In recent days, former Vice President Joe Biden, the Delaware Democrat who’s now, suddenly, considering a run for the White House after ‘allowing’ Hillary Clinton the party’s nomination in 2016, drew the ire of the party’s increasing Left-wing base.
His political crime was almost the same as a real crime: He dared to characterize his predecessor, Vice President Mike Pence, as a “decent man.”
“The fact of the matter is it was followed on by a guy who’s a decent guy, our vice president, who stood before this group of allies and leaders and said, ‘I’m here on behalf of President Trump,’ and there was dead silence. Dead silence,” Biden said during a speech in Omaha, Neb., in response to a speech the Veep gave at a recent security forum in Munich, Germany.
“Whoa. Hang on there, Mister. Who do you think you are praising a racist/bigot/Nazi/homophobe like Pence?!” Cue the outrage!
Biden, who served under arguably the most corrupt president in the history of our republic, was immediately set upon by the perpetually angry Left, led this time by “Sex in the City” actress, failed New York gubernatorial candidate, and noted “LGBTQ” advocate Cynthia Nixon.
“.@JoeBiden you’ve just called America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader ‘a decent guy.’ Please consider how this falls on the ears of our community,” she wrote in a tweet to Biden.

It didn’t take long for the former VP, who has been called out many times in the past for his creepy behavior around young girls, to beg forgiveness.
“You’re right, Cynthia. I was making a point in a foreign policy context, that under normal circumstances a Vice President wouldn’t be given a silent reaction on the world stage,” he wrote. “But there is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the Vice President.”

But there is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the Vice President.

But Biden’s creepiness is just one aspect of the abject hypocrisy of the Left when it comes to defining what is and is not ‘decent.’
Touching little girls and young women inappropriately that, if you were anyone other than a U.S. senator or vice president would get your clock cleaned by dad or husband, or arrested, is okay.
Being a serial philanderer like Bill Clinton, who has also been credibly charged with rape by one of his alleged victims, Juanita Broaddrick, even in the “#MeToo” era — not a problem. In fact, as The Washington Times reported in September, not a single Democrat wanted to read her testimony against then-President Clinton during Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation into various Clinton-era scandals — to include Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, who masterminded the hit job against Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings.
And, of course, to Democrat death merchants there is nothing more ‘decent’ than killing a newborn child straight out of the mother’s womb if, you know, mom and doc are on board with it.
This act of “decency” was described in detail by Virginia Gov. Ralph “Blackface” Northam, who remains in office despite his professed support for infanticide and his overtly racist medical school photo.
By the way, Christians like VP Pence don’t “hate” people based on their sexual preference or orientation, like Nixon and the rest of America’s Left-wing outrage mob claims. Christians don’t agree with some lifestyle choices such as gay marriage because their god teaches that marriage is a sacrosanct institution only between a man and a woman, but neither God nor Jesus taught that Christians should kill or harm non-believers and those who don’t adhere to their faith principles.
That would be radical Islamists. We await Nixon’s condemnation of them (but we’re not holding our breath).
