Yesterday Joe Biden launched his campaign with a shamelessly dishonest reference to Charlottesville, Virginia, in which he joined a great many of his Trump-hating media pals in a flat-out lie, by insinuating that President Trump called neo-nazis and White supremacists “very fine people”.
Presumably, this was done to show that Mr. Biden, unlike Mr. Trump, was not a prejudiced man.
But, incredibly, before the day was out, Biden named symone sanders as a senior strategist to his campaign.
Regular readers may remember my blogs about sanders – who at one time was Press Secretary to Bernie Sanders (no relation) and, more recently, has been a commentator at what is left of CNN.
This is a link to one of them. And this is a key excerpt:
Here is what sanders had to say about Vice President Mike Pence walking out of a football came because some of the players kneeled during the national anthem:
“White people do not get to tell Black folks or anybody else what is acceptable form of protest!”
In other words, it’s not that nobody has the right to do this, it’s that White people don’t have the right. Not for Blacks and not for anyone else. If you’re White, shut up.
And if you think that might be just a regrettable fluke comment by sanders, how about this one, which she made after last year’s presidential election:
“In my opinion we don’t need white people leading the democratic party right now.”
“I’m here for the millennials and the brown folks”.
And if that isn’t enough for you, click here for another taste of who and what this person is.
Plainly stated, symone sanders is a hate-filled racist. And now she is a senior member of Joe Biden’s staff.
Biden has run for President before, and never gotten very far. If this astonishingly bad personnel decision is any indication, it’s not hard to see why.
