John James’ op-ed highlights how upset James is with Joe Biden’s disrespectful statement that “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, you ain’t black.” Biden’s statement was thoroughly disrespectful but that didn’t prevent Democrats from spinning the incident.

Sheila Jackson-Lee told Bret Baier that Joe Biden had said this offensive line in jest but that it didn’t turn out as funny as they’d hoped. There’s just one problem with that statement. Biden issued a statement an hour earlier that essentially apologized to black voters. As for Biden’s record vs. President Trump’s record towards African-Americans, Biden should tread lightly. Biden authored the 1994 crime bill, which led to the mass incarceration of African-Americans. Another part of that bill was the 3 strikes law, which also disproportionately hurt African-Americans. Finally, income inequality between communities of color and whites increased. That isn’t a record to be proud of.

By comparison, President Trump’s economic policies reduced the gap in incomes between African-Americans and whites. Trump’s policies also led to the lowest minority unemployment rates in our nation’s history. While those are significant accomplishments that’ve improved the lives of African-Americans, they aren’t the pinnacle of Trump accomplishments towards the African-American community.

This ad, featuring Alice Johnson, blows away all of Biden’s accomplishments:

To Vice President Biden, if you think that your record of mass incarcerations of African-Americans is a positive, especially compared with President Trump’s reversal of those evils, then your moral compass is worthless. Here’s something worth considering from John James’ op-ed:

Do leaders of the Democratic Party really think they “own” the black vote? Will anyone from the Democratic Party call out Joe Biden? Will my opponent in Michigan’s U.S. Senate race, Sen. Gary Peters? After 30 years of rank-and-file partisanship as a career politician, I suspect he won’t.

This isn’t just a Joe Biden problem. It’s a white Democrat problem. This is important, too:

Biden’s views have been exposed and stand in stark contrast to President Trump, who visited Michigan Thursday and actually listened to the needs of black people from black people.

On his visit the president asked black community leaders what we need to deal with COVID-19, a disease that has unmasked long-standing inequities in black communities. I was there, joining in advocating for jobs and training to build up our black communities and the entire state of Michigan.

The biggest difference between President Trump and Joe Biden is that President Trump listens to people. Joe Biden doesn’t. Biden is an arrogant bastard. Shame on him.

Before he jumped into the race, Joe Biden’s Democrat presidential challengers brought up his history of his inappropriate (and creepy) touching of women of all ages. As quickly as it started, though, it died down. That’s unfortunate. Joe Biden is a creepy old white man.

As sad as Biden’s creepy touchy habits are, that isn’t his worst character defect. This article highlights Joe Biden’s worst character defect.

Never willing to let a good race-baiting opportunity go to was, “former Vice President Joe Biden rang the alarm that ‘Jim Crow is sneaking back’ at a campaign rally in South Carolina, the south’s first primary state that is seen as key to clinching the Democratic nomination.” This isn’t surprising, just disgusting and repetitive. Joe Biden has been doing this for years. Here’s another instance of Biden playing the race-baiting card:

Simply put, Biden is both a race-baiter and a pervert. It’s time that sensible Democrats rejected this type of campaigning. That’s if sensible Democrats still exist. Then there’s this:

On systemic racism, Biden gave the example that if two men named “Jamal” and “John” applied for the same job, “John” would easily get the gig.

I’m tired of hearing this crap. That sounds like something another old white Democrat (Mark Dayton) said.

Biden held a campaign rally Saturday in Columbia, the Palmetto State’s capital and home to the University of South Carolina. Bidden added to his usual fighting-for-the-middle-class stump speech by calling for protecting voting rights and ending “systemic racism.” Biden cited numerous states’ voting laws which he said are “mostly directed at people of color.”

Andrew Gillum and Stacey Abrams tried playing that race card, too. They almost won. Neither race should’ve been close. Apparently, Democrats can’t help themselves when it comes to race-baiting:

It’s sickening to see Democrats pandering to Al Sharpton, aka Tawana Brawley’s co-conspirator. While it’s sickening, it isn’t surprising.

According to this article, the Missouri state senator who advocated for President Trump’s assassination “has been stripped of her committee assignments” even after apologizing.

Sen. Chappelle-Nadal’s apology said “President Trump, I apologize to you and your family. I also apologize to all the people in Missouri. And I also apologize to my colleagues in the Missouri legislature for the mistake that I made.” Sen. Chappelle-Nadal made her apology while in “at the Wellspring Church in Ferguson, Missouri.”

Democrats have insisted since President Trump was inaugurated that he’s a racist. Democrats have also insisted that they’re the protectors of the First Amendment. Neither statement is true. Further, Sen. Chappelle-Nadal has shown herself to represent the worst in politics.

For years, Democrats have portrayed Republicans as racists. The more we highlight Democrats like Sen. Chappelle-Nadal, the more it’s painfully obvious that there’s lots of racists in the Democratic Party.

The tide might be turning, albeit grudgingly. After last weekend’s Antifa’s Berkeley riot, Nancy Pelosi criticized Antifa last night, saying “Our democracy has no room for inciting violence or endangering the public, no matter the ideology of those who commit such acts. The violent actions of people calling themselves antifa [sic] in Berkeley this weekend deserve unequivocal condemnation, and the perpetrators should be arrested and prosecuted.”

After the Charlottesville riot two weeks ago, Democrats, not to mention the MSM, were apoplectic because President Trump didn’t respond forcefully and quickly enough for their liking. It was a 5-day story. Ms. Pelosi sat silent on the Berkeley riots for several days. We didn’t see articles from pundits like Charles Blow or Eugene Robinson criticizing Ms. Pelosi’s silence.


Pelosi’s words ring hollow when viewed historically:

The House’s top Democrat had repeatedly slammed the National Park Service as “misguided” for allowing the rally, saying she had “grave concerns” about the “public safety hazard” NPS would create by “permitting a white supremacist rally” in the middle of Crissy Field in San Francisco.

Simply put, Ms. Pelosi criticized Antifa after the political pressure got high. I’d argue that her ‘apology’ is as phony as a $3 bill.

The evidence is mounting that the Democratic Party is returning to its racist roots. It’s important to remind people that the Democratic Party was the party that wrote the Jim Crow laws and filibustered the Civil Rights Act.
