So is media going to go after Biden for calling them “fine people?”
Via Daily Wire:
Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden praised a pro-confederacy group “who continue to display the Confederate flag” as “fine people” in newly resurfaced video highlighted by the Trump campaign.
The video is significant in large part due to the number of times that Biden has engaged in smearing President Donald Trump with the patently false claim that the president said white supremacists and neo-Nazis were “very fine people” in the wake of the Charlottesville tragedy in 2017.
The video of Biden, from 1993, happened during the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg while Biden was representing Delaware in the U.S. Senate.
Biden made the remarks while responding to comments from another Senator on the Judiciary Committee about a speech that Democratic Senator Howell Heflin delivered on the floor of the Senate.
Biden said [emphasis added], “I, too, heard that speech and, for the public listening to this, the Senator made a very moving and eloquent speech, as a son of the Confederacy, acknowledging that it was time to change and yield to a position that Senator Carol Moseley-Braun raised on the Senate floor, not granting a Federal charter to an organization made up of many fine people who continue to display the Confederate flag as a symbol.”
