Biden’s History of N-Word Use Resurfaces While Woke Mob Focuses on Joe Rogan
Joe Biden faces history slur use amid Spotify scandal
President Joe Biden has been caught in the crossfire after the woke mob came after podcast star Joe Rogan for using the N-word.
Rogan apologized after musical artist India Arie shared an out-of-context compilation of Rogan where he could repeatedly be heard using the N-word on his podcast over the years.
As The Daily Mail reported:
He could then be heard making a joke about the movie ‘Planet of the Apes’ as he recalled a time when he was dropped off in a black neighborhood.
The video compilation emerged when artist India.
Arie posted it on her Instagram account, using the hashtag #DeleteSpotify.
Rogan has apologized for the clips in which he said the slur, despite the fact they were from old episodes.
In an apology posted to Instagram, he called it the “most regretful and shameful thing” he’s ever had to address.
“I know that to most people; there’s no context where a white person is ever allowed to say that, never mind publicly on a podcast, and I agree with that,” Rogan said, adding, “I haven’t said it in years.”
Joe Rogan’s almost 6 minute apology for using the N-word….he says he’s not racist and hasn’t used the word in years so it’s all good then 🙄pic.twitter.com/4pkvtWpN5I— Wu-Tang Is For The Children (@WUTangKids) February 5, 2022
But Joe Biden did roughly the same thing Rogan did back when he was a senator.
Here’s a video from a 1985 Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that shows Biden — looking and speaking considerably different from the man now in the Oval Office — making repeated use of the word.
If you actually think that finding old clips of someone using the n-word is proof they're a racist, then you would find this 👇 infinitely more alarming and important given that he is kind of more powerful than Joe Rogan. But you don't think that: it's just a game to silence him. pic.twitter.com/xLBjgOsjgw— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) February 5, 2022
As co-founder of The Intercept Glenn Greenwald noted in a tweet:
“If you actually think that finding old clips of someone using the n-word is proof they’re a racist, then you would find this infinitely more alarming and important given that he is kind of more powerful than Joe Rogan.
"But you don’t think that: it’s just a game to silence him.”
In the clip, Biden quotes a racist state legislator speaking during a redistricting process hearing.
There was no hand-wringing when the AP “fact-checked” the clip in July 2020.
The claim the AP was fact-checking:
“A video from a 1985 hearing exposes Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for using the N-word, stating: ‘We already have a n***** mayor, we don’t need any more n***** big shots!’”
“Social media users are twisting comments made by Biden during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing 35 years ago for the nomination of William Bradford Reynolds as U.S. deputy attorney general,” the AP reported.
“Biden was using the comments at the time to build a case against Reynolds’ nomination, pointing out that he ignored racist comments by lawmakers and allowed them to gerrymander Louisiana’s congressional districts in a way that underrepresented Black residents.”
