Biden, Democrats Play the Race Card: GOP Compared to Strom Thurmond


Democrats during an election year They are so predictable that you can set your clock by them. Only the rising and setting sun is more predictable. Every two or four years they use the same old playbook. “Vote us because Republicans are racists, sexists, homophobes.” This is a classic scare tactic that plays on the fears of minorities. In many cases it is effective. This election year the racial fear tactics have been boosted to the max as the Democrat Party is losing support from minorities. The latest attack against Republicans is not just predictable, but also incredibly nervy.

Joe Biden, who appeared at a fundraising event on Wednesday, did what he does best with Democrats: he called Republicans racist. Biden said that “the current GOP is worse than ‘ real racism'” that he was with as a Senator in the 1970s. He compared the Republican Party of today to Senator Strom Thurmond who served from 1954 until he died in 2003. Thurmond was a senator who supported segregationist policies. He ran for president in 1948 on the Dixiecrats ticket, a pro-segregationist third party. Biden said the following at the fundraiser:

“I have been a Senator since 1972. I served with true racists. I served with Strom Thurmond. I’ve served alongside all these guys who have terrible records in terms of race. Guess what? They are even worse. “These guys don’t believe in basic democratic values.”

Joe Biden’s memory is failing him again. Joe Biden might have said something wrong when he implied that one could be both a segregationist AND support “basic democratic values”. Joe Biden not only “served” in the Senate alongside Thurmond but he also hung out with him and eulogized him when he died. Joe Biden has a long history of racism, so to say that he can legitimately label others as racists is sheer hubris.

Let’s talk to Joe Biden about his early days as a senator. Biden addressed the issue of desegregation in 1977 at a congressional hearing, when the debate about school integration and busing was raging.

If we don’t do anything about it, my children will grow up in a jungle. The jungle is a racial one, with tensions so high they are bound to explode. We must act on this.”

Racial jungle? What is being suggested here? This was not an isolated incident. Biden lauded the former Senate Majority leader Robert Byrd who was an Exalted CYCLOP in the Ku Klux Klan and died in 2010. He called him “one my mentors” and remarked ruefully that “the Senate has been made a less place by his passing.” Biden was referring to a man who held the record for the longest Senate filibuster in American history. It was the Civil Rights Act of 1984. In 2003, Biden also praised Thurmond as a “brave, man who made a choice and moved on to the right side”. He also has one of these Senate Records. His filibuster against the Civil Rights Act was in 1957. Seen a pattern here?

Joe Biden has made some more recent remarks, such as describing Barack Obama, a young African-American, as “the first mainstream African American who is articulate, bright, and clean”, telling a 2012 black audience that Mitt Romney, the GOP presidential candidate, would “put y’all back in chains”, and telling morning radio DJ Charlamagne that “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him in 2019.

Biden’s remarks are yet another example that shows who is truly scared. Democrats. Joe Biden’s policies are causing black support for Democrats to plummet from 91 percent of the vote in 2020 to only 42 percent, according to the latest Associated Press – NORC Center for Public Affairs Research survey.

Republicans, get used to it. Joe Biden is going to continue to call you racists because, in his distorted mind, it’s still 1979 when Democrats weren’t called out for their bigoted remarks. If you are Joe Biden or the Democrats and you have a bad track record in terms of race, you can only do one thing: scare people. They will soon realize that you don’t have anything to offer.
