During his visit to Buffalo, NY, and to the site of the shooting massacre that took place on Saturday, President Joe Biden made some remarks, during which he shared a lie about the mass shooting in Dallas, Texas, incorrectly claiming it was a result of “white supremacy.” In the event that is supposed to be about helping people who have lost loved ones to murderers, the focus should be on the victims. He did mention them and attempted to talk about them. However, Joe being Joe provided the wrong information. He gave one the wrong name and stated that another was suffering from “brain cancer” when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. And he also called another an “expert banker” when, actually, the individual was an “expert baker.” This is due to the inability to comprehend the teleprompter or fully understand the details of people's lives. If you're going to speak about them, make sure you're doing it correctly.
However, he then added insult to injury. He mentioned the mass shooting incident at a hair salon in Dallas, Texas, that occurred within the last week. In that incident, a man killed three Korean women in a hair salon.
According to Biden, “We have now seen too many times the deadly and destructive violence this ideology unleashes. We heard the chants, ‘You will not replace us,’ in Charlottesville, Virginia. I wasn’t going to run, as the Senator knows, again for President. But when I saw those people coming out of the woods—of the fields of—in Virginia, in Charlottesville, carrying torches, shouting, ‘You will not replace us,’ accompanied by white supremacists and carrying Nazi banners—that’s when I said, ‘No. No.’
“And I, honest to God—those who know me—Chuck—you know I wasn’t going to run for certain. But I was going to be darned if I was going to let—anyway. Don’t want to get going. Look, we’ve seen the mass shootings in Charleston, South Carolina; El Paso, Texas; in Pittsburgh; last year in Atlanta; this week in Dallas, Texas; and now in Buffalo—in Buffalo, New York. White supremacy is a poison. It’s a poison—(applause)—running through—it really is—running through our body politic. And it’s been allowed to fester and grow right in front of our eyes. No more. I mean, no more. We need to say as clearly and forcefully as we can that the ideology of white supremacy has no place in America. (Applause.) None.”
There’s no other conclusion that one can make except that he’s calling the Dallas shooting a “white supremacist” action. Except there’s a problem. The possible suspect was black. The police have identified the man they have in custody, Jeremy Theron Smith, who is black. The suspect arrested in relation to the shooting in a Korean hair salon located in Texas this week was said to have “delusions” about Asians, according to his girlfriend. Jeremy Smith, 36, was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday morning and accused of three charges of aggravated assault using a deadly weapon during the shooting on May 11, according to jail records online. The reports suggest that he could have mental problems. The FBI is investigating the case as a potential national hate crime.
It's a horrible issue for Biden to deny. Perhaps even more since he's telling untruths to those who have been victimized by an alleged racial attack that killed their loved ones. How can you explain to them that you're lying about something like that?
White supremacy is both wrong and bad. Also, black supremacy is a sin. And people are being targeted for other reasons, such as being Asian as well as because of their whiteness. This is all wrong, and all of it ought to be and should be rebuked. However, Democrats such as Joe Biden seem to want to make it appear as if the only victims are people of color because of white supremacy. Notice that Biden does not mention the alleged hate attack in Laguna Woods that happened on May 15. One victim was killed, Doctor John Cheng–who charged the shooter to save others, and five people were injured. The incident was reported to be a “hate attack” against the group because they were originally from Taiwan. It happened this week. Was that the reason? Did it happen because the suspect was Chinese? Evil is everywhere and in all races. To say it isn't is in itself racist.
