Oh Nothing, Biden cites quote made famous by Mao Zedong during fundraiser
quote:

Joe Biden cited a quote made famous by Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong during a digital fundraising speech with former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. "We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden said on Monday evening to the 14 wealthy donors who attended the digital fundraising session. According to the pool reporter who watched the event, Biden then cited the Chinese proverb, "Women hold up half the sky." The phrase comes from a proclamation by Mao in the mid-20th century that helped grant certain rights to women in China. The phrase became commonplace in China at the time, often appearing on pieces of propaganda in factories or other industrial areas. Biden's remarks came as he championed women entering the labor force, citing the high percentage of college valedictorians who are women. “Unless you take advantage of half or more of your brain power, you are never going to be in the position where you’re going to be able to compete internationally,” he said. “Women. Women. Women.” The fundraiser was co-hosted by Jarrett and John and Marcia Goldman, two wealthy financiers.

Someone told him to say that. He doesn't know what it means or understand the implication.


Which is exactly why he is the Democrat nominee.

ever feel like everything on the news is a lie? Down is up, up is down, left is right, and the sky is green. It’s so bad only a chicom thinks their propaganda is convincing anyone.

Most don’t realize how much money the old globalism guard is pumping into our news. Trump wants to cut off the globalism slush fund and there are trillions at stake for countries like China who get rich off of corrupt US politicians ramming through anti American legislation
