Embarrassed Biden Team Rejects Endorsement From Notorious White Supremacist

Democrats are reaping the whirlwind from the seeds hate that they have sowed and the endorsement of a notorious white supremacist shows that the party truly has a big tent.
On Monday, Richard Spencer a man who organized the 2017 Charlottesville protests that erupted into chaos when ANTIFA showed up to fight neo-Nazis threw his support behind the Harris-Biden ticket because he was angry with President Trump.
According to the hatemonger Spencer, "Trump is an obvious disaster" ostensibly because he is not a racist and the party of the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement is a better alternative in terms of recruitment if the Dems retake the White House.
Spencer announced his support of lunchbucket Joe via Twitter.
Team Biden quickly realized that Spencer's nod is really bad optics, especially since the former vice president has based his campaign on the insidious fine people on "both sides" lie.
They quickly rejected the endorsement
A spokesperson for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden rejected an endorsement from alt-right figure Richard Spencer late Sunday evening, calling the white nationalist's views "absolutely repugnant."
"When Joe Biden says we are in a battle for the soul of our nation against vile forces of hate who have come crawling out from under rocks, you are the epitome of what he means. What you stand for is absolutely repugnant. Your support is 10,000% percent unwelcome here," Andrew Bates, the director of rapid response for Biden's campaign, tweeted.
Newsweek reached out to the Biden campaign for further comment, but it did not respond by the time of publication.
Spencer, 42, previously backed Trump in the 2016 election. But he tweeted an endorsement of Biden on Sunday. "I plan to vote for Biden and a straight democratic ticket. It's not based on 'accelerationism' or anything like that; the liberals are clearly more competent people," he wrote.
Team Biden's denouncing what Spencer stands for as being "absolutely repugnant" which is ironic considering that Biden and the Dems goal seems to be igniting a race war with their incendiary demagoguery which aligns perfectly with human scum like him and his movement.
As the saying goes, birds of a feather flock together.
