VP Joe Biden: Damn I'm Glad the Jews Control the Media and Push Social Liberalism on the Country

A "Dan Foster Type" explores wisdom of our affably racist Vice President, and notes that The Onion beat him to the sentiment.

Here is some of what Biden had to say on Jewish control of the media:

I believe what affects the movements in America, what affects our attitudes in America are as much the culture and the arts as anything else, he said at a Democratic National Committee reception for Jewish American Heritage Month. He cited social media and the sitcom Will and Grace, giving Jews a large part of the credit for both.

I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether its in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry, he said. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good.

Biden thoughtlessly stamps upon a strange rule in our politically-correct world, and thereby exposes its stupidity for all to see: You're not allowed to say anything about group stereotypes -- stereotyping a group is always Racism You Guys -- unless you're saying that stereotype is a good thing.

So, an angry old codger can spit and say "Jews control the media" and that's bad and racist, but a stupid old codger like Joe Biden can say "Jews control the media, splendid!" and that's philosemetic.

Note the actual observation in both cases is precisely the same -- but one man is adjudged to be a crazy, bitter conspiracist for noting it, because he assigned that observation a negative value, and the other is taken to be a swell-hearted old fool, because he assigned it a positive one.

This is a ridiculous rule, of course. In both cases, the observation is precisely the same -- sort of true, sort of false. The observation cannot become more true because you say it's wonderful, and it cannot become more false because you're critical. The truth of the observation is, of course, perfectly independent of the positive or negative assessment of the situation a speaker may assign to it.

Equally absurd is closely associated rule: The same behavior which is praiseworthy in a minority group is usually depicted in seethingly hostile terms if white people do it. To cite the most obvious example: The practice of Christianity itself. Atheist white liberals will do blackflips to praise the joy and spirituality of the black practice of Christianity, but any white person who subscribes to such a vicious gutter-religion must be contemned or, at least, condescended to.

Speaking of absurd rules of PC: Breitbart's John Nolte notes that a Politico reporter stated that Guantanamo was Obama's "tar baby," and no one in the media noticed or objected.

Nolte's piece is written in an arch way, though I don't expect that the liberal media will comprehend that (should they deign to read it, which they won't). He takes the Politico reporter to task for her "racism."

Of course, he doesn't mean a word of it; he is attempting to illustrate for the media the ludicrousness of their own attacks on conservatives for similar language.

A liberal can say "tar baby" and no one blinks because of course we know no liberals are racist.

If a conservative says it, though, it's proof he's offering "dog whistles" to his fellow racist.

How do we know this? What is the difference between the liberals' use of the expression and a conservative's?

Well, obviously: We know that conservatives are racist, ergo their use of "tar baby" must be racist.

And how do we know they're racist in the first place? Because, of course: They say things like "tar baby." Duh.

This is of course circular reasoning, which is obvious to anyone who gives the situation a moment's inspection, but of course leftists do not give the situation a moment's inspection, because their entire ideology is premised on double standards and creating different Classes of persons, some Officially Privileged (and therefore who can say "tar baby" without fear of being declared a racist) and some Officially Disparaged (for whom many, many words and ideas are off-limits, up to and including the mere criticism of the President).

Of all the many things I despise about the President, the Left, and the Leftist Media, I think this must be the most despicable and unamerican-- this never-ending attempt to create and strengthen a sharp division of Classes of citizenship, Favored and Disfavored, with starkly different rules applying to each.

And what is all the more galling is the claim that simply noting this unamerican Marxist scheme is itself evidence of racism, nearly a crime against the state. To object to one's Official Status as a Disfavored Person is to confirm the Elite's judgment of placing one in the category of Disfavored Person!

After all, if we were more enlightened -- more deserving of the status of Favored Person -- we'd understand the benevolence of the scheme. By critiquing the regime, we only prove that we belong in the category of Disfavored Persons.
