The Biden campaign has yet again failed to do their due diligence in preparing their babbling candidate for an online fundraiser. Biden cited a quote made famous by Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong during a digital fundraising speech with former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden said on Monday evening to the 14 wealthy donors who attended the digital fundraising session.

According to the Washington Examiner, Biden then cited the Chinese proverb, “Women hold up half the sky.” The well-known comes from a proclamation by Mao in the mid-20th century that helped grant certain rights to women in China. The phrase became commonplace in China at the time, often appearing on pieces of propaganda in factories or other industrial areas.

The quote may be no accident. Anita Dunn, a senior adviser to the Biden campaign, infamously praised Mao in 2009, when she was Obama’s White House communications director, calling him one of her two “favorite political philosophers”…

Mao, she said, was one of “two people I turn to most,” along with Mother Theresa. Dunn later claimed that she was joking, but few believed her, given her earnest praise for Mao’s relentless pursuit of the communist revolution in China, against long odds, as reported by Breitbart.

Mao would later go on to become one of the biggest mass murderers in human history. His horrific legacy didn’t stop Biden from quoting him on Monday. Neither has it kept him from quoting the dictator before; he’s used this quote from Mao at least four times previously. In 2015, as vice president, Biden tweeted the quote in recognition of International Women’s Day.

Unfortunately, the human rights abuses of the Chinese Communist Party did not die with Mao. While Biden quotes the communist dictator, the Trump administration has sanctioned China over its mass enslavement and other abuses of Muslim Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region.
