Oh, do shut up:
The Boston Globe is calling on Vice President Joe Biden to apologize for telling an audience at a campaign rally, made up largely of African Americans, that Republicans “want to put ya’ll back in chains.”
“[I]magine if Republican Paul Ryan uttered comments like that. Mitt Romney’s pick for vice president would be pilloried for racial insensitivity — and so would Romney,” the Globe’s editorial board wrote in today’s paper. “In the fight for civility and substance over pointless hyperbole, Biden may not be the worst offender. But he’s an offender nonetheless, and he should apologize.”
I did a quick Google search, and I don’t recall the Boston Globe demanding that Mitt Romney apologize for Romney surrogate and Orange Supremacist Donald Trump’s crazy racist birther bullshit.
As such, I am cordially inviting the Boston Globe to shut its fucking pie hole and stop feigning outrage on behalf of black Americans, many of whom don’t give a shit about what Biden said, and care more about the fact that Mitt Romney policies will, metaphorically, put them back in chains. (Not to mention the fact, that in context, his comments made perfect sense.)
And no, I don’t give a shit that the GOP found a Negro to complain about Biden’s language for them. Arthur Davis can jump up his own ass.
I have fucking had it.
Just shut up and let Joe Biden be great.
