Democrats have worn out their phony racist finger-pointing at conservatives so much so that no one pays it any mind anymore. But the so-called “diversity party” has a major identity problem because now two of its leading presidential hopefuls are actually bigots.
The question Americans — and even Democrats — will have to answer as the primary process evolves, is whether frontrunners Sleazy Joe Biden or former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the bigger racists.
Biden enjoyed a commanding lead in the early polls, cloaked under the veil that he was the first African-American president’s number two. Proving the left cares little about the meaning of words such as “bigot,” racist,” or “sexual misconduct,” Biden’s campaign didn’t take on much water when he defended his segregationists policies and close relationships with Klan members.
“I’ve been around so long, I worked with James Eastland,” Biden reportedly said at a Sen. Doug Jones campaign gathering. “Even in the days when I got there, the Democratic Party still had seven or eight old-fashioned Democratic segregationists. You’d get up, and you’d argue like the devil with them. Then you’d go down and have lunch or dinner together. The political system worked. We were divided on issues, but the political system worked.”
Before Eastland died in 1986, he was quoted on the record saying that “black people were an inferior race.” Eastland also reportedly agreed to stump for Biden’s senate campaign.
Eastland was far from the only racist that Biden openly embraced and praised. South Carolina Gov. Strom Thurman, Sen. Jesse Helms, and confirmed Ku Klux Klan leader Sen. Robert Byrd were all close friends of Biden, who himself fought against desegregation. Not only was Biden comfortably seated at the table of the most notorious bigots of the era, but he was also instrumental in the zero-tolerance laws that put a disproportionate number of African-Americans in prison for decades.
Democrat voters are also loving candidate Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire turned politician who leaped into the top contender mix by spending upwards of $338 million on political ads. His legacy as a former New York mayor’s records is filthy rotten to the core, in terms of racism, and misogyny.
“Ninety-five percent of murders — murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops,” Bloomberg reportedly said about his stop and frisk policy. “They are male, minorities, 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city. And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”
Bloomberg’s $338 million worth tv, radio and digital media ads bought his way into last night’s Democrat national debates. What’s now a source of comic relief is that suddenly the other frontrunner Sen. Bernie Sanders is growing a conscience. The Vermont socialists recently blasted Bloomberg — now that he’s a threat in the polls — over his long-standing policies of unfairly targeting African-Americans.
“Today we say to Mayor Bloomberg: we are a democracy, not an oligarchy, you’re not gonna buy this election,” Sanders told a crowd at a campaign gathering. He went on to state that Bloomberg enacted “racist policies like stop and frisk.”
In recent weeks, Bloomberg has pulled into a lead in some Democrat primary polls and has been ranked as high as third in the national generic poll. Of course, that poll listed a socialist, followed by two bigots, followed by a candidate who lied about being a Cherokee Indian as the Democratic party’s standard-bearers. You can’t make this stuff up!
