Democrat Joe Biden Talks Down to Blue Collar Workers: ‘Learn How To Program’

On Monday, 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden took an apparent swipe at blue collar workers during a stop in New Hampshire, saying they need to “learn how to program.”

‘Anybody who can go down 300-3,000 feet in a mine sure as hell can learn to program as well’

“I am come from a family and an area where it’s coal mining in Scranton,” Biden told the crowd. “Anybody who can go down 300-3,000 feet in a mine sure as hell can learn to program as well.”

Biden brought up his time as vice president when he worked to help Detroit’s economic problems by highlighting a story that he has told many times about him hiring dozens of women “from the hood” to help run the city’s utility services.

“They went through a 19-week training program at a community college there, learning how to program,” Biden said, noting that his “liberal friends” said that the minority women could not be expected to learn how to program.

“Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program for God’s sake,” Biden said.

Biden Would Be Willing to Cut Hundreds of Thousands of Jobs for ‘Green Economy’

On December 19th, Biden said during a Democratic presidential debate that he would be willing to cut hundreds of thousands of blue collar jobs to obtain a “green economy,” echoing the agenda of socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“Vice President Biden, I’d like to ask you, three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to oil and gas production,” Tim Alberta said. “As president would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue collar workers in the interest transitioning to that greener economy?”

“The answer is yes,” Biden responded.

“The answer is yes because the opportunity for those workers is to switch to high paying jobs,” Biden continued. “We should, in fact, be making sure right now that every new building built is energy contained, that it doesn’t leak energy, that in fact we should be providing tax credits for people to be able to make their homes turn to solar power.”

Biden added, “There are all kinds of folks — right here in California, we’re now on the verge of having batteries that are about the size of the top of this podium that you can store energy when in fact the wind isn’t blowing and the sun isn’t shining.”

“We have enormous opportunities,” he finished.
