Biden’s ‘Jim Crow’ Remarks Further Taint His Campaign

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden slammed President Trump during remarks in South Carolina on Saturday night, referring to the president as a “clown” who is allowing “Jim Crow” racism to return to the United States.

“There are so many nicknames that I’m inclined to give this guy,” the 2020 Democratic presidential frontrunner said. “We could just start with clown.”

“When he says these ridiculous things he says, I mean this, I put my hand up and say, ‘everybody knows who you are ‘because they do know,” Biden declared in a room of about three dozen supporters.

He blasted the president after he was asked by one of his supporters whether he would return Trump’s insults. Biden claimed the president tries to deter attention away from the issues by mocking his political rivals.

“On every single issue and on every demeaning thing he says about other people, I have no problem responding directly,” he said. “What I’m not going to do is get into what he wants me to do. He wants this to be mud wrestling match.”

The former vice president took a page from Trump’s playbook, who during his 2016 presidential run famously branded his opponents with nicknames like “Low Energy” Jeb Bush, “Lyin” Ted Cruz and “Crooked” Hillary Clinton. Trump began referring to Biden as “Sleepy Joe,” after he launched his bid in late April.

Trump’s behavior on social media – his attacks on the media’s reporting of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election meddling and accusations of the media being an arm of the Democratic Party are worrying fellow world leaders, Biden argued.

“At least 14 world leaders” have called him during Trump’s tenure to express dismay, Biden said, while British Prime Minister Theresa May asked him for reassurance that the U.S. and the United Kingdom “still have a special relationship.”

He then claimed Trump “is about to squander alliances” built over generations, noting that he has “spent my entire adult life” in global relations as a senator for 36 years and then as President Barack Obama’s vice president for eight years.

Earlier Saturday, Biden kicked off a rally accusing Trump and the GOP of “sneaking back in” Jim Crow by advocating for voter identifications laws. Biden likened measures requiring minorities to show ID to vote to racial segregation and the era before the civil rights movement.

“Folks, last year, 24 states introduced or enacted at least 70 bills to curtail the right the vote. And guess what, mostly directed at ‘people of color.’ You see it. We have Jim Crow sneaking back in. No, I mean it.” he said. “You know what happens when you have an equal right to vote? They lose.”

Biden is riding high on the Democratic presidential primary polls in the first few days following his formal declaration of candidacy.

Despite backlash for growing allegations of inappropriately touching women, Barack Obama’s former number two, is a clear number one in the Democratic presidential field and rising, holding a 30 point leader over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll survey. Forty-four percent of Democratic voters said they are most likely to vote for Biden in the 2020 primaries. Socialist Sanders comes in second place at 14 percent.

Ilhan Omar Says She Believes Biden Committed Sexual Assault, But Will Vote For Him Anyway

Published

on

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has stated publicly that she believes Tara Reade, a former staffer for presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden who has alleged he sexually assaulted her, but will vote for Biden despite the fact that she thinks he is a predator.

“Believing survivors is consistent with my values. Yes, I endorsed against Biden and I didn’t pick him as our nominee. With that said, in this interview I did on May 6th, we talked about that and quotes aren’t always in context. I will vote for him and help him defeat Trump,” Omar wrote in a tweet attempting to express solidarity for Reade while shilling for Biden.

“We can’t fend off perceived attacks with attacks on others. This is the most important election cycle of our lifetimes and we aren’t going to have a chance if we don’t spend our energy in mobilizing and building enthusiasm against Trump. That’s the goal we should all be united on,” Omar wrote in a subsequent Twitter post.

She also talked about her stance in favor of voting for a man she believes is a sexual predator during an interview with The Sunday Times.

“There’s a lot of unsavory stuff. It is troubling, I do believe Tara Reade, I believe it’s important for us to give space for women to come forward and share their stories. It takes years and years for sexual assault survivors to come forward. Justice can be delayed but it should never be denied,” Omar said.

“If considerations [over the candidate] were something I had influence over, just candidly here, we’d probably have a different candidate,” she added – making it clear that Biden is not a candidate she finds particularly desirable.

Fellow “Squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) expressed a similar opinion that she would vote for a man she believes committed sexual assault because of her hatred for Trump.

“I reject the false choice that my party and our nominee can’t address the allegations at hand and defeat the occupant of the White House,” Pressley wrote.

Reade has come forward in recent weeks to accuse Biden of victimizing her in 1993 when he was a Senator and she worked under him:

Tara Reade, a former staffer for Joe Biden while he was serving in the Senate, filed a criminal complaint in Washington D.C. against her former boss on Saturday alleging he sexually assaulted her in 1993.

Reade attests that Biden “assaulted her in a Senate corridor, shoving his hand under her skirt and penetrating her with his fingers.” Business Insider has reported that the “statute of limitations for the alleged assault has passed,” but this troublesome news is not expected to help Biden’s presidential chances.

Reade spoke her truth to writer Katie Halper when she appeared on her podcast last month. Reade claims that she has been trying to get justice for years but her story has mostly fallen on deaf ears due to Biden being protected.

“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing,” Reade said to Halper. “There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall. His hands were on me and underneath my clothes. And then, he went, he went down my skirt and then up inside it, and he penetrated me with his fingers…and um…He was kissing me at the same time and he was saying something to me.”

“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said,” she continued. “And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this.”

Reade’s allegations are yet to be proven by hard evidence, but this situation has certainly exposed the incredible hypocrisy of Democrats when it comes to the #MeToo movement and sexual assault claims.
