US President Joe Biden on Wednesday promised to "defeat" "white supremacism" and "domestic terrorism" two weeks after the breach on Capitol Hill in which BLM activists were seen inciting violence.
“Today we see the emergence of political extremism, white supremacism and domestic terrorism ,” Biden noted in his inaugural speech. “We have to face them and we will defeat them,” he pledged.
“It is the day of democracy, a day of history and hope […] It is not the triumph of a candidate, it is the triumph of a cause. The will of the people has been heard […] Democracy is precious and fragile, but it has won.”
But Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday said Biden’s war on so-called “white supremacy” was in fact a war on 74 million ordinary Americans, waged by the FBI and Pentagon. “There’s a new regime in power, starting today, and they seem to be planning to accelerate things dramatically. They are getting the FBI and the Pentagon involved in this hunt for people who may criticize them,” Carlson said.
The year’s first migrant caravan was in the news already two days before President-elect Biden’s inauguration. Biden has promised to take a positive approach to immigration Newsmax reported. “There will be no deportations in my first 100 days,” Biden had promised earlier.
A Honduran migrant at the Guatemalan border had clearly welcomed the invitation: “The new [US] president says we have 100 days to cross the American border and find refuge.”
Meanwhile, the Washington Free Beacon reported that two top incoming White House environmental aides have blamed “systemic racism” as a driver of climate change.
President-elect Joe Biden named progressive policy adviser Maggie Thomas as Office of Domestic Climate Policy chief of staff and climate advocate Cecilia Martinez as “senior director for environmental justice” on Thursday. Both have cited racial inequality as being responsible for climate change, arguing that US environmental policy must focus on “racial and economic justice”.
“Unless intentionally interrupted, systemic racism will continue to be a major obstacle to creating a healthy planet,” Martinez said in a 2019 press release. This requires “massive” government spending.
It mirrors the Green New Deal, a $94 trillion bill introduced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2019. The legislation called for the “economic transformation” of the United States to “comprehensively address the most pressing, intersectional environmental justice issues” by giving federal subsidies to minority groups.
Donald Trump did not attend the Biden inauguration. “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” Trump had tweeted earlier.
