Joe Biden Backs Down to Leftist Critics After Calling Mike Pence a “Decent Guy”

Joe Biden had called Mike Pence a “decent guy.”

Former Vice President and potential Democratic 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden sought to explain himself in the face of a progressive Twitter mob on Thursday, who were incensed that he had described his Vice Presidential successor Mike Pence as a “decent guy.”

Biden was speaking about Pence’s speech at the annual Munich Security Conference in Nebraska, lamenting that the elitist liberals in attendance were less than thrilled about the American presidency Pence represented. Biden had earlier sought to play to the crowd at the event, describing his own country as an “embarrassment” under Donald Trump’s administration. The former Vice President made a passing reference to Pence being a “decent guy” while invoking his speech bombing with the audience.

Biden had developed somewhat of a professional relationship with Pence while transitioning out of the White House, assisting the incoming Vice President in moving into the Naval Observatory where the holder of the office usually resides.

Commentators and activists on the progressive left took offense to Biden’s passing compliment to Pence, describing it as an insult to LGBT individuals- who are apparently Pence’s mortal enemies, according to progressives such as New York actor Cynthia Nixon. The former candidate for Governor of the Empire State scolded Biden for his reference to Pence as anything but a villain, and Biden responded on Twitter, backing down and correcting his suggestion that Pence was “decent.”

The gaffe could be the latest strike against Biden’s potential 2020 candidacy in the eyes of progressives, who may be inclined to seek a younger and more politically correct candidate. Presumably, Democrats seeking to obtain the support of leftists like Nixon will have no choice other than to approach milquetoast conservatives such as Mike Pence with nothing other than contempt and personal hostility.

Left-Wing “Sleeping Giants” Deplatforming Activist Apologizes for “Diminishing” Minority Co-Founder

Matt Rivitz “gaslighted” the co-founder out of Sleeping Giants.

Published

Matt Rivitz, the nominal founder of far-left deplatforming organization Sleeping Giants, issued a detailed public apology to a woman who has recently identified herself as a co-founder of the group. Nandini Jammi went public with her claims of being sidelined as a key figure within Sleeping Giants last week, claiming that Rivitz, a San Francisco ad executive, had “gaslighted” her out of public acknowledgment for her role in the organization.

Rivitz’s public apology, released Monday, appeared to largely vindicate her claims, acknowledging that Jammi was a co-founder of the group who had never received the due credit she claimed to have deserved.

Sleeping Giants is a leftist deplatforming organization that seeks to defund conservative websites by haranguing advertisers over their ad placements on platforms such as Breitbart. Rivitz’s acknowledgment of sidelining the group’s female co-founder- coming only after Jammi published a Medium article that accused Rivitz of erasing her contributions to the group.

I want to show you how a woman of color almost disappeared from the movement she built, and what you can achieve when you refuse to follow the rules your white male “leader” sets for you,” said Jammi of Rivitz’ selfish desire for self promotion. Jammi also published a series of arrogant remarks she attributes to Rivitz, in which the leftist anti-free speech activist curtly told his younger co-founder to know her place.

Curiously, Sleeping Giants is registered as an LLC in California, making it likely that the deplatforming group is a for-profit entity. Rivitz, who went to great lengths to hide his identity as the figure behind the group, was only exposed as Sleeping Giants’ operator after a Breitbart News investigation. It’s still totally unclear who is funding the organization.
