Joe Biden doesn’t seem to have ever been one to mince words. He recently told Donald Trump:
‘Presumptuous of me to advise the President, I would literally stop tweeting and start focusing. The words of a president matter. They have enormous, enormous, enormous, reverberating sounds around the world, Every time a U.S. President speaks and says something, leaders and people around the world try to dissect what he means because it matters so much to their security, threats they face, whatever it is.’
Now, Biden, lovingly dubbed “Uncle Joe,” has some words for Russia and their blatant abuse of human rights. Specifically, officials in the Russian Republic of Chechnya have been detaining males they believe are gay.
A leading paper in Chechnya asserted that more than 100 people were being held and three males killed during the apprehension. The article further stated that some of the detainees were television personalities and religious officials.
Joe Biden was outraged at the report. He said:
‘I hope that the current administration lives up to the promises it has made to advance human rights for everyone by raising this issue directly with Russia’s leaders.’
He called the actions, “crimes of hate and inhumanity” and went on to assert:
‘The United States must lead the way to demand an end to these egregious violations of human rights.’
Biden didn’t bite his tongue, he also added that the notion of abusing, killing and/or otherwise mistreating people because of their sexual preference, made him feel “disgusted and appalled.” Biden closed by suggesting:
‘When faced with such crimes of hate and inhumanity, it is the responsibility of every person of conscience to speak out — to oppose this campaign of violence before it continues further. [The] human rights abuses perpetrated by Chechen authorities and the culture of impunity that surrounds them means that these hate crimes are unlikely to ever be properly investigated or that the perpetrators will see justice. But that does not mean that we should fail to defend basic human rights, fundamental freedoms, and universal values.’
