“At critical junctures in history, they provide a choice. Would you rather be on Dr. King’s or George Wallace’s side? Do you want to be on John Lewis’ or Bull Connor’s side? Do you wish to be on Abraham Lincoln’s or Jefferson Davis’ side?” Biden stated recently.
He was talking about whether or not to end the Senate filibuster so Democrats can pass a law that they say will fix election policies and disenfranchise Lil Nas X.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell scolded the president in return, “How profoundly unpresidential. I’ve known, liked, and personally respected Joe Biden for many years. I did not recognize the man at the podium yesterday.”
Neither did I.
The man bravely stood against bussing to integrate schools, as Kamala Harris was so kind as to point out on the debate stage in 2019. That’s the good old Biden I know, the one that would have been on Wallace’s side, probably. He also worked tirelessly to pass the crime bill he sponsored to lock up Anthony Swatzie. That’s my friend from Delaware, probably Connor.
And finally, Mr. Biden had probably pooped his pants harder since assuming the high office than the Confederate Army did when General Grant sent back a note that said: “No terms can be accepted other than unconditional and instant capitulation. I recommend that we begin working on your projects right now.” So probably Davis.
Marisa Schultz’s note about the Dems’ two election bills at Fox News reports: “The Freedom to Vote Act is authored by Sen. Amy Klobuchar, (D-Minn.,) and is co-sponsored by all 50 members of the Senate Democratic Caucus, including Sen. Joe Manchin, (D-W.Va.,) and Kyrsten Sinema, (D-Ariz.) No Republicans have signed on, as they’ve dubbed it a far-left attempt to take over state elections.”
What is this? If it passes a partisan outcome on election days, both sides seem to agree. If I were a GOP senator, I would be doing the same thing.
I don’t care if Biden starts hugging and petting an effigy of Martin Luther King Jr., and telling everybody that if we keep the filibuster, that every speech I make from then one might as well be me calling MLK the N-word to his face repeatedly for the duration of the filibuster as the filibuster I’d keep the cotton-picking filibuster if I were a Republican.
And then start strategizing yesterday about how to appeal to young people and racial minorities, because there will be millions more voting like in 2020 forever if Democrats get their way, and they are going to keep on bringing it, and they already outnumber you right now.
If only a senator went to speak to young African American students at an HBCU in 2013 and talk about federal justice policy in the United States, that probably even some somewhat racist, anti-semites would vote for. That’s a broad appeal, baby. At least someone in the senate is bussing some ideas between schools. He would have been on the side of MLK, Lewis, and Lincoln.
