Yesterday, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suckered her Democrat compatriots into trivializing the Holocaust.
It’s hard to imagine things going worse for the Democrats among the non-deranged, but it did.
From The Washington Post:
Um… what now?
Joe Biden wistfully recalled on Tuesday an era in which he was able to get along with segregationist senators even though they “didn’t agree on much of anything.”
Dismissing criticism from his party’s left-wing flank that he is too conciliatory toward political adversaries, the former vice president told a crowd of about 100 people gathered for a fundraiser at the Carlyle hotel in New York that one of his strengths was “bringing people together.”
He knew this made him “old-fashioned” in the eyes of restive Democrats, he said. But he remained adamant that political fellowship of the sort he maintained with white supremacists in the 1970s was not just possible in today’s climate — but the best answer to the forces elevating President Trump.
“If we can’t reach a consensus in our system, what happens?” Biden said at the fundraiser, according to a pool report. “It encourages and demands the abuse of power by a president.”
As evidence of his ability to forge personal bonds, the former vice president pointed to his 36-year career in the Senate, which stretched back to 1973 and overlapped with the service of leading Southern Democrats. Biden cited the late Sens. James O. Eastland of Mississippi and Herman E. Talmadge of Georgia, who were both steadfastly opposed to civil rights and racial integration.
That is one hell of a stance to take.
Senator James O. Eastland, a Democrat from Mississippi encouraged states to willfully violate Brown vs. Board of Education and continue to keep schools segregated after the Supreme Court ruling.
Herman Talmage, Democratic Senator and Governor of Georgia, closed schools rather than desegregate them. He also boycotted the 1964 DNC Convention to protest the signing of the Civil Rights Act by LBJ. Just for good measure, he was a raging drunk who was censured for embezzling everything that wasn’t nailed down.
These are some real quality guys for Biden to reminisce about.
“Sure he had a white hood in his closet, but he was a hell of a nice guy and a great drinking buddy.” Sure, Joe, just go with that. That’s going to win hearts and minds.
But if that’s not enough, watch this:
Wow, Burgess Owens just stunned everyone:
“I used to be a Democrat until I did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race… Let's pay restitution. How about the Democratic Party pay for all the misery brought to my race…" pic.twitter.com/ZXuwncFreV

That is so beautiful I want to fap to it.
I don’t think anybody there was expecting that.
Maybe the DNC needs to take a couple of days off and regroup, because this is not boding well for them
