President Biden pressed his call Thursday for the United States to combat “systemic racism” through policy initiatives, in his first public response to remarks made by Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina.
Scott delivered the GOP rebuttal to Biden’s first speech to Congress on Wednesday night. In the speech, Scott argued that liberals have ignored America’s progress in addressing racism and attempted to stifle debate on key issues.
“America is not a racist country,” Scott said. “It’s backwards to fight discrimination with different types of discrimination.”
In an interview with NBC’s “Today” show, a clip of which aired Thursday evening on NBC Nightly News, Biden was asked to respond to Scott’s remarks and say whether he felt was America was racist.
“No, I don’t think the American people are racist, but I think after 400 years, African-Americans have been left in a position where they are so far behind the eight-ball in terms of education, health, in terms of opportunity,” Biden said.
“I think the overhang from all of the Jim Crow and before that, slavery, has had a cost, and we have to deal with it,” Biden added.
During his speech to Congress, Biden said his “American Jobs Plan” and “American Families Plan” – the two parts of his $4 trillion infrastructure and spending package – would provide the country with a “real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life.” The packages face a difficult road to passage in the Senate, where the Democrats hold a razor-thin majority.
Biden also urged Congress to pass a police reform bill by the end of May, to coincide with the first anniversary of George Floyd’s death.
Let me get this straight: Biden says that he does “not think that the American people are racist” and then goes on to rail about “Systemic Racism”.
Meanwhile, the Liberal Trolls on Twitter had been calling Sen. Scott “Uncle Tim” and other racist epitaphs ever since his brilliant rebuttal to Biden’s boring speech last night.
Sen. Scott is 100% correct.
AMERICA IS NOT A RACIST COUNTRY.
However, the Liberal Democrats certainly are…including Dementia Joe, himself.
Back in February of 2007, Delaware Senator Joe Biden described his future boss, contender for the Democrat Presidential Nomination, Barack Hussein Obama, in the following manner…
I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
Liberals’ arrogance often lead them to reveal their own intolerance.
Sleepy Joe became chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the late 1980s and as Delaware Senator supported a crime bill in 1994, saying at the time that his aim was to control violent crime.
Thomas Frank, a Liberal, wrote an op ed for The Guardian back on April 15, 2016, about the unexpected results of the 1994 Crime Bill. In the article he wrote that…
…what is most shocking in our current journo-historical understanding of the Clinton years is the idea that the mass imprisonment of people of color was an “unintended consequence” of the 1994 crime bill, to quote the New York Daily News’s paraphrase of Hillary Clinton. This is flatly, glaringly false, as the final, ugly chapter of the crime bill story confirms.
Back in the early 1990s, and although they were chemically almost identical, crack and powder cocaine were regarded very differently by the law. The drug identified with black users (crack) was treated as though it were 100 times as villainous as the same amount of cocaine, a drug popular with affluent professionals. This “now-notorious 100-to-one” sentencing disparity, as the New York Times put it, had been enacted back in 1986, and the 1994 crime law instructed the US Sentencing Commission to study the subject and adjust federal sentencing guidelines as it saw fit.
The Sentencing Commission duly recommended that the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity be abolished, largely because (as their lengthy report on the subject put it) “The 100-to-1 crack cocaine to powder cocaine quantity ratio is a primary cause of the growing disparity between sentences for black and white federal defendants.” By the time their report was released, however, Republicans had gained control of Congress, and they passed a bill explicitly overturning the decision of the Sentencing Commission. (Bernie Sanders, for the record, voted against that bill.)
The bill then went to President Clinton for approval. Shortly before it came to his desk he gave an inspiring speech deploring the mass incarceration of black Americans. “Blacks are right to think something is terribly wrong,” he said on that occasion, “… when there are more African American men in our correction system than in our colleges; when almost one in three African American men, in their twenties, are either in jail, on parole, or otherwise under the supervision of the criminal system. Nearly one in three.”
Two weeks after that speech, however, Clinton blandly affixed his signature to the bill retaining the 100-to-1 sentencing disparity, a disparity that had brought about the lopsided incarceration of black people. Clinton could have vetoed it, but he didn’t. He signed it.
Today we are told that mass incarceration was an “unintended consequence” of Clinton’s deeds.
Liberal Democrats have taken the votes of Black Americans for granted for a long time now.
The Democrats, decades after the advent of LBJ’s “Great Society”, naturally assume that they are going to get the majority of black Americans’ votes in every Presidential Election.
They not only expect it, they rely on it.
However, the problem that they are attempting to overcome is the fact that Trump has made great inroads into securing some of that “expected” support from Black American Voters by being responsible for the lowest Black Unemployment Rate in American History before the Covid-19 Pandemic hit.
Candace Owens has done a great job of waking black Americans up to the reality of the Democrats’ feigned “benevolence”.
The problem that the “unintended consequences” of the 1994 Crime Bill, Biden’s racist comment to Charlemagne back in May, and his calling Trump a racist poses for the Democrats is the fact that it shows their hypocrisy.
Instead of fighting against the bill and the “sentencing disparity” which it allowed to continue unabated, Joe performed his imitation of a matador and waved it on through, allowing President Bill “Bubba” Clinton to sign it into law.
And now, unfortunately for Sleepy Joe, the progress of his obvious dementia is causing him to say things which he might be thinking out loud with no filter in between his thought process and his voice box.
Despite what the Main Stream Media and the Democrat Elite on Capitol Hill may get in front of the camera and say, a lot of Black Americans are beginning to wake up to the Plantation Mentality of the Democratic Party.
They know, that given the chance, if Trump runs in 2024, he will bring Black Unemployment back to the record lows seen before the Chinese Coronavirus hit our shores.
Watch for more allegations of Systematic Racism to be made by Biden to try to win back Black Americans.
Even with the Democrats holding the power of the political majority on Capitol Hill, they no longer have the “sure” vote of Black Americans.
And, they are desperate to get it back.

The timing of Washington Post’s latest “fact-check” on Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., which has been panned by critics, is raising questions.
Scott, who was chosen Thursday to deliver the Republican Party’s response to President Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress on April 28, was the subject of a lengthy piece by the Post’s fact-checker, Glenn Kessler.
The piece, “Tim Scott often talks about his grandfather and cotton. There’s more to that tale,” examined the “origin stories” of comments the Senator has made about being an ancestor of slaves. Scott has said his grandfather dropped out of elementary school to pick cotton, so the liberal newspaper enlisted its fact-checker to get to the bottom of the claim.
Kessler’s report was published at 3 AM, roughly 12 hours after Scott was tapped to make the GOP rebuttal against the Democratic president.
Critics slammed the fact-check as a “hit piece” against the up-and-coming Republican lawmaker that ultimately did not debunk his past claims about his ancestry.
Fox News sent multiple inquiries to Kessler about the timeline of his reporting and the timing of the published fact-check, which were forwarded to the Post’s public relations team.
The fact-checker publicly shed some light on the timeline of his reporting while responding to a critic on Twitter, who sarcastically exclaimed it was “pure coincidence” that his report came just after the senator’s major announcement.
“Actually, yes,” Kessler wrote. “I first started communicating with [Sen. Scott’s] staff about this on March 26.”
A spokesperson for The Washington Post told Fox News, “The Fact Checker began research on this story several weeks ago. As with all Post reporting, we publish when stories are ready.”
The Post did not immediately respond to Fox News’ inquiry when asking if the fact-check wasn’t “ready” until 3 AM Friday morning.
Regarding the fierce backlash the report received, the paper stood by the fact-check, telling Fox News, “The Fact Checker piece acknowledges that Sen. Tim Scott may not have known his full family history and that historical records regarding the lives of Black Americans are often scant. Nonetheless, our reporting adds information found in official records to Scott’s public remarks and writings about his grandfather. The Fact Checker occasionally delves into the origin stories of politicians, often without reaching a conclusion about their completeness or veracity.”
Scott’s office declined comment, saying he was focused on delivering the GOP response to Biden’s first speech to a joint session of Congress.
For the last several decades, Americans have witnessed the Fourth Estate, America’s Main Stream Media, slowly but surely lose their objectivity to become a Propaganda Arm for the Far Left Democratic Party.
While their reporting became decidedly one-sided, it was not a great danger to the country even though it was a completely different sort of propaganda than when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt used the Main Stream Media to support the American effort in World War II.
Then, the 1980s arrived and along with it a new era in mass communications. Cable News Networks began springing up, increasing the role of the media in our daily lives.
Because of this new role, news organizations increased in their power and their influence in our daily lives. However, with this increased role came the responsibility to fill a 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year, with new stories.
When actual new stories became hard to find, human interest stories began to fill the time, and when they ran out, news organizations decided to act like the National Enquirer and started to make news up.
Also, as the years wore on, America’s newsrooms became bastions of Liberal thought as more and more Conservatives left the business simply due to attrition and being squeezed out by young Liberal reporters who were a product of American universities which had become fountains of anti-American Political Activism.
Of course, these Liberal news reporters were members of the Democratic Party as it moved to the left of the political Spectrum. So, naturally, these reporters started reporting news more and more favorably to their political party of choice while keeping with their own personal political philosophy.
We all remember what happened when Barack Obama appeared on the political scene.
The Main Stream Media treated him as if it his appearance on the political scene was the Second Coming.
The Main Stream Media had finally become political activists instead of just political observers and pundits.
And, that is where we find ourselves today.
The Main Stream Media did everything in its power as political activists, working as the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, to keep Donald J. Trump from being reelected President of the United States of America.
Since Biden was “appointed” President, they have not even tried to hide the fact that they are nothing but a Propaganda Arm for the Far Left Democratic Party.
This was a blatant attempt by the Washington Post to discredit Senator Scott.
As I wrote yesterday, Biden is a dementia-riddled, doddering old man whom Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrat Elite are desperately trying to keep in office for as long as they possibly can.
By trying to damage Senator Tim Scott, Glenn Kessler and the Washington Post were trying to cover for Biden’s ineptitude by harming Scott’s credibility.
Unfortunately for them, just as with Biden’s Address, Americans are questioning the timing of their hit piece.
Propagandists gotta propagandize.
