Oops, Biden did it again. And no, unlike Britney Spears, this “oops” is a bit of a whopper, particularly given the Democrats’ laser beam focus on racial relations and microaggressions.
While Biden was caught in enough racialized whoppers while campaigning to become President, on the few occasions he was permitted to be let out of his basement that is, he just made a massive blunder as the President, which of course leads one to wonder how he was elected by millions more votes than Obama in the first place.
Particularly when he essentially claims that minorities do not know how to go online, as he just did.
“A lot of people don’t know how to register …
Not everybody in the community, in the Hispanic and the African-American community, particularly in rural areas that are distant and, or inner-city districts know how to use, know how to get online to determine how to get in line for that COVID vaccination at the Walgreens.” [Source: The Blaze]
Well, that’s just swell. African-Americans and Hispanics don’t know how to go online. That’s good to know. One also wonders how so many Americans are unfortunately on social media near-constantly, which also leads one to wonder where in the world Biden got these ideas.
Unless he’s had them for the past 50 years or so, that is.
Biden also went on to provide a truly bizarre response to questions on why Black Americans were presumably being vaccinated at lower rates than White Americans.
“There is some history of blacks being used as guinea pigs in other experiments, as I need not tell you, doctor, over the last 50 to 75 to 100 years in America, so there’s a concern about getting the vaccine whether it’s available or not … ut the biggest part of it is access, physical access.” [Source: The Blaze]
What? What on earth is that “guinea pigs” comment supposed to mean? Care to back up such an outrageous statement with any facts? And, by default, is Biden indirectly suggesting that White people should be guinea pigs instead? Seriously?
Someone redirect him to his teleprompter. Or, what if that wording actually IS on his teleprompter? Wouldn’t be surprising these days …
It especially wouldn’t be surprising when taking Biden’s previously racialized commentary into account. After all, who can forget his comments on “black women” in grocery stores during the pandemic?
“Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off. They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, ‘Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some black woman was able to stock the grocery shelf. Or I got a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.’” [Source: Breitbart]
Does Biden even realize how this statement sounds? First off, he implies black women have no education by suggesting stocking shelves is entirely within their domain. Secondly, he also provides greater praise of Hispanics, as apparently they are elevated into “first responders,” whereas Black people still stock shelves.
And the Republicans are “racist?” Wow ….
One might excuse a serious slip of a tongue once (well, unless you’re a college brat, that is), but Biden effectively, if not inadvertently, doubled down on his own apparent beliefs regarding race, which was rather clear when he talked about “White kids.”
“We should challenge these students, we should challenge students in these schools to have advanced placement programs in these schools … We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor you cannot do it, poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” [Source: Breitbart]
That’s interesting, Biden. Really encouraging commentary to minorities.
Hint: Schools need to be opened more than one day a week to “challenge students.”
Maybe focus on school re-openings first …
