"...then you ain't black."

“If you can’t figure out whether to vote for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Joseph R Biden telling “Charlemagne the God” what’s what in a (for Biden) light hearted moment. Sure Biden missed the point that blacks have been getting the short end of the justice stick for a long frikkin’ time, (including during the Obama/Biden era). Biden does not fully seem to get that.

However, I think he will be better suited to dealing with injustice for blacks than Obama was. Why is that? Because Obama, as the 1st black President, was elected to be the President for ALL Americans. And he could ill afford being portrayed as only the President for black Americans. Biden will not have that built in (1st black President) constraint for promoting justice for blacks. Because Biden is white.

 

It is commonly known that Biden occasionally does and will emit gaffes. He always has. But not near the frequency, goofiness, and destructiveness of a certain T rump, e.g.,

  • Windmills cause ear cancer
  • His wanting to buy Greenland
  • His saying “I am the chosen one. So I’m taking on China."
  • His going after three American Congresswomen he perceived as foreigners because they are people of color, and telling them to go back and fix things in their own countries.
  • His bragging to his worshipful throngs that “We can have a lot of fun tonight. I have nothing to do. Nothing. Nothing.” Hmm. A POTUS with nothing to do? Nothing?
  • His saying “The buck stops with everybody.” re: the govt shutdown.
  • His trying to brand the Canada/Mexico trade agreement as like the Village people song, when he said “USMCA. Think of the song ‘YMCA.’ ♫ YMCA ♫ think of the song."
  • His seemingly 1st recognition of soccer in the US, just in time for the U.S. women’s team to win their 2nd World Cup, when he said, “And a lot of people, including me, thought soccer would probably never make it in this country, but it really is moving forward rapidly,”
  • The time he claimed to have created a word when speaking to his crowd in El Paso. “How about the word ‘caravan?’ Caravan? I think that was one of mine.”
  • His saying “And I think that the people of Puerto Rico are very grateful to Donald Trump for what we’ve done for them,” at a rally in Panama City, Florida. Then not 10 seconds later, he said, “That’s Puerto Rico, and they don’t like me.”
Those silly gaffes are via https://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/2019/12/trumps-10-most-hilariously-stupid-things-he-said-in-2019/ and were only some of the gaffes he made in only the year 2019.

Here are some more mostly from my memory:

  • He suggested nuking a hurricane
  • He ordered that the entire city of Seoul be moved
  • Covfefe
  • Repeatedly saying "oranges" when he meant "origins"
  • Saying in front of Putin and the world that he didn't know why the Russians would have interfered in the 2016 election.
  • His enthusiastic advocating for people to take Hydroxychloroquine to address C-19. (which he hawked 50ish times)
  • His actually taking a 2 week regimen of hydroxychloroquine.
  • His suggestion that injecting disinfectants might be a way to cure C-19.
  • His statement re: John McCain: “He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured."
  • His statement about Meghan Kelly, referring to her possibly being on her monthly period. “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.”
  • His visual and verbal mocking of a journalist who has a congenital condition that causes spastic movements.
  • His claiming that his inauguration crowd was bigger than Obamas, when pictures clearly showed his crowd size was inferior.
  • His suggestion that Ted Cruz's dad was a part of the Kennedy assassination.
  • His allegation that that Bill Clinton committed rape as well as other sexual offenses.
  • His allegation that President Obama is the founder of ISIS.
  • His making up something he calls Obamagate, and declaring it the worst crime in history.
AND OH SO MANY MORE, but you get the idea.

If there’s one thing Blacks love, it’s Whites telling them who is authentically Black.

Biden doesn’t have a clue what he is talking about. Unfortunately, he’s what’s left of those who we can use to get the criminal out of the Big House after that next election. He’ll be an improvement, but not by much.

He’ll be an improvement, but not by much.
Really? C'mon! Not by much!? Dog poop would be MUCH better than T rump. And Joseph R Biden is not dog poop.

That could be his campaign slogan. And a winning one, at that. One important difference is that Joseph R Biden, even old as he is, can do something that T rump cannot – that is learn from his mistakes. The only problem is whether we can get to and through a free and fair election. I’m truly sorry, but if blacks think they have it bad now (and I think they have it bad now) they are going to have it a LOT WORSE if T rump remains the head of State. We all will.

I recall predicting, before T rump was elected, that it would result in a great calamity of some sort, when T rump was faced with a crisis that he is not equipped to deal with, to the ruin of us all. That has happened and is happening.

And, more recently, I have predicted that if T rump takes a 2nd term, it will be a solidification of his movement towards autocracy. He will be a full blown dictator of the USA, with half of America hating him. What could go wrong in that scenario?

If Joseph R Biden becomes POTUS, we ALL have a chance to overcome, not just blacks. But blacks will also, because it is Joseph R Biden. VP to Barack Obama. Will Obama sit back and not do any prompting of Biden toward addressing injustice towards blacks? I don’t think so. And neither will progressives in general.

OTOH, if T rump is our dictator, he will be supported by the alt-right to be as White Supremacist as he wants to be. Talk about a dystopia.

If Charlemagne is a God, shouldn’t he have a bit more foresight? I am kidding, Charlemagne’s doing a good job of lobbying for the interests of blacks, which I agree that they deserve for voting so much and so consistently as they have for Democrats. (They haven’t yet learned to vote as a block for progressive liberals, I think, to their detriment).

Oneguy, Biden just committed the sin of trying to kid around with a black person who is simultaneously being serious about black interests. And his quip was, although a major social feaux pax, NOT inappropriately hyperbolic, because we will all be screwed if the blacks don’t, once again, get out the vote for Biden. And blacks, as usual will likely be screwed most of all, after hispanics, that is.

For the 1st time in this election cycle, Joseph R Biden is, at least for the moment, getting equal time with T rump on cable news shows. It is exclusively about his gaffe, but this seems to be a way that he can get equal time even on networks like CNN and MSNBC.

Biden only has a tenuous connection to Black well being as Obama’s VP. It’s not like he actually did anything. Most Blacks were disappointed in Obama himself. I think it’s naïve to hope that’s enough to make Blacks relate to weird old Biden.

On the other hand, Blacks have been doing fairly well under this administration. They may do even better under the next 4 years of Mr Trump.

Not easy to find any data to back up what you say oneguy. The usual list of bias sources say Trump is “making America great” for African Americans. When a paper uses a campaign slogan, I usually don’t trust it. Unemployment was down for them, but I don’t see a policy connection. He did the “First Step Act”, kind of a token thing there. Not much else. The headlines that looked like they wouldn’t be biased were behind paywalls. This one looked reasonable.

It was the black vote that resuscitated Biden's chances of winning the primary and then cemented his victory.

Oh really? Who told you that? T rump? He is a LIAR, in case you hadn't noticed. Btw, do you call dying at a much higher rate from C-19 doing better? And how many blacks are unemployed NOW after T rump's imbecilic handling of the Pandemic?
They may do even better under the next 4 years of Mr Trump.
NONE of us will do better under 4 more years of T rump. It has generally been the case throughout our history that blacks do worse than the rest of our society. So if we are all subject to 4 more years of T rump, it will be truly horrid for all of us, and therefore, most likely, even worse for blacks.

Another T rump gaffe today to report.

He was announcing a plan that would make insulin more affordable for people with Medicare. And EVERYTHING is about him, so he paused and said: “I don’t use insulin,” Trump said. “Should I be? Huh? I never thought about it….”

The Surgeon General had to tell him: “Your body, Mr. President, actually makes insulin endogenously.” The Surgeon General continued that "people such as you and I, we make our own insulin. So yes we do utilize insulin, but we make it ourselves.”

Like I say. T rump has the medical knowledge of a child, yet he is leading us in a Pandemic while undermining what people who do understand medicine are telling him.

Oh yeah, T rump is also accusing Joe Scarborough of murder. Not very presidential eh? More like a propagandistic dictator, like Putin who tends to shut up his critics in the press, by one means or another.

But he couldn’t get the Central Park 5, executed for a crime they didn’t commit. He didn’t get Ted Cruz’s dad for helping kill Kennedy. He couldn’t convict Obama of some horrible crime that T rump called Obamagate. And he never proved that Obama founded ISIS. Maybe this LIE will pass like all the others, into history, that he will attempt to re-write when it suits him.

 

 

 

 

 

Repeatedly saying “oranges” when he meant “origins”
Hey he was just loaded out of his mind. It was his mouth's fault not his.

 

Guy: On the other hand, Blacks have been doing fairly well under this administration.
So good with words - ever do any fact checking guy? Oh, but guess the first question do you even give a damned about factual, or truth, or trying to understand more than the headlines FOX NEWS (just like all the others - except they script their news and are rabidly goal oriented extreme partisans) feed you?

The Real Shadow Policy of the Trump Administration Is Racist Extremism

Trump and racism: What do the data say?

Guess the real question is, could you care less what the truth is?  White guy behind the face paint, or is it a mask.  Iconic in a way.

TimB: “…Repeatedly saying “oranges” when he meant “origins”…”

CC: “Hey he was just loaded out of his mind. It was his mouth’s fault not his.”

TimB: Do you think he was loaded on some sort of medication? He is said to have never even tasted alcohol. And I don’t think he has the personality to experiment with street drugs or to use them for fun. But he obviously does experiment with prescription medicines. e.g., hydroxychloroquine.

What prescription medicines would cause that sort of speech slurring?

This is just an op-ed filled with straw men.

Trump has done absolutely nothing whatsoever to make life worse for Blacks.

Trump has made his dislike of drugs and alcohol well known over the past 40 years.

All opinion with no data to back it up.
It was the black vote that resuscitated Biden’s chances of winning the primary and then cemented his victory.
No guarantee it will continue, especially if Biden continues making dumb remarks trying to relate to Blacks, which is likely.
Oh really? Who told you that? T rump? He is a LIAR, in case you hadn’t noticed. Btw, do you call dying at a much higher rate from C-19 doing better? And how many blacks are unemployed NOW after T rump’s imbecilic handling of the Pandemic?
Trump is not responsible for the social conditions and poor overall health of Blacks.
No guarantee it will continue, especially if Biden continues making dumb remarks trying to relate to Blacks, which is likely.
The black support for Joe Biden will continue. Believe it or not, this is not the 1st time that an old white man has said something offensive to black men.

All in all, Joe is a chariot with angels, compared to His Lordship, the Mostimus Greatissniss, Donald John T rump, Divider and Destroyer of America, Promoter of actions that will prolong the ongoing Injustice and Inequality of rights.

Trump is not responsible for the social conditions and poor overall health of Blacks.
He claims to have made life so much better for blacks. I wonder if they are better off now, than they were 4 years ago? Maybe some are, in Minneapolis tonight, after pillaging and looting a Target. At least they will have a surplus of groceries and whatever else that stripped from that store or nearby ones.

And what did T rump do about Flint Michigan’s water or about issues of social injustice by police? If there exists a clear video of a cop murdering a completely restrained black man, then chances are there have been multiple such incidents that had NO corroborating video as evidence. Those incidents never saw the light of day.

T rump has bragged that he has increased the pay of the lowest paid Americans, minorities and women, by 9%, but that was before a Pandemic AND an economic crash that are hardest on minorities. T rump has persistently and consistently tried to destroy what is left of Obamacare, and is also exploring the possibility of limiting Medicare, both of which, many minorities count on for their healthcare.

Trump has made his dislike of drugs and alcohol well known over the past 40 years.
I know that he dislikes alcohol and street drugs. But he obviously likes using prescription drugs, since he bragged about taking hydroxychloroquine for 2 weeks, (along with a Z-pack that was useless for his body at best since he had no whisper of a bacterial infection).

So I bet he takes other prescription meds at times. I was wondering what prescription medicine he could be on that leads to some of his vocal slurring moments or times that he acts like someone who has had too much to drink.

I know that he dislikes alcohol and street drugs.
Stop right there. Can you say something positive about Trump based on just that fact you acknowledged?
