HOT TAKES: Biden's White House Address Was an Unmitigated Disaster
Share and Follow


Democrats in an election year. You can almost set your watch by them. The only thing more predictable is the sun rising and setting. Every two and four years, they return to the old tried and true playbook: “Vote for us because the Republicans are racist, sexist, bigoted homophobes.” It is a textbook scare tactic designed to play on the fears of minority communities. Unfortunately, in many cases, it works. But this election year, as the Democrat Party finds itself hemorrhaging minority support, the racial scare tactics are on steroids. The latest attack on Republicans is not only predictable but is extraordinarily nervy.

Appearing at a fundraiser on Wednesday, Joe Biden did what he and Democrats do best: call Republicans racist. Biden remarked that the “current GOP is worse than the ‘real racists'” that he served with as a young Senator in the 1970s. He compared today’s Republican Party to Sen. Strom Thurmond, who served in the Senate from 1954 until he died in 2003. As a Senator, Thurmond supported several segregationist policies and ran for president on a third-party, pro-segregationist ticket known as the “Dixiecrats” in 1948. At the fundraiser, Biden stated:

“I’ve been a senator since ’72. I’ve served with real racists. I’ve served with Strom Thurmond. I’ve served with all these guys that have set terrible records on race. But guess what? These guys are worse. These guys do not believe in basic democratic principles.”

Aside from the fact that Joe Biden may have let something slip when he suggested that you could be a segregationist and simultaneously support “basic democratic principles,” Joe’s remnants of a memory are failing him once again. Not only did Joe “serve” in the Senate with the likes of Thurmond, he palled around with them and eulogized them when they died. And given Joe Biden’s own personal track record, the idea that he could legitimately call others racists is the ultimate hubris. 

If Joe Biden wants to talk about his early days in the Senate, let’s talk about those days. In 1977, as the debate over school integration and busing raged, Biden, in a congressional hearing addressed the need to make the process of school desegregation orderly, stating:

“Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point. We have got to make some move on this.”

Racial jungle? What exactly is the suggestion here? This comment was certainly not a one-off. When former Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd, who had once been an Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan passed away in 2010, Biden glowingly eulogized him, calling him “one of my mentors,” and ruefully observing that “the Senate is a lesser place for his going.” Keep in mind, Biden was speaking of a man who holds the record for one of the longest Senate filibusters in American history. It was against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Incidentally, Biden’s buddy Strom Thurmond, who he also eulogized in 2003, calling him a  “brave man, who in the end made his choice and moved to the good side” also holds one of those Senate Records — his filibuster was against the Civil Rights Act of 1957. See a pattern?

Then there is Joe Biden’s more recent comments, like describing a young Barack Obama as, “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean,” telling a black audience in 2012 that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney would, “put y’all back in chains,” and of course, telling morning radio DJ Charlamagne Tha God that if blacks did not vote for him in 2020, then “you ain’t black!”

Biden’s comments are just another glaring example of who is really scared. That would be Democrats. Joe Biden’s policies have sent black support for the Democrat Party plummeting from an overwhelming 91 percent in 2020, to just 42 percent in the latest Associated Press – NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll.  

Get used to it Republicans. Joe Biden will continue to attack you as racists, because, in his addled mind, it is still 1979, when Democrats were never called out on their bigoted comments. When you have a track record on race like Joe Biden and the Democrats, and your presidency is quickly becoming thought of as the worst in American history, scaring the people who are quickly realizing you have nothing to offer them is the only thing you have.
