What?! Biden Says It’s Okay to Hit Women

It is bizarre to me that former Vice President Joe Biden is somehow still in this race. Sure, he has past experience in the White House and has been in politics most of his life. However, at some point, we have to question his mind, especially in light of some of the downright awful gaffes he has made during his campaign.

And his Wednesday night performance in the most recent Democratic primary debate proves this more than ever.

He actually said on Wednesday that men have a right to “raise a hand” to women and that they should “keep punching at it.”

I am really beyond words here. I mean, how does this even happen?

Biden and his campaign are no strangers to blunders, and even more serious ones like this. And while it has caused several to question his abilities, it also becomes somewhat of an endearing quality about the man. His mistakes prove that isn’t perfect, nor exceptionally eloquent. And for some, that makes him more relatable.

However, we doubt this latest statement by him is going to appeal to the public very well.

Biden said, “No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman in anger other than in self-defense and that rarely ever occurs.”

And if his endorsement of hitting a woman wasn’t enough, he continued by saying, “and so we have to just change the culture. Period. And keep punching at it and punching at it and punching at it.”

The implications of what he was saying were immediately heard by the crowd who let out a rather bad, fake laugh. He should have stopped there. But since he heard the laughter, he didn’t. Instead, he chose to add, “No, I really mean it. It’s a gigantic issue.”

As I said, he should have stopped. Using the phrase “punching at it” when talking about domestic violence and, in particular, violence against women, is bad enough. But then saying, “No, I really mean it,” just makes it so much worse.

And that wasn’t lost on those watching the debate.

Brigitte Gabriel commented on his performance by saying, “First, Joe Biden talks about how Men can only hit women in ‘Self defense.’ Then he proceeds to use the term “punching it, punching it, and punching it” in the very next sentence… That’s one heck of a front runner the Democratic Party has…”

And I doubt she was the only that took notice of this.

Just think about how big of an issue the #MeToo movement is right now. There is no doubt it will have some effect on the election.

And then we have to consider the sheer number of women candidates who are running against Joe. Do you think that just one of them might have been offended by that comment, if not all of them?

Now, in his defense, he did try and amend his mistake. He quickly added, “The fact is that what happens now is that we have to fundamentally change the culture, the culture of how women are treated.”

And he is correct. Maybe it should start with not insinuating that women can be hit at all or by not using violent language like “punching it” to refer to how we are to approach domestic violence change.

He was also correct when he said that education needs to change to incorporate equality for all children. But his statement of “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” seems to signify that maybe that isn’t his goal.

Sure, he claims to take a stand against inequality issues like race and abuse against women, and that is admirable. But nearly every time he speaks, he says things like this. And it must cause us to hesitate and ask why his mind would even go in that direction. If he really believes in what we think he is trying to say, why do things like “white kids” and hitting a woman in self-defense come out?

Furthermore, does anyone actually think things will get better if he wins the nomination or even the presidency? Because it won’t. He’s been making mistakes like this for years, even under Obama. And if these gaffes are any indication, they are only getting worse. How can we trust him to make a good impression on foreign trade deals when he says things like this?

The fact is, we can’t. And a man you can’t trust shouldn’t be president.

  1. Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I genuinely enjoy reading through your articles.
    Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with the same subjects?
    Many thanks!

  2. During my 30 years at the most dangerous job in the world where I was murdered and left for dead 5 times, shot 3 times [one night even bludgeoned till my heart & lungs stopped] I did in fact hit a few women. Of course they were assassins and members of organized crime and had guns pointed at me when my fist collided with their head.

    1. Biden didn’t say men can only hit women in ‘Self defense.’. He clearly said raise the arm in self defense which is totally instinctive to defense.

  3. Excellent blog here! Also your website loads up
    very fast! What host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  4. There is nothing controversial about what Biden said – striking ANYONE is (or should be) permissible only when defending oneself from a physical threat, whether it be male or female. Otherwise, striking anyone is inexcusable, and this applies to BOTH males and females.. If the “woke” equal rights activists don’t like it, then let them go to their safe space and have a good cry. Equal means exactly that, with all of its downside as well. I do agree, however, that in general, Biden’s mental state is in serious question. He makes comments that are beyond ridiculous, and there is no reason to think that things will improve if he gets elected. We’ve already got a person in office who doesn’t know when to keep his mouth shut, and we certainly don’t need another.

    1. I am a 91 year old female. The only violence I have observed throughout my life has been mental, rather than physical , performed by shrieking mentally abusive women whose patience I admired, because in their place, I’d punched soundly and effectively. I’ll be somewhat wurprised if my comment will even be publiched in this day and age of “poor me and me-too” climate.

  5. Women do assault men, and with extreme violence. The “don’t hit a woman under any circumstances” went away during the “women’s liberation movement” of the 1970s. If a woman strikes a man (as they often do when no one can see them doing so) the men should not be punished for defending themselves. The “poor me, pity me, believe everything that I tell you is the ‘Gospel truth'” days have gone the way of the wind with the “me too” movement. This is why I no longer date or have any ongoing relationships with women. I am a man that has “Gone My Own Way” (a.k.a. MGTOW) and don’t regret it for a minute.

    Go MGTOW

  6. Let’s face it – Biden’s mind and thought process are quickly deteriorating and he needs medical attention ASAP!! Obviously, dementia or some other mental condition is affecting him!! He should “get-out” of this DemonRat race – as he is never going to be in the Oval Office!! The *Biden Clan* should worry about their corrupt and nefarious affairs in the Ukraine and China!! I’m sure laws-were-broken and he took advantage of his VP position in the Kenyan “mooslim’s” regime!!

  7. I’m not sure exactly why but this site is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  8. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue along with your website in internet explorer, might check this?
    IE nonetheless is the marketplace chief and a big part of people will omit your great writing due to this problem.

  9. My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be what precisely I’m
    looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on many of the
    subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome web log!
