Plantation Joe Biden gave a eulogy for the racist Dixiecrat and segregationist Strom Thurmond in 2003

Can you imagine if President Trump eulogized open racists such as Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd? There would be riots in the streets. Yet the mainstream media will not challenge Joe Biden’s history of embracing racist Dixiecrats such as Thurmond and Byrd. America’s corrupt Leftist Black leaders are silent as well. Instead, they will hail “Plantation Joe” Biden as a champion for the Black community. It’s a disgrace.

Remember when Joe Biden gave a eulogy for Strom Thurmond?

He’s giving a video message for the the family of George Floyd. He was more generous for his deceased racist Dixiecrat friend

Biden did not attend the private funeral and burial of George Floyd today. Instead, Biden recorded a video to be played during the service.

Biden gives a good eulogy; people often ask him to speak for their dead. Unlike poor Mr Floyd, he had no issue attending the funeral of former Sen. Strom Thurmond — the racist Dixiecrat who once said, ‘there’s not enough troops in the army to force the Southern people to break down segregation and admit the negro race into our theaters, into our swimming pools, into our homes, and into our churches.’

Thurmond specifically requested that Biden speak at his funeral, which the then-Delaware senator gladly did.

‘Strom Thurmond was also a brave man, who in the end made his choice and moved to the good side,’ Biden said. ‘I disagreed deeply with Strom on the issue of civil rights and on many other issues, but I watched him change. We became good friends.’

During the eulogy speech, Biden said that Thurmond, who was the only senator to ever reach 100 years of age while in office, had overcome his racist past through specific actions such as voting in favor of an extension of the Voting Rights Act and the establishment of Martin Luther King Day. This, he said, proved him to be a different man than the one who delivered the longest ever filibuster speech from a senator in opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1957.

‘I went to the Senate emboldened, angered, and outraged at age 29 about the treatment of African Americans in this country, what everything that for a period in his life Strom had represented,’ Biden said. ‘But then I met the man.’

Kumbaya! Cockburn is a strong believer in reconciliation, but he couldn’t help scoffing at the moment when Biden spoke fondly of his time working with the deceased senator on writing a crime bill that was later vetoed by President Ronald Reagan. The Biden-Thurmond crime bill would have expanded civil asset forfeiture and put an end to federal parole, meaning many more black people  stuck in prison. That’s bipartisanship at work in America!
