An actual scorched-earth campaign would be to note that Biden's collegial working relationship with James Eastland centered on their mutual opposition to busing for school integration, and that his relationship with Strom Thurmond centere don expanding the federal carceral state. — PolitiTweet.org

Amazing to see people call "Hey maybe don't praise your working relationship with one of the most evil men to serve in the US Senate" a "scorched earth" campaign. — PolitiTweet.org

hmm, maybe i’m just intolerant but it seems like there’s a difference between “i disagree with this senator on taxes and social spending” and “i disagree with this senator on whether i’m a subhuman mongrel who should be subjugated or exterminated” — PolitiTweet.org

anyway back in march i argued that "The possibility of defeating Trump without defeating Trumpism looms over Joe Biden’s possible run for the 2020 Democratic nomination" and so far he's not proving me wrong https://t.co/vA54aAuPxN — PolitiTweet.org

Literally had this thought earlier this morning. Joe Biden speaking nostalgically about working with segregationists is halfway to Trent Lott behavior. Telling your black rival that *he* needs to apologize to *you* for having a problem with it brings you all the way there. — PolitiTweet.org

@fivefifths And as is probably typical for someone who doesn't seem to believe that structural racial inequality exists, he doesn't seem to understand that the whole point of American racism is that the racialized conditions persist and reproduce themselves even if the laws don't. — PolitiTweet.org

@fivefifths It sort of concedes the whole argument. "We should have reparations for people who were alive during Jim Crow" = "We should have reparations for people who experienced a certain set of deprivations and disadvantages." After that you're just quibbling over the line. — PolitiTweet.org
