By any standard, especially by progressive Democratic standards, Joe Biden is a flaming mess. No Democrat of any age will have ever pulled the lever for a less attractive candidate. Compared to Joe, Hillary Clinton was JFK. Hillary actually had fans.
In March 2019, New York magazine pulled no punches in an article headlined, “Will Black Voters Still Love Biden When They Remember Who He Was?” Its lead paragraphs sums up a few of the reasons Democratic voters, especially blacks, would find it hard to cozy up to Biden come November:
“Joe Biden once called state-mandated school integration “the most racist concept you can come up with,” and Barack Obama “the first sort of mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean.” He was a staunch opponent of “forced busing” in the 1970s, and leading crusader for mass incarceration throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. Uncle Joe has described African-American felons as “predators” too sociopathic to rehabilitate.
Knowing his history, Biden’s vice-presidential pick, Kamala Harris, famously scorched him during a primary debate for opposing busing. Harris also raised the accusation anew that on at least two occasions Biden praised segregationists.
For all their talk about empowering women and minorities, leftists have used all their vast media, tech, and deep state power to sell America a corrupt old white guy of diminished mental capacity. To do this they have had to suppress the fact that — by any standards — Biden is a pedophile, a plagiarist, a liar, and a hypocrite, and — by the left’s standards — a racist, sexist, and warmonger as well as a credibly accused sexual predator.
