While at MLK Memorial, Biden Repeats Huge Lie About Civil Rights Movement [Video]

Joe Biden made an appearance at the Martin Luther King Memorial today where he repeated a huge lie that he was involved in the civil rights movement.

Biden has told the lie so many times that he believes it now. It’s just like the AMRAK lie he told yesterday. There are several stories he can’t help but tell as he’s trying to be relatable. The big problem is that these stories are just not true. Anyone who has followed Biden over the years knows this is a pattern. He lies and is also a plagiarist.

The New York Times article, Biden’s First Run for President Was a Calamity. Some Missteps Still Resonate, goes into how Joe Biden has always “embellished.” He’s repeatedly lied about key things that never happened. He was caught plagiarizing speeches back in the mid-80’s s and has continued telling outright lies about his accomplishments to this day.

The NYT reported in June of this year: “In 1988, Joe Biden was prone to embellishment. Hints of that linger today. But unlike then, his message to voters is clear: He’s a stabilizing statesman in a tumultuous time”

One early example: Even though his advisors reminded him he hadn’t actually marched in the civil rights movement, he continued telling the story.

“When I marched in the civil rights movement, I did not march with a 12-point program,” Mr. Biden thundered, testing his presidential message in February 1987 before a New Hampshire audience. “I marched with tens of thousands of others to change attitudes. And we changed attitudes.”

Earlier this year, Biden spoke glowingly about “great friend” and notorious segregationist Fritz Hollings:

Former Vice President Joe Biden made an appearance in South Carolina and pandered to the crowd by mentioning his “great, great friend” Fritz Hollings.

Biden was criticized earlier this year by Kamala Harris for working in the Senate with his “great friend” Fritz Hollings who was a notorious segregationist.

TRANSCRIPT OF BIDEN’S REMARKS: “Uh, I want to, uh, I want to say, you know, it’s good to be back in Spartanburg…You know I want to thank you, Tyrus, for the introduction and uh…”

“The fact of the matter is that, uh, I want to thank all of you for coming out tonight. And, uh, folks you know, uh, I , uh, spent an awful lot of time in South Carolina and because of my good friend and he was my great, great friend and helped me a great deal through some very difficult times, uh, uh, Fritz Hollings…I miss him.”

At a town hall in Spartanburg, SC on 8/28/19, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised former reformed segregationist Senator Fritz Hollings (D-SC) as a “great, great friend.”
