President Joe Biden’s Racist First Year

Biden

Last January, newly elected President Joe Biden pledged to fight racism and unify the nation. Instead, during his first year, he’s imposed a harsh agenda of racism in everything from distributing pandemic-relief aid to allocating scarce medicines for COVID patients. Racial favoritism is affecting every way Americans are treated by this administration.

New guidance from Biden’s Food and Drug Administration instructs states to reserve monoclonal antibody drugs for patients with medical risk factors such as obesity and kidney disease. But here’s the catch: The FDA is also urging race and ethnicity to be considered risk factors, apart from a medical condition. So a Black patient with no health problems automatically will be put ahead of a white patient in the same situation.

Biden’s Treasury Department is rolling out a $10 billion program to aid small-business owners with loans and grants. Businesses owned by minorities, women, non-English speakers, and ex-cons go to the front of the line.

Biden administration regulators use weasel words to obscure the truth about who will benefit from this State Small Business Credit Initiative. Regulators say “disadvantaged” groups, but that’s defined by race and ethnicity, not actual hardship.

Eligibility also includes anyone who has had “long-term residence in an environment isolated from the mainstream of American society.” Translation: ex-cons. White male business owners who obey the law and have never been incarcerated are out of luck.

It’s more of the same. Biden’s American Rescue Act, passed in March, is riddled with discrimination. That law divvied up taxpayer dollars to benefit minorities and shortchange white people in the name of equity. Minority farmers were offered no-strings loan forgiveness by Biden’s Agriculture Department, but white farmers were ineligible.

Biden’s Restaurant Revitalization Fund pushed minority and female restaurant owners to the front of the line for whopping giveaways — up to $10 million per business owner. Sorry, white men.

Federal judges have suspended these programs until white challengers get their day in court. But Biden persists, pandering to his political supporters. Equal rights be damned.

The infrastructure bill passed in November is chock-full of anti-white racism. It includes grants to install solar and wind technologies in depressed areas. But when contractors bid, minority-owned businesses will get selected first.

The bill also allocates money to improve urban traffic patterns. Contractors and subcontractors get priority only if they’re owned by minorities or women. White male business owners can take a hike.

So can Asians, in Biden’s view. On Dec. 13, Biden’s Justice Department urged the Supreme Court not to hear a challenge to Harvard University’s admissions policies, which challengers say deny admissions to Asians who have grades and test scores far higher than Black and white applicants.

The Trump Justice Department was committed to challenging these racial preferences, and the American public agrees. Nearly three-quarters of Americans oppose considering race and ethnicity in admissions decisions, and that includes 65% of Hispanics and 62% of Blacks, according to Pew Research. In November, California, the most left-wing and racially diverse state in the country, voted against reinstating affirmative action in state hiring and admissions to public universities.

Biden’s Education Department is dangling federal grants to encourage state education bureaucrats to adopt critical race theory and the factually challenged New York Times “1619 Project.”

The indoctrination and racism continue in the workplace. Is this what Americans want? Absolutely not. Three-quarters of Americans oppose using race to decide who’s hired and promoted, Pew found.

Biden is ignoring that. He’s cynically giving his political backers what they want and, in the process, ripping deep wounds into the nation.

When Black and Hispanic people are ushered to the front of the line for medical treatments, get first dibs on pandemic relief funds, or get hired faster or admitted to college more easily, other people suffer. Lives and livelihoods are affected.

Americans want to be treated as individuals and to treat others that way.

Since Biden is one of the biggest racists in the country….he hasn’t a clue as to what each of these do. Sounds more like the racist puppet master, Obama, made all these decisions. More reason to get Bumbling Biden and the cackling ho out of the white house.

This is the logical progression from affirmative actions taken in the seventies. It was wrong in principle then because punishing people who did no wrong is unjust. We grudgingly accepted it after being told it was a temporary expedient enacted to jump start minority education. Little bits of wrong have a way of growing into all consuming monsters.

Biden administration has put us back 50 years with racial discrimination and allowed crime to make America as unsafe as any third world country. What a shame.

One of the problems is that the Republicans let him get away with it. I would like to see some of these things appear in the papers so that more than just FOX News watchers actually see what happening. Unfortunately, I guess today people don’t read papers but get all their news on their phones – Republicans need to exploit this.

only the rinos who have no backbone or common sense let the dums get away with this nonsense. we repubs have to take it upon ourselves to fight for this ourselves. we must vote the good strong ones into politics. President Trump was a strong leader and wasn’t afraid of the jack a s s symbol and the name of the dums.

Unfortunately, almost all of the print media conspire with the liberals by not printing the truth. The Washington Examiner and Imprimus are exceptions, and some others online. If R’s post conservative content on Twitter, their accounts are canceled! Can’t win, it seems. I think that inspired, in part, January 6–the frustration that the dems cheated, and loss of trust in government and the electoral process.

Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Jim Jordan, Tom Cotton, and some others in Congress have raised their voices a notch. Yes, I agree; we need to be bolder, louder, more convincing (especially with young voters)…we need to “get in their faces” like the d’s have done. Except we’d have the better message for America; we wouldn’t be hawking promises of free giveaways.

Senile Joe touted George Wallace’s support in the past but NOW thinks he was bad. He gave a eulogy for Grand Kleagle Byrd, but now Joe is a savior for the blacks! Just take everything the Senile jerk says about Repubs and apply it to HIM!

Didn’t biden say that December’s economy saw the highest retail sales in history? Wrong again…I just heard that retail sales slipped 1.9% in Dec. Now, what flavor–Nancy’s favorite, chocolate? 2 freezers or 3?

The guy in the above image is a FAKE potus… JRB is a GENUINE racist as well.
Trump won the black vote, the Latino vote & the women vote…
In essence, the above mentioned groups were intelligent enough to vote for the correct president, both the 1st & 2nd time…There is nothing racist about this fact whatsoever…
America thought it had finally broken the chain of racism barrier by voting a black person as potus, only to regret this shortly thereafter, not because of his race, but because of his hellbent notion of turning America into what we have presently become, a bunch of whining sheep that go along to get along…Weak kneed politicians that turned a blind eye to what Obama & Eric Holder were setting out to do, the rest is history as all conversations are now about race, CRT, The 1619 Project & now race has entered on who is more eligible for Covid-19 therapies, black people first because of an alleged history of unhealthy lifestyles, i.e. if your black, move to the front of the line, if you are white, move to the back of the line… Everything is now about race, anything else is secondary if you are a Democrat…
In closing,
Trump won!

How much time does Biden & Company spend in the makeup chair? This is like the old television program: ‘To Tell The Truth’. (Biden and Company couldn’t tell the truth if you paid them millions; maybe, trillions.) Its pretty obvious that the above ‘picture’ of ‘Biding His Time’ is a fake; doppelganger. So, now are we paying the salary of several ‘Biding Their Times’?? Just like in: ‘To Tell The Truth’; “Will the REAL Biden stand up?”

This made me realize the truth in the phrase “America is systemically racist” – just not in the way the “woke” folks want the world to imagine. From here forward when the subject comes up I can now agree, it is systemic, and then proceed to show exactly how racism is built into our laws and regulations. If that is not enough I’ll ask them to show me like for like regulations that assists whites in the same way. Thank you for this article, it really – how should I say this… woke me up!

Some call it favoritism; others call it reparations. Our “woke” leaders in Congress call it righting the wrongs of social injustice.

When almost 2/3 of the minority populations and 3/4 of all Americans, according to the Pew Research studies, oppose racial preferences in job openings or college admissions, I can only conclude that the problem lies with liberal politicians fighting to keep this “misperception” of racism in America alive. It’s the kind of propaganda that has worked pretty well for them in the past, and they do have their followers, but perpetuating the myth that racism is rife in America does not serve the country well. The more we yap about it, the more angry we are.

Well stated Kim… The race card just doesn’t cut it… We are a melting pot of all creeds & races here in America & most people can see this racism garbage being pushed by the Democrat party & MSM for what it really is, propaganda…There was a clear & concise reason why Trump did as well as he did in both 2016 & even better in 2020…He worked for ALL Americans, race mattered not, everyone got an equal shot under Trump & it showed in the poll numbers of both elections…Despite Trump’s incredible poll numbers in the 2020 election, the early morning hours of Nov. 4, 2020 saw Biden leap ahead in straight vertical spikes on the graphs in ALL ( 6 ) key states & handing JRB the victory, i.e. steal of the century…I agree racism in America is a ” misperception ” still being pushed by a faux administration as well as MSM & wealthy elites, i.e. Bill Gates & Soros pumping in millions of dollars all over MSM selling the lie of racism in America…
In closing,
Trump won… :~)

My heritage is 75% German and 25% English and Irish. I’d like to apologize for all my fellow ancestors who made anybody angry, overwrought, worried, frightened, or dismayed. I have released all the slaves of all races, creeds, & colors that they handed down to me. It was easy since there weren’t any. Since nearly all races have kept slaves, also of all races, I think everyone on earth should get $1,000,000 from Loopy Joe and double the Taxes on all Americans to fund it. This sounds as reasonable as most of his hair-brained ideas. Let’s go Brandon.

And some just have to walk a long distance and cross a river to cash in big-time. Or try to. Truly loopy. He must sleep so well at night, and periodically throughout the day, knowing he has “helped” so many. And, CoNMTX, we forgive you anyway.

I stayed up to watch the 2020 election results, and around 3:30 a.m., the pendulum swung in the opposite direction. I thought at the time, “What the heck is going on here?!” Too many factors pointed to a clear win for President Trump. How Hidin’ Biden could have pulled this off is beyond me, and I don’t think he won. He cheated.

I agree with you, Bill, that Trump considered the interests of each person—from the CEO to the ones who rung up the sales, regardless of race. He showed us that with policies favorable to business and working people, everyone had a shot at making it big (or at least better) without resorting to race-based bias favored by the liberals. For them to even think minorities need this kind of favoritism is, in itself, racist.

With Biden’s racist policies, he is just trying to keep these people happy so they will vote for the Democrat candidates at the midterms. Most of these policies are not for the people and need to be overturned or cancelled. Will it happen, doubt it.
