From The Atlantic DON’T BOTH-SIDES THIS ONE, JOE Biden’s speech about anti-Semitism is a test of courage as well as compassion. MAY 03, 2024 Updated at 9:05 a.m ET on May 3, 2024 President Joe Biden will make a speech on anti-Semitism on Tuesday, May 7, by way of observing the Holocaust remembrance in the Jewish religious calendar. If the speech is not to fail, or even backfire, the president needs to be very clear in his mind about what he has to say, and why. FOLLOW THE ATLANTIC The questions Biden needs to answer on Sunday are not questions about beliefs or values. They are not questions about himself or his personal commitments. They are questions about American liberalism in general, about its ability to defend its stated commitments against challengers who plead victimhood as their justification. Biden hit a lot of the right themes in informal remarks at the White House yesterday. But there’s more to say, and it should be said clearly and without any Trumpian caveats about “good people on both sides.”
