, Joe. And your response was to get angry and say “You ain’t black!”
But if Joe actually does believe the black community is diverse, then perhaps saying they aren’t diverse isn’t the best way to show that.
My commitment to you is this: I will always listen, I will never stop fighting for the African American community and I will never stop fighting for a more equitable future.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) August 7, 2020
Sure, Joe’s campaign staffer; whatever you say.
I wonder how many members of Joe’s campaign team it took to compose those three tweets? Given the length of time between the release of that clip and the release of these tweets, I’m thinking there were a few drafts that got emailed around, then tweaked and rewritten by committee before the staffer who actually tweeted it sent them out.
Which, if you recall from the WikiLeaks Podesta emails, is exactly how Team Clinton composed Hillary’s tweets.
The mental roadblocks that kept Biden’s bigotry from regularly oozing to the surface have clearly been eaten away by whatever is turning his brain to soup.
And the only thing that keeps his campaign remotely viable is having the entire “unbiased, objective” “news” media actively working on behalf of his campaign.
This is why they don’t want Biden to debate Trump. They cannot risk one of these hideously bigoted comments being heard on live TV by tens of millions of voters. Because even with the entire establishment news media serving as the Biden Rapid Response Team, there would be no way in hell they could spin it away.
