Listen: Ben Shapiro, Joe Biden, Forty Five Billion Dollars discussed on Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis
"This is the Ben Shapiro shows so Joe Biden is now the focus is now the focus of all democratic ire the fact is the heart let doesn't wanna see by his nominee why because he is not seen as transformative by the way that's the reason why he probably win a general election or at the very least be supremely competitive as opposed to other Democrats in a general election by pulling data is because he is not seen as threatening in fact I had suggested that the fact that Joe Biden may or may not work depends that his polident doesn't properly work that he eats early bird dinner at Denny's at like five thirty all that actually cuts in his favor because he is basic default not trump and that's probably not a bad place to be in the lecture but the democratic base doesn't want the fault not from they want somebody who's a visionary they want Elizabeth Warren wandering the plains of Oklahoma wearing a headdress and explaining why the government must nationalize everything they want Bernie Sanders out there explaining why the government must be involved in every aspect of our lives they won't calmly Harris the narc arresting everyone in the world they they they do not want you might need desperately do not want Joe Biden and so they're honing in on junior does that by one is a diesel which is true and the other is that he's a racist which again there is no evidence of that I am aware of. the what their hunting in right now is a is a statement that Joe Biden gave in the middle of the last debate when he was asked about segregation and the legacy of racism. in the second hour of the debate in ABC correspondent name linsey Davis asked Biden to reflect in our market in the nineteen seventies court I don't feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather I feel responsible for what the situation is today this is my own generation but I'll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened three hundred years ago. and then he said well look we have to deal with institutional segregation from the time I got involved I started dealing with that red lining banks making sure we're in a position where you talk about education I propose that what we take the very poor schools the title one schools triple the amount of money we spend from fifteen to forty five billion dollars a year give every single teacher raise and then we bring in record players is this long convoluted rambling answer basically about all the ways in which he was trying to fight racism that's what it was but everybody took that on the left as we didn't have the beta lancer and they don't answer is that I've reconsidered entirely that America is about the legacy of slavery that America is about the legacy of racism in America is rooted in these institutions the Howard unification of history. the attempt to treat America's history as one long chain of unemployed evil. and occasionally people sort of someone doing the right thing but then we immediately revert into our own evil. and so because Joe Biden didn't say that because Joe Biden's pitch is much more unifying basically it's the traditional view of American history it is much more traditional in his view of American history than the other Democrats his with American history is along the lines of frankly mine or Frederick Douglass's which that America was founded on good eternally true principles and we didn't always live up to those principles and the struggle of America is a struggle to achieve the fulfillment of those principles of for example give a speech in Birmingham Alabama and president and and vice president Joe Biden former VP Joe Biden he had this to say and again this is much more in line with sort of the traditional view of slavery and racism in American history. must acknowledge. that there can be no realization of the American dream without grappling with the original sin of slavery. we have not relegated racism and white supremacy to the pages of history. but the great is this nation has always been and must continue to be. that we still strive to relegate. okay that there that is basically the traditional view of America and this is bad is that according to the left that is not the property of American history instead Joe Biden is engaged in racist paternalism so if you ever suggest that we have to for example changing sentence structure so people make better individual decisions that's racist paternalism see the view of the hard left is that every gap in American life is the result of systemic discrimination every single one if it were not for systemic discrimination than any differences between performance between groups doesn't it a racial economic any of it would all be alleviated simply if they're no discrimination right if if that that if it's not been for slavery and capitalism and brutality everything would be fine as I said this is sort of the argument of orthodox Marxist like Howard sent that every bad thing that has happened in the United States the reason they're not identical widgets with identical outcomes is because of legacy of racism and white supremacy in capitalism capitalism lying at the very bottom of that particular iceberg ideas. and thus if you buy a suggested as he did in his answer about slavery that one of the things that we ought to do is try to drive the capacity for individual opportunity that he is engaged in paternalism here is a member of the scene and panel over the weekend saying just this. to me that constantly makes these gaps which are out of touch with where we are today because he comes from an era of this like braces to paternalism in public policy making of how we have looked at dealing with the issues that the black community faces which frankly come from a recent public policy making. okay again if you're gonna say that it's racist paternalism to suggest that you need to parents in the home as Joe Biden has sort of suggested that some paternalism that's just called common sense if you want to suggest that is racist public policy making the drugs in the mother hood in home the only public house you can point to that is increased a single motherhood is welfare and tax incentives is skewed against marriage which were pushed by the left so there's that but according to what to get any gap even the mention of the gap is races there's a a columnist over the Washington post me call ros the professor in public policy health and associate professor of history at the university of Rochester. she says that the word gap itself is a problem why should the word gap she says that the word gap is inherently racist just the mention of the word gap in response to a question about centuries of American racism revealed a broader problem while biting mention redlining another racist practices at the beginning of his answer he entered with were gap itself a paternalistic racist idea. in other words every inequality is the impact of inequity every job is the response to systemic inequity inequity and evil. she says to actually address America's troubled racial legacy politicians must reject your is the blame African Americans rather than a system that has and continues to system systematically disenfranchise disadvantaged minorities there's certain areas where I think that we can make that argument certainly when you look at red lining in the nineteen ninety seven you can make that argument I don't think I can make that argument artisan motherhood and that is the job I was talking about. but according to the left the only reason we are not all the same it's because of systematic evil and because Biden doesn't believe that he is the bad guy P. bridge and try to jump on this bandwagon judge who used to appear sort of moderate his turning to assume an even smarmy our version of Elizabeth Warren areas it was a well intentioned answer and it was a bad answer the reason that we are seeing racial inequity in this country is that it was put into place on purpose and I'm not just talking about slavery beginning four hundred years ago I'm talking about policy decisions that happened within living memory that excluded black Americans from everything from fully being able to access the GI bill to labor protections in these have consequences. okay histories right those things do have consequences is every inequality in America today the result of those policies now. and are you otherwise would be statistically accurate as well as foolish but the judge is reading from playbook he knows the playbook they're trying to somebody is gonna work the reason it's not going to work is because Joe Biden was problem is the P. for eight years problem is the single most popular black figure in American in modern American history. to to try and separate off Joe Biden is some sort of evil throwback racist that is simply not going to find is certainly not gonna fly on behalf of some of the white is candidates in history like people to judge me the judge makes me look extraordinarily racially diverse people to judge the Elizabeth Warren I mean it is a white crop is a white crop of candidates and I'm trying to go after Joe Biden suggested they are perfectly woke and that's more appropriate to vote for for racial minorities is a bit of insanity we'll get to the second line of attack against a by which the super duper old in just one second first let's talk about the year but you are using to listen to the show or to your music or to others as well as your budget they may be falling apart maybe they're old they got the wires attached your phone or your car maybe you need a pair of wireless earbuds in the best way to lose your budget you can buy our ray cons so man I want is really expensive ones you want something that that's not gonna cost as much gonna look good configure your properly this."
