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.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
