Biden’s ‘voting rights’ speech reeks of Atlanta

Vulgar. Repugnant. Repugnant.

These are three of the most charitable adjectives that describe President Joe Biden’s abysmal speech on Tuesday.

MEDIA SCOLD BIDEN FOR REMARK ON ‘RACE-BAITING’ VOTING LAWS DURING ‘HYPOCRITICAL AND DEMAGOGIC’ SPEECH IN GEORGIA

He flew to Atlanta to promote so-called “suffrage” legislation. HR 5746, the 719-page Freedom to Vote Act: John R. Lewis, would nationalize state election laws and seize those sovereign powers of the 50 legislatures that have so far defined the “times, places and manners” of their voting systems, per Article One, Section Four of the United States Constitution. Biden’s beloved bill would codify many of the dangerous measures that “temporarily” eased ballot security in 2020 as COVID-19 terrorized America.

Biden could have sold this pernicious measure with grace, charm and persuasion. He could have tied his words with honey. Instead, Biden bombed a vinegar factory.

“Do you want to be on the side of Dr. [Martin Luther] King or George Wallace?” Biden asked, while correcting him. “Do you want to side with John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to side with Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?” Biden forgot to mention that the three people on the wrong side of history were Democrats.

So, as Biden argues, if one disapproves of mass mail-in ballots — because they break the chain of custody that connects ballot deposit, collection, and tabulation — then one is like Wallace. , the former Democratic governor of Alabama. Wallace’s slogan was “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” He stood in a doorway in June 1963 to stop black students from entering the University of Alabama.

This record did not deter Biden from applauding Wallace in 1975. The then-Senator Biden said: “I think the Democratic Party could support a liberal George Wallace – someone who is not afraid to stand up and offend people, someone who wouldn’t bow down but would say what the American people know in their gut is true.”

The admiration was mutual. As Robert S. Boyd of the Detroit Free Press reported in May 1987, as he clashed with Southern voters, Biden “reminds them that former Governor George Wallace hailed him as one of the young politicians most remarkable in America”.

Repulsive.

Millions of Americans don’t like forcing states to practice ballot smuggling, that is, letting campaign agents collect mail-in ballots from voters’ homes and then submit ballots. handles to the honor system. Biden likens these people to Bull Connor.

Bull Connor sounds like a rodeo star. Barely. As Birmingham Public Safety Commissioner, Theophilus “Bull” Connor used dogs, not cattle. He stopped barking, snarling, police dogs at peaceful, mostly black, civil rights protesters in May 1963. He also used fire hoses to blast protesters on sidewalks and in gutters.

Surely such a villain was a racist Republican. On the contrary, in 1960, Bull Connor was elected one of two members from Alabama of the Democratic National Committee.

Grotesque.

Banks, hotels, airlines and other businesses routinely ask Americans of all races to show photo ID. Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser recently required residents to carry vaccination cards and photo ID with them whenever they leave their homes. An August Honest Elections Project survey of 1,200 voters found 81% in favor of voter ID, including 77% of black people. Biden claims these millions of Americans are like Confederate States President Jefferson Davis, a slave owner whose troops killed 364,511 Union soldiers during the Civil War, to preserve the evils of slavery.

After previously calling voter ID “vote suppression,” Congressman James Clyburn, DS.C., the U.S. House No. 3, suddenly announced last July that he could “ absolutely” support favorable voter identification legislation. In fact, Clyburn surprised observers by saying, “We’re still for voter ID.” According to Biden, now that Clyburn is backing voter ID, the man who saved his ailing Palmetto State primary bid is the reincarnation of Commander-in-Chief Robert E. Lee.

Hideous.

Biden also invoked “the Great Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan” and Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney. After disappearing for 44 days in the summer of 1964, the bodies of these Congress for Racial Equality workers were found piled up in an earthen dam in Mississippi. The KKK killed them. Biden associates those who want displaced and deceased voters removed from the electoral rolls with the racists who murdered Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney.

Biden said he would defend “our democracy against all enemies – foreign and, yes, domestic.” Thus, Biden views as national enemies the millions of Americans who want election integrity.

Biden is the same man who said during his inauguration, “With unity, we can do great things.” Biden’s unity idea is to cut an American flag in half with a machete.

Biden’s speech horrified even Democrats.

“Maybe the president went a little too far in his rhetoric,” Sen. Richard Durbin of Illinois told CNN. Racial arsonist Al Sharpton said on MSNBC that Biden’s remarks did not garner support. “I think he made a ‘You’re going to hell’ speech.”

Biden’s 2022 voter fraud playbook won’t reach his desk unless he can persuade Democratic sensitivists Kirsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia to torpedo the legislative filibuster. Sinema and Manchin value bipartisanship and respect the filibuster.

At least 75 million Republicans and millions of other thinking independents and Democrats want it to be easy to vote but hard to cheat. Insulting these Americans by aligning them with these rebellious Democratic fanatics was no way for Biden to win over those two senators he desperately needs to enact his dodgy voter fraud facilitation bill.
