Former Vice President Joe Biden has a long history of making questionable comments in regards to other races and racial relations, he has had strong ties to multiple members of the Ku Klux Klan, even eulogizing multiple former KKK members, and has been known to defend KKK related groups. For half a century Biden has somehow gotten away with consistently making racist remarks, and ironically, President Trump is the one labeled a racist. Why does Jim Crow Joe get a pass for the racist ways of his time as a politician? The following video is a compilation of racist comments Biden has made throughout his time in politics, and then we’ll break down snippets of his segregationist past.
If you haven’t watched the First 2020 Presidential Debate between The President and Former Vice President, Biden made a statement that was completely false saying, that upon hearing of the death of the girl in 2017 in Charlottesville, “he said they [white supremacists and neo-Nazi’s] were very fine people.” This has been debunked and disproved by many videos, press conferences, and White House statements; in reality President Trump condemned white supremacists directly following the death in Charlottesville. However, Biden claimed it was the reason he was running for president. Ironically, in July of 1993, then Senator Joe Biden referred to a Klan related group, The United Daughters of the Confederacy1, as “fine people” while defending their need for Federal funding:
Joe Biden also was extremely close with his “friend” and “mentor” former Exalted Cyclops of the KKK Senator Robert Byrd, and actually did the eulogy at Sen. Byrd’s funeral in July of 2010.
The most surprising thing about this relationship, is that it is not looked down upon by Liberals who knew about Senator Byrd. Apparently, all Byrd had to do was denounce his old ways, and make amends “accepted by the black community.” I don’t see how this only applies to Leftists, but it seems you can wipe your slate of a life of hate as long as you’re a Democrat.
Senator Byrd is not the only segregationist that Joe Biden associated with, along with a slue of staunch racists, throughout his nearly half a century in politics. According to the Washington Post2, Biden worked on actively fighting against busing, making statements about the black community and racial relations that seem unimaginable if you were only aware of the Biden shown to you by the media.
Biden told a Delaware based newspaper in 19753, “I do not buy the concept, popular in the ’60s, which said, ‘We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race,’ I don’t buy that.” He added, “I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”
In 2019, Biden went as far as to say, “our president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.” Interestingly enough, Biden spent much of his early days looking up to Senator Wallace (D-AL), even praising the segregationist4. “I think the Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace — someone who’s not afraid to stand up and offend people, someone who wouldn’t pander but would say what the American people know in their gut is right,” Biden told the Philadelphia Inquirer in 19755 when discussing why liberals should not “apologize for locking up criminals.”
Praising George Wallace yet again when speaking to the Senate in 19816 in a hearing he was running that was supposed to be about the constitutionality of busing, he jumped from busing and school integration to the completely unrelated death penalty in the blink of an eye. He went as far as to say the rehabilitation aspect of the criminal justice system is not possible, and that it is actually better to admit you don’t know how to rehabilitate the criminals and therefore have to have an increased death penalty rate.
At a fundraiser in New York in June of 20197, Biden fondly recalled his time he served in the Senate with James O. Eastland, a white supremacist Democrat from Mississippi saying, “I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me ‘boy,’ he always called me son.” This is the same Eastland, who referred to Brown vs Board of Education as a “monstrous crime” because he was against the integration of our children. In fact, in the 70’s when Biden was actively trying to stop busing in efforts to stop desegregation, he tried to enlist the help of Senator Eastland8 along with other segregationists.
Washington Monthly described between staunch racists9 as a “dynamic between Eastland and a young Irish senator from Delaware named Joe Biden10. In reading through the 30 pieces of correspondence between the two senators from the mid-1970s, I noticed that almost all of them are explained by Biden’s desire to win appointments to various committees. In addition to being the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Eastland was also the leader of the Steering Committee that decided on committee assignments, so Biden wrote him a letter immediately after being elected and told him what his preferences were. […] Then Biden wrote him another letter thanking him for his assignments”
1977, during a congressional hearing on anti-busing legislation, continuing with his fellow segregationists in this fight, said he wanted to “ensure we do have orderly integration of society,” and pointed out he was “not just talking about education but all of society.” Then he said11, “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.”
In June of 1985, Joe Biden said on the Senate floor, “We already have a n***** mayor, we don’t need anymore n***** big shots,” as shown in the video below.
Biden, while campaigning for the presidency in Alabama in 198712, claimed that he’d been the recipient of an award from Wallace in 1973, which I cannot confirm, but the claim in itself is not exactly something to brag about.
Historian J. Lee Annis notes in his book Big Jim Eastland13: The Godfather of Mississippi, a biography of segregationist Senator Jim Eastland (D-MS), “Eastland was particularly anxious to mentor young members. One favorite over the last term was Joseph Biden, who then was best known for having lost his wife and young daughter in an automobile accident.” Annis goes on to write Biden showed “considerable deference” to the racist senator, allying with him on numerous bills and seeking his mentorship. Biden confirmed the relationship himself, writing in his 2007 biography14, “I started by asking him questions. He was proud of his standing as the longest-serving senator and of his reputation as a keeper of the institutional flame. I think he was flattered by the deference I showed him, and his answers to my questions often surprised me.”
Biden also eulogized segregationist Strom Thurmond, and called the former Dixiecrat one of his “closest friends.” It was more than friendship. Nadine Cohodas notes in her book15, Strom Thurmond & the Politics of Southern Change, that: “Biden had developed a genuine fondness for Thurmond. The young Democrat appreciated Thurmond’s political skill — he realized he was sitting next to a living piece of history — and he respected the straight-up way they could deal with one another. When Biden became Judiciary’s senior Democrat, he had promised Thurmond he would never do anything to undercut him.
In June of 2019, Biden said, “The only thing I miss is my buddy Fritz Hollings, he was one of my mentors, and I’m sorry he’s not here.” Hollings had passed earlier in the year.
His mentor, Former Gorvernor and Senator Fritz Hollings (D-SC), was Senator for 40 years. On SCETV he was on Stateline with Charles Bierbauer; when asked about the Democratic Presidential primary in SC and Sen. Hollings said, “In New Hampshire you have to pay one of ’em to stand up on the stage with you, we have “em all over the place down here. We can deliver the black vote in SC.”
In the late 80’s and early 90’s, Biden had an obsession with the “Biden Bill” otherwise known as the 1994 Crime Bill, and was very passionate about his feelings towards black people on the floor of the Senate. He has repeatedly defended the bill that incarcerated a disproportionate number of black men for extended sentences for minor drug offenses. The effect of this bill was felt throughout the black community, as fathers were charged with petty crimes and absent from the homes, resulting in a higher chance of their children becoming criminals.
When running against Former President Barack Obama in 2007, before running with him as his Vice Presidential Nominee, Biden said about Obama in an interview with Jason Horowitz16, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” It is also completely untrue that he was the first black man running for president, unless he doesn’t consider men like the Reverend Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson (who actually ran against him in 1988) as “clean” or “articulate” enough to be considered.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, Joe Biden spoke with an Indian reporter, he proceeded to generalize about who is operating 7-11 convenience stores and Dunkin’ Donut shops in his home state of Delaware. Biden spoke ignorantly about 7-Eleven clerks saying, “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking,” showing that it isn’t just black people he has a lack of respect for.
In August of 2019, Former Vice President Joe Biden was addressing the Asian and Latino Coalition in Des Moines, Iowa, and actually said, “We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor you cannot do it, poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
This year, Biden has made plenty of remarks that were racially insensitive or just plain racist. In May of 2020, in possibly his most absurd comment involving race, he was in a disastrous interview with Charlamagne tha God on the Breakfast Club, and he said to the black host, “If you have trouble figuring out whether to vote for me or Trump, you ain’t black”
Apparently, in July of 2020, Biden made a comment about Asians all looking alike, and separating Asians from Americans, saying that Americans can’t tell the difference “between a South Korean and someone from Beijing,” as though there aren’t Asian Americans and implying that all Asians look the same.
Considering The President was forced to denounce David Duke repeatedly since he started his campaign in 2015, you’d think there would be more attention on the fact that in August of 2020, white supremacist Richard Spencer publicly endorsed Joe Biden for president17. It makes you wonder why the media isn’t asking Biden to disavow Spencer as they demanded President Trump disavow Duke. It isn’t something I have seen on any form of media until I actively searched for endorsements by white supremacists, showing the huge double standard of the radical Left.
Call to Action:
- Get/stay INFORMED AND EDUCATED
- Watch/read news from BOTH SIDES.
- PROTECT your family and fellow Patriots
- Engage in CIVIL DISCOURSE
- REFUTE misinformation
- DO NOT fall into the Third Party trap. Remember Ross Perot is how Clinton got elected.
This is a civil war between Communism and America. There is no more Democrat vs Republican right now. America needs to be united in the party of Patriots who believe in our constitution and the inherent right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
The radical Left has thrown their hail Mary, and we need to get our heads in the game and intercept that pass before it’s too late. Whether or not you believe Orange Man Bad, The Republicans who followed President Donald J Trump are the only hope for remaining a constitutional republic.
