On MLK Day, Video Circulates of Biden Saying ‘Dr. King’s Assassination’ Did Not Have Worldwide Impact of George Floyd’s Death

As the United States celebrated and honored Martin Luther King Jr., video of then-presidential candidate Joe Biden surfaced comparing him to a very, very different human and scenario: the death of George Floyd.

Biden made the remarks in June of 2020, shortly after Floyd’s death, during an economic reopening roundtable in Philadelphia. Biden was comparing the two men in a discussion about how smartphones have changed movements:

“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said during the discussion. “It’s just like television changed the Civil Rights movement for the better when they saw Bull Connor and his dogs ripping the clothes off of elderly black women going to church and firehoses ripping the skin off of young kids.”

“What happened to George Floyd — now you got how many people around the country, millions of cell phones,” he added. “It’s changed the way everybody’s looking at this. Look at the millions of people marching around the world.”

The circulation of the video sparked intense conversation. While some say Biden was merely comparing the impact of their deaths, others were shocked and disgusted that Biden would ever draw a comparison of any kind between the two.

“Very small minded to compare MLK to Floyd just because of the color of their skin. They were not in the same category of humans on any level” tweeted one user. Another wrote “this is truly a disgusting comment. George Floyd was no #MLK @JoeBiden !! He was a full time criminal and drug addict!”

    MLK’s assassination eventually led to positive changes, George Floyd’s didn’t! Floyd’s led to the darkest days of this country, and a total reversal of MLK’s Dream!

    This comes from Joe Biden who voted Against civil rights act on many occasions. He live in apartments that were WHITE ONLY, no people of color were allowed. That’s why Kamala Harris was his vp running mate and not stacy Abrams. Using Joe’s own words is because Kamala “ain’t black”

    This is a huge insult to MLK’s family, an insult to those who fought for civil rights and those who fought to free the slaves. FJB and his handlers are promoting a scumbag just like themselves.
