Joe Biden is dealing with quite a few scandals. He is trying to sweep under the rug the fact he illegally held onto classified documents, storing them in his office, his private library, and his garage. Add to that the many scandals connected with his son, scandals Republicans are about to investigate.
All this as rumors grow that he is planning to officially announce his re-election plans. But Biden has a bigger problem, one that could sink his campaign before it starts. He is losing support among black voters, who have long stayed loyal to Democrats. So, the ailing Democrat appeared at a black church over MLK Day weekend and gave a speech.
It was a disaster.
On Sunday, Joe Biden gave a speech at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr where he repeated false claims about his supposed involvement in the civil rights movement and protesting apartheid in South Africa.
“I’ve two political heroes. My entire life. When I started off as a 22-year-old on the east side of the civil rights movement,” Biden said. “I got elected to the United States Senate when I was 29 and wasn’t old enough to take office.” […]
Biden has made several references to being involved in the civil rights movement, a claim CNN reports is false. In 2021, he specifically said at a press conference that he was “arrested” at a civil rights event in his youth, but there is no evidence of any such occurrence. [Source: The Post Millennial]
That was only the start of Biden’s problems. He claimed, without proof, that he would attend a black church “every morning” as a child. Nobody can confirm this whopper. To make matters worse, he said he was a Civil Rights activist. Yet even he said, in the past, that he never supported the movement.
This is not only embarrassing for Joe, but insulting to all black Americans. Joe thinks he can rewrite history, taking credit for the hard work and sacrifices of other men. Biden thinks he can ride the coattails of Martin Luther King, Jr, even though, during that time, Biden was doing nothing.
Yet he can say this and get away with it, because he is a Democrat. The left will just assume it is true, because he is on “their side.” But someone like Donald Trump can literally win awards for helping the black community and get called racist, because he’s a Republican.
But it doesn’t seem as if Biden did himself any favors. The old man could even pronounce the name of Ketanji Jackson, the black woman he appointed as Supreme Court Justice. If anyone buys this song and dance, they really are out of their minds.
Biden has never been an ally of black Americans. And he never will be.
