Biden: Jews Behind Gay Marriage

Joe Biden has a very long history of putting his foot in his mouth. Be it when he called his running mate "Barack America," or when he stated, "You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent to fully... I'm not joking."

On Tuesday he did it again, this time when giving a speech about the impact that Jewish Americans have had on American culture. The Vice President started out by lauding the great achievements made by Jews in the United States. Then, speaking off-the-cuff, he veered into odd territory.

Discussing the impact of Jewish people and social media on gay marriage, Biden explained, "It wasn’t anything we legislatively did. It was ‘Will and Grace,’ it was the social media. Literally. That’s what changed peoples’ attitudes. That’s why I was so certain that the vast majority of people would embrace and rapidly embrace [gay marriage].

“Think behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry. The influence is immense, the influence is immense. And, I might add, it is all to the good,” he said.

Whether this is precisely what Biden actually meant or if he was going after a different point, but misspoke, has not been released.

The Vice President next name-dropped famous Jewish people who have had a major impact on American culture.

He finished by saying, “So I think you, as usual, underestimate the impact of Jewish heritage. I really mean that. I think you vastly underestimate the impact you’ve had on the development of this nation. We owe you, we owe generations who came before you."


  1. So Jews run the media, right? I thought all these nut-jobs were dead or locked up in a secure compound in Gitmo.

  2. "Gay marriage" is an oxymoron. Marriage is already defined between a MAN & a WOMAN. Anyone who doesn't understand this concept is a complete fool.

  3. they were! theyre behind all that destabilizes us
