Wait. It wasn’t Democrats that kidnapped Africans, brought them to America & then enslaved them. White men did that. After slavery ended, it was white men who engaged in domestic terrorism towards black folk. Strom Thurmondchanged parties for a reason
an actual scorched earth campaign would be to note that biden s collegial working relationship with james east
An actual scorched-earth campaign would be to note that Biden's collegial working relationship with James Eastland centered on their mutual opposition to busing for school integration, and that his relationship with Strom Thurmondcentere don expanding the federal carceral state.
talk about old new it s not just eastland and talmadge remember biden traveled to sc to deliver eulogies for b
Talk about old/new: It's not just Eastland and Talmadge. Remember Biden traveled to SC to deliver eulogies for both Strom Thurmondand Ernest Hollings. They were his colleagues. A world, and a SC, gone by.
while it s true biden did not praise eastland in the comments that caused controversy he does have a long hist
While it's true, Biden did not "praise" Eastland in the comments that caused controversy. He does have a long history of praising segregationists like Strom Thurmond– who he denied was racist upon his death in 2003 and John Stennis, who Biden called a "hero of the time" in 1988.
i did not praise racists says biden well maybe not last week but he did give the eulogy at strom thurmonds fun
“I did not praise racists,” says Biden. Well, maybe not *last* week, but he did give the eulogy at Strom Thurmond’s funeral. @andrewmcockburn on Biden’s disastrous legislative legacy (particularly in regards to race).
