Joe Biden Fails to Commemorate 77th Anniversary of D-Day, Instead Tweets About Tulsa Race Riot

On Sunday, Joe Biden did not release any statement commemorating the anniversary of D-Day, but did post a video about his visiting with survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot, as reported by Breitbart.

June 6th was the 77th anniversary of D-Day, the largest seaborne invasion in history, which marked the turning of the tide against the Axis Powers in World War II. The U.S.-led invasion of Normandy eventually led to the liberation of France, with Nazi Germany falling less than a year later.

However, while Biden failed to mention this historic anniversary, he instead tweeted a video of him meeting with survivors of an event that happened 100 years ago, declaring that “I met with survivors of the Tulsa Massacre this week to help fill the silence. Because in silence, wounds deepen. And, as painful as it is, only in remembrance do wounds heal.”

In the video, Biden claims that America has a past filled with sins along racial lines, and that “you can’t pretend it didn’t happen,” before baselessly claiming that “it can happen again.”

The Tulsa Race Riot occurred when numerous clashes broke out between black and White Americans in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, from May 31st to June 1st of 1921. The Greenwood District, which had come to be known as “Black Wall Street,” was almost completely destroyed by fire that night, and around 300 black Americans were killed. By contrast, well over 4,000 American troops, of all colors, were killed in the D-Day landing.

The clear shift in priorities from the Trump Administration further confirms that Joe Biden, along with his Vice President Kamala Harris, has an overwhelmingly negative view of the United States. He has repeatedly, and falsely, claimed that the United States is a racist nation, built on slavery and discrimination. He has smeared the names of the Founding Fathers by deriding them as slave-owners, and has overturned efforts by the Trump Administration to clarify America’s history of fighting racism, such as deleting the 1776 Commission Report from the White House website.
