Biden vows to uproot systemic racism in Fourth of July message

By MICHAEL FINNEGANS TAFF WRITER
JULY 4, 20206 PM

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.

  1. The only way to ripe the roots of systemic and structural racism out of this country is to destroy the Democrat party and its ideology. Equity is a dishonest ruse to gull the hapless, half-attentive, the half-wits into the leftist Ponzi scheme they float now.

    The only way to eradicate "systemic racism from every area of society" i.e., inequality in all areas and aspects of life between the races, especially disparities between whites and blacks in wealth, poverty, incarceration rates, etc., and criticizing and telling the truth about race and innate racial group differences, especially average black intelligence, black criminality, especially black-on-white violence-is to create a one-party left-wing dictatorship, an anti-white, pro black, pro-"Hispanic" totalitarian dystopia that controls all areas and aspects of life to impose equality between the races by a massive and punitive redistribution of wealth from whites and "east Asian" to blacks and Mestizos-Amerindians, and to abolish freedom of speech by not only censoring but criminalizing "hate speech," i.e., criticizing and telling the truth about sacred minorities, Mestizos-Amerindians, and especially blacks.

    "Uncle Joe's" puppet masters know this but their puppet is too senile and obtuse and simple-minded to understand what his words entail.

    Could there be clearer evidence for my call for "separate nations"? (Ok, there probably could, but this is pretty clear.)

    Since when is it the business of the American government to go around on some sort of totalitarian crusade, boring into every American's life in search of racism like a termite--with predictable results?

    In fact, this is specifically what American republican federalism along with our Bill of Rights is supposed to prevent. American citizens are supposed to be in control of their government
    --to do only the limited activities governments need to do
    --with only local governments, most closely responsive to the local people and attuned to their attitudes and culture involved directly with the people
    --with the national government dealing only with a few select national and foreign (defense) issues
    --with the Bill of Rights protecting individuals and their private affairs from precisely this sort of government bullying.

    Biden's call isn't "American" it is anti-American. 200 proof minoritarianism--an evil ideology hostile to the principles of republican federal limited government and traditional Anglo-Saxon liberties upon which America was founded.

    Separate nations--Americans and Rainbows ... let us go our separate ways in peace.

    COVID has been almost non-existent in sub-Saharan Africa so far. Considering that there are something like one billion SS Africans and only 40 million African Americans, that makes it very hard to argue that blacks are more genetically prone to the virus than other racial groups. Even though blacks are the hardest hit racial group in America, they’re the least hit worldwide.

    TBH, I wonder if blacks actually might be genetically less prune to the virus than other race groups. And that since the behavior of African Americans is so bad, they get hit harder with the virus than any other American group, despite their genes.

    “Systemic Racism” is essential White magic or voodoo, seen from the very childish perspective of blacks.

    When you are an ignorant people, prone to all types of bizarre superstitions, and all legal barriers to your flourishing are removed and yet you as a people still fail, then the only explanation is invisible curses and spells and magic. You can’t see or touch or even provide a good description of “Systemic Racism”, because it is magic, evil White magic.

    And the only way to fight magic is with stronger magic, or failing that...

    The "marginalized, the demonized, the isolated, the oppressed" -is he referring to the dissident-alternative right and, to a lesser degree, tens of millions of whites who voted for Trump, Hillary's "basket of deplorables and irredeemables," demonized as "racists," "bigots," "haters," xenophobes," "Islamophobes," the litany of ists/isms and phobes/phobias?

    But instead of denouncing Biden for denouncing "systemic racism," many in the Republican-conservative establishment, most egregiously the virtue-signally and self-righteous blowhard, Sean Hannity, are obsessed with proving that Biden is the "real racist" for telling the truth about black crime and criminals long ago and enacting laws and policies that imprisoned more violent recidivist black criminals and thus reduced the black crime rate significantly -laws and policies for which Biden is now apologizing for and groveling and debasing himself to pander to blacks and white leftists and to hopefully be elected president.

    You're getting warm. You are only one step away from the Leftist analysis. There is never a genetic explanation, only a behavioral one. The added step in Leftist analysis is that since blacks have no agency (only white people have agency) , whatever happens to them is caused by "racism". There is no such thing as "bad behavior" by blacks. If a tree blows down in a storm and flattens your car, do we say that the tree had "bad behavior"? Racism is like the luminiferous aether of sociology.

    Covid is practically nonexistent everywhere except as a mild substitute flu killing mostly the same people that the flu normally does (which is to say, people already dying from something else).

    Africans don’t know enough or have time preference low enough to be panicked about something intangible that people say may happen to them someday, they don’t have sophisticated communication networks to convince them to panic, and their governments don’t even presume to be organized enough to exert a technocratic western level of control. The economy can’t really crash because people are already unemployed and unproductive, capital is already misallocated, and the continent is basically already on welfare. Infrastructure that never existed can hardly be “overwhelmed” and when you never test you can’t generate the meaningless “case counters” that so worry timid women here.

    When it comes to corona - ignorance really is bliss.

  13. During the primaries last year, Biden more than once said “systematic racism” when he meant systemic.

    Isn’t the only systemic racism the deck stacked against white males when it comes to college admissions, awarding of scholarships, employment opportunities and career advancement? That’s about the only racism one can identify in the system.

In Cordero's case it's even sadder in that he did not have a mercifully swift death but was tortured by our medical system for 3 months, long after there was any realistic hope of recovery for him. God only knows how many millions his medical bill was.

    Cordero was the exception that proves the rule. His death does not change the fact that the vast majority of Covid deaths are of the elderly and those with co-morbidities.

    JSOM, Steve--a warrior for sanity--hardly needs to have "credibility" from a complete bozo like you.

    Masks are goodness in dealing with any respiratory disease. In fact, dealing with any crap you don't want to get into your lungs. I've been using masks for sawing, sanding, painting, staining, PVC gluing, bug spraying for years. I bought one of these 3M 7502 silicon mask a few years back for another round of staining my cedar decks (don't get a cedar deck!) with organic filter ... one of the best damn products i've ever had. I've worn the cheapo "surgical" masks on planes for a few years to not breathe other people's coughs and assorted crap.

    This is not rocket science. Don't want some shit into your lungs ... mask up to help keep it out.
    I even use eye protection too! Crazy!

    And yeah, it's good to keep the Xi Jinping out of your lungs--particularly if you're old. It ain't smallpox or even the 1918 flu, but it's worse than any flu during my life and goodness to skip. You figure you're young and want to get it--knock yourself out. But to contain a epidemic that will kick a lot of old peoples' asses, masks make sense.

    If we'd had a CDC worth a shit, they'd have advised Trump to slap a quarantine on China immediately upon news of the outbreak, then close the borders completely. And they'd have had masks stockpiled and rolling out. We wouldn't have had any significant epidemic. We wouldn't have blown up huge sectors of our economy.

    A healthy nation is sanely *empirical*. Doesn't cook up nonsense like "diversity is our strength" or "nation of immigrants". It doesn't cater to minorities obsessions.
    Nor cater to some whiny nitwit's mask-ulinity insecurity.

The BLM and antifa-type nutcases are Hitler and the last white man in the office of President, Joe Biden is like Hindenburg. He’ll have no real power if he gets in office. The Commies will have the real power. Interestingly, they are dealing with a heavily armed population this time. That shouldn’t be a problem, right?

    You're assuming they have enough collective thought about what they eat here, which they don't. They just eat whatever is put in front of them and is most convenient and sugary or "tasty" in the way blacks think of things as such. Which is why they think "unseasoned chicken" is a funny "insult" about whites, because they have such an unrefined palette that they need to use a ton of spices, salt and whatever else on everything they eat.

    So when they are redistributed your money to make themselves obese by eating garbage, and get diabetes or have huge block parties where they spread these diseases to each other at massive rates despite lower risk of contracting it, somehow it's your fault even though the actual people in control of the system (not whites) do nothing about any of this and would in fact call intervening "white supremacy" or "systemic racism."

    The game takes place in 1912. Social Darwinism is all the rage. A dude named Comstock makes a religious/eugenics cult city in the sky named Columbia.

    They have some problematic views on race to say the least...

    Of course this paradise has a lot of blacks and Irish doing the nasty work. Daisy is the revolutionary leader of the “Vox Populi“ a communist themed movement.

    I won’t spoil it (much) but she said the “root ripping” phrase just before attempting to kill a white child.

    I bring it up because it sounds like Biden is looking for a Daisy Fitzroy as his VP.

    The only way to ripe the roots of systemic and structural racism out of this country is to destroy the Democrat party and its ideology. Equity is a dishonest ruse to gull the hapless, half-attentive, the half-wits into the leftist Ponzi scheme they float now.

    The only way to eradicate “systemic racism from every area of society” i.e., inequality in all areas and aspects of life between the races, especially disparities between whites and blacks in wealth, poverty, incarceration rates, etc., and criticizing and telling the truth about race and innate racial group differences, especially average black intelligence, black criminality, especially black-on-white violence-is to create a one-party left-wing dictatorship, an anti-white, pro black, pro-“Hispanic” totalitarian dystopia that controls all areas and aspects of life to impose equality between the races by a massive and punitive redistribution of wealth from whites and “east Asian” to blacks and Mestizos-Amerindians, and to abolish freedom of speech by not only censoring but criminalizing “hate speech,” i.e., criticizing and telling the truth about sacred minorities, Mestizos-Amerindians, and especially blacks.

    COVID has been almost non-existent in sub-Saharan Africa so far. Considering that there are something like one billion SS Africans and only 40 million African Americans, that makes it very hard to argue that blacks are more genetically prone to the virus than other racial groups. Even though blacks are the hardest hit racial group in America, they’re the least hit worldwide.

    TBH, I wonder if blacks actually might be genetically less prune to the virus than other race groups. And that since the behavior of African Americans is so bad, they get hit harder with the virus than any other American group, despite their genes.

    Political sense of "reformist" (via notion of "change from the roots") is first recorded 1802 (n.), 1817 (adj.), of the extreme section of the British Liberal party (radical reform had been a current phrase since 1786);

    But instead of denouncing Biden for denouncing “systemic racism,” many in the Republican-conservative establishment, most egregiously the virtue-signally and self-righteous blowhard, Sean Hannity, are obsessed with proving that Biden is the “real racist” for telling the truth about black crime and criminals long ago and enacting laws and policies that imprisoned more violent recidivist black criminals and thus reduced the black crime rate significantly -laws and policies for which Biden is now apologizing for and groveling and debasing himself to pander to blacks and white leftists and to hopefully be elected president.

    Despite all the cynical comments here, it really is very sad. Wuhan Virus is lethal mainly to the elderly but for poorly understood reasons (cytokine storm?) on rare occasions it will kill a young, healthy individual. In Cordero’s case it’s even sadder in that he did not have a mercifully swift death but was tortured by our medical system for 3 months, long after there was any realistic hope of recovery for him. God only knows how many millions his medical bill was.

    Cordero was the exception that proves the rule. His death does not change the fact that the vast majority of Covid deaths are of the elderly and those with co-morbidities.

    One thing I will say in defense of blacks vis-a-vis diabetes: If they aren't smart enough to see through the low-fat, high-carb, no red meat bullshit that's been pushed by health authorities for past 3 decades, then they aren't entirely responsible .

    Replies: @Lot, @Saxon

    You’re assuming they have enough collective thought about what they eat here, which they don’t. They just eat whatever is put in front of them and is most convenient and sugary or “tasty” in the way blacks think of things as such. Which is why they think “unseasoned chicken” is a funny “insult” about whites, because they have such an unrefined palette that they need to use a ton of spices, salt and whatever else on everything they eat.

    So when they are redistributed your money to make themselves obese by eating garbage, and get diabetes or have huge block parties where they spread these diseases to each other at massive rates despite lower risk of contracting it, somehow it’s your fault even though the actual people in control of the system (not whites) do nothing about any of this and would in fact call intervening “white supremacy” or “systemic racism.”

    Why the visceral reaction to the masks? You may as well ask why men viscerally react to a nice pair, although this of course runs completely in the other direction.

    1) If you don't think masks work or don't buy the whole COVID story, wearing one by executive order, especially outdoors, is like being forced to admit that 2 +2 = 5. Fear, control, conformity and compliance.

    2) Even if you do accept the seriousness of the outbreak, masks are by far the number one in-your-face -- actually on-your-face -- visual symbol of the total creepiness of life in 2020. Even if you shut out the media hysterics, seeing people walking around outdoors in masks reinforces the sense of unease.

    It's an interesting question. I've always hated them and have avoided wearing one, despite living in a country where people generally do if they have a cold, or particularly want not to get a cold or flu. But since I don't want to get Covid-19, I've concluded that wearing a mask when I'm close to other people is a reasonable thing to do.

    But why hate having to do it? I think the answer has something to do with honour, and the role that faces play in honour. Honourable people don't like hiding or disfiguring their faces, and they don't like people who do. Occidentals often say that orientals are obsessed with 'face', but having had a lot of experience with both, I've come to believe that occidentals, myself included, are far more concerned with face. Of course many are concerned only with superficial face, and not the true honour that gives it meaning. Disliking the hiding of faces is why occidentals find purdah so offensive.

    People who take this sort of thing seriously react viscerally to being forced into purdah. We want to show that we have nothing to hide, and we also want to say to others, "Show your face!".

    Under 30 would be really hard. In my county (pop. 800,000) the youngest death was age 36. The youngest white death was over 40. There were only 3 white deaths in the under 49 range out of a total of around 800 Covid attributed deaths. Over 500 of the 800 Covid attributed deaths were of people over 80 (of which over 200 were over 90). For a white person under 50 you have a bigger chance of dying in a car accident than you do of dying of Covid (but we wouldn't dream of banning all driving).

    I understand why people are skeptical of Cordero being made the poster boy for Covid when the average age of a Covid mortality is 81 and even higher than 81 for white people (at least that is the # in my county).

    Under 30 would be really hard. In my county (pop. 800,000) the youngest death was age 36. The youngest white death was over 40.

    Then the analysis would be really easy, given a small number of samples. I was reading through press articles from Florida, Texas and Arizona last week and ran across mention of 24 year old woman dying in Phoenix. No idea what condition she was in, but cases at the far tails of the distribution could tell us a lot.

    For a white person under 50 you have a bigger chance of dying in a car accident than you do of dying of Covid (but we wouldn’t dream of banning all driving).

    Sure, but what is the vulnerability? What's the mechanism? How does it happen? These questions would not take a lot of resources to answer and might tell us something significant.

    But, nah. The US CDC couldn't even put people onto the cruise liners stuck outside Panama weeks ago, even though they were nearly perfect floating petri dishes because they'd made one stop since leaving port.

    I understand why people are skeptical of Cordero being made the poster boy for Covid

    Don't much care about poster boys, I want reliable data. One of the most frustrating things about this pandemic has been the near total lack of reliable data.

There were only 3 white deaths in the under 49 range out of a total of around 800 Covid attributed deaths. Over 500 of the 800 Covid attributed deaths were of people over 80 (of which over 200 were over 90). For a white person under 50 you have a bigger chance of dying in a car accident than you do of dying of Covid (but we wouldn't dream of banning all driving).

    I understand why people are skeptical of Cordero being made the poster boy for Covid when the average age of a Covid mortality is 81 and even higher than 81 for white people (at least that is the # in my county).

    The only way to ripe the roots of systemic and structural racism out of this country is to destroy the Democrat party and its ideology. Equity is a dishonest ruse to gull the hapless, half-attentive, the half-wits into the leftist Ponzi scheme they float now.

    Replies: @SMK, @AnotherDad

    Former Vice President Joe Biden vowed Saturday to “rip the roots of systemic racism out of this country”

    Could there be clearer evidence for my call for “separate nations”? (Ok, there probably could, but this is pretty clear.)

    Since when is it the business of the American government to go around on some sort of totalitarian crusade, boring into every American’s life in search of racism like a termite–with predictable results?

    In fact, this is specifically what American republican federalism along with our Bill of Rights is supposed to prevent. American citizens are supposed to be in control of their government
    –to do only the limited activities governments need to do
    –with only local governments, most closely responsive to the local people and attuned to their attitudes and culture involved directly with the people
    –with the national government dealing only with a few select national and foreign (defense) issues
    –with the Bill of Rights protecting individuals and their private affairs from precisely this sort of government bullying.

    Biden’s call isn’t “American” it is anti-American. 200 proof minoritarianism–an evil ideology hostile to the principles of republican federal limited government and traditional Anglo-Saxon liberties upon which America was founded.

    Separate nations–Americans and Rainbows … let us go our separate ways in peace.

    If we’d had a CDC worth a shit, they’d have advised Trump to slap a quarantine on China immediately upon news of the outbreak, then close the borders completely. And they’d have had masks stockpiled and rolling out. We wouldn’t have had any significant epidemic. We wouldn’t have blown up huge sectors of our economy.

    The “ripping out the roots” phrase and racial context made me recall a video game from 2013.

    Those were the last words of the fictional black working class revolutionary Daisy Fitzroy from “Bioshock Infinite.”

    https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a3/Official_cover_art_for_Bioshock_Infinite.jpg

    https://youtu.be/J_gEzOZKyE4

    For non-gamers, Bioshock Infinite was one of the biggest games of 2013 and looking back quite a woke one. Might very well be the official game of the 2013 Great Awokening.

    The game takes place in 1912. Social Darwinism is all the rage. A dude named Comstock makes a religious/eugenics cult city in the sky named Columbia.

    They have some problematic views on race to say the least...

    https://youtu.be/PFKX-Y2u7DY

    Of course this paradise has a lot of blacks and Irish doing the nasty work. Daisy is the revolutionary leader of the “Vox Populi“ a communist themed movement.

    I won’t spoil it (much) but she said the “root ripping” phrase just before attempting to kill a white child.

    I bring it up because it sounds like Biden is looking for a Daisy Fitzroy as his VP.

    Sean Hannity is leading the charge by Conservatism, Inc. to highlight Joe’s long and “problematic” record on matters racial and cultural.

    As usual, the conservatives are probably doing more to help the Democrats than hurt them with their incessant “But they’re the REAL racists!” chants.

    There are no black voters listening to Rush, Hannity, etc. and thinking that maybe they shouldn’t turn out for Biden on Election Day. But there are undoubtedly quite a few whites who would like some good reasons why they don’t really need to vote for Trump.

    I really don't understand the harm in wearing them. Even if they do nothing for Covid (and in fact they do) they also reduce the prevalence of colds and seasonal flu. They have been common in Asian cities for decades. Why are people so viscerally opposed to them? It seems to strike some emotional chord with some people that I can't really understand.

    Replies: @anon, @Known Fact, @RodW

    It’s an interesting question. I’ve always hated them and have avoided wearing one, despite living in a country where people generally do if they have a cold, or particularly want not to get a cold or flu. But since I don’t want to get Covid-19, I’ve concluded that wearing a mask when I’m close to other people is a reasonable thing to do.

    But why hate having to do it? I think the answer has something to do with honour, and the role that faces play in honour. Honourable people don’t like hiding or disfiguring their faces, and they don’t like people who do. Occidentals often say that orientals are obsessed with ‘face’, but having had a lot of experience with both, I’ve come to believe that occidentals, myself included, are far more concerned with face. Of course many are concerned only with superficial face, and not the true honour that gives it meaning. Disliking the hiding of faces is why occidentals find purdah so offensive.

    People who take this sort of thing seriously react viscerally to being forced into purdah. We want to show that we have nothing to hide, and we also want to say to others, “Show your face!”.

    Why the visceral reaction to the masks? You may as well ask why men viscerally react to a nice pair, although this of course runs completely in the other direction.

    1) If you don't think masks work or don't buy the whole COVID story, wearing one by executive order, especially outdoors, is like being forced to admit that 2 +2 = 5. Fear, control, conformity and compliance.

    2) Even if you do accept the seriousness of the outbreak, masks are by far the number one in-your-face -- actually on-your-face -- visual symbol of the total creepiness of life in 2020. Even if you shut out the media hysterics, seeing people walking around outdoors in masks reinforces the sense of unease.

    I find those light blue things disturbing myself, like that shade of institutional paint that is supposed to quiet the dangerously insane. At least kerchiefs still allow someone to look a little bit rakish if they have expressive eyes.
