When news of a sex abuse scandal surrounding Joe Biden hit, the media was quick to ignore it. Only after Americans demanded answers, have these outlets been forced to discuss it. Conservatives have been quick to call out the double standard shown by many Democrats, who refuse to believe Biden’s accuser. But now, even the New York Times is facing the obvious.
As Tara Reade’s story of assault spread, many Americans were quick to question the Democrat response. Right away, liberals who once said they “believe all women” were suddenly very quiet. After all, they all but called Brett Kavanaugh a “rapist” based on the unsubstantiated word of one woman. Now, a woman with a more credible story is saying Joe Biden assaulted her. Shouldn’t liberals believe her too?
Only after the New York Times called out Biden’s campaign, does it seem like the media decided to report on the scandal. Biden’s people claimed the Times did a “thorough” investigation and cleared his name. The paper denied that, which sparked other outlets to join in and call out Biden. Now, the Times has even published an op-ed that calls the party to reject Biden as their candidate.
The New York Times published an op-ed Sunday evening arguing that Democrats should dump former Vice President Joe Biden as their candidate because of the potential damage of Tara Reade’s allegations against him…
“What I can assert with firm conviction is that Democrats ought to start considering a backup plan for 2020…
“Believing women, that oft-rehearsed exhortation, must mean taking action if it’s to mean anything. A thorough and fully transparent investigation is critical, but nothing produced by any inquiry will entirely settle the question…
To preserve the strides made on behalf of victims of sexual assault in the era of #MeToo, and to maximize their chances in November, Democrats need to begin formulating an alternative strategy for 2020 — one that does not include Mr. Biden.” [Source: Breitbart]
The paper still refuses to openly believe Reade and condemn Biden, as many liberals did to Kavanaugh. But the writer states the obvious, that this scandal might not go away and it could tarnish Biden’s chances at beating Trump.
Funny, how the writer doesn’t say that the party should reject Biden because he might be a sexual predator. She says the party should pick another candidate, because this scandal just hurts Biden’s “electability.”
Had the country ignored this Reade’s story, the left wouldn’t have even batted an eye. Even if Biden was guilty of assault. The Times is only considering replacing Biden as a candidate because of how this scandal looks, not because of the facts.
Even with a terrible scandal looming over their heads, the left is still only concerned with November. Much like the current pandemic, Democrats’ decision-making is driven not by what the right thing to do is, but by what will benefit themselves the most.
I don’t know if there are words to describe that kind of evil. Democrats claim to be the “compassionate” party who puts regular Americans first. But when have we ever seen that kind of behavior from them recently? Every action they take is to protect their political power.
When Trump was faced with a predicted 2 million American deaths, he did the unthinkable and shut down the economy. Do you think he was doing that to protect his political career—or save lives?
Meanwhile, Democrats in Congress tried to get funding for arts organizations and the Green New Deal. They stalled funding to help small businesses… twice. Not once have they put the American people first through all of this.
With the Joe Biden scandal, we are seeing the very same pattern. Some Democrats have even admitted that they will support Joe, even if he did do it. The rest seem fine to deny it or dance around the truth. Even when a Democrat admits they should dump Joe, it’s about politics, not justice.
This is a party that cares only about one thing: their strangle hold on this country. They do not care about people, that much is obvious.
