Skip to comments.Biden on homophobia: 'I've had it up to here with cultural norms'
Posted on 04/05/2014 6:12:55 PM PDT by Salman
Vice President Joe Biden has never lacked for passion. And his occasional failure to restrain his enthusiasm has sometimes gotten him in trouble. But his over-the-top rhetoric was right on point when he gave the keynote address Saturday evening at the Human Rights Campaigns gala in downtown Los Angeles.
Biden told a story I had never heard, about the first time he saw two men kissing (at minute 14 of the video above). He was in junior high, and his father was driving him to apply for a lifeguard job.
We stopped at a red light and I looked over to my left and there were two men kissing goodby. And it was the first time Id seen that. And my father looked at me and said, They love each other. Thats the end. Thats the end.
Pretty progressive for the mid-1950s.

Video at link, but I didn't watch the whole thing. The printed article is more than enough.
Interesting he was at an event for the bunch the IRS “leaked” info to about who donated to prop 8.
in the 50’s most dads would have beat the guys to a pulp for doing that in public, let alone in front of a kid.
I’m pretty tired of ‘cultural norms’ also such as Political Correctness.
When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didnt just talk about the princes of greed, Biden told Couric. He said, Look, heres what happened.
Biden -- he just makes stuff up.
Like Barry, “Plugs” is a liar.
Biden is a liar. And if he is telling the truth, he is sick.
I think this is an attempt to say “I was pro-perversion before Hitlery!”
Yes he’s as truthful as the Grifters Clinton.
BS Joe. Back then homos were deeper in the closet than the United States is in debt today.
Cultural norms? How is for God’s Law?
Geez, I hope that was when he was in Scranton, and not DE! /s
BTW, this squarely puts Slow Joe against his so called beloved Catholic Church.
When is the bishop of Wilmington going to lay down the law on his head? /s
Hey Biden, Ive had it up to here with your idiocy..does this jackass even realize that people around the world are laughing at him because he is a moron or is he too stupid to realize that
You’re right, never happened.
Explains a lot about this guy
Can you imagine if Bush had said that?
He would have been pilloried for : #1 saying that FDR talked when the stock market crashed. The stock market crashed in 1929, when President Hoover was president. FDR did not become pres. till March 1933.
#2, he would have been mocked for saying that FDR went on TV. TV broadcasting as we know it did not exist at that time. FDR spoke to the nation by radio.
But, since Biden is a good Democrat, none dare give him the Dan Quayle treatment over that statement.
And I’ve “had it to here” with Biden. And the horse he rode in on.
He just makes shit up.
Heres what Biden had to say about Employment Non-Discrimination Act, starting at minute 12 of the video at the top of this post:
My grandkids, my children, and their kids are going to be shocked, it shocks the conscience that this very moment in American history, in some states, an employer can fire you just because of who you are, or who you love. Its close to barbaric. I mean think about this, a man, no I really mean this.
Really, Joe? Tell that to the ex-CEO of Mozilla, ya moron.
I don’t believe a word of it.
If the story is in any way true, it will be someone else’s and he stole it.
If Joe Biden is so angry about cultural norms, in the area of homosexuality, how does he explain that he voted FOR the Defense of Marriage Act??????
This one takes the cake. In the mid-50s, the Biden family had been in Delaware for two years. Neither Wilmington nor Scranton PA would have been the scene for two males kissing in public.
Plugs is nothing but an IDIOT and a LIAR.
Who gives a damn about the newest lie from the BRAIN DEAD.
It’s like something out of Das Kapital. He’s had it up to here with cultural norms? Oh, well then screw the pledge, screw the flag, screw civil discourse, screw everything. He complains about other countries not having ‘civil societies’. This braindead moron fails to realize that civil society is itself a cultural norm.
Jamaica should demand a full apology from the clown. How can he just go on a stage, insult a country that is by no means an enemy of ours, and be allowed to get away with it? Notice ZERO mention of Arab countries.
Biden, what is barbaric is the acceptance of carnal acts against nature. You know, since it was a trope of barbaric, archaic societies like Sodom & Gomorrah, Canaan, Sparta. We evolved and realized that killing our kids, and having sex with camels was ill-advised. Now the libs are pulling the entire globe back into the filthy bathwater of 2000 years ago!
Female genital mutilation? How about female full body mutilation in the womb? Can’t mention that, can you, plugs? This uncharitable, vacuous, stain on the country, along with his leech wife can go to hell.
At least you got rid of one cultural norm, Joe. It used to be normal to select at least competent people for the position of VP. That tradition is as good as dead.
yeah right. homos never kissed in public in the 60’s. that story is just as disgusting as his “put yall back in chains.”
does anyone know how a mental defective can become the vp of the us?
It happened at Home Depot. The homos heard you could buy a cocking gun there...
More than a few states you’d have been lynched for it.
Transparent lies are the most insulting of all.
Biden lies. First off, no two men would kiss on a public street in the 1950s. Second, the father would NOT have said that. Joey is lying just like he did in college when he plagiarized. Just more of the same bull he always pedals.
oh, and STAND UP, CHUCK!
Funny, how he kept this story bottled up for ALL those years. [/s]
>>Biden told about the first time he saw two men kissing . He was in junior high, and his father was driving him to apply for a lifeguard job.<<
Old Joe is off his meds again. Was this the same job he claimed he got in Scranton, PA when he was living in Wilmington, DE? And who would hire a 12-14 year old as a lifeguard?
heck, how does a mental defect become president?
The bishops of Wilmington are selected by the RINO aristocracy. They taught today’s Communists how to purge Conservatives.
Joe Biden wouldn’t know a cultural norm if it walked up to him and shoved a rubber fist up his @ss.
No PDA I don’t care if you are homosexual, heterosexual or asexual, bisexual, keep your lips to yourself
ever heard behind closed doors
why do people have to be such frickin exhibitionists
“and then I wuz like I GOTTA GET ME SUMB DAT”....
He got it so bad it nearly rectum....
Maybe he’s getting his lies mixed up. I heard that his dad went out on the balcony, put up that double barreled shotgun and let off 2 blasts. He didn’t need an AR15.
yup. biden’s’dad was a pervert, if true. if not joe just keeps on lying and now dragging dead relatives’ reputations into the muck with him.
i’m pretty effin tired of joe biden.
When I first read the headline, I thought it said that he had it up to here with cultural MORONS.
I’m like “You’re talking about yourself, dude!”

What a liar.
He saw two men kissing in the ‘50s just like Clinton saw black churches burning.
