Handsy Joe To Blacks: I’m From The Government, And We’re Here To Control You, Er, Help You

Well, you had to know that Joe Biden was going to release a “plan” to patronize the black community, right? Because that’s what Democrats do. What they’ve been doing since the 1970’s, when the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, and segregation realized that they couldn’t continue to block blacks from everything, so they found another way to attempt to keep blacks down, while also figuring out a way to get their votes. Pander to them, give them money, crappy housing, and you know all the rest. Joe is Here To Help

Lift Every Voice: The Biden Plan for Black America

Among the greatest honors of my life was a trip I took to Memphis in October of 2018 to visit the National Civil Rights Museum and receive the institution’s annual Freedom Award. While I was there, I had a chance to stand on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel where Dr. King was assassinated half a century earlier, and reflect on all of the progress we’d made — and that which we hadn’t — in the years since that unbearable day. (snip)

Fifty-two years later, his charge remains as vital as it was that night. We have made extraordinary strides along so many fronts — but for African American families, we have not yet made America what it ought to be. The truth is, African Americans can never have a fair shot at the American Dream so long as entrenched disparities are still allowed to chip away at opportunity. You don’t have an equal chance when your schools are substandard, when your home is undervalued, when your car insurance costs more for no good reason, or when the poverty rate for African Americans is more than twice what it is for whites.

Which is interesting, since it was and still are the policies of Democrats that cause this. Who runs the schools? Democrats. It’s Democrats who try and keep blacks in their own squalid, government run neighborhoods. After 50 years of trying to get so many blacks out of poverty through government help, it’s interesting that Trump comes in and the black unemployment rate, which grew under Obama, dropped quite a bit and earnings have gone up. It’s better when government enables rather than government controls.

This is not a new priority for me — tackling systemic racism and fighting for civil rights is what brought me to public service as a local councilman in the years just after Dr. King’s death, and it has been a driving force throughout my career ever since. I was proud to fight against discriminatory school district funding and housing practices in my own community as a young man — and prouder still of the work I did in the U.S. Senate, co-sponsoring the Civil Rights Act of 1990 to protect against employment discrimination, leading efforts to reauthorize and extend the Fair Housing Act, and spearheading multiple reauthorizations of the Voting Rights Act to protect African Americans’ right to vote.

Sure you did, Joe, sure you did. Anyhow, let’s see his minuscule plan (below the fold)

Here we go

Today, I’m releasing a new plan to achieve equity for the African American community and take us one step closer to making America what it ought to be. The six pillars of my plan are as follows:

  • Advance the economic mobility of African Americans and close the racial wealth and income gap by investing in African American workers, businesses, and communities, and expanding African American homeownership and wealth building;
  • Expand access to high-quality education and tackle racial inequity in our education system by investing in universal preschool, closing funding gaps by race, making college affordable, and tackling the student debt crisis;
  • End health disparities by making far-reaching investments, expanding access to affordable health care, improving the quality of care African Americans receive, and making health equity a reality for African Americans;
  • Strengthen America’s commitment to justice by ending incarceration for drug use alone, reducing the number of people incarcerated, reinvesting those savings in communities affected by mass incarceration, and addressing systemic misconduct in police departments and prosecutors’ offices;
  • Make the right to vote and the right to equal protection real for African Americans by dramatically expanding the Department of Justice’s ability to fight voter suppression and gerrymandering, bringing the full force of the federal government’s authority to confront voter disinformation efforts targeting African Americans, and appointing a federal judiciary that looks like America;
  • Address environmental justice by making historic investments, enforcing environmental justice legislation, and ensuring that African Americans are dealt in on the country’s clean energy future.

He’s here to help. One has to wonder why blacks buy into this: it’s Democrats who have kept them in squalid areas with poor schools and economic opportunities. I guess the payoffs have been working.

For too long, African Americans have not been adequately dealt into the middle class. We’re going to fix that by passing the Paycheck Fairness Act and ending unequal pay, getting our essential workers the pay, protections, and dignity they deserve, strengthening public and private sector unions, and raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour. We’ll provide high-quality, universal pre-K for every three- and four-year old in America, so that every child gets off to a good start — and close the funding gap between white and non-white school districts to ensure that African American families can thrive across generations. We’ll tackle the student debt crisis — which disproportionately burdens African Americans — make public colleges and universities tuition-free for families with incomes below $125,000, and invest more than $70 billion in HBCUs and minority-serving institutions to equip the next generation of African American professionals to succeed.

Fight for $15 will just mean fewer jobs. Pre-K means blacks are captured by government earlier. Student debt? Which party runs almost all the colleges and creates those high costs? “Disproportionately burdens African Americans? Apparently, Joe has a rather low opinion of black people. But, then, this is nothing knew for Democrats, who do not think blacks can succeed without a massive helping of Big Government.

….We need to restore the Voting Rights Act….

Some should explain to Joe that the VRA is still in effect. It still exists. Not sure if this means he’s losing his faculties or just trying to dupe blacks. Joe was VP for Obama for eight years. So much of this same stuff was implemented under Obama: why didn’t it work? If Joe was so passionate about all this, why didn’t he do it during those 8 years?

    You forgot slavery.

  2. Kye says:

    No one and no organization in America has done more damage to the black race, the black man, the black family than the Democrats. First they enslaved them with chains on plantations now they enslave them with welfare in ghettos. Same thing, different names.

    Then the Democrats run around screaming how “we” owe the blacks for past discrimination. We my ass, it’s THEY who owe blacks and I suggest every single Democrat be taxed 50% of their ill-gotten assets to pay as reparations for the evil they brought down on the black race.

    Trump 2020 Make the Dems pay for their slavery.

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach (and every Connie) asks: One has to wonder why blacks buy into this: it’s Democrats who have kept them in squalid areas with poor schools and economic opportunities. I guess the payoffs have been working.

    Connies just can’t understand why only white Christians support their party. It’s easiest for Connies to just assume that non-whites are either too stupid or too easily bought to vote in what Connies think is the non-white self-interest, that is for GOPhers.

    Is it possible that since the GOP has become the home of the right-wing, that perhaps it’s modern far-right conservatism that non-whites distrust? What would Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, LGBTQs, Jews, atheists hope to gain by supporting today’s GOP?

      Well 50 center since the White Nationalist make up about 1 percent of the right. Is it possible that your terrorist buddies who are Muslims represent the left?

      Is it possible that MS-13 who is Hispanic represent the left?

      Is it possible that Jews gathering against the law in NY and against your coveted lock down orders represent the left?

      Is it possible that Oct 12, 2019 · At CNN’s LGBT town hall on Thursday, Biden advocated for a registry of all religious organizations that won’t toe the line of the radical gay agenda.

      Is it possible that your gropin Joe wants a registry of all Christians who dont buy into the lefts radical LGBTQ agenda.

      Explain your side before you try to explain the right. You 50 cent tin horn who doesnt even understand American Politics.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Klem,

        This was the question:

        Why do Blacks, LGBTQs, Hispanics, Muslims, Jews avoid the GOP like the tRump Plague?

        Connies whine that they only attract white Christians. How do you explain that?

        • KlemDadidlehopper says:

          That was your question.

          I simply asked you a similar question:

          Well 50 center since the White Nationalist make up about 1 percent of the right. Is it possible that your terrorist buddies who are Muslims represent the left?

          Is it possible that MS-13 who is Hispanic represent the left?

          And let me add one, does a few black people killing Police officers make up what the LEFT stands for?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Klem,

        You’re not denying that the GOP has become the party of the right-wing have you?

        Can you name a moderate GOPher (Whig, RINO, etc)?

        • Kye says:

          Being as politically blind as a bat Elwood you may not have noticed that there is no “right wing” or “conservatives” any longer. The new paradigm which has existed since Newspeak Magazine proclaimed: “We Are All Socialists Now” is the radical left led by commies like you, AOC and Nazi Pelousy and EVERYBODY ELSE! So yes, we are denying the GOP has become the party of the right wing. It’s become the party of the not crazy-azzed loony Moonbat leftists.

          We now call ourselves “normies” being the only people in American politics that even approach normalcy and rationality. All you people have is Orange Man Bad, hate, envy and a multitude of vulgarities from abortion to Stinky-Fingers Biden.

          “Can you name a moderate GOPher (Whig, RINO, etc)?”

          Sure we can there’s a shit load of them. As you noted they are RINO’s. Now can you name one moderate Democrat who is not for unrestricted abortion, universal healthcare, open borders and what now appears the ability to close businesses and toss employees in the street? Just one will do.

          As this article plainly explains so even you can understand:
          https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/06/could-media-please-stop-publishing-the-exact-same-nevertrump-column-over-and-over-again/

          You keep saying the same shit and repeating it over and over.

          Trump 2020 Because “crazy” should not define the WH

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Kye,

            The truth DOES often seem repetitive.

            Moderate Dems? Almost all. Universal healthcare is supported by most Americans. The majority of Americans are pro-choice. Few Dems are for open borders. In times of national emergencies elected officials have powers that you may not like but that are legal. For example the president ordered meat processing employees back to work, even with hundreds infected with SARS-CoV-2. If you don’t like the laws, have them changed.

            Don’t you have Medicare? Why shouldn’t everyone?

        • KlemDadidlehopper says:

          TRUMP is a moderate.

          No far left conservative would have even shut down the country over this covid-19. We didn’t shut down the country over the bird flu under Obama nor did we shut down the country for the hong kong flu or the spanish flu.

          Why did we shut down the country 50 center. Because China panicked. Or did they. Did they release this on the world on purpose, then shut down their country and put on this gigantic display aided by the WHO who is bought and paid for by the COMMUNIST PARTY of CHINA.

          Was it really that bad. What did China have to lose by losing 3 or 6 months of GDP. They dont owe their people shit. WHY did CHINA BUY UP THE WORLDS PPE while proclaiming this was nothing?

          To instill panic.

          So 50 center your not arguing the fact that the left has become far left communists because you have bought hook, line and sinker the CCP of CHINA’s talking points about COVID-19 including defending CHINA and trashing your own country.

          A moderate no longer exists in the party of Kennedy. Biden will pretend to be one until elected and then he will be so far left as to make Stalin look like he was a member of the John Birch Society.

    • formwiz says:

      Hmmm, Trump is running 40% support by black and Hispanics. Maybe the right R finally came along.

      But that would mean Presidents Humphrey, McGovern, Mondale, Dukakamimi, Gore, Lurch, and Hildabeast never existed.

      Is it possible that since the GOP has become the home of the right-wing, that perhaps it’s modern far-right conservatism that non-whites distrust? What would Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, LGBTQs, Jews, atheists hope to gain by supporting today’s GOP?

      Last I looked, ACDEFHIJKMNOPRSUVWXYZLGBTQs, Jews, and atheists were mostly white.

      And what they’d hope to gain than a better deal than they get from the Demos.

        Not minorities, Democrats.

  5. Kye says:

    Who, other than you and the propagandists who program you, says GOPhers want fewer Americans to vote? Name one GOPpher who said that. One. Give us the quote or admit you’re lying.

    The Gop, like any intelligent citizen wants our elections run honestly, therefore we want QUALIFIED Americans to vote. You got a problem with that? Why? You guys are the ones always looking for some angle to steal votes.

    Trump 2020 Stop the leftists from voter fraud!!!!!

    You always resort to lies when cornered or we’re racccccists.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye,

      You are either naïve or dishonest.

      Why would GOPhers admit to suppressing the vote? Because it favors GOP candidates.

      The last two Republican presidents received fewer votes than their opponent. In state after state Democrats receive more total votes but GOPhers are sent to the state Houses and Senates. GOPhers hate the rule of the people, favoring rule by Republicans.

      Every action they take is to suppress the vote. Voter ID laws to cure imaginary voter fraud suppresses the vote. Restrictions in voting hours suppresses the vote. Closing polling places suppresses the vote. If we can file our taxes online or by mail, why not vote the same way? The EC favors conservatives/GOPhers.

      GOPhers whine about voter fraud (which hardly exists) when their real objective is to keep Democratic voters home.

      We applaud the effectiveness of the GOP machine in controlling the nation. From the precinct level to the WH they’ve put in place a system for minority rule. Kudos.

      • Kye says:

        I am neither naïve nor dishonest, but you seem to not care about the sanctity of the vote. Neither I nor any “GOPher” I’ve known or run across wants to “suppress” anyone’s vote unlike you lefties who seem to think the only votes that should count are Democrat votes.

        As usual when last we had this discussion I produced ample proof of voter fraud, mostly by Democrats, and as usual after time goes by you either ignore the proof or just “forget” about it.

        Why don’t you start here today and perhaps introduce another view into your myopic life?:
        https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/04/stealing_the_election_in_plain_sight.html

        That won’t get you thinking or considering other’s point of view because you don’t like the origin of the article, American Thinker. After all they think like Americans and that won’t fukin’ do for you. You as a leftist believe we are like you in that we would lie just to make a point. Funny thing is we don’t have to. That’s why you get triggered and need safe spaces and we don’t. But I digress. Next try reading this tid-bit:
        https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/04/progressives-want-mail-voting-j-christian-adams-0/

        I have more if you need them but I know regardless of a million anecdotes and the testimony of seeing vote fraud WITH MY OWN EYES nothing will deter you from believing what you want to gain and keep your power. Or ignorance, whichever.

        Sometimes I think you enjoy being in a dream world of your virtue and perfection and our evil. Kinda keeps you going thinking we are all evil and most likely you want us all dead. That’s how socialism traditionally works, isn’t it?

        Irrelevant. Vote totals for a state have nothing to do with individual districts. And the Electoral College is the way we elect Presidents.

        Don’t like it? Don’t let the door hit ya.

        Oh, does that mean calling off the primary entirely the way Don Cuomo did? Does it mean shutting down the state until the day after the primary, the way Governor Blackface did?

        BTW Restrictions in voting hours? Yeah, you can’t wheel in all those illegal ballots when people are watching.

        GOPhers whine about voter fraud (which hardly exists) when their real objective is to keep Democratic voters home.

        At least 7 million fraudulent votes in ’16. 16 million votes went missing in ’16 and ’18. Demo pols bragging on camera that they couldn’t win without vote fraud.

        And how does any of this, especially purging corpses and people who’ve moved out of state, keep Demos from voting?

        And, again, you’re the one who’s whining.

        We applaud the effectiveness of the GOP machine in controlling the nation. From the precinct level to the WH they’ve put in place a system for minority rule. Kudos.

        No, that’s your thing.

        This time, however, we’ll go even farther beyond the margin of fraud.

        The longer Democrat governors and mayor keep their jurisdictions shut down, the angrier the people will get.

    You’re a liar. Completely and unequivocally.

    You had a chance for socialized medicine and nobody wanted it. Most Americans have seen the light on abortion and are against it (damned ultrasound). Most Demos loved open borders until Flu Manchu came along. And we’ll see how many of these stay at home orders are legal as the hit the courts.

    Don’t you have Medicare? Why shouldn’t everyone?

    Because most Americans aren’t on a fixed income of $1000 a month. Medicare For All is a loser for even most Demos.
