Biden Reminisces About Old Days In The Senate When He’d Have Lunch With ‘Real Segregationists’ – His Fellow Democrat Reaction Says It All

In a speech given inside United Performance Metals in Butler County on Friday, President Joe Biden called for congress to support the Bipartisan U.S. Innovation Act and send it to him to sign.

U.S. Sens. Sherrod Brown, D-Mansfield, and Rob Portman, R-Cincinnati, are working on the act together. They appeared on stage with Biden.

Biden said the Act is going to bring generational investments in innovation, domestic manufacturing and lower prices.

Of course, he got himself lost again and went off-script.

Biden reminisced of the good old days when he would lunch with “real segregationists.”

“Even back in the old days when we had real segregationists — like [James] Eastland and [Strom] Thurmond and all those guys — at least we’d end up eating lunch together,” said Biden.

Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown just stared at Joe Biden.

This isn’t the first time for Biden to tell this story!

Biden shared that story at a campaign stop for 
Alabama Democrat Doug Jones in October 2017, telling a Birmingham crowd of more than 1,000 that it illustrates “what the system needs today.”

“Even in the days when I got here, the Democratic Party still had seven or eight old-fashioned Democratic segregationists,” Biden told those gathered, many of whom were African American. “You’d get up there and argue like the devil with them, and then you’d go down and have lunch or dinner together. We were divided on issues, but the political system worked.”

Joe did not simply compromise with segregationists — he also led the charge on an issue that kept black students away from the classrooms of white students. His legislative work against school integration advanced a more palatable version of the “separate but equal” doctrine and undermined the nation’s short-lived effort at educational equality, legislative and education history experts say.

“Biden, who I think has been good overall on civil rights, was a leader on anti-busing,” Rucker Johnson, author of the book “Children of the Dream: Why School Integration Works,” said. “A leader on giving America the language to oppose it despite it being the most effective means of school integration at that time.”

How can blacks support the DemComs like they traditionally do? It’s really mind boggling.

Keeping black students away from the classrooms of White students, as it turns out, was actually the the correct way to go. We should have kept it that way, obviously. Look at the hell White students and teachers have to go through everyday in schools infested with violent racist black students. It’s a nightmare.

Segregation is good, natural, healthy, and intelligent. Forced integration(the current system we in America live under today is only 58 years old) and has proven to be unworkable, dangerous, and extremely detrimental in dozens of ways to all races concerned. There was no vote in 1964 or even a consensus to bring about this obvious nonfunctional system of stupidity and ignorance America finds itself in today. Unquestionably Forced integration has not and will not aid in assisting to advance any part of humanity today-what so ever. The parasitic nature of today’s Forced integration only reinforces the mismanagement and lost hope of future human development with every passing day.
