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

Biden’s attempt to remake himself as a progressive champion is not going particularly well.

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.

Obama Reportedly Said Pete Buttigieg Too ‘Gay’ and ‘Short’ to be President

Tell it like it is, Barack!

Former president Barack Hussein Obama reportedly said that former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was too “gay” and too “short” to be a serious presidential contender during the midst of the 2020 presidential race.

Buttigieg, who ran for president in 2020 and surprisingly won the Iowa caucus, is now the Transportation Secretary under President-imposed Joe Biden. He is considered a rising star in the Democrat Party due to his homosexual lifestyle, which includes being gay married to a husband, but Obama is apparently a doubter.

Obama reportedly made his remarks while addressing a group of black Democrat donors in Oct. 2019 as he was attempting to exert his influence over the process. The revelation comes from a new book authored by The Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen titled, Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency.

At the time, Obama was apparently supporting Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for president. The excerpt from the book, which includes various pot shots made by Obama toward Buttigieg, reads as follows:

When he was asked to return to the original question on his advice, Obama said he liked Buttigieg, a rising talent who’d worked on his own campaign. But despite his affinity for the South Bend mayor, he rattled off a list of reasons why Buttigieg couldn’t win. 

“He’s thirty- eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself — ” big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter. 

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

It goes without saying that any conservative who made similar remarks would be pilloried by the fake news media. Obama will get a pass, although the comments may make the former president’s relationship with the former mayor strained as Buttigieg climbs up the political ladder undeservedly due solely to identity politics.
