Recently, Creepy Joe Biden has been comparing President Trump to George Wallace. I find that odd, because Biden hates President Trump, probably because he has shown what America can do after eight disastrous years of Obama/Biden. But the reason I find it strange is that at the height of Wallace’s bigotry, Biden was one of his biggest fans and he praised him on many occasions. Perhaps that’s it. President Trump is not a racist, and that goes against everything Biden believes in. Biden was against busing, and he once said that you were not allowed in a 7-Eleven unless you had at least a slight Indian accent. And let’s not forget his most recent statement that poor kids are as smart as white kids. Senator Robert Byrd would be so proud of him. Biden provided a eulogy to Byrd (the Grand Kleagle of the KKK) at his funeral.
“I think the Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace — someone who’s not afraid to stand up and offend people, someone who wouldn’t pander but would say what the American people know in their gut is right,” Biden told the Philadelphia Inquirer in 1975 when discussing why liberals should not “apologize for locking up criminals.”
At the time, Biden was a young-first term senator from Delaware who was developing a reputation for bucking his party, most notedly on the contentious issue of busing to desegregate public schools. Notwithstanding the fact that racial norms were more antiquated then they are today, Biden’s comments, nonetheless, were viewed as controversial.
Wallace, who was governor of Alabama in the mid-1960s and then again throughout most of the 1970s, stood out in the national psyche for his stringent opposition to integration, even going as far to declare “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever” in his 1963 inaugural address. The image was reinforced only months later when Wallace faced down federal law enforcement officers at the University of Alabama while attempting to block integration efforts by then-President John F. Kennedy.
