Like Obama, Like Biden: Let the Seeds of Racial Division Be Sewn; At Every Concocted Opportunity

Barack Hussein Obama went about the business of sewing seeds of racial division from the moment he became president. Now, just four years after he left office, his former vice president, now president-elect Joe Biden, is dutifully following in his divisive footsteps.


Before we leave Obama, let’s take a quick trip down Racial Division Lane.

In July 2009, after the arrest of black Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. by a white police officer made headlines, Obama rushed to the conclusion that the Cambridge, Mass., police department had acted “stupidly.” When that blew up in his face, Obama said he didn’t mean to imply that the arresting officer, Sergeant James Crowley, was stupid, just that the entire situation was “stupid.”

So why did the leader of the free world feel compelled to inject himself in a minor local law-enforcement issue? Because Gates was black and Crowley was white, of course.

Then we had the 2012 shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by neighborhood-watch volunteer George Zimmerman. As we’ve seen multiple times since, the Left and their liberal media sock puppets immediately declared Zimmerman a murderer. Obama “famously” said: “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.”

A year later, Zimmer was acquitted of all charges.

And of course Ferguson, Missouri, and Michael Brown, the black 18-year-old who was shot and killed by white police officer Darren Wilson in 2014. As was the case with Trayvon Martin, Obama sung the praises of Michael Brown. Night after night of burning, looting, and more killing ensued. Wilson was not charged, nor did he face charges as the result of a re-investigation in 2020.


The bottom line: America was more racially-divided the day Obama left office than the day he entered it— and at any time since at least the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.

Exit Obama, enter Biden.

While the “highlight” of Biden’s presidential campaign was his ill-informed “you ain’t black” blast, directed at “uppity” blacks who were either pro-Trump or undecided, the old Democrat never misses an opportunity to pander himself silly.

As the Columbia Bugle noted:

“Philadelphia, like so many cities before it this summer, was a vision of America under Antifa/BLM/Democrat rule. Joe Biden kneels before the mob, emboldening them. His party makes excuses for them and cheers them on. His White House will be their doormat.”

I don’t know about “doormat,” but the Black Lives Matter movement will find a more-than-willing partner in Joe Biden.


Ah, and that special moment during the presidential campaign when ol’ Joe spotted an American flag and dropped to one knee — and obvious photo-op.

And then there was Thursday. Less than 24 hours after the despicable breach of the U.S. Capitol Building by fringe Trump supporters, Biden tweeted this:

No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protestors yesterday that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol.

We all know that’s true — and it’s unacceptable.

What “we all know,” Joe, is just as your former boss’s stooge Rahm Emanuel admonished Democrats, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” Shame on you for that.

With all due “respect,” Biden’s tweet was pathetic. Exploiting the behavior of a fringe group by placing blame on Trump supporters as a whole is bad enough; injecting race where it is not is even more despicable. Particularly when he did so solely for the purpose of sewing seeds of racial divisiveness.


The hypocrisy is mindblowing. How many times throughout the months of rioting did Biden defend the “peaceful protesters”? How many times did he point out that the BLM thugs and Antifa anarchists were not representative of the protesters as a whole?

Yet, when it comes to Trump and Trump supporters, Biden flips the script. Exactly as his former boss, Barack “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon” Obama, taught him to do.
