If you have not seen the video, Yesterday Biden on a live show appearance closed the conversation with the statement “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black”. Expectedly, he has already walked back on these comments claiming he “should not have been such a wise guy” in his comments on Thursday. Pundits all over had much to say on this latest gaffe by Biden, those excusing it as nothing more than an off the cuff comment, and others claiming it shows an ignorant racial tension exists in the Biden camp. Regardless of how you feel about Biden, the topic is such an interesting subject to dive into.
How can it be ok that any candidate tells an entire race of people who they are or aren’t based on their political views? How could anyone manage to get away with telling anyone who they are or are not based on anything for that matter, not just political alignments, I thought this was the woke 2020’s the era of cancel culture, ultra political correctness, and social justice warriors… or is it? See the truth is that the screaming heads of these “woke” movements aren’t true warriors for individualism and expressive thought. They believe that their thoughts and their opinions and their morals are superior to anyone who disagrees. That is exactly how you get here, by the way, knowing what is better for someone else, or knowing who they are based on politics is just a byproduct of the SJW (social justice warrior) culture today.
Here is the truth, Biden gets away with saying you ain’t black if you don’t vote for him because he is a democrat. He is an old white brainless Dem who seems to rarely know where he is or what he is doing, but he certainly still remembers his belief that he has the authority to tell people (especially minorities) who they should vote for if they don’t want to be considered a traitor to a race he is not even a part of.
How is this not headlining news? Has Trump’s racist behaviour all but normalized this kind of culture? Probably helped in some ways yes. But ultimately what is going on is that Biden is the presumptive nominee and if you hate Trump the only way you are going to get rid of him is if Biden is not a lame duck. Thus the pundits who want him to win need to do their best cringe-worthy impressions of how this is not a big deal and brush it off.
So if this isn’t the era of the woke SJW 20’s what era is this? Well, that is easy, it’s the era of “the ends justify the means”. Yup, that is right, the only thing that matters is the goal and in this case, that goal is to defeat Trump at all costs. And by the looks of it, the costs are piling up.
