The following article, Flashback: Biden Says ‘Politicians Can Take Away’ the First Amendment ‘If We Want’ to [Listen], was first published on Flag And Cross.
Democrats often attempt to use the Constitution as a Swiffer pad. Too often, actually. Back in 1974, former Vice President Joe Biden said something immensely wild about the First Amendment. Listen for yourself…
Former Vice President Joe Biden told a journalist in 1974 that “cruddy politicians” like himself could “take away” the First Amendment if they wanted.
The current 2020 Democrat frontrunner made the comments to Washingtonian magazine while being interviewed for a profile published in June 1974. Biden, then only 31-years-old, came to regret the interview, as his penchant for gaffes and insensitive remarks—traits defining later portions of his career—heavily colored the piece. At the time, however, Biden appeared eager to discuss his life as the nation’s youngest senator.
BIDEN: “I am proud to be a politician. There is no other walk of life which can do more good for mankind than politics. It influences everything that happens to the American people.”
BIDEN: “And, whether you like it or not, young lady, us cruddy politicians can take away that First Amendment of yours if we want to.”
While in New Hampshire, Joe was confronted by an anti-Trump woman.
He agrees with her that 45 is “illegitimate.”
Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential primary frontrunner Joe Biden said “I absolutely agree” with a woman who described herself as having a “very severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” and said that Trump “is an illegitimate president.”
WOMAN: “He is an illegitimate president in my mind. That’s it. I think all the talk about impeachment and what the Democrats should do, that’s fine, it’s theoretical at this point. Let them investigate, let them subpoena, let them go to the Supreme Court, he’s illegitimate. and my biggest fear is that he’s going to do it again with the help of Vlad, his best pal, and we’re going to be stuck for six more years of this guy. And that is terrifying. It’s terrifying.”
BIDEN: “Would you be my vice presidential candidate? Folks, look, I absolutely agree.”
Is this the D equivalent of the birther movement?

The former VP can’t seem to escape his gaffe-prone ways, yet continues to remain in the public eye.
When it comes down to it and Joe goes head-to-head with President Trump in the 2020 general election, Biden stands an excellent chance of being a thrice failed candidate for POTUS.
Check out this recently unearthed clip of Biden sounding eerily similar to Trump when it comes to Mexico – and it’s not from that long ago.
A review of rhetoric from Joe Biden’s record on immigration. It included boasting about needing a 700 mile fence to stop “tons…tons…tons” of drugs from “corrupt Mexico” in 2006. Jailing employers who hire “illegals” and not allowing sanctuary cities.
