Biden Employs Indian Accent During N.H. Speech
The Weekly Standard ^ | January 26, 2012 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 01/26/2012 1:24:04 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

At an event today in Rochester, New Hampshire, Vice President Joe Biden used an Indian accent to imitate call service employees:

(Video at link):

This is not the first time Biden has made bizarre and inappropriate comments about Indians. In 2006, Biden came under fire for making this remark about Indian-Americans in Delaware: "I've had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

That’s a whole lot worse than “macaca” in my opinion

In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India.

Indian Americans moving from India to Delaware?

Uh, they were Americans before being imported into Delaware?

Is this PC speak, for people from India and everywhere else being flooded into the U.S.?

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” Biden said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

MLK had a dream.

Yep, Hillary mocked the “Negro dialect”, if I may use the term used by Harry Reid.

Democrats are not held to the same standards. George Allen says macaca and the liberals have a meltdown. The Washington Post ran a series of articles to educate all of us what macaca means, and why George Allen was a racist and a bigot.

Trent Lott said some things which were taken out of context at the 100th birthday party for Strom Thurmond, and the liberals have a meltdown about how he was a racist and a bigot.

When the Democrats, liberals, or favored “gay” people such as Barney Frank say and do outragous or even illegal things, it is swept under the rug and not held against them.

Only Republicans/conservatives/religious people are held to any standards. Unfortunately those standards are set by the liberals as they pass judgement on people and situations. They have a big megaphone in the MSM, and other areas such as TV shows and Hollywood idiots spewing forth on inane talk shows.

It’s OK...
Racism isn’t “Racism” if Done-While-Democrat. Just ask anyone at MSNBC/NBC! They’ll tell ya! (or they’ll be looking for new jobs in the Obama Economy!)

Now, imagine the media outcry had Newt or somebody said “Maccacca”!

You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

There are entire regions of people in the U.S. that no longer speak English, don't want to, signs in foreign languages, press 2 for English, government forms in foreign languages, all government offices/courts now have tax paid interpreters, millions entering illegally while being offered government coupons and benefits with millions more pouring in legally, while millions of Americans are unemployed or under employed.

And Joe Biden, from his tax paid secured gated mansion tells us he's not joking and finds this humorous?

Boy, these people are really on the cutting edge.

What a sad state of chaotic, corrupt BS.

I don’t believe Joe Biden has ever spoken to an Indian customer-service rep. People like him don’t have to return purchases, make their software work, or sort out banking issues.

He’s just repeating what other Democrats think is funny.

Wow! That was cold. Or it could just be there's a little nip in the air. It may seem cooler than it is though since I have a wet back from running from the car to the house in the rain. That'll be the last time I go out with my friends for lunch in the rain though. They really embarrassed me with the niggardly tip they left.

Today is Indian Independence Day.

For him to act this way today, of all days...I'm speechless.

India is the world's largest democracy. It is home to more than a sixth of all humans. It is one of our leading allies in the war against Islamic extremists.

And this is what Indians get on their birthday from our vice president?!!?

Joe Biden is more than just a jerk. He's a national disgrace.

I don't particularly remember Indian accents from when I was a kid. Now I don't just hear them at 7-11s. I hear them at the Post Office.
