Disgraced rapper and business mogul Kanye West vanished from the media very quickly when he began to deliver a series of remarks that inflamed the general public.
In fairness, some remarks clearly went over the line, especially when removed from context, though other remarks were far more benign, and truthful, in nature.
It is unfortunate that the media does not distinguish between the two.
However, what is even more unfortunate is that the media fails to hold Biden to the same standards that it holds Kanye West.
Really, as the so-called president of the United States, Biden should be held to presidential standards, beginning with knowing that he’s president in the first place, given how often he’s called Kamala “President Harris.”
Anyway, when Biden was recently asked if illegal migration was a human right, he delivered a rather bizarre answer, to say the least.
“Well, I think it is a human right if your family is being persecuted. I thought it was a human right for, you know, Jews in Germany to be able to go – to get to escape and get help where they could,” Biden babbled.
So, Biden has compared migrants illegally attempting to pass into the nation for economic benefits to individuals fleeing for their actual lives from a genocide.
That’s quite the analogy, as well as quite the way to inflame the media.
Except the media’s response to Biden’s remark has been …
Rather telling bias, really, not to mention yet another display of leftist privilege.
Varied conservative representatives were disgruntled, to put it mildly, including Representative Andy Biggs.
“Biden just compared illegal aliens – lawbreakers who have been found to be terrorists, drug dealers, and bad actors – to Jews fleeing Germany during the Holocaust. Not even remotely the same situation. This kind of mindset prevents us from legitimately securing our border,” Biggs remarked in disbelief.
That’s about the size of it, unfortunately. Despairingly, the president apparently doesn’t realize it’s “not even remotely the same situation.”
Representative Claudia Tenney also weighed in, unimpressed that the president would liken victims of the Holocaust to the criminals frequently apprehended at the border.
“Border patrol has apprehended terrorists, cartels, drug smugglers, and human traffickers at the border. Biden’s disgusting comparison between his illegal immigration surge and Jews fleeing Nazi Germany is shameful and out of touch,” Tenney remarked in disgust.
Former Trump official Stephen Miller also noted that Biden’s remarks are not only highly derogatory towards Holocaust victims, but also towards Latin American nations themselves.
After all, Biden basically suggested that all of Latin America is filled with genocide and other horrors associated with Nazi Germany, which is yet another reason the media should call him out.
But they don’t.
“Comparing Haitians leaving Haiti or Nicaraguans leaving Nicaragua to Jews fleeing violent extermination from Nazi Germany is both an outrageous minimization of the Holocaust and a vile slander of Latin American nations,” Miller declared.
Seriously. And they got on Trump (endlessly) for saying “s—hole countries.”
In other disturbing news, Biden apparently feels empowered to announce a presidential run after making a brief visit to an airbrushed border, if the words of a ‘Biden ally” are to be believed.
“I think it’s all about timing at this point. It seems like he’s all in. It’s not really ‘if’ he runs anymore,” the ally confided.
Biden “all in” for a presidential term in which he is literally approaching age 90 by the end, as he would be 86 by the time his second term concludes.
His age, however, is far less distressing than his obviously declined mental capacity … coupled with his allyship with foreign enemies.
Guess the “Big Guy” wants to squeeze the country a bit more if he can … like most authoritarians.
