Biden’s Campaign Draws Criticism for Relying on Obama-Era Racial Politics


One of the numerous criticisms of Joe Biden’s presidency is that it mirrors the Obama administration: an effort to replicate what preceded it, lacking substance, savvy, or talent.

Biden is essentially the Jojo Siwa of politics, trying to present himself as an original thinker while merely emulating his far superior predecessors.

While there are multiple examples of this blatant imitation — with perhaps the most dangerous being the continuation of the flawed Obama foreign policy agenda, including funding terrorist regimes and paving the way for Russian military aggression — Biden is now heavily relying on former President Barack Obama’s last resort: race.

In an act of pandering that rivals Hillary Clinton’s hot-sauce moment, Biden launched a “Black Voters for Biden-Harris” campaign this week and then proceeded to heighten racial tensions as if there were no tomorrow.

“What do you think he would’ve done on January 6th if Black Americans had stormed the Capitol? I don’t think he’d be talking about pardons,” Biden stated.

Note that the longest term of imprisonment so far among hundreds of prosecutions related to the Jan. 6 riot was given to Mark Ponder, a 56-year-old black man.

“This is the same guy that wanted to tear gas you as you peacefully protested George Floyd’s murder,” Biden added.

Why is Biden doing this, especially when he pledged to be a president for all Americans? Because Biden’s only skill is to plagiarize far more successful men.

With the election nearing and pressure mounting, the similarities between 2024 and 2012 are striking.

In 2008, following Obama’s victory, the country celebrated a significant milestone: the election of an African American as president, which was seen as a step forward in the nation’s post-racial journey.

However, just four years later, Obama intentionally reversed that progress.

Not only did he specifically target black voters in a way that would have been condemned as overtly racist if Republicans did so with white voters, but he laid the groundwork for the widespread decriminalization we see today, using the language of anti-racism to undermine law enforcement and enable criminals.

He also became involved early in the Black Lives Matter movement, stating that if he had a son, he’d look like Trayvon Martin. When a grand jury decided not to indict the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown in 2014 after the 18-year-old committed a strong-arm robbery and then attacked the officer, Obama declared, “There are Americans who are deeply disappointed, even angry. It’s an understandable reaction.”

Later, Obama’s own Department of Justice quietly closed its federal investigation into both Martin’s death and Brown’s death, but Obama continued to beat the drum of racism nonetheless.

And don’t forget: Biden was a supporting act, famously telling a black audience that Mitt Romney, Obama’s white opponent, wanted to “put them back in chains.”

Strong words from a man who once eulogized a KKK “exalted cyclops.”

But who cares about inflaming racial tensions when it attracts votes? In 2008, Obama received 95% of the black vote, accepting the strange racial categorization of voters we continue to use without question. In 2012, Obama received 93% of the black vote.

However, in the years that followed, this rate has slowly declined. In 2016, Hillary Clinton received 89% of the black vote. Joe Biden, with the “historic” Kamala Harris grinning by his side, managed only 87% of the black vote.

With polls indicating a continued decline in support among minorities — because minorities also care about issues such as inflation, crime, and illegal immigration — the Democrats are panicking, and Biden is rushing to employ the Obama playbook: When in doubt, play the race card.

There’s only one problem for old Joe Biden: He’s no Barack Obama.
