On Wednesday night, Joe Biden's Democratic Party failed to pass his federal takeover of elections. Again. They also failed to change the filibuster rules. Again. Nothing but failing all around. It all but confirms that
calling his opponents
enemies, traitors, and racists last week
was ineffective messaging. Also, contrary to what Joe Biden may believe, neither
want to date him.
Jen Psaki went into "Ackshually, what the president meant mode..." immediately after Biden's speech, claiming he wasn't making a "human comparison" when he compared his human opponents to human segregationists. Not everyone bought that as an excuse. Our puddingheaded president was challenged at a press conference, where he had another of his old man meltdowns.
Joe Biden gets very angry at
when he presses him about comparing Republicans who oppose his voting bill to George Wallace and Bull Connor
REPORTER: Mr. President, last week you said people who disagree with you on your federal takeover of elections were racist and segregationist. Kinda divisive, don't you think?
JOE BIDEN: Listen here, you young jerkface. I never called my opponents racist and segregationist. Or compared them to segregationists. You're just too stupid to know that. Go back and read what I said. I just pooped.
"I ask every elected official in America...do you want to be on the side of Dr. King and George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Conner? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?"
To you youngbloods who don't understand Biden's old-timey references, Wallace was a segregationist, Conner released the hounds on protesters, and Davis was the President of the Confederacy.
If I were an "independent" "fact" checker, I would rate this as true. Joe Biden, in fact, did not say the exact words, "I am comparing my opponents to racists and segregationists." He merely invited his opponents to ask themselves a question: Are okay being on the side of racists and segregationists when it came to this one piece of voting legislation? A piece of voting legislation that if you disagree with, liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) fling race cards at you like they're Gambit from the X-Men.
However, President Biden didn't say those exact words that he was accused of saying, in that exact order, as he has been accused of saying. He only implied them. But implying isn't saying.
