The lies just keep pouring out of the mouth of Joe Biden. He claimed he went to a Black university. The university said no, he didn’t. He claimed he marched with Blacks during the civil rights movement. He didn’t. Now, he is claiming that he attended church services as a child at a Black church. He didn’t. He did meet the pastor of the church but not until he was an adult.
Biden claimed he attended the Union Baptist Church in Wilmington, Delaware. The funny thing is that people who have attended the church their entire lives don’t ever remembering him attending. In those days not many whites attended Black churches, so they would have remembered him. He did meet the minister , Rev. Otis Herring, but as an adult, just after his wife died in a car accident.
Herring’s longtime assistant Phyllis Drummond said positively that Biden never attended the church. Juanita Matthew, a veteran attendee at the church also said that she does not remember Biden.
“When I was a teenager in Delaware, for real, I got involved in the civil rights movement. … I’d go to 8 o’clock Mass, then I’d go to Reverend Herring’s church where we’d meet in order to organize and figure where we were going to go, whether we were going to desegregate the Rialto movie theater or what we were going to do. I got my education, for real, in the black church, and that’s not hyperbole, it’s a fact.”
“I was raised in the black church politically — not a joke. … That’s what I’m part of. That’s where my political identity comes from. And it’s the single most loyal constituency I’ve ever had.”
Biden keeps telling whoppers in an effort to boost himself within the Black community. He told of being arrested in South Africa when he tried to visit Nelson Mandela. Problem was that Mandela was 700 miles away from where he claimed he had been arrested. He later admitted he lied.
He also said that he called Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic a damn war criminal. There were quite a few people there at the time but not one person remembers Biden saying that.
In August 2019. The Washington Post reported of Biden’s tale of making a dangerous trip into Konar province in Afghanistan to recognize the heroism of a Navy captain. The Post wrote, “Based on interviews with more than a dozen U.S. troops, their commanders and Biden campaign officials, it appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened.”
The Free Beacon pointed out, “Biden said over the summer that he had been ‘involved with the civil rights movement, the African-American community since I was a junior in high school, desegregating movie theaters.’ But Biden said previously he ‘didn’t know any black people’ until he started working at the majority-black pool in Wilmington in 1962.”
None of this washes based on his real record. He voted against the 1964 civil rights bill and was dead set against busing.
