Biden Blows Veterans Address With Ultimate Gaffe
Just when you think Biden’s gaffes couldn’t get any worse, he comes out with an epic doozy.
And this one occurred during a Veterans Address, of all places.
This particular doozy is especially damaging in the context of Biden’s earlier comments in the week, which have been widely panned as condescending towards the American public.
For instance, during a speech at the Port of Baltimore, Biden dismissed very legitimate concerns about the economy in favor of lecturing everyone on their apparent ignorance with regards to how supply chains work.
“You hear a lot about the supply chain in the news, but frankly, not a lot of people have a clear understanding, whether they have a Ph.D. or they didn’t go to school, about how a supply chain works …
Supply chains are incredibly complex. As long as goods and materials are getting where they need to go on time, there’s usually no need to worry about the supply chains. But, well, disruptions hit — like a pandemic.” [Source: Washington Examiner]
Actually, the main “disruption” was Biden’s entry to the Oval Office in January, but Biden will rarely let a little thing like reality cloud a good story.
And speaking of a good story, for some bizarre reason, Biden decided to ramble on about baseball during an address in Arlington Cemetery.
While it is completely unclear why Biden opted to talk about baseball, what is completely clear is Biden’s massive gaffe … especially since this gaffe, like a few others, is rather racialized in nature.
Just consider Biden’s statements below.
“I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time, pitcher of the Negro leagues, who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros — in Major League Baseball — after Jackie Robinson. His name was Satchel Paige.” [Source: Fox News]
Good to know that Biden considers Major League Baseball to be the equivalent to the “Negro Leagues,” as directly stated by Biden himself.
Not to mention his reference to “the great negro at that time,” whatever that is supposed to mean.
In fact, this particular gaffe just might be worse than his more notorious one to date, namely when he weighed in on minorities that voted for Trump.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” [Source: The Daily Wire]
While that quote has not aged well with more than one person, Biden’s most recent doozy on the public stage, particularly during a Veterans Day address, is especially remarkable.
Even more remarkably, while Biden made the “you ain’t black” comment as a presidential candidate, he has now made “the great negro” comment as an actual sitting president.
Even more ironically, Biden’s reference to “negro” breaks one of the laws passed by none other than Barack Obama when he was (frightfully) in charge of the nation.
Specifically, Obama signed H.R. 4238 into law, which openly bans the use of the term “negro” by the federal government.
“Section 211(f)(1) of the Department of Energy Organization Act (42 U.S.C. 7141(f)(1)) is amended by striking ‘a Negro, Puerto Rican, American Indian, Eskimo, Oriental, or Aleut or is a Spanish speaking individual of Spanish descent’ and inserting ‘Asian American, Native Hawaiian, a Pacific Islander, African American, Hispanic, Puerto Rican, Native American, or an Alaska Native.’” [Source: CNN]
Looks like Biden missed that memo as well, given his amusing performance at Arlington.
If anything, Biden’s “negro” remarks will probably just serve as incentive for BLM to threaten to loot and riot again – After all, holidays are just around the corner.
BLM is already threatening to loot, riot, and apparently cause arson … all because New York City’s new mayor has vowed to reinstall the desperately needed anti-crime unit.
Hawk Newsome, who “serves” as the Head of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, apparently decided that it was appropriate to openly threaten the city with “fire and bloodshed,” which underscores exactly why the anti-crime unit remains necessary.
“If he thinks that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again. There will be riots, there will be fire and there will be bloodshed because we believe in defending our people.” [Source: Fox News]
Well, since BLM-endorsed Biden is apparently going back to “old ways” of speaking about race, seems like the NYPD can go back to “old ways” of policing … the difference is that the latter is actually necessary for society.
