U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) blasted President Biden’s racial demagoguery on “The Faulkner Focus” Friday while voicing “disgust” with Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) who called the Senate “racist” for not passing the left’s voting rights legislation that would have federalized elections.

Kennedy proclaimed that the hateful rhetoric from Democrats calling Republicans racists needs to stop. He stated that “the American people are getting pretty tired of being called” racist.

“The Democratic congressman, he takes his cues from his leader, President Biden. I don’t hate anybody. I look for grace wherever I can find it. I have spent time with him. President Biden is a nice guy. He is. Is President Biden a perfect person? No. Does he try to do better every day? Also no. Therein lies the problem. He keeps trying to stuff more diapers down the toilet,” Kennedy colorfully asserted.

“He goes down to Georgia two weeks ago and demonstrated raw gut racial demagoguery. And that’s what the congressman is just parroting. … President Biden basically said to tens of millions of Americans who don’t want to have an election month — they want to have an Election Day — who believe that if you vote, you ought to have to prove you are who you say you are. He basically told all the tens of millions of Americans who believe that that they are Bull Connor, George Wallace racists,” he told host host Harris Faulkner.

“Now, it offended me. It offended tens of millions of Americans,” Kennedy remarked. “I was offended when Vice President Harris when she was running against President Biden in the primaries, I was offended when she all but called President Biden a racist for not supporting getting 10-year-old kids up at 4:30 in the morning and busing them for two hours. Lots of Americans oppose, black and white opposed the busing. She called him a racist for it. I thought that was racial demagoguery.”

“This is not helping our country at all. I will say this: The American people are getting pretty tired of being called a racist or a traitor or a Nazi because they don’t agree with the president’s woke neosocialist agenda. And that is why his poll numbers are on a journey to the center of the earth. And he needs to stop it,” Kennedy concluded.

Kennedy’s anger was also directed at Johnson who would go on to accuse Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) of promoting “white privilege” and “white power” for objecting to the legislation.

“Voting rights is not going away even though the Senate last night failed to do what it should have done and in some respects, we can call it a racist Senate,” Johnson declared during a remote meeting of the House Judiciary Committee. He was referring to the bipartisan Senate majority that voted to block the Democrats’ election overhaul bills Wednesday night.

“The same way we can talk about racism when it comes to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle making statements today about black people and Democrats race-baiting. It’s like, you know, when you mention about how much racism still exists in the soil of America they want to plant their heads in that soil and refuse to acknowledge what’s in the soil,” he continued.

Johnson was referring to a statement made by Roy, who used the term “race-baiting” to describe Democrat assertions of “voter suppression” and the party’s efforts to push the federal election overhaul.

He went on to claim that Republicans have become “emboldened” due to former President Trump and what Johnson called his “Make America White Again” movement while using the terms “white power” and “white privilege” to describe Roy.

“I’m just blown away by where we have fallen in our discourse on this committee,” Johnson commented after accusing Roy and the Senate of racism.

“I would question the assertion of my ‘privilege’ and ‘white power,’” Roy responded.

“Democrats have nothing left to play but the race card given a year of devastating crime, open borders, appeasement of our enemies, and failed COVID policies,” Roy said in a statement to Fox News. “So you accuse the grandson of an orphaned poor West Texas farmer who lost his farm in the Depression of ‘white privilege’ and you go back to race-bating. Par for the course.”
