Following the jury verdict that found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murdering George Floyd in May of last year, President Biden and Vice President Harris addressed the nation (why the Executive Branch needs to weigh in on the results of individual criminal cases is unclear).
During the televised address, both Biden and Harris disgustingly lied about the state of racism in America today, and their comments will further divide the country instead of unifying the nation like Joe Biden claims he is doing.
What Captain Unity means by “unity” is unifying behind Democrat beliefs, not around a common national identity or shared values.
The following is a portion of Biden’s lie-filled address to the nation:
“Today, a jury in Minnesota found former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd last May. It was a murder in the full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism the vice president just referred to. The systemic racism is a stain on our nation’s soul. The knee on the neck of justice for Black Americans. Profound fear and trauma. The pain, the exhaustion that Black and brown Americans experience every single day.
The murder of George Floyd launched a summer of protests we hadn’t seen since the civil rights era in the ’60s. Protests that unified people of every race and generation in peace and with purpose to say enough. Enough. Enough of the senseless killings.”
Biden went onto add that “most men and women who wear the badge serve their communities honorably.”
That is a contradictory statement given that Biden spent a large portion of his speech claiming that policing in America is systemically racist.
Both statements can’t be true at once: either policing is inherently racist, or it is not.
Sadly, there was a time when the police unfairly asserted control over black Americans to uphold segregationist policies, but statistics show that this isn’t the case anymore.
According to author Heather Macdonald, “The African American community tends to be policed more heavily because that is where people are disproportionately hurt by violent street crime. In New York City in 2018, 73% of shooting victims were Black, though Black residents comprise only 24% of the city’s population.”
In 2019, 14 unarmed blacks were killed by police compared to 25 unarmed whites.
It is true that black people are shot at a higher rate compared to white people even though more white people were shot and killed by police, but the sad truth is that black neighborhoods have higher instances of crime and police requests are higher in those neighborhoods.
Common sense dictates that the more police-civilian interactions there are, the higher the probability that a confrontation will lead to a shooting.
It is a sad fact, but it is one that needs to be addressed. There is an epidemic of shootings in the country, but it’s not cop-on-black, it’s black-on-black.
If Biden wants to call America racist, then maybe he should address his own history of racially ignorant statements…which is being kind to him. If Donald Trump had uttered any of the following statements as compiled by PJ Media, the media would be apoplectic:
“Biden has a decades-long record of opposition to busing and desegregation. And in 1977, during a congressional hearing on anti-busing legislation, Biden, who joined with segregationists in this fight, said he wanted to “ensure we do have orderly integration of society,” and pointed out he was “not just talking about education but all of society.”
Then he said, “Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point. We have got to make some move on this.”
Biden also had to defend remarks he made about his future running mate, first-term Senator Barack Obama. “You got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
“That’s one of the things that he finds was most in need when he was over there in Iraq for a year,” Biden said during remarks at the 40th anniversary of the Legal Services Corporation. “That people would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being … I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of, um, these women and men while overseas.”
During a campaign speech in Iowa hosted by the Asian & Latino Coalition, Joe Biden implied that poor kids are all non-white. “We should challenge students 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.”
Joe Biden and our so-called leaders continue to trash the country they are sworn to protect…but it is getting old.
A majority of Americans are proud of this country…if only they could be proud of their president.
