Joe Biden says no man has a right to lay his hands on a woman

Democratic 2020 hopeful Joe Biden has denounced men that lay their hands on women inappropriately, during a speech at the Biden Courage Awards ceremony on Tuesday.

Biden said that women who suffer sexual assaults are victims in “a white man’s culture” that turns a blind eye to sexual assault and misconduct.

The former Vice President seems to have forgotten the string of various sexual assault allegations that have been repeatedly levied at him over the years. reports: Biden says he regrets he didn’t give Anita Hill the “hearing she deserved” when she shared her story of sexual harassment in the 1991 Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas three decades ago.

“I wish I could have done something,” he said. “To this day I regret I couldn’t come up with a way to give her the kind of hearing she deserved.”

Biden was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee at the time of the hearing.

Later, the former vice president, citing cases of domestic violence in the early 1900s, said English Jurisprudential culture, “a white man’s culture,” has got to change.

“In the 1900s so many women were dying at the hands of their husbands because they were chattel, just like the cattle, or the sheep, that the court of Common Law decided they had to do something about the extent of the deaths. You know what they said? No man has a right to chastise his woman with a rod thicker than the circumference of his thumb. This is English Jurisprudential culture, a white man’s culture. It’s got to change. It’s got to change,” Biden demanded.

Biden said no man has a right to hit a woman, “unless it’s in self-defense.”

No man has a right to lay a hand on a woman, no matter what she’s wearing, she does, who she is, unless it’s in self-defense. Never,” he said.

Watch Biden’s full remarks at the New York event:


  1. He’s mentally ill as well as a groper.

    How come the only ones that float to the top in the National Democrat Socialist are rich old white pervs?

    • the irish are no more fucked up than you wanker…. now shut the fuck up…you are embarrassing yourself on here again.. as fucking usual

      • I am not a henchmen for the enemies of Christ. That is all you , you miserable dirty filthy Mick. Why don’t you go drown yourself in a barrel of booze, get behind the wheel and rundown that filthy prick Steve Bannon? Do something useful for once in your rotten stinking life.

  2. But it is perfectly fine to put your hands on little children, smell their hair, tell them “you don’t know how horny I am right now” That is all perfectly normal. Got It.

  3. Dear Uncle Joe ~ The “no thicker than his thumb” rule actually comes from Jewish Pharasaical law … not England!
