DIXIECRAT JOE: George Wallace Once Gave Biden an Award and Praised Him As ‘Outstanding’

Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden has hammered President Donald Trump relentlessly for his alleged racism, commonly invoking Charlottesville and other tropes to attack the President and score points with the social justice warriors.

Biden even had the nerve to compare the President to George Wallace, the notoriously bigoted Democratic governor of Alabama who proclaimed “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever” in an infamous speech.

The problem with Biden’s line of attack against Trump is his own pandering past throughout his many decades in Washington D.C. There is a long-standing record of Biden playing footsie with racists over the years, which has been pointed out by the Trump War Room, a project of the Trump 2020 campaign.

Biden used to advertise his ties to George Wallace, promoting an award he received from the bigot who once praised Biden as a rising star in national politics:

Biden’s relationship with Wallace is far from an outlier. Biden had publicly curried favor with legislators known for their racist beliefs, even well into the 1980s.

“I came to the United States Senate. I was a 29-year-old fellow out of the Civil Rights movement, a public defender, and it turns out one of my closest friends ends up being Strom Thurmond, a man whose background and interests, at the time I came, were considerably different than mine,” Biden said in a 1988 speech at the Strom Thurmond Institute.

“If you had told me when I entered the United States Senate that one of the people that I’d have the closest relationship with in the Senate would be Strom Thurmond, I would have told you that you were crazy,” Biden said of the cozy relationship between Thurmond and himself.

Meanwhile, President Trump was receiving the Ellis Island award for his commitment to diversity alongside African-American pioneers like Rosa Parks and Mohammad Ali while Biden was chumming it up with Thurmond and playing up his Confederate bona fides.

Biden is dropping like a stone in the polls, and that will likely continue as his long-standing record of pandering to racists and bigots is uncovered further.
