That wasnât all Joe said. He also asked his audience to choose a side in the war for âvoting rightsâ:
President Biden called for changing the Senate filibuster rules in order to pass voting rights legislation.
"How do you want to be remembered?" Biden said,: "Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?" https://t.co/l3oUhvjr1R

Joe Biden wasnât arrested during the Civil Rights movement. And while weâre calling him out for that lie, we might as well also point out that itâs unlikely that he wouldâve minded being on the side of George Wallace.
Biden says it's time to pick a side. "Do you want to be on the side of MLK? Or George Wallace."
George Wallace was a Democrat. Like Biden.

Not only was George Wallace a Democrat like Joe Biden, but George Wallace was a Democrat respected by Joe Biden.

We know that Joeâs memory is fuzzy, but did he forget about that?
"Do you want to be the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?
In 1973, Biden bragged that Wallace considered him âone of the outstanding young politicians of America.â (He made up a story about winning a Wallace award.) In 1975: the âDem Party could stand a liberal George Wallaceâ

"Everyone I don't like is George Wallace!" screamed the elderly president who once bragged about his association with George Wallace. pic.twitter.com/6cfjcSNA3E

If youâre a self-described Civil Rights crusader, you donât boast about any association with George Wallace. Thatâs just not something you do.
Umm, itâs from 1967. Is this really all you have?

Well, if all Joe Biden has is accusing everyone who disagrees with him of being the second coming of George Wallace, then that little snippet is pretty significant.
'Omg that was forever ago what does it matter??' argue the left over Biden's open and proud political association with segregationists as they demand 200 year old statues be torn downâŠ

Then: Biden bragged about being praised by segregationist George Wallace
Now: Biden accuses you of being George Wallace if you oppose his radical political agenda https://t.co/isUfr3MUmC

Itâs certainly a bold strategy. We look forward to seeing how it pays off in November.
Joe Biden just suggested that every American opposed to a federal takeover of elections and a Dem power grab is comparable to a George Wallace supporter. In case youâre wondering how he managed to achieve a worse favorability than even Trump. Good luck to Dems in November.
