President Joe Biden traveled to Georgia on Thursday to mark his first 100 days in office and insinuated that white Americans were the only ones who could build wealth. He vowed that he would ensure that blacks, Latinos, and Asians would also share in that wealth.
The president pitched his $4 trillion infrastructure plan during his speech that if passed, would massively expand the federal social safety net, and hammered home that Americans want more government control.
Biden called for the wealthiest Americans to pay more in taxes to help fund his proposed plans, including expanded childcare benefits, universal pre-kindergarten, and tuition-free community college. He claimed that his proposed $1.5 trillion in tax hikes will only affect households making $400,000 or more. But many contend that raising taxes in this manner will spark inflation and, in the end, will hurt those very households he is speaking of.
“It’s about time the very wealthy and corporations start paying their fair share,” Biden declared. “It’s as simple as that.” Ostensibly pushing wealth redistribution, he argued that economic growth will result from taxing the rich to help the middle class and the poor.

“Most of the middle-class folks you know are Caucasian or white – how’d they make it? Well they were able to get enough money to buy a home and they build equity in that home…and they passed it on and that’s how you build wealth,” Biden remarked. “Well we’re gonna make sure that African-Americans as well as make sure the Latinos and Asian-Americans are able to build that kind of wealth.”
Biden’s speech in Georgia is just one example of his use of race to promote his agenda. He also referenced it in his speech Wednesday evening before a joint session of Congress.
“We have a giant opportunity to bend to the arc of the moral universe toward justice. Real justice. And with the plans I outlined tonight, we have a real chance to root out systemic racism that plagues American life in many other ways,” Biden said.
“A chance to deliver real equity. Good jobs and good schools. Affordable housing. Clean air and clean water. Being able to generate wealth and pass it down through generations. Real opportunities in the lives of more Americans – black, white, Latino, Asian American, Native American,” claimed the President.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson dissected Biden’s racial references in his address to Congress.
“And we won’t ignore what our intelligence agencies have determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today. White supremacy is terrorism. We’re not going to ignore that either. My fellow Americans. Look, we have to come together to heal the soul of this nation,” Biden proclaimed during his speech.

Carlson took that statement apart piece by piece: “We have to come together to heal the soul of the nation by attacking our fellow Americans using a phrase no one will define.”
“What does coming together mean? Well, it means that because of a concept called “white supremacy,” a phrase often invoked, but never defined, your civil liberties have been suspended. (By the way, the whole point of the Derek Chauvin murder trial was to inform you of that.) Traditionally in this country, we’ve forced ourselves to assume criminal defendants are innocent until proven otherwise, even if we have video. That’s our system; innocent until proven guilty. Not anymore,” he noted.
“Now, there was a time, like twenty minutes ago, where charging someone twice for the same crime was called double jeopardy. It’s unconstitutional and always has been. But not anymore. Now that white supremacists roam the land, no right is absolute,” Carlson snarked.
The Biden administration’s plans appear to lean heavily on race-based initiatives, whether they be economic, punitive, or legislative. It is one of the premises reportedly being used as the basis of the sweeping “changes” proposed for America by the Democrats.
