An old video clip of Joe Biden shows when as a US senator he referred to members of a KKK-affiliated group as being filled with “many fine people” during a 1993 Senate hearing.
In the course of the Senate confirmation hearing for then-Supreme Court nominee Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Biden, who was the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman, made a shocking remark about the United Daughters of the Confederacy, a group that to this day stands for preserving Confederate statues. The group has ties to the Ku Klux Klan.
Biden began talking by referring to a speech that was made on the Senate floor by Senator Howell Heflin (D-AL), who was showing his support of Senator Carol Moseley Braun’s (D-IL) efforts to deny the renewal of a Confederate flag design patent to the Klan-affiliated group.
“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 Sen. 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,” Biden said during the 1993 hearing.
“The charter would have given them the right, the imprimatur of the federal government to do that. It had nothing to do with the First Amendment, Judge, so don’t worry. But the senator made a very significant speech rivaled only, in my view, by a private speech given to me personally by a man whose office I now occupy, Sen. John Stennis from Mississippi,” Biden added.
First off, why did Biden feel the need to bring that up during a SCOTUS confirmation for now-Justice Ginsburg?
Within the moments after the resurfaced clip ends, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted against renewing the design patent, which comes up for consideration of reauthorization every 14 years.
Biden spokesman Andrew Bates pointed to a tweet of his where he writes, “You don’t want to bring up the phrase ‘fine people’ in any context.”
The “fine people” quip was a reference to President Trump’s comments during his Charlottesville speech back in 2017 when a protest turned deadly.
At the time CNN and other Fake News outlets edited Trump’s speech to make it appear that he called neo-Nazis and white nationalists “very fine people,” but that never happened. What the president did was condemn those two hate groups and was really talking about people on both sides of the issue of a Confederate statue being removed and a park being renamed, who had nothing to do with the neo-Nazis, white nationalists on one side, and the violent radical Marxists ANTIFA on the other.
TRUMP: Oh no, George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down – excuse me. Are we going to take down, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? You like him? Okay, good. Are we going to take down his statue? He was a major slave owner. Are we going to take down his statue? You know what? It’s fine, you’re changing history, you’re changing culture, and you had people – and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally – but you had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists, okay? And the press has treated them absolutely unfairly. Now, in the other group also, you had some fine people, but you also had troublemakers and you see them come with the black outfits and with the helmets and with the baseball bats – you had a lot of bad people in the other group too.

WATCH: (Trump’s condemnation begins at the 1:20 mark)
Did you ever hear that on a cable news station, outside of maybe Fox News? Probably not, because the Fake News media wants you to think that Donald Trump defended racist hate groups when the exact opposite occurred. There is a whole truth world out there that you may never have been exposed, because the Left goes strongly out of its way to shield you from ever hearing about it.
If you’re still on the fence, at least use these two truths we’ve shared with you in this story to get you curious enough to look into other things the Fake News has told you about Trump, and trust me, they’re all lies.
You’re being played, folks, played by the mainstream news media. Everything they ever told you about Trump being a racist is a lie. And trust me, I researched every one of them before putting my support behind the man.
Why would they lie so badly like this? Because Trump is pro America and they are not. They want to fundamentally change our society so that you no longer recognize it, and Trump is America First. They can’t have that, so they do everything they can to make you think he’s a horrible person when he’s the exact opposite.
Joe Biden launched his 2020 campaign based on that Charlottesville lie, saying that the president called neo Nazis and white nationalists “very fine people,” and he has said it on numerous other occasions since then. Joel Pollack of Breitbart News even confronted the Democratic presumptive nominee, in person, and pointed out to him on his cell phone that Trump condemned the hate groups, but Biden still repeats the lie.`

You will only find the video of Biden saying a Klan-affiliated group was made up of “many fine people”, and you will only see the video of Trump’s condemnation of racist hate groups here, because the Fake News media will ignore them both, just like every other lie they tell.
