Quid Pro Joe’s New Ad
Quid Pro Joe’s New Ad
Repeating a lie, because he wants you to believe it, is Quid Pro Joe Biden’s latest campaign ad. Is Team Biden trying to tie Trump with racists in an effort to undercut the success the POTUS has found in the Black community?
Joe Biden’s campaign has been through some ups and downs. His handlers and managers have had some major gaffes, not to mention the ones by the candidate. So this ad must seem like a home town home-run for Team Biden. Unfortunately, not only is it old news (a risk in modern politics), it’s easily proven as a subjectively edited piece to support a false narrative.

It is the mythical “Trump supports racists” narrative. One that happens so often (sarcasm here…) that Quid Pro Joe’s team had to dig way into the vault and grasp comments from 2017. Unfortunately for Team Biden, the entire hypothesis about this incident has already been beaten to death. Even Jake Tapper admitted the comments were taken out of context. Really out of context. Like, maybe so far out that Hunter Biden needed an acid fueled fantasy rocket to retrieve them.

Because we deal in facts here at VG, the original comments are in the video.
It was a long and rambling press conference. But I do remember thinking that “Trump’s not wrong…” about the violence coming from both sides. Antifa certainly did their share of damage and mayhem, as a senior law enforcement official tracking domestic terrorism stated,
“It was in that period [as the Trump campaign emerged] that we really became aware of them. … These antifa guys were showing up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beating the shit out of people. … They’re using Molotov cocktails, they’re starting fires, they’re throwing bombs and smashing windows.”
Following the recent attacks on America’s religious communities, Joe Biden released a written statement about the “battle for the soul of this nation.” His tone and words lay the current rise in Anti-Semitic activity and minority attacks at Trump’s doorstep.
“Yet, after Charlottesville, instead of condemning a naked display of hatred, Trump assigned a moral equivalence between those streaming through the night with torches, chanting anti-Semitic bile — and the courageous neighbors and activists who stood against them. He gave license and safe harbor to white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK.”
Of course, Biden disregarded any semblance of the truth with this statement. But it looks a lot like the framework for his new
radio… err Twitter ad.
Joe is using multiple media avenues and circling his wagons back to a time when he was Obama’s sidekick. He’s grasping for the Black vote at a time when the numbers suggest a slight shift in their turn out could help Trump secure a 2020 victory. Politico writes,
“Trump received just 8 percent of the black vote in 2016, and his campaign aides concede he’s never going to win more than a narrow slice of African American support. But that’s not the point, they argue. If Trump can nudge his way into double digits among black voters and potentially into the low teens, it would eat away at Democratic margins in key swing states and possibly alter the outcome in a close election.”
By bringing up the specter of the KKK, and White Nationalists at Charlottesville, Biden is bridging an association between groups historically responsible for terrorizing Blacks during the 20th Century, and Trump. This is an obvious effort to taint the inroads that Trump has made with the Black community by increasing support for Black Universities and most importantly criminal justice reform.
Quid Pro Joe goes so far as to play the Barrack card in his writing,
“Trump’s actions have only worsened the crisis: retweeting white nationalist postings. Cutting funding for Obama-Biden initiatives put in place to counter violent domestic extremism.”
Fortunately, this has been hashed out and Quid Pro Joe’s ad looks like a desperate attempt at pandering to those who fall in line with the Democrats groupthink.
