Political Hack Joe Wilson Attacked Joe Biden for Years and is Now Endorsing Him for President

Published

Political strategist Rick Wilson has made a name for himself as one of the most virulent Never Trumpers in the Trump era.

His anti-Trump Super PAC, the Lincoln Project, recently endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president.

Interestingly enough, the Daily Caller has pointed out that Wilson has a long track record of attacking Biden as “creepy” and calling him a “jackass” and a “moron.”

The Lincoln Project, which is led by Wilson and other milquetoast Republicans including George Conway, endorsed Biden on April 8, 2020.

“As America contends with unprecedented loss, we need a leader who can steady our ship of state, bind up our common wounds, and lead us into our next national chapter. Joe Biden has the humanity, empathy and steadiness we need in a national leader,” co-founder Reed Galen said while rolling out the endorsement.

However, such glowing praise of Biden is a complete break from Wilson’s past comments about the former Vice President.

Wilson characterized Biden as “America’s most creepy” in a  tweet back in April 2015.

In April 2013, Wilson tweeted: “There are actually people in America who believe that Joe Biden could be President. Really. Not kidding.”

“No, let me remind you again, Washington press…Joe Biden is a moron. A charming, affable moron, but a moron by any standard,” Wilson commented in September 2013.

“When someone says ‘Joe Biden is Joe Biden’ they mean ‘Joe Biden is unhinged,’” Wilson declared in a tweet from September 2012.

He also declared that Biden is “America’s greatest living national jackass” in a tweet from August 2011.

Although Wilson’s group praised Biden for his leadership, Wilson proclaimed in an October 2009 tweet that Biden has “been wrong on almost EVERY foreign policy issue for DECADES.”

Wilson downplayed his past Biden tweets criticizing Biden when they started re-surfacing on the night of April 9 on Twitter, writing: “There’s a difference between us; you think we’re still in 2012, and I know that Donald Trump is a proximate danger to America right this minute.”

Wilson is an establishment mainstay of the highest order.

He has even called for throwing mandatory vaccination skeptics into camps.

Wilson should receive derision and be totally ostracized from polite society for his pro-establishment takes and petty behavior.

Mara Elvira Salazar is No Friend of America First Nationalism

Republican leaders would be wise to ignore all of her political advice.

If there’s one Republican leader that young activists should never listen to, it’s Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar. 

Salazar, who is a Cuban American, has been an outspoken advocate of loosening U.S. immigration laws. In fact, she even confronted known immigration hawk and key Trump adviser Stephen Miller at a Republican Study Committee weekly lunch on February 24, 2021. She specifically criticized Trump’s immigration message and demanded that the GOP be more inclusive in its outreach.

“I told him [Miller] that the GOP needs to attract the browns,” stated Salazar. “We, for the last 30 years since Ronald Reagan, have not sent the right message to the browns,” she continued. “Reagan was the last guy who gave a path to citizenship to 3 million people … 35 years ago. It’s time for us to do the same thing that Reagan did.”

Salazar doubled down on her pro-immigration message when she went on Larry Kudlow’s show on March 2 and declared that former President Donald Trump would have done better with Hispanics by advocating for looser immigration. Journalist Ryan Girdusky noted how some of Trump’s advisers were already pushing for amnesty lite policies:

Girdusky added that Salazar was rather unhinged in her criticism of Miller’s vision for the GOP:

Salazar made a lot of noise about the Hispanic vote, despite ignoring how Trump improved his Hispanic numbers between 2016 and his re-election bid in 2020 from 28% to 32%. And he did so without much Hispandering or campaigning on passing amnesty. 

The unsavory fact that the GOP consultant class and the likes of Salazar refuse to acknowledge is that the Black Lives Matter unrest alone likely pushed significant segments of the Hispanic population into the Democrats’ arms. BLM radicalism alienated Americans of all backgrounds., but Hispanics were not having any of this kind of ruckus. Even Hispanic Democrats, of all groups, largely supported strong military action during the riots.

In reality, Hispanic support for Trump is largely based on his bluster and political bluntness, which many minority groups find comfort in. 

However, Republicans like Salazar gets it all wrong by thinking that expanding immigration both legal and illegal is a key to the Republican Party success. The Republican Party will have to concede that they can make gains with Hispanics at the margins but they cannot expect to win the majority of the Hispanic vote due to Hispanics’ propensity to support many causes ranging from gun control to more government involvement in healthcare. Data from the Pew Research Center demonstrates these beliefs among Hispanics. Nevertheless, there are some avenues for outreach with this demographic  but they must be done right. 

The key for Republican success is the white working class voters, which played a crucial role in putting Trump over the top in the Midwest back in 2016. These voters are not the most reliable in terms of turnout, but they comprise a vast segment of the American electorate. Any candidate who can activate them could potentially build a hegemonic electoral coalition for years to come. The goal for a sane Republican campaign is to maximize turnout and support among the WWC. 

Such inroads with WWC voters are more important than meeting a diversity quota the likes of Salazar and naive Republican strategists would like the party to pursue. Any nationalist campaign worth its salt would be promoting the following: Infrastructure projects targeting the Midwest, the restriction of both illegal and legal immigration, and re-shoring programs to bring jobs back. 

On the other hand, following Salazar’s program is the way that the GOP will become irrelevant and alienate many WWC voters who are already on the fence with regards to the Republican Party. These voters are not going to gravitate towards Republicans just because of the “R” next to their name. They still must be catered to and pushing for amnesty is one way to turn working class voters off.

Under Salazar’s watch, the GOP will simply be going back to the politically correct ways of the Bush administration. To tap into the sleeping giants that is the WWC, Republican leaders should ignore everything Salazar has to say and get fully behind nationalist policies such as immigration restriction, infrastructure development, and re-shoring.
