Biden Fux Up On Black Radio Show

He’s trending on Twitter for saying

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black!”

On The Breakfast Club.

by Anonymousreply 4279 hours ago

Oh no, trending on Twitter, well his life is over now, obviously. RIP Joe Biden, died because someone on Twitter took something out of context and created a hashtag about it.

Thanks for alerting us to this massive breaking news, OP.

[R5] No, he isn't "right."

Of course he’s better than trump, but insulting voters is always a dumb thing to do. He should apologize. He shouldn’t have gone on that show anyway. Charlamagne is always trying to trick politicians into saying stupid stuff and I can’t remember any time a politician went on his show and came out looking better.

These moderates really need to stop shittiing in their own beds and stop bending ass over backwards for the enemy time and time again. Black people always overwhelmingly vote democrat. Go after the white voters who keep voting in their own self interests. Tell them if they vote for Trump they aren't real men and women. Why don't you tell the fucking truth ON THAT for a change.

R40 you need to read David Garrow’s exhaustively researched biography of Obama. Obama had basically no real contact with the black community until he went to Chicago to be an organizer. It was always a huge source of frustration and insecurity for Obama. He knew so little about African American history growing up that he didn’t even know how to pronounce W.E.B Du Bois’s name. He pronounced it French like DuBois in “Streetcar.” Garrow even strongly insinuates that Obama left his (iirc) half-white/half-Asian longtime girlfriend and married Michelle because he was looking for credibility in the black community for a political career and felt he needed a black wife for that. Obama’s relationship with the African American community is extraordinarily complicated. And yes, when Obama speaks a certain way in front of black audiences (or writes about himself in a certain way in his “Dreams” memoir) it’s an act, or at least it’s not true to who he is/was

She said it something like a decade before that in another interview, and said it's good for your health.

I couldn't watch more than a minute or two of the Biden interview; I was cringing too much. He really is a socially inappropriate person. But I'll still vote for him. I'd vote for a yellow dog before I'd vote for a Republican, let alone the Orange Dictator.

If he hadn't won South Carolina, he would have had to drop out.

South Carolina gave him the win that he needed. It gave him momentum and allowed him to go on to win the other states, and eventually the primary.

Are you fucking serious?

There is no choice in my opinion. If we want to save this once-great country from becoming a quasi-dictatorship (and believe me, if you think Trump is bad now, wait till he gets re-elected. All bets are off at that point - forget shooting someone on Fifth Avenue - he'll stroll through the gates of Fort Knox and load up his personal trucks with gold bullion), then we vote for Biden and Democrats down ballot.

Ok. I was upset with Joe over this... and then I remember how Black people constantly yank "Black cards" away from other Blacks because those Black people don't "toe the line" either. Like DIamond & Silk or Kanye West. My "blackness" has been questioned throughout my life because I spoke proper english, I don't always listen to R&B and hip hop, and apparently because I have too much money (seriously!). So did Joe say something dumb? Absolutely. But to chastise him for something Blacks do ALL THE DAMN TIME is really ridiculous.

R123, a couple of things:

1) Neither Bernie or the other one would do an interview with black media

2) Black people, for the most part, understand that Biden was speaking in a common vernacular and are nonplussed because of his history with the culture. Neither of the other two have that affiliation.

3) Part of the "gaff" is that Joe said it out loud in jest, not that it's wrong. Far right and far left don't jest...that's kinda why we don't like them.

4) Most of the outrage is from the right trying to cover for themselves. If either of the other two had said it, the left would not so much be outraged as just adding it to the list of missteps from the extremes.

5) As has been said over and over, the people who stayed home in 2016 were not enthused about Hillary, black, white and everything in-between

Bloomberg, Steyer & Hickenloopoer realized that money can't buy you an election.

Yang (my candidate!) realized it was going to be too difficult for him to get over the 15% threshold in any state. And he's a successful Asian, so he doesn't buy into the Far Left POC oppression narrative.

Harris' past as a Prosecutor was catching up to her.

Mayor Pete isn't woke or gay enough. And he's too similar to Biden.

Booker doesn't have the national support & he's got Big Pharma in his pocket.

Gabbard is a Russia bot, according to Lefty Twitter.

Beto O'Rourke finally stopped making running for elected office his new profession.

Still trying to figure out why Deval Patrick even tried.

Gillibrand never had a chance after her MeToo debacle over Franken.

deBlasio is just fucking deBlasio.

Klobuchar realized she wasn't going to make it over the 15% threshold either and she was too similar to Biden.

Warren had a chance but her Republican past caught up with her.

That left Sanders. He has the support of young people & his grassroots game was amazing. His wins out West & his support with Hispanic voters was admirable. But you can't win the election when your support is no more than 30% of the vote. And Sanders would've run away with the candidacy if he only kept the same number of voters that he did from 2016. He didn't and that was a problem in itself. Also Klobuchar, Buttigieg & Biden were the same candidate. Once they merged into one, that was about 40% of the vote right there.

Sorry folks, but there's no conspiracy or back room dealing here... at least not in this campaign year. This isn't 2016 anymore. Voters are making these choices, plain & simple. The Sanders supporters are going to have to understand this.

I've noticed an increasing attitude among young black voters that the Democrats don't really *do* anything to win over the black vote. At most they kind of/sort of/not really hold back some of the worst Republican attacks on the black community, but that's cold comfort when there was a massive deflation of black wealth (as meager as it was before 2008) under Obama. Obama did NOTHING to prevent black people from being eviscerated by the foreclosure crisis.

I think they have a point about how useless the Democrats are in that respect and that the reason behind the Dems' uselessness is that they take the black vote for granted.

So, in short, regardless if Biden thought he was being funny, this was not the right time or place for it. I also doubt he would have said it if his brain weren't melting.

The other candidates weren't given much of a chance, because a sizeable number were convinced before he even entered the race that Biden was the only one who could beat Trump. And there was no changing their minds.

Biden hasn't had an Obama or Bill Clinton moment yet, where people truly start to connect to him. A majority of his goodwill is simply based upon how people felt about Obama and simply wanting to get the current occupant out of office. Biden is practically an afterthought in his own campaign.

We're in uncharted territory. There's never been an election in recent memory where the candidate has already stated from the outset that they probably wouldn't be running a second. term if they get in. And yet people are still going around saying that it doesn't matter who his VP pick is. It's ridiculous, because this person is going to have to take over the mantle of the Presidency without a doubt at some point. You kind of want someone in there that will connect with the public and help the democrats win another term.

Primary over, sorry, that part is done. No, sorry, nobody gets a do-over. Now it's Joe.

And yes, a big thing going into this election is that Trump is a loud mouthed fuckwit who cannot govern for shit and proves that every single day of his presidency.

And no, Joe will not be leading a revolution, but the party itself has moved left and I believe he will be somewhat left of Obama in his policies. Not sure, but at this point that is the best anyone can hope for. Maybe there'll be a an actual revolutionary nominee in 2024, but not in 2020.

Democrats know he's incompetent, and have known that for the last three years. Move on already. It's not breaking news anymore. Most of us already knew this before he took office.

What we need to concentrate on is how we're going to get out of this pandemic, this economic downturn. What are we going to do about jobs, about health insurance?

Well, he needs to get out there and outline what they will be. And his hardcore supporters need to do a better job of promoting him. Because the last candidate who ran mostly on being better than the current occupant was John Kerry. And we saw how that turned out.

The more Biden gets out there when he's on his own the more he will come across as a fumbling old man not quite sure of what he's saying and doddering about. Despite being the worst most hateful president in history(and I would have given that to Nixon!) I think Trump might really have a chance. Things are not going to get better for Biden simply because there is nothing he can do about aging. The pressures of the campaign will hasten it. And when Trump turns it into the most nasty ugly onslaught in campaign history wizened Joe might be blown away like a feather.

An offensive comment by the Democratic presidential candidate is a reminder that black people – all people – deserve better than Joe Biden

I'm very tired of Joe Biden. My vote for him was already hanging by a thread before his disastrous interview with Charlamagne tha God on Friday. Interrupting the Breakfast Club host’s explanation that black people needed assurances that our communities will benefit from his presidency, Biden asserted: “If you’ve got a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or for Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Again, I am very tired of Joe Biden. Not because I am a purist, or have inflexible ideological commitments of what it will take to remove Donald Trump from office. But rather because Biden’s condescension towards black communities is intolerable.

Everyone on here howling about Trump and accusing everyone who has any divergent opinion of being a Russian Bot, Bernie supporter, etc. is missing the point. Moral hazard is how the man got in the White House in the first place. Disgruntled Bernie-ites weren't the issue: it was elitist liberals who couldn't be bothered to understand how the other half lives, & thus the high likelihood they needed to get out & vote. [The 1% media wouldn't deign to set their Manolos on heartland soil, either. Frankly, I think they wanted him in to save their industry (which it did).]

If Biden keeps this up, he will become unpalatable to specific groups who won't turn out to vote in numbers they otherwise would if he was unexceptional, but able to keep his foot out of his mouth. They won't vote for Trump, they'll just stay home.

That means whoever has the most fanatical base has a better chance of winning. Considering the pandemic hasn't hit rural mid-country areas as hard, Trump's horrific response won't carry as much weight, & that could bode ill.

No, the problem in 2016 was not the "liberal elite."

The upper level of income voted almost 50/50 Trump/Clinton, with only a slight favoring of Trump. The big difference was with middle income Americans, $50K to $100K annual income, who voted significantly for Trump over Clinton.

Several exit polls have shown that it was voters in states like Michigan and Pennsylvania who sat out or voted third party who swung the election, and they weren't the "elitist liberals."

I agree with what you say about the media wanting Trump to win, but I would argue many of those in the media aren't really liberal even if they portray themselves as such.

Perfection politics. I'll give you Anita Hill--he made a huge mistake. The crime bill was seen as very necessary, including to many black people in Washington. The Black caucus supported the bill. It's true part of the bills look bad today but that is TODAY. It wasn't really seen that way at the time. The spin about the crime bill is like the spin about how Clinton is homophobic for passing Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Context is being completely ignored. Regarding him being friends with segregationists, why do you think Biden is so well-liked and is able to actually pass bills in congress? Sorry, as deplorable as the racists/segregationists are, you sometimes HAVE to work with deplorable people to get shit passed. That's how it is.

Yes, it’s true that Biden is better than Trump for African Americans and the nation, but it’s quiet lazy and ineffective for this to be your main campaign pitch. Hillary thought outrage or discomfort with Trump, and being “not Trump” would be enough to propel her to victory. But a lot of potential voters are prone to stay home and not vote unless you ignite a compelling reason for them to vote. A significant percentage of the Democratic base is prone to stay home unless they find a candidate to be worth their electoral energy and commitment.

[R381] That's all well and good but black people comprise only 12-13% of the U.S. population - though you wouldn't know it based on the saturation media coverage of black outrage and black issues. The Dems need to keep their critical black constituency made as hell during election cycles for them to have any chance of winning. Thus, any Dems challenger must necessarily be branded "a racist" whether there's a basis to that assertion or not. And it works.

by Anonymousreply 383Last Sunday at 9:52 AM

Oh, I don't think this will work r383. A lot of white people will pretend to be outraged on behalf of black people, and I don't think they will buy it, especially since a lot of those white people will be horrible racists themselves. I think this will fizzle. And yeah, you can't just win with only black votes, but getting them to turn out makes a big difference in close states, like here in Wisconsin. I think they will turn out to turn out Trump. He is truly hated in a way few presidents have been.

by Anonymousreply 384Last Sunday at 9:55 AM

[R384] It's absolutely true that no Dem can win without a large majority of the black vote. That fact informs a huge part of the political discourse in the U.S., both overtly and covertly. If blacks support were evenly split between the parties - or at least not so lopsided - the landscape of American politics would be radically different, along with the tenor of political debate.

r410 bigotry doesn't have to be shouted or said with a sneer to be bigotry.

If you choose to call it "silly" that's totally fair, but it doesn't change what it is. The hundreds of anti-gay "jokes" I've been subjected to over the table at gatherings of my low end family weren't aggressive, but they were just as bigoted at heart as a serious argument over gay marriage.

Aging people's cognitive functions decline, including maintaining social niceties, so there's nothing you can do about it. Accepting that reality shouldn't morph into saying it's not bigoted or they're harmless--many can & do vote.

Both of them are elitist, bigoted old white men. It is what it is. It's OK to say Trump is destroying our country & has to be stopped without denying how problematic Biden is.

Biden that, 'No one should have to vote for any party based on their race, their religion, their background,' on a conference call with the U.S. Black Chamber of Commerce Friday afternoon.

My vote for him was already hanging by a thread before his disastrous interview with Charlamagne tha God on Friday. Interrupting the Breakfast Club host’s explanation that black people needed assurances that our communities will benefit from his presidency, Biden asserted: “If you’ve got a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or for Trump, then you ain’t black.” Again, I am very tired of Joe Biden. Not because I am a purist, or have inflexible ideological commitments of what it will take to remove Donald Trump from office.
