By far the largest online audience of all Republican Party news-sites is Breitbart News, whose major stories typically have over a thousand reader-comments; and, so, that site will be the source for the articles which will here be discussed.
Breitbart featured on August 8th and 9th four news reports that focused-in on what is actually the shocking conservatism of two Democratic Party Presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg. Perhaps Democratic Party voters can’t recognize how conservative those two Democratic Party Presidential candidates actually are, but Breitbart News does, and they are here pointing it out. Must one go to conservative sites, such as Breitbart, in order to have that pointed out? Apparently so.
The openings of each of those four news-reports will be posted below, and, after them, will be posted my comments on the ways in which each report is referring to the authoritarianism, and/or racism, of the given Democratic Party candidate, as reflecting a degree of conservatism that I, a progressive, would never vote for in a candidate (though liberals and conservatives might find them to be quite acceptable):
8 August 2019
Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” while addressing the Asian and Latino Coalition in Des Moines, Iowa, on Thursday.
This is the second time in a matter of months he has found himself struggling to correctly name the leader – current or otherwise – of ally Great Britain.
[Biden, addressing the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC on August 9th, about Trump’s evil statement which had called the racist KKK “good people” said: “You had people like Margaret That[cher] — excuse me [and he didn’t follow that by the words “Theresa May,” to correct himself, because he had forgotten her name]. You had people like the former chairman and the leader of the party [he didn’t know its name] in Germany. You had Angela Merkel [finally, he did get something right] stand up and say how terrible it was. International leaders looked at us like what in God’s name is happening in the United States of America?” However, Biden lied there, because what those leaders were condemning wasn’t Trump’s appalling statement about the KKK’s violent march in Charlottesvile, but instead they were condemning the KKK’s violence there. Biden lied there to allege that they had condemned Trump’s vile statement about that march. The foreign leaders strongly condemned the KKK’s “evil attack,” not America’s President. This is how Biden speaks to a PAC to pander for its donations — ignoring the actual policy-issues, and lying to appeal to their already existing preconceptions and peeves] …
Flashback: Joe Biden Repeatedly Praised George Wallace
Joe Biden compared President Donald Trump to the late-Alabama Gov. George Wallace (D) on Wednesday, despite his own history with the once ardent segregationist. Biden, who in recent months has faced controversy for praising two segregationist Democrats with whom he served in the United States Senate, made the comments on Wednesday during an address in Burlington, Iowa.
The speech was billed by Biden’s campaign as a discussion about the “battle for the soul of our nation” in the wake of a string of mass shootings. Instead of suggesting more funding for mental health or new gun control measures — two of the usual solutions proposed in the aftermath of such tragedies — Biden laid the blame directly on Trump, claiming the president had encouraged hatred and disunity among the American people.
“We’re living through a rare moment in this nation’s history. Where our president isn’t up to the moment,” the former vice president said. “Where our president lacks the moral authority to lead. Where our president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.”
The comparison was not totally surprising, given that Biden has escalated his attacks on the president in recent days, even likening him to the Ku Klux Klan on Monday. It did, however, strike some as odd because of Biden’s own long history of invoking and at time praising the late-Alabama governor.
Pete Buttigieg: ‘The Press Is Never the Enemy of the People’
“At a time like this when the press are under daily assault it is important, I think, for candidates whether the coverage on any given day is critical or supportive or somewhere in between, know that the press is never the enemy of the people,” Buttigieg said.
This is a very good example of the most egregious sort of liberal racism: the idea that the basic problem in America is between ethnic groups (or cultures), and not between economic groups (or classes) — between, in this instance, Blacks versus Whites, and not between billionaires (and the people and corporations who represent them in the U.S. Government) versus everyone else (the general public).
“Biden Confuses Ex-British PM Theresa May with Margaret Thatcher [Again]”
Biden routinely misrepresents things. The problem isn’t merely his mediocre intelligence, because always his misrepresentations reflect his propaganda-agenda: he’s actually aiming to fool voters, instead of to inform or educate them.
This news-report itself mixes its own deceptions into an authentic report about Biden’s hypocrisy, and his hypocrisy is shown there, where it said:
Furthermore: he never did anything, as a federal official, to lock up the type of criminals who donate large sums to his Party — the liberal billionaires, some of whom have poisoned, endangered, and outright murdered, more people by signing a document than a thousand penitentiary-occupants (most of whom are poor) did. As a conservative, he favors only “locking up criminals” of the poor type. That’s the worst type of public official.
