Perhaps there’s a reason why Neo-Nazi white supremacist Richard Spencer so wholeheartedly endorsed Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden two months ago.

Maybe it’s because Biden’s values run parallel to the values of Spencer …?

As evidence, one need only look at Biden’s record.

Speaking with CNN’s John Berman early Wednesday morning, only hours after the contentious first 2020 presidential debate, Trump 2020 campaign press secretary Hogan Gidley laid this record out for the whole world to see.

“Do you have any idea, John, what an exalted cyclops of the KKK is? Because Joe Biden sure does. He spoke at a funeral for one and praised him profusely. Any idea who George Wallace is? Joe Biden sure does. He thanked the person who gave him the award for George Wallace’s name,” he bluntly said.

Fact-check: TRUE.

Ten years ago, on July 2nd, 2010, Biden delivered a eulogy for Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former “Exalted Cyclops” of the Ku Klux Klan.

Watch:

As for Biden’s ties to notorious racist George Wallace …

“A September 20, 1987, story in the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Biden had bragged about receiving an award from George Wallace, the former Alabama governor and one of America’s most notorious segregationists,” Rolling Stone magazine reported last year.

“The same story went to quote a presidential primary campaign speech Biden had given in Alabama in which he said ‘we (Delawareans) were on the South’s side in the Civil War.'”

Dovetailing back to the discussion on CNN, as Gidley continued speaking, Berman persistently tried to cut him off. Nevertheless, Gidley was able to convey most of what he’d been intent on sharing with the world.

“Any idea what a racial jungle is? It’s what Joe Biden doesn’t want his kids to grow up in. Joe Biden’s record on race is absolutely disgusting,” he continued.

“Donald Trump was opening up his properties to African Americans and Jewish people while you were still in local television news, John. The fact is, this president has a record of respect and understanding these groups like nobody else.”

Fact-check: TRUE.

“My children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point,” Biden said while working against school desegregation in the 1970s, according to The Gazette.

At this point, Berman began shrieking that “Biden can defend his own record.” That was a stunning statement coming from someone whose network defends Biden constantly.

“Yes, and I’m here to tell you that record, which CNN refuses to report!” Gidley replied.

Listen to the discussion below:

The remarks from Gidley were prompted by a discussion about the president’s widely misinterpreted debate statement concerning white supremacy.

Like others in the left-wing media, Berman kept claiming that the president had refused to condemn white supremacy, when the reality is he’d denounced it “over and over and over again” in the past and arguably once again during Tuesday’s debate.

“Sure, I’m willing to do,” he’d said at the debate after being pressed to denounce white supremacy.

Rather than spelling it out in explicitly terms once again for the 100th time, however, he’d then tried to turn attention to all the violence and racism being perpetrated by the left-wing extremists affiliated with Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

Why? Perhaps because like journalist Michael Tracey, he believes “white supremacist violence” is a fictional bogeyman — relatively speaking — when compared to all the violence being committed by left-wing extremists.

Left-wing extremists who have yet to be denounced by Biden, to be exact:

Regardless, all this comes two months after America’s most notorious living white supremacist, Richard Spencer, endorsed Biden, not Trump, for the 2020 race.

Look:

Writing about this endorsement, the editorial board of The Gazette, a Pulitzer Prize-winning daily newspaper based in Colorado Springs, wrote that it came as no shocker.

“This should surprise no one familiar with Biden and his past, even though the Biden campaign disavows the endorsement. … The first night of the Republican National Convention on Monday had to offend Spencer and other white nationalists because the night’s keynote speaker, Sen. Tim Scott, is Black and fights for civil rights,” the board opined.

Note that the piece was written around the end of this year’s Republican National Convention.

“The lineup of speakers included Maryland congressional candidate Kim Klacik, a Black woman running to improve Black lives in Baltimore. Herschel Walker, a retired NFL running back, told of a nearly 40-year close friendship with Trump. Walker is Black and told the country Trump has no racist inclinations,” the board continued.

“For our country’s crackpot white supremacists, the first night of Trump’s convention was a repulsive display of ethnic and racial diversity. For them, Trump’s presidency has been a nightmare. Before the pandemic, his free-market opportunity zones, tax-cutting, and deregulatory policies led to record-setting prosperity for minority demographics.”

The board concluded, “After nearly four years of Trump, Spencer and his followers have the choice of Biden. He should look pretty good to them.

Indeed.
