During a CNN town hall Tuesday night, Joe Biden not only got fact-checked by CNN for four false claims, but he also blamed those sworn to protect for the apparent ‘rise’ in white supremacy.
He started out by talking about why he got his job in politics, claiming it was to get rid of White Supremacy and the KKK.
“It is complex, it’s wide-ranging and it’s real. You may — I got involved in politics to begin with because of civil rights and opposition to white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan,” Biden said. This is really funny, considering Joe Biden is probably one of the most outright racist politicians able to get away with his ignorance.
Need a reminder? How about not wanting to make classrooms ‘racial jungle gyms’? What about his statement saying that ‘poor kids are just as bright as white kids’?
Or the time where he asked a black reporter, “you’re taking cocaine or not? … Are you a junkie?”
Here is my favorite: During an interview with NPR, he told the Latina reporter (Lulu Garcia-Navarro), “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
Just a few examples to freshen your mind! See how thoughtful I am?
Anyways, here is what Biden had to say last night: “And you see what’s happening — and the studies that are beginning to be done, maybe at your university as well — about the impact of former military, former police officers, on the growth of white supremacy in some of these groups,” he said.
Wow. Way to go, Joe! Dividing the country as usual. At least he is consistent….
