Michael Moore runs with Joe Biden’s ‘back in chains’ comment

Never mind that the White House itself has chosen to double down on Vice President Joe Biden’s comment to a crowd in Virginia Tuesday that a President Mitt Romney would “put y’all back in chains.” Moore, Biden admirer and author of “Stupid White Men,” has deemed the backlash “made-up outrage,” picked up the tasteless metaphor and run with it.

When u finish college $100K in debt, YOU are in chains. When u are denied medical help, YOU are in chains. When u r evicted, YOU r in chains

When a political party wants control of your uterus, YOU are in chains. When u haven't been given a stellar education, YOU are in chains…

When the avg. net worth of white households in this country is $110,000 and for blacks, it is $4,995, those black citizens are in chains.

The transparent race baiting of Biden’s slavery metaphor was bad enough, but worse still is how casually the metaphor can be extended, apparently with a straight face. Student loans are the equivalent of chains? Who fit those chains, exactly?

Speaking of jobs…

#WeAreInChains You might want to blame the person who promised to fix the economy if you can't find a decent job.
