Biden is so well known for his blunders that they’re arguably synonymous with his national image:
Not a great look for someone running for President.
Let’s take a look at the top four Biden gaffes and big political mistakes throughout his long career...
Coal Miners and Computers
One of the biggest times where Joe Biden lost many precious blue-collar votes was during a campaign event in December 2019.
Biden talked about how he had many plans for the jobs of the future.
Astoundingly, he said that coal miners should "just learn to program and enter computer science" if their jobs were lost!
According to Sleepy Joe;
Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for God's sake...
While that may technically be true, it fails to account for the age of many of America’s blue-collar workers.
Furthermore, America is supposed to be the land of opportunity.
You shouldn’t need to be a programmer to have a good standard of living.
Biden made one of his biggest gaffes ever back in 1975.
During this era, Biden was a senator and opposed the "bussing" initiative designed to accelerate racial desegregation by moving white children to inner-city schools and black children to schools further out in the suburbs.
The idea was to make everyone realize that they really weren’t so different by encouraging them to coexist.
But Biden claimed that this policy would undermine black national identity.
Needless to say, this take was extremely unpopular and Biden backpedaled later down the road.
But it still goes to show you that Biden doesn’t necessarily have the well-being of African-Americans in his heart, despite what he may say.
The 1994 Crime Bill
This infamous Crime Bill is just another nail in the Joe Biden coffin.
Biden was largely responsible for shepherding the 1994 crime bill (called the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994) through Congress.
Though it received bipartisan support for some time, it is now largely seen as a huge mistake.
For instance, it implemented many laws and features that harmed African-Americans and other minorities throughout America, including:
- Mandatory minimum sentences
- Boosts to mass incarceration
- The “three-strikes” policy that led to mandatory life sentences for many repeat offenders, regardless of the seriousness of their crimes
- A ban on assault weapons
- More funding for prisons
All in all, it’s safe to say that this bill was a big failure in terms of social policy.
While it did cut down on crime over the short term, it did not provide lasting results and it has torn families apart for generations.
Lastly, Biden made huge mistakes in terms of policy when he was Obama's vice president – he was unfriendly to America’s oil and natural gas industries.
While it is important that we eventually transition to a greener economy, we need those industries to maintain adequate levels of employment and to make sure everyone gets the energy we need to maintain our standards of living.
Biden has historically been against these industries in favor of solar and wind, even though both of those industries are not yet developed enough to replace fossil fuels.
However, Biden seems to recognize his mistake – he even backpedaled on the issue during the last debate with President Trump.
Of course, this is all just an obvious ploy to get voters to get him into the Oval Office.
And it’s not one we’re going to fall for!
Any American who knows the value of our oil and natural gas industries will be voting for Trump.
Thank you for reading, stay strong patriots.
