Today is a day that ends in "y", so of course Joe Biden said something outrageously dumb or offensive. What did he say today (technically this was from a few weeks back, but whatever)? Let's check the tape:
"The reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home was because some black woman was able to stock the grocery shelf"
Oh to be a Democrat. It must be a wonderful thing to be able to basically say and do whatever you want without any REAL consequences from the media. Sure, some outliers do exist, but on the whole, the media will cover for Democrats in a manner that is truly revealing and embarrassing to the institution of "journalism".
I hate to be THAT guy, but imagine if President Trump (nay, ANY Republican) said something akin to "Black women stock groceries for a living". Think about how the media would cover that statement - you'd basically hear Don LAMON on CNN espousing how the GOP thinks Black people should be back in chains or blah blah blah blah blah. Joy Reid might boycott her show because such a statement would be "violence against black people".
Here is the worst part - I don't even think there is anything wrong with what Joe Biden said. There is nothing wrong with highlighting the fact that Black Americans (in addition to Americans of all backgrounds) going to work, have allowed ALL people in society to continue to function. The problem here is the double standard. We're so used to seeing the media overreact to innocuous statements, like this one, and we have become over-reactionary in response.
10 years ago I wouldn't have batted an eye hearing Joe Biden's statement, but today my reaction was "LOOK WHAT HE SAID!!!!! WE SHOULD DRAG HIM". Why? Because I want the media to apply their insane, dumb and bad faith standards equally. But truthfully, what I really want - what I think we ALL really want - is for them to abandon these divisive standards all together and let us resume life as humans, rather than narratives wound up like toy soldiers in a collision course with one another.
Anyways, all that aside - I guess I need to play by the rules my media betters have set forth for us all - so here goes nothing: Joe Biden is obviously an irredeemable racist piece of shit. I mean you can't make a statement like that and NOT be an irredeemable racist piece of shit. "Vote for me, Joe Biden, the irredeemable racist piece of shit" should be his new campaign slogan. See how that works?
Onto some fun reactions:
King Smug has a point. . .
That's the idea.
So there you have it, you won't see or hear this clip on any legacy media outlet because they don't care when Democrats are causally racist. Why? Because the media isn't in the business of truth telling, especially when there is a narrative to protect. The narrative here is that the Old White Guy who drafted the 1994 Crime Bill, gave a eulogy for the Grand Cyclops of the KKK, hung out with Segregationists and said he didn't want kids going to school in 'racial jungles' - is ACTUALLY the non-racist candidate in 2020.
You know the drill.
God Bless America.
