Biden Goes All-In On The Race Issue

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org,

Those who believed America’s racial divide would begin to close with the civil rights acts of the 1960s and the election of a black president in this century appear to have been overly optimistic.

The race divide seems deeper and wider than at any time in our lifetimes. Most of the aspiring leaders of the Democratic Party have apparently concluded that branding the president a “racist” and “white supremacist” is the strategy to pursue to win the nomination and the White House.

Here is Joe Biden, speaking in Iowa as President Donald Trump was visiting the wounded communities of Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas:

This president has fanned the flames of white supremacy in this nation. … The energetic embrace of this president by the darkest hearts and the most hate-filled minds in this country says it all.

“We have a problem with this rising tide of … white supremacy in America. And we have a president who encourages and emboldens it.”

What had Trump done to invite such a charge?

The key piece of evidence linking Trump to the mass murderer of El Paso, is a single phrase out of a 2,000-word screed posted on social media, allegedly by the gunman minutes before carrying out his atrocity.

Patrick Crusius said he was striking this blow against the “Hispanic invasion of Texas.” And Donald Trump has often used that term, invasion, to describe the crisis on the border.

Yet the word “invasion” to label what is happening on America’s Southern border long predated Trump, and, moreover, is both an accurate and valid description.

Consider. There are, by most estimates, at least 11 million migrants in the United States illegally, the equivalent of the entire population of Cuba. Lately, migrants have been crossing the Mexican border at a rate of 100,000 a month. If one had to choose a word to describe graphically what is going on, would it not be invasion?

What a panicked establishment, and its stable of candidates, is doing is transparent. By declaring “invasion” — a legitimate description of what is transpiring on the Southern border — to be inherently racist, it is conceding the word has power and is an effective weapon in the political arsenal of those the establishment seeks to censor, stigmatize and silence.

Trump’s adversaries want to stop him from using his most powerful and compelling arguments and images, the ones that enabled him to win the presidency and oust them from power. The left is now using “white supremacy” as its new hate term, because “racist” has all but lost its sting from overuse.

But Biden’s raising of the race issue is going to come back and bite him.

Said Joe in Iowa:

“Our president has more in common with George Wallace than George Washington.”

Yet, that greatest of the Founding Fathers, George Washington, whom Biden invoked as his beau ideal of a leader, was a slave owner and demonstrably more of a white supremacist than Trump.

And Biden is likely to be reminded of this by Sen. Cory Booker, his rival for the crucial black vote in the primaries, who, as Joe was speaking in Iowa, was at Emanuel AME Zion church in Charleston, South Carolina, tearing into the founding generation of Washington, Jefferson and Madison:

“Bigotry was written into our founding documents,” said Booker.

“White supremacy has always been a problem in our American story.”

“Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia, xenophobia, misogyny — these tactics aren’t a new perversion,” Booker went on.

“They’ve been ingrained in our politics since our foundation.”

Are American voters supposed to respond warmly to this?

Biden’s words in Iowa – “We have a president who has aligned himself with the darkest forces in this nation” – appear to be a lift from Robert Kennedy’s attack on LBJ when Bobby announced for president just days after Lyndon Johnson was badly wounded in the 1968 New Hampshire primary.

Said Bobby of the father of the Civil Right Act of 1964:

“Our national leadership is calling upon the darker impulses of the American spirit.”

LBJ and his associates, Bobby went on, “have removed themselves from the American tradition, from the enduring and generous impulses that are the soul of this nation.”

“We are fighting for the soul of America,” echoed Biden in Iowa.

As for Wallace, whom Biden disparages, he was a segregationist, much like Biden’s patron, Sen. Jim Eastland of Mississippi, who called Joe “son,” and Strom Thurmond, whom Biden eulogized and who conducted the longest filibuster in history — against the 1957 Civil Rights Act.

In George Wallace’s salad days, Joe sang a different tune, telling the Philadelphia Inquirer on Oct. 12, 1975:

“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.”

Perhaps Joe can become such a fearless leader in 2020.

  1. We the true people of the USA deserve NON-career politicians, that can pass an IQ test and who follow our Constitution. Their words are just to insight war to overthrow our form of government. Lately it seems the two party system is the Republicans and the Communist party. The Democrats have the correct symbol of the JACK-ASS.

  2. lets not forget, folks! the kkk is the military arm of the democrat party. republicans weren’t the slave owners. it was the democrats. shame on you, cory booker. the educated know who and what you are.

  3. All this racist stuff started with OBAMA. He backed Black Lives Matter ( hate group)they walked down streets of New York, blocking traffic all over, yelling “what do we want, kill the cops. When do we want it, Now”. Then he invited them to the White House. Obama , backed by black caucus, George Soros, with his also communist rule, and others started this big time. They just built on it, to what we have now. The “HATE” coming from the DEMOCRATICS (communists) is to cause violence & decision among the people of our country. They don’t do Peaceful Protests. The hurt, kill, provoke, spur all kind of danger to Republicans ( or people who do not think like they want them to , their propaganda,) They say they want everyone to calm down. Ha! Ha! While they are yelling, stab people in Senate, pitch fork others, yell profanity at night in suposidly “peaceful protest “. Biden is spueing all kinds of hate and talks with so much anger, he angers them. He is a very, very dangerous man. Plus , something is definitely wrong with him. He stuffers, slurs his speech & rants. How could he make any kind of decisions for this country. As a matter of fact, how can any of the democrats running for president. Some have already sworn to uphold the constitution of the USA. And they DO NOT. And people who come here LEGALLY are welcome. We have laws that PROTECT the sovereignty of the country, and our people who live in this country. Do it the right way. & we should not give them a thing when they do come illegally. No one gave our families anything, when they came legally. They worked right away!!!! Save America!! Don’t vote these evil Haters as leaders of our country. They will take us down. Look at the job they have done already. STOP the MADNESS!!!

  4. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these deep state treasonous Godless NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬!

  5. I get quite a kick out of white Sycophants like Biden, i.e., filthy, stinking dirty old white flip/flopping ass kisser’s like Crazy Old Uncle Joey the homosexual child molester! My sources claim that Crazy Uncle Joey molested both of his son’s and continues to molest his youngest son who is still alive. Recently it has been reported that Uncle Joey just started molesting his two (2) grandson’s too; the rat bastard! In fact, I just read in the fake news that Crazy Uncle Joey just got arrested for diddling both his grandsons, the cops were called, and walked in on him in a full-on diddling exercise, of both grandsons, can you even imagine? Hey, it’s ok, because according to Bubba, Rasmus and Tyrone, who remain locked up in State Prison, for armed robbery and murdering several white men, they can’t wait until Uncle Joey turns up in Prison, because they claim they know ZACKELY how to deal with him! Bubba, told my sources yesterday evening, they will start by pimping Joey up and down cell block 14, once he is broken-in to his new lifestyle, and after they’ve renamed him “Josiane” they’ll move him/her around to Cell Block 15, 16 & 17. Bubba quoted the fee they intend to charge for, we’ll just say, ‘renting out’ Crazy Aunt Josiane ass, it is going to be 1 pack of squares per poke, ½ pack per blowee, and ¾ pack for up the old pooper, and if you ask me, that ain’t half-bad of a price! Hahahahaha Of course Crazy Aunt Josiane ain’t getting any of the take for at least the first 5 years, after that he/she may be all worn out, but if he/she is still pumping iron, they ‘may’ consider cutting him/her in for at least ½ cigarette minimum per poke; Hey that’s up to Bubba, know what I mean Vern?

  6. Dems speak of Race Issues??? Worry about Dem’s VIOLENT new movie “The Hunt”!!!
    BOYCOTT UNIVERSAL, for making such a horror movie, depicting Deplorables being hunted by the MENTALLY ILL DEMOCRATS & THEIR CELEB COUNTERPARTS……..BOYCOTT ALL THE ACTORS IN THE MOVIE ……. TIME TO PUT “THEM” OUT OF BUSINESS.
    And, Universal, Celebs & Dems, stupidly don’t think Deplorables will fight back?????
    Dems & their HATEFUL rhetoric are the cause for ALL the violence in America today!

  7. How do you defend yourself when someone calls you a racist? Jesse Jackson was extorting companies for millions of dollars. Jackson would accuse companies of being racist then these same companies would in turn pay him money to clear themselves of Jackson’s charge. The book “Shakedown” was written to expose Jesse Jackson’s con. Now, democrat communists are using this same con. False charges of racism from the rat infested democrat party. DON’T FALL FOR IT! Don’t even bother to respond! Democrats offer nothing but hate and division. Juvenile behavior defines the democrat party!
