Our regular here My Name is Jack gives a history lesson that those Democrats knocking Joe Biden should be aware of…..
‘If these people are “offended”by Biden,then they must be “offended by most of the politicians of the Twentieth Cenury ,all of whom worked with segregationists during their political years.
John F Kennedy’s best friend in the Senate was George Smathers, a segregationist from Florida.
Robert F Kennedy, who was one of the patron saints of American liberals of the late sixties served as counsel to the Senate Permanent Investigations Committee,His boss?Sen. John L McClellan of Arkansas ,a well known segregationist.
Bill Clinton once worked for J. William Fulbright,a segregationist Senator from Arkansas and discussed on many occasions his open courting of Arkansas segregationist Governor Orval Faunus during his early political runs.
The so called Republican/Southern Democrat coalition of the Truman-Eisenhower-Kennedy Years was well known as a thorn in the side of liberal initiatives in the forties,fifties and sixties.
While they attempted to thwart his Civil Rights legislation,Southern segregationist Senators worked closely with Lyndon Johnson on much of the Great Society social legislation.
Richard Nixon was well known for working with Southern Democrats during his Presidency and even attempted to use John Stennis, the segregationist Senator From Mississippi , to “authenticate “ his version of what was said on the White House tapes during Watergate.
Jimmy Carter ,as a State Senator in Georgia, worked with then Governor Lester Maddox a well known segregationist on legislation in the Georgia Senate.
I could go on but we all get the drift.
If you want to oppose Biden, fine but using this is a cheap shot as even Civil Rights veteran Rep.John Lewis has noted.
This was the political reality for much of the last century.’
