Jeff Davidson: Joe Biden, Man of the People

As Joe Biden’s administration continues to crumble and his grasp on realty seems ever more distant, it’s a revelation to know that some people think he’s doing a fine job as leader of the U.S. and, by extension, the free world.

Consider my sister. She has a Ph.D. in psychology and is a counselor with offices in New York and New Haven. She can discuss at length literature, sociology, human relations, movies, and so on. As is typical with those on the Left, her political blind spots are beyond glaring.

In my sister’s world, Joe Biden has served with distinction during his 48 years in Washington. He never took money for pay-to-play schemes from China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Romania, or Ukraine and certainly did not take bribes over at the last two decades. According to my sister, the thoroughly corrupt Biden family has never profited by even one dime – not Hunter, not James – as a result of Joe’s position as vice president and, before that as a senator.

Keep in mind, many of the alleged 81,000,000 or so ‘voters’ for Biden are like my sister. Inextricably ensconced in the liberal media bubble, they are steadfast in ‘what they know.’ They could easily visit alternative news sites for greater perspective, but they never do, thus creating a self-imposed information iron curtain.

In my sister’s world, Joe Biden never cheated in college, and didn’t plagiarize. He didn’t support the 1994 crime bill which essentially made black males walking targets. In her world, Joe Biden never uttered a racial comment that was less than desirable, and certainly never said things such as:

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” (May, 2020); “Poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids,” (August, 2019); “We’ve got to recognize that the kid wearing a hoodie may very well be the next poet laureate and not a gangbanger,” (June, 2019); “They’re gonna put y’all back in chains.” (August, 2012); Obama is “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean,” (February, 2007); and so many other such statements…
