President Joe “Fake Claims” Biden has once again alleged he participated in the civil rights movement – an allegation which is unproven at best, and an outright lie in the worst-case scenario.
Biden made this claim amid an important anniversary during a speech in Selma, Alabama.
Biden’s Fresh Civil Rights Claim
There have been several topics on which Joe Biden made unproven or even wrongful claims – such as his Amtrak story about his use of public transportation.
He told this seven times in public with some variations, featuring a train conductor who passed away before the described events.
Sleepy Joe was in Selma, Alabama earlier this week for the 58th year since the Bloody Sunday march in 1965, one of the defining moments of the civil rights movement.
In his speech on the anniversary, Biden told the audience he was up north at the time, a “student in the civil rights movement.”
The 80-year-old Democratic president, known for his multiple senior moments and speech blunders, declared in 1965, he was feeling “guilty” for not being with the activists in Selma.
Yet, there has been “no historical evidence” whatsoever to back up Biden’s allegations that he was somehow ever a participant in the civil rights movement, Fox News reported.
Over the course of his political career of almost 50 years, Biden claimed several times that he was somehow a civil rights activist, but on at least one occasion, in the 1980s, he admitted there had never been anything of the sort.
Thus, in 1983, he alleged when he was 17, he took part in sit-ins to protest the segregation of restaurants and movie theaters.
Biden said he had been moved by hearing the voices of then-Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus and journalist Mike Wallace. Biden insisted his soul “raged” when Bull Connor, the former Public Safety Commissioner in Birmingham, Alabama, used dogs against civil rights protesters.

An Admission and More False Stories
The report points out, though, that it “does not appear” Joe Biden ever took part in any anti-segregation sit-ins.
Starting in the 1980s, Empty Shelves Joe has been claiming that as a high school student, he walked out of a restaurant that refused service to a black student.
The black student in question, though, later refuted Biden’s claims. In a 1987 interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, Frank Hutchins said Biden and other white students hadn’t even noticed the situation.
In 1987, however, Joe Biden, at a time a senator from Delaware and a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, admitted he was “not an activist” in the civil rights movement.
Instead, he declared, he had believed in its principles and had been “very concerned” about it.
Biden added in the 1960s, he was working at an all-black swimming pool in Wilmington, Delaware and became “involved” in what black people were “thinking” and “feeling” at the time.
Nevertheless, in January 2022, Biden still told the campus of Clark Atlanta University and Morehouse College, historically black schools, that he even “got arrested” during the civil rights movement more than once.
Decades of Lies
Joe Biden was never involved in the civil rights movement. Biden even admitted so in 1987: “I was not an activist…I was not out marching. I was not down in Selma. I was not anywhere else.” pic.twitter.com/ahWMQfxEBy

Biden once again claims that he was “involved in the civil rights movement” and that he’d “go down to the black church and plan what we’re gonna do in terms of desegregation.”
Literally none of that is true. All complete debunked lies.
