FLASHBACK: Biden Subjected Anita Hill to ‘Public Humiliation and Abuse’ According to Politico

Joe Biden’s history of treating women poorly and palling around with segregationists has always been a scar on his record.

Presidential hopeful and Democratic Party primary leader Joseph R. Biden Jr. allegedly subjected Anita Hill, a black woman, to “public humiliation and abuse” when she accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation process in the early 1990’s.

According to a 2015 POLITICO piece, Biden’s critics still aren’t over his treatment of Hill, and despite a pro-female his legislative record, “that hasn’t erased the memories of how Biden presided over those hearings as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, blamed for doing little to stop the attacks on Hill and opting not to call three other witnesses who would have echoed Hill’s charges of sexual harassment.”

Adding to record, Biden has faced groping allegations from several women this year, stemming from his earlier days in political office.

“Ever since [the Thomas confirmation hearings], for many women and blacks, Hill’s name conjures an image of a black woman struggling under attack by a dozen powerful white men asking aggressive questions and questioning her character,” POLITICO said, later adding that his actions were “seen as Biden’s subjecting an African-American woman to public humiliation and abuse could erode his support among women and blacks.”

Biden has faced more trouble this week over comments he made praising segregationist Senators with whom he worked earlier in his political career, for which he was bashed by presidential candidates Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.)

Big League Politics reported:

As the 2020 Democratic Party primary heats up, one candidate took a swipe at former vice president Joe Biden, currently the party’s leading candidate.

“I have, um, a great deal of respect, uh for vice president Biden,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) said to a gaggle of reporters. “He’s done very good work and he’s served our country in a very noble way. But to coddle the reputation of segregationists – of people who, if they had their way I would literally not be standing here as a member of the United States Senate – is, uh, it’s misinformed and it’s wrong.”

Earlier Wednesday, Biden praised late Sens. James Eastland (D-Miss.) and Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.), known as two of the Senate’s most ardent segregationists, with whom Biden worked early in his political career.

“Let’s be very clear,” Harris continued. “The Senators that [Biden] is speaking of with such adoration are individuals who made and built their reputations on segregation.”
