(Tea Party PAC) – While the Democrats paint their party as one absolutely packed with life-long anti-racists who abhor anything that can be even loosely tied to white supremacy.
Other than that whole, you know, Democrat history of the friggin’ KKK.
This legacy is one that’s coming to bite former Vice President and lifelong career politician, Joe Biden.
Earlier this week, Biden, whose handlers have been keeping him safely in his basement, emerged for the first time in months to give a clearly carefully staged press conference in Delaware.
During his comments to the press, Biden laid on the virtue signaling heavily, discussing race and the “soul” of America.
“I think the idea of bringing down, I think all those Confederate monuments to Confederate soldiers and generals who strongly supported secession and the maintenance of slavery and went to war to do it, I think those statues belong in museums, they don’t belong in public places,” Biden said.
Just ten years ago, however, Biden was singing the praises of KKK member and fellow Democrat Senator, Robert Byrd, who he called a “mentor” and “friend.”
This may have escaped the very selective memories of the mainstream Democratic establishment, but it hasn’t escaped the notice of the Trump campaign.
“To me…for a lot of us, he was a mentor and a friend, and for a lot of us, he was a guide,” Biden said at Byrd’s funeral.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who led one of the greatest political publicity stunts in US history clad in African garb with a mask kneeling in the Capitol building in memory of George Floyd, also had some very adoring things to say for a man who we can only reason held genuinely white supremacist beliefs.
“Senator Byrd’s service and leadership are more than worthy to be remembered for many generations to come,” she praised at the time. “He was a great American patriot.”
