In an interview with Breitbart News Saturday, Paris Dennard, an esteemed conservative commentator, made clear that as far as he’s concerned, the Democratic Party “put a bigot at the top of the ticket” this year.
“I think Joe Biden is an old bigot who doesn’t really care about advancing anything except for his career,” Dennard, who is Black, told the radio show, according to Breitbart.
“He should stay in his basement”
In Dennard’s view, the former vice president’s attempt to reach African American voters has been nothing more than “pandering.” The commentator added that Biden “should stay in his basement.”
“His record of saying overtly racist, offensive things, insulting things to Black people, about Black people, about Indian-Americans, is out in the open,” he remarked, according to Breitbart.
Asked if the Black Lives Matter movement and accompanying protests over police brutality are evidence of Democrats trying to improve their chances this election season, Dennard told Breitbart that’s “100%” the case.
“They’re nervous because President Trump in 3.5 years has done more for the Black community than any other president in history in that first term,” the commentator insisted.
“What have I done for you?”
According to Breitbart, Dennard also challenged Americans to examine Trump’s record: “Ask, ‘what have I done for you lately?’ Ask, ‘What have I done for you for the past 2 1/2 years?’ Ask, ‘What am I going to do for you in the future?’
“When you ask the same questions to Joe Biden, the answer is, ‘Nothing but harm, destroy, and pretty insulting,’” Dennard said, as Breitbart reported.
Indeed, Biden has taken flak throughout the campaign season for his past remarks and actions that many say come in contrast to the narrative he’s preaching today. In 2007, Biden famously said that then-Sen. Barack Obama was notable for being the first African American presidential candidate who was “articulate” and “clean,” as NBC News reported
The former vice president also caused controversy in May, according to Fox News, when he told a Black radio talk show host: “I tell you, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.”
South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott (R), who is also Black, reacted with derision to Biden’s words, accusing the long-time Democratic politician of being “arrogant” and “condescending.”
“For Joe Biden to say to 1.3 million African-Americans who voted for President Trump that they ‘ain’t Black’ is arrogant, condescending, and it frankly speaks to the families of the 1.3 million African Americans as well,” Cotton told Fox. “And frankly, I am just amazed that the last decade Democrats have had an entitlement mentality that they are entitled to the Black vote.”
