Dr. Jill Biden’s Vacuous Apology is Not the Issue
Doctor Jill Biden apologized Tuesday via a tweet from her Spokesperson Michael LaRosa after she characterized Hispanics as unique as breakfast tacos. In her speech, Biden said that “the diversity of this community, as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength.” LaRosa’s apology tweet said: “The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community,” the tweet read. Even the woke National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) objected to the taco analogy: “using breakfast tacos to try to demonstrate the uniqueness of Latinos in San Antonio demonstrates a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region. Our heritage as Latinos is shaped by a variety of diasporas, cultures and food traditions, and should not be reduced to a stereotype.” Some in Social Media have called Doctor Jill Biden “not so smart.” In 2020, Kyle Smith wrote “To call Jill Biden’s dissertation thin gruel is an insult to gruel. Whatever meager substance puddled in Bob Cratchit’s miserable bowl at mealtime was a bountiful feast compared with this paper. I wrote yesterday about the problems with this capstone project, the foundation of her Ed.D. degree and of the insistence of so many in recent days that we must call her “Dr.””
But it’s less a matter of intellect and more a matter of he giving Doctor Jill Biden the benefit of the doubt, and if we take LaRosa at her word – ‘her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community there must be a “love” that fits the intent – right? But that was not in the Bible
So perhaps what Doctor Biden is referring to is a Familiar Love for Hispanics – As in Doctor Jill Biden reflects on a fond memory when she last visited a restaurant that served her favorite breakfast burrito?
Regardless, the issue is not her demeaning statement or her vacuous apology: Politicians are like the wind – they apologize if they sense resistance, or bask on it if praised. Why Hispanics should not be enraged – they should focus on the real prize;
You see, thoughts lead to words. Words lead to actions and actions lead to habits: progressives have a tendency to promote policies to “help minorities” that lead to the #BlackGenocide and the near extinction of the African American nuclear family. In 1965 25% of African American Children were raised featherless. Today, its 75%. Very soon the African American nuclear family will be extinct. Then there is the #BlackGenocide: Planned Parenthood kills millions of preborms, mostly non-whites.
Native Americans and Alaska Natives have and continue to suffer human rights abuses due to progressive policies which can be aptly characterized as War on Minorities: WON, corrupt politicians, and incompetent tribal leadership. Prior to Dr, Fauci, U.S. government doctors thought it was fine to experiment on disabled people, prison inmates, and minorities, such experiments as giving hepatitis to mental patients, squirting a pandemic flu virus up the noses of prisoners in Maryland, injecting cancer cells into chronically ill people at a New York hospital, sterilizing Native American women whiteout their consent and notably the Tuskegee trials where for r 40 years, the US Public Health Service (PHS) conducted an experiment on African Americans men who suffered from syphilis, lured them under the guise of free medical care and meals but withheld treatment
Forcing politicians to stop publicly demeaning minorities will not change their hearts. They will merely utter their thoughts in private but not stop their actions – it will simply mean more Euphemisms. As USCCB’s Lucas Koach might warn, it will lead to proliferation of Euphemisms Rise in ‘Polite Persecution“
Hispanics should focus on the family; Society is built on the family, in all its unglamorous beauty, and Chesterton helps us to see this reality with fresh eyes. “The business done in the home is nothing less than the shaping of the bodies and souls of humanity.” — G.K. Chesterton⁰
