Florida Republican Rep. Byron Donalds called out Joe Biden on his unmistakable racist dog whistle to Democrat and leftist bigots. A dog whistle is a subtle message aimed at a specific group. It is put in such a way to give the speaker plausible deniability, as if the message is at a pitch it could only be heard by a dog/targeted group.
FNC: “Republican Rep. Byron Donalds slammed President Biden on Friday for invoking Jim Crow during his first formal press conference, saying he is ‘irresponsibly injecting race’ into the conversation. Biden on Thursday, during his first press conference since taking office, referenced Jim Crow when defending the Democrats’ H.R. 1 voting reform bill and their efforts to get rid of the filibuster. Biden was also asked whether he worries that Republicans in states across the country proposing legislation to curb voting access could cost Democrats control of Congress during the 2022 midterms.”
“I’m convinced that we’ll be able to stop this, because it is the most pernicious thing—this makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle,” Biden said.
4) Donalds: "Jim Crow might not mean anything to President Biden, considering he joined segregationists in opposing bussing and eulogized known racists like Robert Byrd, but that dark stain on our republic is personal to me and many Black Americans like me."

In response, Donalds made a fool of Biden.”In 2005, then-Sen. Biden said, ‘At its core, the filibuster is not about stopping a nominee or a bill; it is about compromise and moderation. That is why the Founders put unlimited debate in. That is what it is about, engendering compromise and moderation. Fast-forward to today, and now President Biden is irresponsibly injecting race and the travesty of Jim Crow to oppose the filibuster. Time after time, Democrats resort to the race card to shield them from having to answer for their hypocrisy and radical policies.
“Ensuring elections take place legally and adequately isn’t racist; it is righteous,” Donalds hit SR1 as a “direct assault on our Constitution and the sanctity of our election system” it would “do irreparable harm to the future of our republic.
Donalds concluded, “The Constitution outlines the responsibility of administering elections, and that power is for the states, not the federal government Abolishing voter I.D. laws, ending signature verification, and putting into place taxpayer-funded campaigns is detrimental to every American’s right to a free and fair election—and the harmful rhetoric of President Biden cannot evade this fact.”
