At a screening at the White House of the cinematic masterpiece, Till, on 2/16/2023, Biden told a largely black audience that he thinks there are white families in the U.S., now, who would like to participate in spectacle lynchings of innocent black men.

You can also see it on C-Span.
Their crimes? Trying to vote. Trying to go to school. Trying to own a business. Trying to re-—preach the gospel. False—false accusations of murder, arson, robbery. Lynched for simply being Black, nothing more. With white crowds, white families gathered to celebrate the spectacle, taking pictures of the bodies and mailing them as postcards.
Hard to believe, but that’s what was done. And some people still want to do that.

Biden’s 2012 "They're gonna put y'all back in chains!" was humorous for its absurdity.
This, however, is sick, Radio Rwanda–style messaging, as Tucker would say.
