Honestly, I don’t get how anyone in the right minds would vote for presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Are you out of your gourds?
What am I talking about exactly? The entire idea of supporting Biden because of the Democratic label is nothing short of irony. Allow me to explain.
MYTH: Biden cares about women’s rights and children
THE TRUTH: Biden reveals his true colors in 1974 when he openly opposes the Roe v. Wade decision. You didn’t need Snopes to sniff that one out for you back in 2019 – it’s a proven fact. The quote used in The Washingtonian states the following:
I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion. I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.
While Biden has made a transition from that quote, it should not be ignored that he said such a thing.
Biden, who is facing allegations of sexual misconduct from eight different women, doesn’t really care about women’s rights. Those women have yet to have their day in Congress to face their oppressor.
Let’s talk about the other creepiness factors about Biden. Invasion of one’s personal space. The hair-sniffing. The alleged groping. A 2019 Vanity Fair article by Laura Bradley reveals two instances of such. The article spoke of former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, who expressed that Biden once invaded her personal space ahead of her campaign event. Biden allegations included his smelling of her hair and planting a slow kiss on the back of her head. Another instance included former Democratic aide Amy Lappos. Lappos stated that Biden once put his hand around her neck and pulled her in to rub noses.
Let’s not forget the instances — well documented, by the way — of such behavior surrounding children.
MYTH: Biden is all about equality
Wrong again, bucko.
Biden has a track record of racism that could make an elderly nun angrier than a beaver.
Let’s start with Biden’s 1975 vote against the desegregation of schools. His reasoning, as revealed in a March 2019 Washington Post article:
I do not buy the concept, popular in the ’60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race.’ I don’t buy that.
Biden would even go as far as the following remark regarding reparations:
I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.
OOF. For lack of better terminology, Biden is getting dragged through this entire commentary so far.
His legislative works would increase his apparent racism significantly.
Biden’s Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 would give way to the worst rates of prison incarceration rates and racial disparity when it comes to crimes actually committed. It also allowed this unfortunate policy that people like Justin Amash is working so hard to repeal: qualified immunity. Things have significantly gotten worse since it marked its 25th-anniversary last year.
He voted in favor of the USA PATRIOT Act in 2001, which made criminal justice matters even worse. How? It opened the door to warrant-less, no-knock raids. As a result, this is a clearly defined violation of the Fourth Amendment.
The victims of the no-knock raids he helped authorize
No-knock raids have killed or severely harmed numerous people over the years, a few as examples:
- 2014 – Cornelia, GA: Bounkham Phonesavanh (an infant)
- 1999 – Denver, CO: Ismael Mena
- 2006 – Atlanta, GA: Kathryn Johnson (elderly woman)
- 2020 – Pontiac, MD: Duncan Lemp
- 2020 – Louisville, KY: Breonna Taylor
Additionally, Biden didn’t even want those in the LGBTQ+ community to get married in a 1996 vote.
MYTH: Biden wants to end all wars
Another laughable assumption.
Biden voted in support of the initial war on terrorism abroad in Iraq in 2002. However, he has yet to call out support to end the war, 18 years after we got involved in this war. It’s time to bring them all home. NOW.
At home, the war on drugs rages on, no thanks to his 1994 crime bill and support of the 2001 Patriot Act. However, that war rages on because of his refusal to support the full legalization of marijuana in 2014.
Oh, the irony and lies Democratic voters believe to actually consider voting for Biden in November. The fact that his track record makes him look like a stereotypical perfect Republican, as a result, is pretty damning.
Don’t think Trump is going to be immune
