While appearing at a CNN town hall in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Monday, February 16, President Joe Biden said that he believed former police officers and members of the military to be responsible for the alleged growth of “white supremacy” in America.
Biden Spreads Unfounded Conspiracies About the Growth of “White Supremacy”
During the town hall, Joel Berkowitz, a professor of literature and foreign languages at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, asked Biden an extremely loaded question. He spoke of “ongoing threats to our country from Americans who embrace white supremacy and conspiracies that align with it. What can your administration do to address this complex and wide-ranging problem?”
The very premise of the question was utterly false, but this did not prevent Biden from concocting a response.
“I got involved in politics to begin with because of civil rights and opposition to white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan,” Biden began. Of course, his own vice president once denounced him for proudly working with segregationists decades ago in order to achieve political goals, so this is nothing but an empty rhetorical flourish on Biden’s part.
“And the most dangerous people in America continue to exist,” Biden went on. “That is the greatest threat to terror in America: domestic terror.”
If that statement reads strangely, rest assured that that is what Biden said verbatim. This was likely another of his many verbal faux pas, but what he clearly meant to say was that he thought that so-called “domestic terror” from “white supremacists” was a “serious problem.”
But Biden went on to issue this whopper: He claimed that there are “studies that are beginning to be done” about “the impact of former military, former police officers, on the growth of supremacy in some of these groups.”
“White Supremacists” Are the New Witches
But this, of course, is all utterly absurd. White supremacy is not “growing” in America. Actual white supremacists in America today are about as common as witches were in Europe during the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries, at the height of the witch-burning crazes. The few genuinely white supremacist organizations that exist have all been infiltrated by the FBI. The elite is simply inventing this threat by labeling legitimate conservative organizations with which it disagrees as “white supremacists” without a shred of evidence.
Even more scary is the fact that, centuries ago, the elite believed witches to be everywhere, even though they either didn’t exist at all or barely existed. The same applies to the current elite in America with respect to white supremacists. Just as witches were the scapegoats used to justify the elite’s expansion of power then, “white supremacists” are the scapegoats that justify the elite’s expansion of power now.
As for these “studies” that Biden referenced, witch-hunters wrote long and complex books on how to detect witches as well. This is hardly the first time that academia has been perverted to justify the power of the powerful.
