Johnson Fires Back After Biden Attacks GOP

( – Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson blasted US President Joe Biden on February 22 after some aggressive remarks that the commander-in-chief made about the Republican Party. Johnson said that the liberal leader was trying to attack conservatives as he knew he had poor chances of winning the presidential election.

On February 21, President Biden stated at a fundraiser that the Republican Party was considerably worse than racial segregationists of the past, adding that the current GOP was even worse than the “racists” he served alongside during the 1970s. According to the White House press pool, the commander-in-chief said he knew what he was talking about as he has been a senator since 1972 and served with numerous bigots that “set terrible records on race,” including Strom Thurmond. He added that today’s Republicans were even worse, accusing them of not believing in “basic democratic principles.”

Thurmond was a South Carolina Democratic senator and a famous “Dixiecrat” presidential candidate who strongly supported racial segregation in the country. Some media outlets said that President Biden’s choice to mention him was notable because of his good relationship with Thurmond, whom he eulogized after his death, saying that he “watched him change.”

The liberal leader said in the eulogy that while he felt outraged and angered by what Thurmond represented and the treatment of African Americans in the United States, he eventually changed his view after meeting “the man.”

On his Twitter account, Johnson fired back, stating that President Biden made the remarks as he was “desperate” because of the way he was “underwater in the polls.” The House Speaker also said that the commander-in-chief was “outrageous” and was “playing the race card” to boost his popularity, as he’s the least popular president to run for re-election in US history.

Some political analysts said it’s not a coincidence that President Biden is attacking Republicans and portraying them as racists, as he has done in numerous elections over the last few years. One of the most famous moments came during the 2012 presidential election between President Barack Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney when he said that if the conservative won, blacks would be put “back in chains.”

While Biden claims to have the moral high ground when it comes to race, he doesn’t have a whole lot of ground to stand on. His past paints an unflattering picture, such as the moment in 2020 when Biden stated if African Americans didn’t vote for him, then they “ain’t black.”
