One problem with being as old as Joe Biden is that you remember what words used to mean, not what they mean today. When Joe was building his vocabulary, “diverse” meant “showing a great deal of variety.”

So, Joe thinks, Hispanics are really diverse: some arrived in the U.S. yesterday, some have had ancestors in New Mexico for 400 years; some are white, some black, some that other thing; some speak only Spanish, some speak only English. In contrast, African Americans (with the exception of immigrant blacks) have a pretty homogeneous culture. Ergo, in the U.S., Hispanics are more diverse than blacks on the whole.

Poor Joe doesn’t grasp that “diverse” doesn’t mean variety anymore, it means holiness. And blacks are the holiest in the new religion of “Black is best and white is worst.” So of course blacks aren’t going to put up with Joe saying they are less diverse than Hispanics.

At the moment, the media won’t give any fuel to Joe’s regular Kinsley Gaffes in which he blurts out various truths for fear of helping Trump. But what is Biden’s life going to be like if he beats Trump and becomes America’s number one Cishet White Male?

    How close is Joe to Poodle Beach? Like chocolate cities, it's probably exempt from social distancing hectoring, not to mention enforcement.


    Rehoboth Beach is also known as one of the mid-Atlantic coast's popular LGBT-friendly getaways because of the large number of LGBT-owned and operated businesses and because of the LGBT-frequented stretch of beach near Queen Street at the south end of the boardwalk, known as Poodle Beach. Poodle Beach attracts gay men while North Shore Beach within Cape Henlopen State Park attracts lesbian women.

    @Peterike

    The irony is that what Biden said about about "diversity" and blacks and "Latinos"/"Hispanics" -speaking for and by himself during an interview and referring to political and cultural as opposed to racial diversity or variety- is true. 90-75% of blacks vote democratic, as opposed to 60-70% of "Hispanics," for example. Politically and culturally, the "African-American community" is monolithic and conformists, with "notable exceptions," as Biden noted, such as Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Candace Owens, and a few other exceptions, who are despised and vilified and ostracized as "uncle Toms," race traitors, "house niggers," and the like. And all of these exceptions, notable or not, are race denialists. Not one of them is a race-realists. And has even one NFL or NBA black player decried and rejected the lies and delusions of BLM? And so on and so on.

    In contrast, Biden's apology -obviously written by his strategists- is blatantly untrue and execrably dishonest. The presence of 40 million blacks and their "diversity" has more than anything else made "our workplaces, communities, and country a better place"! Anyone who believe that is either a liar or psychotic, totally delusional, completely estranged from objective reality, impervious to facts.

    I'm not so sure.

    This will decided by power politics. The advisors around Biden will want to keep Biden in power, as they'll be free to exercise power. But they'll have to stay unified, because if a majority of the cabinet defects ... then the VP is in.

    But they'll be a lot of outside influences on almost everyone involved--including various cabinet secretaries-- because it will be in the interest of all those with presidential ambitions, to *not* have the VP become president and lock up the 2024 nomination.

    If i was Biden, i'd just announce that "I'm only serving one term to clean up the destruction caused by Donald Trump and allow our nation to heal and unify ... blah ... blah ... blah." No one in their right mind believes Joe should be starting a 2nd term at 82. So just say it and let people feel like it is less "electing Joe" than "removing Donald".

    (I still think Trump can pull--and should be able to--pull this out. BLM riots and Democrat party hostility to the rule-of-law should be easy to run against. But Trump needs to get better, tougher.)

    Disagree with me on this, but not only is Mr. Biden the Democrats' answer to Mr. Trump, Ol' Joe Biden is their counterpart to the Donald, Bizarro Donald, if you will consider this metaphor.

    The Left latches on to Trump's gaffes; the Right does the same with Biden. Two old, pale, stale males. Two white men in hair-loss denial.

    Biden is Trump Lite, everything you ever wanted in an American president and less. Biden is Diet Trump. Tastes the same as regular Trump on the first sip if sufficiently chilled but with that strange aftertaste.

  12. Part of what has driven the Democrat/Deep State/Elite freak-out that led them to unleash the long-planned BLM/Antifa street violence option is the realization that President Trump has made significant inroads into the black community in terms of support and respect.

    The Wizards of Oz are not very strong or intimidating with out their shock troops, human shields and pawns. Internal polling was showing that black Americans were wising up to the cynical tricks and games of the Democrats and the left and starting to appreciate Trump’s America First policies including rising wages and declining unemployment before the Corona/Floyd program was unleashed.

Or he may just step aside, LBJ-style, rather than run for re-election. I’m quite sure that he’ll leave office unpopular, and this will give an opening for a more presentable GOP candidate who can pull of an establishment-Trumpist synthesis.

    Biden may win the election , but it is difficult to see him being sworn into office next year. The VP will be sworn in after Biden steps aside in December. The electoral college members will be told to vote for Harris or Rice when they meet on December 14, 2020

    Biden May have a 51% chance of winning in November , but I give him a 10% chance the electoral college will vote for Biden. He may have had a few strokes already , another minor stroke will be enough to get him to step aside for his black female VP

    I live in a small coastal Whitopia city in Southern California, where 95+% of the people are White or Asian and small three bedroom houses sell for $1.5M. In my circle of neighbors I would estimate from the lawn signs that 2/3 to 3/4 are voting for Biden. It is not because they are enthused by the guy, it isn’t even only because of Trump, it’s just as much virtue signaling. Most of them are relatively young and have had modern conditioning from college. Until the Covid their children used to come home from school expecting their parents to believe the same stuff kids are taught these days.

    However, instead of putting up Biden lawn signs the way they put up Clinton signs in 2016, almost every house on the street except mine and the ones with Asian families have this sign up instead:

    I've never hated Biden in the way I've come to hate some of his contemporaries. Always considered him your standard issue Watergate baby grifter, nothing worse. And he did an admirable job as VP in trying to offset the Middle East regime change fantasists in the White House, with Obama winding toward his camp when it became clear what a disaster the Libyan and Syrian policies were becoming. His 2007 proposal on to divvy up Iraq was pretty good: nothing was going to make Iraq a happy place, but that would have made it a less homicidal one. Not to say I liked everything about his FP stances, but credit where it is do.

    But it's very clear that like Trump, he's just not mentally fit for such an office anymore and is going to be dominated by whoever is around him. Given the current ideological mood amongst the Democratic Party and its allies, that's very dangerous, doubly so given the current situation with China. America doesn't really have any good options here: on one hand, Biden winning might get Antifa off the streets temporarily, but on the other hand, I really don't want the people who have learned nothing from the pandemic on the dangers of unthinking globalization completely ascendant again.

    Biden’s VP will be the real president within a year...
     
    Harrison I and Garfield died within their first year. So did FDR and Lincoln, in subsequent terms. Here are two, albeit losers, who died shortly after or before Election Day:

    Grant easily defeated Greeley in the election, winning 56 percent of the popular vote. The crushing defeat, combined with his wife's death, plummeted Greeley into deep despair. Within a matter of weeks, his mental and physical health declined greatly. He died in New York City on November 29, 1872, less than a month after the election.

    https://www.encyclopedia.com/people/history/us-history-biographies/horace-greeley

     

    This was the biggest switch of electoral votes ever, unsurprisingly. All but three of Greeley's voted for someone else. Those three were not counted.

    Diagnosed with Bright's disease in 1904, [VP James Schoolcraft] Sherman's health was failing by the time of the 1912 campaign. Less than a week before the election, he died at home in Utica, six days after his 57th birthday, and President Taft was left with no running mate, although Nicholas Murray Butler was designated to receive the electoral votes that Sherman would have received. Taft and Butler came in third place in the election, carrying only eight electoral votes from Utah and Vermont... The vice presidency remained vacant until [Thomas] Marshall's inauguration on March 4, 1913.

    A well thought out comment, but it’s foundational premise; that Biden will serve out his term, is bordering on preposterous. Joe will be quickly jettisoned as the MSM suddenly “discovers” that there is an issue with his mind. He is simply a Trojan Horse.

    If I were advising a likely Biden VP pick I'd tell her to think long and hard about whether she really wants to spend 4-8 years as his underling and have her reputation inextricably yoked to his. Biden was never popular even within his own party; he was a compromise candidate in a crowded field and both the establishment and the insurgents were immensely disappointed by his victory (and still are; I think a lot of the "George Floyd" rioting is in a deeper sense pro-Bernie rioting).

    I agree , the rioters are certainly not Biden supporters.

    Biden may win the election , but it is difficult to see him being sworn into office next year. The VP will be sworn in after Biden steps aside in December. The electoral college members will be told to vote for Harris or Rice when they meet on December 14, 2020

    Biden May have a 51% chance of winning in November , but I give him a 10% chance the electoral college will vote for Biden. He may have had a few strokes already , another minor stroke will be enough to get him to step aside for his black female VP

    Biden’s VP will be the real president within a year…

    Harrison I and Garfield died within their first year. So did FDR and Lincoln, in subsequent terms. Here are two, albeit losers, who died shortly after or before Election Day:

    Grant easily defeated Greeley in the election, winning 56 percent of the popular vote. The crushing defeat, combined with his wife’s death, plummeted Greeley into deep despair. Within a matter of weeks, his mental and physical health declined greatly. He died in New York City on November 29, 1872, less than a month after the election.

    https://www.encyclopedia.com/people/history/us-history-biographies/horace-greeley

    This was the biggest switch of electoral votes ever, unsurprisingly. All but three of Greeley’s voted for someone else. Those three were not counted.

    Diagnosed with Bright’s disease in 1904, [VP James Schoolcraft] Sherman’s health was failing by the time of the 1912 campaign. Less than a week before the election, he died at home in Utica, six days after his 57th birthday, and President Taft was left with no running mate, although Nicholas Murray Butler was designated to receive the electoral votes that Sherman would have received. Taft and Butler came in third place in the election, carrying only eight electoral votes from Utah and Vermont… The vice presidency remained vacant until [Thomas] Marshall’s inauguration on March 4, 1913.

    I have a theory that Joe Biden doesn't really want the presidency. He keeps sabotaging himself on the campaign trail, and he's been doing it for 32 years now. He started running in 1988. Yet he's been able to get elected to the senate from Delaware, so he's not totally incompetent at the job of running a campaign.

    I think he knows he's fated to lose (32 years of failure should have taught him that), and he just likes the attention of the media and the crowds.

The irony of this is that Biden is exactly right, although part of that is because the way we define “Hispanic” is retarded: an Argentinian of fully Southern European extraction and an indio from Guatemala both speak Spanish. They share nothing else in common. Even if we limit the conversation to just Mexico, Mexico had non-trivial waves of European immigration come and alter the gene pool, leading to social stratification based on race that makes the US look tame.

    Blacks in the US are really their own, deeply American thing, with their own largely homogeneous culture. Actual Africans from Africa invariably comment on how alien American blacks are to them.

    How could Hawaii be the most diverse state in America, it is only 2.5% black!

    But how could he know how black Hawaii is without knowing the demographics and if you type demographics Hawaii into Google the first thing that pops up is the pie chart showing it is the most diverse state, even with so few blacks, even the statement that it is the most diverse state will show up.

    So how did he not know this but knew exactly how black Hawaii was? Because he was obviously exposed to a map of the US by how black each state was since it was of upmost importance to her primary campaign.

Vietnam was an ideological civil war between two governments that essentially had the same idea for their country, but differed on the best model to use for it. Iraq was a communally divided society kept together by a strongman where the different groups identified each other as... well, not them. Same with Syria.

    I’m not so sure.

    This will decided by power politics. The advisors around Biden will want to keep Biden in power, as they’ll be free to exercise power. But they’ll have to stay unified, because if a majority of the cabinet defects … then the VP is in.

    But they’ll be a lot of outside influences on almost everyone involved–including various cabinet secretaries– because it will be in the interest of all those with presidential ambitions, to *not* have the VP become president and lock up the 2024 nomination.

    If i was Biden, i’d just announce that “I’m only serving one term to clean up the destruction caused by Donald Trump and allow our nation to heal and unify … blah … blah … blah.” No one in their right mind believes Joe should be starting a 2nd term at 82. So just say it and let people feel like it is less “electing Joe” than “removing Donald”.

    (I still think Trump can pull–and should be able to–pull this out. BLM riots and Democrat party hostility to the rule-of-law should be easy to run against. But Trump needs to get better, tougher.)

    The irony is that what Biden said about about “diversity” and blacks and “Latinos”/”Hispanics” -speaking for and by himself during an interview and referring to political and cultural as opposed to racial diversity or variety- is true. 90-75% of blacks vote democratic, as opposed to 60-70% of “Hispanics,” for example. Politically and culturally, the “African-American community” is monolithic and conformists, with “notable exceptions,” as Biden noted, such as Clarence Thomas, Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder, Candace Owens, and a few other exceptions, who are despised and vilified and ostracized as “uncle Toms,” race traitors, “house niggers,” and the like. And all of these exceptions, notable or not, are race denialists. Not one of them is a race-realists. And has even one NFL or NBA black player decried and rejected the lies and delusions of BLM? And so on and so on.

    In contrast, Biden’s apology -obviously written by his strategists- is blatantly untrue and execrably dishonest. The presence of 40 million blacks and their “diversity” has more than anything else made “our workplaces, communities, and country a better place”! Anyone who believe that is either a liar or psychotic, totally delusional, completely estranged from objective reality, impervious to facts.

  60. Joe Biden hides in his basement during a pandemic. George Washington led his troops during a smallpox outbreak.

    When George Washington took command of the Continental Army in 1775, America was fighting a war on two fronts: one for independence from the British, and a second for survival against smallpox. Because Washington knew the ravages of the disease firsthand, he understood that the smallpox virus, then an invisible enemy, could cripple his army and end the war before it began.

    That’s why Washington eventually made the bold decision to inoculate all American troops who had never been sickened with smallpox at a time when inoculation was a crude and often deadly process. His gamble paid off. The measure staved off smallpox long enough to win a years-long fight with the British. In the process, Washington pulled off the first massive, state-funded immunization campaign in American history.

    I live in a small coastal Whitopia city in Southern California, where 95+% of the people are White or Asian and small three bedroom houses sell for $1.5M. In my circle of neighbors I would estimate from the lawn signs that 2/3 to 3/4 are voting for Biden. It is not because they are enthused by the guy, it isn’t even only because of Trump, it’s just as much virtue signaling. Most of them are relatively young and have had modern conditioning from college. Until the Covid their children used to come home from school expecting their parents to believe the same stuff kids are taught these days.

    However, instead of putting up Biden lawn signs the way they put up Clinton signs in 2016, almost every house on the street except mine and the ones with Asian families have this sign up instead:

    They aren’t going to be voting for Biden, they are going to be voting for his Black running mate.

    We have a fair amount of these signs in Berserkeley but since the martyrdom of St. George of the Faux Twenty they’re outnumbered by BLM signs.

  63. Biden Points Out African-Americans Are Less Diverse Than Hispanics

    No one has pointed out that the above is a false comparison.

    Unlike african or european americans, hispanics are not a race. They are a linguistic and geographical category: spanish speakers of the Americas. They can be afro, indio, euro or any combination thereof.

    The "black community" has not given us anything of any value; they are a great worthless drag on us. They would be the prime example of addition by subtraction.

    Weird. I live on the Gulf Coast and have seen those signs in some of the wealthier neighborhoods around here.

    If you’re smart enough to make all of that money, why display a set of kindergarten cliches?

    Who’s printing these signs? Where do you get them? I see another poster has also reported seeing them.

    Intelligence does not signifies attachment to reality over ideology. If anything, the absolute worst ideologies in human history had intelligentsia and demi-intelligentsia (and what were Stalin, Mao, Mussolini and Hitler if not demi-intellectuals?) as their most enthusiastic supporters. Taking the two single nastiest examples of all, 3 out of the 4 Einsatzgruppen commanders held doctorates, as did the majority of participants at the Wannsee Conference, and the closest we've ever come to a government dominated by intellectuals were the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia.

    I've said this before: if you have an IQ of 95, you are less likely to genuinely buy abstract ideological ideals *if* they directly contradict your daily, empirical lived reality. But you also lack the ability to voice your incredulity in a way that doesn't leave you open to mockery by cognitive superiors, and generally the interest, hence the lack of push back. I'm willing to bet most of the idiots on the street do not have sub-100 IQs. They aren't geniuses, or even notably above average, but social misfits in the exact wrong place to be in the modern economy with wealthy parents that can keep them afloat.

    There is a sizable print-on-demand industry one can upload designs to and have them printed in quantity with next-day delivery possible in some cases.

    Look, here's a black RN with her own pop-up storefront that is dependent on print-on-demand drop-shipping and outsourced payment processing:

    I bet she's making a nice side income with very little effort on her part.

    These signs have been extremely popular in my small blue town every since Trump’s election. They may have actually been part of my red-pilling as the smug platitudes make me feel nauseous every time I see one (which is at least a few times a week).

    I’m surprised to hear that it may only now be becoming ubiquitous elsewhere.

    2007?? Fuck that!! I was arguing for a divvied up Iraq on the old neocon Tacitus blog before we even invaded.

    Look at it relatively: Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush never got the memo that compulsive regime change in complex multi-ethnic societies we don’t understand well isn’t a very bright idea.

    FYI, I always thought the Vietnam comparison was a very bad one: Yugoslavia was the real template for Iraq. Vietnam was an ideological civil war between two governments that essentially had the same idea for their country, but differed on the best model to use for it. Iraq was a communally divided society kept together by a strongman where the different groups identified each other as… well, not them. Same with Syria.
