President Joe Biden is undoubtedly in full panic mode right now over potentially being “canceled” by the “woke” race-baiting left after it was revealed this week that his ancestors were slave owners.
Politico reported that it was confirmed in the new book “The Bidens” that Jesse Robinett, Biden’s great-great-great-grandfather, owned two enslaved people in Maryland. This appears to be a revered ancestor of the president, given the fact that his full name is Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.
Another ancestor of Biden’s reportedly owned a 14-year-old male slave in Maryland. This great-great-great-grandfather of Biden’s was Thomas Randle, who owned the teenager in 1850 in Baltimore County, according to slave schedules and census records.
This damning history of the Biden family was uncovered by Alexander Bannerman, a West Virginia genealogist who organized the first complete genealogy of Biden for publication. On top of everything else, Biden reportedly shares a “distant tie” to the wife of Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
Daily Mail contacted the White House for comment on this, but they have yet to hear anything back.
Elected officials have come under fire in recent years after their family ties to slavery were exposed. After it was found that former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) had ancestors who owned slaves, he apologized in a groveling July 2019 Medium post. He was running for president at the time in a bid that would fail miserably.
“We all need to know our own story as it relates to the national story, much as I am learning mine,” he wrote. “It is only then, I believe, that we can take the necessary steps to repair the damage done and stop visiting this injustice on the generations that follow ours.”
Both former President Barack Obama and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) also had ancestors who were slave owners.
“You know, I find myself in the same position as President Obama,” McConnell told reporters in July of 2019. “We both oppose reparations, and we both are the descendants of slave owners.”
This new information about Biden’s family owning slave owners is the last thing the president needs right now, given that he has come under fire for his treatment of minorities in the past.
Between 1971 and 1974, Biden even lived in a house that had a “restrictive covenant” that said it couldn’t be “owned or occupied by any Negro or person of Negro extraction.” Biden’s father had bought the home in 1969, and the future president then switched houses with his dad to remain within the council district he then served.
When this came to light in 1986, Biden fired back by claiming that his parents “filed a declaration of disavowal saying they find the restriction morally repugnant and they are not bound by it.” He also alleged that the deed his father signed did not include the restrictive covenant.
It remains to be seen how the “woke” left will react to this latest revelation of their beloved president.
