It’s 2020, so Black Supremacists are saying America is as bad as Nazi Germany, and White Supremacists are voting for Joe Biden. But did Joe Biden really say Richard Spencer is Black?
The Sacramento Brie’s layers and layers of editors and fact-checkers looked into the claim.
In May, Biden said, “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.” (May 22, The Breakfast Club.) Yesterday, White Supremacist Richard Spencer said, “I’m on Team Joe.” (Twitter, Aug. 23.)
We were almost convinced, but the Internet is full of lies, so we dug further.
A week after Biden appeared on The Breakfast Club, Black Lives Matter posted on their official website, “#DefundThePolice.” (May 30, BLM.) A week after that, Biden lashed out at BLM. “No, I don’t support defunding the police,” he told CBS. (June 8, CBS.)
In August the former vice president distanced himself further from BLM by saying President Trump wants to defund the police. “The only guy that actually put in a bill to actually defund the police is Donald Trump,” he said. (Aug. 21, ABC.)
Two days ago, Politico reported that the Marxist founder of the Black Lives Matter organization — not that that there’s anything wrong with Marxists who want to “burn down this system” — said Democrats won’t “fully align themselves” with the movement. (Politico, Aug. 22.)
A day later — not to be outdone by a self-admitted Marxist — Jemele Hill said on Twitter that “the U.S. is as bad as Nazi Germany.” (Twitter, Aug. 23.)
The same day — not be outdone by a Black Supremacist — White Supremacist Richard Spencer said, “I’m on Team Joe.” (Twitter, Aug. 23.)
Today, Biden said “Richard Spencer is black” and BLM told supporters to “vote for Trump.” (SacBrie, Aug. 24.)
Because this is 2020.
Verdict: False. The Sacramento Brie is a satirical website that once wrote Biden is a racist, but Biden never said Spencer is Black (not because Spencer isn’t Black, but because Biden has no principles and desperately needs the Marxist vote).
