On Wednesday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden made a bold statement, saying that the death of George Floyd was bigger than the assassination of civil rights icon Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Biden made these comments during a roundtable discussion in Philadelphia.

Biden Claims George Floyd’s Death Has Had More ‘Worldwide Impact’ Than Martin Luther King Jr.’s Assassination

“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said.

The former vice president continued, “Because just like television changed the civil rights movement for the better when they saw Bull Connor’s dogs ripping the clothes off of elderly black women who were trying to go to church, and fire hoses ripping the skin off of young kids.”

It should be noted that Bull Connor, the Commissioner of Public Safety for Birmingham, Alabama during the 1960s racially-charged, civil rights protests in that city, was a Democrat.

“That — all those folks around the country who didn’t have any black populations heard about this, but they didn’t believe it, but they saw it, it was impossible for them to close their eyes,” Biden continued.

 

“Well, what happened to George Floyd, now you’ve got how many people around the country? Millions of cell phones, it’s changed the way everybody’s looking at this,” he said.

“Look at the millions of people marching around the world,” Biden added.

The 2020 presidential election has been in sort of a holding pattern due to the global coronavirus pandemic which was followed by nationwide protests against police brutality after African American George Floyd was recklessly killed by Minneapolis police officers.

Just Wait Until the Debates

But these lockdowns of various kinds will eventually end. They already are. America is reopening and getting back to work. Protests, including violence, are still happening, but the country is in a much different place than it was a week ago.

It won’t be long before the election campaign is operating at full capacity again, including the debates.

Joe Biden has been making a fool of himself at every turn without anyone’s help.

What will happen when he finally faces Donald Trump on the debate stage?
