President Joe Biden was accused of hypocrisy after declaring one Minnesotan found guilty of murder proves prejudice against people belonging to another race exists.
Fox News talk show host Greg Gutfeld caught Biden condemning the same systemic racism and “stain on America” he allegedly helped create.
“[Biden] believes it is systemic racism [but he] was there leaving the stain for five decades,” Gutfeld said in a video shared on Rumble. “You went to a damn funeral of a Ku Klux Klan [grand] dragon, so do not talk to us about systemic racism.”
The television personality compared Biden’s hypocritical actions to betraying the nation for selfish reasons.
“Before you throw the whole country under the bus as a bunch of red-neck racists, you have got to throw yourself under the bus too because you were right there,” he said. “You were one of the most powerful people in the country, you could have done something and you did do some things that were actually considered racist.”
The remarks came after the Democrat claimed Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict was conclusive proof of systemic racism.
Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris repeatedly criticized Chauvin after the Hennepin County Courthouse jury decided the former Minneapolis police officer had killed George Floyd while protecting and serving the Twin Cities.
“It was a murder in the full light of day, and it ripped the blinders off for the whole world to see the systemic racism,” the president said in a statement.
Biden portrayed Chauvin using force to restrain what he believed to be a disorderly suspect as nationwide repression of African Americans.
“The systemic racism that is a stain our nation’s soul; the knee on the neck of justice for black Americans; the profound fear and trauma, the pain, the exhaustion that black and brown Americans experience every single day,” he said. “Enough, enough, enough of the senseless killings.”
The Democrat also suggested his administration was partly responsible for lobbying the jury to find Chauvin guilty of third-degree murder, second-degree manslaughter, and second-degree unintentional murder. The 45-year-old defendant was refused bail.
Gutfeld blames mainstream media companies for helping the Biden administration stir up unnecessary conflicts between Americans.
“The debate is not dividing the country, the media narrative is dividing the country,” he said. “No one is divided over the Chauvin verdict … [and] the media cannot take ‘yes’ for an answer because, once they do, they no longer have an issue to beat America’s head with.”
The presenter believes the Chinese Communist Party and other hostile foreign groups are glad to see what he calls “anti-American propaganda” spread, because it helps them undermine America.
“This systemic racist narrative is so destructive that it is actually identical to what [mainland] China says about us,” he said. “We are doing our enemy’s work, we are on a path to destruction that is of our own doing, [and] we are doing it to ourselves. It is the opposite of unification, it is destruction.”
He believes political, and media commentary on systemic racism falsely implies the United States cannot foster an inclusive society.
“It undermines the narrative that we are an irreversibly racist country,” he said. “This is going to keep happening again and again.”
“We are in dangerous times [and] let us not pretend for a minute that everybody is suddenly ready to have a conversation because people were trying to have this conversation for years,” he added.
