“It is our English jurisprudential culture, our European culture that says it is all right.”
This is incredible. Biden takes a cheap shot at Betsy DeVos, implying that she doesn’t care about the victims of sexual assault.
The College Fix reports:
Joe Biden blames English legal traditions for campus sexual assault
It would be a lot easier to stamp out campus sexual assault if we just got rid of pesky impediments like the presumption of innocence and right to see evidence against you.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, the architect of the Obama administration’s campus sexual misconduct policy, is once again lamenting that accused college students aren’t automatically found guilty.
He told a New Hampshire town hall that “English jurisprudential culture” is to blame for the supposed epidemic of campus rape, the Associated Press reports. He previously compared defenders of due process to “Nazis” in a conference call with anti-rape activists.
Biden’s remarks are getting attention because about 20 seconds of the Dec. 30 town hall were deceptively edited to suggest he looks down on cultures from Africa and Asia:
A review of the full video shows that Biden was commenting on changing the culture around violence against women. In discussing the difficulty victims face reporting sexual assault on college campuses, he said, “Folks, this is about changing the culture, our culture, our culture, it’s not imported from some African nation or some Asian nation. It is our English jurisprudential culture, our European culture that says it is all right.”
Remarkable that Biden town hall clip–misleadingly edited to falsely suggest he was a racist–was actually Biden attacking DeVos & blaming “our English jurisprudential culture” for “culture” of campus sexual assault. (Below is closing 3.30 of segment.)https://t.co/byOQsYsxGB
