Biden Is No Bastion of Virtue or Integrity
The veteran politico is infamous for slimy tactics, including lying about Michael Brown.
Joe Biden’s presidential campaign message in a nutshell is “vote for me, because I’m not Donald Trump.” Ever since Trump’s surprise defeat of Hillary Clinton, the mainstream media, political pundits, and Beltway intellectuals have moaned ad nauseam over how awful he is. “He’s lowered the dignity of the office,” they say. “He’s the worst president the nation has ever had,” they scream. And on and on the negative sentiments go.
In fact, no president in modern history has experienced even remotely the amount of negative coverage by the MSM as has Trump. So despised is Trump by the Leftmedia that reporters no longer even attempt to feign any semblance of objective journalism, all their phony “fact-checks” notwithstanding. They have essentially (and in some cases literally) declared that resisting Trump is the only morally acceptable position one can take.
The irony in all this is the old white man the Democrat Party propped up as the man to defeat Trump and bring back “normalcy” to Washington is one of the Swamp’s slimiest politicians over the last 50 years. Biden is more than a creepy, hair-sniffing gaffe machine. He’s a documented serial liar. And his habit of uttering falsehoods hasn’t stopped.
What makes the latest nasty fib so objectionable is the fact that it was Barack Obama’s own Justice Department that debunked it. Biden recently wrote on social media, “It’s been six years since Michael Brown’s life was taken in Ferguson — reigniting a movement. We must continue the work of tackling systemic racism and reforming policing.” His newly chosen running mate, Kamala Harris, followed his lead, stating, “Six years ago Michael Brown was killed at the hands of police, sparking a nationwide movement and a desperately needed conversation that we are still having to this day. We cannot give up fighting against police brutality.”
The truth is that Brown was not a victim of police brutality or systemic racism. He attacked police officer Darren Wilson, attempted to grab his firearm, and was shot in the process of Wilson defending himself. Witnesses testified to these accounts that were also backed up by forensics evidence. Brown was not shot in the back with his hands raised, as the fallacious narrative promulgated by Black Lives Matter claimed. Again, these were the findings of the Obama DOJ’s investigation.
However, Biden doesn’t let the truth get in the way of the “systemic racism” narrative, which he’s pressing purely for political gain. Well, come to think of it, there may be another reason Biden’s been peddling the Brown myth — given his failing mental state, he may have forgotten the incident was ever investigated by Obama’s DOJ.
Either way, standing behind Biden as if he were Trump’s moral superior is to engage in abject hypocrisy.
