I reported earlier on some of the remarks that Joe Biden made during his visit to Buffalo to the site of the mass shooting that happened on Saturday. But I wanted to break out some things that I touched on in the earlier story, because I still can’t believe that Joe Biden did them. Well, perhaps I should correct that. After having covered him for so long, I would believe he can do all kinds of despicable things.
At an event that should be about comforting the people who have suffered a lot, losing loved ones to a murderer, the focus should be on them. He did mention them and try to say something about them. But Joe being Joe, he got it wrong. He called one by the wrong first name, said another had “brain cancer” when she had breast cancer, and called one an “expert banker” when, in fact, she was an “expert baker.” That’s what comes from the inability to read the teleprompter or truly absorb the details of peoples’ lives. If you’re going to mention them, get them right.
But then he made it even worse. He referenced a mass shooting in Dallas, Texas, that happened in the past week, when a man shot three Korean women at a hair salon last Wednesday.
We have now seen too many times the deadly and destructive violence this ideology unleashes.
We heard the chants, “You will not replace us,” in Charlottesville, Virginia.
I wasn’t going to run, as the Senator knows, again for President. But when I saw those people coming out of the woods — of the fields of — in Virginia, in Charlottesville, carrying torches, shouting “You will not replace us,” accompanied by white supremacists and carrying Nazi banners — that’s when I said, “No.” “No.”
And I, honest to God — those who know me — Chuck — you know I wasn’t going to run for certain. But I was going to be darned if I was going to let — anyway. Don’t want to get going.
Look, we’ve seen the mass shootings in Charleston, South Carolina; El Paso, Texas; in Pittsburgh; last year in Atlanta; this week in Dallas, Texas; and now in Buffalo — in Buffalo, New York.
White supremacy is a poison. It’s a poison — (applause) — running through — it really is — running through our body politic. And it’s been allowed to fester and grow right in front of our eyes.
No more. I mean, no more. We need to say as clearly and forcefully as we can that the ideology of white supremacy has no place in America. (Applause.) None.
Now, there’s no other conclusion that one can make but that he’s calling the shooting in Dallas a “white supremacist” action. Except there’s a small problem with that. I noted earlier that the possible suspect was black. Now, the police have identified the man they have in custody — Jeremy Theron Smith, who is black.

The suspect arrested in connection to a shooting at a Korean hair salon in Texas last week had “delusions” about Asians, according to his girlfriend, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Jeremy Smith, 36, was arrested early Tuesday and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in the May 11 shooting, according to online jail records.
Reports indicate he may have mental issues. The FBI is looking at it, also, as a possible federal hate crime.
But, that is such a terrible thing for Biden to lie about, perhaps even more so because he’s saying it to the people who have already suffered from an alleged racial attack that has taken their relatives. How could you tell them something false like that?
White supremacy is wrong and evil. So is black supremacy. So is attacking people for other racial reasons, such as because they’re Asian or because they’re white. All of that is wrong, all of that should be condemned. But Democrats like Joe Biden seem to want to twist this as though there are only attacks by white people for white supremacist reasons. You notice Biden doesn’t note the alleged hate attack in Laguna Woods that happened on May 15. One person was killed — Dr. John Cheng who charged the shooter to save others — and five others were wounded. That was allegedly a “hate attack” against the people because they were from Taiwan. That happened this week. Why was that missing? Was it because the alleged shooter was Chinese? Evil comes in all colors, all races. To suggest it doesn’t is itself racist.
