Something gross is happening these days with news networks all joining forces to anoint Joe Biden as the king of the Democratic party while ignoring the fact that every time he opens his mouth, nonsense spills out of his sundowning brain.
Bernie Sanders has the most groundswell and active supporters than Biden. I’ve literally never met anyone that’s had any specific opinion on Joe Biden yet somehow after a terrible debate performance where he flat out lied for two consecutive hours, he is just being handed the keys to the Democratic nomination and zero news outlets are being critical of him.
Joe Biden is a lying warmongering homophobic segregationist whose crowning political achievement is a 90’s crime bill that destroyed black families and set black people behind for another decade as he militarized police and grew America’s prison industrial complex to target poor black communities.
Oh, and he raped a woman.

Tara Reade worked in Joe Biden’s senate office in 1993 and in a recent podcast interview here’s what she said happened between the two of them:
“It happened all at once, and then … his hands were on me and underneath my clothes. He said ‘come on, man, I heard you liked me. For me, it was like, everything shattered … I wanted to be a senator; I didn’t want to sleep with one.”
Now, we can go into to whether or not we believe this woman but let me just stop right here and make it extremely clear for everyone reading this: I believe her.
But of course there’s always the pro-rape crowd that comes out and says “why is she saying this now? Why did she wait so long?” As if there is any time she could’ve told this story without people saying the same fucking thing.
Why is it so much easier to believe that a woman is trying to tear down the career of a powerful man than it is to believe that a powerful man would take advantage of his power to use women?
Perhaps she never told anyone because he was a US Senator and she just worked in his office and it was a moment between the two of them that no one else was there to witness and it would have been impossible to prove and maybe, just maybe, a young woman doesn’t want to be on every newspaper cover and have her political career ruined before it even started.
OH, it’s also important to point out that Tara Reade attempted to get support from the Time’s Up legal team that helped the #MeToo movement take down Hollywood predators like Harvey Weinstein and Tara Reade was denied helped because going after a presidential candidate would remove their ‘non-profit- status.
It’s almost as if the system is designed for powerful men to get away with rape. Interesting.
But that’s not the conversation I want to have today. That’s not why I’m writing this. There is something much grosser going on.
Why is no one even having this stupid Tara Reade debate?
CNN and MSNBC have been radio silent about these allegations. When I googled Tara Reade’s name, all I found were results from those shitty alt-right blogs like Breitbart or The National Review. Why hasn’t the Washington Post or New York Times written about the Democratic nominee SEXUALLY ASSAULTING a woman?
Whether you believe the allegation or not, it should at least be looked into. It should be fucking mentioned somewhere outside of white nationalist reddit pages because I promise you that the people who support Donald Trump—serial rapist—do not care if Joe Biden hurt a woman so they’re not making this story up out of the blue. I promise you they do not care about this issue.
Remember when CNN attempted to make a headline out of Joe Biden announcing in the debate that his vice president was going to be a woman in a very forced and clearly pre-planned inorganic bullshit pandering patronizing eye rolling moment?
Cool cool. He also sexually assaulted Tara Reade in 1993.
It’s just a damn shame that Bernie Sanders is an astronomically better candidate than Joe Biden but he’ll never catch him in the necessary number of delegates or sexual assault violations to become president.
Congrats to the American voters for having absolutely no self-respect and continuing to champion the worst humans on Earth who do not give a shit whether or not we lie or die.
But let me leave you with an inspiring Joe Biden quote he delivered during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings in regard to Dr. Christine Blaney Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh raped her:
“For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real.”
Truer words have never been spoken. Now draw a clock, please.
