Joe Biden has hired political strategist Symone Sanders as a senior aide to his campaign. Sanders has previously declared that “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now.”
Sanders made the comments shortly after Donald Trump won the presidential election in November of 2016. The opinion, odd in that she had been a spokeswoman for the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders, was in response to the prospect of Howard Dean becoming DNC chairman.
“In my opinion we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now,” she said in an extremely racist assessment.
“The Democratic Party is diverse, and it should be reflected as so in leadership and throughout the staff, at the highest levels,” Sanders added. “From the vice chairs to the secretaries all the way down to the people working in the offices at the DNC.”
Coincidentally, the Associated Press claims that the hiring of the former CNN contributor is “add[ing] diversity.”
She’s backing up all that diversity talk by supporting an older, white, male gentleman for president … for the second time. Oh, and she doesn’t want white men in roles of leadership. Except for the white man at the top. Apparently.
More Race Baiting
Aside from declaring ‘white people’ aren’t really welcome amongst the Democrat party leadership, Sanders has a rich history of seeing racism in every facet of life.

She claimed that the FBI wasn’t able to stop Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz because he wasn’t black or shouting ‘Allahu Akbar.’
“All I want to say is, had the Parkland shooter been black or brown, we wouldn’t be talking about the types of legislation we could and could not make happen,” she argued. “Because if he was yelling ‘Allah Akbar,’ Congress and the president would have been tweeting about it, and they would have swooped in-”
We’ve since learned that systemic failures at the school and the Broward County Sheriff’s office contributed to the struggle to identify Cruz as a risk.
Sanders also has a history of stirring up trouble and being detained at airports, then implying law enforcement have targeted her based on skin color rather than noting she had behaved obnoxiously.
Yesterday, I was violently arrested in the security screening line at LaGuardia airport. I was taken offsite & issued a summons for “disorderly conduct.” My attorney & I look forward to the opportunity to highlight this injustice & righting what we believe to be a profound wrong.

In other false accusations, she smeared Covington Catholic teenager Nicholas Sandmann, who was wrongfully accused of acting in a racist manner toward agitator Nathan Phillips, of being coached by a PR team when defending himself.

Sanders blamed “toxic masculinity” for the killing of 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts, when in fact it was at the hands of an illegal immigrant.
Biden is kicking off his campaign with demonstrable lies and hiring a demonstrable liar. But then, isn’t that a hallmark of every single Democrat campaign?
