Joe Biden

Plantation Massa Joe Biden

Biden’s slip was a perfect illustration of exactly the way liberal elites regard the black community.

Every once in a rare while, the stage masks behind which Democrats hide drop – and reality appears. So it was this week when former Vice President Joe Biden beamed into radio’s Charlamagne tha God from his basement. Rolling Stone has called Charlamagne “hip hop’s Howard Stern”, and he is famous for bluntly asking questions of on-air of guests or saying things to them that other hosts would never ask or say.

Example? When Senator Elizabeth Warren appeared on his show, she of the phony Indian heritage claim, CNN reported that he “compared Warren to Rachel Dolezal, a woman who was born white but pretended to be black.”

Thus it was that Joe Biden ventured forth electronically for a chat with Charlamagne. And, accidentally to be sure, allowing the mask behind which left-wing Democrats always hide to drop. It went like this.

Charlamagne began grilling Biden on his record with the black community. Eventually, an exasperated Biden abruptly said – really – this:

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

And in a blink, right there was the mindset that Democrat elites have towards the black community – and for that matter towards Hispanics, women and in this day and age, gays.

As I have often said over the years, Democrats are the Party of Race. Literally this is a political party that was founded by slave owners. When it got into the business of writing political platforms every four years for its presidential candidates, a practice that is now standard for both parties but began with Democrats in 1840, Democrats would go on to spend their first six platforms defending slavery. At the close of the Civil War, Democrats opposed Abraham Lincoln’s successful push for the 13th amendment that ended slavery, not to mention opposing the 14th amendment (which gave blacks due process) and the 15th amendment (which gave them the right to vote.) They went on to write another 20 platforms after that supporting segregation.

In other words, the political game for Democrats was to get voters to identify their race with Democrats. In the beginning it was Southern whites. Eventually the game was played with blacks, women, and, as I said, gays. It is a strategy that is alive and well today as they use the son of segregation, identity politics, to insist that Group X must be for Democrats because of their skin color or gender or sexual preference.

Thus it is that chatting away with a skeptical Charlamagne, Biden blurts the obvious – to Biden. Which is: if you are black, that is synonymous with being a Democrat, and in this case a Democrat who supports Joe Biden.

This is, in fact, the ultimate in plantation politics. In this case, it means that Charlamagne cannot possibly be an individual with his own thoughts and views. No, in Massa Joe’s view, Charlamagne is just another black guy on the liberal plantation, and so, in an unguarded moment, Biden blurts:

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

The Biden problem? By now there are enough people out there – including Charlamagne – who are not going to sit still and be judged by racial stereotypes. And so, to a baffled Joe Biden, of a sudden his remarks, a seriously accurate reflection of the Left’s view of African-Americans, has suddenly exploded into controversy. Fox reported the blowback this way:

“After the interview, Charlamagne tha God retweeted criticism of Biden. The Breakfast Club’s Twitter account also put up a poll asking followers if they agree with Biden’s comments — and out of nearly 40,000 votes, 89.6 percent of respondents disagreed with the remarks.

The “you ain’t black” comment also reverberated on social media, igniting blowback from black Republicans.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., said such “arrogant and condescending” comments are not surprising considering Biden’s record in “sponsoring a crime bill in the 1990s that jailed more African-American males than any other legislation.” He called it the “most arrogant, outrageous comment that I’ve heard in a very long time.”

The blowback was swift and intense. Fox noted:

“Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said that Biden’s comments were ‘truly offensive but a rare and honest insight into liberals’ thinking. Liberals believe you really can’t be black, Latino, female, or intelligent unless you support their liberal agenda,’ he said.”

Too late, Biden realized his mistake, and said this in a phone call with black leaders:

“I shouldn’t have been such a wise guy. I should not have been so cavalier. I was much too cavalier. I know that the comments have come off like I was taking the African American vote for granted but nothing could be further from the truth. I’ve never, never, ever taken the African American community for granted.”

Too late. Biden’s slip was a perfect illustration of exactly the way liberal elites regard the black community.

And you wonder why more and more black Americans are joining Candace Owens in the “Blexit” movement? Owens described Blexit this way:

“Blexit is a Renaissance,” Owens told Fox News, giving the backstory behind the campaign she launched over the weekend. “Blexit is the black exit from the Democratic Party. It’s the black exit from permanent victimhood, the black exit from the false idea that we are somehow separate from the rest of America.”

Exactly. And Biden’s slip of the unguarded truth says all one needs to know about just why Blexit exists in the first place.
