JOE BIDEN'S RACIAL FEARMONGERING

Joe Biden is once again backpedaling from another old-school-style racist comment. This time, he told the radio show “The Breakfast Club,” “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

This is nothing new: Joe has quite a record of these kinds of Grandpa Simpson statements that embarrass the whole family. Like saying that Obama was the first black candidate to be clean and articulate, or that you can’t go into a 7-11 unless you have a slight Indian accent. Just as with all the #MeToo activists jettisoning their principles to rally around Biden, black liberals are expected to come rushing to the rescue and explain why they still support Joe and it’s really Trump’s fault, anyway. The L.A. Times did it, as did Atlantic magazine writer Jemele Hill, who claimed it was “clearly a joke” (racist jokes are okay now?), plus “it was accurate” (so blacks really are allowed to hold only liberal views?), and of course the real story is "TRUMP BAD!"

I’m sure this will be spun like a top until everyone is so dizzy, at least a few people actually believe that rubbish. It’s happened before. I recently had to do a Google search for Biden’s notorious 2012 election comment to a predominately black audience that the Republicans “want to put y’all back in chains.” (Historical fact: The Democrats were the party of slavery, and the Republican Party was founded to end slavery – and did. Yes, Lincoln was a Republican, no matter what the media tell you. Also, George Wallace was a Democrat.)

But I digress…

I found that the historical revisionists had been working away like magic shoemaker elves and had somehow rewritten that story so that Biden wasn’t indulging in racial fearmongering. Heavens, no! He was actually talking to a “diverse crowd” and referring to the Republicans wanting to metaphorically put people back into the shackles of Wall Street bankers. Because when a guy from Delaware talks about Wall Street, he always uses the word “y’all.” That’s some real Ice Capades-level spinning!

Of all of Joe’s foot-in-mouth racial moments, that one and this most recent one are probably the most disturbing because they don’t just repeat racist stereotypes. They also drag in false political tropes, all in an effort to intimidate black people into giving up their rights to speak freely or think for themselves. They send a message, reinforced by the media, that of course, Republicans are racist, and if you don’t vote for the same awful leftist policies that have been harming African-Americans for generations – from lousy inner-city public schools you’re not allowed to leave to economic policies that depress job creation and wages – then you’re an Uncle Tom and a traitor to your face.

Fortunately, I think the effectiveness of that kind of intellectual terrorism is finally starting to crumble. You can see it all around, from the #WalkAway movement to the rising black support for Trump in polls to the recent story of black Democratic Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones. He nearly resigned after being hit with a torrent of threats and hate messages for saying he endorsed Trump’s reelection because of his success at creating jobs and his backing of criminal sentencing reform. But he decided to fight back against liberal intimidation tactics. I interviewed him on “Huckabee” on TBN. You can watch that here.

African-American Republican Sen. Tim Scott also had some choice words for Biden and his defenders.

Comments such as Biden’s are insulting both to African-Americans and to Republicans because they perpetuate slanderous falsehoods about both groups. I grew up in the South in the ‘60s, I saw real racism, and I was repulsed by it. I was inspired by the Rev. Martin Luther King to stand up against it. As a pastor, I refused to allow segregationists to have sway over my church, and as a Governor, I reached out to the black communities of Arkansas. They were skeptical at first (imagine what they’d heard!), but they eventually realized I meant it. When I ran for reelection, I was proud to receive the highest share of the black vote that any Republican had received since Reconstruction days. I don’t relate any of this to brag, just to show that being a Republican does not mean being a racist.

For the record, as a conservative, Christian Republican, here are a few things I believe:

That we are all children of God, created in His image, which means that racism is a repugnant sin against God because it means calling some people inferior simply because of the way the Lord created them…

That all babies of all races are precious from the moment of their creation and their lives deserve protection from the abortion lobby, which has targeted and been especially deadly for African-American babies…

That every person deserves a shot at earning the American Dream through their own study, hard work, and initiative, not through those in authority picking winners and losers…

That the goal of school policy should be providing every child with the best possible education, and that parents should be allowed to decide whether that means public, private, church, or home school. There is nothing sacred about teachers’ unions or the public school “system.” The only sacred priority should be the children…

That the Bill of Rights and the legal due process rights that flow from it must be protected for every person of every race -- particularly the Second Amendment, which allowed black people to protect themselves from racist threats at a time when official authorities refused to do so…

That every individual has a right to think freely, express their thoughts freely, and debate those ideas openly, without fear of retribution, intimidation, or slander.

If you are black and agree with those things, then you don’t owe your vote to anyone just because they threaten to call you a traitor to your race if you refuse to support people who oppose your own principles.

CRICKETS

If you wonder why the media fixated so much on something so dumb as whether President Trump wore a facemask when touring the Ford plant in Michigan, maybe it’s because it gave them something to talk about other than what he actually said there. And what he said was that churches are essential, he wants them to reopen and has talked to the CDC about that, and that blue state Governors who target churches and keep them closed will risk him overriding their rules.

Liberal reporters blasted him for leaving decisions up to Governors and not exercising more federal authority, so I assume they’ll be applauding him for this, right? Right?...Is that crickets I hear?...

IMPORTANT BULLETIN

If you’re not burned out on hearing about the railroading of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, here’s an important bulletin: the US Court of Appeals for DC has given Flynn’s judge, Emmet Sullivan, 10 days to respond to attorney Sidney Powell’s emergency request for a writ of mandamus, ordering Sullivan to dismiss the case, since the DOJ has already withdrawn the charges.

This gives Sullivan just 10 days to think up some solid legal grounds for why he should be allowed to continue acting as both Flynn’s judge and prosecutor, and calling for illegal amicus briefs to help him think up new things to charge Flynn with. Sorry, “I was appointed by Bill Clinton” doesn’t count.

In a related story, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and campaign manager Paul Manafort, 70, have been released from prison to home confinement to protect them from contracting the coronavirus. I’m surprised Democrats didn’t suggest putting Manafort in solitary confinement.

INTERESTING HISTORY

This article gives a lengthy and interesting history of the efforts to insure that the UN protects the right to life of unborn children around the world.

What sparked its writing was the news that the US is calling on the UN to remove abortion provisions from its global coronavirus emergency plan. Why that should ever have been included is as much a mystery as why a blue state governor would keep abortion clinics open while telling people that vaccinations, tooth fillings, chemotherapy or biopsies are “non-essential” medical services. If you’re trying to convince us that you’re only exercising extra-constitutional powers because it’s necessary to save human lives, then don’t use them to kill pre-born babies.

    Amen, Mike. I worked briefly in a preschool, and holey socks, I see so many similarities between those preschool kids and their whining,, name-calling, and hurtful actions toward any who disagree with them. I was married for 37 years to a man with a developmental brain disorder, NPD, and I didn't even hear about this disorder till after he dumped me. Now I see so many red flags, and I see that same "Me, my, mine, mine, mine" attitude in Congress. May God have mercy on our nation, pour out a spirit o9 true awakening, revelation of sins and God's holiness, and genuine repentance into the leadership and people of our nation, bring repentance and revival we so desperately need. My husband Daniel is a friend of Mike and Karen Pence, and boy, you and Mike would make an unbeatable, unflappable, un-deceivable team in the White House!

    Great article, Governor! Thank you for presenting factual information and encouraging words. I have to disagree, though, that we are all "children of God". That's true in the sense that He created everyone in His image. But we become His sons and daughters by adoption (John 1:12), when we receive Jesus as our only Redeemer - God has no natural children. Just saying...

    Sleepy Joe is not sure what era this is he probably thinking Lois Farrachann is still telling Blacks what to do he thinks Al Sharpton is still telling blacks what to do or the Rev Wright screaming and Hollering at blacks what to do Jesse Jackson well he is not saying all that much today after he got caught sneaking in and out the back door of other mens homes I think Sharpton and AOC may have the same tax man any way old Sleepy Joe is operating on reflexes like a chicken after it has been beheaded just remind Sleepy that they shut down his plantation 150 years ago. Americans should be able make their own decisions without nit wits like the Left using groups to get into power positions and then forget about the group for 4 years don't worry they will be back in another 4 years to bait the group again. I just wanted to let people know I don't approve the tactics the Left use attacking Americans our President and our Country I thought I would shovel the same Shitff back at them.

    In 1982 my husband was sent to Greenville, MS to run a steel plant. I went down on occasion and found myself in a completely different world. Sitting at a breakfast bar I glanced at the paper a gentleman sitting next to me was reading. I made a comment when I saw Satchel Page had died. I had always loved baseball and had read about him. The man told me he didn't follow baseball and didn't know who Satchel Page was. One of the greatest baseball players of all time I told him. He kept looking over my shoulder as we talked. Apparently his brother was sitting in a booth and was warning him he shouldn't be talking to me. You see he was a black man and I was a white woman. I later learned that gentleman I had the brief conversation with was from Memphis. I was from Northern Illinois. Neither of us had a problem conversing with each other. I was brought up to respect people and NOT judge them by the color of their skin. On another occasion we had a black waiter who I thanked each time he served me. He NEVER looked me in the eye. Seeing racism first hand for the first time was a real eye opener for me. The remarks that Biden makes are not only appalling, but are racist and not a joke to anyone of any color.

    Isn't it ridiculous that the party of abortion, the democrats, claim they are not racist? Yet abortion was promoted by Sanger simply to kill black babies. So how can you be for a group when you promote killing them????

  • Margaret Koch

    05/23/2020 05:55 PM

    Yes, George Wallace was a Democrat. So was Robert Byrd, who was also a high-ranking member of the KKK. The KKK was started by Democrats. The Democrats have worked very hard to ensure Blacks and other minorities are reduced to depending on handouts from taxpayers ("the government"). One reason, I believe, why history is being warped by liberal public schools and beyond to try to keep minorities from learning the truth about the Democrat party.

    Isn't it ridiculous that the party of abortion, the democrats, claim they are not racist? Yet abortion was promoted by Sanger simply to kill black babies. So how can you be for a group when you promote killing them????

    Yes, George Wallace was a Democrat. So was Robert Byrd, who was also a high-ranking member of the KKK. The KKK was started by Democrats. The Democrats have worked very hard to ensure Blacks and other minorities are reduced to depending on handouts from taxpayers ("the government"). One reason, I believe, why history is being warped by liberal public schools and beyond to try to keep minorities from learning the truth about the Democrat party.

JOE BIDEN'S RACIAL FEARMONGERING

Joe Biden is once again backpedaling from another old-school-style racist comment. This time, he told the radio show “The Breakfast Club,” “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

This is nothing new: Joe has quite a record of these kinds of Grandpa Simpson statements that embarrass the whole family. Like saying that Obama was the first black candidate to be clean and articulate, or that you can’t go into a 7-11 unless you have a slight Indian accent. Just as with all the #MeToo activists jettisoning their principles to rally around Biden, black liberals are expected to come rushing to the rescue and explain why they still support Joe and it’s really Trump’s fault, anyway. The L.A. Times did it, as did Atlantic magazine writer Jemele Hill, who claimed it was “clearly a joke” (racist jokes are okay now?), plus “it was accurate” (so blacks really are allowed to hold only liberal views?), and of course the real story is "TRUMP BAD!"

I’m sure this will be spun like a top until everyone is so dizzy, at least a few people actually believe that rubbish. It’s happened before. I recently had to do a Google search for Biden’s notorious 2012 election comment to a predominately black audience that the Republicans “want to put y’all back in chains.” (Historical fact: The Democrats were the party of slavery, and the Republican Party was founded to end slavery – and did. Yes, Lincoln was a Republican, no matter what the media tell you. Also, George Wallace was a Democrat.)

But I digress…

I found that the historical revisionists had been working away like magic shoemaker elves and had somehow rewritten that story so that Biden wasn’t indulging in racial fearmongering. Heavens, no! He was actually talking to a “diverse crowd” and referring to the Republicans wanting to metaphorically put people back into the shackles of Wall Street bankers. Because when a guy from Delaware talks about Wall Street, he always uses the word “y’all.” That’s some real Ice Capades-level spinning!

Of all of Joe’s foot-in-mouth racial moments, that one and this most recent one are probably the most disturbing because they don’t just repeat racist stereotypes. They also drag in false political tropes, all in an effort to intimidate black people into giving up their rights to speak freely or think for themselves. They send a message, reinforced by the media, that of course, Republicans are racist, and if you don’t vote for the same awful leftist policies that have been harming African-Americans for generations – from lousy inner-city public schools you’re not allowed to leave to economic policies that depress job creation and wages – then you’re an Uncle Tom and a traitor to your face.

Fortunately, I think the effectiveness of that kind of intellectual terrorism is finally starting to crumble. You can see it all around, from the #WalkAway movement to the rising black support for Trump in polls to the recent story of black Democratic Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones. He nearly resigned after being hit with a torrent of threats and hate messages for saying he endorsed Trump’s reelection because of his success at creating jobs and his backing of criminal sentencing reform. But he decided to fight back against liberal intimidation tactics. I interviewed him on “Huckabee” on TBN. You can watch that here.

African-American Republican Sen. Tim Scott also had some choice words for Biden and his defenders.

Comments such as Biden’s are insulting both to African-Americans and to Republicans because they perpetuate slanderous falsehoods about both groups. I grew up in the South in the ‘60s, I saw real racism, and I was repulsed by it. I was inspired by the Rev. Martin Luther King to stand up against it. As a pastor, I refused to allow segregationists to have sway over my church, and as a Governor, I reached out to the black communities of Arkansas. They were skeptical at first (imagine what they’d heard!), but they eventually realized I meant it. When I ran for reelection, I was proud to receive the highest share of the black vote that any Republican had received since Reconstruction days. I don’t relate any of this to brag, just to show that being a Republican does not mean being a racist.

For the record, as a conservative, Christian Republican, here are a few things I believe:

That we are all children of God, created in His image, which means that racism is a repugnant sin against God because it means calling some people inferior simply because of the way the Lord created them…

That all babies of all races are precious from the moment of their creation and their lives deserve protection from the abortion lobby, which has targeted and been especially deadly for African-American babies…

That every person deserves a shot at earning the American Dream through their own study, hard work, and initiative, not through those in authority picking winners and losers…

That the goal of school policy should be providing every child with the best possible education, and that parents should be allowed to decide whether that means public, private, church, or home school. There is nothing sacred about teachers’ unions or the public school “system.” The only sacred priority should be the children…

That the Bill of Rights and the legal due process rights that flow from it must be protected for every person of every race -- particularly the Second Amendment, which allowed black people to protect themselves from racist threats at a time when official authorities refused to do so…

That every individual has a right to think freely, express their thoughts freely, and debate those ideas openly, without fear of retribution, intimidation, or slander.

If you are black and agree with those things, then you don’t owe your vote to anyone just because they threaten to call you a traitor to your race if you refuse to support people who oppose your own principles.

CRICKETS

If you wonder why the media fixated so much on something so dumb as whether President Trump wore a facemask when touring the Ford plant in Michigan, maybe it’s because it gave them something to talk about other than what he actually said there. And what he said was that churches are essential, he wants them to reopen and has talked to the CDC about that, and that blue state Governors who target churches and keep them closed will risk him overriding their rules.

Liberal reporters blasted him for leaving decisions up to Governors and not exercising more federal authority, so I assume they’ll be applauding him for this, right? Right?...Is that crickets I hear?...

IMPORTANT BULLETIN

If you’re not burned out on hearing about the railroading of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, here’s an important bulletin: the US Court of Appeals for DC has given Flynn’s judge, Emmet Sullivan, 10 days to respond to attorney Sidney Powell’s emergency request for a writ of mandamus, ordering Sullivan to dismiss the case, since the DOJ has already withdrawn the charges.

This gives Sullivan just 10 days to think up some solid legal grounds for why he should be allowed to continue acting as both Flynn’s judge and prosecutor, and calling for illegal amicus briefs to help him think up new things to charge Flynn with. Sorry, “I was appointed by Bill Clinton” doesn’t count.

In a related story, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and campaign manager Paul Manafort, 70, have been released from prison to home confinement to protect them from contracting the coronavirus. I’m surprised Democrats didn’t suggest putting Manafort in solitary confinement.

INTERESTING HISTORY

This article gives a lengthy and interesting history of the efforts to insure that the UN protects the right to life of unborn children around the world.

What sparked its writing was the news that the US is calling on the UN to remove abortion provisions from its global coronavirus emergency plan. Why that should ever have been included is as much a mystery as why a blue state governor would keep abortion clinics open while telling people that vaccinations, tooth fillings, chemotherapy or biopsies are “non-essential” medical services. If you’re trying to convince us that you’re only exercising extra-constitutional powers because it’s necessary to save human lives, then don’t use them to kill pre-born babies.

    Amen, Mike. I worked briefly in a preschool, and holey socks, I see so many similarities between those preschool kids and their whining,, name-calling, and hurtful actions toward any who disagree with them. I was married for 37 years to a man with a developmental brain disorder, NPD, and I didn't even hear about this disorder till after he dumped me. Now I see so many red flags, and I see that same "Me, my, mine, mine, mine" attitude in Congress. May God have mercy on our nation, pour out a spirit o9 true awakening, revelation of sins and God's holiness, and genuine repentance into the leadership and people of our nation, bring repentance and revival we so desperately need. My husband Daniel is a friend of Mike and Karen Pence, and boy, you and Mike would make an unbeatable, unflappable, un-deceivable team in the White House! God bless and protect you and every truly accountable, honest, working for the good and upright standing of our nation and people person and leader in our country and the world!

    Great article, Governor! Thank you for presenting factual information and encouraging words. I have to disagree, though, that we are all "children of God". That's true in the sense that He created everyone in His image. But we become His sons and daughters by adoption (John 1:12), when we receive Jesus as our only Redeemer - God has no natural children. Just saying...
    Thank you for what you do. God bless you!

    Sleepy Joe is not sure what era this is he probably thinking Lois Farrachann is still telling Blacks what to do he thinks Al Sharpton is still telling blacks what to do or the Rev Wright screaming and Hollering at blacks what to do Jesse Jackson well he is not saying all that much today after he got caught sneaking in and out the back door of other mens homes I think Sharpton and AOC may have the same tax man any way old Sleepy Joe is operating on reflexes like a chicken after it has been beheaded just remind Sleepy that they shut down his plantation 150 years ago. Americans should be able make their own decisions without nit wits like the Left using groups to get into power positions and then forget about the group for 4 years don't worry they will be back in another 4 years to bait the group again. I just wanted to let people know I don't approve the tactics the Left use attacking Americans our President and our Country I thought I would shovel the same Shitff back at them.

    In 1982 my husband was sent to Greenville, MS to run a steel plant. I went down on occasion and found myself in a completely different world. Sitting at a breakfast bar I glanced at the paper a gentleman sitting next to me was reading. I made a comment when I saw Satchel Page had died. I had always loved baseball and had read about him. The man told me he didn't follow baseball and didn't know who Satchel Page was. One of the greatest baseball players of all time I told him. He kept looking over my shoulder as we talked. Apparently his brother was sitting in a booth and was warning him he shouldn't be talking to me. You see he was a black man and I was a white woman. I later learned that gentleman I had the brief conversation with was from Memphis. I was from Northern Illinois. Neither of us had a problem conversing with each other. I was brought up to respect people and NOT judge them by the color of their skin. On another occasion we had a black waiter who I thanked each time he served me. He NEVER looked me in the eye. Seeing racism first hand for the first time was a real eye opener for me. The remarks that Biden makes are not only appalling, but are racist and not a joke to anyone of any color.
