    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden pledged to allot relief to small businesses on a racialized basis in a video posted to left-wing Big Tech platform Twitter on Sunday, stating that “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses.” Biden made the remarks in a video detailing his plan to rebuild the economy after a year of crippling COVID lockdowns, many of which were supported by Biden himself. “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and...

    President-elect Joe Biden says his priorities to grow businesses will only be for some Americans, not all Americans. “Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild,” the vice president said. What about white men who own small businesses? Will they be left to fend for themselves? Why is the president-elect judging small business owners by the color of their skin?

    Depending on how broadly one wants to define “helped,” this description could encompass 73 million Americans. It could go well beyond Trump administration alumni to include anyone insufficiently supportive of the Great Awokening, and perhaps the whole point is to instill the maximum level of fear in the greatest number of political apostates. This is alarming. Americans of all political backgrounds should seek to reverse this lamentable trend for several reasons.

    Let's be honest: The Democrats and the media want the economy to crash before Joe Biden enters the White House in January. They have been rooting against the economy for four years now. The problem is the economy isn't crashing and burning -- just the opposite. The pandemic lockdowns flattened the economy earlier this year, and there's lots of heavy lifting to do to get all the jobs back. But they are coming back, and Trump will be bequeathing to Biden the swiftest recovery from a deep recession in modern history. The last quarter came in at a record 33...
