Biden shamelessly repeats debunked claim he was ‘very engaged in the Civil Rights Movement’

President Joe Biden has a rich history of plagiarism, distortions and outright lies that makes him the consummate politician in the sense of the populace despising such politicians — even if he DID receive 81 million pandemic-era votes.

On Monday, Biden was set to deliver a Labor Day speech in Pittsburgh at the United Steel Workers of America Local Union 2227, when he began rambling on about growing up in the same area as a local official. Before long, he was spinning a yarn about being “deeply involved” in the civil rights movement — a tale that has been debunked before.

“Moved to a little steel town called Claymont, Delaware. Claymont used to have more steel. It used to have almost 5,000 steel workers. The whole community was built — it was a company town, literally. And steel died. It was dying in — there’s not a single steel worker left,” he said.

“And we know what happened was, about midway through my — I got elected to — I got very engaged in — in my case, the Civil Rights Movement. And as a kid, I was — I worked a lot in the movement at work,” Biden continued. “And I got deeply involved in the Democratic Party because the Democratic Party in Delaware was a southern Democratic Party then. We were more of a southern state than — than a northeastern state. And I got involved, and one thing led to another. And one day, a group came to me of the senior members of the party. They said they wanted me to run for the Senate.”

The Republican National Committee was only too happy to share the misinformation, tweeting: “This is a lie that has been repeatedly debunked.”

Naturally, the RNC followed that up with Biden’s very own words disavowing what he had just claimed above.

Even CNN anchor Jake Tapper reported on Biden lying about his actions during the civil rights movement, as seen here:

To get a feel for how little truth factored into the political pandering seen from Biden on Monday, he told the union crowd that he ran to restore “decency” — Hunter Biden notwithstanding — this being a re-do of his 2020 campaign schtick about restoring America’s soul.

“I said I was running for three reasons,” Biden said in wrapping up his speech. “One, to restore the soul of America. By that, I meant decency, honor, meaning what you say, literally treating people with some respect.”

On the very same day, in Milwaukee, he essentially called a man exercising his right to free speech by heckling him an “idiot.”

“The second reason I said I was running is I’m so sick and tired of trickle-down economics. I wanted to build the economy from the bottom up and the middle out. Because when that happens, the wealthy do very, very well. They do very well. And everybody has got a shot. Everybody has got a shot,” Biden said, before ending on a real doozy. “And the third reason I said I was running: because I wanted to unite the country. And because you can’t maintain a democracy without being able to reach a consensus.”

There’s not much unity in calling tens of millions of MAGA Republicans “a threat to the very soul of this nation,” as Biden just did.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
