Biden’s throne of lies make me wonder what hasn’t he lied about…
2020 Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden lied in 1987 during his first of many runs for the Oval Office by claiming he marched in the Civil Rights Movement–something he never did.
The New York Times‘ Matt Flegenheimer, resurfaced the 1987 lie by Biden before an audience in New Hampshire, where Biden was campaigning for the Democrat nomination for president for the first time in his career.
“When I marched in the civil rights movement, I did not march with a 12-point program,” Biden said in February 1987. “I marched with tens of thousands of others to change attitudes. And we changed attitudes.”
And when Biden made that false claim that he had marched in the Civil Rights Movement when in fact he had not done any such marching, his aides cringed.
A few months later, in September 1987, Biden’s lies and “recklessness as a candidate” had finally caught up.
“I’ve done some dumb things,” Biden said at that presser. “And I’ll do dumb things again.”
Despite Biden’s vow to keep campaigning, Biden quit the race within a week.
These revelations about Biden come on the heels of other recently resurfaced comments that Biden made in 1973, when Biden made a number of racially insensitive remarks.
In addition to lecturing in Cleveland on what Biden believed was “good for the N-word,” Biden then laid out his opposition to being held accountable for racial divisions in America.
I do not buy the concept, popular in the ’60s, which said, “We have suppressed the black man for 300 years and the white man is now far ahead in the race for everything our society offers. In order to even the score, we must now give the black man a head start, or even hold the white man back, to even the race. I don’t buy that,” Biden told a weekly newspaper in 1975. “I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather.I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own generation. And I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what happened 300 years ago.”
Biden’s style of shoot first and ask questions later, is how he has always been.
The question for Biden now, moving forward, is whether or not he can avoid these pitfalls and mistakes, or if his gaffe-proneness will come back to haunt him, but will it last?
