Joe Biden already has plenty of trouble to face during his uphill battle to dethrone Donald Trump in November, and a Georgia Democrat just added a whole bunch more to his plate.
Biden’s shortcomings are plenty. The former Vice President has had trouble stringing together any more than a few coherent sentences in a row out on the campaign trail as of late, but has been more than willing to lash out at voters during bizarre and bombastic temper tantrums. In the span of just a few weeks, Biden called one town hall attendee “fat” and “a damn liar”, another a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”, and told a Detroit factory worker that he was “full of s***”.
This week, more of Biden’s ugly behavior was being called out, this time by one of his fellow Democrats.
Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones (D), who has received hundreds of threats from members of his own party due to his public support of President Donald Trump, claimed Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden is a “full-blooded bigot.”
Jones’ remarks were made in an op-ed he published through the Daily Caller, where he stated he would not be voting for the former vice president in November.
From that piece:
Even before that, where was Biden for 36 years in the United States Senate on this issue? I’ll tell you. He was too busy shouting, “my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.” That racial jungle he was referring to includes black and brown Americans like me. Right now, President Trump is being defined as a racist by the media, when in reality Joe Biden is the full-blooded bigot.
Don’t take my word for it, take then-Senator Joe Biden’s own words for it. “The truth is, every major crime bill since 1976 that’s come out of this Congress, every minor crime bill, has had the name of the Democratic senator from the State of Delaware: Joe Biden.” Now that Biden is running for president in a woke Democratic Party in 2020, he’s attempting to sweep his racist legacy under the rug. We can’t let him.
Joe Biden is directly responsible for the mass incarceration policies of the 1980s and 1990s, which decimated the black community. Biden authored the 1994 crime bill which imposed mandatory minimum sentences, disproportionately putting hundreds of thousands of young black men in prison.
With only 4 months left until America heads to the polls, this isn’t likely the last time that we’ll be hearing about Joe Biden’s trouble past.
