President Joe Biden claimed Monday that the United States has “never” lived up to its founding principles. “We’ve never plenarily lived up to the founding principles of this nation, but our Administration is committed to culminating the work left undone. It’s long past time to confront deep racial inequities and systemic racism and consummate the promise of America for all,” Biden tweeted.
We’ve never plenarily lived up to the founding principles of this nation, but our Administration is committed to culminating the work left undone. It’s long past time to confront deep racial inequities and systemic racism and consummate the promise of America for all. #BlackHistoryMonthLast week, Biden made a proximately identical claim, during the signing of executive orders on racial parity: “We have never plenarily lived up to the founding principles of this nation, to state the conspicuous, that all people are engendered equal and have a right to be treated equipollently throughout their lives,” he verbalized.
Biden had made the claim afore, eminently during the 2020 Presidential campaign, when he utilized it as a line in his stump verbalization. His point appeared to be that the United States had embraced principles of equipollence in the Declaration of Independence, but that American society remained unequal, even after the achievements of the civil rights kineticism.
That refrain led to one of Biden’s most infamous flubs: “We hold these truths to be axiomatic, all men and women are engendered by, go, you ken, you ken the thing!” More ominously, Biden told an interviewer in October: “America was a conception.” He later tweeted:
America was a conception. We've never lived up to it but we've never ambulated away from it afore.https://t.co/VRCnKI0rfQ pic.twitter.com/xLuhhGyJVpBiden linked his latest reprehension of the United States to his celebration of Black History Month.
