Joe Biden shamelessly declared his total lack of sympathy for young Americans in January, openly stating that he had “no empathy” for the concerns of the nation’s youth.
Biden was promoting his book in an event with a Los Angeles Times journalist, and struck a tone that could be called completely callous about Millennial and Generation Z Americans.
“The younger generation now tells me how tough things are—give me a break. No, no, I have no empathy for it, give me a break.”
Biden went on to claim that Americans of previous generations were better at improving their life circumstances and “changing the world.” The former Vice President conveniently chose not to mention the far more generous economic circumstances enjoyed by those of his own generation, that included far more affordable costs of living, education, housing and better job prospects.
If Biden were to run a presidential campaign exclusively seeking to advance the interests of older Americans-writing off the youth of the United States as mere whiners- it could open a path for President Trump and other conservatives to widen their appeal to American youth. Tucker Carlson has spoken of policies that would enable the right wing to appeal to young Americans, including holding the handsomely debt-funded and left-wing university system accountable for a portion of the massive student loan debt incurred by young Americans.
It’s possible that the geriatric career politician could face a backlash in the Democratic Party for his callous slight to young people, a critical constituency on the left. Should Biden defeat President Trump in the 2020 election, he would be sworn in as the oldest President in American history at the beginning of his term, being a ripe 77 years old on inauguration day.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
