Joe Biden has always been one of the dumbest men in Washington DC. But, he is also one of the swamp’s most blatant, lying, panderers and this week he uncorked a doozie with the lie that “rape” is “part of white man’s culture.”
Know this: Joe Biden was so widely thought of as the dumbest man in the U.S. Senate during his many years in that chamber, that even John Kerry made fun of him. Think about that. JOHN KERRY even made fun of Joe Biden! It’s like the asthmatic kid making fun of the geek kid in 8th grade gym class!
Biden was blathering to Biden Courage Awards in New York City on Wednesday where he proved that he is a pro at pandering, but not much interested in truth or facts. The so-called Courage Award is a program of the Biden Foundation.
During his address Biden put on his best social justice warrior by saying that, gosh darn it all, but he sure wishes he could have done more to help “national hero” Anita Hill back when she was lying before Congress about the “sexual harassment” perpetrated against her by now Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Why, Slow Joe has always been haunted that he could not help Anita more, dontcha know?
“A brave lawyer, a really notable woman, Anita Hill, a professor, showed the courage of a lifetime talking about her experience being harassed by Clarence Thomas,” Biden said in New York on Wednesday. “But she paid a terrible price. She was abused in the hearing. She was taken advantage of. Her reputation was attacked. I wish I could have done something.”
“To this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to give her the kind of hearing she deserved,” he added.
What terrible price?
Anita Hill went from the drudgery of a lowly government job to becoming a celebrated leftist for her false testimony. Since then she has been showered with hollow university “honors,” been feted by every left-wing group in existence, and made millions on books, consultancy positions, and other luxury cinctures. The woman is literally sitting pretty and worth far more than she ever would have been from a life of low-end government service.
All this came as a result of her false testimony against Clarence Thomas. The fact is that Anita Hill suffered no “terrible price” for her false bravado. Indeed, it made her rich and famous.
Biden then went on to smear the whole white race…
“There were a bunch of white guys … hearing this testimony in the Senate Judiciary Committee. So, when Anita Hill came to testify, she faced a committee that didn’t fully understand what the hell it was all about. And to this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to get her the kind of hearing she deserved given the courage she showed by reaching out to us.”
“It’s not about sex,” he said. “It’s about power. The most insidious abuse of power of all. And right now, we live in a culture where the abuse of power is allowed to penetrate the highest offices of government, where it lives in board rooms and global corporations, and it poisons entire industries — from Hollywood to hotel workers. It pushes down women all around the world.”
Then, to explain how it is a “white man’s culture,” Biden added:
“This is English jurisprudential culture — a white man’s culture,” Biden said, adding that the phrase “rule of thumb” was a from British Common Law that allowed husbands to beat their wives with a stick no thicker than their thumb.
Set aside the lie that rape and abuse of women is a “white man’s culture,” Biden also lied about this “rule of thumb” canard.
It simply isn’t true. According to etymologists, the phrase harkens back a century before the English Common Law even existed. Indeed, William Blackstone, the foremost scholar of the English Common Law whose books on the practice served as the basis for American law, never mentioned this “rule of thumb” claim in his entries on the rulings on spousal abuse. There is no proof anywhere that English Common Law used the “rule” as a basis for any laws.
So, once again, Joe Biden is just lying.
Lastly, we must point this out, too. If “rape” is a “part of white man’s culture,” why was it used as a weapon of war by the Japanese during and previous to World War Two (see Rape of Nanking). And if it is only a “white man’s culture” why is rape still used as a weapon of war by black Muslims in Africa even today?
