Biden's Desperate Move With Black Voters: Labeling Trump a Racist While Ignoring His Own Track Record

President Biden this week made a desperate appeal to black voters as polling numbers suggest his rival, Donald Trump, is surging. But Joe has his own rich history of racial issues that voters need to be reminded of.


So bad are Biden’s numbers – the President dropped 12 points while Trump doubled his own according to a polling average cited by CNN – that normally reliable media sycophants could hardly contain their dismay.

“My goodness gracious,” CNN data analyst Harry Enten somberly said while reporting the numbers.

The White House, sensing a sinking ship in the making, responded by releasing an ad titled “Contempt” which paints Trump as a racist. Because, as Democrats have made quite clear over the years, that’s the one thing they can pander to black voters on—racial grievances.

The problem is, as Democrats have also made quite clear, they have little to no interest in telling the truth.


The number of falsehoods is remarkable for a 30-second ad. Let’s try to go through them.

The first quote from Trump states, “Of course I hate these people.”

Now, it’s obvious what the Biden campaign is attempting to do. They have the quote first up in white block letter, while in smaller red type below it mentions he is referencing the 1989 Central Park Five case. That case involved five minority teenagers wrongfully convicted of a rape in Central Park in Manhattan.

Conveniently left out of this is the fact that in the interview where Trump is being quoted, he also mentions the five at that time had “admitted they were guilty”. On that premise, who wouldn’t express hatred towards presumed rapists who had given confessions?


It wasn’t until 2001, 12 years after Trump made this statement, that a serial rapist came forward admitting guilt and exonerating the five who had tragically and unnecessarily served years in prison. But the quote is money in the eyes of Team Biden. And they excitedly throw it out there as a means to portray Trump as a racist who ‘hates these people.’

Next in the ad, we have a reference to Charlottesville, a hoax that has been debunked a myriad of times over the years. The President though, loves this particular lie. It’s what he based his 2020 campaign on in the first place. And despite it being thoroughly disproven, he maintains the lie years later.

The gist, as most know by now, involves the false claim that Trump called neo-Nazis in Charlottesville “fine people”.

As PolitiFact points out, Biden repeatedly leaves out the context of Trump explicitly saying, “And you had people — and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists — because they should be condemned totally.”

It’s an important quote since the “Contempt” ad states flatly: “Trump stood with violent white supremacists” and shows an image of him at the press conference in question.

Blatant and malicious lies.


The ad also includes the lie that Trump warned there would be violence – a “bloodbath” – if he wins the election and that he would serve as a “dictator”.

In reality, a realm President Biden hasn’t resided in for some time, Trump’s speech invoking the phrase “bloodbath” was referencing the auto industry, indicating it would be decimated if Biden won re-election.

As for the “dictator” comments – the former President joked at a town hall that he would not abuse power as a way to exact revenge on his political opponents, saying he wouldn’t act like a “dictator” if re-elected … “except on day one.”

Would The Real Racist Please Stand Up?

Okay. Phew. That was a lot of hard work. Fact-checking a 30-second ad and finding at minimum four lies isn’t easy. Can you imagine having to fact-check a full speech from President Biden?

You know, after you translate it using your handy pocket ‘Mumble to English Dictionary’.

Let’s get back to the original point: Biden’s projection on race.

The President has, for decades, used the false persona of good ol’ Uncle Joe, the doddering but well-meaning old man, as a means to escape media scrutiny over his very own racist remarks. 

Prior to former President Obama securing the nomination in 2008, Biden was also a presidential candidate but struggled to raise money and support after calling Barack the “first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”


In 2006, Biden was caught on video saying, “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

(Narrator: He wasn’t joking.)

In 2018, he claimed the GOP “don’t want black folks voting,” a comment incredibly reminiscent of his 2012 pronouncement that Republicans and Mitt Romney “wanted to put them all back in chains.”

But wait, there’s more. President Biden has also contributed these racially charged comments over the course of his career:

  • Warned that desegregated buses would lead to a future where one’s children would be forced into a “racial jungle.”

  • Said the African-American community lacks a diversity of thought.

  • Assumed being a poor kid equates to being black.

  • Claimed anyone who doesn’t vote for a particular candidate is not really black.

He literally has praised the late Senator Robert Byrd, a one-time top officer in the Ku Klux Klan as “a very close friend of mine, one of my mentors.”

And yet, it’s Donald Trump that gets labeled a racist. In reality, the presumptive Republican nominee during his first term had a track record for black Americans that would rival anybody’s – including Biden and Obama.

A 2019 CBS News report suggested even Barack would be envious of then-President Trump’s record with minorities.

“It can be fairly said that this administration, because of President Trump’s quiet prodding, has done quite a bit for funding of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the First Step Act, which was a massive first step toward criminal justice reform,” said reporter Major Garrett.


“Plus opportunity zones in the tax bill directed at communities of color,” Garrett added. “That is a legacy on the agenda side that almost any president after three years would want to claim, particularly President Obama.”

Even CNN host Van Jones, not exactly a MAGA supporter, has praised Trump’s record.

“I think it’s really unfortunate because Donald Trump, and I get beat up by liberals every time I say it but I keep saying it, he has done good stuff for the Black community,” Jones admitted. “Opportunity Zone stuff, Black college stuff, I worked with him on criminal stuff, I saw Donald Trump have African American people, formally incarcerated, in the White House, embraced them, treated them well."

“There is a side to Donald Trump that I think he does not get enough credit for.”

It’s true. But there is also a side to Joe Biden that he doesn’t get credit for. If anybody in this election can be pegged as a racist, it would be him.
