Smilin’ Joe Biden says his ancestors were illegal immigrants

The Real Revo – by R.D. Walker

He implies yours were too. Therefore, we should all be more sympathetic. Here is Joe:

Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday that some of his ancestors came to the United States illegally and said it’s fruitless to compare the immigration system of the 1800s to today’s.  

“My great-great grandparents came escaping the famine and they didn’t all come here legally,” Biden said in response to a questioner who said her family came to the country legally from Ireland in the 1800s. “They didn’t all come legally. And the existence of the system isn’t all truncated like it is now. I’d check your ancestry to make sure that they did come legally if that’s a concern to you.”

The Great Famine in Ireland was 1845-1852. At that time, the only people restricted from uncontrolled immigration to the United States were criminals and wards of the state. If you were neither, all you had to do to legally immigrate to the US is show up.

Of course history isn’t a strong area for Biden. Speaking of the 1929 stock market crash, he said this…

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed,” Biden told Couric. “He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’”

Other than the fact that, in 1929, FDR wasn’t president, there was no television and nobody said anything about “princes of greed”, Biden was dead on.

  1. FDR was president and there is 57 states. Well they said so, so it must be true …….. right? Where do these people come from, mars?

    1. I second that, but then again look who his boss is. He’s a total fukin idiot but if you let him he’ll tell you he knows what the people want.

  2. Joe Bidens’ ancestors came from one of those DNA strands that have baffled scientist’s for centuries. One of the links is missing.

      1. This is what happens when families inbred. Mother nature throws up her hands and basically says “the hell with it”. There is only so much I can do!
