Hollywood’s Jon Voight took to Twitter with a scathing video message about the left’s hypocrisy, the media’s evil, the Democrats’ racism and the need for “hope” that President Donald Trump will “be back” to bring this nation back to greatness once again.
He made some valid points. Why does Hunter Biden get a free pass on the N-word, while Team Trump, for years, was branded as Ku Klux Klan-like, barely one step from stringing the rope? Trump, racist? The label was anything but truthful. It was Trump, after all, who scored more votes from black males in 2020 than he even did in 2016. Conversely, it was Hunter Biden’s laptop that exposed his repeated use of the N-word during email exchanges with his White attorney.
But we already know the answer to these questions.
Leftists always accuse that of which they’re guilty.
“The left, they’re OK with slurs,” Voight said. “It’s OK for Biden’s son [Hunter] to use racist slurs, and no one says a word, not the media, no one. And why, I ask — it’s what we all ask. Why?”
He went on: “Why was it OK to beat down President Trump with cruel intention against his beautiful family — why was it OK to constantly harass them for what they, the left, accused them of being, racist, when Biden’s son is the lowest human being, poor pity of a man, who’s not well, who’s done wrong. … My fellow Americans, this world has been turned upside down with negativity from media from the left. And this is a disgrace.”
It is a disgrace.
Even Black Enterprise, the outfit that describes itself as the Number One Black Media Digital Brand, barely blinked at the news of Hunter Biden’s overt racism. In a headline, Black Enterprise wrote, “Laptop Exposes President Biden’s Son Hunter Repeatedly Using the N-Word in Text Messages With White Lawyer.”
But the ensuing coverage was hardly critical.
This was as harsh as it got: “President Joe Biden has received a LOT of support from Black people in this country due to his ties to President Obama and we were very instrumental in his presidential victory. So it comes as a very disappointing shock to hear that his son, Hunter, has allegedly been caught using the N-word in text messages. Not only was he using the word, but, he used it while speaking to his white attorney!”
Voight called it a slur from the “lowest human being.” A “disgrace.” A media-fueled travesty.
“The Biden administration and his son have lowered this nation and we must not allow these left-wing ones to get away with the justification that it’s OK for Biden‘s son to be racist while the Trump family were harassed night and day for being loyal children of the 45th president,” Voight said. “We will keep our faith that [Trump] will be back and turn this nation back to the greatest nation.”
Plenty disagree on that; plenty disagree Trump will indeed “be back” in the White House. Ever. But could we at least agree that using the N-word is racist?
If we could just get the Democrats and their friends in the press to agree on that — that’d be great.
