Biden Doubles Down After Reminding Everyone Democrats Owned Slaves

Joe Biden has an old Democrat problem. After relentless flip-flopping; blowing in the wind on topics from abortion, to Iraq, to immigration, to integrating schools – Biden has finally chosen a hill to die on; bragging about working with segregationist Democrat Senators, James Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.), in order to “get things done.”

Eastland served as the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee for 21 years (1957 – 1978), where he would serve on the White Citizens Council working to oppose civil rights – while Biden was elected to the Senate in 1972.

Weirdly, Biden quipped on Wednesday “[Eastland] never called me ‘boy,’ he always called me ‘son.’” – without explaining why the elder Democrat would have called the young white Senator a pejorative term used against blacks.

Biden immediately received a heaping dose of condemnation from fellow Democrats, most prominently from Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), who is black – and competing with Biden for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

“You don’t joke about calling black men ‘boys.’,” Booker said in a Wednesday statement at the Juneteenth annual commemoration of slavery ending in the United States. “Vice President Biden’s relationships with proud segregationists are not the model for how we make America a safer and more inclusive place for black people, and for everyone,” Booker added.

“frankly, I’m disappointed that he hasn’t issued an immediate apology for the pain his words are dredging up for many Americans. He should,” Booker concluded.

On Thursday, Biden shot back at Booker: “Apologize for what?” adding (condescendingly) “He knows better … There’s not a racist bone in my body. I’ve been involved in civil rights my whole career. Period. Period. Period.”

Except of course when he opposed busing programs to integrate schools, calling Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy” in 2007, warning black voters that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains,” and of course – working closely with segregationist Democrats while praising one of the Senate Floor in 1988 (h/t Joel Pollak, Harris Alic).

“To think that I would be one day on the floor of the United States Senates, being paid such accolades by such a man of character and courage as John Stennis is beyond my wildest dreams,” Biden said of the longtime segregationist, adding “And I mean that sincerely.”

Then there’s Biden freestyling a noose-reference on the Senate floor while talking about the 1992 crime bill he wrote – and which would later become the 1994 Clinton-era bill widely blamed for contributing to the mass incarceration of black Americans for low-level drug crimes during the USA’s infamously failed war on drugs.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose wife is black, dinged Biden as well, saying “It’s 2019 & [Biden] s longing for the good old days of “civility” typified by James Eastland. Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal & that whites were entitled to ‘the pursuit of dead n***ers.’

Sen. Kamala Harris, who is also black and running against Biden, said that the former VP’s comments were “misinformed” and “wrong.”

If only Biden could pick Alexandria Ocasio-Concentration-Camp as a running mate – except she just threw shade at the career politician who would be 82 by the end of his first term.

  1. I do not like Bite Me but Spartacus is a complete FOOL!!! The people in CON-gress that NEVER compromise are DEMON RATS!!! There will ALWAYS be terrible people in politics but IF they are in office then they have to be DEALT WITH like it or NOT!!! The left love rewriting history and when the TRUTH about DEMON RATS come out they go nuts!!!! I do not understand how anybody could be a DEMON RAT and call themselves PROGRESSIVE!!!!! This is why the LEFTS take over of education has COST THIS COUNTRY FOR ALMOST 60 YEARS!!!! Trump 2020 IF you want EVERYBODY to have the OPPORTUNITY to achieve!!!!

    1. Yes they are regressive. They ban free speech on college campuses. Separate people into collective tribes. Keep black Americans down . Just look at Democratic rum cities in this country. Some where dims have been in power for 85+!years. Abortion and geniuses on demand. Open borders and sanctuary cities. These are definitely a regressive bunch and in fact are the racists they claim the right to be. Let’s get the facts out there. Biden actually was telling the truth when he said dems owned slaves. They owned all the slaves and today they still treat blacks as slaves. The inner cities have replaced the plantations. Just because there are no shackles doesn’t mean that a majority of blacks in the inner city aren’t beholden to those who constantly ask for their vote, then brush them aside. Trump has done more for blacks in this country than any thousand dems. What did the first black president do for the blacks other than pit them against whites. Nothing. The left is always trying to change history and deflect blame on others. Fact is their history cannot be deflected. They are the party of the KKK. They are the party of slavery. They are the party of eugenics. They are the party Robert Byrd , LBJ, Woodrow Wilson and FDR. All these presidents were not fond of black Americans to say the least. They are the party of resistance to the freeing of the slaves and then segregation . Yes the dems can continue to spread lies an pass blame but they can never ever say the republicans are the racists. Not one republican ever owned a slave. All were owned by dems. That’s fact and all the lefts lies can’t change that truth.

      1. Most of you are using information about the Democratic and Republican parties that is 150 YEARS out of date. Please try to catch up. I’m embarrassed f.or you

    2. Joe Schome left out the part that when Lincoln freed the slaves, the dems complained and didn’t want to give up their slaves.

    1. You are so wright about what you said,it was the SS Democrat Nazi Party in a country called the Confederate States Of America that owned slaves and till this day they still own them they should be paying for what there did to the black folks.

  2. Biden is a fool we all know that but the supposedly grown ups in Washington like Corey ( Spartacus) Booker and Camilla Harris are grown up’s trapped in a child’s mind mentality of mommy, mommy Johnny called me a name and i am so hurt by it . People disrespect other people , some whites hate other whites, some blacks hate other blacks , some whites hate blacks and some blacks hate whites it’s the nature of human beings and always has been and always will be but for Booker and Harris to be worried about someone calling a black man boy and just rehashing slavery over and over does not do justice to any race or promote equality in any way . We get it Booker and Harris you are still slaves but how about the successful black people that don’t want to be treated like slaves and victims and stand on their own merits

    1. The South with Jim Crow laws =was solidly Deocratic. But don’t bother trying to tell the college students, 20-somethings, and 30-something anything about history, which to them is boring and besides it contradicts their socialist manifesto. They’d much rather march around waving placards about LBGT and Chick-Fil-A and blaming every one of the world’s problems on George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump.

  3. Rewrite Hillary Clinton 2005, said the average democrat voter is just plain stupid, they are so easy to manipulate, that’s the easy part, What did Hillary have to hide? why didn’t she give all her emails to the FBI? she ,and Obama colluded with Russia, and got millions from the 20% uranium deal, she’s an alcoholic, drug addict, can’t walk, can’t talk, and pedophile Billy boy had to talk for her, we voted for a non politician that is not stealing, and wasting our tax money, you wanted them to be our president, what a stupid retarded idiot you are you have shit for brains

    The only thing that will bring us out of this depression is free energy, hydrogen from water, you can make all the hydrogen, as you drive from a tank of water, you know our space shuttles,are powered by hydrogen / oxygen made from water, and home power plants run from water. There’s a 200 mpg carburetor sitting in the patient office collecting dust, called the Porge vapor carburetor, liquid gas does not burn, only the vapor, look at the gas wast that our cars, and truck get 20, 30 ,40 mile to the gallon, boycott the auto company’s owned by the oil company’s don’t buy a new vehicle, and demand water to hydrogen kits to change all autos to water power with 2 switches to shut off the fuel pump, and fuel injectors, and fill your tank up with water, free energy

    1. You’re so misinformed, ignorant, and just plain wrong about Hillary and Obama that it is impossible for me to believe your “free power from water” theory. I think I’ll just stick with my electric car and high mpg gasoline vehicles when needed

  4. Biden is one of the biggest political whores there is! He will say anything to anybody at any time to try and gets what he wants, and sometimes contradicts himself in the same sentence if he thinks it serves his purpose

  5. The democrat party has to own up to the fact that they are the original party of the slave traders and today even though its less severe they keep the black man shackled to the notion that blacks cant get along without the assistance and meddling of the democrat party because the dems still think they are sophisticated enough to be out on their own without proper guidance from their superiors within the party.The blacks need to finally break the last chains of bondage and be free of the democrats once and forever! Keep in mind that MLK was a republican so he knew.

  6. The democrat party has always attempted and succeeded in keeping the poor impoverished with their give away programs in the form of “entitlements”. Threatening the inner city minority that if they voted Republican they would lose benefits. The democrats have never tried to educate and train the minorities as to allow them to get meaningful employment that would lead to advancement and escape from their enslavement. This is why I support Star Parker and her Pastor Network that work to enlighten the inner city minorities on the advantages offered them through education and training allowing an escape from perpetual poverty unlike the NAACP that fully supports the democrat plantation.

  7. Democrats want to give reparations to blacks to win thier votes and apologize for owning their great, great grandparents as slaves. What utter bullshit!
