5 Times Biden Endorsed KKK Leaders
Updated: May 4
Whether it's Joe Biden's controversial campaign against integrated school busing — the practice of bringing white and black students out of their neighborhoods in order to integrate schools. Or was it his insulting comments about Indians running convenient stores, Barack Obama being "clean and well spoken"?
Perhaps the most egregious example of Biden’s racist use of power is 1994’s Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, the crime bill he wrote and continues to support vocally to this day. There's a long history of consistency with Joe Biden's views on minorities followed by personal opportunism. Below are several instances of Joe Biden proudly and publicly endorsing former leadership of the Klu Klux Klan.
Eulogizing Robert Byrd
A eulogy by then-Vice President Joe Biden delivered for the late West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd (D): "This is a guy who continued to taste and smell and feel the suffering of the people of his state. He tasted it! That's why it was so deeply ingrained in him."
Byrd started his political life as an Exalted Cyclops in the Ku Klux Klan and one of the KKK's most prominent recruiters. In 1944, Byrd wrote the following in a letter to Senator Theodore Bilbo: "I shall never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by my side ... Rather I should die a thousand times and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds." Byrd filibustered the 1964 Civil Rights Act for 14 hours.
Do we need to mention Byrd calling saying there are "white n-words" in society too? And he said it on national TV.. talk about feeling safe and protected.
Eulogizing Ernest Hollings
Biden remembers his friend during a eulogy in 2019. As recently as the 1980s, Senator (D) Ernest Hollings, Democrat, publicly referred to blacks as “darkies” and Hispanics as “wetbacks" and suggested black people were "savage cannibals".
Praising Strom Thurmond
Video of Joe Biden praising "one of my closest friends," notorious segregationist Strom Thurmond. Biden begins his remarks by describing the close relationship he developed with Thurmond after joining the Senate in 1973. Thurmond ran for president in 1948 on a segregationist platform and led a record-setting filibuster to block the Civil Rights Act in 1957.
Endorsing the KKK Women's Auxiliary
Senator Joe Biden defends and endorses Ku Klux Klan women's auxiliary group, The United Daughter's of The Confederacy, during a special sitting to debate the extension of special copyright patent privileges relating to their use of the Confederate Flag.
Hypocrisy with KKK Associations
Leftwing activists thrive on attempting to connect their opponents with the KKK... but if recalled correctly, it was Joe Biden giving heartfelt eulogies to his Klansmen friends. This compilation is a more inclusive video.
