Biden is now claiming that as a teenager he attended a black church in Wilmington, Delaware several times.
But there’s one big problem…
None of the veteran members ever remember seeing him there.
Herring’s longtime assistant Phyllis Drummond said flatly that Biden did not attend the church, asserting, “No. Not at our building. I think he was probably in Claymont, (Delaware) (or) in Pennsylvania then,” as The Washington Free Beacon reported. Juanita Matthew, a veteran attendee at the church, said she had no memory of Biden’s presence when he was a teenager, adding that Biden met Herring after Biden’s wife and daughter were killed in a car accident in 1972.
Last January, Biden spoke at the Bethlehem Baptist Church in South Carolina, where he said, “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,” as The New York Post noted.Speaking at an NAACP event in Iowa earlier in January, Biden said, “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,” as The New York Times reported.
Biden inventing stories to burnish his reputation seems to be a common occurrence; he has claimed he was arrested in South Africa in the 1970s when he visited Nelson Mandela. The Biden campaign later admitted that the incident never happened.
For the love, will someone on Biden’s campaign just tell him to stop?
He’s literally the image of white privilege…why is he trying so desperately to be something he clearly is not?
