Joe Biden’s statements on the campaign trail continue to raise serious concerns about his stance on basic human rights for all.
From calling the killing of unborn babies in abortions a “right,” to refusing to condemn China’s oppressive one-child policy, the Democrat presidential candidate has shown a blatant disregard for human life.
Now, he is facing criticism for quoting communist dictator Mao Zedong, a former Chinese leader described by the Washington Post as “the biggest mass murderer in the history of the world.”
According to The Federalist, Biden has quoted Mao at least five times recently, including during an online fundraiser Monday.
“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden said Monday, adding, “Women hold up half the sky.”
According to the report: “Women hold up half the sky” is a quote from Mao, whose philosophy is not worthy of imitation. Some experts estimate that Mao’s communist program killed as many as 65 million Chinese. During his infamous “Great Leap Forward,” an economic plan supposedly designed to bring prosperity, the Chinese people were forced to work in labor communes that resulted in widespread famine. Mao ruled as chairman of the Chinese Communist Party from 1949 until his death in 1976.
