President Biden faced criticism from Americans over his claim white supremacy is the “most dangerous terrorist threat” in America during a speech at Howard University.
President Biden and “White Supremacy”
President Joe Biden’s recent address at Howard University’s commencement ceremony has received criticism from conservative Twitter users for his statement that “white supremacy” is the “most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland.”
Some experts say Biden is using the opportunity to inflame racial tension in the United States.
Addressing the graduates at Washington D.C.’s Capital One Arena, the 46th president spoke about the threats they face from the division among their own country.
Biden’s Focus on Racism
Biden acknowledged the historical battle with racism in America, saying, “It’s a battle that’s never really over. But on the best days, enough of us have the guts and hearts to stand up for the best in us, to choose love over hate, unity over disunity, progress over retreat…”
Biden then emphasized his point, stating, “…To stand against the poison of White supremacy as I did in my inaugural address.”
He then called it “the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland.” The audience erupted in applause. Pointing his finger, he added, “And I’m not just saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU. I say this wherever I go.”
Some Americans did not share the audience’s reaction.
Reactions from Americans
Jon Miltimore, the managing editor of the Foundation for Economic Education, tweeted, “The Democratic Party spent most of the 19th Century and much of the 20th using overt racism to win elections. They are doing again in the 21st century. The racism just looks a lot different than the 19th century version.”
Jake Schneider, from RNC Research, shared the clip and wrote, “Divider-in-chief Joe Biden, at Howard University, says ‘the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy.'” OutKick.com’s Clay Travis found the statement completely ridiculous. He tweeted, “I mean, this is completely bonkers. Did anyone talk like this in the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s or even 2010s? Of course not. Yet suddenly white supremacy is the BIGGEST THREAT in America? I don’t even think…”
Here’ RNC Research remembers some of Biden’s “racy” comments over the years.
Journalist Julie Kelly replied, “No you’re saying it because you’re a pathological liar propped up by the media to help fuel dangerous racial division.” And New York Post journalist Miranda Devine simply tweeted “Pure evil” in response to Biden’s line.
Big Fish pointed out a “fake” march after Biden’s speech.
