Former Vice President Joe Biden vowed Saturday to “rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country” in a Fourth of July message that contrasted sharply with President Trump’s warning at a Mt. Rushmore fireworks display that “angry mobs” at protests against racism were assaulting America’s history and culture. …
… “We have a chance now to give the marginalized, the demonized, the isolated, the oppressed, a full share of the American dream.”
Biden’s remarks came hours after Trump told a crowd of mainly white supporters Friday night at Mt. Rushmore that America was facing a growing danger from anti-racism protesters’ “merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children.” He accused them of promoting what he labeled a “new far-left fascism.”
Biden said he would restore democratic values in part by reversing Trump’s “cruel and counterproductive” immigration policies, including the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexican border.
He also vowed to eradicate “systemic racism from every area of society it infects — from unfairly administered COVID-19 recovery funds, to laws that perpetuate racial wealth gaps, to health disparities, to housing policy, to policing, to our justice system and everywhere in between.”
The Democrats demand equity … the equity you’ve built in your home, to be precise.
On the other hand, it can be reassuring to say: Oh, this is just some new rhetoric that Good Old Joe’s speechwriters have fed him to sound with-it. But of course Old Joe doesn’t really want to ruin your property values, look at his track record back in the 1970s! So we can be sure that he’ll spend his every waking minute through age 86 going over each line item that his thousands of staffers propose with a very sharp pencil to make sure that, whatever verbiage he’s spouting, middle class white homeowners aren’t plundered. He’ll be our President Hindenburg keeping the crazies under firm control.
