The phony presidential administration of Joe Biden and his Democrat puppeteers is intensifying its campaign to make the United States realize how racist it is, with the White House press secretary saying there is a “history of systemic racism” in the country.

Asked about inflammatory comments made by the new ambassador to the UN, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, about how racist the United States is, Jen Psaki defended her, according to an account at Dailymail.com.

“Is the president going to remove an African American woman with decades of experience in the foreign service who’s widely respected around the world from her position as ambassador to the UN? He is not,” Psaki said at Friday’s White House press briefing.

Thomas-Greenfield had declared that the “original sin” of slavery was woven into the nation’s foundational documents, implying of course that those documents, such as the Constitution, need to go.

Psaki initially stuck to defending Thomas-Greenfield, a former ambassador to the tiny African nation of Liberia, but went further when a questioner from Newsmax said her comments were “essentially the same lecture” that Chinese officials gave Secretary of State Anthony Blinken during a tense meeting in Alaska.

Asked whether Joe Biden thinks the nation’s founding documents are racist, Psaki responded vaguely: “I would say that I will leave my comments to speak for themselves. Certainly, I think most people recognize the history of systemic racism in our country and she was speaking to that.”

Thomas-Greenfield made her comments at Rev. Al Sharpton”s National Action Network’s 2021 virtual convention, on a day when a House committee held a hearing on reparations for slavery.
