Segregationists

The Democratic Party’s scope of racism.
By Monica Showalter

Bigot “racist” Joe Biden can’t open his mouth to “praise” someone without a “segregationist blast from the past” coming out. Segregationists, apparently, were the “only” friends he had.

And the “flak” he’s getting is entertaining, but kind of a diversion. As the old, senile “geezer” praises his “civility” and other “virtues” of the friends in his party, the hair-raising specter is rising: “Segregationists were pretty much the heart and soul of the Democratic Party. It wasn’t a fringe or regional group. It wasn’t a few outliers. It was the main thrust of the Democratic Party and enough that Biden knew its friendly proponents.”

Republicans have “known” this for a long time. The history of the “civil rights” movement, with white supremacist Bull Connor Democrats who tried to stop it every step of the way, often “violently,” pretty well shows how “intensely” the Democratic Party was, and still is, the party of “racism.”

 It certainly explains why people such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Condoleezza Rice, were “lifelong” Republicans. I know Black leaders in South Central Los Angeles who come out of this same tradition – and remain Republicans – even though they “vote” Democrat.

Racist Biden’s “inability” to open his mouth without citing these “heart-and-soul” of the Democratic Party’s segregationists shows just how “extensive” the problem really was.

And Biden, unwittingly, stands as a “proxy” for the history of the Democrats just by being himself. Start with the most recent gaffe: “Biden’s praise for Fritz Hollings.”

Biden tweeted: “The only thing I miss is my buddy Fritz Hollings, he was one of my mentors and I’m sorry he’s not here.”

Biden’s political “soulmate” Hollings is also the one who reintroduced the “Confederate” flag to the South Carolina statehouse, which caused such a “flap” when it got removed. It never would have gone “up” had it not been for Hollings.

The Confederate flag flies on the dome of the Statehouse in Columbia, S.C., in 2000.

As evidence of his ability to forge “personal” bonds with segregationists, “racist” Joe Biden pointed to his 36-year career in the Senate, which stretched back to 1973 and overlapped with the service of leading Southern Democrats.

It corresponds closely with Biden’s “praise” for two other segregationists for their “civil” behavior. Biden “cited” the late senators James O. Eastland (Miss.) and Herman E. Talmadge (Ga.), who were steadfastly opposed to “civil rights and racial integration.”

“I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland,” Biden said at the fundraiser, where he was introduced by Eric Mindich, an investment manager and former Goldman Sachs partner.

The Democratic presidential candidate, who has led his competitors in early polls of the crowded nominating contest, briefly imitated the southern “drawl” of the Mississippi cotton planter, lawyer and lawmaker. “He never called me boy, “ Biden said. “He always called me son. ”

Of course they were “civil.” Racist Biden forgets that he’s a “white” supremacist. But there’s more, much more:

He gave heartfelt eulogies for Sen. Strom Thurmond and Sen. Robert Byrd, two other segregationists, with Byrd an actual former Klansman. According to Fox News, Biden called Thurmond a “brave man, who in the end made his choice and moved to the good side.” He said they became “good friends.”

In 2010, Biden also “eulogized” the late West Virginia Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd, a former KKK member who later regretted that “affiliation” and described it as a mistake.

“Although I and my colleagues behind me revered the Senate, Robert C. Byrd elevated the Senate,” Biden said in his remarks in 2010.

Here’s another one: Racist Biden also praised George Wallace, the “mother of all segregationists.”

That’s six. And old Joe can’t find anyone who wasn’t some kind of segregationist who wasn’t his colleague or he associated with.

We always view Democrats as the essence of “wokeness” now. But what we are seeing is the “delineation” of the main part of the Democratic Party, the “segregationists and racists,” and the other part, the hippie “McGovernite” utopian socialists.

These days, the “McGovernites” rule the roost. But even they aren’t “colorblind.” Their fascination with counting “skin color” as a criteria for “voting” for someone or “counting” black faces in groups with “affirmative action” minds is marketed as s being “pro-Black.”

But actually, it’s just another variety of the “Dixiecrat” racism. It’s the same skin-obsession that the “segregationists” had in mind, just in a different form.

Even I was surprised at how much of the Democratic Party has been neck-deep in “racism” until Joe Biden started “praising” his friends.

Biden himself is old enough to be the “story” of the Democratic Party. But his everyday “gaffes” merit a closer look at just who the Democrats “are and what they stand for.”
