Joe Biden’s Ancestors Owned Multiple Slaves, Genealogists Reveal

Wester Journal: President Joe Biden, who often touts his Irish ancestry as part of his political schtick, has another side to his family lineage that he doesn’t like to publicize — namely that some of his ancestors were slave owners.

Jesse Robinett, Biden’s great-great-great-grandfather, owned two slaves in Maryland in the 1800s, according to a Politico story adapted from the new book, “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power,” by Ben Schreckinger.

Another great-great-great-grandfather of Biden’s, Thomas Randle, is reported to have owned a 14-year-old boy as a slave in Baltimore County, Maryland, in 1850, according to census records and slave schedules at the time. more here

  1. I don’t blame people for what their ancestors did in previous generations, but in this case I will make an exception and play by the rulebook they judge my white ass by (and my ancestors didn’t even own slaves). Biden is the white face of white supremacy.

  2. that makes 2 for 2. harris’ family was one of the largest slave owners in Jamaica. I don’t mean they had only one large slave- they make the bidens look like pikers- they had over 30 slaves. Neither of them are descended from slave owners. They are both descendants of slave owners. Don’t let the TV trick you.

  3. Maybe the desire or willingness to enslave others is a genetically inherited personality trait. It is, after all, a planet-wide phenomenon that is as old as humanity.

  4. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills
    and also with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one
    today.

  5. Biden should resign immediately for being a slave-owner descendent (after all, statues of former slave owners were torn down). Then when Harris takes over, hit her with how her ancestors owned slaves. She has to resign. Then we get Pelosi. Surely there has got to be something in her past that she can be cancelled on.

  6. Joe Biden’s great-great-great-grandfather, Thomas Randle, is reported to have owned a 14-year-old boy as a slave. That explains Joe’s proclivity towards pedophilia. It’s in his genes.

  8. Democrats are the only current political party that owned slaves.

    No Republican ever owned slaves.

    Old habits are hard to break, apparently…
