Biden’s ‘Voting Rights’ Speech Stinks Up Atlanta

Vulgar. Disgusting. Repugnant.

These are three of the more charitable adjectives that describe President Joe Biden’s execrable speech on Tuesday. He flew to Atlanta to promote so-called “voting rights” legislation that would nationalize state election laws and codify many of the dangerous measures that “temporarily” loosened ballot security in 2020, as COVID-19 terrorized America.

Biden could have laced his words with honey. Instead, Biden bombed a vinegar factory.

“Do you want to be on the side of Dr. [Martin Luther] King or George Wallace?” Biden asked. “Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”

So, Biden argues, if one disfavors mass mail-in ballots — because they break the chain of custody that links the casting, collection, and tabulation of ballots — then one is just like Wallace, Alabama’s former Democrat governor. Wallace’s slogan was “Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” He stood in a doorway in June 1963 to prevent black students from integrating the University of Alabama. 


Millions of Americans dislike forcing states to practice ballot trafficking, i.e., letting campaign workers collect mail-in ballots from voters’ homes and then submit fistfuls of them on the honor system. Biden equates these people with Bull Connor.

Bull Connor sounds like a rodeo star. Hardly. As Birmingham’s Commissioner of Public Safety, Theophilus “Bull” Connor used canines, not bovines. He sicced barking, snarling, police dogs on peaceful, mainly black civil rights protestors in May 1963. He also used fire hoses to blast demonstrators across sidewalks and into gutters.

Surely, such a villain was a racist Republican. Au contraire, in 1960, Bull Connor was elected one of Alabama’s two members of the Democratic National Committee.


Banks, hotels, airlines, and other businesses routinely ask Americans of all races to present photo ID. Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently required residents to carry vaccination cards and photo ID whenever they leave home. An August Honest Elections Project survey of 1,200 voters found that 81 percent favored voter ID, including 77 percent of blacks. Biden asserts that these millions of Americans are just like President of the Confederate States Jefferson Davis, a slaveowner whose troops killed 364,511 Union soldiers in the Civil War, to preserve the evils of slavery.


Biden also invoked “the Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan” and Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner, and James Chaney. After vanishing for 44 days in the summer of 1964, the bodies of these Congress of Racial Equality workers were found stuffed into an earthen dam in Mississippi. The KKK killed them. Biden associates those who want relocated and deceased voters removed from voter rolls with the racists who murdered Goodman, Schwerner, and Chaney.

Biden said that he would defend “our democracy against all enemies — foreign and, yes, domestic.” So, Biden considers domestic enemies the millions of Americans who want election integrity.

Biden is the same man who said at his inauguration: “With unity we can do great things.” Biden’s idea of unity is to slice an American flag in two with a machete.

Biden’s speech horrified even Democrats.

“Perhaps the president went a little too far in his rhetoric,” Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois told CNN. Racial arsonist Al Sharpton told MSNBC that Biden did not build support. “I think he gave a ‘You’re going to Hell’ speech.”

Biden’s Vote Fraud Instruction Manual of 2022 will not reach his desk unless he can persuade Democrat senators Kirsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia to torpedo the legislative filibuster.

At least 75 million Republicans and millions more independents and thinking Democrats want to make it easy to vote but hard to cheat. Insulting these Americans by aligning them with these revolting Democrat bigots was no way for Biden to win these two senators he desperately needs to enact his dodgy vote-fraud facilitation bill.

Someone please educate the president. Abraham Lincoln was a Republican and Jefferson Davis was a Democrat. Martin Luther King was a Republican (according to his niece and the best information available). George Wallace was a Democrat. And for the coup d’etat, BOTH John Lewis AND Bull Connor were democrats! The president’s logic escapes comprehension.

I’m sure the Universities of Delaware and Syracuse share immense pride for their political contributions but I doubt that this sundowner was among their finest. In fact, this was the only president to graduate either Delaware or Syracuse University and I’d bet it sticks in their throat to admit this one. In fact, I’d guess nobody wants to mention any involvement with this fool.

Seems America’s best hope would see the Delaware doofus resign and the vice president impeached. With a little luck, the speaker will be a sensible conservative to jump-start the nation on what’s certain to be a long road back to free enterprise and prosperity. The first step would ensure voter honesty with photo identification and facial recognition along with other biometric identification.

Thank you, Gene for a good description of the situation in our country today, as well as your reminder on the people in our history which our doofus included in his ridiculous, unnecessary speech in Georgia which some racist made up for him to read on the teleprompter.

This guy doesn’t have a clue what he’s saying or talking about (and there’s no way I could ever refer to him as “president”)! And as for educating him? His mental capacity doesn’t allow for retention of anything, sadly. He’s nothing but a puppet in a suit and tie, whose strings are being manipulated by the puppeteers behind the curtain. And THEIR goal is to turn America into a socialist/communist country where they can ultimately pull the strings of all of us. Making fools of all Americans in the eyes of the whole world along the way! May God please help us. 🙁

The basic definition of racism is represented if a person
of a race believes that his or her race is superior or
inferior to a person of another race.
That racist belief is not, necessarily, wrong; it is limited
to one’s belief; it may be ignorant; it is informed by the
accumulation of information and a perception thereof.
If one allows one’s racist “belief” to adversely affect
actions towards one of another race, that passive belief
would have been morphed into damaging that person
of another race and that must be met with severe
Further, if one suggests that a person of an another race is
not capable of functioning as well as one’s race, he or she is
displaying the classic definition of racism.
When President Biden and other Democrat politicians suggest
that mandating a voter identification card is racist, they appear
to be implying that individuals who are non-white are incapable
of doing that which one who is white is able to do; again, that
appears to be another classic example of racism which should
be avoided and spotlighted as a disgusting and extremely
negative issue.
Thank you,
