Former VP Joe Biden quoted former Chinese dictator Mao Zedong for at least the second time in an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts.
“Did you feel pressure to select a Black woman?” asked Good Morning America’s co-anchor Robin Roberts.
“No, I didn’t feel pressure to select a Black woman,” Biden said. He later added, “the government should look like the people, look like the country. Fifty-one percent of the people in this country are women. As that old expression goes, ‘women hold up half the sky,’ and in order to be able to succeed, you’ve got to be dealt in across the board.”
He has referenced this quote from Mao at least one other time on the 2020 campaign trail during a digital campaign event on July 14, saying it in reference to economic relief for women amid coronavirus.
“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden said, later adding that “women hold up half the sky,” according to Fox News.
Mao said this in 1968.
It was a phony statement about advancing women. He was pushing them into the workforce to serve as labor for the communist party.
“…the Communist revolution… made [women’s] interests subordinate to collective goals.”https://t.co/KO3zYVa8rC

To be fair, I’m 100% sure he didn’t remember who said it.

Biden is claiming womans rights, quoting a Communist dictator who used women as forced labor.

Imagine if Trump quoted Hitler or Stalin (even seemingly innocuous quotes). Media would freak and it would be evidence he was a Nazi or Russian asset.
Now consider that Mao slaughtered more people than either one of them and there will be largely media silence on this.

Typical of the Democrats party! They love to quote dictators and follow their ideology! Be warned!

To Chinese-Americans, Mao is like Hitler to Jews.
