Here’s the next installment in the series: “What I Pack For My Boyfriend’s Lunch”. I’m responsible for all the meal preparation...
@midnightfunk mentioned you in a photo:@politics-junkie Bernie didn’t win the nomination. Warren didn’t either. Clinton did and #45 managed to convince enough people that he’d be better till he executed the outdated relic of slavery aka the electoral college. At the end of the day one question stands: who will be better for America. In no reality is that the insecure man-child currently defiling the office. Whatever issues you have with Biden: LOOK AT THE ALTERNATIVE. It’s unacceptable.
I’m posting this on my other blog, because I’m on here the most, and it’s easier to monitor (most) conversations.
First of all, if you want to start a conversation, actually REBLOG the posts. Replying without reblogging is a shady debate tactic, because it takes away context. People can’t see what you’re replying to.
For context: this is the horribly offending thing I had the audacity to say (it was in response to a post that said Joe Biden appeals to a lot of black voters because he was VP to a black man and never tried to “stab him in the back”):
So…you know basically nothing about his policies or history then. That’s what you’re saying. You don’t care that he’s out there trying to police black people’s identities. You don’t care that he supported segregationist policies. All you care about is the optics.
This “he was respectful to his boss” mentality is stupid and doesn’t matter.
I’d have more respect for Joe if he had stood up to his boss (who happens to be black) and oppose him when he wanted to start more wars and bomb more hospitals, killing more BROWN people.
Vote for Joe all you want. It’s either him or Trump, and we all know Trump is worse.
But don’t sit there and sanitize Joe’s record, make him out to be some well-mannered dude, when he’s not.
You’re lecturing me about how Trump is worse (”At the end of the day one question stands: who will be better for America”), but I literally said IN MY RESPONSE that Trump was worse. You’re lecturing me that Bernie and Warren lost (also, just FYI, I’m not a Warren supporter, so not sure why you’re even mentioning her), but it should be obvious I already know that because, you know, I literally say, “It’s either [Joe] or Trump.”
Believe it or not, you can be critical of someone and still think they’re the overall better candidate. In fact, if that’s the case, then the only ethical thing to do is to actually address that.
I’m talking about a candidate’s racism, and all you can scream at me is basically, “But Biden is better,” even though I literally said Biden was better. Do you think I’m lying, or did you just not read what I said? Or maybe, what bothers you is that I’m talking about Biden’s racism, which you don’t actually want to address (because you think it will hurt his chances). Which is…pretty racist. Reminder to everyone: it’s not enough to be non-racist, you need to be anti-racist. And giving someone a pass because “the other guy” is worse is extremely problematic. (I mean, can you imagine how fucked up the world would be, if everything operated like that? Rape 19 women, but no one will say anything, as long as there’s a guy out there who raped 20.)
If you want Biden to have the BEST shot at winning, then I suggest you get to work pressuring him to stop saying and doing racist shit, which like it or not, WILL turn off a lot of voters. I mean, why are you helping Trump? You do realize that’s what you’re doing, when you refuse to pressure Biden to be better, right? You do realize this tactic of wagging your finger in the faces of POC who have legitimate issues with Biden’s racist history is really ineffective, right? STOP HELPING TRUMP.
Again, I don’t want Trump to win. But I also don’t like the sanitizing of Biden’s record. If someone is a racist, then call them a racist. And actually make it about them. You don’t need to bring up other, worse racists. Doing that only serves to hijack and derail a conversation that we need to have. If you don’t want to have it, then simply don’t take part in it. But Biden’s racism (and all his other atrocious qualities) affects me / us. It will affect us even MORE if he’s President (which of course, he should be because he’s better than Trump).
