President Joe Biden made a bloody mess while he was in Selma, Alabama to commemorate the 58th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday.”
“Bloody Sunday” is called that because in 1965, police beat peaceful protesters who were there marching for voting rights.
The New York Times wrote about his trip and said his speech was focused on present-day voting rights as the Democratic Party leads the effort to protect access to the ballot box.
NYT wrote, “Even as Democrat-led efforts to protect access to the ballot have failed.” Really? Who is being denied the right to vote?
But the focus on Biden’s speech was not the end of the mess in Selma. The president once again lied about his involvement in the civil rights movement in his attempt to pander to the audience.
BIDEN: “I was a student up north in the civil rights movement.”
The problem is that there is no evidence that Biden was ever involved in the civil rights movement as a student.
This has been hashed over so many times, it’s uncertain whether Biden forgets that people know about this, or maybe he just doesn’t care and throws it out in speeches anyway.
It was way back in 1987 that Biden disavowed his lies, but he just keeps telling them over and over again.
And to do it in Selma just seems like a sacrilege.
Biden continues to make cringe-worthy remarks about race. Just last week at a Black History Event, he said he “may be a white boy, but he’s not stupid.”
The Selma mess continued with his remarks about the filibuster, he said it was somehow harming the right to vote.
Biden said, ”I will not let a filibuster obstruct the sacred right to vote, the right of any other right to vote from there!”
Does he need to be reminded of how many times he has praised the filibuster in the past? Last year, the Democrats filibustered 327 times. So, their push to change the rules now is nothing but a partisan power grab.

And here’s a young Biden talking about the filibuster…
